Rage - 10 Years in Rage

back to Rage discography

Rage'1994

10 Years in RageRelease by: Noise Records

Rage - 10 Years in Rage
The length can be different in the booklet, in the player and on the different disks.
1. Vertigo
    (This is an absolute smasher that I'd totally forgotten. Maybe it should have appeared on "Reign of fear". No compromise - bang it out!)

(03:34)

2. She Killed And Smiled
    (There was an "Avenger" song called "Stay wild" in 1985. After a major rearrangement and with different words it sounds like this.)

(04:03)

3. Destination Day
    (There was a totally different version of this on our first "Avenger" demo in 1983, in fact only the chorus remains...)

(05:08)

4. Take My Blood
    (Chris and I wrote this three years ago during a session. I'm happy that we recorded our shit then and that we found the tape to make this one out of it - a real killer.)

(04:16)

5. No Sign of Life
    (During the sessions for "Missing Link" we wrote an instrumental song on this somber theme. It's finished now. The words were written at the beginning of the Yugoslavian war.)

(07:27)

6. Submission
    (This is something that we worked on for "Execution guaranteed" in 1986, somehow we forgot all about it.)

(03:49)

7. The Unknown
    (I wrote this one in 1988 during a tour - which is probably why I forgot about it. (On tour you can never remember what happened from one day to the next!))

(04:44)

8. Dangerous Heritage
    (This was the result of drink-and-play session with Chris' brother Spiros. It was funny listening to the tape - you couldn't recognize the original shit from the finished song. )

(04:09)

9. Prayers of Steel'94
    (The title track of my first album that I recorded with Avenger in 1984. I've changed some words for this version. You find all former members playing here. The drum take is done by Jorg, the lead breaks by Alf, Jochen, Manni, Guinness and Rudy.)

(06:08)

10. The Blow in a Row
    (Hidden competition time! Try to find out which songs are included in this. There are bits and pieces from every album from "Reign of Fear" right up to "The missing link".)

(07:48)

Bonus(es):
11. Brainsucker
    (The lyrics of this bonus track was passed us by Pavel Shaptsev (editor@rage-online.ru))

Vertigo
(This is an absolute smasher that I'd totally forgotten. Maybe it should have appeared on "Reign of fear". No compromise - bang it out!)
Look into my eyes and sink deeper
Look into my eyes,
Drown into my will like a sleeper,
Drown into my eyes.
Now you feel as light as a feather,
Leave it all behind.
Strip your mind of all that encaged you,
Forget about the time.

And from the first sight to the last
The world is tumbling into vertigo.

I can lead you, ways to explore you,
Ways you'd never find.
I can make you mine if I want to,
You'd make up my mind.
Feel these healing hands,
Eyes of fire, magic pendulum
Makes you dizzy at first sight,
Now my time has come.

And from the first sight to the last
The world is tumbling into vertigo.

Oh, something touched you deep inside
Oh, take hold of a distant light
Oh, hypnotised, feels like vertigo
 
 
She Killed And Smiled
(There was an "Avenger" song called "Stay wild" in 1985. After a major rearrangement and with different words it sounds like this.)
All the years we joined our lives
We did never regret
Our decisions and the way
That we kept our heads.

When I needed you the most,
In my hour of pain,
I awoke the rudest way
My belief was in vain.

In you, as I tell you weren't there
Didn't catch my fall, oh no,
Now you've killed all I had.

She killed and smiled
She killed and smiled
What a beautiful death you brought, my child.

Wrath is burning in my mind,
Why can't you take it back.
No excuses, no regrets,
You just broke my back.

Oh, you turned your back, shut your mouth
Didn't had a word of trust (love)
Now you've killed all I had.

She killed and smiled
She killed and smiled
What a beautiful death you brought, my child!
 
 
Destination Day
(There was a totally different version of this on our first "Avenger" demo in 1983, in fact only the chorus remains...)
Read in the bible what's written there'll one
Day come true 'bout the end of the world an
All life and all things that we knew.
The reaper is sharpening his scythe,
This is the end of your body
And day will be night.

The sun will fade its light away
The good will go, the bad must stay.

On the destination day
When all life is blown away
On the destination day
There is no more use in praying.

Nuclear power will soon
Bring all mankind to fall
They destroy all their land just for cash
And they don't care at all.
Ashes to ashes dust to dust
Your body is covered with lava,
Torn up from earth's crust.

The sea will overflow the land
And you will die then hand in hand

On the destination day
When all life is blown away
On the destination day
When all life is blown away
On the destination day
There is no more use in praying.
 
 
Take My Blood
(Chris and I wrote this three years ago during a session. I'm happy that we recorded our shit then and that we found the tape to make this one out of it - a real killer.)
People talked about this man
That he could walk on water and
That he would be a healer who could
Make the blind ones see again

He never told 'em lies,
Though he took them by surprise:
"I'll offer you the truth, so you can

Take my blood, believe or not
And you'll see, the word is me"
He did the only thing he knew
But what, the fuck, was he supposed to do?

People talked about this man
That he'd be the messiah and
He told them to feel love but they
Just nailed him the cross instead.

He wasn't real surprised
'Cause he unmasked their lies.
"I'll offer you the truth, so you can

Take my blood, believe or not
And you'll see, the word is me.
Take my blood, I'm not a god
And you'll see, it's only me."

He was the very first to prove
The world's too blind to see the truth,
He did the only thing he knew
But what, the fuck, was he supposed to do?

People wrote about this man
'Most every single word and then
They founded a church and made their law
In his name they still slay the poor

They only tell you lies,
It would take him by surprise.
"I'll offer you the truth, so you can

Take my blood, believe or not
And you'll see, the word is me.
Take my blood, I'm not a god
And you'll see, it's only me."

He was the very first to prove
The world's too blind to see the truth.
He did the only thing he knew,
You know, the fuck,
What you're supposed to do!
 
 
No Sign of Life
(During the sessions for "Missing Link" we wrote an instrumental song on this somber theme. It's finished now. The words were written at the beginning of the Yugoslavian war.)
Oh Lord Jesus, come down from your cross
See what's going on, see what's going on.
And meanwhile your land is getting lost,
Take your brother home, he is dead and gone.

The house is burning, man stopped turning
Compromising, paralysing, what a drag

He had held his hand wide open
But his neighbor left it out
Long forgotten wounds break open
I can't help you watching out
I have seen no sign of life

Hey, you soldier, spare your sister's life
Don't turn out the light, don't you be afraid.
Don't leave this land mine here in our street
This is not a job, killing people's not a job.

Man is burning, world stopped turning
Terrorizing, compromising not at all.

He had held his hand wide open
But his neighbour left it out
Long forgotten wounds break open
I can't help you watching out
I have seen no sign of life
 
 
Submission
(This is something that we worked on for "Execution guaranteed" in 1986, somehow we forgot all about it.)
Shoot down the helpless - that's nothing new
But I ain't gonna be oppressed by you
Mister ruler - you bathe in blood
But you won't get mine, I swear by god.

See all this dying
Hear all this crying

Submission

Why do you wonna be always right
There' no other way but to be on your side
But there ain't no way to wipe out free will
It'll keep on growing when you try to kill it

I won't surrender
Return to sender

Submission

Throw me in the dungeons
You won't get me down - no you won't
Call me what you want now
I will get revenge - sweet revenge

No, you won't get me
See what you've set free

Submission
 
 
The Unknown
(I wrote this one in 1988 during a tour - which is probably why I forgot about it. (On tour you can never remember what happened from one day to the next!))
People running same old ways.
See, tradition rules this place
Though it may be sometimes good I say
Mostly there is no real sense
Maybe a kind of sentimentality
The reason's lost so long ago.

I don't want to be l
Like my mind's not free
No, I'll choose the new and unknown

No way out, no way to run
Oh, from the unknown

Everything's in constant change
Try to build your mental range
If you want to grow and reach your size
Fear has killed what reason bore
A policy that keeps you torn
But security's not all that counts

I don't want to be
Like my mind's not free.
No, I'll choose the new and unknown

No way out, no way to run
Oh, from the unknown

A hundred times it passed me by
A hundred times I felt alive
 
 
Dangerous Heritage
(This was the result of drink-and-play session with Chris' brother Spiros. It was funny listening to the tape - you couldn't recognize the original shit from the finished song. )
A dangerous heritage they've left behind
For us, so we meet our death before time
For our children, they can take the rest
But there's not much
That we've saved in the past.
Take these conditions, the memories fade
Choose a position between love and hate.
Alternate lifestyle - a wish to escape
Travel this planet before it's too late.

Where do we go? Who want's to know?

Dangerous heritage - failures strike back
On your deathbed feel the grip 'round your neck
Dangerous heritage - you can't disclaim
Curse it whenever it hammers your brain

A dangerous heritage they've left behind
For us so we'll find no peace for all time
Talking and talking but then speaks the gun
Until the most senseless battle is won.
When people' nation counts more
Than their lives
Then something's wrong
In their heads for all time
We transfer our views from father to son
Ain't it our choice to wipe out what is wrong?

Where are we now? Who want's to know?

Dangerous heritage - failures strike back
On your deathbed feel the grip 'round your neck
Dangerous heritage - you can't disclaim
Curse it whenever it hammers your brain
 
 
Prayers of Steel'94
(The title track of my first album that I recorded with Avenger in 1984. I've changed some words for this version. You find all former members playing here. The drum take is done by Jorg, the lead breaks by Alf, Jochen, Manni, Guinness and Rudy.)
Lay me on an anvil, oh lord
And forge me in a crowbar
Let me pry young virgin souls
Give 'em strength somehow

Lay me on an anvil, oh lord
And forge me in a spike
Drive me in the wasted hearts
To straighten out their lifes

Let me be your weapon, oh lord
Fight for truth real hard
Let me roar with all your force
Fight for you and guard

Let me be your clearest spirit
Hold your temple high
From the darkest souls, so deep
To the blackest night

All your wisdom give me, oh lord
Teach me prayers of steel
Give me strength and give me power
Give me prayers of steel
 
 
The Blow in a Row
(Hidden competition time! Try to find out which songs are included in this. There are bits and pieces from every album from "Reign of Fear" right up to "The missing link".)
(Medley)
 
 
Brainsucker
(The lyrics of this bonus track was passed us by Pavel Shaptsev (editor@rage-online.ru))
This is more of a joke than anything else
I wrote it for a certain event in 87
Just raw!

You keep tellin' all the world
You've got the motor running
You'd better wash your socks
They smell like death
You keep running 'round
And sell the people little dreams
Why don't you shut up now
You drive me mad

Brainsucker

You've stolen all your money
And you've stolen all our minds
Watch out, soon you'll get the hammer back
Ain't no place around for "bullshit man dirt" like you are
Come on man, I'll bang your head instead
Brainsucker
