Dawn of the Brave
(Instrumental)
 
 
Fight for Your Life
The whole world against you?
Bad things you've been through?
Ignore disbelievers, the so called achievers.
You are just doing it right.

You're facing haters?
Marooned by traitors?
Every morning, instead of mourning
Wake up and stand up to fight.

And by time this elegy,
Is healing wounds, and blinded eyes will see.
Lost in eternity, banned for all times?
Fight for your life.

Ref.
Are you bound in darkness?
Is it that you miss the light?
Fight for your life.
Imagine getting stronger instead of feeling weak inside.
Fight for your life.

Betrayed by liars?
You're trapped by fires?
Just feel empowered, every hour,
Knowing you're just doing right.

And by time this threnody
Is giving life for those who dare to feel.
Creating reality from the inside.
Fight for your life.

Ref.
Are you bound in darkness?
Is it that you miss the light?
Fight for your life.
Imagine getting stronger
instead of feeling weak inside.
Fight for your life.

Wipe off all misgivings,
Knowing you have always tried.
Fight for your life.
Nevermind convictors.
Let your inner hero rise.
Fight for your life.

Fill your soul with pride,
Reminding you to fight for your life.

And by time this symphony,
Is getting real, surviving endlessly.
You're writing history line by line.
Fight for your life.

Ref.
Are you bound in darkness?
Is it that you miss the light?
Fight for your life.
Imagine getting stronger
instead of feeling weak inside.
Fight for your life.

Oooh,
Knowing you have always tried.
Fight for your life.
Nevermind convectors.
Let your inner hero rise.
Fight for your life.

We are at your side
Day by day, and night by night.
Fill your soul with pride
Reminding you to fight for your life.

Fight!
 
 
To the Mountains
We were called tonight by grey gulls once again.
From most far, coldest north they came.
We will join this ride, there and back again.
Into the dark through wind and rain.

It has been way more than many years ago:
Last time we fought side by side.
It will be a triumphal reunion
When the two of us unite.

Our fear yields excitement.
We are one million mates, so I
Will surely stand my ground tonight.

Ref.
To the mountains and beyond.
Through oceans and skies
And then to the other side.

Off to the mountains and beyond.
Through woods in blackened nights.
Off to the mountains we will ride.

Gathering.
Tonight we will forgive our sins.
We rove, we wander, and we roam.
Don't hurt our pride.
No, you should better step aside
As we are surely marching on.

Our fear yields excitement.
We are one million mates, so I
Will surely stand my ground tonight.

Ref.
To the mountains and beyond.
Through oceans and skies
And then to the other side.

Off to the mountains and beyond.
Through woods in blackened nights.
Off to the mountains we will ride.

To the mountains side.
Then to the other side.
Off to the mountains side.
Then to the other side.

Our fear yields excitement.
We are one million mates, so I
Will surely stand my ground tonight.

And if I'd be falling
I'd surely hear a calling
To meet my gods on the other side.

Ref. (x2)
To the mountains and beyond.
Through oceans and skies
And then to the other side.

Off to the mountains and beyond.
Through woods in blackened nights.
Off to the mountains we will ride.
 
 
Badaboom
An ancient legacy turned into a song of confidence and hope.
Spreading endlessly.
A view to the end of all horizons and beyond.

We'll get to the core tonight.
Our forces will prevail.
For too long we've been doomed.
Release our Badaboom.

Rumors were afloat, turned into reality
And finally brought to life.

Letters that we wrote
Became a melody
Granting deep insight.

And we'll find a way through darkest nights.
Our road enlightened by the moon.
Every step will lead us closer to our might
Our final aim appearing soon.
Release our Badaboom.

From no one to someone.
From nowhere to somewhere.
To any places that can be.
We will find our way through darkest coldest nights.
This is for eternity.
 
 
The Final Countdown
(by Europe.)
We're leaving together
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back,
To earth, who can tell?

I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground (leaving ground)
Will things ever be the same again?
It's the final countdown.

The final countdown.

Oh, we're heading for Venus (Venus)
And still we stand tall
'Cause maybe they've seen us
And welcome us all, yeah
With so many light years to go
And things to be found (to be found)
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so
It's the final countdown.

The final countdown.

The final countdown (final countdown).

Oh... oh

The final countdown.

Oh... oh

It's the final countdown.

The final countdown.

The final countdown. (final countdown)

It's the final countdown
We're leaving together
The final countdown
We'll all miss her so
It's the final countdown (final countdown)
Oh, it's the final countdown.
 
 
Steel Breaker
I am on a hunt tonight, cool and anticipating.
Looking out if someone's there for me.
A trip to my real wild side.
Another endless ride from here to everything I'll ever be.

I already shoot as you still load.
Dead on target, ready to explode.

Ref.
I pull the trigger, I'm the Steel Breaker.
Out of my way.
Steel Breaker.
Turning night into day.
Steel Breaker.
Listen to what I say.

Another night, I am the
Steel Breaker.
On the run
Steel Breaker.
Yeah, now let it come.
Steel Breaker.
Shut up, bring it on.

Another night became my friend.
Wild and alive I am, hungry for some more, don't let it end.
My reputation preceding me and while staring back at me
I overtake at supersonic speed.

I already shoot as you still load.
Dead on target, ready to explode.

Ref.
I pull the trigger, I'm the Steel Breaker.
Out of my way.
Steel Breaker.
Turning night into day.
Steel Breaker.
Listen to what I say.

Another night, I am the
Steel Breaker.
On the run
Steel Breaker.
Yeah, now let it come.
Steel Breaker.
Shut up, bring it on.

They are backbiting me.
2 out of 7 is what they have for me.
Still they didn't write a single song, not a single one.
Voices all around.
I love to hear the crowd.
40.000, 50.000, one for all.
All for one.

Tales are told, worlds unfold.
He's back in town with balls of seven tons.
He is the Steel Breaker.

Ref.
Steel Breaker.
Out of my way.
Steel Breaker.
Turning night into day.
Steel Breaker.
Listen to what I say.

Another night, I am the
Steel Breaker.
On the run
Steel Breaker.
Yeah, now let it come.
Steel Breaker.
Shut up, bring it on.

I pull the trigger, I am the
Steel Breaker. (x3)
Listen to what I say.

Another night, I am the
Steel Breaker.
On the run
Steel Breaker.
Yeah, now let it come.
Steel Breaker.
Shut up, bring it on.

I am the Steel Breaker.
 
 
The Awakening
Ref.
The awakening of a morning dawn.
Opens up the gate for times to come, to aims and beyond.
The awakening of a new aeon
Will tell us the missions to be done.
An icy gloria.
Awake is what we are.
Awake and aware. (x3)

In this brotherhood of life
we are the unforsaken.
For years and years we had been lost.
Today will finally be our time.
They build the walls, we break'em.
Recall: to leave is to arrive.

On our way, there's a land under our feet.
And I know that you will always keep your eyes on me.

Ref.
The awakening of a morning dawn.
Opens up the gate for times to come, to aims and beyond.
The awakening of a new aeon
Will tell us the missions to be done.
An icy gloria.

No rain to wash away our sins.
We felt so forced and driven.
We have been homeless, so we'll be.
But there is still much life within.
We are the unforgiven.
We will be more than what we've been.

On our way, there's a land under our feet.
And I know that you will always keep your eyes on me.

Ref.
The awakening of a morning dawn.
Opens up the gate for times to come, to aims and beyond.
The awakening of a new aeon
Will tell us the missions to be done.
An icy gloria.
Awake is what we are.
Awake and aware. (x3)

Countless nights, I'm still awake.
For an endless sleep I wait.
In a minute, I'll be gone, awaiting dawn.

Countless nights, I'm still awake.
For an endless sleep I wait.
In a minute, I'll be gone, and I am awaiting dawn.

Times I am doubting. Times I feel weak.
Times and times I'm struggling to believe it gets better. Every day
We keep track and we'll follow this way.

Ref. (x2)
The awakening of a morning dawn.
Opens up the gate for times to come, to aims and beyond.
The awakening of a new aeon
Will tell us the missions to be done.
An icy gloria.

Awake is what we are.
Awake and aware. (x3)

We're awake and we'll be there
 
 
The Other Ones
All have come, heeding the call.
Gathering secretly while kingdoms fall.
Drawing new Borders by mountains as tall
As our gods had once created them in mighty halls.

None shall ever take our faith away.

We are the other ones, unique and united.
We are the other ones.
Those who will succeed.
We are the other ones.
Strong willed and united.
Once more we returned to be the other ones.

We will leave for a place we'd once called our own.
Until this, our fortress away had been blown.
By forces that banished us to the unknown.
Still we are the strange outsiders.

Roaring thunder, wind and rain,
Whirlswinds are at our side. There to remain.
None shall ever banish us again.

Now that I know this will not end.
I do understand that I am alone.
But then we are more than just one.
We are all but conform, still wandering on.
We are the other ones.

Now that all have come.
This last day has begun.
And by the rise of thousand suns.
We know what we'll become:
The other ones.
 
 
Holding Out for a Hero
(by Bonnie Tyler.)
Where have all the good men gone and where are all the gods?
Where's the street wise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
He's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure and he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
Larger than life

Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasies
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There's someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
He's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure and he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night

Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I can swear that there's someone somewhere watching me
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach like a fire in my blood

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
He's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure and he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
He's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure and he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
 
 
Unholy
I feel the skies are closing in.
There is an unease deep within,
Slowly crawling to the core,
Drooling over more.

In your deviant state of mind the wheel of time still turning, you think you are the one.
By fires you've been burning worlds to pieces, nothing remains.

Ref.
In vain to fireflight the fiend in you, the demon deep inside.
You were born unholy.

You are shading lives.
No matter what,
Your nature's built on lies
You're born unholy.

I am disgusted by your words.
They are causing an alert and I am feeling mesmerized.
I will not accept your lies.

And so I'm trying to foresee your decisions in the making.
Ignore your two-faced mind.
By rumors you've been breaking worlds to pieces nothing remains.

Ref.(x2)
In vain to fireflight the fiend in you, the demon deep inside.
You were born unholy.

You are shading lives.
No matter what,
Your nature's built on lies
You're born unholy.

Everything bad you have been now united in you.
Every sin that you commit one day will come back to you.
(x2)

Begone! Nothing will be undone.
Under the next sun you will hide,
Hunted by wolves you will run.

Ref. (x2)
In vain to fireflight the fiend in you, the demon deep inside.
You were born unholy.

You are shading lives.
No matter what,
Your nature's built on lies
You're born unholy.

Unholy! (x3)
 
 
My Utopia
I feel the greater sense just by the kind of mood I'm in.
Something touched my core and everything within.

That kind of certitude is attaching wisdom to my mind
That everything that was effects a future life.

On and on to other lands.
My beliefs are my command.
Like a universe, like space that never ends
My Utopia expands.

Ref.
If I die, if I'm at the end of all skies
I try to review my Utopia.

If I'm gone comets I am riding on
They're leading me to my Utopia.

Doubts are closing in, rewinding written scripts of time.
I'm a turning point, at a key scene of my life.

Is this a deja-vu?
Is it something I've been through?
Am I the only one
Whose last will will be done?

Fly to the morning skies with armies of the true believers.
Try. Try another time by breathing hope.
Ride through the waste of time.
Be yourself a pain reliever.
Fight. Multiply the light and space will grow.

On and on to other lands.
My beliefs are my command.
Like a universe, like space that never ends
My Utopia expands.

Ref.
If I die, if I'm at the end of all skies
I try to review my Utopia.

If I'm gone comets I am riding on
They're leading me to my Utopia.

Now that we're flying through eons of time, at speed of light.
Out of the big bang straight into the dark into the night.
(x2)

Fly to the morning skies with armies of the true believers.
Try. Try another time by breathing hope.
Ride through the waste of time.
Be yourself a pain reliever.
Fight. Multiply the light and space will grow.

On and on to other lands.
My beliefs are my command.
Like a universe, like space that never ends
My Utopia expands.

Ref. (x2)
If I die, if I'm at the end of all skies
I try to review my Utopia.

If I'm gone comets I am riding on
They're leading me to my Utopia.
 
 
Into the West
(Lord of the Rings soundtrack)
Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You have come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across a distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping

What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
All Souls pass

Hope fades
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time
Don't say
We have come now to the end
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again
And you'll be here in my arms
Just sleeping

Chorus

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West
 
 
Paranoid
(by Black Sabbath.)
Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
People think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time
All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify

Can you help me occupy my brain?
Oh yeah

I need someone to show me the things in life that I can't find
I can't see the things that make true happiness, I must be blind

Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel and love to me is so unreal

And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it's too late
 
 
If I Die in Battle
(Orchestral version)
Six winds blow as one. They will turn the tide.
We are marching on, standing side by side
And we'll carry on until all the fire is gone
Blown away, away to lands beyond.
Winds blow as one.

They try to oppress us.
Steal the faith out of our lives.
Still they are the flame for dreadful fires.
They try to undermine us night by night.
Now they are unmasked. They're full of lies

They never learned how to stand as one.
And how to abandon fear.
We will be their storm-wall closing in.

If I die in Battle, find dark blood upon my steel.
If I die in Battle, tell them I stood, and never kneeled.
If I die in Battle, my soul will be saved and gone.
I won't die in battle.
I'll fly north with six winds blowing as one.


They did not await us and the kingdom we will raise.
Yes we are their nightmare deep within.
They underestimate us.
Our faith alive for our freedom and our new life to begin.

They will never bring us down.
They never rule our life.
We will be a tempest rising high.

What might end and we'll start again.
We will never die.
We will be a thunderstorm of life.
 
 
My Voice
(Orchestral version)
I've got my will, I've got my heart
Even though I can't tell her right now
I could not stand if I failed
I could not stand if I lost her somehow
I found the book of silence
So keen what it would show
I read the book of silence
How was I supposed to know
My voice would fall asleep and
Rest until this curse is banned and gone?

You hear my call
Wide and tall
Yes, single word
I'm hunting high
Hunting low
I am everywhere
My voice is there
Fills the air
My voice can be heard

I try to open my mind
He doesn't talk, still I'm blind
I try to free all the meanings unknown
I want her to look inside
I cannot see in darkest nights
Until my soul's freed and secrets unfold
I found the book of silence
So keen what it would show
I read the book of silence
How was I supposed to know
My voice would fall asleep and
Never wake again?
To surrender is not
What I learned
I'll fight 'gainst this curse 'til it's gone

I'm riding
Still I'm flying
Everywhere that I can be
I'm trying, believing
My voice will speak again for me

I don't want to speak
I don't want to talk
On every other day
There are million miles to walk
I've got nothing to tell
I've got nothing to say
Alone I fade away
 
 
Take to the Sky
(Orchestral version)
"Faith and creed and my belief
Will make you carry on these wings of trust.
You will fly away.
Just hold on and you'll succeed.
Remember you're the (one)
One
Day one will speak of you
As the light of day."

Only my thoughts will remain.
Nothing that ever took place will smut my name.
I will start over again.
I fly with teardrops in my eyes...
Will I ever return to places I have been?

Chorus:
I take to the sky.
I look back from high above.
I am on target
For something beyond.
I take to the sky.
Still grounded on Mother Earth.
Thankful for strong wings to fly.
I will take to the sky.

I can ensure you that I will always keep you in my heart until I die.
Nothing will part us again.
I fly with teardrops in my eyes.
Will I ever return to places I have been?
For years and years I tried.
I'll finally arrive.
Thunderous the winds will blare my name.

Chorus

solo

"Faith and creed and my belief
Will make you carry on these wings of trust.
You will fly away.
Just hold on and you'll succeed.
Remember you're the (one) one
Day one will speak of you
As the light of day"

Chorus (x2)

"One day one will speak of you
As the light of day"
 
 
Neuer Wind
(Jovian Spin remix)
Es sind jetzt mehr als 1000 Tagé seit du aufgebrochen bist.
Und noch mehr als 100 Stunden bis der Schlaf dir sicher ist

Egal wie sehr du hadern magst, mit diesem Jetzt und Hier.
Die Antwort, die du suchst, liegt noch vor Dir.

Geh diesen Weg.
Dreh nicht weider um.
Geh ihn bis zum Schluss.
Ein Weg der gegangen werden muss.
Es ist nicht merh weit.
Geh noch dieses Stúck.
Und lass dich bitte nicht zurúck

Bei Sturmgewalt und Regen, lauf auf neuen Wegen.
Kopf hoch - Neuer Wind kommt von vorn.

Stemm dich fest dagegen.
Wer nicht kámpft hat schon verloren.
Neuer Wind kommt stets von vorn.

Bei Sturmgewalt und Regen, lauf auf neuen Wegen.
Kopf hoch - Neuer Wind kommt von vorn.

Stemm dich fest dagegen,
Morgen wirst du neu geboren.
Neuer Wind kommt stets von vorn.

Egal wie kalt die Nachte sind, du bist nicht allein.
Hier sammeln sich alle Máchte, lass es deine sein.
Und wenn dun auch an Kraft verlierst verzweifle daran nicht.
Denn sicher ist du hast du immer noch dich.
 
 
Lost Forever
(Acoustic version)
Might be I am lost

There is no reason, no sense
I'm caged in prisons my consciousness built
Always in fearful defense
Always pretending that my will's fulfilled

I have to somehow break out
I have to fight for the freedom to be
What is this life all about?
I have to fight for the right to be free

And so you wonder what have you become?

Might be I am lost forever
Still I'm here to carry on
Even though the road is wayless
I won't doubt, I'm marching on
Might be that I'm lost forever
Walking somewhere far beyond
As long as I roam I don't care
To be lost forevermore

There was a need to be true
I had been hunting for aims that were lies
There is no need to be you
You walk on beaten paths until you die

I went ahead just to see
What I would find there was worth fighting for
I went ahead to be me
And to return to my heart, to my core

Remain in silence, save your words for us
Until the end of time we wander
Roaming to be lost

Might be I am lost forever
Still I'm here to carry on
Even though the road is wayless
I won't doubt, I'm marching on
Might be that I'm lost forever
Walking somewhere far beyond
As long as I roam I don't care
To be lost forevermore

Might be I am lost forever
Still I'm here to carry on
Even though the road is wayless
I won't doubt, I'm marching on
Might be that I'm lost forever
Walking somewhere far beyond
As long as I roam I don't care
To be lost forevermore

Might be I am lost forever
Still I'm here to carry on
Even though the road is wayless
I won't doubt, I'm marching on
Might be that I'm lost forever
Walking somewhere far beyond
As long as I roam I don't care
To be lost forevermore
 
 
Last Night of the Kings
(Choir version)
The castle is lit with candles and torches
The carriages of the nobles arrive in front
The smell of splendour and decadence
And nobody can foresee
The masters and the mistresses are walking into the hall
They are smiling and laughing and showing that they are tall
They don't recognize that we're waiting there
And just nobody can foresee
This is the last night of the kings

We are the folk
And we have the right
To stand up and to fight
For an independent life
We are the force
We are the might
And we will stand up
For an independent life

The ball has begun and we're closing our trap
Inwardly we're gathering ourselves
While the dance comes to higher pace
Still nobody can foresee
Joining the circle, in black robes unknown
Unsheathing our swords and get ready to dance
Our hearts are filled with the will to survive
In this last night of their life
It's a murderous, murderous ball night

We are heroes
Heroes of the night
We are ready to live forevermore
Our gods lead us through this fight
On and on
We are one and on our way
