1. Holy

Raised from the glowing ashes of cauldron iron The Phoenix arose from the sanctum of metal Emerging into the light So many hard times So many bad lies A man of steel You know I’m real Ev’rything I do I’m taking all control - it’s my heart You know it’s how I feel So stick it in your mind - now you’re mine Time - it’s time I’m taking over And crank it up in overdrive I’ll tell you why You know I’m holy So fucking holy - raise your hands You know I’m holy So fucking holy - pain and pride So many places So many aces I made a curse I gave you birth Ah - glorious metal times The master of our lives - never died A special kind of force Together no remorse - you’ll be mine BRIDGE CHORUS Burning on overload Legends won’t die No cross - no burdens to control No asking why BRIDGE CHORUS The master never dies CHORUS

2. Raiders Of Beyond

Raiders gonna open up the stargate The planetary call is here to stay Galactic energy’s in all directions A ticket for a ride on a time machine Now the gate is open solar wide Million kingdoms are inside Raiders of beyond - energise Raiders of beyond - speed of light Raiders of beyond - blinding white Raiders of beyond - blaze eternity Systematical declining forces ‘n’ gravity has lost ‘n’ gone for good Hypersonic engines scream for mercy The elements will bear and take the load BRIDGE CHORUS

3. Shout It Out

Why are you so frightened - we’re getting in the mood Body breaking volume - we are loud and rude Laser piercing lighting - megasonic sound The first day of your lesson - upheaval in the ground We’re forging straight ahead now - it’s not a dream Never ever lose the power - we’re as hard as steel Don’t you feel the fire - the burning in your soul Just come and join the fantasy - it will make you free So cut the crap out - it’s for you Feel so damn proud - of this rocking crew We’ll break the world down - tear up all the rules Reality is clear now - the future is for you So shout it out - just let it out So shout it out - as loud as you can So shout it out - just let it out So shout it out - as loud as we all can Now’s the final showdown - it’s time to be released Our weapons are so deadly - we’re armed up to the teeth Electrostatic soundwaves - you cannot hide Gonna execute our metal shock - straight between the eyes BRIDGE CHORUS Shout - shout - shout - shout Shout - shout - shout - shout CHORUS

4. Recall The Sin

Many years ago My heart and soul was full of fire Breaking heads - hit and run And the sun was brighter So wild and reckless Cared about no law and order We used to ram - the black and whites They called a six-one-niner Those were my glory days Just bad-boys-crazy-ways My wild-man-holy-times I always shot on sight And I recall the sin And I recall the sin In many sleepless nights I found the dream I’m missing Kicking ass - living fast Been living in a prison Time to change the colours Sweep away the madness Here I come - back for good Say good-bye to sadness BRIDGE CHORUS

5. Thunder In The Tower

Well, the lightning flashed at midnight And the dogs did howl along You don’t believe it - unless you’ve seen it It was the night the thunder broke There is no more creation No room for good - no hope You better cry for salvation - as The reaper dangled by the rope A scream for help - the morning after They’d equalised the score And in their minds - there’s only laughter A smile - without a cause And there was thunder in the tower As the cat crept out There was thunder in the tower There’s no escape - no doubt It’s been the night the birds were silent And the town was deadly still A curling lip - an icy grip ‘n’ bony fingers that can kill Assembling in the tower The payment bloody high They tried to cheat their final hour He’s gonna get them eye to eye BRIDGE And there was thunder in the tower Screaming silence in the air There was thunder in the tower Awesome power ev’rywhere And there was thunder in the tower They didn’t care it’s right or wrong There was thunder in the tower And the reaper came along CHORUS

6. Back Off

Respect our rotten life Better not be hypnotised this time You talk a heavy load A mental overdose you’re slime Open up your mind Welcome to the gates of nowhere Freedom’s not for sale We are the right - ‘cause we are the law So back off - power in a minute Back off - bastard hard and combat high Back off - power is a winner Back off - don’t you cross this line We’re true and metalised These crazy territorial nights ‘n’ red-hot burning roads We are the predators of life BRIDGE So back off - gotta be a limit Back off - bastard hard and combat high Back off - power is a winner Back off - don’t you cross this line CHORUS

7. Friends Will Be Friends

A voice in the back - the lies and the fears No colour but black - the truth disappears Just by the look in your eyes I can tell That your honour is gone - you’re caught in confusion and pain Mysterious sounds - hidden in ice Your lying is found - protective disguise No one is braking the wheels are forsaken In sheer overdrive - diamonds and rust Breaking their lives - I burst them to dust Friends will be friends Down on this dirty road Friends will be friends One for all The meaning is wrong - there’s no reason why The logic is gone - it’s hard to deny BRIDGE Friends will be friends Down on this dirty road Friends will be friends All for one - one for all CHORUS No one is braking the wheels are forsaken Diamonds and rust - I burst them to dust CHORUS

8. State Run Operation

Welcome to the madness Of symptomatic rule It’s deadly and it’s reckless Another one is fooled Miniature devices The ears within the walls Stiletto knives and cameras To document it all And the stream of data flows - endless Police protection grows - it’s here to stay Another state run - state run operation Another state run - state run operation Under observation Disloyalty is out Covert operations That’s what it’s all about Hidden automatics Activate the fuse Forbidden terror tactics The system is in use BRIDGE CHORUS Finger pointing accusations - they deny Governmental legislation - why Immovable and firm positions - don’t defy Supremacy and allegations - part of life CHORUS

9. Danger

Fearing the day - hiding the light My mind is shocked with fever Evil will play - night after night They are the soul receivers Yeah, they are strangers in the night Yeah, they’re endangering your life Drinking your tears - embracing your fears Danger - the lair is hard to find Danger - so keep that in your mind Ripping me up - tearing me down My soul is crying „action!“ Terror is king but I got the crown I’ll start a chain reaction BRIDGE Danger - a madness in the air Danger - dimensions ev’rywhere Whispering names on lonely roads With eyes camouflaged in shadows They stalk the earth in silent packs No time to die tomorrow CHORUS

10. Ride The Storm

Thunder roads in action Horizon’s all the same That’s the big attraction Come on join the game Brothers out of time ‘n’ chasing down the line Mighty eagles rage into the sky Ride the storm - now and tomorrow Faster and so far Ride the storm - no hidden sorrows ‘n’ aiming for the stars The colour black’s for leather Metal engines howl ‘n’ ride the storm together Tailpipes gonna growl BRIDGE CHORUS We ride the iron horses ‘n’ freedom in the heart We never will surrender We are the breed apart CHORUS

11. Cut Me Out

Night after night Day after day Hours and seconds to go Dying of fright Nothing to say I’ve got no money to show Picking at the bits and pieces of this puzzle game Educated reasons why I have to wear this shame Hey you - cut me out Come back - and put my money down Hey you - what have I done to you Don’t - don’t spread the news around Dreams in my sleep Are tales from the cards I see the final countdown Reptiles that creep Pushing me hard Making me go one more round Just another night - begging for mercy What can I do - pleading ‘n’ searching In the night CHORUS BRIDGE CHORUS
