01. Hung, Drawn And Quartered

Raising the gavel, pleasing the King
These proceedings shall come to a close
Guilty of treason, sins of the flesh
Your crimes have all been disclosed

Say what you will as your penalty's cast
Down on your judgement today
Let it be heard sentence is passed
The ultimate price you will pay

Sharpening to perfection, let justice be done
Crowd pleasing dissection, your table's reserved
This proclamation be served

You'll be Hung Drawn and Quartered
Punishment fitting the crimes
Hung Drawn and Quartered
Soon your last bell will chime

Off to the four winds, your parts be displayed
A warning for all to take heed
And to your heirs a corruption of blood
Seizing your assets and deeds

So in conclusion my thanks to you all
There's just one thing left to say
"Ladies and gent|emen, court is adjourned
Take him, be on your way"

Sharpening to perfection, blind justice be done
Crowd pleasing dissection, your table's reserved
This proclamation be served

You'll be Hung Drawn _and Quartered
Punishment fitting the crimes
Hung Drawn and Quartered
Soon your last bell will chime

Solo

You'll be Hung Drawn and Quartered
Punishment fitting the crimes
Hung Drawn and Quartered
Soon your last bell will chime

You'll be Hung Drawn and Quartered
This be your judgement today
Hung Drawn and Quartered
This is the price you will pay


02. Stalingrad

Out along the Volga
Minds set to kill
Men standing ground with iron will

Deathmatch approaching
Evil in stride
Never giving quarter to the other side

Gunfire and bloodshed
Shredding flesh and bone
As young men die in the killing zone

Through streets and factories
Fighting hand to hand
Be prepared to die for the Motherland

So hungry, so cold
But there can be no surrender
For creed and pride, take hold
Blood is the cry, we'll do or die
For Stalingrad
Stalingrad
It's the battle of Stalingrad

Two soldiers dying
Battered and blind
Enemies no more they've come to find

Mission forgotten
Now brothers in death
They hold each other abreast to the final breath

So hungry, so cold
But there can be no surrender
For creed and pride, take hold
So hungry, so cold
We're only following orders
We gave our hearts and souls
Brothers we fight, frozen in time
In Stalingrad
Stalingrad
Frozen in time
Stalingrad
Yeah all brothers we fight

The battle of Stalingrad...


03. Hellfire

Cursed, by the mind of evil
Fleeing from a torrent undreamed of
Horror worse than your blackest nightmare
Hiding from the antithesis of love

Sirens, tearing up the darkness
Blockbusters .....from the skies they pour
Hot winds, blowing through the burning streets
Firebombs giving way to crimes of war

One thousand dragons in the sky
Breathing flames from above

Hellfire ....... burns across the land
Hellfire .......

One giant column of flames, leaps from the furnace
No one has a prayer
Strafing runs and napalm bombs
Blacken the air

Black, is the color of vengeance
The innocent die as the flames get higher and higher
Buildings fall as the madness lingers
Feeding fuel on a giant funeral pyre

One thousand bombers in the sky -
The inferno from above

Hellfire ...... burns across the land
Hellfire .......

One giant column of flames, leaps from the furnace
No one has a prayer
Strafing runs and napalm bombs
Blacken the air

Solo

By the light of day, we see the ashes,
the beauty that once was
And in the end, there is no future less we learn
from the past and the evil that men cause

Hellfire ...... burns across the land
Hellfire ...... spawned by the hands of man
Hellfire ...... burning across the land
Hellfire .......spawned by the hands of man


04. Flash To Bang Time

Counting the seconds I could see myself
and it shook me right out of my mind
Staring right back at me, freezing the frame
I felt like a hostage in time

Caught somewhere between the spark and crash
Oooooww...... It happened in a flash

Streaks of light, rip the night
Exploding in my mind
The sound of spheres, splits my ears
Caught in the Flash to Bang Time

Way past the crosshairs of space and time
I can see a dimension away
A cosmic eruption of neon fog
In an instant it starts to decay

Just like a match turned to smoke and ash
Oooooww...... It happened in a flash

Streaks of light, rip the night
Exploding in my mind
The sound of spheres, splits my ears
Caught in the Flash to Bang Time

Floating on wreckage in black and white
thru a negative reality
Trapped in a mirror where day is night
and I have to wake up from this dream

Solo

Streaks of light, rip the night
Exploding in my mind
The sound of spheres, split my ears
Caught in the Flash to Bang Time

It happened in a flash
In the Flash to Bang Time


05. Shadow Soldiers

So cold and lonely it seems so long since someone was here
Following the shadows, with the sun till it disappears
Thousands of stone white crosses, a formation for all to see
With flags and flames, the ranks and the names of those who died to be free

The fire remains in our hearts all of our dreams made new
Etched in the flames of freedom, we're living on thru you

We're the Shadow Soldiers, laid to rest standing tall
Shadow Soldiers, in freedom you live
That's why we've given it all

Taken too soon from the lives we loved a misery I can not explain
Only when we feel your presence are we sure we did not die in vein

The fire remains in our hearts all of our dreams made new
Etched in the flames of freedom, are these words, oh so true
We're living on thru you

We're the Shadow Soldiers, laid to rest standing tall
Shadow Soldiers, in freedom you live
That's why we've given it all

Solo

The fire remains in our hearts all of our dreams made new
Etched in the flames of freedom, we're living on thru you

We're the Shadow Soldiers, laid to rest standing tall
Shadow Soldiers, in freedom you live
That's why we've given it all

Shallow Soldiers, laid to rest standing tall
Shadow Soldiers, in freedom you live
That's why we've given it all


06. Revolution

Inflation, starvation,
I need another occupation
Everybody's got a hand out now ...."hard |uck"
Hey buddy can you spare a dime
Can't take any more frustration,
Every day there's a new temptation
l gotta find a way to live ....."hard luck"
Why is it such a crime

We all need a little compensation
all I want is a real vacation
No money gotta pay the rent ......"hard luck''
The check is in the mail
But YOU get your tax deduction
outsourcing mass production
No work it's no surprise ..... "hard |uck"
It's all gone to hell

They wanna bleed us dry
I think we've had enough

Stand Up ..........Join the Revolution
Don't take it anymore
Stand Up .......... Join the Revolution
Right now ..........Join the Revolution

What's wrong, with this picture
The poor get poorer and the rich get richer
Banks ready to forclose ..... "hard luck"
Occupy the streets
Get up, take action, be a link in the chain reaction
it's time to unify ..... "stand up"
Get up on your feet

They're trying to bleed us dry
I think we've had enough

Stand Up .......... Join the Revolution
Don't take it anymore
Stand Up .......... Join the Revolution
Right now .........Join the Revolution

Solo

Stand Up ..........Join the Revolution
Don't take it anymore
Stand Up ..........Join the Revolution
Right now ..........Join the Revolution
Get Up .......... .. Join the Revolution
Don't take it anymore
Stand Up ..........Join the Revolution
Right now ........Join the Revolution !!!


07. Against The World

This is the fire, started so long ago
We've kept the flame and the smoldering embers below
Deep in our hearts, our music defines our lives
We carry it on, finding a way to survive

So this is the way it must be ...... it's Us Against the World
All inhibition set free ...... Us Against the World
Into the fire we're hurled...... lt's Us Against the World

Together we stand, thinking with just one mind
Branded and pierced, fists in the air tonight
Millions of lives, brought together by common ground
A family entwined, one global nation profound

So this is the way it must be ...... it's Us Against the World
All inhibition set free ...... Us Against the World
Into the fire we're hurled ...... lt's us Us Against the World

Solo

So this is the way it must be ...... it's Us Against the World
All inhibition set free ...... Us Against the World
And so our flag is unfurled ...... It's us Us Against the World
Against the World


08. Twist Of Fate

Everybody's got a line that they walk on
Somewhere between heaven and hell
A blank slate that the world gets to write on
Pick up the chalk and get out of your shell
Now and then, you know you got to ramble
Get out, out of your comfort zone
Sometimes ......you have to take a gamble
You might do better with the devil you know

There's a man sized hole in the ocean
Just a waiting there to suck you in
So before you go raising a commotion
Think twice about where you swim

So be careful what you wish for
You might get it, and then it's too late
The future's knocking at the front door
Beware now the Twist of Fate

Too late .........make no mistake
Beware now the Twist of Fate
Too late ......... what lies in wait
Out beyond the gates.......

Sometimes you put your hand in the fire
Take a chance and you don't get burned
Other times you get tripped by a wire
They watch you dance, it's a lesson learned

So be careful what you wish for
You just might get it, and then it's too late
The future's knocking at your front door
Beware now the Twist of Fate

Too late .........make no mistake
Beware now the Twist of Fate
Too late .........what lies in wait
Could be a Twist of Fate ........

Solo

Too late .........make no mistake
Beware now the Twist of Fate
Too late .........make no mistake
Beware now the Twist of Fate
Too late ........ what lies in wait
It's a Twist of Fate ........


09. The Quick And The Dead

A hand is winding the clock in your head
Tensions rise, push the needle to red
Pick up the tempo, it's getting late
You've got that inner need ...... accelerate

What now lies in between the hunter and the prey
Set sail, apart from the rest, let nothing get in your way

Speed and power, take command
You've got the world in your hand
Pull the trigger, move out ahead
There's two kinds of people....The Quick and the Dead

Cut loose the horses, right to the chase
Got to adrenalize, win this human race
Driving momentum, you take the lead
Gaining intensity, strive to succeed

What now lies in between the hunter and the prey
Set sail, apart from the rest, nothing will get in your way

Speed and power, take command
You've got the world in your hand
Pull the trigger, move out ahead
There's two kinds of people....The Quick and the Dead

Solo

What now lies in between the hunter and the prey
Set sail, apart from the rest, nothing will get in your way

Speed and power, take command
You've got the world in your hand
Pull the trigger, move out ahead
There's two kinds of people.... The Quick and the Dead

Speed and power, take command
You've got the world in the palm of your hand
Pull the trigger, move out ahead
There's two kinds of people.... The Quick and the Dead


11. The Galley

Pulling the weight up against the wind
is the plight of the galley slave
Chained to this cold bench, six to the oar
Sentenced to an early grave

With iron in our souls and fire in our wrists
Slicing the waves and the sea
Rotting below, they'll not let us go
Only mutiny or death set us free

Arms grow numb and the blood doth drip
to the beat of the drum, from the crack of the whip

We're damned, to the Galley
We're chained, to the Galley of pain
We're damned, to the Galley
We're slaves, chained to the Galley of pain

Narration:
"The salt made the oar handles like shark skin
and our lips we're cut to the gums
and you whipped us because: we could not row"
"Will you never let us go?"

Splintered and split, the hands of the doomed
endlessly toil by the hour
Bodies broken, shackled with hatred
as the soul grows sour

Off in the distance, the cry of the gulls
and the smell of approaching land
With our last ounce of strength, we pull to the shore
and dream to escape if we can

But Sirens attack, with their songs of love
Mermaids surround us as off we shove
Our arms still numb and the blood still drips
to the beat of the drum, from the crack of the whip

Damned, to the Galley
We're chained, to the Galley of pain
Damned, to the Galley
We're slaves, chained to the Galley of pain
We're rotting in the Galley hole

Solo

Damned, to the Galley
We're chained, to the Galley of pain
We're damned, to the Galley
We're slaves, chained to the Galley of pain

Only death can set us free
