Ayreon - The Castle Hall Lyrics




At last! you enter the Electric Castle! Here in this vast hall where even shadows fear the
light - here you must confront your past. If you have killed, beware of the Gathering of Spirits
for they do fish for men. Here, the disembodied Astral World becomes flesh once more. I pity the
men of swords.
For here blood runs cold...

[barbarian]
cries from the grave resound in my ears
they hail from beyond my darkest fears
faces of the past are etched in my brain
the women I raped, the men I've slain

shades of the dead are sliding on the wall
demons dance in the castle hall

[knight]
I call upon the sword, the mighty Excalibur
grant me the skill to fulfill my quest

I call upon my king and the knights of the table round
grant me the courage to stand to this test

I call upon the seer, Merlin the sorcerer
grant me the magic to end my pain

I call upon the spirit that lives in a noble heart
grant me the passion that's within my veins

shades of the dead are sliding on the wall
demons dance in the castle hall

[repeat hall]

    Portuguese lyrics

    O Salão do Castelo

    [Voz Misteriosa]
    Afinal! Vocês entraram no Castelo Elétrico!
    Aqui neste corredor vasto onde até mesmo as sombras temem a Luz,
    aqui você tem que confrontar seu passado. Se você matou, se prepare para a Reunião dos Espíritos
    Porque eles pescam homens.
    Aqui, o desencarnado mundo astral se torna carne mais uma vez. Eu tenho pena dos
    Homens de espadas
    Por aqui sangue corre frio

    [Bárbaro]
    Gritos da sepultura ressoam em meus ouvidos
    Eles saúdam do além meus medos mais obscuros
    Faces do passado estão cauterizando meu cérebro
    As mulheres que eu estup***, os homens que eu matei

    Sombras dos mortos estão deslizando na parede
    Demônios dançam no Salão do castelo

    [Cavaleiro]
    Eu invoco a espada, a poderosa Excalibur
    Me conceda a habilidade de cumprir minha busca

    Eu invoco meu rei e os cavaleiros da távola redonda
    Me concedam a coragem de suportar este teste

    Eu invoco o vidente, Merlin o feiticeiro
    Me conceda a magia de acabar com minha dor

    Eu invoco o espírito que vive em um coração nobre
    Me conceda a paixão que está dentro de minhas veias

    Sombras dos mortos estão deslizando na parede
    Demônios dançam no Salão do Castelo

    [Bárbaro]
    Gritos da sepultura ressoam em meus ouvidos
    Eles saúdam do além meus medos mais obscuros

    [Cavaleiro]
    Eu invoco o vidente, Merlin o feiticeiro
    Me conceda a magia de acabar com minha dor

    Eu invoco o espírito que vive em um coração nobre
    Me conceda a paixão que está dentro de minhas veias

    [Bárbaro e Cavaleiro]
    Sombras dos mortos estão deslizando na parede
    Demônios dançam no Salão do Castelo

  12. tatonkaa

    There are little differences between this version and the one I've listened to over the years. It sounds like one less women is singing the harmony part for starters.

    Klayett

    Yes, this is some remastered version? (or not a demo.)

  13. AiliceAryam

    THIS IS SUCH A GREAT SONG

  14. arlekinos93

    best song intro ever, from their best album

    the track order is as shuffled as FOX's first release of Firefly

    Alec Hughes

    I think that was just a problem with youtube playlists for a while. for a while playlist tracks were all messed up and every time I would start a playlist it would start on the second track. seems to be cleared up now

    APP (Ayreon Polonisation Project): ,,Do Elektrycznego Zamku'' część 2.
    10. ,,Sala Zamkowa''

    **
    *Nareszcie! Wkraczacie do Elektrycznego Zamku! Tu, w tej ogromnej sali, gdzie nawet cienie obawiają się światła - musicie stawić czoła swojej przeszłości. Jeśli zabijaliście, strzeżcie się Zgromadzenia Duchów, gdyż polują one na was. Tu, niematerialny Świat Astralny ponownie obleka się w ciało. Żal mi ludzi miecza.*
    *Gdyż to miejsce mrozi krew w żyłach.*


    Krzyki zza grobu dźwięczą w mych uszach
    Wołają zza mych najgłębszych strachów
    Twarze z przeszłości, wyryte w mym umyśle
    Kobiety które zgwałciłem, mężczyźni których zabiłem.

    Cienie umarłych przesuwają się po ścianie
    Demony tańczą w zamkowej sali


    Wzywam miecza, potężnego Ekskalibura
    Daj mi siłę, by wypełnić mą misję

    Wzywam mego króla i rycerzy stołu okrągłego
    Dajcie mi odwagę, by stawić czoła temu testowi

    Wzywam jasnowidza, czarodzieja Merlina
    Daj mi magię, by zakończyć mój ból

    Wzywam duchy co żyją w szlachetnym sercu
    Dajcie mi pasję, która kryje się w mych żyłach

    Cienie umarłych przesuwają się po ścianie
    Demony tańczą w zamkowej sali

    {Powtórz wszystko}
