1. VICIOUS RETURN

(instrumental)




2. THE ENEMY

A cry of pain and shout
The call of war is out
Roaring guns throughout the night
Gothic lines stare in fright
Bodies burn and ash from flame
Treaties here won't save the pain

The enemy...the enemy's around
The enemy...taking more ground
The enemy...the enemy is here
The enemy...the enemy is fear

A deserter of the field
Is shot as he yields
Courage for the damned
Whose bodies return to sand

The enemy...the enemy's around
The enemy...taking more ground
The enemy...the enemy is here
The enemy...the enemy is fear

Be strong thru the battle
And not a spoil of war
Those who retreat
Suffer evermore
A wound is a blessing
Though you feel pain
Cowards die slow
Heroes don't go...

You're winning the battle
But losin' the war
Look at your allies
Fearing the sword
Alone in the dark
A soldiers last mark
A violent life
A cut-throat's knife...

Heading north the race is on
Reach the alps before they come
Be brave and hold your guns
Get ready the charge is on...

The end is near the earth is gone!!!




3. UNDER MY SKIN

You done it this time like never before
Over my limit can't take it no more
My blood is boiling can't sleep at night
Awake in a cold sweat redy to fight
I'm like a time bomb ready to blow
Chains can't hold me come on lets go
You're the reason i love to hate
And what you choose will decide your fate

I'll bring you down with me
Cause i hold the key
Jailed in your sin 'cause
You're under!! Under my skin

Ready for battle swinging the chain
I'm seeking a vengeance for life and pain
I'm breathing fire can't hold it back
So lock your doors and prepare to attack
I'm the fighter the man and the boy
And it's my instinct to seek and destroy
When you hear my battle cry
Don't you expect to live prepare to die

[Chorus ]

Exploding in your ears i release your inner fears
And i'm crawling up inside underneath your very hide

I got you cornered your back is to the wall
My gun pointed straight at your head
Pulling the trigger so nice and easy
I can't wait to fill you with lead

[Chorus ]




4. VICIOUS ATTACK

He walks in the streets
He talks in your sleep
He stares in your eyes
He laughs as you cry

Silence is his way
Slicing thru the day
A blinding flash of light
Watch him kill on sight
Hiding in the shadows
The anger's burning bright
A twelve inch metal blade
It's time to taste the pain

Maniac...on your track
Maniac...the loser's back

He's walking in the streets
He's talking in your sleep
He's staring in your eyes
He's laughing as you cry

Off the beaten track
There's no turning back
A homicidal man
Roaming thru the land

A savage on the prowl
It's all happening now
Putting people to rest
His never ending quest

Maniac...on your track
Maniac...the loser's back
Maniac...on your track
Maniac...the loser's back

Cutting them all down
Salvation's underground
A mercenary's will
Using speed and skill
Eating human flesh
Dressed in steel mesh
Society's to blame
Now he's gone insane




5. EVERYBODY DIES

6. STRONGER THAN EVIL

I see the swords - i hear the sound
My comrades falling to the ground
We're fighting till the very end
My mind is hell-bent on revenge

Stronger than evil - no longer a fool
Stronger than evil - too strong for you
Stronger than evil - soldier in command
Stronger than evil - more powerful than man

The power in my hand is free
Shining bright for all to see
You've rejected all i said
But it's too late you've expired
Now you're dead

Overloaded and loving it all
Is something i love to hate
Crushing the skulls of those who won't
Follow - i can hardly wait
Revenge is mine i'll pay you back
I'll make you earn your tears
I'm coming back to take what's mine
I'll see you in 7 years

Fire waits for those who fall
And follow not the master's call
The mark upon your forehead ticks
Beware - the mark is 666





7. OFF

(No lyrics available)




8. SCREAMS FROM THE GRAVE

They come in the night and they're searching for prey
The look in their eyes will burn you away
Piercin' the wastelands they sweep thru the plains
Cutting the darkness just like a blade

Nothing can stop them
They're headed your way
Driven by vengeance and swinging the chains
The grinding of metal, the clashing of steel
Bloodchilling screams streak thru the fields

Screams from the grave
Screams from the grave

The sound of an icepick tearing the flesh
Hearing the cries emerge from the depths
Casually buthered at modern cost
Innocent beings turn to the lost

Nothing can stop them
They're headed your way
Driven by vengeance and swinging the chains
The grinding of metal, the clashing of steel
Bloodchilling screams streak thru the fields

Approaching the headstones lining the graves
The remains were buried and given their names
The horror still haunts me
When i'm in the dark
Watching the figures of yesterday's mark

Nothing can stop them
They're headed your way
Driven by vengeance and swinging the chains
The grinding of metal, the clashing of steel
Bloodchilling screams streak thru the fields

Screams from the grave
Screams from the grave
Screams from the grave
Screams from the grave




9. ACE OF SPADES

If you like to gamble
I'll tell you i'm the man
You win some you lose some
It's all the same to me
The pleasures to play-
It makes no difference what you say
I don't share your greed-
The only card i need is
The ace of spades
The ace of spades

Playing for the high one
Dicing with the devil
Going with the flow
7 or 11

Snake eyes watching you
Double up or quit
The devil's strike is to split
The ace of spades
The ace of spades

You know i'm going to lose
Cuz gambling is for fools
But that's the way i like it, baby
I don't wanna live forever
And don't forget the joker

Pushing up the ante
I know you've got to see me
Read 'em and weep
The dead man's hand again
I see it in your eyes
Take one look and die
The only thing you'll see
You know it's gonna be
The ace of spades
The ace of spades
