Katana Nova Cat This is a truly awesome tribute to the Christmas-themed sequel to a game where you date pigeons. How it exists, I'm not sure, but this music is still great (as are the games that inspired it). Favorite track: The Scorpion's Fire (Vocals).

From the shackles of the earth We rise up to the realm of dreams A path awakened in the sleeping sky Found the keys for the eclipse And flew away into the black Past the Swan towards infinity And while the moon is dark We travel on hand in hand Behind us the earth Fades to black and disappears Take a ride And let the stars be your guide Until the daybreak We follow the planisphere Across the bridge of stars Towards a world never seen For now you're free On the wings of a dream Beyond the borderlines Ascending over the skies Like diamonds we'll shine In the ocean divine Remember the day the night slept Walking free again Outside the tethers tied to you by death A journey on towards the corners of imagination Cross the river glowing bright And as you find your way Hold on to the map of obsidian And while the moon is dark I won't let go of your hand Behind us the earth Fades to black and disappears Take a ride And let the stars be your guide Until the daybreak We follow the planisphere Across the bridge of stars Towards a world never seen For now you're free On the wings of a dream Beyond the borderlines Ascending over the skies Like diamonds we'll shine In the ocean divine Remember the day the night slept On towards the southern cross Through mystic constellations I want this dream to last forever The pathway down to earth Will fade away behind us And we'll be lost inside forever I never want this night to end Will we wake if morning comes again Across the bridge of stars Towards a world never seen For now you're free On the wings of a dream Beyond the borderlines Ascending over the skies Like diamonds we'll shine In the ocean divine So remember the day And while the sunlight sleeps We can become anything We're lost in dreams On a quest for a king On solar wings ascend Imagine life without end For the ghost, for the hunter The migrant and king For the sleepers beside us All sharing the dream Would you shatter the false star And live once again Remember the day the night slept

He wished for death to take him From the world of pain and hatred And through a dark deception Someone led him there His final lie "It won't be frightening if we go together" Stayed with him Even as he watched him steal his life Woke on the train, afraid and lost Not knowing where he's going At light speed through the sky The earth now out of sight So at the signal he escaped And found a room in darkness A chair and candle in the black With no one there Afraid, alone Betrayed by earth He lights the flame For this new world A star is born In false disguise And soon The kingdom will rise And the candle turned to a lighthouse In the heart of the kingdom of dreams (The king said...) No one is hurt With everyone here And if we all share one mind There's no need to fear And the beacon shone through the darkness And attracted souls to the light (And he said...) One will be all And all will be one So let their voices in harmony sing Long live the king The lonely room became A grand hall at the dream world's centre His hurt became a crown His chair became a throne He waits to welcome All the souls that stray from heaven's river To warmth and safety The new kings of everyone's home So the migrants came to the lighthouse In the heart of the kingdom of dreams And the lonely king Would welcome them in Make them one, and never to leave And the beacon shone through the darkness And attracted souls to the light All who came to his door Would accept their new form Join the chorus, and joyfully sing Long live the king Back and forth again The pendulum of time Keeping the dreamers Here in their eternal night Don't you leave me here You should not fear the sun Here in my private shell Now we all are one And so the star will shine The candle is burning Timeless and divine And we see the light All over the kingdom Shining for all time And the lighthouse Will call out to guide New souls towards the star So they can join with us and sing Long live the king Happily ever after Afraid, alone Betrayed by earth He lit the flame For this new world A star was born In false disguise And now The kingdom will rise Now the migrants come to the lighthouse On their journey from skies afar And the lonely king Will welcome them in And absorb them into the star And the flame will shine on forever Drawing souls to the kingdom of dreams And no one will ever be lonely again And as one they will joyfully sing Long live the king

Drawn to the false star of illusion Like travellers before But now it's time to leave the kingdom To face the tainted throne The king's in his palace Vengeance and malice Poison his heart and tie him down We rise from confusion Fight his delusion Taking his undeserved crown We're razing the kingdom We'll burn down the lighthouse A beacon of false hope for all Completing the circle Escaping the dreamworld And this heaven shall fall Tonight We're sounding the cry The kingdom will die We'll pull back the curtain And see through the lie I'll burn in the night I'll light up the sky You'll see And I'll be the scorpion's fire Down in the dark well all alone now The scorpion would die No chance to give another creature Just one more day of life He prayed for his next birth To give life to all earth Lit up the sky in crimson glow The end of this heaven Echoes the legend I am that scorpion now We're razing the kingdom We'll burn down the lighthouse A beacon of false hope for all Completing the circle Escaping the dreamworld And this heaven shall fall Tonight We're sounding the cry The kingdom will die We'll pull back the curtain And see through the lie I'll burn in the night I'll light up the sky You'll see And I'll be the scorpion's fire "And so the dream of the King comes to an end with the story he loved, and the light of the scorpion's fire will guide those lost in the dark towards the dawn. Behind him the false star shatters forever, and the dreamers carry him on through the morning sky." Welcome to the eclipse of the star The grand illusion falling so far On this night we shatter the lie And we see the dawn again We're razing the kingdom We'll burn down the lighthouse A beacon of hope for the blind Completing the circle Escaping the nightmare And the secret we'd find At last The sins of the past Tonight are unmasked The haunting inside me Will always outlast We're close to the end I promise, my friend You'll see me again I'm coming soon We're razing the kingdom We'll burn down the lighthouse A beacon of false hope for all Completing the circle Escaping the dreamworld And this heaven shall fall Tonight We're sounding the cry The kingdom will die We'll pull back the curtain And see through the lie I'll burn in the night I'll light up the sky You'll see And I'll be the scorpion's fire And the fire in the lighthouse will burn And the kingdom of dreams will burn For my friends once again I will burn And the scorpion's fire will burn

There was a time when I was scared like you I clung to memories both bad and good But then I saw a chance to live again Born from the ending of a world Hand in hand we travel on Because you can't stay here afraid Never knowing where we're going On the one galactic train An adventure through the universe Beyond the bridge of stars Till the call of earth Will bring us back again On our journey through the silent stars I'll show you the wonders of the endless universe We know that in the end The sun will rise again And tomorrow will be a good day All too soon it was my time to leave I never knew that you could be so hurt And still you're hiding something deep inside Beneath your hatred of the world I have found a memory waiting At the universe's end A memento of a life cut short The time we spent as friends And now even though you turn your back Deny I ever was I remember you And I'll be back again On our journey through the silent stars I'll show you the wonders of the endless universe We know that in the end The sun will rise again And tomorrow will be a good day This night One holy night On the galactic railroad Only you can decide When your journey ends As we make our way Across the astral plane All our memories fly away The sparks we leave behind Will give the stars their shine As our pain is washed away Down the river we flow Till there's nowhere to go Then we fall to earth newborn And live again On our journey through the silent stars I'll show you the wonders of the endless universe We know that in the end The sun will rise again And tomorrow will come Take my hand and then we'll fly away I'll show you there's nothing left to be afraid of now Up to the stars ascend The story finally ends And tomorrow we'll all meet again
