Regicide
"...While king Henry III of France was preparing to attack Paris, on august 1st, 1589 a Dominican monk asked for access to the king because of secret documents he owns
While whispering into his ear, the monk plunged a knife into the king's body the guards killed the monk, but the people praised the assassination as the judgement of god"

Way down, but you pushed me too many times
Lay down, because of you I feel I'm dead inside
Way down, so you killed me one too many times
Lay down, because of you now I will rise, yes now I will rise...

Way down, you pushed me too many times
Lay down, because of you I'm dead inside
Crucified but the world keeps turning, you won't let me go
Raise the flag and kill me stunning, you reap what you sow

Give me everything you can't hide
I can see through your eyes
To the center of your weird mind... All the anger is inside

On the morning after the king has lost his crown
Only tears and laughter come together now
When my senses fail us, I'll fade without a sound
When I see you fail, I'll break in to break you down
Regicide

Lay down, I'm sick of waiting for the start
Pray now, my hate courts now your lonely heart
Try to teach myself forever compassion for my life
Time has come to make a difference, now my blood will rise

To the nightfall of my kingdom
Angels cry while we sleep
A king reborn, a prophecy forlorn was once buried deep
 
 
Children of the Future
Rise now, before the gods
So we can rescue
The children of the future
Stand strong, before the lords
Now we can rescue
The children of the future

Forging hatred in a world of doom
Causing death in this holy womb
They would never see it coming
Through the gates of fear
Bow your head and don't abandon hope
Hanging from an endless rope
On their way to the Volga river
Through the gates of fear

The warlords are calling
Tsar's troops have defeated all they see
The rebels are falling
It's all that they will decree

Victory death, only time could tell
Razin sent to the gates of hell
Generations of imagination
Through the gates of fear
Fallen are all the ones who wait
Landlords have now changed their fate
Fighting to protect the future
Through the gates of fear

The warlords are calling
Tsar's troops have defeated all they see
The rebels are falling
It's all that they will decree

Rise now, before the gods
So we can rescue
The children of the future
Stand strong, before the lords
Now we can rescue
The children of the future

The warlords are calling
Tsar's troops have defeated all they see
The rebels are falling
It's all that they will decree

Rise now, before the gods
So we can rescue
The children of the future
Stand strong, before the lords
Now we can rescue
The children of the future

Rise now, before the gods
So we can rescue
The children of the future
Stand strong, before the lords
Now we can rescue
The children of the future
The children of the future
Oh, let them go - now!
 
 
Guilty As Charged
21 years gone, getting hard to stay strong
Took away his dignity, should he wait so long?

Banished in this endless darkness
Evil holding the chains
Body's screaming mind is aching
Freedom runs through his veins
You can't kill him
Guilty, guilty as charged

Locked inside a rusty cage, took away his legacy
Taken by the military, in a war they wage

You know they'll never let him go, you gotta let him go
You know they'll never let him go, so come and tell me now

Are you so deaf you can't hear him scream at night
The world is waiting for his freedom
Are you so blind, that the truth is in the fight?
What did he do to make him
Guilty, guilty as charged

He'll never get out, get out alive
But he's gotta survive
Never losing, the pain in his head
He might as well be dead
 
 
Hail to the King
"...Dhatusena (455-473) was the first king by the Moriyan dynasty of Sri Lanka, in 473 his own son Kasyapa overthrew and murdered him by entombing him
Inside a wall some say Dhatusena always knew, this will happen as god's will and so he excused for his son's atrocity..."

Wading through the halls of misery
Crawling through your dreams
Hail and praise the king!

It wasn't the time for us, my inner voices say
I lift up my holy hands, shine brighter every day
As the dawn reveals now the end of time, my father will not remain

Far beyond the other side you'll guide my way
Like a star in the night, it's my legacy
Hail to the king

I'm giving myself up and now there's fire in my brain
I'm locked in a memory garden, burns me down insane
Now that I pretend to close my eyes, you will now cross the line

Far beyond the other side you'll guide my way
Like a star in the night, my legacy
Will you ever betray my trust in you
Leave a sign and the light will guide me through
Hail to the king

God in between
Far beyond the other side you'll guide my way
Like the dark in the night... My enemy
 
 
Losing My Mind
"...In some historic origins, it's written, that Charles II of Navarre (1332-1387), known as 'Charles the Bad' also suffered on schizophrenia.
One person inside pushed him to kill himself the other told him to heal all the scars. A religious but violent dance of death every night while he was losing his mind..."

Out of sight, there is no one who seems to care
Out of life but it doesn't feel right
All the time you make sure that pain awakes but I know I am here to survive

Now you crossed lines, your cheating hate n' lies that's all I see as I look in your eyes
I'm crying my tears, you're causing my fears, don't turn away...

Every night I'm losing my mind
Where do I go from here, I'm losing my pride
I heal the scars in your heart

While I'm breathing the air, walls are closing in
I walk up to the room, I'm your guide
All the pride and the pain we're now drowning in, you can't see I'm a wolf in disguise

Now I'm inside, trapped in your mind, this time I brought you down to your knees
You're crawling through tears, surrounded by fear... But don't turn away!

Every night I'm losing my mind
Where do I go from here, I'm losing my pride
I heal the scars while I'm losing my mind
To heal your scars is my destiny
 
 
Kingslayer
(Instrumental)
 
 
Kingdom of the Blind
Open up your eyes and see the sky
A lonely prophet lost amongst the hate
All these wasted years, we've gone too far but we must try
Is there any chance, for tomorrow?

Blinded by the darkness
Searching for the light
You tell me, you can't see me, we know the reason why

It's our destiny
So we hide behind the mask
Kill our enemies
In the kingdom of the blind
Feel the power within
Way beyond our selfish pride
Let the games begin
When the blind leads the blind into the darkness and the hate
In the kingdom of the blind
The one-eyed are king

So the human race has gone astray
Our humanity fighting to escape
Face the consequence, stems such a heavy price to pay
This atrocity, so much sorrow

Blinded by the darkness
Searching for the light
You tell me, you can't see me, we know the reason why
 
 
Headstrong
"...Chronicles say that Minamoto No Tametomo (1139-1170) was maybe the first Chinese warrior to commit seppuku. After his final defeat the palace was set on fire...
Throughout his entire life, strength and staying strong has ever been the only way he decided not to be captured,
So he killed himself by slicing his abdomen... And seppuku became the code of honor..."

I hear them coming, coming from behind
You can hear my heart beating in the dead of night
I give you my devotion but I'm losing time
And the demons are dark in my mind

You see me falling, falling from the light
I have shared my emotions, who's the last in line
You reveal your devotion, with your blazing might
But you scarify me from inside, sacrifice what burns you from the light

Staying headstrong, standing so strong
Staying wherever you wanna go

The voices calling, in the middle of the night
Descend to meet my fate now, I stare into the sky
And the black mess is holding on to the morning light
While the preacher is sharpening his knife

The bells are tolling and candles burning bright
Now the darkness surrounds me and devours all light
Still the rain now is falling, as you washed away my life
But you scarify me from inside, sacrifice what burns me from the light

Staying headstrong, standing so strong
Staying wherever you wanna go
Staying headstrong wherever you go

You, stay, strong, deep in the ground
You, stay, strong, there's blood on the ground

Red Flag
"...Ching Shih (1775-1844) was the most successful and feared pirate lord in all of history with her fleet, the red flags,
She terrorized the Chinese seas, and remained unbeatable until she died of old age - undefeated..."

From this day, you will follow her every will
From her rule you cannot flee
Fiercest lord you will ever see - she won't stand still
From this day, you will call me your private god
Prove yourself, don't disobey
Fear me now until your last day - I'm your lord

Fire! - Nothing's gonna stop her

Red flags fly on the sea - give up surrender, 'cause you can't flee
She's the force you won't see, but you'll feel
In silence you will hear - one you now fear all across the sea
She's the reason you'll fall - hear her call

In this life, you will question no word she speaks
In her eyes you cannot be
Stronger, sharper than she can be - you can't fool me
We will see how you prove yourself under me
Fail and you're food for the sea
Come obey in this brave red fleet - your lord is Shih (She)
