Hallowed
Sacred - standing full of pride
Spite on my mind, spite in my brain
Guiding me to fight
Enchained - you pray to be a slave
Rules without sense, no little sense
To dust you will decay

Chorus

Hallowed be my name
Hallowed be my name
God of creation
You beg for damnation
You think you can serve me in hate
Hallowed be my name
Hallowed be my name
God of creation
You beg for damnation
You think you can serve me in hate

Hatred - pushed into a war
Those who blaspheme
Don't join your way
Dying by your sword
Sacred - hallowed be my name
For 
 
 
Misguiding Your Life
A dawn on the run
Nowhere to hide
In a world of corruption
Insanity has won
I'm living in hate
And preaching destruction

I'm screaming "tonight"
My vengeance to fight
Has killed all morality
The cries of the toll
And madness control
And liberate my energy - axe to the wax

Chorus

Misguiding your life
You'll reach the empire of madness
I will be rife - driven by insanity or hate
Misguiding your life
You'll reach the empire of madness
I will be rife - driven by insanity or hate

Lunacy and rage
Rage in my head
Reign back to back
Come and be my slave
The beauty in your face
Will be fading to black

I'm screaming "tonight"
My vengeance to fight
Has killed all my morality
The cries of the toll
And madness control
And liberate my energy - axe to the wax

Chorus

Misguiding your life
You'll reach the empire of madness
I will be rife - driven by insanity or hate
Misguiding your life
You'll reach the empire of madness
I will be rife - driven by insanity

I misguide your life

Solo: Jens / Dirk

Chorus

Misguiding your life
You'll reach the empire of madness
I will be rife - driven by insanity or hate
Misguiding your life
You'll reach the empire of madness
I will be rife - driven by insanity or hate
 
 
Key to My Fate
Am I totally blind this time
As I'm dreaming the dreams that I fear
Some call it nightmare
And some call it life
What's the sense of existence here

And I think of the sadness
When I'm dreaming of leaving my pain
I don't get all the madness
But it drives me insane

Chorus

Now hear me cry
I'm in quest of the key to my fate
I might be nigh to the key
In the valley of hate - I don't know

Annihilation in my brain
What's the price that we will be to pay
When will you lift our poor little souls
Will you take us oh lord away

Oh when will we die
Why to suffer to stay upright
We are victims of our time
We have to fight till the end is in sight

Chorus

Now hear me cry
I'm in quest of the key to my fate
I might be nigh to the key
In the valley of hate - I don't know

Solo: Jens/ Jens, Dirk/ Jens

What's the reason to carry on
What's the reason to fall
After days of living hell
After we had to crawl

Are we totally blind this time
Can't you tell the nexus
Of freedom and pain
Desire and hate and even the holy one

Chorus

Now hear me cry
I'm in quest of the key to my fate
I might be nigh to the key
In the valley of hate

Now hear me cry
I'm in quest of the key to my fate
I might be nigh to the key
In the valley of hate
 
 
Sands of Time
Seasons come and seasons go
Here I wait for something to be
Try to get as much as I can see
Hungry for life
But have you seen the sands of time
Every day is a moment in past
Every heartbeat a step to my last
I won't survive

Don't know what time is meant to be
If it's my friend or enemy
Or does it only run, run to set an end
Secrets of a crazy dream
Or just a bad reality
I don't know

Do you feel the sands of time
Running low to break the line
First we learn to fly
Then we learn to cry
Later in the evening we may die

Questions roaming through my brain
I'll be leaving into my grave
I'll be dead, hope my soul will be safe
For a time, hope forever
All the seasons will have been gone
Time will come that you will forget
My name and all the words that I said
My time will be over

Don't know what time is meant to be
If it's my friend or enemy
Or does it only run, run to set an end
Secrets of a crazy dream
Or just a bad reality
I don't know

Do you feel the sands of time
Running low to break the line
First we learn to fly
Then we learn to cry
Later in the evening we may die

Do you feel the sands of time
Running low to break the line
Do you feel the sands of time
Running low to break the line
First we learn to fly
Then we learn to cry
Later in the evening we may die
 
 
Sacred Hell
Ravens in the air - no one in the streets
Seems like the fiend has come back
Riding on fire - scarlet's the sky
Love's slowly starting to crack

Whiplash and torture
Envy is driving our hate
The whole world around
Is mad and confused
The end has begun
We're facing our fate

Staring through eyes of hate we kill
Are we controlled or is it our own will
Don't use for brain
Don't look for a reason
Don't feel ashamed
While we put the blame on the demon

Chorus

Sacred hell - sacred hell
There's nothing but names on the wall
You can be free - you can face tomorrow
Sacred hell - sacred hell
Now the fiend must be back on our ball
Don't sow the sin - don't reap the sorrow

No lucid intervals
No good will to guide
Devil in disguise
End in damnation cause we only hide
Calling him to rise

Staring through eyes of hate we kill
Are we controlled or is it our own will
Don't use our brain
Don't look for a reason
Don't feel ashamed
Don't put the blame on the demon

Chorus

Sacred hell - sacred hell
There is nothing but names on the wall
You can be free - you can face tomorrow
Sacred hell - sacred hell
Now the fiend must be back on our ball
Don't sow the sin - don't reap the sorrow

Solo: Jens

Staring through eyes of hate we kill
Are we controlled or I it our own will
Don't use our brain
Don't look for a reason
Don't feel ashamed
While we put the blame on the demon

Chorus

Sacred hell - sacred hell
There is nothing but names on the wall
You can be free - you can face tomorrow
Sacred hell - sacred hell
Now the fiend must be back on our ball
Don't sow the sin - don't reap the sorrow
 
 
Eyes of the Tyrant
In the eyes of this might domain
And its evil doctrines
Can't feel the trace of romance
But fears that grow
No one can stare into his next one's eyes
We killed the poetry around
A long time ago

How many times have you given me rage
When your words were mendacious
And your laughter insane
How many times
Have you written lapoons
About my life and desire
About my pleasure and pain

I bare my fangs to you
Look at my face and you'll stare
Into my mind and you see

Chorus

Eyes of the tyrant
These are the eyes of the night

Back from the Hades
Into the daylight - No

Killing of all nights
Tell me what should I do
Should I die in glory
Should I raise my fist

The crime of my deeds
Is the frolic I need
I won't die on my knees
Gotta kill to resist
I bare my fangs to you
Look at my face and you'll stare
Into my mind and you see

Chorus

Eyes of the tyrant
These are the eyes of the night

Back from the Hades
Into the daylight - no

Solo: Jens

The chagrin of the damned
Cries the tears of romance
Lord of uprightness take me know
World of the sad
It's the world of the mad
My heart died so long ago

Solo: Jens

Yeah - we are eternal we are immortal
A trace of glory in our hands
Majestic and wild
We stand and we fight

Solo: Jens

Soon your blackened pride
Will be fading away
You'll realize
You'll have been walking astray
Never tame the wicked
I'm a tyrant tonight
Back from the Hades into the light

Solo: Jens / Dirk

Chorus

Back from the Hades into the
Eyes of the tyrant
These are the eyes of the night
 
 
Frozen Candle
Crying on the pyre
Feeling - oh - so strange
Once you took my mind to deteriorate
Told me that you like me
Atrocious and deterrent lies
Told me how it is to suffer hate

Celebrate my funeral
Vultures on my corpse
Ashes to ashes - me to hell
Want to bury me alive
But you've never known
You are too deaf to hear my forces yell

On your mind the creeping hate
You hold the link to seal my fate
I stare into the light
Fire burning brightly
Inquisition in our time
But I gotta tell you what I am

Chorus

Burning - I am burning
Yeah - burning like a frozen candle
Burning - I am burning
Yeah - burning like a frozen candle

I can still remember you
Coming with the reaper
How you tried to unlock my door

Sleepless nights - evil dreams
Faces in the window
Voices that I've never heard before

On your mind the creeping hate
You hold the link to seal my fate
I stare into the light
Fire burning brightly
Inquisition in our time
But I gotta tell you what I am

Chorus

Burning - I am burning
Yeah - burning like a frozen candle
Burning - I am burning
Yeah - burning like a frozen candle

Solo: Jens

Chorus

Burning - I am burning
Yeah - burning like a frozen candle
Burning - I am burning
Yeah - burning like a frozen candle

Burning - I am burning
Yeah - burning like a frozen candle
Burning - I am burning
Yeah - burning like a frozen candle
 
 
Roses to No One
I'm feeling this time
As bad as never before
A bleeding wag is fading away
Once you needed me
For spending delight
But below the funny mask
There's a crying face

The way that I smile is the way that I cry
But you'll never realize
My reputation is the one of a fool
Now watch how poet dies
Hear his cries

Chorus

And I dedicate my roses to no one
'Cause there is no mind to help me to see
The reason we need
A light for the lonesome
And no none to drink
The blood that I bleed

The poet inside - wasn't given a chance
So he had to live apart
And I realized - my best friend am I
And not those parasites
Who try to stare into my heart

The way that I feel is the way that I heal
My body and soul and my life
And I know you just think I'm a fool
Now watch how a poet flies, see me rise

Chorus

And I dedicate my roses to no one
'Cause there is no mind to help to see
The reason we need
A light for the lonesome
And no one to drink
The blood that I bleed

Solo: Jens

Chorus

And I dedicate my roses to no one
'Cause there's no mind to help me to see
The reason we need
A light for the lonesome
And no one to drink the blood that I bleed

And I dedicate my roses to no one
'Cause there's no mind to help me to see
The reason we need
A light for the lonesome
And no one to drink the blood that I bleed
 
 
Power And Majesty
I'm a sacred king in a sacred kingdom
You know me just as a royalty
Looking kind so you don't see
I'd like to steal your virginity

I was born to feign an angel
The evil knows just now to hide
I sold me soul to rise away
To build up powers you can't fight

So kind and noble till I wake the animal

Chorus

At night - we fly - we rise
We are power and majesty
At night - we fly - we rise
We are power and majesty

I'm a master of disguise
I hate to be your marionette
And I won't care if you'll be hanging
Shut... up - come in my bed

I'm a reckless animal
Spitting out a flood of lies
Till you know my perversity
Is to do it and do it and do it and die

Black suite and business,
Till I wake the animal

Chorus

At night - we fly - we rise
We are power and majesty
At night - we fly - we rise
We are power and majesty

Oh yeah

Rising high - higher and higher
Higher and higher we rise

Solo: Jens

Chorus

At night - we fly - we rise
We are power and majesty
At night - we fly - we rise
We are power and majesty

Scenery:
horny forester walks through a Bavarian forest at the foot of a mountain while he bumps into little Maria and little Margot.
Who are yodeling complacent coming back from picking berries successfully

At night - we fly - we rise
We are power and majesty
At night - we fly - we rise
We are power and majesty
