Wild Knight
Returns from his exile, all power and pain
To undo the wrong that was done in his name
The pack are inclined to believe in his words
The promise of riches, fortune - just words

They gathered aroun him, scared to be last
Dark eyes fix them behind his mask
Majestic in his saddle, he conquers the land
Blind to the fury to withness the end - ooooh

He scatters around him the seeds of his dread
Blaming them all for the price of his head
The call to his legions is mighty and strong
The word is destruction, the conflict was won

Scavengers pick at the bones of the dead
In the field of the chaos, the rivers run red
He's roaming the world, never losing control
A fugutive soul forever alone - ooooh

The Wild Knight, keeper of souls
The Wild Knight, destroyer of all
On the throne of destruction, his path to despair
The Wild Knight is legend, beware

The people were blind, never learned from the past
They'd tasted the blood on the tip of his lance
Into the battle his vengeance was sweet
The lucky that lived were dragged back into the keep

The cries of the tortured, wrihing in pain
Begging forgiveness and calling his name
The iron was hotand the flesh burned so well
The bodies were thrown in the pit that is hell

The Wild Knight, keeper of souls
The Wild Knight, destroyer of all
On the throne of destruction, his path to despair
The Wild Knight is legend, beware!
 
 
Souls of Sin
We spit in your direction
We are animals at heart
Left on Devil's Island
We'll tear the world apart
No ships seen on horizon
No food left in the store
High and dry and scavenging
Around these deadly shores

Black death is overhead
Withnessing our cries
The sun beats down mercilessly
On our mates to die
The night-time and the jungle
The terror in our minds
In narrowed eyes the question begs,
Who will be tonight?

Souls of sin
On this devils island
Souls of sin
Where no eagles fly

Daybreak it shatters me
And forces me awake
They got to get me somehow
My battered bones won't break
My tortured body aches and sweats
Refusing to give in
All I have for company
Are bastard souls of sin

Souls of sin
On this devils island
Souls of sin
Where no eagles fly
 
 
Theatre of Blood
Welcome my brothers, to this midnight show
The price of entrance, is the ticket to your soul
It's a special showing, especially for you
Roll up, roll up and you can join our mystery
We are the reapers, now yor're answering to me
In your direction, I give a royal bow
The curtain's up, too late lo let you out

So, here you are
In the theater of blood
Nothing protects you
In the theatre of blood

We have the keys to open up your heart
To look inside and taste the fear within
If you're a sinner, I hope you'll stand the heat
You have to pay the wages of your sins

So, here you are
In the theater of blood
Nothing protects you
In the theatre of blood
 
 
Heads Held High
We've been done for metal
We got metal in our veins - hands held high
Got mayhem in our hearts
An it's tearing us apart - heads held high
We love the feel of leather
The coldness of the steel - hands held high
We are the metal warriors
Not seventh sons of whores - heads held high

We live our lives on energy
We've learned to take the pain - hands held high
Within denim, lace and dignity
We shout our name with pride - heads held high
We've got passion that's on overload
Our faith will never die - hands held high
So we scream it out for liberty
With fists up to the sky - heads held high

We are on a mission, A mission from god

We are army an true and strong
Our ranks will never break - hands held high
Our voices rend the universe
So loyal that it aches - heads held high
In legenday brotherhood
Just doing as we please - hands held high
They try so hard to bring us down
But never to our knees - heads held high

We'll fight our way through thick and thin
To hear the metal call - hands held high
No power on earth stands over us
That's why we stand so tall - heads held high
For those of you who do not hear
This sacred call within - hands held high
For sanity and metal's sake
This battle we will win - heads held high
 
 
Dr. Sardonicus
I stand alone in my tower in the sky
With my creations always at my side
The many-headed, deformities of limb
I watch them dreaming of a life I cannot give

I tried to give the life
But yes, I always failed
These are the creatures
Of what wizardy made
They'll break the chains
That's my only hold
These are the people
Who won't do what they're told

Dr. Sardonicus - Won't you please set us free
Dr. Sardonicus - It's no life that we lead
Dr. Sardonicus - You promised us life
Dr. Sardonicus - Was it all just a lie

I feel the terror and it cuts like a knife
The staring eyes in the quivering light
Closer and closer, they start to mover in
To necromance my essence from within

I tried to give them life
But yes, I always failed
These are the creatures
Of what wizardy made
They'll break the chains
That's my only hold
These are the people
Who won't do what they're told

Dr. Sardonicus - Won't you please set us free
Dr. Sardonicus - It's no life that we lead
Dr. Sardonicus - You promised us life
Dr. Sardonicus - Was it all just a lie
 
 
Sinners Are Winners
There once was a man
Started playing this game
Good, bad and ugly
Results were the same, the same

He cheated and lied
'Til he got to the top
Power-mad crazy
Didn't know where to stop, to stop

He just piled his money mountain-high
He took everybody for a ride

Wheeling and dealing
An' all dirty deeds
He ploughed through his rivals
Got fat on his greed, his greed

The arrogant muther
Kicked dirt in the face
Sweetend his deals
Mixed with arsenic and lace, and lace

He just piled his money mountain-high
He took everybody for a ride

Sinners are winners
Never going down

Ruin and want
Are just left in his wake
Riches and glory
All there for the take, the take
One law of the poor
The rest for the rich
There's no way to nail
This son of a bitch, this bitch

And we all know who that is !?

He just piled his money mountain-high
He took everybody for a ride

Sinners are winners
Never going down
 
 
Monster Effect
Dreams - what's haunting me
Fear - that's the key
I'm deader than a dog
With a rattlesnaking cough
My head's between my legs
I'm useless 'til I get my dreams
"They're eating me!"

Chorus:
I'm a living walking nightmare
A testament to fear and they're reaching out for me
There's something in my head
I want to close my eyes, but they're always
In there, messin' with my dreams
"They're eating me!"

I close my eyes with darkness all around
The shapes move in and pin me to the ground
I hear my screams and they're inside my head
I think I'm suffering from the monster effect

I'm asking for asylum
Somewhere in bedlam town
The sands of time have run out
Bleeding madness all behind
Please unlock this door
And leave the craziness behind
Say - goodnight - mind

Chorus
 
 
Serpent's Kiss
She moved a little closer
She was hypnotizing him
Had him in her power
He's desperate to break free
Nowhere to run
And there was nowhere to hide
The serpent's kiss is deadly
It turns your heart to ice

Here she comes, once again
Terror in my face

I gotta get, outta here
From her killing embrace

She's got a serpent's kiss
And she will never miss

Just like a spider
That weaves you in its web
He is the dinner
On the sacrificial bed
The tounge's so sweet
Asit coils around his neck
A taste of heaven
As she empties out his head

Here she comes, once again
Terror in my face

I gotta get, out of here
From her killing embrace
 
 
Sons of Darkness
Turn back the tide of a thousand years
When the hunted were many, the land was in tears
The dark one has placed his hands on the earth
His minions, no mercy, no quarter today
The dreams of the men were shattered and drawn
With death in the valleys and fire in the glens
The old and the sick were slaughtered in vain
Left for the ravens to be carried away

In the deepest of lairs, he summoned his hordes
Begin, sons of darkness, the mother of wars
Spread my disease on this pestilent race
The fighting, the burning, the sword and the mace
He gazed in the flames, the beast that was he
He now was the master of all he did see
The wails of the women, the charnel house smell
He laughed at their bodies, the tears for the dead

Hail, Sons of darkness
Hail, warriors call
Hail, we'll conquer together
Hail, my carrion hordes

The earth it was riven, scarred in pain
The people were solemn, laughter insane
No hope for the future, just a gateway to Hade
Infernal damnation for the weak and the lame
Cruel winter, came for all, was too soon
Perished the forests and withered the blooms
Nothing was worthy to stand in his way
He sought out a plan to conquer today

Hail, Sons of darkness
Hail, warriors call
Hail, we'll conquer together
Hail, my carrion hordes

Sons of darkness, with banners held high
Sons of darkness, you're marching to die

He gathered around him mystics and seers
Dark incantations to pass on the years
Spells that were spoken and chants that were made
A devilish future was all that he craved
Black swirling midnight, his time it had come
To travel in time, in an instant was done
He burst on our world filled with anger and hate
Destroyer of dreams, deceider of fates

Reborn in nirvana to murder and maim
It's you that have called him, and you know his name
His guises are many, the lord of the lies
He feeds on your fears and darkens the skies
His orders are written in granite and stone
You'll kneel at the throne made from blood and from bones
The left hand is icy, caressing the skulls
The right hand has brandished the sceptre of souls
 
 
D.Y.T.W.A.C.
One day the Prince will come
And light the night
He will rule over us
And restore our sight
Nothing of evil remains
Blinded by his light

How long have we been waited
Waited for the man to come
Do you think we are crazy?

Is he the Saviour we know
Or is he just a dream
Another madman playing a game
We'll have to shout out our screams

You're telling me that you know that you're right
I'm telling you you're wrong
Are you the son of a preacher man?
Always singing this song
You look at me and you ask me why
I'm telling you no lies
If you want to hear the truth
You'd better open your eyes

Bodies
(by Sex Pistols. Japanese bonus)
She was a girl from Birmingham
She just had an abortion
She was a case of insanity
Her name was Pouline, she lived in a tree

She wants to know what had killed her baby
She sent the letters from the country
She was an animal
She was a bloody disgrace

Chorus:
Body, I'm not an animal
Mummy, I'm not an animal

Dragged on a table in a factory
Illegitimate place to be
In a packet in a lavatory
Dying little baby screaming

Funny screaming fucking blooky mad
It's not an animal
It's an abortion

Chorus

Throbbing squirm, gurgling bloody mess
I'm not a discharge
I'm not a loos in protein
I'm not a throbbing squirm
Ah!

Fuck this and fuck that fuck it all and
Fuck the fucking brat
She don't want a baby that looks like that
I don't want a baby that looks like that

Body I'm not an animal
Body I'll go shit

Body I'm not an animal
Body I'm not an animal

I'm not an animal
I'm not an animal

Mummy!
