The Devil Strikes Again
Echoes of evil sound through my head,
I can't believe it 'cause I ought to be dead.
Head for disaster, I've done before.
Go back to my master, I just cannot ignore.
All of these years I have tried to resist,
Now I just see it will always exist...
Hell, what a night,
Now the devil strikes again
Faster than light, back into my life.
Hell, what a night,
Now the devil strikes again
Faster than light, back into my life.
The devil will strike back again!
Out in the black night, back to the grave.
Focused on that sight I just live like a slave.
Ban it from my life, it's lying in wait.
Cursed from my dark side,
Now I know it's too late.
All of those years...
Hell, what a night...
The devil will strike back,
It's blackening my mind once again!
 
 
My Way
Heart over matter, no more excuses tonight,
The earlier the better, let us just put it all right .
It is all moving, time's running faster each day.
No more abusing, let us get better this way.
'Cause in the silence I hear my heart scream
Louder and louder each day.
I am afraid I am losing my dream,
Reset and start once again!
Give me my way or no way at all!
It's heaven or hell!
Just my way, it's my final call,
It's heaven or hell!
It's my way or it's the highway,
It's my way, it's heaven or hell!
You can't repeat it, life is a one-off-shot thing.
Don't leave me bleeding,
Let me cure my broken wings.
'Cause in the silence...
 
 
Back on Track
Awoken from a winter's night,
Shake off the dust and wipe my eyes.
The rays of sun in early spring
Melt ice and snow, surround my skin.
I just can't recall the times,
I was unconscious, black in mind.
The demons of the past are dead,
It's about time to lift my head.
In this life we all get our chances,
Just be clear or they will pass you by.
What you send out will be reflected,
What you ask for, there is a reply
Back on track, we're gonna turn it all around,
Heading for eternity, get ready for attack.
Back on track, we're gonna turn it upside down.
We're heading for eternity,
We're gonna get it back... on track.
The lonely years are gone, you see,
I'm stepping out, you're here with me.
I have denied myself too long,
Was present but my mind was gone.
It's my responsibility
For what I started, now I see.
And then the here and now will be
The essence of our history.
 
 
The Final Curtain
Fear is epidemic, brutality and lust,
Humanity is drowning in the dust.
Disasters of the future -
The heritage of the past.
No one knows how long we're gonna last.
Do you believe me, the times are getting rough,
This will be the end, the final curtain falls.
Would you believe me,
We've had it all too much
This will be the end, the final curtain falls.
Servant finds a master,
The master claims he's god.
Break the circle and trust me, he is not!
Once a stone is rolling
You cannot turn it around.
Unstoppable it's crumbling to the ground.
 
 
War
In the eyes of the big global players everything's alright,
It's their god-given right to abuse us,
So thank you and good night.
In the world's biggest money machine
They're delivering the fuel.
Let there be some collateral damage,
That's their pervert rule,
Yes, that's their perfect rule.
That little girl in ruins
Gets a roaring lullaby.
And we all close our eyes,
'Cause it's our war
Just war, killing everyone
That's war, just war, let'em jump the gun
War, our profit for their lives
Endless war, can religion justify
Holy war, and we sacrifice the truth
For that war, yes it's cynical but this is our war
In the world of elected deceivers,
The lobbies on their heels,
They will claim that we need the employment
To justify their deals.
And all those with no access to power,
They slay us with their gods
But their hate makes them even worse
Than all what they hate the most,
Now everything is lost.
The little girl in ruins,
She won't wake up to the day.
And now we close our eyes,
'Cause it's our war
Just war, killing everyone
That's war, just war, let'em jump the gun
War, our profit for their lives
Endless war, can religion justify
Holy war, and we sacrifice the truth
For that war, yes it's cynical,
It's all so cynical,
'Cause this is our war!
 
 
Ocean Full of Tears
When everything in me is dead
There is a void inside my head.
And my direction disappears
To leave me drowning in my fears.
Then from the ashes I will crawl,
Just to find myself in free fall.
It's like the tumbling of the dice,
My life is spinning in your lies.
You've turned my world from upside down,
All I have lost just can't be found,
My inner self's an empty shell,
How can I break free from this hell.
So many dark and lonely nights,
So many cracks I've tried to hide.
You leave me shattered in disgrace,
I'm disappearing in the haze.
I can't get over you,
You're an ocean full of tears.
To free my head from you
Needs an ocean full of tears.
I don't expect you to believe
How much my life's disturbed in grief.
Still I can't tread on safer ground
As all your poison's still around.
Time is a healer, so they say
And I can't wait to see the day
When all the truth will come to light,
When finally wrong turns to right.
 
 
Deaf, Dumb And Blind
Have you ever read between the lines,
Can you see, we're heading for decline.
We declare to be the crown of all,
Don't you just forget, all kings must fall.
Don't you think it's funny,
Who do we think that we are.
While we cannot save ourselves at all,
Save us from the fall.
Are we deaf and dumb and blind?
As we mistreat our kind.
Are you deaf and dumb and blind?
You could be the next in line...
Do you ever feel superior
And divide the world in good and bad?
So we wipe away what we don't like,
Who is not our friend, he shall be dead.
Deaf! Dumb! And blind!
 
 
Spirits of the Night
Face of horror, walls of death,
The depths in our mind.
No tomorrow, evil blessing,
The horror of the blind.
I have looked into your eyes,
I didn't recognize.
There only was a blackened shadow
Screaming as it dies.
Waking to the light,
Perception makes me scream,
'Cause reality
Is worse than I could dream.
The spirits of the night live on and on,
The visions of that dream, it won't be gone.
The spirits of the night won't leave me,
The spirits of the night, they live on and on.
Come the morning, help me breathe,
I must escape the night.
Let me just abandon this,
I know it wasn't right.
Like a cancer in the flesh
It's eating up my brain.
Just a spiral downwards bound,
All hatred turns to pain.
 
 
Times of Darkness
See the fires, smoking guns,
Death is all around.
No desires on the run,
Misery we've found.
Everyone we've seen
Has been through hell,
Had that war in their eyes.
Total darkness, no more tears,
End of all we've known.
Reign of madness, reign of fear,
What have we become?
Is there a way back?
Can we forgive?
In these times of darkness
All humanity had died.
Thirty years that war was raging on.
In these times of darkness
When mankind denied itself,
Burned into the memory of all souls.
Empty faces, hollow cheeks,
All the hope is gone.
For survival we're too weak,
This war can't be won.
All this endless death, it was in vain...
 
 
The Dark Side of the Sun
In my nightmares, when I die,
I just see my long forgotten, breaking eyes.
I'm afraid I lived a lie,
My life's challenges, I never did reply.
All so many doors I haven't tried,
All those wasted chances, 'cause I was afraid.
All the people that I never reached a hand,
'Til it was too late, I'm on my final stand.
I'm the only one
On a journey to the
Dark side of the sun
I'm almost dead and gone
On my journey to the
Dark side of the sun
Nothing will be won
On my journey to the
Dark side of the sun
I'm eternal gone
On my journey to the
Dark side of the sun
That's just our eternal fear,
To have left out our chances while we're here.
And we find our spirits clear,
But the flesh is weak and rotten, it appears.
 
 
Bring Me Down
Life is short and I've been wasting time
Spending all those years
In this treadmill of lies.
It felt so numb when I had lost my touch
To all that I believed in,
Never asked for the why.
Yes, I know it's late, for sure (Yes, I know)
Better late than never, that's a word,
The game is over for you
There is nothing we'd be sharing
Not a reason for comparing,
Nothing anymore can bring me down.
In my new world it's too late
For you to spread your fear and hate,
From now on you cannot bring me down.
It's enough and I can't take no more
Of this endless trail of torment and tears.
Disrespect for all that I have made,
Well, it shows so clearly for what you are here.
Say goodbye, you cannot bring me down
 
 
Requiem
Dry your tears!
Now is the time for peace
Time to look up and let it go,
Reach out your hand and
You will find what you have lost.
Wake up from all those wasted years,
Think for yourself, forget your fears.
Deep inside there is a flame,
Rising higher every day.
I know I am heading for the end.
Can I turn around? For sure
I don't need it anymore.
Feels like I write my own requiem.
Dare to win!
Trust in the hands of fate.
Open your eyes and you will see,
You will find help where
You will not expect it now.
You have it all in your own hands,
Look at yourself and you will find...
 
 
Into the Fire
I remember when I was a young man
I was lonely, no one seemed to understand.
Though I searched I couldn't find companions,
No one there for me
That reached a helping hand.
So it came I'd be a loner,
I was wondering through my silent universe,
It took me years to find the answers,
Find that all I needed was within.
I have seen the truth in one perception
And the story is unfolded.
Send my vision to the stars
And they will answer to me now.
Into the fire
And out of the cold,
Stripped to the wire by forces untold.
Into the fire,
I'm forged in the flames
Made from desires of one million dreams.
Don't you know the future
Has been written long ago.
There's no stupid question
In a world that's mad, you know.
And in every end
There lies a new beginning, so
All is heaven sent,
You only can be winning now.
Time to be reborn into the fire
Now you'll be reborn,
You will be forged,
Forged in the fire
 
 
Slave to the Grind
(by Skid Row.)
You got me forced to crack my lids in two
I'm still stuck inside this rubber room
I gotta punch the clock that leads the blind
I'm just another gear in the assembly line - oh no

The noose gets tighter around my throat
But I ain't at the end of my rope 'cause
I won't be the one left behind
Can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind

Get it?

A routine injection, a lethal dose
But my day in the sun ain't even close
There's no need to waste your prayers on me
You better mark my words 'cause I'm history
Yes indeed

You might beg for mercy to get by
But I'd rather tear this thorn from my side

I won't be the one left behind
You can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind

They swallowed their daggers by turning their trick
They tore my intentions apart brick by brick
I'm sick of the jive
You talk verbal insecticide

They swallowed their daggers by turning their trick
They tore my intentions apart brick by brick
I'm sick of the jive
You talk verbal insecticide

I won't be the one left behind

You can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
You can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind

I said slave to the grind
Slave to the grind
Slave to the grind
 
 
Bravado
(by Rush.)
If we burn our wings
Flying too close to the sun
If the moment of glory
Is over before it's begun
If the dream is won -
Though everything is lost
We will pay the price,
But we will not count the cost

When the dust has cleared
And victory denied
A summit too lofty
River a little too wide
If we keep our pride -
Though paradise is lost
We will pay the price,
But we will not count the cost

And if the music stops
There's only the sound of the rain
All the hope and glory
All the sacrifice in vain
(And) if love remains
Though everything is lost
We will pay the price,
But we will not count the cost
 
 
Open Fire
(by Y&T.)
So far somehow I've managed to keep control
It's time to get them balls free to roll
I save it all up for the right time to let it go, go, go
Fair warning, be ready, I'm gonna explode

All week long gonna prime up for what we do
And when I get it up, gonna spend some time with you
Have me some fun, gonna shoot my guns in the sky
Now you know but oh, it's easy to fly, I'm flying high

Open fire when I hit the stage
Gonna open fire all over this place
Open fire in a rocking rage
Oh, oh, I'm gonna open fire

Lights go down, you know I'm gonna tear it up
Get real gnarly, we're gonna strut our stuff
Like a short fuse on a stick of dynamite
Full blast, oh, now we're gonna ignite
Blow up the night, do it right, I'm gonna ignite

Open fire when I hit the stage
Gonna open fire all over this place
Open fire in a rocking rage
Oh, oh, I'm gonna open fire

Set me free, light my fuse
Gonna blow up the night, yeah

So far somehow I've managed to keep control
Well, it's time to set them balls free to roll
I save it all up for the right time to let it go, go, go
Fair warning, be ready, I'm gonna explode

You better light my fuse
Get ready, I'm gonna explode

Open fire when I hit the stage
Gonna open fire all over this place
Open fire in a rocking rage
Oh, oh, I'm gonna open fire

Wow, set me free right now
Light my fuse
Gonna blow up the night
