LYRICS

 

1. Battalions Of Steel


Take up your sword the sword of the brave
You fight for legion you fight to the grave
For death and for glory your spirit won't die
Legions of steel to battle you cry
Hail to the heroes stand to the last
Gone are warriors they call from the past

Battalion's battalions of steel
Riding out to glory and fame

To march or to die that was your creed
Comrades in arms an army of steel
No one can stand your power and might
Onwards together into the fight
Hail to the heroes stand to the last
Gone are warriors they call from the past

Battalion's battalions of steel
Riding out to glory and fame
Battalion's battalions of steel
Marching out to glory and fame

Legions of steel to battle they cry
Marching to glory their spirits won't die
For death and for glory your fight to the grave
Raise up your sword the sword of the brave
Hail to the heroes stand to the last
Gone are warriors they call from the past

Battalion's battalions of steel
Riding out to glory and fame
Battalion's battalions of steel
Marching out to glory and fame

2. Live To Rock


Ooh,You gotta live to rock

When I was a boy I didn't know what I should do
They said get an education you got to forget about the blues
But I was hooked on rock and roll I got a demon in my soul
I gotta wanting the say I gotta, gotta break away

You gotta live to rock
Never stop
You gotta live to rock
Blow your top

I could have been a soldier I could have been a lawyer
I could have been a teacher what about a preacher
But I got news for you I just dig these rhythm and blues
I was waiting for the day when I could when I could break away

Live to rock
Never stop
Live to rock
Now blow your top

I could have been a lawyer
I could have been a teacher
what about a preacher

Just follow the rules that's what they said to me
You got to get an education you got to forget about the blues
But I was hooked on rock and roll I got a demon in my soul
I got one thing to say you got to let the music play

Live to rock
Never stop
Live to rock
Blow your top

Live to rock
Never stop
You gotta live to rock
Now blow your top

You gotta live to rock
You gotta never, never, never, never stop
Live to rock
You gotta blow your top

Live to rock
Never stop
You gotta live to rock
Blow your top

Live to rock
Never stop
You gotta live to rock
Gotta never, never, never, never stop
You gotta live to rock

3. Demon Sweeney Todd


Come hear the story come gather round
About the demon of London town

Come hear the story come gather round
About the demon of London town
I bid you welcome you hear him call
Behind these doors he'll serve you all
Feel the knife on your skin now you pay for your sin
Let the blood start to flow
Full of panic and fear whispered words in your ear

I am the demon Sweeney Todd
Demon Sweeney Todd

Come death and murder that was his trade
He strips your bones for the bargain he made
Below the chamber he cuts at your flesh
A pile of meat is all that is left
Feel the knife on your skin now you pay for your sin
Let the blood start to flow
Full of panic and fear whispered words in your ear

I am the demon Sweeney Todd
Demon Sweeney Todd

They say he's crazy he's just insane
Some say revenge was the reason he came
He was the demon of London town

Some say he's crazy some say he's mad
Some say revenge is what drove him to bad
Was he a vicious black lies?
I am the demon the demon he cries
Feel the knife on your skin now you pay for your sin
Let the blood start to flow
Full of panic and fear whispered words in your ear

Feel the knife on your skin now you pay for your sin
Let the blood start to flow
Full of panic and fear whispered words in your ear

I am the demon Sweeney Todd
Demon Sweeney Todd
Demon Sweeney Todd
Demon Sweeney Todd

4. The Letter


I'm writing you this letter
From a dark and lonely place
I hope it finds you well
I long for your embrace but I sit here in my solitude
I fear the worst for I have seen a vision the vision of my curse
Of my curse

5. Valley Of The Kings


You must journey across the sea
Find the secret destiny
Burning sand scorching sun
To the land of the ancient one
The hidden tomb the last in line
Lost forever in sands of time
Find the key unlock the past
You have no choice this is your task

In the valley of the kings
There he waits on golden wings
Break the seal and set him free
The golden one your destiny

Waiting there for you to come
A royal prince the chosen one
Move the stone unleash the past
The one you seek you'll find at last
The boyhood king he walks the past
He hides behind his golden mask
Deep inside his tomb of gold
The greatest story ever told

In the valley of the kings
There he waits on golden wings
Break the seal and set him free
The golden one your destiny

Dig my friends set him free
Read the words the prophecy
Death will come on swiftest wings
Whoever moves this sleeping king
Carved in stone the book of death
The pharaohs curse will take your breath

Death will come on swiftest wings
For those who move this sleeping king
Heed you now the book of death
Beware the curse with every step
Shine the light the glint of gold
With racing hearts the past unfolds
Open now for all to see
A pharaohs tomb your legacy

In the valley of the kings
There he waits on golden wings
Break the seal and set him free
The chosen one your destiny

In the valley of the kings
There he waits on golden wings
Break the seal and set him free
The chosen one your legacy

6. Slow Lane Blues


I was driving down the route doing 185
Just me and my friends out for a drive
I should have seen the trouble looming ahead
Should have known better I was into the red
But I never saw the gun I never saw the law
Hiding in back of a 4 by 4

Caught on a photograph guilty of driving fast
But some days you've got to lose
I'm in the slow lane I've got the slow lane blues
Slow lane blues

They took me to the side and gave me some grief
Said I was crazy I couldn't believe
Good cop bad cop they played the routine
They took away my car I tossed them the keys
Their was nothing on the road when I gave it the gas
I never saw the law we were having a blast

Caught on a photograph guilty of driving fast
But some days you've got to lose
I'm in the slow lane I've got the slow lane blues
I gotta blues

They said I had it coming a matter of time
Driving like a fool ignoring the signs
But I never saw the gun I never saw the law
Hiding in the back of a 4 by 4

Caught on a photograph guilty of driving fast
But some days you've got to lose
I'm in the slow lane
I was caught on a photograph guilty of driving fast
But some days you've got to lose
I'm in the slow lane I've got the slow lane blues

7. Crime Of Passion


Turn up the heat don't be discreet just let your feelings flow
Can't get enough you fill my cup I'll drink until I crawl
I can't put out my fire you've got what I desire just give it up to me
What I want is what I see

You're just a crime of passion you're guilty of dragging me in
You're just a crime of passion I'm guilty a fool for your sin

You are the one you load my gun
I'm gonna shoot on sight
Don't make a sound I'm going down
I'll stay until you come
I can't put out my fire you've got what I desire
Just give it up to me what I want is what I see

You're just a crime of passion you're guilty I'm turning you in
You're just a crime of passion I'm guilty of living in sin
You guilty in sin

You fill my cup can't get enough just let the feelings flow
You are the one you load my gun you make me shoot on sight
I can't put out my fire you've got what I desire
Just give it up to me what I want is what I see

You're just a crime of passion you're guilty of dragging me in
You're just a crime of passion I'm guilty a fool for your sin
And just you're just a crime of passion you're guilty I'm turning you in
And just you're just a crime of passion I'm guilty of living in sin
And fool for your sin

9. Voice


You called my name
Deep in the coldest blackest night
You saved my life
I heard your voice deep in the night
But in my nightmare I start to scream
In my nightmare this is no dream

Who called my name who saved my life
Deep in the night I heard your voice

I saw the flames
I watched our memories turn to dust
I saw them burn
I walked away not looking back
But in my nightmare I start to scream
In my nightmare this is no dream
This is no dream

Who called my name who saved my life
Deep in the night I heard your voice

Wake up, wake up, wake up

In my nightmare I start to scream
In my nightmare this is no dream

Sometimes I wake
I see the fire in the night
It's only dreams
I hear your voice deep in the night
But in my nightmare I start to scream
In my nightmare this is no dream

Who called my name who saved our lives
Deep in the night I heard your voice
Who called my name who saved my lives
Deep in the night I heard your voice

10. Protect Yourselves


Everything is changing soon the writings on the wall
Just sit there and deceive yourself but everything will fall
The seas will rise across the land and sweep it all away
Anarchy will be the game and everyone must play

Protect yourselves when the dark times come
Protect yourselves you're not the only ones

When you see the warning signs the change will come too late
Everyone will save themselves for we have sealed our fate
The sun will beat upon the earth burning all before
Everything is changing soon nothing like before

Protect yourselves when the darkness comes
Protect yourselves you're not the only ones

Prepare yourself for anarchy soon the end will come
Sit there and delude yourself there's nowhere left to run
The seas will rise across the land and sweep us all away
Everything is changing soon that's the price we pay

Protect yourselves when the darkness comes
Protect yourselves you're not the only ones
Protect yourselves when the darkness comes
Protect yourselves you're not the only ones

11. Hellcat


Shooting fast across the sky
Hellcat coming gonna die
Twist and turn you're on the run
Diving fast across the sun

Hellcat, hellcat look into the fire
Hellcat, hellcat build the funeral pyre
Hellcat, hellcat dance across the sky
Hellcat, hellcat where're all going to die

Nowhere left for you to run
Can't escape the loaded gun
See the beast and death will come
The end in Nye the job is done

Hellcat, hellcat look into the fire
Hellcat, hellcat build the funeral pyre
Hellcat, hellcat dance across the sky
Hellcat, hellcat where're all going to die

Ride the beast across the sky
Hellcat coming gonna die
Twist and turn you're on the run
Can't escape the loaded gun

Hellcat, hellcat look into the fire
Hellcat, hellcat build the funeral pyre
Hellcat, hellcat dance across the sky
Hellcat, hellcat where're all going to die

Hellcat, hellcat look into the fire
Hellcat, hellcat build the funeral pyre
Hellcat, hellcat dance across the sky
Hellcat, hellcat where're all going to die
Where're all going to die

12. Come Rock Of Ages (The Circle Is Complete)


Did you see the signs has the time begun
It was the seventh star of the seventh sun
Round and round this circle turns
The planets all align this is the time
This is the hour we've waited for the sign

Come rock of ages
We worship at your feet
Now is the time
The circle is complete
Come rock of ages

Now the circle turns on the wheel of life
Will the lines converge to a point of light
Round and round we gather here
The planets all align this is the time
This is the hour our destines entwine

Come rock of ages
We worship at your feet
Now is the time
The circle is complete
Come rock of ages

It was the seventh star of the seventh sun
Did you read the signs has the time begun
Round and round this circle turns
The planets all align this is the time
This is the hour we've waited for the sign

Come rock of ages
We worship at your feet
Now is the time
The circle is complete

Come rock of ages
We worship at your feet
Now is the time
The circle is complete
Come rock of ages
Rock of ages

13. Coming Home (Bottleneck Version)


Take a plane, take a pill
Need some sleep, feel like hell
In my suitcase that's my life
Thoughts of you cut me like a knife

But long, long gone down that lonely road
But it won't be long until I'm coming home

Another ticket, another town
Here lonely miles, the days drag me down
On this highway going anywhere
I hear your voice when there's no one there

But long, long gone down that lonely road
But it won't be long until I'm going home
Get up

Take a boat, take a train
Need some comfort to ease my pain
Out my window I sit and stare
The days drag by, baby when you're not there

Gone, gone, gone, gone down that lonely road
But it won't be long until I'm coming home

But long, long gone down that lonely road
But it won't be long until I'm coming home
But it won't be long until I'm going home
Yes it won't be long until I'm going home
I'm going home
It won't be long
