Empathy
As the days grow colder now
And everything is lost
A vision forms of better men
Rising from the cross

Never held the key to life
Finally their loss
Rising from the emptiness
And all that ever was

The battle rages on 'til now
Many men were lost
Dried into an empty shell
Nailed onto the cross

As I lie awake by now
Having never loved
Heaven sent for all of us
So painful our loss

In the eyes of the world a believer
But I'm sure they'll be turning away

Chorus:
Takes me down to a place below
Can't you see I'm falling
Pain has come
And the world will surely hide
In empathy

And then the world's religious fools
Come knocking at your door
Mankind is not wiser now
I've heard it all before

Still the mindless will hail the deceivers
And I'm sure they'll be turning away

Takes me down to a place below
Can't you see I'm falling
Pain has come
And the world will surely hide

In empathy

Empathy
In empathy
And the world will hide
In empathy
In empathy
Yes the world will hide
In empathy
The world will hide
Empathy
Empathy!
 
 
All You Need to Know
I came from the sky on the coldest day
They tough me to speak and to walk and obey
Injected their will into my simple kind
Forever to be in control of my mind

Let me out, let me out and walk away
Let me live on the run
Let me out, let me out and make me stay
For my kingdom to come

Chorus:
I'm the one with no name
And I won't play your game
I'm no light in the dark and no savior
Let my powers unfold
And before I get cold
Let me die as a rebel
Or live as a free man at last

I seek no forgiveness for taking my turn
I don't beg your pardon
It's time that you learn
That I'm non-conform
And I hate the norm
And I wish your world away
I'm falling to pieces sometime

Chorus (x2)

Free at last
 
 
Time to Live
A lonely rider in the morning sun
Heading out into the west
And his journey only has begun
He still believes the very best

A golden rainbow hanging in the sky
Full of mercy for those about to die
Up in the heavens so close to the edge
An angel shall speak to the dead

Chorus:
Time to live
I hear the voices
Time to live
Of the spirits in the sky
Time to live
They leave no choices
Time to live now, live
Live or die

The fading light beams of the setting sun
Showing life is but a wheel
Oh lord, I never wanted to be the one
To be dying on the fields

And when it's over and all is set and done
No more crying no more loving on the run
Up in the heavens so close to the edge
An angel shall speak to the dead

Time to live
I hear the voices
Time to live
Of the spirits in the sky
Time to live
They leave no choices
Time to live now, live
Live or die

Don't you wonder, ride again
When you always hide in shadows
You will never lose the pain
When the sky shines in amber
And night starts to fall
There's a light that burns forever for us all

Time to live
Time to live
Time to live
I hear the voices
Time to live
Of the spirits in the sky
Time to live
They leave no choices
Time to live now, live
Live or die
 
 
To the Metal
Coming from the streets
Fists up in the air
Generating heat
They come from everywhere

Hail

Fists are made of iron
Bodies made of steel
Dancing on a razor
Metal is the deal
Hail

Chorus:
We came to feel the thunder
The lightning and the heat
We came to hail the metal gods
Banging to the beat
Singin'

Hail to the Metal, hail
Singin' Hail Heavy Metal, hail

The power in the music
Arising in us all
We re never gonna lose it
We re proud and standing tall
Hail
I said hail

If you just cannot feel it
You'll never understand
There s nothing s gonna beat it
Metal rules the land
Hail

We came to feel the thunder
The lightning and the heat
We came to hail the metal gods
Banging to the beat
Singin'

Hail to the Metal, hail
Singin' Hail Heavy Metal, hail
Hail

Hail Heavy Metal, hail
Hail Heavy Metal, hail
Hail Heavy Metal, hail

Hail to the Metal
Heavy Metal
Hail
Hail to the Metal
Heavy Metal
All Hail
Hail to the Metal
Heavy Metal
All Hail
Hail to the Metal
Heavy Metal
All Hail
Hail to the Metal
Heavy Metal
All Hail
 
 
Rise
Fast decline of human values
Fast decay of virtues and morality
We're falling to pieces

Trust and faith are smashed to splinters
Confidence abused and torn away
But we will remember

We know who's the one to blame
We hold out 'till the end of the game

Chorus:
And then we'll rise in victory
We'll return stronger than ever
We shall rise from agony
Stand our ground
Stronger than ever

Self-destructive human nature
We sell out the future of our kind
We're going from heaven to hell
We walk through storm and fire
Now we have to stand the test of time
But we won't surrender
We face the demons of our crime
A chance for us, a chance for all mankind

And then we'll rise in victory
We'll return stronger than ever
We shall rise from agony
Stand our ground
Stronger than ever

Hate creates destruction
Greed wants to posses
Virus, massinfection
Force wants to oppress
Who's the core of evil
Who directs our fall
Who creates the chaos
Who's responsible

And then we'll rise in victory
We'll return stronger than ever
We shall rise from agony
Stand our ground
Stronger than ever
 
 
Mother Angel
From the book of life
Comes a rider for the damned
And he wields the scythe
As he rides across the land

But when he comes
You'll never know
Then it's time for you to leave the world

Chorus:
Mother Angel tell me why
Is it cool up in the sky
Was it time for you to disappear and go
Is there something I should know
Was it time for you to go
Waiting for a sign from you
To let me know
Here on my own

From the ashes we do come
To the ashes we shall go
And the dust that we were made of
Shall embrace our very soul
All the times that we don't know
Make it harder to believe in god
And heaven above

So Mother Angel tell me why
Is it cool up in the sky
Was it time for you to disappear and go
Is there something I should know
Was it time for you to go
Waiting for a sign from you
To let me know
Here on my own

My hands reach out into thin air
And the truth is hard to bear
No one comes to bring you back again

So Mother Angel tell me why
Is it cool up in the sky
Was it time for you to disappear and go
Is there something I should know
Was it time for you to go
Waiting for a sign from you
To let me know
Here on my own
 
 
Shine Forever
Give me peace and absolution
Take me up into the light
Sacrifice and self-destruction
Bodies burning bright
To die for revelation
Decimate the enemy
Holy war into damnation
Blood is on the streets

But when the knife is cutting deep
And you're crying in your sleep
Then it's time to come alive

And rise up, shine forever
You will see the light again on your road

Watch your step they're right behind you
Better move without a sound
Damn the day they're gonna find you
Grind you to the ground

And the knife is cutting deep
And in agony you creep
And it's time to come alive

And rise up, shine forever
You will see the light on your road
Rise up it's now or never
You will see the light again on your road

Standing and watching the fire
Don't wanna stand in the row
Watching the flames getting higher
Look at yourself, regain your self-control

Take a look around you, you're not alone
So stand up and rise

Rise up, shine forever
You will see the light on your road
Rise up shine forever
And your star will rise again
It will rise
 
 
Deadlands
Coming from the dark side
When the moon enlights the still
They're chasing you around
And they aim in for the kill
Seven deadly snipers, seven lives to live
Seven million pairs of eyes
Are watching for the thrill

The eyes of the hangmen
Will dance in your head
The silence is broken
The beast going mad

Chorus:
Now you run from the deadlands
The eyes of a stranger will follow
Run like a madman
The eyes of the stranger will follow
Now run!

I will not die in vain
I will not live in pain
And seven deadly bullets
Have not found me
I won't bow to you all
You'll never see me crawl
And seven deadly snipers won't
Surround me nevermore

The eyes of the hangmen
To pieces are torn
The dawn of a new world
A king to be born

Now you run from the deadlands
The eyes of a stranger will follow
Run like a madman
The eyes of the stranger will follow
Now run!

I'm on the run
From the shadows
From the deadlands
Oh yea
 
 
Chasing Shadows
Catch the wind
I'm gonna fly away
No turning back
Forever starts today

I am searching for something
Something I've never found
I am bleeding
Still proceeding
Want you to be around

Chorus:
Queen of the light
Star shining bright
Blessed by the light of the moon
A chase with the wind to the gardens of sin
Take me away, I am coming

Chasing shadows

Turn the page
Don't waste your life away
The choice is yours
Don't waste another day

Are you looking for someone
Someone deep in your mind
Can you hear me?
Can you feel me?
Is it you I will find

Queen of the light
Star shining bright
Blessed by the light of the moon
A chase with the wind to the gardens of sin
Take me away, I am coming

Chasing shadows

Give me your light
To bring sun to the night
Make me whole again
Back in the sun
I am chasing the shadows away

Save me from the tears and rain
A taste of freedom from the pain
The choice to be the man I was before
And when the end of day is near
I'll never know if she appears
Will you open the door

Queen of the light
Star shining bright
Blessed by the light of the moon
A chase with the wind to the gardens of sin
Take me away, I am coming

Chasing shadows

Give me your light
To bring sun to the night
Make me whole again
Back in the sun
I am chasing the shadows away

Chasing shadows
 
 
No Need to Cry
I remember the times we had
Take a look at the past
I can see you clearly now, very well
But I don't know when you lost yourself
There was no way to find you
You were deep, so deep
Inside your world

Don't know where to go
Uh and I miss you so
I lost you and I'll never be the same
Now you're gone
And I learned to be strong
And there's

No need to cry and there's
No need to die
'Cause all we need is love, there is
No need to cry and there's
No need to die
'Cause the world keeps turning on

So much I've said but I guess I was right after all
You have never, never really been alone
And on your way
There's been trouble and pain
And everything that comes along with it
We had seen it all before

No need to cry and there's
No need to die
'Cause all we need is love, there is
No need to cry and there's
No need to die
'Cause the world keeps turning on

What have you done with all your life
What have you done with all of your love
Who cares about it when you're gone
I don't know and you'll never see

What's the sense of it
What's the sense of all
What's the sense of our life
There's one hundred million ways
To go and
We will never know
What's our truth or reality

What have you done with all your love
And what have you done with all of your life
There's nothing left to stay right now and
I don't know and you'll never know

No need to cry and there's
No need to die
'Cause all we can give is
Hope, truth (faith) and love
There's
No need to cry and there's
No need to die
Oh, the world keeps turning on

There is a light on the dark
A light in the dark for everyone
For everyone
 
 
One Life
I'm lookin' for someone now to help me
To try to get on with my life
A one way lane in a dead end alley
The seatbelt is pullin' me tight

Out here in the madness
That's where I push my wheels
The hunger inside tells me feed the monster
Oh I wish that I couldn't feel

Face down in the gutter
Tryin' to keep my head up high
I wish that I'd be free now
I wish that I could fly

One life to live one heart to give
Fight until the end my friend
'Cause now it's time to live time to live

Out here in the twilight
That's where the sun won't shine
I've come to realise by now
The world was never mine
The world was never mine

I'm rising from the gutter rising
And hold my head up high
It's time to break the silence
I scream out in the night

One life to live one heart to give
The final curtain's far from here
'cause now it's time to live

They send you away they're takin' your day
Out of your life and there's none you can say
Out of the blue nil you can do
They're comin' for you and they take you away

Now they want your curtain to fall
They look at you with evil eyes
They're tryin' to seize control
You're lookin' the storm in the eye
Sail away far away oh yeah

No longer in the gutter
I keep my head up high
I'll never live in silence
I keep my aim in sight

I got one life to live one heart to give
The final curtain's far from here
'Cause now it's time
One chance to be free
There's only one way to be me
Everything and all I want
And that's how it's gonna be
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
