Ten Hills 03:46
Ten Hills Four walls no freedom You been holding on too long One system trying to break you Behind the iron bars you roll And you run And you hide Two wings to fly And you rise And you break Till you finally see the light Ten hills to climb And you’re running with the night Ten miles to run Till you reach and cross that line Ain’t gonna hold you down Nothing’s gonna change it now Now you feel the hour’s coming You been thru it all before You approach the magic moment And you’re never gonna stall And you run And you hide Two wings to fly And you rise And you break Till you finally see the light Ten hills to climb And you’re running with the night Ten miles to run Till you reach and cross that line Ain’t gonna hold you down Nothing’s gonna change it now

Angels fall 05:29
Angels Fall Like the wings of Icarus Angels dark and light Rose on high victorious They tumble into night Sealing wax and stolen fletch Can't construct a faith on lies Hubris is the sun's embrace Death's pain the angel cries They will fall like a stone And their cries will darken the sky All will see their plight The end of might Angels fall To the ground The weak shall inherit the Earth They will just fade away No other day When Angels fall

Sacred ground Waiting standing at the crossroads Trying to go the right one Thousand prying eyes All looking at me Wayward feel the spirit call me And the earth my mother Tells me yet again To lay my head and Climb the highest of mountains Touch the sun when I rise Feel the power that holds me ‘cos I’m walking on sacred ground Walking on sacred ground Mystery of this life surrounds me Wanna find a reason Ear to the ground My mind is loaded I won’t listen to the preacher Telling me to hold back Gotta find my own way Leaving here to Climb the highest of mountains Touch the sun when I rise Feel the power that holds me ‘cos I’m walking on sacred ground Walking on sacred ground Tell me what is this I’m holding Ground I stand here and feel it moving

False paradise Eve sucks the life out of Adam Creeps like a snake on a cold grey floor Shylock longs for his pound of flesh The wolves run wild A million lives torn asunder The devil’s breath blows at your door The queen rubs salt in the king’s open wound Blood on the tiles And the fathers of greed Have a thief for every child Avarice the light In your false paradise Cain is the slayer of Abel Lost in a moment of treacherous plight Release the monster that dwells inside The stakes are high And the darkness thrives When the claw reaches high Create the divide In your false paradise Clutch at the ring of power Scepter high and a heart in stone Avarice flows thru your veins alive The price of a lie
5.
Satan’s Bride With the mist she rises Cold as the air and the falling wind She glides towards death’s passion Hunger in her eyes Victim of damnation Eyeing her love thru a window pane She longs for his blood like thunder Passion Feel it rising Longing to strike Satan’s bride Stands at the gates of Heaven Cold fire She prays for release from Hell Her heart is as black as the night Entombed in her grave of cold earth No sun no light forever again The mark of the one unholy Memory A life long past Slowly subsides

Left Behind 04:23
Left behind Unwise in mind Stormy days and sunken eyes Wild child unkind Way to go kill your kind No eyes to see Where the way will lead A sacrifice to set you free Why don’t you Tell me what it’s like When all your life has passed you by Tell me what you find To be the one who’s left behind One last sunrise Prelude to your dead-end road One train to nowhere Time to do what you’ve been told A broken mind In a ring of fire A sacrifice to save your soul Tell me what it’s like When all your life has passed you by Tell me what you find To be the one who’s left behind Buried by your hate When the day is done you’re cold and dry Tell me where you’ll hide When you’re the one who’s left behind

Other side of the medal I’m looking for wisdom Borne in a wave of misunderstanding One voice one name That tells the story Engraved in stone Do I ask too much Do you even care What is wrong with the life I lead What is wrong in what I believe What is wrong is you can’t see The other side of the medal Cold steel rain never ending Eyes open wide but seeing nothing And when you hide Behind the blindfold You can’t erase All the deeds you done All the sins you share What is wrong….. Sway in the wind Get away Change the colour but Not the paint Dry as a bone Try to fade Standing in line Till you waste Broken and tired Broken inside Wither and die Fade into night

Witchhunt 04:11
Witchhunt His struggle, his shame, his hate and lies His symbol on innocents hidden by night Crime, hate crime, his own He paints his world in greys to mirror his soul His misery needs company His pain needs release He takes his pleasure In smashing the peace This sad man, this lost man His anger his strength Searches for a reason in pain Go, go now, to find a rope to hang and flame to burn up and so he cries burn the witches tonight. We’re gonna burn the witches tonight He appears, through time, and time again Tearing through scapegoats with joy uncontained Crime, hate crime, his own Raping in hate disguising his soul His misery needs company His pleasure is your pain He takes your measure To start it all again This mad man, this sad man His anger his fall Searching expression in pain Go, go now, to find enough rope to hang and fire to maim and still he cries burn the witches tonight.. He’s gonna burn the witches tonight

Redemption 04:48
Redemption Dust on your trail Dry desert sky A vision like addiction Skin is burning dry Devil’s riding behind you On this barren ground Road is wearing you down Can’t keep running Storm is coming Now you’re worn and tired Like a wayward son Showing no redemption No redemption Sand filling your eyes Wind is howling loud No cross, no holy water All forsaken now Riding into the sunset On this shaken ground Road is wearing you down Can’t keep running Storm is coming Now you’re worn and tired Like a wayward son Showing no redemption No redemption

Fading 06:48
Fading Life like an open book Worn by the hands of time Tell me the story Of the scheme of things Let me know when the answer unfolds Gone like the wink of an eye Withered and I’m asking why Slip thru my fingers Like a grain of sand While the candle’s melting down Are we fading into sunlight Or just fading till the end of time Are we blowing in the four winds Are we fading into night Are we fading into night Stand at the water’s edge Staring out at the great divide The sons and the daughters Who came and went A universe of life
11.
Under my skin Suicide’s angel’s waiting Eternity seals my fate Numb but elated Each time leaves a stain Colour me crazy Colour me blind Stun me amaze me With all of your might I feel you closing In for the kill I feel you creeping Under my skin Deadly sweet caresses Alive still I’m dead I love you I hate you By blood we are wed Colour me crazy…… Empty promise A poison divine Senses on fire My desire Black widow lover You float you hover No patient mother Too weak to fight
