​Last Ride on the Winds of Eternity

This song is by Hirilorn and appears on the album Legends of Evil and Eternal Death (1998).

Oh...
I am lying down on the altar...
In my crypt, I can suddenly feel the air freezing...
The ancestral ritual is complete...
My soul can begin a new journey beyond Death...
As I'm coming out of my body, my physical senses are slowly disappearing.
Imprisoned in flesh, this is what I was, but now I am released, now I'm not a human being...
The winds are coming to take me away!
Seven senses are transcending my soul.
I am flying towards what humans call Hell; vast plains devastated in front of me and warriors joining battle under a sky red as blood.
The ravens are showing the way as the funeral winds carry me.
And once the Styx is far away, time will cease: immortality.
Ethereal atmosphere torn up by screams, archangels are burning, raped by unholy knights.
Diabolical laughters of the Gods; I'll soon be a part of them, when I'll meet the Majesty...
I can hear a voice calling me.
Confused is my mind, I've never been so far.
Beyond the forests of dead trees, unknown dimensions are attracting the winds I ride.
I can feel the embrace of a palpable coldness.
As I reach the speed of light, the voice is getting louder.
Now I enter the land that was yet existing even million years before the creation of time itself...
No!
They're consuming my soul, no!
The unspeakable Ones...
Winds are losing control, no!
In the hideous storm...
Thousand shadows are blowing fire, ice and rain.
Astral entities are rising in blood, mist and pain.
A maelstrom of horrors, tortured forms defying the whole physical laws, an invincible disaster of the unpurest and evilest incarnated thoughts...
But braver than the bravest knight, my ride I still carry on without fear.
I've now came out of this horror, the mental demoniac rape has made me stronger.
The winds are still carrying me away!
A feeling of hope's invading me, I'm seeing what was written below me: the wise Hades was awaiting me, as I always read in the prophecies.
And then he's calling my name out loud...
And then I'm calling his name out loud!
He is standing on a small island in the middle of a blood ocean, and Charon the ferryman's waiting at his side.
"Take this amulet, it will show you the way in the Gods' Castle; this is a pentagram forged in the Eternal Fire!"
Staring at the Castle defiantly, carrying on my quest for immortality, I've now entered the Gates of Hell.
The shining pentagram can bring me out of the maze.
The winds will carry me to the end!
In the hugest of the Halls, seven Demons gazing at me with a mocking smile.
"I'm asking for eternal life."
"We'll give you what a human being deserves..."
"Can't you see all that was a game?", said Astaroth, laughing at me.
"You have vainly defied your fate; you're mortal, you'll forever be."
In no time, my vision has grown dim, and everything's disappeared around me...
It can't be...
The winds had stopped blowing...
A fearful darkness is invading my soul...
No, no, no!
What have I done?
How can I be so naive?
I've realised I'm just a dust, my soul is forever lost.
I faced the infernal powers, I was seeking for immortality, but I found eternal Death.
Nothing, nothing will help me now.
Satan, you've taught me that life has no value.
Ah, but eternally, into the Abyss I'll fall...
Into the infinite Darkness, there's no sign of life around me.
My energy's sucked by the supreme chaos, I'll forever live my mortality...
I'll fall, I'll fall...
Eternally, into the Abyss I'll fall...
I'll fall, I'll fall...
Eternally, into the Abyss I'll fall...
