Track Name: I Live On
Time moves forward, as I do
Never looking back
I did my time for love that betrayed me
I live on

One foot forward moves me close to a new life ahead
Mistakes left behind, unforgiven
And I live on

Lies left behind,
I’m a stranger to my hometown
blood on my hands washed away
And I move on

One foot forward moves me close to a new life ahead
Mistakes left behind, unforgiven

Majestic mountains reaching to the sky
Blinding my vision to the world
Towering above, I cannot see
Trapped inside for all eternity

Time moves forward, as I do
Never looking back
I did my time for love that betrayed me
I live on

One foot forward moves me close to a new life ahead
Mistakes left behind, unforgiven

Majestic mountains reaching to the sky
Blinding my vision to the world
Towering above, I cannot see
Trapped inside for all eternity

I’m trapped
I am trapped inside!
Track Name: Evil Princess
All the leaders have fallen
Screams death ring into the sky
Dungeon steel keeps on calling
Bloodstained walls and the keeper of death

I rise among you; I hold the cold steel in my hands
Insane leaders who live in fear of her

Evil Princess coming for you
Beware of her evil glances
Headless children, killing, torture
Burning corpses, evil princess

Her crimson eyes blaze like fire
Her hair like knives drape to her thighs
As she gazes in her crystal
He anger builds and she blows her mind

Black magic bitch, destroying everyone in her way
She lives in blood, from the dead king she stole from them

Evil Princess coming for you
Beware of her evil glances
Headless children, killing, torture
Burning corpses, evil princess

Evil Princess coming for you
Beware of her evil glances
Headless children, killing, torture
Burning corpses, evil princess
Track Name: The Call of Midnight
Screams in the distance, Fear in the night
Burn the witches
Chants from Beyond, A time that has died
Watch them bleed
Evil’s to sin, and sinners must

Marked by the martyr, burned at the stake
Kill them all
Hunted for crimes not understood, hung and burned

Searching for you, nowhere to run
Flee for your life, death marches on

It’s the call of midnight
Alone in the dark
It’s the call of midnight
To keep fear alive

Dark clouds of anger rip through the sky
Damn the wicked
Fire from your god, disease in your mind
Strike them down

Searching for you, nowhere to run
Flee for your life, death marches on

It’s the call of midnight
Alone in the dark
It’s the call of midnight
To keep fear alive

…to keep it alive!

Evils to sin, sinners must die!

It’s the Call of Midnight!
Track Name: The Beginning Of Our End
What happened to us
Where did we go wrong
Were we in love
Where has it gone

You left me all alone
You said it had to be
Don’t want to hurt me
You set me free

The beginning of our end
All alone here I am
What can I do, I still love you
What can I do, I still love you

What happened to you
Where did you go wrong
Were you in love
Where has it gone

What happened to me
Where did I go wrong
I was in love and it’s all but gone

The beginning of our end
All alone here I am
What can I do, I still love you
What can I do, I still love you
Track Name: Steel Dungeon
Lives of the damned are portrayed
Feel the pain in these walls
Enslaved in the dungeons of steel
Tortured lives, tortured souls

Death and decay, rotting corpses
They lie next to me
And the ground and the steel
The shackles and chains
It takes my silence away

Darkness surrounds me
The screams in these dungeons of pain
As I look up to the sky
See the terror in my eyes

As I lay on my back
In the depth, in the dark
And the stench and decay
In the steel, in the steel
In the steel dungeons
Of my days

Houses of madness and fear
Where the fire dragons dwell
And the ancient rites of the cursed
Battles lost, soldiers killed

Heavens so cold and so dead
Where the dead spirits cry
And the voices call to me
Take my soul take my life

Steel dungeons
Track Name: Morning Light
Lying here in bed
I listen to the soft sounds
Ringing In my head

You soft, spoken voice
Still exists even though you’re gone

Maybe tomorrow, maybe never
I hope to see you again
Knowing I’ll be by your side
That is why I wake
To the morning light

And yet I still wonder
After so much time spent alone at night
Day after day
This burning deep inside
A feeling not feel so long

Maybe tomorrow, maybe never
I hope to see you again
Knowing I’ll be by your side
That is why I wake
To the morning light

It’s too late to go to bed
It’s too late to rise
Only now do I realize
It’s your gentle touch
It is your kiss
In the morning light
That I need
Track Name: The Forsaken
Reaching the sky
Clutching at my heart
The sun begins to die
Leaving me for dead
Scream echoes fades
Last horizon waits
Dark visions gray
The cold silence

No more tomorrow
No more last goodbyes
Until the end of time

Shadows drain my eyes
The blood that fill my veins
The wind of ancient times
Tearing at my soul
Scream echoes fades
Last horizon waits
Dark visions gray
The cold silence

No time for sorrow
No time for the pain
No sign in the heavens
No sign in the rain
No more tomorrow
No more last goodbyes
Until the end of time
I am forsaken

No time for sorrow
No time for the pain
No sign in the heavens
No sign in the rain
No more tomorrow
No more last goodbyes
Until the end of time
Track Name: Negative Attraction
I can’t survive without you
I need the pain in my veins
It seems I’ll never learn

I take my life for granted
Love is found inside of you
I crave the release so bad

Will they care if I die today?
It’s just a small thrill always
Take my life in my own hands
I hope that god will understand

I need a vivid image
To make reality more clear
I feel from grace long ago
Take me my lord if it’s my time
Because I am so afraid to live
And I’m so damn scared to die

Will they care if I die today?
It’s just a small thrill always
Take my life in my own hands
I hope that god will understand

I can’t survive without you
I need the pain in my veins
It seems I’ll never learn

Taking my life for granted
Love is found inside of you
Longing for the temporary pleasure
And this endless pain goes on forever
Track Name: Present Day
Where you gonna go
What’s it gonna be like
What the hell you gonna do
With the rest of your life

There’s a price to be paid
For the choices you’ve made
Everything you do
Well it just comes back
Don’t you try to blame the world
Just give the devil his due

All your dreams stretched out ahead
All the problems you left behind
Looking back on your life
The heart will know you’ve won
And you will see just why you had to work so hard

Why do they take control
Why won’t they let me live my life
Taking my mind and twisting my soul
Why do they take control
Making us their slaves

Fly away your dreams
Don’t give up don’t give in
Just fly away
Tomorrows not what it seems

Testing fate and destiny’s hand at controlling my life
While ascending my dreams
Taking steps one at a time while taking control of my life

And life awaits for your dreams
And life awaits on your dreams
Track Name: One Second Warning
Back in the days where the world was a wasteland
Fear and pestilence would reign
The terror and panic spreads like a wild fire
Brining shrouds of sorrow

Gods of war, gods of the aftermath
Destruction lies in their wake
The violent skies with clouds of uncertainty
Trembling masses gathering near

No time to run
One second warning
Close your eyes
One second warning
Cry out in pain

Plague of lies, a touch of the innocence
All eyes blinded by to sea
Beyond the vengeance awaiting the prophecy
Restoring fate to mankind’s chaos

No time to run
One second warning
Close your eyes
One second warning
Cry out in pain

One second warning
Warning
