01. Deus Lo Vult

spoken word:

This is the fascinating tale of the Templars, probably the most powerful and mysterious organizations of the Middle Ages.
The Order of The Poor Knights Of Christ and the Temple Of Salomon originate from a group of nine Aristocrats, whose sole
aim was the protection of the Holy Land. So let us undertake a journey into the past, back to the origin, rise and fall
of the Order of the Templars. A journey, which will lead us to the legendary world of the Knights of the Cross.


02. Knights Of The Cross

It is the end, of the eleventh century
The Christians rule
European countries
The Pope is the head of church
Representing God on Earth
His words are the law
His mind is set on war

In the name of God they kill
In the name of God they rape
Blood leads to glory - for God's sake

Knights, knights of the Cross
Murder, murder
Fight to defend Jerusalem
From the unholy devils

Pope and priests cry out for holy war
God and Jesus they think to be fighting for
The Islam conquered Byzant
Slaughter Christians everywhere
Knights of the Cross invade the East
Where the Islam dwells

In the name of God they kill
In the name of God they rape
Blood leads to glory - for God's sake

Knights, knights of the Cross
Murder, murder
Fight to defend Jerusalem
From the unholy devils

Knights in the name of
God, stab women and men
Burning, raping, eating human flesh
Satanic bloodlust in their eyes
The first crusade is won
The knights realize too late
Their ankles are covered with Christian blood

In the name of God they kill
In the name of God they rape
Blood leads to glory - for God's sake

Knights, knights of the Cross
Murder, murder
Fight to defend Jerusalem
From the unholy devils

04. Heroes Of This Time

Now the time has come
The pagans are finally gone
Jerusalem in Christian hands
The Templars raise their banners
Innocence gives them their benediction
Epic songs all over the land
Knights of the Cross die for religion
Death in action brings the Promised Land

Heroes of this time
In their honour
Church bells never
Cease to chime

Heroes of this time
Paradise comes
When blood flows
Like wine

Martyrs made of steel
Longing for God to reveal
Outremer deadly holy ground
Lives are lost, celestial bliss found
In the middle of the twelfth century
Their glamorous empire starts to crumble
Fanatic assassins are seeking victory
King Saladins army starts to rumble

Heroes of this time
In their honour
Church bells never
Cease to chime

Heroes of this time
Paradise comes
When blood flows
Like wine


05. Fanatic Assassins

I am the old man of the mountains
Leader of Muslim warriors
I hand them the revelating pipe
Then they know the after-life

Wherever I order suicide
You will sacrifice
Jump, jump off the wall
Allah will receive you all

Fanatic assassins
Fanatic assassins

You are my war machines
Your minds painted blood-red
I'll wash your souls so white
Invincible in any fight

Wherever I order suicide
You will sacrifice
Jump, jump off the wall
Allah will receive you all

Fanatic assassins
Fanatic assassins


06. Lionheart

Fiery red curls cover his shoulder
He's the ruler, no one is bolder
His steel - blue eyes won't show no fear
Reflecting the suffering of war so clear
A knight, a leader, wearing England's crown
Richard the Lionheart wants to put the Muslims down
He sets the sail, heading Outremer
Defending the name he bears

A man like a Lion
With a generous heart
For his sake thousands die
Lionheart - England's pride

Lionheart
Almighty king
Freedom you'll bring

Lionheart
Spread your wings
King of the kings

King Philip at his side and many knights
Overcome the Islam, souls painted white
He executes all prisoners, without regret
Corpses cover the ground as the sun sets

A man like a Lion
With a generous heart
For his sake thousands die
Lionheart - England's pride

Lionheart
Almighty king
Freedom you'll bring

Lionheart
Spread your wings
King of the kings

Akkon has fallen into Richard's hands
War on his mind, moving to France
In one fatal moment came the end of his quest
Breathing his last with an arrow in his chest

A man like a Lion
With a generous heart
For his sake thousands die
Lionheart - England's pride

Lionheart
Almighty king
Freedom you'll bring

Lionheart
Spread your wings
King of the kings


07. Keeper Of The Holy Grail

The Grail is veiled in mystery
Ancient books of history
Last Supper with his discipleship
Jesus raised it to his lips
When Christ was crucified
Lance was stabbed in his side
The Grail collected the pouring blood
Thus blessed by the Son of God

A cup of gold
A sacred stone
Heaven choose
The keeper of the Holy Grail

Magic force
White rose
Heaven choose
The keeper of the Holy Grail

Someone knows
Who's the one
Heaven choose
The keeper of the Holy Grail

Templar knights
Know the hide
Heaven choose
The keeper of the Holy Grail

The Grail donates eternal life
Initiated are kept from strife
The sick are healed
A shelter and a shield
Youth will last forever
But there's no use to endeavour
Be one of the elected
Only a few have been selected

A cup of gold
A sacred stone
Heaven choose
The keeper of the Holy Grail

Magic force
White rose
Heaven choose
The keeper of the Holy Grail

Someone knows
Who's the one
Heaven choose
The keeper of the Holy Grail

Templar knights
Know the hide
Heaven choose
The keeper of the Holy Grail


08. Inquisition

A bloody Friday October 13th
Inquisition takes its course
King Philip's armed force

Templars are blamed for conjuration
They are said to be heretics
And cursed by the catholics
Because they didn't save Jerusalem

Are you the one
Who's into blasphemy
You better run
Escape from agony

Are you the one
Believing in Baphomet
Make your confession
And you will be free

Seeking the hidden treasures
The Pope is taking measures
Persecution spreads all over Europe

Are you the one
Who's into blasphemy
You better run
Escape from agony

Are you the one
Believing in Baphomet
Make your confession
And you will be free


09. Baphomet

In the dark of the night
Behind the walls
They say that we worship an idol
Behind the walls

A devil in disguise
An unholy cat
But it's a secret
We keep it until we are dead

We all believe in Baphomet
We believe in what we see
Your disciples belong to thee

Building up our strength
Behind the walls
They accuse us of a bloody sacrilege
Behind the walls

We would never betray
The one we adore
Yours are our lives
We sacrifice it in war

We all believe in Baphomet
We believe in what we see
Your disciples belong to thee


10. Over The Sea

The Order's end is near
Templars flee filled with fear
Heretics, homosexuals and magicians
To be exterminated by the inquisition
The order of Pope and King
Lets them leave behind everything

The fleet is ready, ready to sail
And no one knows its destination
Gathering all the victims, victims of persecution
In quest of a better world without hate without deadly peril

Over the sea
And far, far away
Over the sea
Into the night they flee

Many Templars succeeded to escape from the Christian hate
They found their peace in Scotland
Since Robert the Bruce was banned
When he stabbed Comyn in a church
Giving the Order shelter in the Highlands

The fleet is ready, ready to sail
And no one knows its destination
Gathering all the victims, victims of persecution
In quest of a better world without hate without deadly peril

Over the sea
And far, far away
Over the sea
Into the night they flee


11. The Curse Of Jaques

You say that we sold our soul to the devil, that we're out of control
Your torture my brothers, torture my sisters, kill all my friends
You say that we worship a god, like a cat, a devil in disguise
You execute my family, steal their breath, and burn them till death

I'm burning, I'm dying,
I'm burning, I'm dying
Oh Lord, won't you help me
I'm burning, I'm frying

When I feel my end is near
When I feel the reaper's here
Crackling fire I can hear

When I feel my end is near
When I feel the reaper's here
I watch the demons dancing round my tears

I'm innocent - it's not true I never prayed
We will all be treated the same way at Doomsday
I curse Pope and King - you won't make it another year
The Last Judgement will decide who was wrong or who was right

I'm burning, I'm dying,
I'm burning, I'm dying
Oh Lord, won't you help me
I'm burning, I'm frying

When I feel my end is near
When I feel the reaper's here
Crackling fire I can hear

When I feel my end is near
When I feel the reaper's here
I watch the demons dancing round my tears


12. The Battle Of Bannockburn

The wind lashed in our faces
The English found our traces
On moss-covered land
Scotland we defend
At Stirling bridge we try to last
But we fail to stand fast
Blood mingles with pouring rain
Writing tales of pain

Help - else we will perish
Help - else we will vanish
Look - heaven's sign
Look - ship's graceful lines

White knights appear
Silhouetted against the dark
In the battle of Bannockburn
The tables turn

Few knights appear
But masters of the fight
In the battle of Bannockburn
The tables turn

They draw their gleaming swords
Two knights one horse
How they swing their flail
Ending the bloody tale
Just like a bad dream
English disappear in fog
Finally - victory
Highlanders' victory

Help - else we will perish
Help - else we will vanish
Look - heaven's sign
Look - ship's graceful lines

White knights appear
Silhouetted against the dark
In the battle of Bannockburn
The tables turn

Few knights appear
But masters of the fight
In the battle of Bannockburn
The tables turn


13. Children Of The Grave

Revolution in their minds
The children start to march
Against the world in which they have to live
And the hate that's in their hearts
They're tired of being pushed around and told just what to do
They'll fight the world until they've won and love comes flowing through

Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
Will the sun rise up tomorrow bringing peace in any way?
Must they live in the shadow of atomic fear?
Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear? Yeah!

So you children of the world listen to what I say
If you want a better place to live in spread the word today
Show the world that love is still alive you must be brave
Or you children of today are children of the grave yea
