THE GATE

FREELANCE MAN

You are a nothing and deceased You ain't alive at all Don't try to be sensible I'll bang your head on the wall I got no time to be locked in I'm a dangerous son You're always second I'm the number one Hail the battle Take a bow Monumental Gonna stand my ground I'm gonna stand my ground 'cause I'm a freelance man I ain't walking I ain't talking tonight Heart of steel - twisted feel - I'm no easy ride You will never ever lock me up tight 'cause I'm a freelance man And I'm breaking and I'm taking tonight No mistake - don't dictate - I'm no easy ride Don't you never ever lock me up tight I'm always doing what I lease I'm always having a ball You make me contemptible I'll bury you in a hole It's better you to be locked in I'll be a terrible guard You'll never matter I'm still the number one Hail the battle, ... 'cause I'm a freelance man, ... Turn on your brain before you talk It was no secret what I am You rue the day - you've been done over I'm just a freelance man Hail the battle, ... 'cause I'm a freelance man, ...

WAY OF LIFE

I've been away from home Was outta sight No other change has come Who let the boredom in We got our rockin' rights We'll overcome The mirror never lies We'll show 'em how it's done We always dress in black To be unkind We always dress in black With you in mind It's the way of life we live - you know where we are coming from It's the way of life we live in - and we're not wrong 'cause it's the way of life we live - you know where we are coming from It's the way of life we live in - we are the strong We never will deceive Take no double-talk And all the fat cats bull Don't like the way we walk They spit behind our backs Unwelcomed class But it's way down deep They wanna be like us We always dress in black, ... It's the way of life we live, ... Time is ticking by For you life is such a lie You clipped your wings to fly You could have had it all - BUT! Work nine to five Finish fifty-five Only born to die You ever been alive? We always dress in black, ... It's the way of life we live, ...

NO LIMITS

One life - never been a riddle Black nights - live it to the max It's all extremely done No way - to colonise the middle Ride hard - desperadoes at your back Under a blood red sun In this world - up to us We stand or we fall - yeah We got no limits - no hideaway We got no limits - live today We got no limits - the way to stay We got no limits - no limits all the way Gear up - life is what we make it Rock hard - shaft it to the top We've only just begun Sun's up - we're gonna do some shakin' Break out - we give it all we got Make way 'cause here we come In this world we decide To answer the call - yeah We got no limits, ... Power 'n' riches 'n' rank Mean nothing at all Render the game to the en Once and for all - once and for all - yeah We got no limits, ... We got no limits - no hideaway We got no limits - live today We got no limits - the way to stay We got no limits Ev'rybody live the life

WITH A VENGEANCE

Now I'm back with a vengeance Didn't want to stay - to stay away from you No illegal fun - you had me hypnotised Cheap and on the run - a bad reputation Now the time has come - to take the blame away To fly the clouds so high And touch the sun Into a desperate sky And the nightmare's begun Now I'm back with a vengeance I am back with a vengeance Never been my style - to hide away from you Like a wayward child - you tried to paralyse And to cage my heart - bad recommendation Now the fear has gone - there's zero left to say To fly the clouds so high And touch the sun Into a desperate sky Wait for the terror to come Now I'm back with a vengeance I am back with a vengeance To fly the clouds so high And touch the sun Into a desperate sky So the horror has won Now I'm back with a vengeance I am back with a vengeance, ...

ONE STEP TO FATE

Now it's time to break the spell Future's written down Is it tears or happiness What's your fate - time will tell Is it left or is it right Elect the road you'll take Will you see the other side Take a ride - take a ride to see There's no excuses if it's badness So many ways it can go wrong And if it happens to be gladness Then you can say that you have won That you have won One step to fate - why don't you follow me One step to fate - I know it's near One step to fate - no power's over me One step to fate - it only takes one step to fate The time is now it's make or break The turning of the tide This is the way it has to be Live your life to the edge Could be bad you know it might The mission's under way Now you've reached the other side Open up - open up your eyes No more excuses if it's badness So many ways that have gone wrong Not always happens to be gladness Which ever way you know you've won You know you've won One step to fate, ... With a touch of sadness Dreams can fade away Laughter is my passion Never cried away One step to fate, ...

BACKSTREET LONER

I lit another cigarette She did a little pirouette No friend of mine - a dollar's fine A cruel world - when you cross this line The masquerade is over The mask - it fades away Like a backstreet loner No need to be afraid In Johnny Nofinger's bar I travelled so far I've been to all those places Just a shot on the bar A cheap cigar And all the dead-eyed faces Hold down the fever Don't you cross the line Hold down the fever Stop yourself in time Never step on the ride Just take my advice I've suffered all the seasons Feel it coming again I paid the price There's no rhyme - no reason Hold down the fever, ... When masquerades are over The show will fade away You'll be a backstreet loner You better be afraid Hold down the fever, ...

RAISE THE CROWN

So tonight is something Something you can take Leave behind your sorrows Give yourself a break It's up to you - you're getting Pleasure outta strife You're gonna be somebody So get yourself alive So now it's one for all And all for one We run on overload So hold on tight There's a whole lotta runnin' - when we own this town And a whole lotta shoutin' - when we raise the crown There's a whole lotta runnin' - be it day or night So beware of the power - when it burns your eyes We are the one and only The only are insane Mentalised and tuned in Never be the same Paralytic decompression Needles in the bones It's the one obsession Going on and on So now it's one for all, ... There's a whole lotta runnin', ... Another crazy town - a crazy life We bleed our souls for you - run the rivers dry We quake the houses down - be it dark or light We sacrifice the day - electrify the night So now it's one for all, ... There's a whole lotta runnin', ...

MANHUNT

We're straining at the leash We smell the human meat The only way for us to go The order of the pack Command is kill - attack Obey the master's law Bad temper rules our minds The hunt is on this time We can't wait No way to stay alive The prey is finalised It's total genocide We're on the manhunt - we keep on pushing We're on the manhunt We're on the manhunt - we keep on pushing We're on the manhunt We train our deadly pride No way for man to hide We're always aiming for your neck This is your final day Just believe and pray We're feasting on your eyes Bad temper rules our minds, ... We're on the manhunt - we keep on pushing We're on the manhunt We're on the manhunt - we keep on pushing We're on the manhunt - this ain't no suicide We're on the manhunt, ... What is the victim's face - not us who's wrong The terror of the chase - can't be undone We turned the game around - not us who's wrong You made us go to ground - can't be undone We're on the manhunt, ... We're on the manhunt - we keep on pushing We're on the manhunt - this ain't no suicide We're on the manhunt - we keep on pushing We're on the manhunt - try to hide - no way to run

RATED X

Blazing steel on the horizon In the desert Forces like the ultimate Poseidon The arrival Although it burns your eyes The government denies Rated X Not allowed to know It's rated X No files to show The men in power call you liars It's suppression They say you never saw it so forget it All oppression they're passing on the lies The bunkers full of files Rated X You better not care It's rated X The facts are somewhere out there Can we ever trust each other To believe in They keep the information under cover It's not needed The legacy is born They classify us all Rated X Not allowed to know It's rated X No files to show Rated X You better not care It's rated X The facts are somewhere out here Rated X It's rated X

I'M A REBEL

They say I won't make it to the top of the hill Won't take the fruit of a tree And ev'rybody says I'm out for the kill They're all laughing at me They're all laughing at me I'm a rebel - rebel - don't you just know it I'm a rebel - rebel And they're all laughing at me They say I'm a danger to the public and all I only wish they would see I'm just a product of a screwed up world - but they're all They're all laughing at me But they're all laughing at me I'm a rebel - rebel - don't you just know it I'm a rebel - rebel - don't you just know it I'm a rebel - rebel But they're all laughing at me Never ever wash my old blue jeans And brush the smile off my face But still I'm a member of the Human race - human race - human race - human race I'm a rebel - rebel - don't you just know it I'm a rebel - rebel - don't you just know it I'm a rebel - rebel - don't you just know it I'm a rebel - rebel And they're all laughing at me I'm a rebel

AZRAEL

Long ago - in another life I was innocent - just a child Transformed my brain into an evil thing Now I'm a creature of the night I'm a shadow in the darkness and I'm watching you Though you can't see me I am always at your side When I'm on your heels - you see how it feels To sense the curse of Azrael In the night - I'll come to you Your life belongs to me I wake you up - you stare at me I'm the last thing that you'll ever see The panic in your eyes that I have hungered for Shows me you have realised the truth Death comes to the dying - and before your eyes grow dim The last word on your lips is Azrael I will destroy your dreams I will destroy your mind I will destroy your soul And then I'll take your life Sometimes I remember the life I had before I asked myself was it just a dream When I close my eyes I see an ocean flowing blood And in my sleep I hear those fearful screams So lock your doors - remove the keys I doesn't matter if you leave or stay Wherever you go I'll be expecting you Your resistance is the spice that I crave When you imagine there's a movement in the shadows The light around you is weakens more and more Prepare for the arrival of the uninvited guest The angel of the darkness - Azrael I will destroy your dreams I will destroy your mind I will destroy your soul And then I'll take your life, ...
