Dark Saga
The deal was rigged
There's darkness in my soul
I want to die again

An empty soul shrouded in darkness
Alone and confused what am I?
Images flash memories jaded
He took my life God damn his lies

Fight spawn of the damned, bring down the heavens
Smash in the gates, burn'em down
You must accept the fate that you've chosen
You will obey your destiny

Chorus
I cheated myself for love
Love unconditional
Now just to see her face
I've lost it all

Bridge
I know there's goodness in me
Though I'm not the same
I will defy the master
I will refuse to be his slave

No, I was betrayed I can't accept this
My future's unclear, it's a lie
I'll follow my heart stand and be counted
The curse will lift I will survive

Repeat Chorus
 
 
I Died for You
I can't believe this now
This isn't what I planned
I lived and died and now
I just can't understand
With all the love I feel
I could never leave her
No matter what the cost
My soulds the price to see her

Chorus
Oh how I love you
The pain won't go away
Oh when I need you
You're always so far away
I cry for you
Leaving myself to blame
I died for you
I gave up everything

The pain was just to much
When I finally saw her
She's happy and in love
In love with my best friend
What makes it hurt so bad
Is that I love them both
And they will never know
For love I sold my soul

Repeat Chorus
 
 
Violate
Enter now the fiendish one
Twisted little man
Vile wretch disgusting mess
Perverted little man
Born of hell and in disease
Hate festers in his veins
Demonic clown and shape shifter
Little man gone insane

Enter now
Enter now
And violate

I'll beat you with your spinal cord
Split your skull in two
I'll feast on your intestines
There's nothing I can't do
I'll rip your heart out of your chest
Watch it beat as you cry
I revel in your agony
I violate and make you die

Enter now
Enter now
And violate
 
 
The Hunter
A force of light an angel
Sent through time to destroy
Avenging the dark ones
Descending angelic force

Heaven sent the hunter
Her mission to crucify
Slay the hellspawn
His offspring demonic force

Chorus
Descending from heaven
The angel sworn to bring him down
The hunter the thunder
The wrath of heavens comin' down

She swore an oath, an allegiance
Armageddon is in sight
To be the thorn in the devils back
To make him weak, the final fight

Repeat Chorus
 
 
The Last Laugh
My personal quest is to make your life hell
Yes dear friend listen up well
The power I've given I can take as well
I am your father destroyer of the light
I've taken your soul and have given you life
You are the damned condemned by my hand
My son creature of the night
In your hour of darkness
You warm my soul
And deep in you as I make my hole
God won't save you
Your souls been sold
I am your father destroyer of the light
I've taken your soul and have given you life
You are the damned condemned by my hand
My son creature of the night
Extending, now you rise
Tormented, soul of fire
Deception, in my eyes
Your life, your life is mine
My new born son burn now with anger
I command and you must follow
Fly now and do battle
The heavens fall, mankind's disaster
In your hour of darkness
You warm my soul
God won't save you
Your souls been sold
I am your father destroyer of the light
I've taken your soul and have given you life
You are the damned condemned by my hand
My son creature of the night
Extending, now you rise
Tormented, soul of fire
Deception, in my eyes
Your life, your life is mine
 
 
Depths of Hell
Angels coming from above
Take the essence of his love
Challengers call him from all around
Demons coming from the ground

Battles won and nothing gained
Feel the pain
Feel the shock
From the depths of hell

Darkness dwelling in his soul
True damnation no control
Shattered pieces of his past
Broken dreams among the dead

When the smoke clears he will arise
Feel the pain
Feel the shock
From the depths of hell
 
 
Vengeance Is Mine
Hear now this story of the man that should not be
A ghoul of blackened torment, sullen atrocity
A kindred soul to the devils own, malignance personified
Cast from his fire he molests the purest light

Profaner to humanity menaced by flesh and bone
Screams of the unknown youth to him the sweetest tone
Undying in his will to kill his bloodlust is profound
For the blood of the lamb I've got to bring him down

Chorus
For all the young lives you have slain
Fear now you shall obtain
Vengeance is mine
For every young one that has died
Your psychopathic genocide
Vengeance is mine

I shall do what the law won't do, I can make the sacrifice
In the names of these bodies which held such precious life
Mine is not to ask forgiveness this deed I've proudly done
Without god without the devil this time I have won
 
 
Scarred
Darkness calls down to me
Sweat pours from my body like rain
Growing wiser with each touch
A pawn in Lucifer's game, am I?

It attacks me in the black abyss
The entity formless yet full of rage
The mark of the beast my body
Scarring me for eternal life

Chorus
I brought this all upon myself
Sold my soul to change my life
It's up to me and no one else
The beast in me can't control my life

I brought this all upon myself
Sold my soul to change my life
It's up to me and no one else
The beast in me can't control me

Bridge
And so it's begun, this is the end of me
The seed was sewn now it's growing inside
My fate in control, not mine
He lied

Chorus
I brought this all upon myself
Sold my soul to change my life
It's up to me and no one else
The beast in me can't control my life

I brought this all upon myself
Sold my soul to change my life
It's up to me and no one else
The beast in me won't control me
 
 
Slave to the Dark
A twisted state of mind, torn between two worlds
One of which the new me hates and the one that's coming true
The power is unleashed, they perish at my gaze
But am I really in control or am I just a slave

I called upon this god to deliver unto me
To grant what I desire he brought me to my knees
He turned his back on me and filled me with his lies
Ask and I received damnation was the price

I signed my name in blood, didn't read the fine prints
Now I'm just a puppet god for the devils own descent
Bound and shackled here forever damned a slave
Fallen bloody tears can't wash the pain away

Chorus
All at once it's clear to me
Damnation and destiny
A slave to darkness shall I be
Damnation and destiny

And so I must repent or will I be destroyed
Will the one that lives in me release me from this lie
And will the wrath of god have mercy on my soul
Or humiliate me, desecrate me, like his only son

Repeat Chorus
 
 
A Question of Heaven
The time is close now, the end is near
My walk through the valley, trails of fear
I feel empty, my penance overdue,
I guess it's too late now to be with you
I'm extremely frightened of what will surely be
I sold myself, the death of me
I know you can't forgive me I know I'm on my own,
I've betrayed you I walk alone

What exactly is the meaning of this
Just pawns in your twisted game
Severe pain for the lie I'm livin'
For a love I never could betray

Bridge
Question me not say the lord unto thee
You have chosen your own fate and your own destiny
Denied of this life is what you are to be
You have chosen your own fate and your own destiny

Lord I pound my fists at you
Won't you just let me die
Would I not suffer enough
No inner peace no after life

Repeat Bridge

I did what I thought was right
All for the love of my life
I know it's sad but true
Something is very wrong
Condemned to suffer so long
For a love so true

The question that lies within
Is so hard to understand
It still tears at me
And in my dying breath
My heart holds no regrets
I wouldn't change a thing

My spirit begins to rise to the heavenly skies
Just to be shunned away by you
Now all I want is to die, no streets of gold in the sky
And I wash my hands of you

Bridge
Rising to the heaven's light
Just to plead for death
Just to be denied

Rising to the heaven's light
Just to plead for death
Just to be denied

Ooohhh, I know you can't forgive me
I know I'm on my own
I know that I've betrayed you
You know I walk alone
You know I walk alone

I walk, I walk the trail of fear
I pound my fists at you
I'm shunned away by you
I wash my hands of you

Why won't you let me die
Why won't you let me die
Why won't you let me die
 
 
The Ripper
(by Judas Priest.)
You're in for surprise
You're in for a shock
In London town streets
When there's darkness and fog
When you least expect me
And you turn your back
I'll attack

I smile when I'm sneaking
Through shadows by the wall
I laugh when I'm creeping
But you won't hear me at all

All hear my warning
Never turn your back
On the ripper

You'll soon shake with fear
Never knowing if I'm near
I'm sly and I'm shameless
Nocturnal and nameless
Except for 'The Ripper'
Or if you like 'Jack The Knife'

Any back alley street
Is where we'll probably meet
Underneath a gas lamp
Where the air's cold and damp
I'm a nasty surprise
I'm a devil in disguise
I'm a footstep at night
I'm a scream of the fright

All hear my warning
Never turn your back
On the ripper... the ripper... the ripper
