01. Crimson Rider

As far as the eye can see
Sharp dressed fools with their crazy rules here
And blinding advice from all my friends
Reaching for perfection
I take off in the night
It won't be long, I'll be fighting there
When dawn is breaking

Holy fire I'm not scared of you
I'll take you to burn

Watch out for your enemy

Death can be seconds away
Live for now like there's no tomorrow
And forward we ride in this warlike machine
There'll be no returning

Holy fire I'm not scared of you
I'll take you to burn
Crimson rider, I am the baron of the sky
Come feel the wind turn

Holy fire I'm not scared of you
I'll take you to burn
Crimson rider, I am the baron of the sky
Come feel the wind turn
And when life is evil
I'll fly my wings across the sky

Is it our destiny
Killing our brothers


02. Back For My Life

I'm wide awake with the sacred sun
Sending echoes out to distant places
I hear the watch ticking on your wrist
Sleeping beauty I could not resist you
My head is aching from yesterday
Feeling guilty must be on my way

There's a voice deep inside of me
It took me by surprise
Now I know where my heart lies

I'm crawling back for my life
Pleading to my love
I've been lost in my desire
I was drinking, wasn't thinking
And I'm sorry if it makes you cry

You call me up on the telephone
You say you need me cause you're cold and lonely
Tempted by you, but I have to stay
Could never walk away from my girl

There's a voice deep inside of me
It took me by surprise
Now I know where my soul lies
A feeling I can't deny
It made me realise
Now I know why my heart cries

Crawling back for my life
Begging to my love
I've been lost inside the fire
I was drinking, wasn't thinking
And I didn't mean to make you cry
I was breaking the rule
Acting like a fool
Getting close to you
I was a chancer, a fake romancer
But now I know
Where my heart is true...
Where my heart is true

I'm crawling back for my life
Pleading to my love
I've been lost in my desire
I was drinking, wasn't thinking
And I'm sorry if it makes you cry
I was breaking the rule
Acting like a fool
Getting close to you
I was a chancer, a fake romancer
But now I'm home
Where my heart is true...
Where my heart is true


03. Wounds

I have walked this road before
So hard to find unopened doors
Lost my way but I have to stay for a while
I'll be searching for more

And my wounds are real
I must rise from the sorrow
And find my way out of the dark
I've cried my tears from pain
There's a new day tomorrow
I'll turn the hourglass again

Feel and trust your inner voice
Chase your dream with desire
Show the scars you've been hiding deep inside
And reveal who you are

And your wounds are real
You must rise from the sorrow
And find your way out of the dark
Cry your tears from pain
Face a new day tomorrow
And turn the hourglass again

And my wounds are real
I must rise from the sorrow
And find my way out of the dark
I've cried my tears from pain
There's a new day tomorrow
I'll turn the hourglass again

Cry your tears from pain
Face a new day tomorrow
We'll turn the hourglass again


04. I'm Not Afraid

Black oil on water - dark soul in pain
My eyes cry softly in the pouring rain
Rising from the ashes where the fire took its toll
And the wheel keeps turning
As the wind is blowing cold

I'm not afraid you know
I'm not afraid to rock the show
My heart is pounding in the night
I seek the light, I seek the light

Unleashed is the power
In the spirit of my dream
I've been tearing down the fences
Always trying to achieve
Come back to the living
Let your sorrow come undone
Cause you have to believe it
From your grief you can't run

I'm not afraid you know
I'm not afraid to rock the show
My heart is pounding in the night, I seek the light
I'm not afraid you know - I'm not afraid
I am a pagan far away from home - I'm coming home

I'm not afraid you know
I'm not afraid to rock the show
My heart is pounding in the night, I seek the light
I'm not afraid you know - I'm not afraid
I am a pagan far away from home - I'm coming home
I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
My heart is calling from afar, coming home


05. Headbanger's Ballroom

She's got fear in her mind, killing pain all the time
And the loneliness makes her feel hollow
She will stay out of sight, from the bright daylight
To forget all her troubles for a while

She just wants to dream away
Sick and tired of the games that people play
Hoping for a better day
She needs something to believe in in a life so unreal

Down to the Headbanger's Ballroom she will go
Seeking shelter from the strom
There she can party till the rising of the sun
A night creature on the run

He comes out in the night, he is one with the moonlight
Been looking for love to rely on
She'll be painting her lips, black jade on her fingertips
Trying to catch him with a smile

When her eyes begin to glow, there's a fire from deep down below
Getting ready for the show
She just wants to be near him, cause she knows he's the one

Down at the Headbanger's Ballroom they will dance
Finding shelter from the storm
They're not different only dreamers on the run
Dark creatures of the sun

Down at the Headbanger's Ballroom they will dance
Black leather witches and their boys
Where they can party till the rising of the sun
Night creatures on the run


06. After This War

I felt your love slip away
You know you shouldn't want to stay
Tell me why you disappeared
And why you've come back here
It hurts to have you near

The roaring silence fills the air
I gotta get myself out of here
Spilling coffee on my shoe, I shiver cause of you
My heart turns black and blue

How can I be with you after this war
My feelings are soar...baby
Why did you come back to hurt me some more
This is after the war

Now in this war I can't pretend
And our souls can never mend
This has to be the end
I've got to leave it all behind
On my way to another life - my new life

I have to go...oh baby

How can I be with you after this war
My feelings are soar...baby
Why did you come back to hurt me some more
This is after the war

Why did you come back
Please let me know, I don't understand
Why did you hurt me again
This is after the war...and I can't let you go


07. Into The Arena

No one knows the way
It's all a secret
Hunt for knowledge
On your journey home
Gotta fight for freedom, independent power
Living for now, trying somehow
Praying for the day

She's a blazer
I'm a soul chaser
We'll keep on searching for more
Cruising this firestone
Burn till it's over
Leading our ship to the core

Go, aim for the centre, explode
Till you fall out of time

Nothing's new, we wonder about our fathers
Try to learn from what they made of life
Like a gladiator, you're a broken hero
Building your shield for the battlefield
There's no easy way

Cruising this firestone
Burn till it's over
Leading our ship to the core

She's a blazer
I'm a soul chaser
We'll keep on searching for more
Cruising this firestone - burning
Leading our ship to the core


08. Dark From The Dying

Under the moon I'm a warrior
Seeking the shades of the night
Crossing the land like a hero
Marching with pain and delight
Nothing to gain but the scars inside
Cold is the mask and I'm sore from crying

I'm running blind in my shoes
I need places to go, I need things to feel
So I can find it myself something real to believe
I am ready to receive and I'm dark from the dying

After the storm silent water
Spirits must heal in the sun
But I am restless and aching with sorrow
Pushed without nowhere to run

Blind in my shoes
I need places to go, I need things to feel
So I can find it myself something real to believe
I am ready to receive and I'm dark from the dying

I follow a trail between love and lies
Bring me changes and I'll sacrifice

Finding myself
I need places to go, I need things to see
Blind in my shoes
As I'm longing to see what is meant to be
Finding myself...
I've got places to go...I've got things to see
And I'm dark from the dying
Sore from the crying


09. Falling Sparrow

I see a new beginning
As I'm moving towards my grave
I'll be rising from this life into silent darkness
It's just a glimpse of our time
I must act while I'm clear in my mind
Soon I'll be the ghost that lived with fury

And no one's listening in my mind...no
I'm searching for an inner sign

I'm crying colder, the lying's older
Fading are my eyes
Can you catch me I'm a falling sparrow
After all, don't let my soul wings die

We see the world in different stages
Always climbing from our blues
I guess the sour taste of bitterness can breed evil

If we could stop and turn back time here
Would we remove ourselves from crime
Some people say they're doing fine
But there's a struggle in their minds

Feel it coming, no more dawning
Fading are my eyes
Angel catch me, I'm a falling sparrow
After all, don't let my soul wings die

Feel it coming, no more dawning...no more

I'm crying colder, the lying's older
Fading are my eyes
Feel it coming, no more dawning
Fading are my eyes
Angel catch me, I'm a falling sparrow
After all, don't let my soul wings die


10. Black In The Burn

Stranger in a foreign land
I reach for you so take my hand
Torn inside I give the best I can
Crave to feel and throw the dice
We'll make another sacrifice

Bring me the light, show me paradise
Forever fighting in this shadow land
Come wind, rise fire

Cool wind, warm fire
Inspire me to live
Cold rock I know you
From my years of pain
I must find my strength again
And the story will be told
After life has been broken
My voice will return

Melting the steel, close to the sun
Dreaming away from this nightmare
A digital world where everyone feeds on lies
Falling from grace, the human race
Religion can never unite us
Only a few who stay on the barricades

When the news are heard
About the fallen bird
Sing my song so you can remember
I just wanted to be here forever you see
To create my soaring melody

And I'm black in the burn

Over the edge to the other side
Your enemy waits in the darkness
You must be strong and prepare for a change in time
Heaven is hell, no one can tell
Illusions of holiness blind us
A fragment of time is all that you'll ever know

When the news are heard of the fallen bird
Sing his song so you will remember
He just wanted to be here forever you see
And create his soaring melody

Deep in the cold, is it the end, I surrender to you
Always a mystery, destiny
far from home we're all alone
Heavy heart, no escape
Death will take us all away
Down in my darkness fights the demons in me
Can you hear me now
I'm sending madness, madness from below
No one can save the warrior soul...no
Welcome to this nightmare

When the news are heard of the fallen bird
Sing his song so you will remember
He just wanted to be here forever you see
And create his soaring melody

We crave to feel and throw the dice
It's just another sacrifice
Black in the burn

There's no returning
Turning black in the burn
