1. Man And Machine

ALERT - ALERT - ALERT GENERAL ALERT IN SECTION NINE UNACCEPTABLE HUMAN SPECIMENS HAVE ENTERED THE AREA DRONES TO BATTLE STATIONS - DRONES TO BATTLE STATIONS DO YOU COMPLY - DO YOU COMPLY COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN - COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN Man and machine - the evil of a dream It’s a necessary cut of the production zone Man and machine - it’s a dissident team And it’s gonna be all over when a fuse is blown We humans fight against the cyber trash Machines are loaded high Computerized - the tide we have to turn Robotic clash on section nine We’re not gonna slave away Machines are not the law And we’re gonna praise the day When humans take it all CHORUS Rise up and fight inside the standby-zone The sentinels electrified Man to man against the fatal drones We escalate to DEFCON FIVE BRIDGE CHORUS

2. Private Eye

I’m always watching you - my secret eye No chance to hide away - I’m not that blind No matter what you do - it’s watching you I’ll be your second mind - controlling you So don’t forget - you’re not alone I will command you - one and all ‘cause I’m your private eye Your private eye ‘cause I’m your private eye Your private eye Electro magnify - the metal eye Corruption’s rectified - a legal crime Invading privacy - with hidden force Imprinted on the screen - and no remorse BRIDGE CHORUS I will be everywhere - eye in the sky All actions will be saved - no matter why I will manipulate - defy and lie Recordings will go on - until you die BRIDGE CHORUS

3. The Dawn Of The Gods

Tons of steel - it’s how we feel It’s resurrection Million ways to win the race We always tease you Boiling sound - solid ground Is what we stand for All the sins will take you in We always please you Hail the metal Law for one and all Hail the metal It’s the dawn of the gods We’re always fighting for the holy man Dawn of the gods - raising high and high It’s the dawn of the gods We’re always fighting for the holy man Dawn of the gods - breaking up the sky Blazing fire - we walk the wire The right direction Crazy days is how it pays We’ll never lose you So keep in mind - eruptive signs Of insurrection We’re here to serve what you deserve We’ll never fool you BRIDGE CHORUS The fear and the terror of mutant mercenary filth Deceivers of truth - betrayers of faith Screaming crimson skies bursting forth their energies Searing scorching flames - the dawning of the gods BRIDGE CHORUS

4. Silent Cry

Dancing in the daylight - all just been so fine And heartbeats keep on going - all the time Don’t you hear the calling - don’t you see the falling All the cries Can’t you get the warning - how the pain is dawning See the signs When eyes don’t see - and hands don’t touch It’s all been a pack of lies When hearts don’t feel - it’s all too much It’s just the sound of a silent cry Just the sound of a silent cry Crying in the moonlight - darkness closing in I fear for the heartbeats - wondering If we come together - is it so much better I don’t know Why are we not trying - ending all the crying Giving hope BRIDGE CHORUS

5. Like A Lion

I had a dream today - it’s telling me It’s time to leave the older days This life goes on for you and me Gonna pay the price No matter how - no matter what I do So now I’ll decide Just take me to a better world The only way I know Sometimes I think That’s not enough No matter how - I’m gonna die like a lion I wanna cry - I wanna cry like a lion I see the picture now - on different days There is no need for other ways No more a fool - I’ve got the tools For the here and now Another face - another fearless heart To rise from the crowd BRIDGE CHORUS

6. Black Heart

Black is the colour - icy and cold It is the power - forever wrong All the burning inside - all the other rotten ways Blinded minds - all the time - it happens all again You know we all need some friends To save this broken world The freedom we will defend Don’t need a devil - don’t need a devil inside Black heart - dark mind The seeds of evil will grow in time Black heart - dark mind Hail the devil and bless the crime Over and over - the stories’ been told Whole generations - have been sold All the wrong directions - paid with innocence and fear Danger times - twisted crimes - revenge is always near BRIDGE CHORUS Hail - hail,..... CHORUS

7. Network Nightmare

You’re gonna drown out While you’re within the net A megatronic murder Upon the world wide web My mind is „read all memory“ Your access is denied A massive infestation Infected RAM inside I smile - while I’m infecting your veins My style - I’m Dr. No I’m delivering the blow I’m your network nightmare I’m your network nightmare I’ll powersurge the virus Directly to your brains A gigabotic meltdown Manic - cold - insane I activate the relay The master of the code Expect hard driven lessons All systems overload BRIDGE CHORUS

8. Raise The Crown

I don’t wanna be another retro-man I don’t wanna be no part of your plans I don’t wanna be no diamond king I just wanna pull the detonation pin I won’t give up a life of sin You’ll never tame the beast within You can’t abuse what I’ve got in here My animal instinct is what you fear And I howl - and I prowl I am a raptor in time And I howl - and I prowl I am unbroken - creature of the wild I’ve got an animal instinct I’ve got an animal instinct I don’t wanna lead nor even dominate Not a top-dog leader that only devastates You know I’m free and I stand so proud My animal anger - I shout it aloud BRIDGE CHORUS Animal - animal - animal - animal - instinct Animal - animal - animal - animal – instinct CHORUS

9. Dancing With An Angel

Take my hand before I go We’ll never be alone Look at all the lucky days And places we have gone Let me say a single word A million other ways But all I wanna see is now A smile upon your face Like I’m dancing - dancing with an angel Like I’m dancing - never danced before Like I’m dancing - dancing with an angel Like I’m dancing - a dream I’m dancing on Gave my heart into your hands We are evermore How can I repay you now For all the years and more All I know so deep inside We will never fade So let me take you by the hand And lead you to the dance CHORUS Still I’m dancing through a dream with an angel I don’t wanna lose a part of your heart Still you give me all the worlds I believe in And I know that we will never part CHORUS

10. Hard To Be Honest

I played the game - I broke the rules The truth is always cruel It’s not for me to win or lose This one will be on you Sometimes it’s hard to be tough And play this way so rough I give it straight - you know why I want it all - I’ll take it all I don’t know why - don’t wanna hide Don’t want forever lie Now it’s time for all of us So let’s break free No matter what you say You know it’s hard to be honest It’s hard not to lie You know it’s hard to be honest It’s hard not to lie All hail the truth and damn the lies There’s so much we can do Now it’s on you to deal the cards The joker breaks the rules So take a look at what you see The mirror never lies The time has come to say farewell So leave it all behind you all BRIDGE CHORUS No matter how - you found it out It’s time to give the truth I’ve seen it all - in black or white The hardest thing to do BRIDGE CHORUS

11. Unknown Traveler

I’ve passed the lonely gates of Babylon I’ve touched the ancient pyramids I’ve seen the golden face of Taj Mahal I’ve felt the sea of Atlantis I’ve counted bricks along the China Wall I’ve rode the Slopes Of Kathmandu I’ve tasted all the rocks of Everest To the mountains of the moon I’ve seen it all Through time and matter No more retreat and no more defeat So hear the call The final battle I’m under attack - I want to come back I am the unknown traveler - always on the move I am the unknown traveler I am the unknown traveler - always on the move I am the unknown traveler I’ve joined the table back in Camelot Looked for the wood for Merlin’s wand I’ve traveled places I’ve been everywhere I’ve traveled times so on and on BRIDGE CHORUS
