01. Battering Ram

Music & lyrics by Sielck
Riding on a tidal wave
of energy and sound
crashing through the barrier
the sonic bang will pound
and as the wind is blowing in
the mighty storm is setting in
rise - and lift me up to
where the thunder rolls

static in the air
charging everywhere
ready to ignite
to take a thunderride
we are hunting the eye of the storm
by a power deep within it we are drawn
taking a ride on the storm
let it push you to the limits to bang
like a battering ram

muscles all contorted
as the blood begins to boil
taken by titanic force
brought to native soil
and as the wind begins to howl
the storm is taking on control

rise - and lift you up to
where the thunder rules

with the wind in the rear
onto the stratosphere
the engine did ignite
to take a thunderride

we are hunting the eye of the storm

[solo by Piet]

rise - and lift me up to
where the thunder rolls

with the wind in the rear

we are hunting the eye of the storm

bang like a battering ram
to bang like a battering ram
unleashing the force of the storm
to bang like a battering ram


02. Stand Against The King

Music by Küstner
Lyrics by Sielck
In a forgotten land
where evil is enthroned
the forces gathering
to retake what they have owned
10.000 men are standing side by side
10.000 knights are getting ready to fight

stand against the king
rebellion will begin
strike him down
burn the crown
blood is on his hands
justice to the land
no more lies
rebellion will arise

under the reign of fright
too many nights of blood and tears
the streets are rising up
know the time to strike is near
coming near

10.000 warriors are riding out
10.000 blades remove all traces of doubt

stand against the king
...

stand against the king
bring him down
smash the crown
rebellion will arise

bloodshed and atrocities
are lashing on the land
the word's been spread concealed
but know it's been revealed
the fate of the king is sealed
with a mighty crash of thunder
the opponents will collide
the blood toll will be high
but still it's worth to die
for freedom is what they defy

[solo by Piesel]

10.000 men are standing
side by side
...

stand against the king
...


03. Tyranny Of Steel

Music by Küstner/Sielck
Lyrics by Sielck
Far beyond our boundary
a danger has emerged
far out in the black
it's getting ready to attack
cold and tearless retinas
are staring at the world
raiders from an ancient land
where life came to an end
worlds are colliding
but onwards we're riding
to get to the core
the center of all
the iron fist will make the tyrants fall

to strike them down...

mighty savior - giant made of steel
let your hammer pound
on the evil we'll reveal
robot raiders - tyranny of steel
let your hammer pound
defending our very ground

power shielded, cybernetic,
circuits driven force
unrelenting war machines
showing no remorse
forged by insanity
in ancient history
creations of hate
made to terminate
no way of hiding
so therefore we're riding
to get to the core
...
to strike them down
to smash their crown

mighty savior - giant made of steel
...
defending our ground

[lead Piesel and Piet]

titans colliding
but onwards we're riding
beyond the abyss
the center of all
the iron fist will make the tyrants fall

to strike them down
to smash them down

mighty savior - giant made of steel
...

under the banner
of freedom we're riding
worlds are colliding
beyond the abyss


04. Time Will Tell

Music & lyrics by Sielck
Wind is howling through dusty canyons
a burning sun in a dying land
scorching heat in the plains of death
where blazing fire was taking a breath
here I stand in the desert sand
looking at what once has been
but all I see is wasted world
nothing's outlasted our sins
once we've been ruling
in valleys of green
now we are chained
in a realm of the machines

time - only time will tell
if there'll be heaven or hell
time - only time will tell
if there'll be heaven or hell
trails of destruction are marking the truth
testify to insanity
we challenged creation
the arrogance died
atomic thunder was burning the sky

seems as we're lost in the twilight of decay
unbent we'll break the chains
to rise again some day

time - only time will tell
if there'll be heaven or hell

the machinery is marching
as their powers are enlarging
built with precision and perfection
to serve a perfect world, to give protection
command turned into slavery
this is the bitter irony of history
but we will fight

[solo Piet]

time - only time will tell
if there'll be heaven or hell
...


05. Wings Of Deliverance

Music & lyrics by Sielck
Far beyond the horizon
far beyond the setting sun
I am carving a way
through barren land
holding on to my memories
they are keeping me alive
making me strong
they're making me stand
hot, dusty canyons
I have been through
My heart is burning for ya
Oh it's bleeding for you

wings of deliverance
bring me home
wings of deliverance
carry me home

and whenever I'm closing my eyes
it is you that I have on my mind
echoes of what I had to leave behind

10.000 miles of torture
10.000 miles of pain
but nothing, nothing is keeping me from ya
I'm coming back to you again

wings of deliverance
...

held in captivity
in a cold, damp prison cell
locked up in a cage
I have been given hell
but never to be broken
I always did resist
and then I took my chances
to vanish in the mist

[solo]
[Martin - Piet - Martin - Piesel - Piet]

wings of deliverance
bring me home
wings of deliverance
carry me home


06. Break The Curse

Music & lyrics by Sielck
Another wasted night ahead
another wasted day
stuck in a dead end
with a monster in your head
feeding on your energy
taking over control
makes you obey
spilling poison to the soul
in dull submission
you won't track down its hide
it's the indifference
that made you blind

break the curse
time is running short
shorter than you think
break the curse

from very deep inside your mind
a voice is calling you
saying:
there's gotta be more to life than you know

shake off the routine from your mind
and leave the treadmill far behind

break the curse
...
break it up

[solo Piesel - Piet]

don't let the demon of conformity
destroy it all
what's still there waiting to be free

go kill the monster in your head
you gotta gotta gotta
burn down the treadmill
and move straight ahead

break the curse
...

stand up and raise your fist up high
and make two fingers pointing to the sky


07. Riding Free

Music & lyrics by Sielck
Sometimes I dream
of a place to forget
where I would find some peace of mind
but the world just ain't like that
holy wars - armies are marching
terror is lashing the land
an eye for an eye - blood for blood
death in the name of god
sometimes I wish myself just far away
to spread out my wings and fly away
here in my mind
I can leave it all behind

to ride on the wind
like an eagle in the skies
high above the land and sea
I'm riding free
higher and higher
ascending to the skies
where no one takes my liberty
I'm riding free - I'm riding free

Memories
forever they?re gonna last
shook my heart to the very ground
as the walls came tumbling down
almighty towers are grinded to dust
a graveyard of rubble remains
I saw them crying - I saw them dying
as they've been burned in the flames

sometimes I wish myself just far away
to spread out my wings and fly away
onto a land
where my fate is in my hand

I'm riding the wind
like an eagle in the skies
...

escalating violence
in circles of brutality
suicide assassins
but there ain't no victory
fanatic believers - religious deceivers
the holy land is soiled with blood
attack - revenge - hi-tech war
in the name of god

[solo Piet]

open up your eyes
and look up to the skies
spread your wings and fly away
just for a while
forget about your sorrow
there'll always be tomorrow
let the wind take you far away

ride on the wind
like an eagle in the skies
...

riding free


08. Starchaser

Music by Küstner/Sielck
Lyrics by Sielck
Up in the skies
the stars are shining bright
on what is called the human kind
in silent majesty
they're watching from up there
this overbearing planet's vanity fair
voices in the distance
keep on whispering to me
now I have to follow
to set my spirit free

starchaser - skies are open wide
starchaser - calling me from deep inside
starchaser - I have crossed the line
starchaser - I'm diving into space and time
to be free

for all so long
I've been in search to find
my destiny, some peace of mind
it seems like everything
I did just wasn't right
life seemed to be a futile fight

it's almost been too late
to understand, to turn around
but here I am
I have been leaving ground

starchaser - skies are open wide
...

[solo Piesel]

till the end of time
the universe is mine
my fate lies in my hand
and if even though
the world will never now
my fate lies in my very hand
for now and for all times

starchaser - skies are open wide
starchaser - calling me from deep inside
starchaser - the universe is mine
starchaser - I'm diving into space and time
to be free


09. Machine World

Music & lyrics by Sielck
Projected images
of what the world is like
trying to find the answer
in every single byte
what is reality
and is my spirit real
is it made of true emotions
or artificial feel
what is existence
and what defines to be
can there be life
in a programmed virtuality
I am a god
I am life - I am creation
I am a demon
I am death - I'm termination
I am perpetual, I'm everlasting
till the end of time
for all my wisdom cannot answer
all the questioning of mine

machine world
one million years of pain
down below under the desert
machine world
damnation to remain
in a cybernetic land
deep down below the desert sand
machine world
countless eyes are questing
for the mystery of life
gathering information
to be processed in my drive
I need to find the essence
reason why I'm here
therefore I'm not paying heed
I'm a killer spreading fear

Oh I'm love and I'm hate
I am a sinner
I'm a devil - I'm a saint
I am perpetual, I'm damned
for all eternity to be
and all the knowledge
and the wisdom
it cannot make me see
the meaning of reality

machine world
one million years of pain
...

[solo]
[Piet - Piesel - Piet - Piesel]

projected images...
what is reality...

I am a god
I am life - I am creation
I am a demon
I am death - I'm termination
I am perpetual, I'm damned
for all eternity to be
forever I'll be
and all the knowledge and the wisdom
it cannot make me see
the meaning of reality

machine world
one million years of pain
down below under the desert
machine world
damnation to remain
in a cybernetic land

machine world
heart of the machine
machine world
machine world
I'm in a cybernetic dream
machine world
damned forever


10. H.M Powered Man

Music & lyrics by Sielck
Can you feel the power
do you feel the force
do you feel the energy
from a truly unique source
you don't need no leather
no spikes or jingling chains
all you need is the energy
and the fire in your veins
walls of sound
are shaking the ground
as thunder is roaring in the sky

I'm in a Heavy Metal powered world
that's my way to be
I got a Heavy Metal powered mind
I don't need conformity
no one tells me what to do
what to think or be
I'm a Heavy Metal powered man
right - that's what I am

right from the beginning
I knew which way to go
six strings in my hand
turned out to be
my destiny
driven by the beat
the power and the heat
I wanted to explode
just to reload

walls of sound
where shaking the ground
as thunder was roaring in the sky

Heavy Metal powered world
...

[solo Piesel - Piet]

creepers - liars
self proclaimed, faked messiahs
power seeking maniacs

hiding shadows in the black
they
have gone another way
leading them so far away
far away from all
what Metal is standing for

we're in a Heavy Metal powered world
that's our way to be
we've got a Heavy Metal powered mind
to hell with all conformity
no one tells us what to do
what to think or be
we're Heavy Metal powered men
right...

we're Metal powered
...

that's our way
this is our chosen way to be
