  • The Riddler

    Nightwish

    Genre:

    Symphonic Heavy
    1998

    Riddler Riddler ask me why
    The birds fly free on a mackerel sky
    Ask me whither goes the wind
    Whence the endless tick-tick stream begins

    Make me guess if the earth is flat or round
    Set a guessing if fantasies are unbound
    If tales aren’t just for children to see
    That it’s peace if sleep walks with me

    As you wish
    For kingdom come
    The one to know all the answers
    You think you dwell in wisdoms sea
    Still sweet ignorance is the key
    To a poet’s paradise
    Challenge the Riddler and you will see…

    Riddler Riddler ask me why
    All mothers beneath the Earth and sky
    Hold their children’s hands for a while
    Their hearts forever – yours and mine

    Make me wonder what’s the meaning of life
    What’s the use to be born and then die
    Make me guess who’s the one
    Behind the mask of Father and Son

    As you wish…

    For nature hates virginity
    I wish to be touched
    Not by the hands of where’s and why’s
    But by the Oceans’ minds

    As you wish…
