Avantasia is a heavy metal/power metal supergroup project created by Tobias Sammet, vocalist and frontman of the band Edguy. The project's title is a portmanteau of the words "avalon" and "fantasia" ("fantasy") and describes "a world beyond human imagination" (a quotation from the booklet). The pro… more »

I'm just a loser in the game of love
I'm just an stray boy in the shade And how I wish to know what love is like
To find someone to contemplate 
There's a voice in a million answers
To the questions I don't ask
A demon - I've got to contain When I'm walking through the fen Getting deep into the black There are whispers that I can't restrain 
Don't give in

Rise to fame - time will come
Make your claim - time has come
For the crow to fly away

So you're an angel meant to walk down here
And you believe it's all divine And you don't play by all those temporal rules You watch the world begin to die
 Alright - when the lamb's been torn to pieces I've been crashing from the sky
The fallen to care for the prey
They put a spoke right in your wheel I'm the one to dare the weak
To push you all over the pain

you give in, oh

Rise to fame - time will come
Make your claim - time has come
For the crow to fly away

I close my eyes
And I see what's coming my way
He's got treasure in his eyes
That he's gonna turn to clay

Hm, I'm a stranger, I'm a changer And I'm danger... maybe...
 Fallen Angel - waiting for the prey
The devil has come to take a maimed away Penetration of the twisted mind
The evil is out for the weaked blind

I can feel it in your voice Ever so sweet, no
Do I really have a choice, no no no

Oh, you burn your feet on unholy ground
You roam the barren wickd plains abound
In evil lies and evil speak Abound in all you evil freaks 
When you say it's all divine And meant be
What about your flesh and blood And defiers like me?
 Their evil eyes are looking down on you
And those who don't are losing sight of you Facing the rage to chase away
The specter of disgrace and shame  withered roses dying on the ledge A withered dreamer standing on the edge
You dream of love but you wake up to pain
You're better off to join in my game

Then she'll be better off to cry contrite tears
One day she'll wonder why
She had to let you disappear oh dear

Rise to fame - Your time has come
Time will come - To take the sun
Make your claim - You're drawn to the sound Time has come - You're leaving ground

Rise to fame - the flight of the crow
Time will come - Cross the line
Time has come - For the crow to fly away
It's a flight to hell
Can you hear the bell
The devil has come
To take your soul away
A flight to hell - Alright 
I'm a stranger I'm a changer And I'm danger Fallen Angel Waiting for the prey
