The Rivalry
Since all time began the holy council guards the light
They saw dawn of man, made by gods to serve their pride
Their slave, he fell from grace, he became the renegede
But evilness took place, cause a darkend force lurked in the shade

Silent wings of black, shadowed all the good at heart
The snake on the attack, shot to bite right oof the dark
The poison in their vein, freezed their soul, their heart, their mind
So they praised the evil's name, the beast to serve, the world to grind

Time of all eternity, can never change the final destiny
The purified that stood the fight, will be saved to see the world of light.

The Rivalry, since eternity, the final fight the blackend world to free
Lost in hate, determined fate, all evil's damned to walk the fiery gate

The time is right at hand, to see the truth behind the lie
Decade of evils end, the poisoned heart is doomed to die
The chosen one is here, they're in a deadly fix
He is the one they fear, cause he is up to all their tricks

Pre...

Chorus...
 
 
Ballad of William Kidd
(Dedicated to the memory of William Kidd.)
He was born at the shore of Greennock in the year 1645
Ran away at the age of fourteen, to flee from his soul-killing life
He signed on to sail the wild-winds
But he worked down his hands and hes knees
He stood his test on the waters, so they said: "He was bred to the sea"

In 1697, the "Adventure..." was setting its sails
With the letter of marque and reprisal, Kidd was prepared for his trail
They sailed the sea with the mission, to hunt down "Tew" and "Long Ben"
A serious riot was rising, so Kidd struck down one of his men
And he died!

Blue-blooded men they fell from grace
Piranhas cating their own
They sacrificed at the altar of lies
So fate took its course in the ballad of William Kidd

The "Adventure..." returned to her hometown, Kidd was forced to defence
They charged him with looting and murder his patrons and generous friends
He'd left his crew at St. Thomas, to guard his honour from shame
But the lords they lied like a trooper, not to lose their own heads in the game

Pre + Chorus...

The lords testified, their unholy lies, t osave their own heads from the gallows
They sacrificed Kidd, they took him for a ride, that conspiratorial fellows

They judged him and they found him guilty of piracy of the high seas
Betraying men of honour, you know lie and cheat as they please
A case of indicial murder caused the death of a seafaring man
Slanderous bunch of liars, to hell your souls will be damned

Blue-blooded men they fell from grace
Piranhas cating their own
They sacrificed at the altar of lies
So fate took its pertentous course. What a shame!
In the ballad of William Kidd
 
 
Fire And Thunder
Enchanted times, the decade of falling
But noone thinks of catastrophe
Seductive voice of death is calling
The fall of man is just plain to see
The mighty reign of devastation
Is raging wild allthrough the land
Sowing the winds of desperation
A deadly breeze by the Serpents hand

Darkest night, pride and hate
Raging force, the fate

Fire & Thunder, war & pain
Fire & Thunder, the devil's reign

The lost child is breathing badness
Building bombs just to serve his pride
Technological wings of madness
Could bring the end, eternal night

Pre...

Chorus...

The souls melt in the fire of distress
The world's caught in a deadly trance
The flames of hell their reign is endless
No way out, no more second chance

Darkest night, pride and hate
Raging force, the wings of fate

Fire & Thunder, war & pain
Fire & Thunder, the devil's reign
Fire & Thunder, the final fight
Fire & Thunder, eternal night
 
 
War And Peace
(Inspired by the novel "War & peace" by Leo Tolstoi.)
The rifles are firing, the cracking of guns break the still
The march of the soldiers, no mercy, no thoughts, and no will

They fall one by one, their blood is shed without sense
Trapped in the spell of a nightmare

War & peace, you're walking just straight on the edge
War & peace, you're dying in war, but you even can't live in peace

You gun down your victim and the devil is laughing in scorn
You're killing your brother, cause he's wearing the wrong uniform

Pre

Chorus

The essence of all evil is living on madness and hate
So see and take over, to rule the key to your fate

Pre

Chorus
