The Soulforged Lyrics

Artist: Blind Guardian
Album: A Night At The Opera

I'm not insane
That's how it seems though
Spiteful cruel but wise
Beyond his age
My body fails
My soul will rise

The end of life's immortalized disease and agony
And I see death through golden eyes
Beyond the door
There's something more
It seems there's just one way

On through the heat
I've felt the touch of evil
I still feel the icy claw in me

For a decent price
I've banned kindness from my heart
The spirit of all truth and beauty
Pawned for my desire

And from the flames
As chance would have it
the soulforged will come into light
And from the flames as chance would have it
The soulforged,
The stainless will rise

I will never change my mind
I will leave it all behind

And through the hour glass
Everything's grey
Everyone's pale
No colour nor beauty will enlighten my heart
The seat of life's empty and cold
Cadaverous you all seem to me
Stillborn but you're still alive
You're still alive

Truth lies in loneliness
When hope is long gone by
I'll wipe out the bliss of the new age
And welcome you precious night

And from the flames
As chance would have it
the soulforged will come into light
And from the flames as chance would have it
The soulforged,
The stainless will rise

From a distant time
Voices echo in the hall
"Come and join us
Enter life and everything is gone now"

And through the looking glass
I still fear mortality and its loss in the end
Unlimited power in my hands
The claw of the dragon ascends
"Mourn for his lost soul
He's cursed and condemned"

Each step I take
May it hurt may it ache
Leads me further
Away from the past
But as long as I breathe
Each smile in my bleak face
I'm on my way to find
Back to the peace of mind

And from the flames
As chance would have it
the soulforged will come into light
And from the flames as chance would have it
The soulforged,
The stainless will rise

I will never change my mind
I will leave it all behind

This song rules. It gives me chills. Raistlin is the greatest story character ever.
by Hanniball on 7/12/2008 10:24am
Yeah he is. I listen this song about once in week.
by TheJimmyNZ on 8/7/2008 11:44pm
Hell yeah! Go see the latest Dragonlance animated movie where the best acter in the world, Kiefer Sutherland, voices him!
by Xuneera on 8/9/2008 11:19pm
I agree; Raistlin is the best character in the entire DL series.
by Del on 8/21/2008 11:32pm
This is without a doubt my favorite song. Raistlin rocks.

The movie, however, made me literally stop liking the series for about a month (then I reread the books and realized how hilariously misrepresented the pathetic film was).

At first, I didn't realize this was about Raistlin, but when I read something on Wikipedia about it being about his life story or whatever, it all clicked.

Raistlin = <3
by Reistlin on 9/18/2008 6:00pm
yeah, this song, mirror mirror, and the fuckin bard's song are the best songs i've ever hear!
by Riardor on 10/4/2008 6:40pm
raistlin is so awesome

This song is a perfect exemplar of Raistlin's story and amazingly barely tells his tale. It intrigues the mind, and catches the heart with its epic tale of sacrifice. It is indeed worthy of our Shalafi. I even spoke to Margeret Weis about it and when I told her of the song she searched it out and gave it excellent reviews. The woman who gives Raistlin his very life complimenting this song! She also admitted to the faults in the movie and was fond of Keifer Sutherland's voice acting. I myself despise it, from the minor flaws in spell pronunciation (the a in ast tasurak sinuralan krinawi, the sleep spell, is pronounced as in ask versus the ah sound discribed in the book soulforge) to the fact that as a whole he sounded far too healthy and less cynical and bitter. Tanis, Flint, Fizban, Riverwind and Goldmoon were far better done. I also hated how much of an annoying dick they made Tasslehoff...

Raistlin The Soulforged & DragonLance Rules!
by HayleGor on 1/13/2009 7:41am
I love how the dragonlance series has inspired two amazing rock artists to compile songs about the most famous character from dragonlance - raistlin! Any die hard fan of this song/band/character should check out "raistlin and the rose" by lake of tears

thanks for listening

Raistlin. Is. The. Shit. The Soulforged <3. My manager tried to read DragonLance, but someone gave him The Soulforged to read. He didn't like it 'cause it's too far into the story, I told him he'd have to read the whole series to understand the song at all.

Ahh, my main man. Raistlin. I listen to this song daily, because it's awesome rock-homage to the greatest fictional character to ever grace the bookshelves.

raist will rise

Another great dragonlance-themed song is Caramon's poem by Pyramaze
by fatti i cazzi tuoi on 7/16/2009 1:41am

There is also the work of Dargaard (Named after the keep) And on the Rise and Fall album, they have two songs. One called Rise and Fall about Lord Soth, the other is Takhisis Dance

I love Dragonlance, and Raistlin is my inspiration. Any great character I could ever write would never equal up to him. He is the inspiration and helps me keep moving even when I don't want to anymore. Great song.
