1. AVALON

Walking through the mists again
Avalon, seem caught forever
I don't know where i belong
Holding on and waiting
Eternity, a lonely grave
From the haze of time i'm calling
Is our journey to begin
Or am i only dreaming

In a land, far away from here
Like a star that's blinding
Heaven's magic silently appeared
And i'm leaving for the dawn

Is it true that i must sleep
Forevermore, just watching changes
Heaven knows the story is not over
And the knights will gather

Out in the cold so long forgotten
Leaving the past behind
So timeless we're here, and we shall reappear
To find god

(from the land of make-believe)
(comes the faith of the unbeliever)
(and the eyes of god have turned away)
From avalon
(and belief is the holy grail)
(of the fool and the mass deceiver)
(turning good into evil deeds)
So rise, from avalon

Now has come, the point of no return
And i'm feeling fire
Fill my veins, the torches starts to burn
And the quest is starting

It's up to you to be forgotten
Saddle the horses now
The mindless shall fear, when we all reappear
To rise up

(from the land of make-believe)
(comes the faith of the unbeliever)
(and the eyes of god have turned away)
Arise, from avalon
(and belief is the holy grail)
(of the fool and the mass deceiver)
(turning good into evil deeds)
So rise, from avalon

13 knights to reappear
Merlin can you, can you hear
Can you see the past and the tomorrow

Tell me can we now succeed
Find the grail and turn the key
Find a better future for us all

Ride on out and make the world
Brighter than a shiny pearl, for all

Heaven knows i wait for thee
Give my love eternally
I'm calling, calling for you

On an island in the sun
Only wait for things to come
Never think about tomorrow

Building castles in the sand
Wait for you to take my hand
Without fear and without sorrow

(from the land of make-believe)
(comes the faith of the unbeliever)
(and the eyes of god have turned away)
From avalon
(and belief is the holy grail)
(of the fool and the mass deceiver)
(turning good into evil deeds)
So rise, avalon

In the morning sun
Our journey has begun
Don't close your eyes and turn away

Put and end to all the grief
To the pain from the make-believe
Don't close your eyes and turn away

In the land of the unbeliever
Tear the mask of the mass deceiver
Don't close your eyes and turn away

In the rays of the morning sun
Our journey has begun
Don't close your eyes and turn away




2. HELLBENT

A merciless tempest, a flash underground
Sky ripped to pieces, the flames all around
Revolts on the sidewalks, screams in the dark
The world sinks in chaos, the world falls apart

I'm moving on with business
(like any other day...any other day...any other day)
And nothing ever stops me
I've found my sanctuary

A place to face the lonely race
With madness all around
We've found a way to get out of the game
Sharing the thing that we've found

Hell-bent for metal
That's what we are
Hell-bent for metal
Straight from the heart

Infernal destruction
I see the downfall
The eve of extinction
I don't care at all
The air that i breathe
Purified by the sound
The powers within' make my world go around

I really can't be bothered
(like any other day...any other day...any other day)
'Cause i have got my music
I've found my sanctuary

A place to face the lonely race
With madness all around
We are the same we're not playing the game
Together we're screaming out loud

Hell-bent for metal
That's what we are
Hell-bent for metal
Straight from the heart

Hell-bent - for metal
Hell-bent - we are
Hell-bent - for metal
Hell-bent - we are
Hell-bent (await) for metal
Hell-bent (await) we are
Hell-bent (await, await, await) for metal
Hell-bent (await, await, await)
With all...my love
Down to the core
A metal heart
I'm living for

A place to face the lonely race
With madness all around
We are the same we're not playing the game
Together we're screaming out loud

Hell-bent for metal
That's what we are
Hell-bent for metal
Straight from the heart
Hell-bent for metal
That's what we are
Hell-bent for metal
Straight from the heart




3. PALE RIDER

I ride on down, down the heavy road
I´m sick and tired and my head explodes
I listen to the wind and my whip shall crack
I´m riding down the road like a razorback
I´m on this lonely trail forever

Burn motherfucker time to feel the flame
Listen to the whiplash crack your brain
I am the rider in the darkness
Coming for you
Pale rider (pale rider)

I spend my life with collecting souls
I get my dime in the sick man hall

I circle 'round the world like a satellite
Killing prone demons bound to fight
I´ll ride forever

Burn motherfucker time to feel the flame
Listen to the whiplash crack your brain
I am the rider in the darkness
Cursed for eternity, fulfill my destiny
To be a rider in the darkness
Pale rider

Lost in a deal with a demon to feel
That a deal with a demon is never for real
There´s always a catch there´s always a snatch
And your soul you will sell to the devil himself

Burn motherfucker feel the flame
Listen to the whiplash crack your brain
Here comes the rider in the darkness
Cursed for eternity fulfill my destiny
Here comes the rider in the darkness
I´m comin´ for you - pale rider
I´m comin´ for you - pale rider
I´m comin´ for you, comin´ for you
I´m comin´ for you, i´m comin´ for you




4. BORN TO FLY

I'm your master i'm your fate
Choice is yours so don't be late
I'm gonna take you for a ride

Wheels are turning much too fast
Will we die to live at last
I'm gonna salve your soul tonight

Never give up
Never give in
Never get down
Nevertheless
You're gonna be free
When you're coming up with me

Flying high like an eagle
Touching rainbows in the sky
Flying high like an eagle in the sky
Born to fly

I'm a darkness i'm a light
I'm a force that burns inside
I'm gonna set you free tonight

Never give up
Never give in
Never get down
Nevertheless
You're gonna be free
When you're coming up with me

Flying high like an eagle
Touching rainbows in the sky
Flying high like an eagle in the sky
Born to fly

Never give up
Never give in
Never get down
Nevertheless
You're gonna be free
When you're coming up with me

Flying high like an eagle
Touching rainbows in the sky
Flying high like an eagle in the sky
We're home free

Flying high like an eagle
Touching rainbows in the sky
Flying high like an eagle in the sky
Born to fly




5. MASTER OF CONFUSION

You try to call me, i'm not at home
My mobile's off can't leave a message
And now you're waiting, still i won't show
You won't believe what happened to me

And now i'm running like the wind
But i won't have much time i'm sorry once again

No matter where i'm going, or anywhere i roam
I am the master of confusion
Maybe you'll see me coming, or maybe i just don't
I am the master of - confusion

The label's calling, boys are you done ?
The deadline's past time to deliver
I am so sorry, we're running late
Some unexpected ghost in the machinery

Again i'm running like the wind
Now all the made up plans are running out of hand

No matter where i'm going, or anywhere i roam
I am the master of confusion
Maybe you'll see me coming, or maybe i just don't
I am the master of - confusion
(confusion)

I'm chaos, i'm disaster, i am pain
Sweet disorder, anarchy, go insane (go insane)

Ohoh whenever i am closing in
Your peaceful life goes in the bin
Let chaos begin

No matter where we're going, or anywhere we roam
We are the masters of confusion
We'll take your life apart, and we don't give a damn
We are the masters of

No matter where we're going, or anywhere we roam
We are the masters of confusion
We're like an open fire, a raging thunderstorm
We are the masters of - confusion

Masters of confusion
Masters of confusion
Masters of confusion
Masters of confusion
Masters of confusion
Masters of, masters of, masters of - confusion
Confusion, confusion, confusion, confusion
Confusing you




6. EMPIRE OF THE UNDEAD

Running through the cold night, fever in my mind
Shadows in the haze are calling from behind
Tonight i’m gonna meet them ‘cause tonight i wanna die
I wanna be an undead until the end of time
Living like the others ain’t my will
Got only one desire, i wanna get my fill

Running, screaming, i’m burning - for more...

Empire of the undead
Empire of the undead
Empire of the undead
Empire of the undead

Something right behind me is killing all the light
It feels so good it makes me warm, it fills me with delight
It leads me to the chapel where i will embrace the love
The ceremony is prepared the heavens cry above
Here i’m coming, out of my way
All eternal, here to stay

Demon, vampire, wizard - we are...

Empire of the undead
Empire of the undead
Empire of the undead
Empire of the undead

The undead are coming - i’m on their side
The undead are coming - in the night
No place in hell - for me and you
So better be - an undead too

The undead are coming - we’re on our way
The undead are coming - we’re here to stay
The realm of shadows - don’t need no right
Come to the undead - escape from the light

Huh, alright, alright

Running through the cold night, fever in my mind
Shadows in the haze are calling from behind
Tonight i’m gonna meet them ‘cause tonight i wanna die
I wanna be an undead until the end of time

Living like the others, ain’t my fucking will
Got only one desire, i wanna get my fill

Screaming, burning, undying - we are...

Empire of the undead
Empire of the undead
Empire of the undead

You wanna get your fill (you better talk to hell)

Empire of the undead
Empire of the undead
Empire of the undead
Empire of the undead
Undead
Undead
Undead
Undead




7. TIME FOR DELIVERANCE

Angels surrounding my soul
Spread wings out of control
One life, only one soul

Angels might come every day
Angels might come out to play
And if you can feel, you will hear them say...yeah...

That it´s time for deliverance
To save what we are
Time for a future
With love deep in our hearts
When there´s no way out
From the cold and the dark
It´s time for deliverance
For us all

Lost in a hell of illusions and darkness we lay
Forgotten in stories and tales of an ancient array
But still there is hope, and someone to pray...yeah...

And it´s time for deliverance
To save what we are
Time for a future
With love deep in our hearts
When there´s no way out
From the cold and the dark
It´s time for deliverance
For us all

We cannot foresee what will be in the future years
And no one might come to be saving our souls
Still there´s a reason to stand up and fight, fight, fight
For a tomorrow, in the rays...of the light...

It´s time for deliverance
To save our future
It´s time to unbreak the chains and love deep from our hearts
Yes we still got a dream to follow
In the cold and the dark
Yes it´s time for deliverance
For us all
It´s time for deliverance
For us all
It´s time for deliverance
For us all




8. DEMONSEED

I'm the monster deep inside your head
I am a stranger in the dark
I am the beast that lives under your bed
I've come to tear your soul apart

I shout at the world
I've come to take you down to the dust

Fight you'll never win
The demon lives within'
Your very soul and deep inside your heart
Your pain is what i need
The suffering will feed
Demonseed

I am the ruler of your darkest dreams
I'll take you down into the fire
And i'll be here or all eternity
I am the spirit rising higher

I thrive on every sinner
I've come to you down into the dust

Fight you'll never win
The demon lives within'
Your very soul and deep inside your heart
Your pain is what i need
The suffering will feed
Demonseed

When the demonsoul is crawling out
And the sinner calls my name
See my mind just like an open book
With the words all rearranged

Smoldering inside of me
Growing flame from deep within'
Blackened smoke that's wafting high
Bringing darkness eating light

Oh...where do we go
Ohoh...where do we go
Ah...where do we go...where do we go from here

I thrive on all the sinning
And i was here from the beginning
And i make you bleed and crawl
I'm the end and your downfall

Fight you'll never win
The demon lives within'
Your very soul and deep inside your heart
Your pain is what i need
The suffering will feed
Demonseed
Demonseed !




9. SEVEN

They stare at you with an evil eye
Under the cover of a winning smile
Ruthless and rotten to the core

Immaculate on the outer shell
They make you jump in the wishing well
They leave you screaming back for more

Down in their temple they're feeding the fire
Watch it grows into a storm

Devil eyes and seven snakes
Seven deadly sins await
Come on down and see the writing on the wall
Seven sinners in the hall
Seven demons heed the call
Come on down and see the writing on the wall

You'll never know what is going on
You only wait for the day to come
Fortune knocking at your door

And all that matters is to pay the bill
While other men think of how to fill
Their money bin a little more

Eyes of the snake will be watching the fire
Growing right into a storm

Devil eyes and seven snakes
Seven deadly sins await
Come on down and see the writing on the wall
Seven sinners in the hall
Seven demons heed the call
Come on down and see the writing on the wall

Can you believe it's true
God is our only salvation
Now they are calling you
Taking you into the eye of the storm...yeah !

And now you stand in awe and wonder
Why this is happening to you
You're not alone they're always watching
And now truth is hitting you

Before you all will go to heaven
Oh there is something you must know
All that you've done won't be forgiven
From those who after you will show

Prepare the eyes for watching wonders
Of jesus and his holy crew
And then the snake will come to bite you
You never had a chance, you fool

Devil eyes and seven snakes
Seven deadly sins await
Come on down and see the writing on the wall
Seven riders in the sun
Seven deadly plagues to come
Come on down and see the writing on the wall...oh oh...

Oh oh oh...
Writing on the wall
Oh oh oh…
Writing on the wall oh...

Devil eyes
Seven snakes
And it goes on...seven !




10. I WILL RETURN

''I'll be back''

I know that you know
That they'll never care
About the spirit of our freedom
In a world that's meant to share
Yeah...

And you know that i know
It's time for rebirth
When it's cold and full of darkness
And the angels left the earth
Yeah...

Through the eyes of time you'll see
All the pain and tragedy
Never lose the will to be
Deep inside of you

I - i will return
From the light in the heavens
When man must learn
Now - it's time to turn
So bright and enlightning
The skies will burn
When i return

I stand alone here
I wait for a sign
To get a glimpse beyond illusion
Let the light of wisdom shine
Searching for answers
My heart's full of fear
Will i face another rainbow
When the dark skies disappear
Yeah...

I give you shelter from the rain
A taste of freedom from the pain
Never lose the will to live now

I - i will return
With thunder and lightning
When all man must learn
Crucified - i never died
In times of evil and madness
The skies will burn
When i return

Hope will wipe away the tears
Break the spell of ancient fears
Go and live for better days now

I - i will return
With thunder and lightening
Now all man must learn
Crucified - i've never died
In times of evil and madness
The skies will burn
When i return
The skies will burn

BONUSTRACKS

11. BUILT A WORLD

I - try
Don't know if i will make it
When - we
When we'll meet again
No - way
Time will tell the answer
So i walk - behind the lines
To find another way

Built a world of my own
It's a place i belong
It's a world of my own making
There's no reason to hide
There's no reason to fight
And my world is always real

Where i stand, i look around
I see the world with my eyes
How could i ever feel like you
Even if i tried

In the eyes of the world i'm a stranger
And they say that i'm one of the lost
I am trying to fulfill my own way my own will
But they would not let me go

Built a world of my own
It's a place i belong
It's a world of my own making
There's no reason to hide
There's no reason to fight
And my world is always real
Built a world of my own
It´s my world, it's always real

Built a world of my own
It's a place i belong
It's a world of my own making
There's no reason to hide
There's no reason to fight
And my world is always real

Built a world of my own
It's a world of my own making
Built a world of my own
And my world is always real
