(instrumental)


02. Trial By Fire

In 1945, the year it came to be,
Their fate decided
Many miles across the sea
They told them not to fear
They couldn't be prepared
Then came the day
That not a single soul was spared

Too late, there's no escape
The Trial has begun
Down they fly
From out of the sky
Feel the radiation burn

The men of power
Had nothing to fear
When the finger hits the switch
They're far away from here
Down in their sanctuary
Hiding in their lair
The sorcerers of justice
Will be waiting for them there

Too late, there's no escape
The Trial has begun
Down they fly
From out of the sky
Feel the radiation burn

I saw the people running
Through all my dreams
I heard the soldiers crying
Mother Nature screams
I saw destruction falling
From out of the sky
I heard the Wise Man calling... why?

In 1945, the year it came to be,
Their fate decided
Many miles across the sea
They told them not to fear
They couldn't be prepared
Then came the day
That not a single soul was spared

Too late, there's no escape
The Trial has begun
Down they fly
From out of the sky
Feel the radiation burn


03. Blades Of Steel

The Vikings, they were conquerors, they sought to rule the land
Many peaceful villages were crushed beneath their hands
Driven by the power of Lucifer and Thor
They pillaged and they plundered, took women for their whores
Blades of steel

The Vikings sailed to foreign shores, with steel at their command
Seeking warmth and shelter, they roamed across the land
Zandor was their leader, there's none so fearless and brave
He'd guide them through the coming months
Through winter they'd be safe
Blades of steel

Shining sun warms the earth, autumn time has come
People gathered in the fields, the summer's almost gone
By the fireside, they would laugh and dance and sing
Prepared for anything the winter months would bring
But soon they would fall by blades of steel

Blades of steel, ripping through the town
Blades of steel, tearing you all down
Blades of steel, put terror in your hearts
Blades of steel, tear the world apart


04. No Turning Back

Looking for a way to put me down
I gotta stop your hanging around
You're telling me I'm crazy, but I'm not a fool
I don't live by the book, I don't want no rules

Trying to make it through all the rough times
All the way to the top, it's a tough ride
They're all calling me mad, I've gotta prove them wrong
I don't care what it takes, I can't wait too long

No turning back, can't stop me now
No turning back, so don't put me down
No turning back, 'cos I told you before
No turning back, no turning back, break down the door

What's it like at the top, it's a tough ride
You never know who's taking your side
Jealous people who are causing you pain
And there's the days when it drives you insane
No turning back, no time for dreaming
I love this life, I feel like screaming
You all should know, there's a lesson for learning
Deep in my heart, there's a flame that is burning

Gotta keep on trying when the going's tough
'Cos you can do anything if you want it enough
Believe in yourself, no one else but you,
And if you've got the guts, you can make it through

No turning back, can't stop me now
No turning back, so don't put me down
No turning back, 'cos I told you before
No turning back, no turning back, break down the door

No turning back


05. Broken Treaties

The white man ravaged the frontiers
The hunting grounds and the plains
Their braves were slaughtered in the thousands
The blood was falling like rain
The treaties were signed and the white man smiled
While twisting their knives in their backs
The whole Indian nation was facing starvation
A net of illusion was squeezing the life from the tribes
Their women were tortured, their bodies thrown into the flames

The flaming arrows were flying
And smoke rose up to the sky
The cavalry kept on charging
The soldiers never asked why
The chiefs still believe that their people could rise

And unite in a final attack
The treaties were broken by the white man's greed
They fought for their freedom, bought with blood
The Cherokee Nation, Shawnee, and Sioux,
A million war-braves, in surprise attack


06. Break Free

Out in the cold, you've got nowhere to run, but you're free again
When you're alone, you remember the day in your cell
You were convicted and sentenced to life
Your cries of, "injustice!" unheard
Locked inside, you planned your break
Now you're free

So you've got to run again
You've broken your chains
Now you've got to run, run, run

Gotta break free

Now that you're out, you can look for the ones who condemned you
Show the world that you're not just a pawn in this game
All of their faces you see in your mind
Your memories build up into hate
All you've been through, gonna put them through hell

So you've got to run again
You've broken your chains
Now you've got to run, run, run

Break out and run, your escape has begun
But the law's on your ass once again
Wanted and hunted, you know you can't hide
So keep running as fast as you can
You know you were innocent, you know they were wrong
And now they've turned you into a killer
Another wasted life now, just thrown it away
So with their own lives you're gonna make them pay

So you've got to run again
You've broken your chains
Now you've got to run, run, run

So you've got to run again
You've broken your chains
Now you've got to run, run, run

Gotta break free


07. Hunt You Down

I've had enough of your backstabbing
I'm getting tired of your lies
Had enough of vicious rumors
What you've seen with your own eyes

Be out of town before I come to get you
Keep on running, I'll hunt you down
Ain't no time to settle my vengeance
Don't start begging, I'll hunt you down
Keep out of my sights, 'cos I'll hunt you down
Get out of this place, I'm ready to blow
Touch me, I'll explode in your face

You hang around important people
And worm your way into their lives
They are happy 'cos they all trust you
You are happy sleeping with their wives

Be out of town before I come to get you
Keep on running, I'll hunt you down
Ain't no time to settle my vengeance
Don't start begging, I'll hunt you down
Keep out of my sights, 'cos I'll hunt you down
Get out of this place, I'm ready to blow
Touch me, I'll explode in your face

Can't you see that people love you face-to-face,
Behind your back, they take you down and mark your name?
I believe it's time to put you in your place
Win or lose, in the end it's all the same

Your name is etched upon the bullet
Assassins watch, they know you well
Your time is up, your days are numbered
Prepared yourself to burn in hell

Be out of town before I come to get you
Keep on running, I'll hunt you down
Ain't no time to settle my vengeance
Don't start begging, I'll hunt you down
Keep out of my sights, 'cos I'll hunt you down
Get out of this place, I'm ready to blow
Touch me, I'll explode in your face

10. Alone In The Dark

Now your time has come, you've got to travel away
But where your path will lead, no man can say
Look back on your life, hear the mourners' song
Just your inner conscience betrays your wrongs
Watch the road unfold before you
Is this not what you thought you'd see?
Shrug away the chains that bound you
You'll stand alone in the dark
But still you don't feel free

Sail away along the river
Where the souls of dead men moan
Will your road go on forever?
Could they leave you here alone?
No!

Through the white marble gates, down the dimly-lit path
Looking over your shoulder, did you hear someone laugh?
See the bright lights ahead, they possess their own call
Unaware that you're dead, got your back to the wall
The Gates of Justice now closed, hear the key in the lock
Watch and your path will unfold, as you stand alone in the dark

Trying to find a place to hide
As from the bonds of life you're freed
Satan, laughing, creeps inside
Attracted by your wealth and greed
All at once, you see your jury
All the bastards you have spurned
The Judge's eyes ablaze with fury
You stand alone now, feel the flames begin to burn

You're gonna stand alone in the dark
