Majesty
Now the time has come for me to leave this land
Take my charge with pride sacrifice
Running and hiding I'm left for the time
To bring back the order of devine
Hunted by goblins no Gandalf to help
With swords in the night
Oh the last part of the game
Decision of death and life
Blood for Sauron they'll call tonight
The final battle cry
Running and hiding I'm left for the time
To bring back the order of devine
There exist no tales and hobbits are crying for all
Children of death
I have a dream the things you've to hide for
Deliver our kingdom and our reich
Don't fall in panic just give me the thing
That I need or I kill
Don't run away for what have I done

Ref.:
Oh majesty your kingdom is lost
And you'll leave us behind
Oh majesty your kingdom is lost
And ruins remind of your time
Now come back

(Solo)

Ref.
Run, run, run

Cries Cries in a dark land
Hear the voice it's cold as ice
Eyes they are watching
They look for me but cannot find
Creature is following no place to escape
My last steps will find the right way
Where's the future the call of the blind
Cause there is none to find
Watch the sky you see no light
My weapons burst with fear
With the howling wolves the nazgul will die
For all Children of death
Cries Cries in a dark land
Hear the voice it's cold as ice
Eyes they are watching
They look for me but cannot find
Run Run for the whole world
It's time you cannot wait
Lost Lost in a dark world
You feel the strange but cannot see
Too many battles we carry along from the war
And too many frightens we feel from his law
For so many victories we're praising so strong
For so many blood we've lost

Ref.
Run, run
 
 
Guardian of the Blind
Extermination thunder the strange one is back again
Lost by our only power it's aura will grind us out forever
Fall into a dark dream that we got once
The part it's real you won't believe
We're watching our own agony many years ago
Seven little children stand against the ghost
Believing is the answer but you've lost before
Find back to your infancy it's time to die
I've been the herdsman you've been my sheep
I find taste on lampskin everything's allright
Killing for the thirst for small children sweat
I give them illusions to raise their fear
Hear the crying dying child it's music to my ears
Feel the sweetness of it's death everything's allright
But there's a new feeling I've never known
There must be a third one a mighty guardian

Ref.:
Guardian, Guardian, Guardian of the Blind
Now it feel the curse of heaven
Guardian, Guardian, Guardian of the Blind
Now it feel the curse of the child

(Solo)

Dark is it's world, and lonely we're reaching it again
Fear our returning visions to madness we'll fall
If we can't kill the beast forever we must die now
One has blown his life away
Once we were a circle fighting hand in hand
Our weapons were illusions to let it feel the pain
By the sweet taste of our live it call us back again
We'll find the answer it's time to die
By a ritual we've hurt it but we've not kill
Little Billy you must find your way
Believe in you we ask for but where
We can never find
There must be a sign for the
Guardian of the Blind

Ref.:
Guardian, Guardian, Guardian of the Blind
Now it feel the curse of heaven
Guardian, Guardian, Guardian of the Blind
Now it feel the curse
Come to it's world following the sign
Guardian, Guardian, Guardian of the Blind
Give us the help we're waiting for your sign
Guardian, Guardian, Guardian of the Blind
 
 
Trial by the Archon
(Instrumental)
 
 
Wizard's Crown
Years ago I came back
This has been my hardest attack
A burning fire's in my brain
I could feel the deadly flame
Tales of the magic in my head
To a dark dream I fall in my mind
I hold the key of fortune
To feel the strange thing's in my mind
The stone of Ambar I must find
I'll take the chance that day

Ref.:
Halloween - The wizards crown I'll take on
Halloween
Halloween - But there is no return on Halloween

I'm the servant of the Blind to cross the realms of death
The gate is open wide you cannot close
His dungeons deep no place to hide
The times have changed he has to fight
In magic spell I fall
Illusions falling in my mind
But where's the key I cannot find
The ritual has begun

Ref.

(Solo)

The battle has begun
The warlocks time has come
I pay the price I've to pay
Why haven't see the signs
I'm loosing now my life
But cannot die forever life

Ref.:
Halloween - The wizards crown I'll take on
Halloween
Halloween - But there is no return on Halloween
Halloween - The wizards crown I'll take on
 
 
Run for the Night
There comes the last part and end of our old age
With thunder and lightning the dark lord is taking
The crown of the whole world
His creature will kill me and poisons my soul
To the end I'll fight but I know that the things
That I do are so meanless - Oh no

I see the hill but it's so far away
I know I can't reach it
But I try it again and again in my dark dreams
He's waysting my last will how long can I stay here
When the mightiest of all will now

Ref.:
Run for the Night burn away
The times of his fall I've to pay

Visions of darkness prepared for the last strike
And bloodlust their weapons and madness you see their
Eyes there's no way out
I'm lost in a dark dream and losing control
To the end I'll fight but I know that the things
That I do are so meanless - Oh no
I see the hill but it's so far away
I know I can't reach it
But try it again and again in my dark dreams
He's waysting my last will
How long can I stay here
Whe the mightiest of all will now

Ref.

You see them running in the shadows of the night
It is not what it used to be
They've been scared and they've been anxiously tonight
You them running with the wind they
Run for the night (3x)

(Solo)

Ref. (2x)
 
 
The Martyr
To take all our pain
The kingdom of heaven is near

The children of this time
Must die for his arrive
To let all the legends be true

The prophecy said they'll call king of the jews
He is born now to take all our sins
Three kings were searching for this holy child
The journey begins, he has to die

Lead: Andre

Bridge:
Healing the cripples and taking our pain
He came for the sinner
But what we have paid
Disciples are following
They are calling his words
Salt of the earth and light of the world

Refrain:
Martyr - we are following you bless us for eternity
Messiah - we are torturing you when you lose the power of your words

Jump from the temple and angel will save
Show me that you are the son of our God
Now take my land with my power you get
Rulin' the world of tomorrow
Now!

Lead: Andre

Messiah - Liar - Our burning desire
He is the king without a crown
We will set him to his throne
Give me 30 p. of silver and I'll be your man

Higher - Liar - The fallen Messiah
Let us see his agony
The things he done are blasphemy
Mob has lost their joy on toy so let us kill him fast

Now drink my blood for the new testament
This is my body you eat
One of you twelve is the one who betrays
Better that he's never born

Judas you're the chosen one
The world has damned your name
No!

Lead: Andre

Bridge:
Begin with a kiss at a cross it will end
The kingdom of heaven we've passed
The sky will turn black and the curtain will fall
The father is crying for his son
The tortured Messiah is finding his way
The journey has come to the end
The twelve ones are preaching the words he had left
They're changing the way of the world but die for

Solo: Marcus

Refrain:
Martyr - we are following you bless us for eternity
Messiah - we are torturing you when you lose the power of your words
Martyr - we are following you bless us for eternity
No!
 
 
Battalions of Fear
That happens in the state
By a mortal distance that I can't believe

Self destructive infernal
To save us from the breed
But I know that it is all a lie

Star wars begin now
His bombs come exploding
To bring back the death of the night

No mercy he's knowing
How strong he must show us
For the last film you all get a part

Be by my side
Or you have to die
Believe what I do is the right

Lead: Andre

Soon Armageddon
Last hours are running now
The final solution begins

The words of a madman
No children to tell them
For what they will not see the light

Choose by your voice
He kills and destroys
At the end you must die for the night

In earlier chess games we're playing the part of a soldier
But now we are not qualified to save our own life

The traps are all placed by command they are ready to strike, yeah
We live and we will die by the lies, a lies to believe

Lead: Andre

Bridge:
Try to escape from this suicide dreams
Or past time will come back again
Hiroshima is a joke to that what will come
At the end of the game we all die
Die now

Refrain:
Battalions of fear
They search and they scream for the American dreams
Battalions of fear
The way of R.R. to show he is the star
Battalions

Solo: Andre

Star wars begin now
His bombs come exploding
To bring back the death of the night

No mercy he's knowing
How strong he must show us
For the last film you all get a part

Be by my side
Or you have to die
Believe what I do is the right

Solo: Marcus

With hands full of blood
He talks about peace
With snake poisoning tongue
He's praying

El Salvador and Vietnam
You soon fast forget
But you satisfy on Afghanistan

You've been the master
You kill with a laughter
Your screams of peace are wrong and loud
Cause so we are and here we are

We scream and shout!

Your laughing about all the fools

Scream and shout!

With power of evil they stand

Lead: Andre

Bridge:
Try to escape from this suicide dreams
Or past time will come back again
Hiroshima is a joke to that what will come
At the end of the game we all die
Die now

Refrain:
Battalions of fear
They search and they scream for the American dreams
Battalions of fear
The way of R.R. to show he is the star
Battalions of fear
The way of R.R. to show he is the star
Battalions
Battalions
 
 
By the Gates of Moria
(Instrumental)
 
 
Gandalf's Rebirth
(Instrumental)
 
 
Brian
When the sky is burning,
See the moon falling down.
On your right is lightning.
See the war in the sky.

Remember Brian,
When it's time.
Remember Brian.

Guitar solo

All our empty heads
Discover the war in the sky.
Don't need no revolution
By the birthday of Brian.

Remember Brian,
When it's time.
Remember Brian.

When the end is nearing,
See him hanging on the cross.
A war in the sky
Now by the ending of Brian.

Remember Brian,
When it's time.
Remember Brian.
 
 
Halloween
Years ago I came back.
This'll be my hardest attack.
Burning fire in my brain.
I can feel the deadly flame.

You'll never make it, your blood I suck.
Your fire's burning round my neck.
Celebration, let the day.

Hunting me down, there's no escape.
There's no way out, but trying to escape.
You're just insane, can't catch me.

Halloween, I'm sent to hear his voice on Halloween.
Halloween, can feel the Kiss of Death on Halloween.

When you feel the Kiss of Death,
there's nothing you can do.
An angel sent me to destroy and kill.
Yeah.

You see the X, but it's too late.
It's in your head and you are dead.
There's no way out, they tell us.

Can feel the Kiss of Death.
There's nothing in my head but blood.

Halloween, I'm sent to hear his voice on Halloween.
Halloween, can feel the Kiss of Death on Halloween.

Guitar solo

This gaining dawn I feel.
Just tell me how this is real.
Is it the end of me and you?
Can feel the Kiss of Death.
There's nothing in my head but blood.

Halloween, I'm sent to hear his voice on Halloween.
Halloween, can feel the Kiss of Death on Halloween.
Halloween, I'm sent to hear his voice on Halloween.
 
 
Lucifer's Heritage
(Instrumental)
 
 
Symphonies of Doom
Hansi:
In the dark night (they) defend their missiles,
Where it's the night we all die.
Enthralling power, who searches to be masters.
They play their game with your life.
The burning fire comes around, the heat is on
Just for this day, it's all sad blues.

Marcus:
The East Sun is burning hard.
See, your life is short.
See the rainbow in the mirror.
See the rainbow in the sky.
See the desert in front of you.
See the desert of life.

Standing in the cold rain, waiting for the end.
See the shadows of the night.
I have told you, but now it is too late.
These are Symphonies of Doom.

Hansi:
Feel the danger, this final battle.
It will imply us all God's agony.
The endless blitzes just blind your eyes shut
And blow your life out to nothingness.
Black shadows storming in the East, but you can't see.
The liec has set that power free.

Guitar solo

Marcus:
The East Sun is burning hard.
See, the life is short.
See the rainbow in the mirror.
See the rainbow in the sky.
See the desert in front of you.
See the desert of life.

I'm no sinner. I'm no fool.
I have heard these chants before.
I have told you, but now it is too late.
These are Symphonies of Doom.
 
 
Dead of the Night
Every night I hear thunder.
The shadow, can't you see?
So one night I will follow.
The dark side reigns in me.

(He) leads me to the dark plains.
The end is near, I feel.
But (I've) never seen his damned face.
My hearts pound hard in fear.

Dead of the night, take me away.
Dead of the night, he's looking for you.

A hundred solemn faces,
They look at me and laugh.
But if one wants to touch them,
They glow through nothingness.

If I come to tell you,
You look at me and laugh.
I never found the doctor,
So one day I'll be mad.

In that night I follow.
No pain, no work, no more.
He leads me on through the dark realm.
My sense grows far too dense.

Guitar solo

Dead of the night, take me away.
Dead of the night, he's looking for you.

They will not take me easy.
No love will come through death.
I take them on and kill myself.
And just feel emptiness.

Now you see them rising,
But no one knows but me.
So, don't try (to) follow a demon
And wait for a last attack.

In that night I follow.
No pain, no work, no more.
He leads me on through the dark realm.
My sense grows far too dense.

Dead of the night, take me away.
Dead of the night, he's looking for you.
Dead of the night.
