All Over The Nations

Michael Weikath

I keep wondering all these days
How to thrive the way we stray
A year, a lifetime - parted together
Will be all the same
Many things do make me sad
Some can even drive me mad
Just fear forever, no more endeavours
Leave me where I stand
You are here
And make me feel so high
Day by day
Something one can't deny
Let's give each other certainty
All over the nations the tunes come alive
Winners and losers, we're all alike
No matter as truth ain't some great mystery
We all fade into one
Don't you feel too hypnotized
Or keep your future jeopardized
So what's accomplished
Cry for nothing
Skip depression now
Come, arise and take me higher
No more lies, and every soul can see
We're incarnate sincerity
All Over the nations the tunes come alive
Winners and losers,
We're all alike
No matter as truth ain't some great mystery
We all fade into one

Then just pick up the phone
Dial 18 double 0
Mr. Torture

Escalation 666

Roland Grapow

Black, you stripped me
Reveal to me the secrets of your pain - painful lies?
Life itself that feed your wisdom
Almost every day you put yourself high on a shelf
Whatever you do, wherever you go
Never turn my back on you
Shadows on the wall- Darkness is spreading
I warm my hands on the flames of lies
In vain I scream - against the wind
They don't understand my last testament
Escalation 666
Escalation 666

Deceit and malice
Every smile hides betrayal and greed, hypocrisy
We've been like brothers
Now I hold out my hands to a bloodless soul
Shadows on the wall
Darkness is spreading
I warm my hands on the flames of lies
In vain I scream - against the wind
They don't understand
My last testament
Escalation 666
Escalation 666

Mirror Mirror

Andi Deris

My age you keep uncertain
This spell cannot be broken
Vicious of eternal youth
We share one face together
Associates forever
Only you know my truth
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the master of them all?
Mirror, mirror split in two
Look at me - who are you?

I swim in my reflection
Mirror, answer my question
Tell me what I want to hear
I see a perfect creature
My evil I can teach you
I'll drown you with your vanity
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the master of them all?
Mirror, mirror split in two
Look at me - who are you?
No, my life ain't no beautiful
No, my life is beautiful

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the sickest one of all?
Mirror, mirror split in two
Look at me - who are you?
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the master of them all?
Mirror, mirror split in two
Look at me - who are you?

If I Could Fly

Andi Deris

No fear, no pain
Nobody left to blame
I'll try alone
Make destiny of my own
I learn to free my mind
Myself I now must find
Once more, once more
If I could fly
Like the king of the sky
Could not tumble nor fall
I would picture it all
If I could fly
See the world through my eyes
Would not stumble nor fail
To the heavens I sail
If I could fly

So here I am
In solitude I stand
I've got dreams inside
I need to realize
My faith has grown
No fear the unknown
No more, no more
If I could fly
Like the king of the sky
Could not tumble nor fall
I would picture it all
If I could fly
See the world through my eyes
Would not stumble nor fail
I could revenge my jail
If I could fly

If I could, If I could, Fly
If I could, If I could, Fly
If I could, If I could, Fly
Like the king of the sky
Could not tumble nor fall
I would picture it all
If I could fly
See the world through my eyes
Would not stumble nor fail
To the heavens I sail
If I could fly
Like the king of the sky
Could not tumble nor fall
I would picture it all
If I could fly
See the world through my eyes
Would not stumble nor fail
I could revenge my jail
If I could fly

Salvation

Michael Weikath

Sent to a world cold as steel
Don't know where else I have been
Where will I go ? - I can't tell
Who would save us if we feel?
Can you feel what I see
In blind faith, would you believe?
Don't share my point of view
But it may mean a lot to you
Tell me we will remember
How it use to be?
Will it be the same?
In a time in a future
Will there be a different way?
Can one ever say?
Anthem for a distant world
We'll be all alike
Be there till eternity
One will see
When salvation comes our way

All my life I was sure
Kept my thoughts real, clean and pure
Just as I will always know
We're down here to learn and grow
I am my own entity for free
Keep me alive 'till find the way
In another dimension
You may find paradise
We'll be safe and warm
I've been told there'll be everyone
I held so close and dear
There will be no fear
Anthem for a distant world
We'll be all alike
Be there till eternity
One will see
When salvation comes our way

The Departed (The Sun Is Going Down)

Uli Kusch

There I stand with sun in my eyes
Dust on my face
My mouth parched and dry
Memories are racing
Flashing scenes through my mind
I know what's ahead
Today would be a good day to die
Once I thought had a golden heart
Once I thought my dreams would never shatter
Now I stand here
Jaded and cold
Epitaph - being craved on would you die with me?
No, you can't deny
Would you catch the bullet that was meant for me?
Blaze across the sky
Sun is going down
And there's no tomorrow
Sun is going down
Going down on me
Sun is going down
No more time borrow
Dance with the devil
Sun is going down
For the lonely heart
Sun is going down
In a blink of an eye
Sun is going down
On the departed
Laugh at the devil
I would die for you- would you die with me?

Caught in a fight
I was drawn again
I never thought I'd be betrayed
By my best friend
He lost his life as he went for mine
If this is the end
I want to die with you
Sun is going down
And there's no tomorrow
Sun is going down
Going down on me
Sun is going down
No more time borrow
Dance with the devil
Sun is going down
For the lonely heart
Sun is going down
In a blink of an eye
Sun is going down
On the departed
Laugh at the devil

I Live For Your Pain

Andi Deris

Unchain your obscenity
Desirable enemy
Await my enlightening
Allow what your face can bring
Now you're caught inside my cage
You the object of my rage
Sin I wash you clean again
I'm your redeemer
'Cause I live for your pain
I live for your pain
I'm dying

My victim you're meant to be
No, you cannot hide nor flee
You know what I'm looking for
Pleasure, torture I will endure
Now you're caught inside my cage
You the object of my rage
Sin I wash you clean again
I'm your redeemer
'Cause I live for your pain
I live for your pain
I'm dying
I'll burn in your flame
I live for your pain
I'm dying
I'm dying

Now you're rust inside my cage
You the object of my rage
Blood I wash you clean again
I'm your redeemer
Be my believer
'Cause I live for your pain
I live for your pain
I'm dying
I'll burn in your flame
I live for your pain
I'm dying
I'm dying

We Damn The Night

Andi Deris

Blood on my pillow
Blood on my skin
Am I goin' mad
Or was this a dream?
There in the depth
The hollow souls wait
Voices surrounded me
Tempting my fate
Then out of nowhere
Figures in white
Guarding my soul in the fight
We are strong, we're alive
We have faith in his might
We believe in the everlasting light
We damn the night

Out in the blackness
Shivering cold
Doubt takes on shape
Fear the unknown
Eyes of the fallen
Piercing their glance
Whispers of doom
Left without chance
Then out of nowhere
Figures in white
Shield my soul in the fight
We are strong, we're alive
We have faith in his might
We believe in the everlasting light
Anytime, anywhere
We will always be there
We will fight for what's just and what's right
We damn the night
We damn the night
We damn the night

Immortal

Andi Deris

Two lives, one fate
I have to leave
So you will follow me
That's how it meant to be
I reigned as god
I'm monumental
Soon I will arise
With you by my side
And we will radiate the skies
He who will gaze our lights
Will kill his mind, his vision blind
Tonight we are stars
Stars that shine on bright
Tonight we are stars
Stars - Immortal light
Tonight we are stars

All treasures, all goods
We bury where we lay down to die
And pay for paradise
Await the highest throne of all
And who will gaze our lights
Will kill his mind, is going blind
Tonight we are stars
Stars that shine on bright
Tonight we are stars
Stars inside the nights of ache
Love and hate
Hope and shade
I take you away
I will take you away
I'm gonna take you away
I will take you away

Tonight we are stars
Stars that shine on bright
Tonight we are stars
Stars - Immortal light
Light of hate
Hope and shade
Part of the fate
Tonight we are stars

The Dark Ride

Roland Grapow

All abroad
Step right this way
The dark ride is leaving soon
Just sign your name on the dotted line
All I want is just your soul
Tighten your belt and let's go

Standing in line to get into the fairground
Heading to the wicked side
One way ticket, there is no returning
Leave your soul at the gates
Out of doubt - no hope
Satan feeds our madness
Insanity confirms where we stand
Spit the red vile breath and
Wrath is our gift that
Leads direct to Armageddon
Take a place - on the dark ride
Slowly creeping up, quickly coming down
Take a spin - on the dark ride
May too far from the other side

Step inside and take final journey
Your fantasies will come true
Inclination without liberation
Life's carousel is catching you
Even through the darkest phase
Be it thick or thin
I'm your pain when you can't feel
Driven to our final fate
Jump out of this game
Can we ever stop this ride to hell

Is there any wonder?
Why we came about
Was it for love?
Or to let sin abound
Isn't it a wonder, awake from blood thick dreams
Remove all the stones from our hearts, we must all believe
Ooh, will we find a way - to the other side, heading for a light
Ooh, who is holding the key, why we can't see - the dark ride
I force the engine of your deadly sins
Even through the darkest phase, be it thick or thin
I'm your pain when you can't feel
I know too well you'll follow me, follow me
Down

Is there any wonder?
Why we came about
Was it for love?
Or to let sin abound
Isn't it a wonder, awake from blood thick dreams
Remove all the stones from our hearts, we must all believe

Madness of The Crowds

Andi Deris

Sightless the one who relies on promise
Blind he who follows the path of vows
Deaf he who tolerates words of deception
But they, who fathom the truth, bellow
Shout, shout
The madness of the crows
Hail insane
The madness of the game

Guilty the one with his silent knowledge
Exploiting innocence for himself
Dangerous he whom our faith was given
Broad is the road leading straight to hell
Shout, shout
The madness of the crows
Hail insane
The madness of the game

Dangerous he whom our faith was given
Broad is the road leading straight to hell
Shout, shout
The madness of the crows
Hail insane
The madness of the game

Deliver Us From Temptation

Markus Grosskopf

A priest caught in the lust
Is romantic the red light
Pays to indulge in his sins
Body cry
Each day he awakes and prays for forgiveness
'Our father', he cries to his god
'Set me free'
Once we may ask for forgiveness
Someday we could see paradise
His words echo to his disciples
Yet again he'll give into his vice
Caught and bound by temptation
So ashamed of running free
Sweet embrace, captivation
Carnal truth against our beliefs
Deliver us

His suit hides the truth
His bussiness is pushing
Supplying the kings of the street
Rich man's pride
Higher than high
A kid passing by
Blows off his head and escapes
Outta sight
Who finds the road the redemption
The preacher, the kid or the man
Who will decide it, I wonder
Vicious circle entangled and trapped
Caught and bound by temptation
So ashamed of running free
Sweet embrace, captivation
Carnal truth against our beliefs

Once we may ask for forgiveness
Someday we could see paradise
His words echoe to his disciples
Yet again he'll give into his vice
Caught and bound by temptation
So ashamed of running free
Sweet embrace, captivation
Carnal truth against our beliefs
Deliver us
