Tracks



01. Freewheel Burning

Music & lyrics by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, Glenn Tipton
Fast and furious we ride the universe
To carve a road for us that slices every curve in sight
We accelerate,no time to hesitate
This load will detonate whoever would contend its right

Born to lead at breakneck speed
With high octane, we're spitting flames
Freewheel burning

On we catapult, we're thrusting to the hilt
Unearthing every fault, go headlong into any dare
We don't accept defeat, we never will retreat
We blaze with scorching heat obliterations everywhere

Born to lead at breakneck speed
With high octane, we're spitting flames
Freewheel burning

Look before you leap has never been the way we keep our road is free
Charging to the top and never give in never stops the way to be
Hold on to the lead with all your will and concede you'll find there's life
With victory on high

Freewheel burning

02. Jawbreaker

Music & lyrics by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, Glenn Tipton
Deadly as the viper
Peering from its coil
The poison there is coming to the boil

Ticking like to time bomb
The fuse is running short
On the verge of snapping if it's caught

And all the pressure that's been building up
For all the years it bore the load
The cracks appear, the frame starts to distort
Ready to explode
Jawbreaker

Crouching in the coner
Wound up as a spring
Piercing eyes that flash are shimmering

Muscles all contorted
Claws dug in the dirt
Every ounce of fibre on alert

And all the pressure that's been building up
For all the years it bore the load
The cracks appear, the frame starts to distort
Ready to explode
Jawbreaker

03. Rock Hard Ride Free

Music & lyrics by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, Glenn Tipton
Get a grip on the action
Moving heaven and earth
Gotta get a reaction
Push for all that you're worth

No denying we're going against the grain
So defiant they'll never put us down

Rock Hard Ride Free
all day, all night
Rock Hard Ride Free
all your life

Tough as steel stop at nothing
Look at fate in the face
Don't take no for an answer
Grab the lead in the race

No denying we're going against the grain
So defiant they'll never put us down

Rock Hard Ride Free
all day, all night
Rock Hard Ride Free
all your life

Rock hard with a purpose
Got a mind that won't bend
Die hard resolution
That is true to the end

No denying we're going against the grain
No denying we're going against the grain

Rock Hard Ride Free
all day, all night
Rock Hard Ride Free
all your life

04. The Sentinel

Music & lyrics by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, Glenn Tipton
Along deserted avenues
Steam begins to rise
The figures primed and ready
Prepared for quick surprise

He's watching for a sign
His life is on the line

Sworn to avenge
Condemn to hell
Tempt not the blade
All fear the Sentinel

Dogs whine in the alleys
Smoke is on the wind
From deep inside its empty shell
A cathedral bell begins

Ringing out its toll
A storm begins to grow

Sworn to avenge
Condemn to hell
Tempt not the blade
All fear the Sentinel

Amidst the upturned burned-out cars
The challengers await
And in their fists clutch iron bars
With which to seal his fate

Across his chest in scabbards rest
The rows of throwing knives
Whose razor points in challenged tests
Have finished many lives

Now facing one another
The stand-off eats at time
Then all at once a silence falls
As the bell ceases its chime

Upon this sign the challengers
With shrieks and cries rush forth
The knives fly out like bullets
Upon their deadly course
Screams of pain and agony
Rent the silent air
Amidst the dying bodies
Blood runs everywhere
The figure stands expressionless
Impassive and alone
Unmoved by this victory
And the seeds of death he's sown

Sworn to avenge condemn to hell
Tempt not the blade all fear the Sentinel.

05. Love Bites

Music & lyrics by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, Glenn Tipton
When you feel safe when you feel warm
That's when I rise that's when I crawl
Gliding on mist hardly a sound
Bringing the kiss evils abound

In the dead of the night
Love bites, love bites
In the dead of the night
Love bites

Into your room where in deep sleep
There you lie still to you I creep
Then I descend close to your lips
Across you I bend you smile as I sip
Now you are mine in my control
One taste of your life
And I own your soul
Softly you stir gently you moan
Lust's in the air wake as I groan

In the dead of the night
Love bites, love bites
In the dead of the night
Love bites

Love bites you invites you
To feast in the night
Excites you delight you
It drains you to white
Live bites

You knew at first sight
You'd enjoy my attack
That with my first bite
There'd be no turning back
So come in my arms I strike any hour
I will return to trap and devour

In the dead of the night
Love bites, love bites

06. Eat Me Alive

Music & lyrics by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, Glenn Tipton
Wrapped tight around me like a second flesh hot skin
Gling my body as the ecstasy begins
Your wild vibrations got me shooting from the hip
Crazed and insatiable let rip

Eat me alive

Sounds like on animal panting to the beat
Groan in the pleasure zone gasping from the heat
Gut-wrenching frenzy that deranges every joint
I'm gonna force you at gun point

To eat me alive

Bound to deliver as you give and I collect
Squealing in passion as the rod steel injects
Lunge to the maximum spread-eagled to the wall
You're well equipped to take it all

So eat me alive.

07. Some Heads Are Gonna Roll

Music & lyrics by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, Glenn Tipton
You can look to the left and look to the right
But you will live in danger tonight
When the enemy comes he will never be heard
He'll blow your mind and not say a word

Blinding lights--flashing colors
Sleepless nights...
If the man with the power
Can't keep it under control

Some heads are gonna roll
Some heads are gonna roll

The power-mad freaks who are ruling the earth
Will show how little they think you're worth
With animal lust they'll devour your life
And slice your word to bits like a knife

One last day burning hell fire
You're blown away...
If the man with the power
Can't keep it under control

Some heads are gonna roll
Some heads are gonna roll

Know what it's like
When you're taken for granted
There goes your life
It's so underhanded

Oh, come on!

If the man with the power
Can't keep it under control

Some heads are gonna roll
Some heads are gonna roll

08. Night Comes Down

Music & lyrics by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, Glenn Tipton
In the last rays of the setting sun
And the past days, that's where our memories run

And all of those times
Still race though my mind
I'm shattered inside to find

When the night comes down
And I'm here all alone
When the night comes down
And there's no place to go

Call me and I'll wait till the summer, you never understood
And I will wait forever for a love that's only good

As the light starts to dim
The fear closes in
And the nightmares begin

When the night comes down
And I'm here all alone
When the night comes down
And there's no place to go

Oh no you won't be there tomorrow
Oh no say it isn't true
Can't take this pain and sorrow
Oh can't you see my heart is broken in two

When the night comes down
And I'm here all alone
When the night comes down
And there's no place to go

09. Heavy Duty

Music & lyrics by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, Glenn Tipton
I know you like it hot
Love to writhe and sweat
You think that this feels good
You ain't felt nothing yet

Red-hot licks
In the palm of my hand
Feel your baby quake
As we hit the promised land

I'm heavy duty
I'm heavy duty

We'll rise onside ya
Till the power splits your head
We're gonna rock ya
Till your metal hunger's fed

Let's all join forces
Rule with an iron hand
And prove to all the world
Metal rules the land

We're heavy duty
We're heavy duty
So come on let's tell the world.

10. Defenders Of The Faith

Music & lyrics by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing, Glenn Tipton
We are Defenders of the Faith
We are Defenders of the Faith

11. Turn On Your Light

Why do I have to wait so long
Before you come into my life again
Seems as though forever until
I can be here by your side till then

I think you feel the same way too
You know you make my dreams come true
If you'll just turn on your light
Let me see it shining through the night

When I'm far away from here
I'll hold all the memories so clear
If I only have the choice
I would stay so let me hear your voice

I think you feel the same way too
You know you make my dreams come true
If you'll just turn on your light
Let me see it shining through the night.

12. Heavy Duty/Defenders Of The Faith

I know you like it hot
Love to writhe and sweat
You think that this feels good
You ain't felt nothing yet

Red-hot licks
In the palm of my hand
Feel your baby quake
As we hit the promised land

I'm heavy duty
I'm heavy duty

We'll rise onside ya
Till the power splits your head
We're gonna rock ya
Till your metal hunger's fed

Let's all join forces
Rule with an iron hand
And prove to all the world
Metal rules the land

We're heavy duty
We're heavy duty
So come on let's tell the world

We are Defenders of the Faith
We are Defenders of the Faith
