Death Tone

(R. Friedman/ J. DeMaio)

Ridin' on to wheels
Chainsuit on my heels
Sittin' on leather
Ridin' on steel

Put my shades on
Hair blows in the wind
I give some square the finger
Now he won't look again, no he won't

Prechorus:
Now, you were sittin' home
And i got sent to nam
I went to the big house
You just worked at job

Chorus:
Hear me calling
Can't you hear my death tone
Hear me calling
Can't you hear my death tone
Hear me ride
On into the night
Pull along side
If you're looking for a fight, yeah !

My social workers
Got me on a chain
Keeps me out of jail
So the paper prints his name, yes it does, and he likes it

Unemployment checks
Run out next week
It won't be very long
'Til i'm back on the streets again

Prechorus:
Now, you were sittin' home
And i was sent to nam
I went to the big house
You just worked at job

Chorus:
Hear me calling
Can't you hear my death tone
Hear me calling
Can't you hear my death tone
Hear me ride
On into the night
Pull along side
If you're looking for a fight

Death tone
Death tone
Gonna ride on my death tone
Yes i am
I'm gonna ride on you baby ! Oh !

Metal Daze
(J. DeMaio)

I hear the sound
In a metal way
I feel the power
Rolling on the stage
Cause only one thing
Really sets me free
Heavy metal
Loud as it can be

Baby i was born to play music
I am a man with a screaming guitar
There's a light in a middle of the stage
In a minute i'll be wearing it all
I don't know another way of living
Baby i don't really care
Give me a pair of chains, aim the whiplash at me
The girls i'd love to share

Chorus:
Heavy metal, metal daze
Heavy metal, heavy metal daze
Heavy metal, heavy metal daze

Living like there's no tomorrow
Yeah, i could resist we're all on the edge
This is: man you really graft it
This band: a social waste
Well, we all got arms made of metal
And our glories are no deblock
And if i don't hear the sound of metal
I go into shock !

Chorus:
Heavy metal, metal daze
Heavy metal, heavy metal daze
Heavy metal, heavy metal daze
Heavy metal, heavy metal daze
Heavy metal

So mister D. J.
Play just one for me
You know the one
With the crushin' and the screams
Cause only one thing
Really sets me free
Heavy metal
Loud as it can be
Chorus:
Heavy metal, metal daze
Heavy metal, heavy metal daze
Heavy metal, heavy metal daze
Heavy metal, heavy metal daze
Heavy metal
Loud as it can be

Fast Taker
(R. Friedman/J. DeMaio)

Mama is having troubles,
It always comes from me
Your daddy said that drink is
Is not yours for the free
They tell you i'm a loser
'Cause i like see 'em breed
But truth is in the mirror
Is one thing never seen

I sing yeah
Long time ago
You tried to tell me, son
People tried to hold on
I said no no, no no

No, i don't mind them saying
That you should be praying
For me, fast taker
Right here's where i'm staying
Life's a game i play
For keeps, fast taker, fast taker, fast taker
Take it away

Only sixteen
For more than not a girl
Old enough
For a trip around the world
Pick you up on friday
When daddy goes to sleep
Bring you back on sunday
When he's watching "merry granma" on t.v.

Oh yeah, he won't see me

Now do it right with music
Then you learn how to abuse it
All night, fast taker
Right here's where i'm staying
Life's a game i play
For peace, fast taker, fast taker, fast taker
Take it away

Mama is having troubles,
It always comes from me
Your daddy said that drink is
Is not yours for the free
They tell you i'm a loser
'Cause i like see 'em breed
But truth is in the mirror
Is one thing never seen

A long time ago
You tried to tell me son
People tried to hold on
I said no no, no no

No i don't mind them saying
That you should be praying
For me, fast taker
Right here's where i'm staying
Life's a game i play
For keeps, fast taker, fast taker, fast taker
Take it away

Shell Shock
(R. Friedman/J. DeMaio)

I don't know

Well, there's no charge for the haircut
And the bullets come free
My uncle sam send a letter, said:
He's got a mission for me

Now i'm a ranger, not a stranger
And i live in saigon
We've got a team of special forces
And we deliver napalm

But if they tell you that i've lost my mind
Baby it's not gone just a little hard to find
About the time this letter gets home
I'd be gone, gone, yeah gone

And if they tell you that i'm f.i.a.
Think a little less about me each day
'Cause if i ever get back
I'll be shell shocked, whoa
Shell shocked, yeah

Feels funny riding in my car
Used to drive a tank and shoot a b.a.r.
I know i'm home
But i feel gone,gone, yeah gone

Now it's over and the homeland's safe
Got a purple heart to show the world i'm brave
The businessmen sat home
Well i got shell shocked, whoa
Shell shocked, whoa
Shell shock
Shell shock
Shell shock

Manowar
(R. Friedman/J. DeMaio)

We met on english ground
In a backstage room
We heard the sound
And we all knew
What we had to do

We called the high command
Questedly to make a stand
And in the field we grew
And we all knew

Soon the time would come
For us to fight,
Destination
Now in sight

Aaah, manowar
Born to live forever more
The right to conquer every shore
Hold your ground and give no more

Our fight will never end
So we called your party sense
To raise your hands
And take our stand

Look sharp
When duty calls
Where we march
Cities fall
And the strong survive
And take our side

Now the time has come
For us to fight
Target waiting
In our sight

Aaah, manowar
Born to live forever more
The right to conquer every shore
Hold your ground and give no more

Manowar
Born to live forever more
The right to conquer every shore
Manowar
Born to live forever more
Manowar
Born to live forever more
The right to conquer every shore
Hold your ground and give no more
Born to live forever more
The right to conquer every shore

Dark Avenger
(R. Friedman/J. DeMaio)

He broke the laws of the elders
So they blocked out his eye,
Took his land and fortune,
Left him to die

Bound on the shoreline,
Left for the tide,
Seizes life, blood leaving...
Circling lower, the vultures fly

His bones may be broken
But the spirit can't die
And the gods see his anguish
And give him a sign

From the floor of the ocean
The ship of the lost souls rise
And they take him where no one sleeps while the undead cry,
Where no one sleeps while the undead cry...

And in the world above
The elders sing,
On his land they live...
Let death bell ring

Narration:
He was met at the gate of hades
By the guardian of the lost souls,
The keeper of the unavenged
And he did say to him:
"let you not pass
Abandon
Return to the world
From once you came
And seek payment
Not only for thy known anguish
But vindicate the souls
Of the unavenged"

And they placed in his hands
A sword
Made for him
Called: vengeance
Forged in brimstone
And tempered
By the wolf in tears of the unavenged

And to carry him up on his journey
Back to the upper world
They brought forth
Their demon horse
Called: black death
A grim steed
So fiercely might
And black in colour
That he could stand as one: darkness...
Save from his burning eyes
Of grims and fire

And on that night
They rode up from hell
The pounding of his hooves
Did clap like thunder !

Chorus:
Burning, death, destruction
Raping the daughters and wives
In blood i take my payment
In foul with their lives

No one can escape me
On black death i ride
When kissed by the sword of vengeance
Your head lays there by your side
I take the lives of all that i once knew
The torn flesh of a slow death waits for you

Chorus:
Burning, death, destruction
Raping the daughters and wives
In blood i take my payment
In foul with their lives

I spare that land of servants
My wake is slow dead there
I take their wives and daughters
They stand there watching, watching
Hoping to get my life
But when i'm through they know they must pay

Chorus:
Burning, death, destruction
Raping the daughters and wives
In blood i take my payment
In foul with they lives
With they lives
With they lives
With they lives

Battle Hymn
(R. Friedman/J. DeMaio)

By moonlight we ride
Ten thousands side by side
With swords drawn held high
Our whips and armours shine
Hail to thee our infantry
Still brave beyond the grave
All sworn the eternal vow
The time to strike is now

Chorus:
Kill, kill, oh !
Kill, kill, oh !
Kill, kill, oh !
Kill, kill, oh !

Gone are the days when freedom shone
Now blood and steel meet bone
In the light of the battle's way
The sands of time will shade
How proud our soldiers stand
With mace and chain in hand
Sound of charge into glory ride
Over the top of the vanguished pride

Chorus:
Victory, victory, oh !
Victory, victory, oh !
Victory, victory, oh !
Victory, victory, oh !

To the battle we ride
We crossed a starlit sky
No space no time
We'll catch the wind
Strange losses, men died
We crossed a starlit sky
And still no space or time
We'll catch the wind

Chorus: kill, kill, oh !
Kill, kill, oh !
Kill, kill, oh !
Kill, kill, oh !

Sound of charge into glory ride
Over the top of the anguished pride
By moonlight we ride
Tenthousand side by side

Warlord
(J. DeMaio)

When you see me comin' flying down the road
You know i ain't afraid to lay it down
Yea got me some leather. Leather is my skin
Black'n'chrome flashin' through the town.
Some call me the warlord 'cause i'm a god-damn
Bad machine, young'n'hungry, not too proud'n'mean

Ride, ride, ride, i'm the warlord of the road,
Riding, riding, riding, ain't never growin' old.

Take what i want and i go where i please
Got the world right by the balls. This world ain't
Big enough to keep me down. Yea we're livin'
In a sick world. The man on the t.v. said we
Got lotsa trouble overseas, well what the hell
Do i care? Think they care about me?
Stop sending money send'em all a bomb.

Ride, ride, ride, i'm the warlord of the road,
Ridin', ridin', ridin', ain't never growin' old.

Born to live in the fast lane on a chopped up
Harley-d, smell that oil and high test gasoline.
Never got a shortage of girls to share my seat.
Well they all want to know what people say is true,
You know, get a biker started 'n he'll drive all
Damn night. Well hold on honey 'cause this ride's
For a ride.

Ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride
I'm the warlord of the road.
Ridin', ridin', ridin', ain't never growin' old.

Secret of Steel
(J. DeMaio/R. the Boss)

Atop the mountain, where the river of steel flows
Black is the forest, white was the snow.
There as children, how could children know?
One without name or number soon would show.
There stood he, on his chariot made of gold
He did reveal the trinity of secrets old.

A sceptre of iron could mercy bring.
A shield of gold, the creator and king,
And the great sword of steel.

Sons os destiny shall wield.
Hear wisdom's voice.
Rise, know the strength that you feel.
Hold in your heart but never reveal.
You were called by the gods, their powers to wield.
Guard well the secret of steel.

A sceptre of iron could mercy bring.

You were called by the gods, their powers to wield.
Guard well the secret of steel.

Gloves of Metal
(J. DeMaio/R. the Boss)

Hear the pounding army of the night
The call of metal summons us tonight
And gather we on this site
To behold the power and the might
We wear leather, we wear spikes, we rule the night

Off with the lights, hear the screams
See the banging heads awaken to their dreams.
The sound of metal so loud it cracks the beams
Played by warriors called the metal kings.

A hero's welcome for those who heed the call.
We are together, we are all.
With hands high fists fill the air
Against the world we stand.
Hands high forever we'll be there,
Gloves of metal rule tonight. Yea

A hero's welcome for those who heed the call.
We are together, we are all.
With hands high fists fill the air
Against the world we stand.
Hands high forever we'll be there,
Gloves of metal rule tonight. Yea

Leather, metal, spikes and chains
Gloves of metal raised to show the brave.
Into the darkness march the armies of the night.
Bound by metal we live the fight.
We wear leather, we wear spikes, we rule the night
With hands high fists fill the air
Against the world we stand.
Hands high forever we'll be there,
Gloves of metal rule tonight. Yea

Gates of Valhalla
(J. DeMaio)

Valhalla the gods await me
Open wide thy gates embrace me.
Great hall of the battle slain
With sword in hand.
All those who stand on shore
Raise high your hands to bid a last
Farewell to the viking land.

Death's chilling wind blows through my hair
I'm now immortal, i am there
I take my place by odin's side
Eternal army in the sky.

I point my hatchet to the wind
I guard the gates and all within
Hear my sword sing, as i ride across the sky
Sworn by the sacred blood of odin onward ride.

Valhalla the gods await me
Open wide thy gates embrace me.
Great hall of the battle slain
With sword in hand.
Behold the kingdom of the kings
Books of spells and magic rings
Endless knowledge, endless time
I scream the final battle cry.

Hatred
(J. DeMaio)

I taste your blood as it showers from my blade
I eat your heart, from evil it was made
With heart filled hatred black blood runs through my veins.
I take your powers to the ancient ones who reign

I conquer evil, let evil know my name
Come forth ye wicked, know the gruesome pain
I am the omen, the one that cannot die
I am the flame, hatred burns inside.

My strength is hatred, torment and pain, hatred, hatred
With heart filled hatred black blood runs through my veins.

I crush your bones, i kill your face
I rip your flesh, i end the chase
You meet with terror, you draw the ace
I rule the world the rats that race.

My strength is hatred, torment and pain, hatred, hatred
With heart filled hatred black blood runs through my veins.

Hatred

Revelation
(J. DeMaio)

Above the wreckage of your mortal world i stand
Judgement passed delivered by his hand
Now clear the smoke, there the ashes stand
A fitting tribute to mortality and man.
What was written foretold in dreams,
In visions apocalypse now seen.
And all self-righteous fools who lived and blasphemed
Drink the wine of his anger
Die with the beast

Vindication, he is coming on the clouds
See his angels, hear their trumpets sound.
The day of anger when the stars fall from the sky
The moon turns red, the sun turns black as night.
Know the end is coming, heed this sign
By the morning star the four horsemen ride.

Revelation, the chosen saved
Earth be cleansed in a blaze
Armageddon, the first trumpet blows
Hail, fire and blood fall on satan's throne.

His hair as white as wool, his eyes like burning flame
He is the first and last, he brings the seven plagues
Seven stars of seven cities in his hand
He holds the keys of death for the underworld and man
Know the end is coming, heed this sign
By the morning star he four horsemen ride

Revelation, the chosen saved
Earth be cleansed in a blaze
Armageddon, the first trumpet blows
Hail, fire and blood fall on satan's throne.

Revelation, the chosen saved
Earth be cleansed in a blaze
Armageddon, the first trumpet blows
Hail, fire and blood fall on satan's throne.
March For Revenge
(J. DeMaio)

Ride, ride, ride, ride up from hell

Armed with magic sons of demons and men
This song of greeting written for your tragic end.
So long our stride the world doth tremble with fear
Black winds blow where we ride near.
Maim and kill them, take the women and children.

Hot pitch and chain take to the air
Our ramming blades lay their ships hold bare.
Steel meets steel, axes, broadsword and shield.
Their heads ride our spears and bodies cover the fields.
Maim and kill them, take the women and children.

Fallen brother as i hold closed your side
I fear this wound your last.
Mighty earth now doth drink your blood
And i remember days long past.
Your sacrifice so great, rest now take thy sleep
For you shall not awake, let revenge be sweet.
For when we march, your sword rides with me.
For when we march, your sword rides with me.
For when we march, your sword rides with me.
For when we march, your sword rides with me.

You who killed my brother and all who take your side
This be your last hour. Let your steel be tried.
Now turn to face me upon the timeless plane
Kill me if you can.

Death is life!
By the full moon they rise from their graves.
Through seas of blood, fighting with hell bent rage.
Swear the creed of unity, by the circle of blood
We are one, we know not fear! Born to fight not run.
Maim and kill them, take the women and children.

All Men Play on 10
(J. DeMaio)

I made a rock'n'roll
When i tried givin' in, to make money had to turn down low
They said, "why be proud, don't play so loud, be like us
And get a sound that's real thin
Wear a polyester suit, act happy, look cute, get a haircut
And buy small gear"
That's when i turned to them and said, hold it, right there
Well it's more to me than just a job, and while i'm playin'
You won't get robbed
Nobody tells a man how to play, it just ain't that way
Hey, hey, hey, can you hear me say
All men play on ten, never gonna turn down again
All men play on ten, never gonna turn down again

I'm jet fuel honey, plug me into 220, step back and let
My fingers fly
While i'm burning up my gear, there's a fire in your ear
That won't stop until the day you die
I really put it to the floor when i hear the crowd roar
Oh, it's music to my ears when they scream
Then i run back the power rack and deck, all of my gear

Well it's more to me than just a job, and while i'm playing
You won't get robbed
Nobody tells a man how to play, it just ain't that way
Hey, hey, hey, can you hear me say
All men play on ten, never gonna turn down again
All men play on ten, never gonna turn down again

Well it's more to me than just a job, and while i'm playing
You won't get robbed
Nobody tells a man how to play, it just ain't that way
Hey, hey, hey, can you hear me say
All men play on ten, never gonna turn down again
All men play on ten, never gonna turn down again

Animals
(J. DeMaio)

Hear the call of the wild in us all
It waits for the night to fall
I'm getting hot, i'm ready for the night
No holdin' back, let's ball
I'm gonna give all you can take all night
And leave you in the morning feeling right

I'm an animal, there's an animal in me
Gonna set it free
I'm an animal, there's an animal in me
Gonna set it free

I've been looking, you've been watching from the side
There's something you just can't hide
Oh, your getting wet, your working up a sweat
Your hairs standing up on end
Your skin is screaming, glad we met?
Tonight's one night you won't forget

I'm an animal, there's an animal in me
Gonna set it free
I'm an animal, there's an animal in me
Gonna set it free
Thor
(J. DeMaio)

Black clouds on the horizon
Great thunder and burning rain
His chariot pounding, i heard the heavens scream his name

I watched as he shouted
To the giants that died that day
He held up his hammer high and called to odin for a sign
Thor the mighty, thor the brave
Crush the infidels in your way
By your hammer let none be saved
Live to die on that final day
Gods, monsters and men
We'll die together in the end

God of thunder, god of rain
Earth shaker who feels no pain
The powerhead of the universe
Now send your never ending curse

I watched as he shouted
To the giants that died that day
He held up his hammer high and called to odin for a sign
Thor the mighty, thor the brave
Crush the infidels in your way
By your hammer let none be saved
Live to die on that final day
Gods, monsters and men
We'll die together in the end

Swing your hammer to crack the sky
Lift your cape so that you might fly
Back to odin and the gods on high
And leave this mortal world

Thor the mighty, thor the brave
Crush the infidels in your way
By your hammer let none be saved
Live to die on that final day
Gods, monsters and men
We'll die together in the end

Mountains
(J. DeMaio)

So tall, silent against the sky
Up through the clouds where eagles fly
Wind and rain beat down on one so strong
They cut but never change, what stood so long
Tall as a mountain, i'm gonna tear through the sky
Life's for the takin'
Like a man is a mountainside
Greatness waits for those who try
None can teach you, it's all inside
Just climb

I am in the ground, i am in the air, i am all
I live in the hearts of all men
I am the call to greatness
Not all can hear
I awaken the creator, in those who dare
And the day will come, when we all must die
And enter the mountainside
Tall as a mountain, i'm gonna tear through the sky
Life's for the takin'
Like a man is a mountainside
Greatness waits for those who try
None can teach you, it's all inside
Just climb

I have no fear
Death and glory
Both draw near
Like a man is a mountainside
Greatness waits for those who try
None can teach you, it's all inside
Just climb

Sign of the Hammer
(J. DeMaio)

The spell has been broken, the curse has been lifted
Black is the wind on the heels of the gifted
Four sworn to vengeance, see the hate in our eyes
Called by the gods and given a sign
Onward pounding into glory ride sign of the hammer, be my guide
Final warning all stand aside
Sign of the hammer, it's my time

Pounding, pounding, we are back from the dead
Those who denied us are delivered instead
Into the hands of four sworn to ride
Now the people will triumph and live by the sign
Onward pounding into glory ride
Sign of the hammer, be my guide
Final warning all stand aside
Sign of the hammer, it's my time

The spell has been broken, the curse has been lifted
Black is the wind on the heels of the gifted
Four sworn to vengeance, see the hate in our eyes
Called by the gods and given a sign
Onward pounding into glory ride
Sign of the hammer, be my guide
Final warning all stand aside
Old men and young boys, it's my time
Sign of the hammer, be my guide
Sign of the hammer, it's my time

The Oath
(J. DeMaio/R. the Boss)

Burning embers of the second death will come in the night
Priests and kings, the alpha and omega, poison bites
False prophets and deceivers, swing from the trees
Now. Dawn the age of birds
Drunk with blood, like lepers with disease
Lord of the sky, mercury the guide
Lord of the underworld, i swear the sacred rite
I will crucify, slay them with their tribe
Hear my war cry
They'll find no sanctuary hidden in their ancestral halls
Let loose the knot that binds
The spirit and flesh, let it fall
For only courage and heroism linger after death
So, hold fast thy sword, rejecting pain, feel the dragons
Breath
Lord of the sky, mercury the guide
Lord of the underworld, i swear the sacred rite
I will crucify, slay them with their tribe
Hear my war cry

I've sworn the oath
I've sworn the oath
I've sworn the oath

Lord of the sky, mercury the guide
Lord of the underworld, i swear the sacred rite
I will crucify, slay them with their tribe
Hear my war cry

Burning embers of the second death will come in the night
Priests and kings, the alpha and omega, poison bites
False prophets and deceivers, swing from the trees
Now. Dawn the age of birds
Drunk with blood, like lepers with disease
Lord of the sky, mercury the guide
Lord of the underworld, i swear the sacred rite
I will crucify, slay them with their tribe

Guyana
(J. DeMaio)

Thank you for the kool aid reverend jim
We're glad to leave behind their world of sin
Our lifeless bodies fall on holy ground
Rotting flesh a sacrificial mound
Were you our god or a man in a play who took our
Applause and forced us to stay
Now all together we lived as we died on your command
By your side
Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your word for the grand final stand
Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your word for the grand final stand

In the cult of the damned we all worked the land, too afraid
To look up
We all feared his hand
Hurry my children
There isn't much time
But we'll meet again on the other side
Be good to the children and old people
First hand them a drink
They're dying of thirst

Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your word for the grand final stand
Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your word for the grand final stand
Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your word for the grand final stand
Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your word for the grand final stand

Bigfoot, bigfoot thrown in a well
Pulled under water
Screaming like hell
He told us life was just a hotel
Time to check out when he rang the bell

Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your word for the grand final stand
Guyana in the cult of the damned
Give us your word for the grand final stand

Blow your speakers with rock and roll

Carry On
(J. DeMaio)

The north star always guides me
When winter skies are gray
And i wait for sun when all are one
I shall not betray
Calling at me
I'm waiting when all are led astray

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when i am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as we're together
Then forever carry on

Darkness all around us
We don't close our eyes
No one's gonna ground us
We were burn to fly
Comin'at us no stopping
Born to amplify

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when i am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as we're together
Then forever carry on

Yea,be my brother
Fight to stay alive
All the world can't change us
With all their burned-out jive
Come get us now we're waiting
We won't run and hide

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when i am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as we're together
Then forever carry on

Let's sing a fighting song
One hundred thousand riders
We can't all be wrong
Comin'at us no stopping
Always carry on

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when i am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as we're together
Then forever carry on

Violence And Bloodshed
(J. DeMaio)

Civilization crumblin' fast
End the world with a blast
People afraid walking the streets
Scums have their day
'Til they run into me

Are you ready?

Livin' in fear ain't livin' to me
I'am armed with a gun defending the free
They blew it in nam
Shut up my friends
I'm back in the streets
The fight never ends
I was born with a gun in my hand
I'll die for my country
But i'll die like a man

Violence and bloodsheed
Violence and bloodsheed
Violence and bloodsheed

Now we're back to animal law
The payback's a bitch
I'm guying all
All my life i been waitin'to see
Who's gonna win crumbs or me

Are you ready

My brother's still in da-nang
Puttin'an ad in the back of kerrang
I'mm looking for people who just wanna kill
We'll go back the nam cause no one else will

Land of the free
Home of the brave
Now that's how it is
And that's how it stays

Violence and bloodsheed
Violence and bloodsheed
Violence and bloodsheed

Defender

When you are old enough to read this words
Their meaning will unfold
These words all that's left
And though we've never meet, my only son
I hope you know

As it did mine so long ago
To help the helpless ones who all look up to you
And to defend them so the end

Fight proud, my son

And i now wait to shake the hand of fate
Like the dusk awaiting dawn
So wizards cast your spell
With no heart to do me well
So it's written,it shall be

Defender

Fight proud, my son
You're the defender

Black Wind, Fire And Steel
(J. DeMaio)

Full moon light is calling me
My kingdom lies within.
The mystic soul and lions heart
Brought by the talisman
The ecstasy of battle takes me
Where the falcons fly.
Immortal youth was granted me
I will never die.

Born of black wind fire and steel
Born of black wind fire and steel
Born to teach them all to heel
Born of black wind fire and steel

Pounded by the hammers
Of the giants of the world
I can see the darkness
I'm the overlord
Single combat i await
My shadow brings them fear.
The spikes upon my chariot
Will grind them when they're near

Born of black wind fire and steel
Born of black wind fire and steel
Born to teach them all to heel
Born of black wind fire and steel

I am an outcast
On the path of no return
Punisher and swordsman
I was born to burn.
Black wind always follows
Where my black horse rides.
Fire's in my soul
Steel is on my side.

Wheels of Fire-LIVE
(J. DeMaio)

Since the dawn of time
I've rolled across the earth
Spinning in the dust
Long before your birth
Eatin' tar and gasoline
Every light i see is green
Open pipes, my machines's triple-plated chrome

Spirit of the wheel

Wheels of fire burn the night
Ride across the sky
Wheels of fire burning bright
We live to ride

Motors running
Now you're gonna learn
Waitin on the line
Make your tires burn
Fast, faster, faster, faster
Speeding always kills
Nothing else takes us to get these thrills

Spirit of the wheel

Wheels of fire burn the night
Ride across the sky
Wheels of fire burning bright
We live to ride

Blood and thunder on the road
My heart is pounding
My blood is nitroglycerine
I'm fire
Burning, burning, burning, burning
Ready to explode
Don't want nothing left of me to scrape off the road

Spirit of the wheel

Wheels of fire burn the night
Ride across the sky
Wheels of fire burning bright
We live to ride

Clouds of smoke
Tires screaming
Fire in my hair
Blown into a thousand pieces
Scattered everywhere
Fast,burn,burning,faster
Wanna take a ride
Spirit of the wheel
Wheels of fire ride

Spirit of the wheel

Wheels of fire burn the night
Ride across the sky
Wheels of fire burning bright
We live to ride

Kings of Metal
(J. DeMaio/R. the Boss)

Manowar manowar living on the road
When we're in town speakers explode
We don't attract wimps cause we're too loud
Just true metal people that's manowar's crowd

They wanna keep us down
But they can't last
When we get up we're gonna kick your ass
Gonna keep on burnin'
We always will
Other bands play manowar kill
Other bands play manowar kill

We like it hard we like it fast
We got the biggest amps man they blast
True metal people wanna rock not pose
Wearin' jeans and leather not cracker jack clothes

They wanna keep us down
But they can't last
When we get up we're gonna kick your ass
Gonna keep on burnin'
We always will
Other bands play manowar kill
Other bands play manowar kill

We're the kins of metal comin' to town
When we light up have the roof malled down
Don't try to tell us that we're too loud
Cause there ain't no way that we'll ever turn down

They wanna keep us down
But they can't last
When we get up we're gonna kick your ass
Gonna keep on burnin'
We always will
Other bands play manowar kill

Heart of Steel
(J. DeMaio)

Build a fire a thousands miles away to light my long
Way home
I ride a commet
My trail is long to stay
Silence is a heavy stone
I fight the world and take all they can give
There are times my heart hangs low
Born to walk against the wind
Born to hear my name
No matter where i stand i'm alone

Stand and fight
Live by your heart
Always one more try
I'm not afraid to die
Stand and fight
Say what you feel
Born with a heart of steel

Burn the bridge behind you
Leave no retreat
There's only one way home
Those who laugh and crowd the path and cut each
Other's throats
Will fall like melting snow
They'll watch us rise with fire in our eyes
They'll bow their heads
Their hearts will hang low
Then we'll laugh and they will kneel and know this
Heart of steel was
Too hard to break
Too hard to bold

Stand and fight
Live by your heart
Always one more try
I'm not afraid to die
Stand and fight
Say what you feel
Born with a heart of steel

The Crown and the Ring
(J. DeMaio)

From a battle i've come
To a battle i ride
Blazing up to the sky
Chains of fate
Hold a fiery stride
I'll see you again when i die

High and mighty alone we are kings
Whirlwinds of fire we ride
Providence brought us the crown and the ring
Covered with blood and our pride

Heroes await me
My enemies ride fast
Knowing not this ride's their last
Saddle my horse as i drink my last ale
Bow string and steel will prevail

High and mighty alone we are kings
Whirlwinds of fire we ride
Providence brought us the crown and the ring
Covered with blood and our pride

Odin i await thee
Your true son am i
I hail you now as i die
I pledge you my sword and to no man i kneel
Ours is the kingdom of steel

High and mighty alone we are kings
Whirlwinds of fire we ride
Providence brought us the crown and the ring
Covered with blood and our pride

Kingdom Come
(J. DeMaio)

See the white light
The light within

Fan the sparks of will
For all of us waiting
Our kingdom has come
Rays of power shining
Rays of magic fall
On the golden voice that speaks within us all
For all of us waiting
Your kingdom will come

Kingdom come

Fell the white light
The light within
Yea it burns a tire that drives a man to win
For all of us waiting
Your kingdom will come

Kingdom come

Words of power
Calling to us all
Holding us together while other kingdoms fall
No longer waiting
Our kingdom has come

Kingdom come

Kingdom coming
Another kingdom falls
The rightfull are waiting
But all are not rightfull
Wait and receive the weight of the fall

Kingdom come
Pleasure Slave
(J. DeMaio)

She is waiting to kiss my hand
But she will wait for my command
My chains and collar brought her to her knees
She now is free to please

Woman, be my slave
That's your reason to live
Woman, be my slave
The greatest gift i can give
Woman, be my slave

Before her surrender she had no life
Now she's a slave, not a wife
Her only sorrow is for women who live with lies
She's taken off her disguise

Woman, be my slave
Chained unto my bed
Woman, be my slave
Begging to be fed

Your body belongs to me

Woman come here
Remove your garments
Kneel before me
Please me

Woman, be my slave
Chained unto my bed
Woman, be my slave
Begging to be fed

Hail and Kill
(J. DeMaio/R. the Boss)

Brothers i am calling from the valley of the kings
With nothing to atone
A dark march lies ahead together we will ride like
Thunder from the sky
May your sword stay wet like a young girl in her
Prime
Hold your hammers high

Blood and death are waiting like a raven in the sky
I was born to die
Hear me while i live
As i look into your eyes
None shall hear a lie
Power and dominion are taken by the will
By diving right hail and kill

Hail hail hail and kill,hail and kill
Hail hail hail and kill,hail and kill

My father was a wolf
I'm a kinsman of the slain
Sworn to rise again
I will bring salvation, punishment and pain
The hammer of hate is our faith
Power and dominion are taken by the will
By diving right hail and kill

Hail hail hail and kill,hail and kill
Hail hail hail and kill,hail and kill

Rip their flesh
Burn their hearts
Stab them in the eyes
Rape their women as they cry
Kill their servants
Burn their homes
Till there's no blood left to spill
Hail and kill

Power and dominion are taken by the will
By diving right hail and kill

Hail hail hail and kill,hail and kill

The Warriors Prayer
(J. DeMaio)

Grandfather tell me a story
Allright go and get your storybook
No no not one of those a real story
A real story?
Yes tell me about when you were a boy
Well then i shall have to take you back
With me a long way in time

I was my thirteenth year on a cold winter's
Day as i walk through the enchanted
Forest i heard the sound of horses and men
At arms.i felt compelled to walk on and
Find the place of these sounds.and when
The forest did clear i was standing on a hill
Before me the armies of the world
Standing waiting.i thought to myself for
Whom or for what are they waiting?
Suddenly a gust of wind came up from the
North.there appeared a lone rider holding
A sword of steel.then from the south came
Another bearing a battle ax.from the east
Came a third holding a spiked club.and
Finally from the west a rider who wielded
A great hammer of war.with them came
Their soldiers of death followed by an
Army of immortals.they were few in number
But the look in their eyes told all who
Beheld them that they would leave this day
Only in victory or death and there was a
Great silence....my heart began to pound storm clouds
Filled the sky with darkness.rain came.and
The four winds blew with such anger that i
Held fast to a tree.i watched the four
Riders raise their weapons into the air
Without warning .screaming their war cry
They led the attack.down to the battle they
Rode.they met the armies of the world with
A mighty clash|i could feel the ground
Shake.the earth drank much blood that
Day|each of the four was unto himself.a
Whirlwind of doom

When the smoke did clear many thousands
Were dead there was much blood and gore
Their bodies lay broken and scattered
Across the battlefield like brown leaves
Blown by the wind and i saw the four ride
Together to the top of the hill.while below
Them the soldiers of death assembled all
Those who would now swear allegiance
To them.

And the four spoke the words of the
Warriors prayer:

Gods of war i call you.my sword
Is by my side.
I seek a life of honor,free from
All false pride.
I will crack the whip with a bold
Mighty hail.
Cover me with death if i should
Ever fail.
Glory,majesty,unity
Hail,hail,hail

And as i stood and looked on i heard the
Armies of the world hail them without
End and their voices of victory carried
Long and far throughout the land

Well that's it.did you like the story?
Yeah it was great
Oh good i'm glad now off to bed with you
Grandfather?
Yes?
Who were those four men?
Who were they?
They were the metal kings
Blood of the Kings
(J. DeMaio)

Brothers the battle is raging
Choose your side

Hail to england

Forever we're fighting the world
Side by side

Four kings of metal
Your metal kings

Our brothers in belgium,holland and france will not
Fail

Till the blood on your hand is the blood of a king

Sound the death tone
On our march for revenge
Spill the blood of my enemies
The oath of a friend
Fight the holy war for the crown and the ring
Six magic circles made by the blood of the kings

Wherever we ride it's metal we bring
Four kings of metal
Your metal kings
Death to the false ones
Dance on a string
Till the blood on your sword is the blood of a king
Till the blood on your hand is the blood of a king
Blood of a king
Return of the Warlord

Brothers of Metal
(J. DeMaio)

Strike while the iron is hot
Steel is strongest so say we all
And if we all were not brothers of metal would we fall? No
They tried to test our spirit
They tasted steel before we were done
Grinding their bones into the dust of the past
All blown away like a shot from a gun
We cast our lot together four still stand as one
Here we'll remain forever till our kingdoms one

Brothers of metal
We are fighting with power and steel
Fighting for metal metal that's real
Brothers of metal will always be there
Standing together with hands in the air

Let us drink to the power drink to the sound

Drink to your brothers who are never to fall
We're all brothers of metal here in the hall

Our hearts are filled with metal and masters we have none
And we will die for metal, metal heals, my son

Brothers of metal

The Gods Made Heavy Metal
(J. DeMaio/K. Logan)

In the beginning there was silence and darkness
All across the earth
Then came the wind and a hole in the sky
Thunder and lightning came crashing down
Hit the earth and split the ground
Fire burned high in the sky

From down below fire melted the stone
The ground shook and started to pound

The gods made heavy metal and they saw that it was good
They said to play it louder than hell
We promised that we would
When losers say it's over with you know that it's a lie
The gods made heavy metal and it's never gonna die

We are the true believers
It's our turn to show the world
In the fire of heavy metal we were burned
It's more than our religion it's the only way to live
But the enemies of metal we can't forgive

Cause we believe in the power and the might
And the gods who made metal are with us tonight

The gods made heavy metal and they saw that it was good
They said to play it louder than hell
We promised that we would
When losers say it's over with you know that it's a lie
The gods made heavy metal and it's never gonna die

We believe in the power and the might
And the gods who made metal are with us tonight
We're here tonight for heavy metal are you ready in the hall
They have chosen us and we have heard the call
Gonna tear the roof off with out sound

Crack the walls and shake the ground
Fight tonight for metal one and all
Cause we believe in the power and the might
And the gods who made metal are with us tonight

The gods made heavy metal and they saw that it was good
They said to play it louder than hell
We promised that we would
When losers say it's over with you know that it's a lie
The gods made heavy metal and it's never gonna die

Courage
(J. DeMaio)

Some want to think hope is lost see me stand alone
I can't do what others may want then i'll have no home

So for now wave good-bye and leave your hands held high
Hear this song of courage long into the night
So for now wave good-bye leave your hands held high
Hear this song of courage long into the night

And the wind will bear my cry to all who hope to fly
Hear this song of courage ride into the night

Battles are fought by those with the courage to believe
They are won by those who find the heart
Find a heart to share
This heart that fills the soul will point the way to victory
If there's a fight then i'll be there i'll be there

So for now wave good-bye, leave your hands held high
Hear this song of courage long into the night
And the wind will bear my cry to all who hope to fly
Lift your wings up high my friend fearless to the end
So for now wave good-bye, leave your hands held high
Hear this song of courage long into the night

Demanding to be tested by the best
Not to be forgotten like all the rest

Outlaw
(J. DeMaio/K. Logan)

I'm a stranger in town and my guns never cold
I'm a gabler so bet on your life
You'll never live to grow old
I deal in lead i won't step aside
Where trouble's waitin well so am i
I live for the fight the thrill of the kill
Paid in gold for the blood i spill

Outlaw outlaw outlaw ride
Into the west a gun by your side
Hell and glory honor and pride

Stay alive be fast on the draw
Live by the gun or die by the law

Outlaw outlaw outlaw ride

So be ready to kill

The law of the west was the law of the gun
Shoot and be fast lives on the run
Stay alive be fast on the draw
Live by the gun or die by the law
Shot of whisky i'll be on my way
Back in the saddle pull on the reins
Spurs to the beast over the hill

King
(J. DeMaio)

Now is the time to reach for the sky
Gather the wind hear the voice to fly
To know why they sing about heroes and kings
Who were brave and not afraid to die
Look and you'll see that a new day will bring
The will to go on and fight trough endless suffering
For all who believe wait a crown a ring

The power of the man who would be king
The power of the man who would be king

Into the fight of hopes and dreams
The master of the wind knows nothing's what it seems
The melting of the soul the wish of those who scheme
The taking of the will by destroyers of the dream
They live to spread the fear of the wrong of right of self
They want us all to live like books upon a shelf
But we know we have the power to fight and make a stand
Strike when we are challenged all across the land to be king

Fight for the crown, fight for the ring
We're fighting the world, we fight for the king

Time to face the world let brothers never fight
Forever forge ahead and keep the dream in sight
For those who never try they are sure to fail
The heart's a righteous wind that comes to fill the sail
For the glory of the king we fight to stay alive
By the power of the will, the spirit to survive to be king

Fight for the crown, fight for the ring
We're fighting the world, we fight for the king

All of the dreams held deep inside have a meaning to the soul
Freedom to bring a thought to the wing is waiting to unfold
For the crown and the ring
The power of the men who would be king

Fight for the crown, fight for the ring
We're fighting the world, we fight for the king

For the glory of the king we fight to stay alive fight
By the power of the will the spirit to survive fight
Across the gates of heaven beyond the gates of hell fight
We fought to stay together
We have won and have lived to tell who would be king

Fight for the crown, fight for the ring
We're fighting the world, we fight for the king

The Power
(J. DeMaio)

I've got the power to fly into the wind
The power to be free to die and live again
This power's like fire, fire loves to burn
Make the world a grave of ashes in an urn
The power in the darkness to see without my sight
The power of the magic the power of the spell
Not to serve in heaven but one day rule in hell

Power the power the power

This power's greater than love and of hate
This is the power of will and of fate
The power of blood the triumph of steel
Greater than the power of a priest or a sinner
The power to defy to fight and be the winner
The power of the demons spirits i command
Always by my side to serve the master's plan

Power the power the power

None can fight the power none can fight the wind
Secrets of all life and death are carried there within
Call out to the power of the darkness and light
Have dominion of the earth be lord of all the night
Kill all those who stand against you look into their eyes
Drink their blood and laugh as they pay for all their lies
Piss upon their grave then cast a final spell
Fly into the night one day meet in hell

Power the power the power

Achill, Agony And Ecstasy In Eight Parts

Prelude

i) Hector Storms The Wall

See my chariot run to your ships I'll drive you back to the sea
You came her for gold the wall will not hold
This day was promised to me
The gods are my shield lightning and javelins fly
Soon many will fall we are storming the wall
Stones fall snow from the sky

We will pay with our glory in the fire of battle
Zeus today is mine
Killing all in my way like sheep and like cattle
smashing skulls of all who defy
I spare not the hammer I spare not the sword
This day will ring with my name
None have to chase me let he who will face me
Kill me or die by the sword

ii) The Death Of Patroclus

Oh friend of mine, how to say goodbye
This was your time, but the armor you wore was mine
I will not rest until Hector's blood is spilled
His bones will all be broken dragged across the field
This dear friend is how we'll say goodbye
until we meet in the sky

iii) Funeral March

iv) Armor Of The Gods

v) Hector's Final Hour

Here inside the walls of Troy, the gods weigh my fate
From this bay do I abstain, to a memory of hate
To pay for all the blood that spilled the many thousands i did kill
No walls can contain the gods' almighty will

I hear the silent voices I cannot hide
The gods leave no choices so we all must die
Oh Achilles let thy arrows fly, into the wind, where eagles cross the sky
Today my mortal blood will mix with sand it was foretold
I will die by thy hand into Hades my soul descend

vi) Death Hector's Reward

Cowards in the grip of fear, no valor to uphold
Cut into the earth, with honor long been sold
For all shall come to know me as they fall unto their knees
Zeus the Thunderer, control my destiny

When the cards of life were bealt my hand a ruthless fate
To avenge, and bringeth fury, Hector feel my hate
A bloodbath I was born to bring, by birth I'm an assassin
To cut the cord of life and death ties to earth unfasten

Blood and fire death and hate, your body I will desecrate
Dogs and vultures eat your flesh the Hall of Hades waits
Kill...

Hector's blood lies on the battlefield his body's mangled wounds
The gods who once protected him are now his gods of doom,
Like a tower standing tall, steadfast in direction
I fall upon you bringing death, the gods give no protection

Coward in the grip of fear, no valor to uphold
Cut into the earth, with honor long been sold
For all shall come to know me, as they fall unto their knees
Zeus the Thunderer, control my destiny

Blood and fire death and hate, your body I will desecrate
Dogs and vultures eat your flesh the Hall of Hades waits
Die...

vii) The Desecration Of Hector's Body

viii) The Glory Of Achilles

The oath of the gods, this day was fulfilled
In the heat of the battle, Hector was killed
See him Patroclus, down in the dust
Rejoice in his death my symbol of trust
A dozen highborn youths, have been killed
Cutting their throats their blood was all spilled
Their bodies set at the foot of your fire
With oxen, sheep and two of your hounds

Your funeral Pyre high off the ground
Hector's body dragged three times around
I will carry the torch to your funeral pyre
I will ask of the wind to send high your fire

Hector's blood will not be washed from my body
Until your body is burned
A prophecy spoken a promise fulfilled
More blood will be spilled, more will be killed.

Ride the dragon
(J. Demaio/D. Shankle)

Demon's blood and dragon fire, falling on my wings
Racing to the battle in the sky ancient gods are
Calling me i hear them when they sing, of all the
Heores who wait for me to die.
Beneath the cloak of magic, i'll meet them in the air
I am invisible, i move without a sound the look but cannot
Find me, they think that i'm not there with a spell i
Send them crashing to the ground.

Wait for me dragon, we'll meet in the sky,
By fire and magic i am sworn, hell is calling! We
Cannot be denied fly to the blackness
Of the storm, we must die to be reborn.

I wear a sacred talisman, i make a secret sign
Now welcome me into this wicked wind, on
The journey of a shaman a dragon i must
Ride, the gates of hell are open! Let me in!!!

Rule the hell or serve in heaven,
Choose an altar or throne, all
Commandments and the laws of
Man disown. Now eat the fruit of
Knowledge, unto no one ye atone,
Into the fire, with your soul!

Wait for me dragon, we'll meet in the sky, by fire and
Magic i am sworn, hell is calling! We cannot be denied
Fly to the blackness of
The storm, we must die to be reborn!!!

Demon's blood and dragon fire, falling on my wings
Racing to the battle in the sky ancient gods are
Calling me i hear them when they sing, of all the
Heroes who wait for me to die.

I am invisible, i move without a sound the look but cannot

By fire and magic i am sworn, hell is calling! We

Spirit Horse Of The Cherokee
(J. Demaio)

The trail of tears began for all the cherokee
The white men came to trade & borrow,
But then they would not leave
Some of us were taken by boat, and died at sea
Those of us who lived were sold to slavery.

We welcomed them as brothers, knowing nothing of
Their greed, born hunters not the hunted
As the white man hunts for me,
We are descendants of the animals
We live among the free
Our trail of tears would end one day at wounded knee.

Great spirit, thunder birds fly, we are wild and free
To fight and die by the open sky, spirit horse ride for me

When we do the ghost dance, the buffalo will return
Paint ourselves for war, now blood and fire burn
Great spirit makes us strong, take us to the sky
The cherokee are brave, we are not afraid to die

Great spirit, thunder birds fly, we are wild and free
To fight and die by the open sky, spirit horse ride for me

Red cloud, black hawk, sitting bull
Crazy horse, geronimo
Strong and brave warriors to the grave
There has been much killing, there will be much more
The medicine man is dancing, he's calling us to war,
Hatchets sing with pride, let the white men die

Great spirit, thunder birds fly, we are wild and free
To fight and die by the open sky, spirit horse ride for me

Burning
(J. Demaio/D. Shankle)

We have come from the ashes, of the burning away,
Pouring blood in the fire, on the altar of pain
Led into temptation, now the black gods align,
Here there is no salvation, and your blood is my wine.

Here's a world that is waiting, between the living and
The dead, here the flesh and its pleasure are
Eternelly wed, all is all for the taking, for a life of a
Lie, at the end of the breaking i'll be watching you die.

Crawl to the silence, renounce and deny,
The stars and the numbers, foretold of this time,
To the words and the wisdom, too the promise of lies, by
Their anger and fury,
The strong will survive.

The Power Of Thy Sword
(J. Demaio)

Lord of battle i pray on bended knee conquest by
The rising sun i'll wait for thy command with
Flame and blood at hand glory and a broken sword.

I'm the master of the world i have no fear of man
Or beast born inside the soul of the world
Riding hard breaking bone with steel and stone
Eternal might i was born to wield.

Let us drink to the battles we've lived and we've
Fought celebrate the pain and havoc we have
Wrought. Great heroes charge into the fight from
The north to the south in the black of night

The clash of honor calls to stand when
Others fall. Gods of war feel the power of my sword

Drink to the battles we've lived and we've
Fought celebrate the pain and havoc we have
Wrought. Great heroes charge into the fight from
The north to the south in the black of night

Fierce is my blade fierce is my hate born to die in
Battle i laugh at my fate. Now pay in blood when
Your blood has been spilled you're never forgiven,
Death is fulfilled !

The clash of honor calls to stand when
Others fall. Gods of war feel the power of my sword

The clash of honor calls
I will stand when others fall.
Open magic doors
The will know the power of my sword

There is blood in my hands there is blood in my eyes
With blood in my voice i scream as you die thirsting
For vengeance and mounds of the slain shaking the
Forest onto the plain

Fierce is my blade fierce is my hate born to die in
Battle i laugh at my fate. Now pay in blood when
Your blood has been spilled you're never forgiven,
Death is fulfilled !

The clash of honor calls to stand when
Others fall. Gods of war
Feel the power of my sword
They will know the power of my sword

The Demon's Whip
(j. Demaio/D. Shankle)

Black candles slowly burning, white fangs and flashing eyes
Hell's wind and incantations summon living fire,
Darkest forces and your demon's black order, black king
The cult that serves the living, accept this offering

Black candles slowly burning, white fangs and flashing eyes
Hell's wind and incantations summon living fire,
As the seven steps aqait, hear the great bell toll
With a dead man's bones conjure, the enemy of the soul

From the misery and sadness, of the molten seas of hell
Mystic love and mystic symbols in evil dreams there dwell
Darkest forces and your demon's black order, black king
The cult that serves the living, accept this offering

A deadly drink, a meal of hearts, now sacrifice and die
In darkness and destruction, behold the evil eye
And the demon's whip

Armies of the gods of hell ride across the atral plane
Bearing curses of destruction, sworn beyond the grave
Children of the darkness, all born but to deceive
By the ancient code of evil grant not one reprieve

In the place where evil dwells death can live when all life dies
Wage eternal war on heaven immortal hate below the sky
Your scripture and your sermons, are leaves borne on the wind
To heal the unrepentant one needs a greater sin

Night winds, oblivion see my dark desire
Come forth, appear he is living fire
Feel the demon's whip

Armies of the gods of hell ride across the atral plane
Bearing curses of destruction, sworn beyond the grave
Children of the darkness, all born but to deceive
By the ancient code of evil grant not one reprieve

In the place where evil dwells death can live when all life dies
Wage eternal war on heaven immortal hate below the sky
Your scripture and your sermons, are leaves borne on the wind
To heal the unrepentant one needs a greater sin
Feel the demon's whip

Master Of The Wind
(J. Demaio/D. Shankle)

In the silence of the darkness when all are fast
Asleep i live inside a dream calling to your spirit
As a sail calls the wind, hear the angels sing
Far beyond the sun across the western sky
Reach into the blackness find a silver line
In a voice i whisper a candle in the night
We'll carry all our dreams in a single dream of light

Close your eyes, look into the dream
Wins of change will winds of fortune bring

Fly away to a rainbow in the sky gold is at the end
For each of us to find there the road begins
Where another one will end here the four winds
Know who will break and who will bend
All to be the master of the wind

Falling stars now light my way my life was
Written on the wind clouds above, clouds
Below high ascend the dream within
When the wind fills the sky the clouds will move
Aside there will be the road to all our dreams
For any day that stings two better days it brings
Nothing is as bad as it seems

Close your eyes, look into the dream
Wins of change will winds of fortune bring
Fly away to a rainbow in the sky gold is at the end
For each of us to find there the road begins
Where another one will end here the four winds
Know who will break and who will bend
All to be the master of the wind
