01. Hammer Of The Gods

I see the full moon rising
Across the blackest night
The sails on the horizon
Dragon-ships in flight
Gods are in the heavens
A crack across the sky
Coming with the thunder
Soon you're gonna die

Gods of war
Stand in fear
Strike you down
With the hammer of the gods
Hammer of the gods

The silhouettes of sunrise
Everything is still
Inside your heart is pounding
Waiting for the kill
Crashing through the silence
Come the Viking hordes
Screaming down with terror
With battle-axe and sword

Gods of war
Straight from Hell
Strike you down
With the hammer of the gods
Hammer of the gods

Prepare to meet the fury
Coming with the dawn
Take your wives and children
Protect them from the storm
Take your stand before them
Fighting to the last
Warriors of the Northland
Soon will cross your path

Gods of war
Stand in fear
Strike you down
With the hammer of the gods
Hammer of the gods
Hammer of the gods
Hammer of the gods
Of the gods


02. Back In 79

It was back in '79
When we rode the mighty tide
It swept across the world
We came together

We never stood alone
Wherever we did roam
This legacy of rock
Would last forever, yeah

Show me your hands
Show me your hands
Raise up your hands
Deliver me

Defenders of the faith
To you this vow we make
When our back's against the wall
We'll not surrender

You may be young or old
There's no difference at all
Just raise your glasses high
And sing our song

Show me your hands
Show me your hands
Raise up your hands
Deliver me

Show me your hands
Show me your hands
Raise up your hands
Deliver me

It was back in '79
When we rode the mighty tide
The music will go on
And never die

Show me your hands
Show me your hands
Raise up your hands
Deliver me

Show me your hands
Show me your hands
Raise up your hands
Deliver me


03. Surviving Against The Odds

Nobody said it was easy
When your back's to the wall
We started with nothing
Nothing at all

Just me and you against the world
That's how it's meant to be
You can't escape the simple truth
That was our destiny
Surviving against the odds
Surviving against the odds

They never thought we could make it
That was never the case
We made a vow to each other
That nothing could break

To stand your ground against the odds
That's what we've got to do
Together we can face the worst
That life can throw at you
Surviving against the odds
Surviving against the odds

Don't let them drag you down
Keep both feet on the ground

You know we started with nothing
With our backs to the wall
We never said it was easy
We've got nothing at all

Just you and me against the world
That's how it's got to be
You can't escape the simple truth
This is our destiny
Surviving against the odds
Surviving against the odds

Against the odds
We're surviving against the odds
Surviving against the odds


04. Mists Of Avalon

In the mists of Avalon
She's waiting there for you
In the mists of Avalon
She's waiting there for you

With sword of power, forged in steel
Your desire to make the deal
Excalibur is yours to take
Deep inside the crystal lake

In the mists of Avalon
She's waiting there for you
The Lady of the Lake
You must be brave and true
Avalon, Avalon

Mystic power's in your hand
Take the blade and free the land
Unite the kingdom sea to sea
Excalibur, your destiny

In the mists of Avalon
She's waiting there for you
The Lady of the Lake
You must be brave and true
Avalon, Avalon

In your heart you must be true
Abuse the power she gave to you
Betray your vows, you'll stand alone
Excalibur, return to stone

In the mists of Avalon
She's waiting there for you
The Lady of the Lake
You must be brave and true
Avalon, Avalon

In the mists of Avalon
She's waiting there for you
In the mists of Avalon
She's waiting there for you
In the mists of Avalon
She's waiting there for you


05. Call To Arms

A telegram came today
It's taking me far away
Away from the ones I love
I put my faith in God above

We march toward the sound of distant guns
White fire lighting up the sky
We came to fight and die in fields of blood
We'll follow the call to arms

I will write you every day
Hope our love won't fade away
You give me strength to carry on
Until the final day is done

This hell, this hell is where we live and die
We fall, comrades by our side
We pray to make it through another day
To follow the call to arms

If I die, please don't forget me
If I live, I want to live free
We pray to God, these days will end
And bring us back safe to your arms

I've saved all your letters
I keep them pressed close to my heart
And they won't stop a bullet
They just keep me closer to you than apart

We live; we gotta live free
We die; remember me
We pray to make it through another day
To follow the call to arms

Telegram came today
It's taking me far away
Away from the ones I love
I put my faith in God above
A telegram came today
It's taking me far away
Away from the ones I love
I put my faith in God above

We march toward the sound of distant guns
White fire lighting up the sky
We came to fight and die in fields of blood
We'll follow the call to arms

I will write you every day
Hope our love won't fade away
You give me strength to carry on
Until the final day is done

This hell, this hell is where we live and die
We fall, comrades by our side
We pray to make it through another day
To follow the call to arms

If I die, please don't forget me
If I live, I want to live free
We pray to God, these days will end
And bring us back safe to your arms

They just keep me closer to you than apart

It's taking me far away
Away from the ones I love

06. Chasing The Bullet

I've been working like a dog
I need some time
I've been running around in circles
Out of my mind
I've got to pay my bills
And get away
I've had about enough
I'm not gonna stay

We're chasing, chasing the bullet
We're chasing, chasing the bullet
Chasing the bullet

I need a long vacation
A little bit of therapy
I'm not gonna get it here
Until I'm running free
The clock keeps ticking on the wall
I'm running out of time
Just staring into space
I need a sign

We're chasing, chasing the bullet
We're chasing, chasing the bullet
Chasing the bullet, bullet

Everybody's left
I'm on my own
I'm climbing up the walls
I wanna go home
The phone's ringing off the hook
The world is on the line
I'm running around in circles
Out of my mind

We're chasing, chasing the bullet
Chasing, chasing the bullet
We're chasing, chasing the bullet
Chasing, chasing the bullet
Chasing the bullet
Chasing the bullet
Chasing the bullet


07. Afterburner

I pull the throttle back
Ready to attack
Turn the bow around
Into the wind
Waiting for the rush
Engines on full thrust
We shoot a metal bird
Into the sky

Power screaming, burning
Afterburner, afterburner

Let the eagle's cry
Launch into the sky
Like birds of prey
They circle high above you
We on the mighty beast
The challenger unleashed
The messengers of death
Will come among you

Power screaming, burning
Afterburner, afterburner
Afterburner, afterburner

I pull the throttle back
Ready to attack
Like birds of prey
They circle high above you
Waiting for the rush
Engines on full thrust
The messengers of death
Will come among you

Power screaming, burning
Afterburner, afterburner
Afterburner, afterburner
Afterburner, afterburner
Afterburner, afterburner


08. When Doomsday Comes

Resistance is futile
There's nowhere to hide
We've ran out of options
We've fought with the time
We wait for tomorrow
To see if it comes
Defenses are pointless
It's inevitable

Where will we be
What will we do
When doomsday comes
When doomsday comes

It's just an illusion
Nothing is real
We're here for a moment
And then disappear

Where will we be
What will we do
When doomsday comes
When doomsday comes
When doomsday comes

Can't stop the feeling
Of being alone
Dark and foreboding
It's taking its toll
The end of tomorrow
Will nothing survive
To remember the feeling
Of being alive

Where will we be
What will we do
When doomsday comes

When doomsday comes


09. No Rest For The Wicked

You're like lambs to the slaughter
Stand in line and wait your turn
I am the destroyer
This thing, you quickly learn
Have no fear and come with me
Enter my reality
I am your hybrid curse
This is my universe

No rest for the wicked
No rest till the work is done
No rest for the wicked
No peace for the chosen ones

Take your chance and start to run
This game of death has just begun
If you die, I still exist
This will be your nemesis

No rest for the wicked
No rest till the work is done
No rest for the wicked
No peace for the chosen ones

Welcome to my sacrifice
Have you come to spend the night?
Have no fear and come with me
Enter my reality
In this place where darkness dwells
You will face your private hells
In my labyrinth of fire
I will build your funeral pyre

No rest for the wicked
No rest till the work is done
No rest for the wicked
No peace for the chosen ones
