Sword of Steel
Riding out in darkness
Hoarding no fear
Toward horizons
Dyed in black
We drew the circle once again
Around the pentagram
Our swords drip in crimson
To conjure the one
Sign of evil Rides us through
We see the flames of hell arise
As we open the gates

Sword of steel must be held up high
Somber shades of death we ride
Sword of steel will laude the one
Sword of steel will crack the sky

For aye the one will rise in shadows
He holds the key to infinity
Open the gates, swing my sword up high
Sword of steel alk in darkened vapour
Clad in veils of night
Unholy powers will rise again
We complete the ceremony
To hail-side by side
 
 
Skyline Flame
Lachrymose they saw him leaving
Riding along the skyline flame
His shrieks shall forever echo
Over valleys and hills
Mesmerized by the evil
Let the imperial one rule
Ornated in blood we stand
And in his eyes shone victory

In from the darkness he'll return
To his fortress
Standing here with pride
The skyline flame

Paralyzed by the dark one
Riding along the skyline flame
The one who leads us in darkness
And takes us to the flaming depths
We have seen the abyss
We crave its infernal deep
We light our candles
And let them light the way
 
 
Black Death
The countess was laughing
She looked out the plague from her throne
By the gate in the darkness
The crowd was screaming in pain
Cursed of sickness by starving
People dying slow
They are burning their bodies, the victims
The plague got in hold

The plague is getting in its hold
There is no way to escape
The old man conquered her throne
So it's been told

A new day was rising
The unknown came riding along
An old man with power and strength
To conquer the throne
In shelter of darkness
The people were standing strong
By their leader the old man
They are hunting the countess down
 
 
In a Time of Blood And Fire
In a time of blood and fire
Before the break of dawn
Mighty swords were held to the sky
In a land that rules by darkness
Of evil and fire spawned
Damnation now eclipsed the sun

As black horsemen rode along with
Death at their side
So the scene of death rose the winds
In black blood they shall baptize
And under a black star the demon will rise

In a time of blood and fire
They rode across the lands
In a time of blood and fire
Under wings of yore they shelter

A thousand years have passed now
Oh, so grim and dark
Now men must laude the demon's mark
Servants of unholy powers
In darkness must confide
To the abyss in the darkness they descend
 
 
Dawnspell
The Spell of the dawn has been cast
Like the storm rides the wind
It clouds darkness and evil
To come on strong again
It follows the sign of the one
The bringer of thunder and storm
Voices of darkness now call out
The one to ride again

Riding out in storm under cover
Look out for the dawn and its power
The spell is cast as it rides the wind
Standing tall holy defenders
Come on strong before the dawn
And the night will come and spell will
Rise again

The curse of the spell has brought fear
To the people again
They run from the curse for they dread
The spell of dawn they've seen
There is no way to run from the spell
The bringer of thunder and storm
Voices of darkness anew called out
And the ones they rode again
 
 
Lay of Ennui
Hear us prince of darkness
Guide us to our dreams
To hold the seven keys
To rule the world beneath
We crave the blackest love
As we gaze on through the gate
Now thy name we call out
Give us lord of evil
Thy touch shall atone
Through the sea of flames
The seven gates we see
We await the black salvation
We light the thirteen candles
Now thy name we call out

Lay of Ennui king of the lore
Lay of Ennui hear our call
Lay of Ennui prince of the darkness
Lay of Ennui we abide

Through the darkest night
Guide us to our dreamshow in front of thee
But you won't hear
As the flames of evil arose
We draw the sign in the blood
Now thy name we call out
 
 
Winds of Death
Through the winds of death we ride
I swing my sword up high
You'll taste my steel, I won't abide
'Cause you know you are gonna die

Clad in leather and chains we slay
We fight for king and land
We'll burn your homes and bring you dismay
With our vast swords in hand

Glory, victory, forever hail

Howl in mighty rage
Clad the sky bleak
Claw the hide of enemy
Hail the winds of death

We spread the ashes of your dead
There is nothing left to save
We sear the ground where they bled
We pledge doom upon your grave

Make them cry and bleed
The storm shall howl and now descend
Hordes of shade, they call, they heed
They call, they heed
 
 
Rest in Peace
Called out to load the ships
They are sailing at dawn
With hundred men at their side
Flames from a distance
Lighting up the sky
And the warriors will rise
Armed with swords and arrows
Battle begins
They will fight for their pride
The sound of steel echoes in the night
The wind cries out loud

Into the night they are calling
To the ones dying brave
May they now rest in peace
Forever the battle is won

Twenty of the men are
Slowly going down
But the treasures are found
Back on the ship, the survivors
Scream out - the battle is won
The twenty men who couldn't
Make it to share their victory
May they now rest in peace
On the dragonisle, they are buried
Side by side
Hail to their pride
 
 
Dragonisle
By the power of our father's rusty swords
We are standing proud and strong
Under banner and king our soil
Drinks blood of the enemy
From here we see through the raven's eyes
We ride the winds of north
And from cups of silver we drink from
The dragon's blood

Standing tall
STAND TALL
To fight them all
FIGHT THEM ALL
For Dragonisle

Through the Seven winds of Wrath we
Called
Called up to the gods
With steel at our sides we defend the dragonisle
Baptized in the dragon's blood
We hail our king with pride
And in the fire, for aye one with the king

Ring of Steel
The queen sent out a message,
She heard about the ring 
With powers that no man,
That no man would dare to face
The warrior headed north,
Riding through the night alone
Searching night and day for the
Secret of the ring
The secret of the legend
Lives forever 
The legend brought the queen together 

In from the darkness the warrior returned
And the ring that he held in his hand,
Had the powers
To freeze the world, 
While the queen would bring madness
It's the ring of steel

A new day is rising,
The queen is laughing still
The ring that she wears
It's the evil itself
The secret of the legend lives forever
The legend brought the queen together

In from the darkness the warrior returned
And the ring that he held in his hand, had the powers
To freeze the world, 
While the queen would bring madness
It's the ring of steel
The ring was founded again
By the rightful owners strong demand
The queen is laughing still out of control
 
 
Dark Secret
The sun fades away as a distant flame
Against the sky
Beyond the clouds lies
The undiscovered truth
A realm still not known to man
And the powers it possesses
Now the time is soon at hand so beware

Destined to doom by a force of the unknown
The answer still not far away
You all may wonder what lies beyond

Passing away through the eye of the storm
Sealed up inside so untouched, so secured
In the eye of the storm lies the secret alone
In dark deep inside, a power so strong

The sky starts dividing,
And sends its wrath down to earth
The fallen ones emerge out of the mist
With powers never seen before,
And the secret it withholds
Another victim of the secret
Had come forth

Destined to doom by...

Through the eye of the storm...
 
 
Test of Time
Standing lost at a crossroad
Life is lying in my hands
Faith is calling above us
And who can tell when the world will end

Time will choose only one man
Only one must grow old
We can both see it coming
And we know, it's been told

Passing through centuries
My mind growing weaker
Whose fate will be sealed
The gift of growing old

Only the strongest one
Will make it to the end
The final gathering is at hand

The time has come, there will be one
To stand the trial and the test of time
Another lifetime is on the other side

We're the last ones standing
Only one must fall
By the sword it settles
And we know it's been told

As the steel rings through the night
I strike the deadly wound
We both see it's coming
And I know I'm the chosen one
 
 
Lost in Time
I'm waking up all alone
Not knowing where I am
Is this a dream or is this time for real
Will I forget about the past

Or will I end this way

If this is the way, how will I find it
Give me a sign I'll carry on

Still lost in time 
Forever
Forever lost in time

Standing here in a world so cold
This silence makes me mad
I wander endless miles to find the truth
My future lies ahead
I got this second chance 
 
 
The Vision
Look through the darkness the vision of life
Then tell me what do you see.
A dream you believe is a life you can't see
Something exists but can never be.
You will wake up but not from a dream
When you wake up it will be for real
The feeling is real and so is the pain
Wherever you go it'll be the same

You cant believe you're trapped inside.
This can't be real, wake up in time
Before it's too late, before you've crossed the line

Don't overlook the eye of your mind 
When the eye of that vision is a piece of another time.
Forever beware of what you dream
The vision is so closed behind.

The vision you saw the eye of your mind
A dark side of you never meant to be.
The reason of being inside of this dream
Something you never thought you would see.
The fury of madness the power of dreams
You could be safe so let visions be
You hold the secret the vision inside
Keep the knowledge and seal it inside
 
 
Warrior's Return
Riding out in the storm
Yet the night seemed so calm
We were hundreds of men
Side by side
Still the winds blowing strong
But sheltered by faith, we rode on,
On and on

Through the mist, we went on
With steel at our sides
We would make it to the end
Side by side.
Trough the rain and the mist
Approaching our goal, we would
Never, never surrender.

We're standing strong
There's a war left to fight
Beware for the warriors return
With swords held up high
There's blood left to spill
Prepare for the warriors return

We could fight 'till the end
Complete the quest
'Til the victors are standing alone.
By the strike of our blades
Men would fall at our feet
We've completed the quest
Once again.

We're coming home
Now the battle is won
Honor for the warriors return.
Pride for the ones who died for the cause
Glory for the warriors return.

Fill the cups up with wine
Uniting our force
And cheer for the battle we've won
And pride in our hearts
We will never surrender
 
 
Change the World
The stillness of the night is here 
Our brothers of the world are standing alone
To take a stand when time has come

We'll lead the revolution through the streets
The time is now to fight the world

Join our hearts in unity now brothers of all
Stand together and our voices will be heard
When all is lost and nothing is gained.
Then I will change the world

When all is done we'll stand as one
We won, our trail through life is done

We'll lead the revolution through the streets
The time is now to fight the world

Join our hearts in unity now brothers of all
Stand together and our voices will be heard
When all is lost and nothing is gained.
Then I will change the world
 
 
Pentagram
They set sails towards the sea
Only brave men with hearts of steel.
To embark upon the journey
And bring the treasure back.
They will head the old man's words
As he wrote so long ago
"Go and find the treasure
And live for evermore."
For thousand days they sailed
Towards a distant world.
Reaching to where heaven ends
Beyond the stars- to find the pentagram.

Now the skies fades to black
Strong winds tear the sails apart.
Above them roaring thunder
That echos in the night.
Mighty waves cast the ship aside
One hundred men go down.
Everyone but one man
That lived on to be free.

Long ago they sailed away
To a land beyond the stars.
One man brought the fortune home
And lived for evermore.
 
 
Eye of the Demon
Beyond the valley lies a neverending force,
The strongest of powers ever known.
For a thousand ages they tried to get hold
Of the power that lies out of reach.
No swords of magic, no powers of man
Could ever break the seal of fate.
Look within yourself to find the true meaning
The end is closer than you know.

Break the silence of the storms.
Find the keys to the seventh winds.
Beyond this world lies a secret,
Men would die to uncover.
But within is where we learn how to see,
Where the journey begins.

Eye of the demon.

Open the eye into a neverending world
To live the dream you never knew
Fill your heart with strength from the mind
Rise to live and never die.
 
 
End of the World
The prophecy tells of the powers so strong
There's no chance to be saved from the fate
There's no future for life, but the fire still burns
And the world ill soon reach its end.

All eyes of this world shall witness
The coming of the prophecy.
Stand the chance, stand in faith.

It's the end, it's the end of the world
Heaven's falling down

The sun will turn black and then heaven shall fall
An earthquake is shaking the ground.
Open the seals and the secret unfolds
As we witness the fall of the earth

The sun loosing shape and heaven starts falling.
There's no chance to be saved from this fate.
 
 
The Curse
There's something in the dark
There's something is us all
The fear of dying has no end
The fire in our eyes
Will keep our faith alive
The burning flame will last forever

In our dreams the curse lives on and on
'Till light breaks the spell
The memory still haunts us down
All because of the curse

There's something we all know
In the past down below
That haunts our minds and dreams together
We're searching for the way
Below the unknown truth
The burning flame will last forever 

In our dreams the curse lives on and on
'Till light breaks the spell
The memory still haunts us down
All because of the curse
 
 
Burn in Hell
I'm a loser, it's tearing me apart
But I've got some news,
I'm not going down this time
Wake up your fools 
'Cause you don't stand a chance
If I stand or fall,
I'll rise no matter what

Doomsday's bells (doomsday's bells)
Hear the prophet's word
You're a liar and a thief,
By my hands I'll make you kneel

Burn in hell, burn in hell
By my hands I'll make you kneel

Choke on the pieces of your past
Nowhere to run, the luck will take it's turn

Doomsday's bells (doomsday's bells)
Hear the prophet's word
You're a liar and a thief,
By my hands I'll make you kneel

Burn in hell, burn in hell
By my rage and fury fall

Wake up, you fools don't stand a chance
If I should fall I'll rise again.
