Chamber of Lies
(Instrumental)
 
 
Whirlwind
Thundering foam that hits the keel, like powder blazed by flints
The figure - head is riding high with his face right to the wind
The hull that creaks in every joint is hammering the sea
Determined it will ride the main, it will last eternally

It rips the wild and stormy sea like a heavy charge of pride
Hook and eye are moved by storm, the ropes are holding tight
The rudder's beating left and right, the ship's in seasaw motion
The proudness of a majesty is banning all devotion

Like a whirlwind, rushing over the sea
Like a whirlwind, blowing fast, blowing free
Like a whirlwind, a raving storm in the night
Like a whirlwind, going mad going wild.

Thundering foam that hits the keel, like powder blazed by flints
The figure - head is riding high with his face right to the wind
The hull that creaks in every joint is hammering the sea
Determined it will ride the main, it will last eternally

Like a whirlwind, rushing over the sea
Like a whirlwind, blowing fast. blowing free
Like a whirlwind, a raving storm in the night
Like a whirlwind, going mad, going wild
Like a whirlwind
Like a whirlwind
Like a whirlwind
Like a whirlwind
 
 
Sinister Eyes
A blue and blinding light is devouring the dark
Someone must be there, it's no fancy and no lark
Footsteps trail my moves I turn around and no one's there
Phantom hands that touch my back, a pungent smell is in the air

Black-eyed visitors talk to me at night
Revealing the truth

Sinister eyes
Deciphering the prophecy
Sinister eyes
Warning of catastrophe

Muddled hours are still lost, a weird nodule at my neck
Curious voice that talks to me, piercing eyes that hit my back
A dream crawls through my sleep, a small and greyskinned seer
He talks about the universe, I feel I've known him for a hundred years

Black-eyed visitors talk to me at night
Revealing the truth

Sinister eyes
Deciphering the prophecy
Sinister eyes
Warning of the catastrophe

You wonder why there's no contact, the man of science twist the truth
Politicans telling lies, these criminals have to lose
2000 years of blood and death, no money will ever change the fate
Army, church and government, can't you feel their scornful hate?

Black-eyed visitors talk to me at night
Revealing the truth

Sinister eyes
Deciphering the prophecy
Sinister eyes
Warning of the catastrophe
 
(Sinister Eyes is based on the stories "Communion" and "Transformation" by Whitley Strieber.)
 
 
Black Wings of Death
The churchbell of doom is tolling, the angel of death is near
The ghost with the cowl and the sickle, spreading terror and fear

He's taking your breath, he's twisting your spine
He poisons your soul and he poisons your mind

Grim reaper will gather in his seed, blood will splatter his path
A phantom that's sealing your doom, the damned's foreboding of death

He's taking your breath, he's twisting your spine
He poisons your soul and he poisons your mind

Riding high on the black wings of death
Like a nightmare that's choking your breath
Like the terror that blackens your soul
It's the dream where you fall in a six foot deep hole

The dices of life are falling, the weak and the poor will lose
The rich in their ivory towers can't feel that their head's in the noose
No chance to talk him round, the black death is spreading its wings
He's the Jonah of unbridled fear, the pain to beggars and kings
He taking their breath, he's twisting their spine
He poisons their soul and he poisons their mind

Riding high on the black wings of death
Like a nightmare that's choking your breath
Like the terror that blackens your soul
It's the dream where you fall in a six foot deep hole

Riding high on the black wings of death
Like a nightmare that's choking your breath
Like the terror that blackens your soul
It's the dream where you fall in a six foot deep hole
 
 
Fistful of Dynamite
Heedless they make their pile
Freeloading monkeys on our backs
Bad to the bone and spineless
A dirty, lying, riotous pack

Ostrich policy, wrong way
Don't fall asleep or you'll have to pay
Draconian penalty, right way
Ready to explode

Like a fistful of dynamite, my fuse is burning fast
Like a fistful of dynamite, a bomb heading for your ass
Like a fistful of dynamite, my fuse is running short
Like a fistful of dynamite, don't push too far or we will be your court

They drain us of our lifeblood
But we are dredging up the truth
Staunch as a steely dreadnought
So they'll never stir up our ruth

Ostrich policy, wrong way
Don't fall asleep or you'll have to pay
Draconian penalty, right way
Ready to explode

Like a fistful of dynamite, my fuse is burning fast
Like a fistful of dynamite, a bomb heading for your ass
Like a fistful of dynamite, my fuse is running short
Like a fistful of dynamite, don't push too far or we will be your court

Don't push too far, we're fed up wit your tricks
Yes, fear our law, you will get your deserved kicks

Ostrich policy, wrong way
Don't fall asleep or you'll have to pay
Draconian penalty, right way
Ready to explode

Like a fistful of dynamite, my fuse is burning fast
Like a fistful of dynamite, a bomb heading for your ass
Like a fistful of dynamite, my fuse is running short
Like a fistful of dynamite, don't push too far or we will be your court
 
 
Roaring Thunder
You'll rule the world, but we don't care
You don't impress whatever you dare
We hate your vileness, enough of your lies
Flame to our anger, you'll pay the price

Your fate is sealed without a doubt
Verdict guilty, no way out
Trick or treat is what they play
The hand of doom will have its way.

Roaring thunder, the hearts of men your five-star metal
Roaring thunder, you wrecked the car, so hands off the wheel

You pollute the world, with your snaketalk tongue
We'll never give up, until your're gone
You squeeze us out, you rape the earth
Pour recklessness, there's nothing worse

Your fate is sealed without a doubt
Verdict guilty, no way out
Trick or treat is what they play
The hand of doom will have its way.

Roaring thunder, the hearts of men your five-star metal
Roaring thunder, you wrecked the car, so hands off the wheel

Predaciousness, to fill up your lair
We know the truth, tho' you're not aware
A darkened power grabs your throat
No time for mercy, 'cause you've sunk the boat

Your fate is sealed without a doubt
Verdict guilty, no way out
Trick or treat is what they play
The hand of doom will have its way.
Roaring thunder, the hearts of men your five-star metal
Roaring thunder, you wrecked the car, so hands off the wheel
Roaring thunder, lightning strikes when the youth stands tight
Roaring thunder, fist up high show no respite
 
 
Pile of Skulls
Hey Mr. Pope, Mr. Military Man
Kings and Queens
More evil than it seems
You lie, you cheat, you betray, you kill all the way
You wade through blood in your boots of steel
You hide the truth from its reveal
The world's bleeding wounds will never heal

So look in the mirror and see who you are
You made our lives an abbatoir
A man - eating machine, that's what you are
Pile of skulls, conspiracy
Beware of the revealing key
No dance of joy, no harmless spree
No chance for you to hide or flee

Liar's tongue, tricks of deepest dye
Snake-skinned pack, you're evil and you're sly
Injust, you hunt, you hate, you take all the way
You're cutting throats with poisoned blades
Your recklessness overflows the graves
You try to make us all your slaves

So look in the mirror and see who you are
You made our lives an abbatoir
A man-eating machine, that's what you are

Pile of skulls, conspiracy
Beware of the revealing key
No dance of joy, no harmless spree
No chance for you to hide and flee

Tears and pain, never ending shame
Bloodsucking lice play their evil game
Your doom is sealed, the truth revealed all the way
Headless you still run around
You can't believe you're losing ground
On your knees to take the count

So look in the mirror and see who you are
You made our lives an abbatoir
A man-eating machine, that's what you are

Pile of skulls, conspiracy
Beware of the revealing key
No dance of joy, no harmless spree
No chance for you to hide or flee
 
 
Lead Or Gold
Riding the tempests of glory.
The vessel is gliding along
Pounding the waves, majestically, proudly and strong
A flag flutters on the horizon, the plunder ready to-hand
The gunners are ready to fire, awaiting command

Pounding the sea, like a storm, wild and free
Obeying our call, fast and raw

The air sparks thunder and lightning their bellies are shivered with fear
We showered their coldhearted souls with sarcastic sneers
Our cohorts are ready for seizing
The skull and the crossbones fly high
We're taking over your vessel, whatever you try

Pounding the sea, like a storm, wild and free
Obeying our call, fast and raw

Lead or gold, we're daring our fate on the wings of the sea
Lead or gold, cursing all the conformists who'll never be free

Guns spitting iron and fire, acrid smoke clouding the air
Ripping the planks, feeding the flame of despair
Hoisting the flag of surrender, delivering their silver and gold
A generous gift to the poor, for the brothers they sold

Pounding the sea, like a storm, wild and free
Obeying our call, fast and raw

Lead or gold, we're daring our fate on the wings of the sea
Lead or gold, cursing all the conformists who'll never be free
 
 
White Buffalo
(White Buffalo is dedicated to his planet - the earth! R.I.P.)
Acid rain and poison cauterize its skin
A boiling hell we're living in
Bloodstained animals, chainsaws rip the trees
The gasping earth is on its knees

Choking breath, causing death
Exploitation is your law
Overkill, break its will
You loot it hard and raw

Like you killed the white buffalo you kill ozone, you break its bones
Like you killed the white buffalo
You tan its hide, sell its meat on the side

Once a source of glory, now a reborn hell
Your ivory tower is where you dwell
Gulping its vital lifeblood, pollution's rising high
You squeeze it out, you leave it dry

Choking breath, causing death
Exploitation is your law
Overkill, break its will
You loot it hard and raw

Like you killed the white buffalo you kill ozone, you break its bones
Like you killed the white buffalo
You tan its hide, sell its meat onthe side

Heedless, spraying poison contaminating air and ground
A misplaced sense of progress will destroy it pound for pound
Allergies and cancer, the pay for evil greed
Madness and corruption have sown their evil seed
 
 
Jennings' Revenge
(Jennings' Revenge is based on a true novel which happened in the year 1714.)
1714 that was the year
The Spanish fleet ran out of luck
The weather was stormy
the sea was lashing, furious lightning and thunderstruck
Three hundred men, fighting hand in hand
Abandonment or raid tons of 'pieces of eight'

The 'Flotilla' was driven down to the reefs
the wooden hulls of the vessels were cracked
300 000 'pieces of eight'
The fleet of that year was totally wrecked

Three hundred men, fighting hand in hand
Abandonment or raid, tons of 'pieces of eight'

The viceroy commanded to furnish a squad
60 soldiers to dreg up the plate
Look all their salvage to a small camp ashore
Lack of suspicion, no thought of a raid
Jennings came up with a hazardous plan
The Spanish garrison was taken by guise
Three sailing vessels, three hundred men
300 000 their glittering prize

Three hundred men fighting hand in hand
Abandonment or raid, tons of 'pieces of eight'

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, the Spanish plate hauled off by raid
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, Jennings' trick a painful kick

During their escape they happened to spy
A gorgeous Spanish merchant ship
'In for a penny, in for a pound'
They got them in their steely grip and several thousand 'pieces of eight'
To fill their ships up to the deck Jennings' fleet sailed out to sea
No one ever found his track

Three hundred men, fighting hand in hand
Abandonment or raid, tons of 'pieces of eight'

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, the Spanish plate hauled off by raid
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, Jennings' trick a painful kick
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, impudent tries will win the price
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, no soldier pack will find his track
 
 
Treasure Island
(Treasure Island is based on a novel by Robert Louis Stevenson.)
Squire Trelawny and Dr. Livesay having asked me, Jim Hawkins, to tell everybody the whole tale about the
island, Flint's treasure und Mr. Silver. Keeping nothing back but its position and that only, because the major
part of the treasure has not been liftet yet. I personally think we would never have begun this
adventure and set course with the 'Hispaniola', if we had known what would happen and that some of us would never
return, having lost their lives.
Sometimes the whole story haunts to my dreams and brings me the worst nightmares I ever had. That's when I hear the
cries of the fallen, the waves pounding the rocks on the coast and Captain Flint's raw voice screaming :'Pieces of
eight! Pieces of eight! Hahaha!' And I tell you, no oxen and wain ropes will ever take me back to 'Treasure
Island'!!!

Mr. Bones is fighting 'Black Dog'
He wants to split him to the chine
'Blind Pew' the bringer of the spot
Horse-hooves trampling his spine,
We have the map to start our trip
The 'Spuire' has the ship and the sailors
'Long John' is the man with the grip
No one knows he will raid us

The yell of the slain, the waves on the rocks
Captains Flint's raising hell
He's calling my name to drive me insane
Treasure Island, where the brave fell
A one-legged devil from the pit of hell
A greedy demon on his treasury
Cursed the island, oh, eternally

'Long John' is spreading his law hatching a death bringing plot
I show up in a council of war
What I heard in the barrel from this toad

The yell of the slain, the waves on the rocks
Captains Flint's raising hell
He's calling my name to drive me insane
But I'll never return to

Treasure Island, where the brave fell
A one-legged devil from the pit of hell
A greedy demon on his treasury
Cursed the island, oh, eternally

We see the land, shining sand but it can be our grave
I jump the boat, overload, trying to be too brave
Burning sun, find 'Ben Gunn', assassins claim the ship
I cut the rope, I try to cope, to free it from 'hand's' grip

Pulling row, cannon law, the jolly-boats last trip,
Killing tried, stockade fight, 'Silver 's' villains quit
Abandonment, to 'Silver's' hand, a cunning pact is made
Trick or treat, make scoundrels bleed, their dullness will be paid

I stumble to the stockade, the sweat drips from my brow
No one keeps a lookout, oh no!
The rabble owns it now
'Silver' tries to shield me, the 'Black Spot' comes again
He throws the map onto the ground, he plays a tricky game

Pickaxe, rope and shovel, the dead man marks the way
No chest, no gold, no silver, 2 guineas is their pay
Musket cracks like thunder the blood is running red
'Ben Gunn' kept the treasure, from the beginning to the end

When we put back to the sea
'Silver's' chains are doubly tight
'Long John' and his counterfeit key
Sidle away into the night

The yell of the slain, the waves on the rocks
Captain Flint's raising hell
He's calling my name to drive me insane
But I'll never return to

Treasure Island where the brave fell
A one-legged devil from the pit of hell
A greedy demon on his treasury cursed the island, oh, eternally

Treasure Island, where the brave fell
A one-legged devil from the pit of hell
A greedy demon on his treasury cursed the island, oh, eternally
 
 
Beggars' Night
(bonus)
Blood, blood, bloody night
The poor stand up and fight
Marquises, kings and all this vermin
Hunted up in burning streets
Fight, fight, fight with rage
Their menials are locked up in cage
The spirit of the rebel lives
Determined to break free

We stand up to break our chains
Rulers beware
We'll give you suffer and pain
On beggar's night
Riot terminates our pain
We'll catch you in your air
You have to pay for your blame
On beggar's night

Sin, sin, whip and chain
That's the way they lived and reigned
Too many people died in their dungeon
Now pain's too hard if it's for their profit
Beast, beast, go away
No reason why you have to stay
The wealth you squeezed out of our lives
Will become your tomb

We stand up to break our chains
Rulers beware
We'll give you suffer and pain
On beggar's night
Riot terminates our pain
We'll catch you in your air
You have to pay for your blame
On beggar's night
 
 
Hanged, Drawn And Quartered
Always looking for shelters, try to hide in the mist of the night,
Exist beyond reasons, give up the authorities of time,
Convoke in the name of god, born under the curse of inbreeding,
They govern us subordinates, with fire, iron, gaol (? it means jail) and chains.

Its a strange institution, they've left you no will to survive,
No truth and no mercy, with the sinner and the saints,
Its the thirst for freedom, that burns within everyone, so...
Raise your fist, be obsevant, rid us from the curses of the bad.

Gates of resentment, can you feel your blood run colder.
Gates of resentment, but you see its still the same.

They've hanged, they've drawn, they've quartered
Its time to end the lies and false excuses.
They've hanged, they've drawn, they've quartered
And they still have a smile on their face,
Stop these men.

Hear them speaking with tongues, not from this world,
Have no confidence
Prepare to run for your life, everyone must be saved.
All these guys are unexpected, no one wants to live in fear,
So make the law and wipe them out, we have to break the line.

Gates of resentment, can you feel your blood run colder.
Gates of resentment, but you see its still the same.

They've hanged, they've drawn, they've quartered
Its time to end the lies and false excuses.
They've hanged, they've drawn, they've quartered
And they still have a smile on their face,
Yeah.

Its going down really well, its all the work of the devil,
Escaping once more from these guys, leave it all behind.
The feeling that your feeling now is the feeling of pride,
We've made them shed their mask, so we can turn another page.

Your the tamer of the rabid lamb, you can be full of haughtiness.
But be aware all the time, a restless spirit is running wild.

Gates of resentment, can you feel your blood run colder.
Gates of resentment, but you see its still the same.

They've hanged, they've drawn, they've quartered
Its time to end the lies and false excuses.
They've hanged, they've drawn, they've quartered
And they still have a smile on their face.
 
 
Win Or Be Drowned
Like soldiers of fortune, we're cruising the sea
Against all odds, with the urge to be free
We're longing for freedom, like an animal that's chained
We're thirsty for justice, like a flower that's drained

Win or be drowned, so fight hard
Win or be drowned, like a wild shark
Win or be drowned, so stand tight
Win or be drowned, freedoms fight

Slave - drivers hunted, our cannons will speak
A frightening terror,for the profit they seek
Like sea - cruising phantoms, on the breath of the sea
We are foiling their plans, hooked, they can't flee

Win or be drowned, so fight hard
Win or be drowned, like a wild shark
Win or be drowned, so stand tight
Win or be drowned, freedoms fight

We're still full of pride, we are fighting for life
For independence we're struggling, we've got to survive
We're longing for freedom, like an animal that's chained
We're thirsty for justice, like a flower that's drained

Win or be drowned, so fight hard
Win or be drowned, like a wild shark
Win or be drowned, so stand tight
Win or be drowned, freedoms fight
Win or be drowned, so fight hard
Win or be drowned, like a wild shark
Win or be drowned, so stand tight
Win or be drowned, freedoms fight.
 
 
Uaschitschun'92
No more eagles gonna ride the wind
Turning circles in the sky
Badlands growing and the bison's gone
Uaschitschun tell me why

Why'd you kill my creed
Claiming earth and wind
You never kept your vow
But you can't lock me in

I'm riding free
Riding free with the wind
Free as an eagle
Proud as a king

My mother's the earth and my father's the wind
You can't possess them, they are free
It's time for you to see what you have done
Can't hold my soul cause I will flee

Why you kill yourself
Ravage what you need to live
You can't eat your gold
Nature's calling you
