Avantasia – Shelter From The Rain

Avantasia is a German supergroup metal opera project created by Tobias Sammet, vocalist of the band Edguy. It has been characterized as a rock opera, as it features the contributions of various vocalists and musicians and it consists of concept albums.

Like a wheel I keep on turning
Straight ahead, it’s got me burning
The melody — the dignity,
Something is speaking to me
Night is cold and my soul is battered
Not afraid for the first time now that I realize
We coincide, I’ll never belong to the tribe
And a song is calling me to this ship of fools

[Chorus:]
Been dying for a sign when faith has been on the line
When you find your love on wasted grounds
You’re taking to the sound, it’s shelter from the rain

No return from the way I’ve chosen,
Cast away – chasing rainbows – condemn the lie
And how could I make god believe I’m blind?
We create by intuition,
call it fate — the tounge of angels in our soul
Feel it resound and carry you over the grind
All that’s left is a song giving shelter from the rain

[Chorus]

It’s a dark and stormy night,
Ain’t it funny what it takes to read the signs?
But I’m always there, I am the footprints to your right
Man overlooks when riding high, young and blind
In your darkest lonely night, heed a voice to take you higher
Take you higher
As you stumble through the ruins, let the spirit take you higher, and a soul

Oh, and a song
I can hear a song

[Chorus x2]

Avantasia Song Lyrics

Avantasia – Book Of Shallows

Avantasia is a German supergroup metal opera project created by Tobias Sammet, vocalist of the band Edguy. It has been characterized as a rock opera, as it features the contributions of various vocalists and musicians and it consists of concept albums.

What if I would script a dream?
And if I’d let you in?
I’d be your door out of a stark truth…

Leave a stark reality
An arrant giveness
I’d make you fall to be there for you

Let Morpheus commit his spark
To a stray soul wandering
Errant in the dark

Chase your dream!
If you don’t mind don’t be astounded
By the things they make you do
For amusement’s sake
Chase your dream!
When all comes breaking down around it
What a day for a pastel dream
That’s coming to life…

Beautiful in colour
United in their creed
Reasonable people dreaming ordinary dreams

Rise above confusion
And leverage the weak
Dive into the shuffle
And then tap into the freak show

And Morpheus commits his spark
To a plain soul wandering, errant in the dark

Chase your dream!
If you don’t mind don’t be astounded
By the things they make you do
For amusement’s sake
Chase your dream!
When all comes breaking down around it
What a day for a pastel dream
That’s coming to life…

May it charm the living
May it ease misgiving
Intoxicating, dazing
Rapture of the shallow
Dazed and captured

Say you wanna be now
Sneak into their dream now
Suck up to their love
You’re the master of their freakshow
Give into temptation
Seek and bring salvation
Mine now, Suburbia!
Tomorrow it’s the nation

Wait for a savior
Rising from the tranquil sea
The book of shallows
Bringing forth a common dream

Going with the grain
Numb the pain
We are common sense
Knock them down a peg
Make them beg for deliverance
Rapture of the deep, they believe
Take a deep bow
Give them what they need now
Mingle with the creep show

Going with the grain
Numb the pain
We are common sense
Knock them down a peg
Make them beg for deliverance
Rapture of the deep, they believe
Take a deep bow
Give them what they need now
Mingle with the creep show

Wait for a savior
Rising from the tranquil sea
The book of shallows
Bringing forth a common dream

Let Morpheus commit his spark
To a stray soul wandering in the dark

Chase your dream!
If you don’t mind don’t be astounded
By the things they make you do
For amusement’s sake

Chase your dream
When all comes breaking down around it
What a day for a pastel dream
That’s goin’ to plan

Chase your dream!
If you don’t mind don’t be astounded
By the things they make you do
For amusement’s sake

Chase your dream
When all comes breaking down around it
What a day for a pastel dream
That’s goin’ to plan
What a day for a pastel dream
That’s goin’ to plan
