You hear her calling singing out your name Breath of an angel driving you insane Pulling at your heart singin’ death's sweet song Temptresses sounds leading you along Crushing your sprit Spinning you a Yarn You always come back Just to hear her voice Echoes on the Wind to bring You back home Her sweet voice is Death Hear the Siren's Song Wasting all your time Living on the line I never thought It'd come to this Fear the Siren's Kiss Wasting all your time Living on the line I can't believe It's come to this Fear the Siren's Kiss Through winds and summer's rain Spake the song without a name A shadow in the black Bring the stormclouds back again Now echoes on the wind They bring you back home Sweet are voices of the Dead Hear the siren's song Wasting all your time Living on the line I never thought It'd come to this Fear the Siren's Kiss Wasting all your time Living on the line I can't believe It's come to this Fear the Siren's Kiss Wasting all your time Living on the line waste away; you waste away you fear tonight you fear the siren's kiss

The silent planet bathes its shores In moonbeams from the night As shadow children dream their dreams To hear their mothers cry The echo of the solar breeze Falls soft upon the sands Walking to the jester’s tune On this rose across the stars… The tyrant in his emerald spire Casts shadows in the night His fear is brought to waking souls Who sleep beneath the light The watchmen of the city wall Call out the sorcerer’s name The brave men of the citadel Fall back against the flame The council members disappear To rooms beneath the mire The courtyard of the cowardly Hears whispers of the fire The summoned party pays the price Death takes them by the hand He leads them on a merry dance Across this cursed land…

She dwelt among the untrodden ways Beside the springs of Dove, A Maid whom there were none to praise And very few to love A violet by a mossy stone Half hidden from the eye! Fair as a star, when only one Is shining in the sky. She lived unknown, and few could know When Lucy ceased to be; But she is in her grave, and, oh, The difference to me!

In the darkest hour will you see the light? In the highest tower will you fear the night? The clouds gather round me, A veil that steals the dawn Breathing shades devour, As when I was born Feel electrocution dance accross the sky, A stay of execution looks you in the eye Now you're coming with me to a time before, Where the dark things gather, As when I was born My eyes before me, see the gathering of the clouds. Where distant thunder sounds keep me awake. Will you come meet me by the gathering of the clouds? Where the shadow of the sky takes me away... Feel the morning tremble, Feel the coming storm, Now my sight defies me, As when I was born. Oh Take me away... Oh please take me away. My eyes before me, see the gathering of the clouds. Where distant thunder sounds keep me awake. Will you come meet me by the gathering of the clouds? Where the shadow of the sky takes me away...

Tell no lies, don’t tell the truth Realise you’re going through All these lightyears away Time has lost its grip on you Now what are you gonna do As you fall through the maze Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all as the night surrounds you? Life is just a cosmic dream, Turn around you know you’ve been Chasing ghosts in the shade One last breath before you sleep In the sky you fall beneath Now you’re slipping away Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all as the night surrounds you? Never-ending space, never-ending time Never-ending space, all you see is your mind Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all? Do you fear it all as the night surrounds you?

Beyond the lights of border kings There hangs a gate of mystery You’ve seen it hanging there before Locked tight each night with ivy crawl Listen Child please step inside The forest gate is open wide Behind the leaves the trees unfurl A secret key a hidden door... An old figure standing in your way Dressed in smoke, he begs for you to stay You run, the gate slams, and crumbles into dust Welcome home… to the gardens of the lost Don’t leave the path the whispers scream Don’t leave the path the forest breathes You thought that you wanted to see inside But now there's doubts running through your mind Figures passing through the trees In jesters rags the poet dreams The lights that are leading you from the road Are fires that are taking you far from home Never-ending Fantasy You’re running in the night Living in a fairy-tale You’re running in the night… again Wished it once, you wished it twice You play the game you pay the price Each step that you take is not your own Now eyes from the path begin to glow Alas poor world I knew it well, Is all bygone to this new hell A wayward nature plays its cruel game You feel so lost you feel ashamed never-ending fantasy You’re running in the night Living in a fairy-tale You’re running in the night Living in a fairy tale of pain Running in the night Fairy-tale of pain Running in the night

about

Congratulations! You have discovered the roots of Gandalf's Fist's music: a retrospective album sampler!

If you want a good idea on what Gandalf's Fist is all about then look no further!

To celebrate our Ten Year anniversary we've put together this compilation to allow everyone to sample our back catalogue for Free! (But Hey - you can leave us a little tip if you like!)

Chronologically. there's one track from every album, including our very first demo from back in 2005!

As an extra treat the first three songs have been remixed, remastered, and in some sections, even re-recorded.... which we've done to thank all our existing fans and supporters out there with some nice fresh versions of our favourite tracks!

Rather than do a traditional "best of", we've picked one song from each record which means something special to us - check out the individual track notes for each song for more details!

Enjoy!
