02. Metalhead (4:52)


You only fool yourself if you think we are alone
You can't deny the truth it's here it's plain to see
But do they come as friends our brothers from the stars
Or are they here to take our place and rule our world

Heed the warning
Come the day
They walk among us
Metalhead

Did they come for you through mists of swirling light
You had a childhood dream abduction in your sleep
You start to scream out loud but no one hears your voice
You never feel the implant deep inside your head

Heed the warning
Come the day
They walk among us
Metalhead

Your tiny world revolves in a sea of endless space
Are you feeling safe protected from the skies
They come and go at will there's nothing you can do
We only stand and stare at powers they possess

Heed the warning
Come the day
They walk among us
Metalhead

Heed the warning
Come the day
They walk among us
Metalhead

03. Travellers In Time (5:17)


Two thousand years they stand behind us
Are we just travellers in time
We face the phantoms of our future
They face destruction of their kind

These, these are the days
These, these are the times
Are we just travellers in time

The ancient stones of time they call us
To hear their mystic prophecies
They've stood in silence they're immortal
Forgotton page of history

These, these are the days
These, these are the times
Are we just travellers in time
Are we just travellers in time

The crystal powers they will take you
Far across the sands of time
Searching ever for an answer
What's the future of mankind

These, these are the days
These, these are the times
Are we just travellers in time
Are we just travellers in time
Are we just travellers in time
Are we just travellers in time
In time, time, time, time, time

04. Conquistador (4:42)


Distant lands are calling you
From far across the sea
Waiting for the stories to be told
The winds of change are blowing down
Across the Spanish main
They carry you towards the land of gold

Conquistador
I see you leaving
Far away you have to go
To distant shores
They are calling
Crying out across the sea

Your stallions ride across the land
Your conquest has begun
You're searching for the kingdom of the sun
A mighty empire found you there
The like you'd never seen
The palace lay before you like a dream

Conquistador
I see you leaving
Far away you have to go
To distant shores
They are calling
Crying out across the sea

The dynasty of Inca gods
No longer rules the land
The sun has set upon the golden king
In galleons anchored off the shore
Their spirits will remain
Your destiny conquistadors of Spain

Conquistador
I see you leaving
Far away you have to go
To distant shores
They are calling
Crying out across the sea

05. What Goes Around, Comes Around (4:24)


Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You're a mind of useless information
I'll make it easy on you
I'll never say what you want me
I'm not a martyr for your cause

What goes around comes around
You're gonna get what's coming to you
What goes around comes around
You're gonna get what's coming to you
You're gonna get what's coming to you, yeah

Can't seem to figure out your problem
I'm just not hearing what you say
You got a mouth just like a shotgun
Go spit your Buckshot out the door

What goes around comes around
You're gonna get what's coming to you
What goes around (yeah) comes around
You're gonna get what's coming to you

I find it easy to see
You're runnin' everywhere
I say to you
I say to you

You live your life outside my back door
I just can't take it anymore
Those seedy games will take you nowhere
Why don't you get yourself a life

What goes around comes around
You're gonna get what's coming to you
What goes around comes around
You're gonna get what's coming to you

What goes around comes around
You're gonna get what's coming to you
What goes around comes around
You're gonna get what's coming to you
Comin' to you

06. Song Of Evil (4:12)


Turn the wheel of torture
Spin the rack of pain
Now many souls will suffer
To satisfy your game
The smell of death surrounds you
How can you hide your shame
Can we stop this nightmare
Before it starts again

How can you sleep at night
Can you hear their voices in your head
We wrote this song for you
This is your song of evil
Song of evil

Stop this reign of terror
Are we all insane
Crush the voice of freedom
How many will remain
The devil walks beside you
Your souls will burn in hell
Your final retribution
When Satan rings the bell

How can you sleep at night
Can you hear their voices in your head
We wrote this song for you
This is your song of evil
Song of evil
Can you hear their voices in your head
This is your song of evil

Turn the screws of torment
Drop the blade of fear
Hear the screams of anguish
There's no mercy here
The smell of death surrounds you
Your souls will burn in hell
Can we stop this nightmare
When Satan rings the bell

How can you sleep at night
Can you hear their voices in your head
We wrote this song for you
This is your song of evil

How can you sleep at night
Can you hear their voices in your head
We wrote this song for you
This is your song of evil
Evil, evil, evil, evil

07. All Guns Blazing (3:53)


All guns blazing

Back's against the wall
Don't let the system break you
Why make it easy for them all
Barricade your doors
Defend yourself don't let them in
Keep hostile forces from your shores

Don't let them grind you down
Keep both feet on the ground
The battle rages on and on
Going in - All guns blazing
Going in - Get out my line of fire
Going in - All guns blazing
Going in - Get out my line of fire
All guns blazing

Together we will stand
Don't let the sword divide you
Draw your line across the sand
Waiting for the fall
Stand your ground we're digging in
This time we rally to the cause

Don't let them grind you down
Keep both feet on the ground
The battle rages on and on
Going in - All guns blazing
Going in - Get out my line of fire
Going in - All guns blazing
Going in - Get out my line of fire

Back's against the wall
Don't let the system break you
Why make it easy for them all
Barricade your doors
Defend yourself don't let them in
Keep hostile forces from your shores

Don't let them grind you down
Keep both feet on the ground
The battle rages on and on
Going in - All guns blazing
Going in - Get out my line of fire
Going in - All guns blazing
Going in - Get out my line of fire

Going in - All guns blazing
Going in - Get out my line of fire
Going in - All guns blazing
Going in - Get out my line of fire

08. Prisoner (4:12)


Too late now, you wait now
You're out of time
New face now, your place now
Is that a crime
Stop talking, keep walking
You missed the sign

You made your choice
It's too late now
You threw it all away
You're just a prisoner
You're just a prisoner of lies
You're just a prisoner
You're just a prisoner of lies

Control you, involve you
You can't deny
You move me, surround me
You mystify
Can't stand it, won't make it
Just pass me by

You made your choice
It's too late now
You threw it all away
You're just a prisoner
You're just a prisoner of lies
You're just a prisoner
You're just a prisoner of lies

Too late now, you wait now
You're out of time
New face now, your place now
Is that a crime
Stop talking, keep walking
You missed the sign

You made your choice
It's too late now
You threw it all away
You're just a prisoner
You're just a prisoner of lies
You're just a prisoner
You're just a prisoner of lies

You're just a prisoner
You're just a prisoner of lies
You're just a prisoner
You're just a prisoner of lies
Prisoner

09. Piss Off (4:04)


How come every time you feel real good
Somebody drops you a piss off bomb
How come every time you roll the dice
Somebody offers you the wrong advise
Oh no not again, just when I'm feeling happy
Oh no not again, just when you're feeling fine

Take it slow, don't go fast
Looking good never lasts
Different day same old song
Then somebody drops you a piss off bomb

In and out, round about, try to sort your feelings out
Can you see the full moon rising
Break the spell, ring the bell, trapped inside your private hell
Can't you see the far horizon
Down, down, drag you down, just when you're feeling happy
Down, down, drag you down, just when you're feeling fine

Take it slow, don't go fast
Looking good never lasts
Different day same old song
Then somebody drops you a piss off bomb

How come every time you feel real good
Somebody drops you a piss off bomb
How come every time you roll the dice
Somebody offers you the wrong advise
Round, round, turn you round, just when you're feeling happy
Down, down, drag you down, just when you're feeling fine

Take it slow, don't go fast
Looking good never lasts
Different day same old song
Then somebody drops you a piss off bomb

10. Watching You (5:18)


Have you ever had the feeling
Someone's watching you
Listening to everything you say
Satellite surveilance
Creeping high above us all
Watching every little thing you do

'Cause they're watching you
They're watching me
Invasion of your privacy

There is no place really left to hide
Everything's in view
Can you see the writings on the wall
We live inside a fish eye lense
There's nothing they can't see
Can you feel them staring in at you (yeah)

They're watching you
They're watching me
Invasion of your privacy

They're watching you
They're watching me
Invasion of your privacy
(Come on)

There's a lens on every corner
No one hides from view
Who's behind the camera
No one has a clue

Are we getting paranoid
Or is it really true
Is the camera zooming in on cue
Take the shot, roll the film
There's nothing more to say
It does no good we'll never get away (yeah)

They're watching you
They're watching me
Invasion of your privacy

They're watching you
They're watching me
Invasion of your privacy

They're watching you
They're watching me
Invasion of your privacy

Watching you
They're watching me
They're watching you
They're watching me
They're watching you
Watching you

11. Sea Of Life (8:11)


A single silent bullet
Flying through the air
Will it find it's target
Fate will take it there
Who's name is written on it
No one has a clue
Will it find a victim
Could be you
I have seen the angel
The messenger of death
Riding out across the crimson sky
He comes to take another soul
Away from the sanctuary
He who plays the game
Must surely die

But someone has to pay the ferryman
To sail across the sea of life
Someone has to pay the ferryman
To sail across the sea of life
Sea of life
Sea of life

Your life is held in balance
On a slender silken thread
Weaving through the tapestries of time
We can walk the road together
Can you take me by the hand
Maybe we can find your promised land
I can hear the darkness falling
Somewhere in the night
Reaching out across the cold black sky
Could this be a twist of fate
Your written destiny
Or could the angel simply pass you by

Someone has to pay the ferryman
To sail across the sea of life
Someone has to pay the ferryman
To sail across the sea of life
Sea of life
Sea of life

Someone has to pay the ferryman
To sail across the sea of life
To sail across the sea of life

A single silent bullet
Flying through the air
Will it find it's target
Fate will take it there
Who's name is written on it
No one has a clue
Will it find a victim
Could be you

Could be you
Could be you
Could be you
Could be, could be you

Sea of life
Could be you
Sea of life
Could be, could be you
Sea of life
Could be you
Sea of life
Could be you
Sea of life
Could be you
Sea of life
Could be, could be you
Sea of life
Could be, could be, could be you
Sea of life
