Battle Angels
by S.Blosl, W.Dane
An army of vengeance invading from the sky
Hot wings of iron pierce into the night
Slaughtering the lost souls, the fruit of evil's womb
Their heathen ways have sealed their doom
Echoing across the distant skies
The shout is heard, battle angels cry
You'll all fall on your knees, and hail to our dawn
Crawl on your knees, the slauther is on
The battle is raging, attack formation set
Hot blood flows through the streets, their pact is kept
To rape and kill the martyr, who dwells within this shrine
They did not heed the warning signs
Descending from the clouds, they hunt you still
Battle angels kill your force of will
You'll all fall on your knees, and hail to our dawn
Crawl on your knees, the slaughter is on
Fall on your knees and hail to our dawn
Crawl on your knees, the slaughter is on
Slaughterback to top
Termination Force
by L.Rutledge, W.Dane, J.Sheppard
There's power here, we shall join and make a stand
Fear lives inside your mind and it whispers my command
Our leaders they tell us right and wrong
Rebellion is close at hand
Who are you to say what's right
Spit in your face, we will uprise
Violate, dominate, feel the force to terminate
Who are you to take our lives
Violate, dominate, feel the force to terminate
And so it's done, chaos surrounds this world gone mad
I dream of peace and love
No turning back it's not in their plan
It's over before it began
It's over I've seen the end
We will uprise, take my hand
Termination force will stand
Violate, dominate, feel the force to terminate
We will uprise, take my hand
Violate, dominate, feel the force to terminate
Violate, dominate, feel the force to terminateback to top
Die For My Sins
by L.Rutledge, W.Dane
You're living in a lie
Your tears, repentance fills your eyes
Your life, is not what it seems to be
For you breed agony
Your tortured mind will cry out, take my soul
Die for me, die for my sins for I've seen
My cold and bitter end
Trapped illusions of your fate
Your end is only what you've made
Return, and taste reality again
Your sudden faith is all in vain
Your whithered voice is chanting I'm impure
Die for me, die for my sins for I've seen
My cold and bitter end
Standing at the altar, hands in prayer
Your crystal image shatters
Despair
Suffering, no one can help you now
Betrayed by your worn and tattered vows
You're living in a lie
Your tears, repentance fills your eyes
Your life stands for nothing but your shame
No one else will bear your blame
My mortal life of anguish I've endured
Die for me, die for my sins for I've seen
My cold and bitter end
As you feel the lies hypocrisy chokes the life from you
Die for me, die only for me
Now...DIE!back to top
Soldiers of Steel
by L.Rutledge, W.Dane
Steel eyes stare back at you
Held by his gaze he's healed you
Gripped by terror for now you see
The talisman shall hold the key
The blind prophet shall breath fire
Fortelling dreams of past
And visions of your death
He lies shackled in the mire
And beckons to your cries
Dreaming of your death
Corrupt eyes are filled with hate
Their greedy souls opened hell's gate
The crosses mirror his growing rage
They've breached the keep
He's fled his cage
So I bring black plague unto you
Lightning congeals to kill you
Relentless screams call unto me
We are the soldiers of steel
The blind jackal of remorse
Has chosen you as pawn
And seized your crippled mind
Blue eyes glowing slammed the door
And kill the silence we once knew
Deliverer of mankind
Still I will seek the truth
The pious one can never rule
Prophetic visions are now shown clear
Upon the wall "I will be free"
So I bring black plague unto you
Lightning congeals to kill you
Relentless screams call unto me
We are the soldiers of steel
So I bring black plague unto you your worldback to top
Sanctuary
by L.Rutledge, W.Dane
And by the moonlight flow visions born from darkness
The answers shall now be found
And by the moonlight
All will be revealed, wisdom of the ages falls like rain
I am of the future, take my fire
And release your flame
And so I leave this world, never to return
My candle has been burned, for deliverence I yearn
Time cannot erase the mark I leave on time and space
Sanctuary burns, raging grace
I will live on, pure energy and perfect knowledge
The eye of the storm, judgement now awaits for me
Am I born to darkness or to light?
I'm flying to the sun, wings are stained with blood
My journey has begun, am I blessed or am I damned
Years will melt away
My mortal shell, left to decay
The Sanctuary learns your love and hate
I will live on, pure energy and perfect knowledge
The eye of the storm, judgement now awaits for me
Am I born to darkness or to light?
Enter the Sanctuary
And so I leave this world, never to return
I am the new lifeform, I have seen and you will learn
Time cannot erase, my passage through this sacred place
The Sanctuary's hand, this is your fate.back to top
White Rabbit
by G.Slick
Little Alice is on drugs again
They've bent her little mind
One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall
And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice, when she was just small
When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice, I think she'll know
When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backward
The red Queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head
She's deadback to top
Ascension to Destiny
by L.Rutledge, W.Dane
I was born a warrior, force of steel in my hands
We must fight to save our world
Spread this message through the land
Seize control
We will fight to seize control
We will fight to seize control
And the time has come for man to change
And free this earth from coming plague
Change is coming, my voice shall be heard
A new day dawning, hear my words
I bring truth and understanding to your darkest fears
Ascension to your destiny is drawing near
Taste the wrath of my swift sword, legion of the night
Immortals come to rule to earth on beams of light
Fight to seize control
We will fight to seize control, we will fight
Change is coming, my voice shall be heard
A new day is dawning, hear my words
I bring truth and understanding to your darkest fears
Ascension to your destiny is drawing near
Taste the wrath of my swift sword, legion of the night
Immortals come to rule the earth on beams of light
See the world burning, is this a dream?
Warrior returning, his blood is steel
Time has come for man to change
And free this earth from coming plague
Change is coming, my voice shall be heard
A new day dawning, hear my wordsback to top
The Third War
by L.Rutledge, W.Dane
Staring into the sky, the red glare will blind your eyes
Afraid to see the light
Your fears have spread this plight
No way to kill the power
Behold our race will die
Deathrider comes from above
No place to hide nowhere to run
Deathrider's rage is on the loose
Your neck and its eternal noose
Our leaders have set the course, impending world war
Afraid of what's been lost
Your life the bitter cost
No prayer can stop the third war
Behold the holocaust
Deathrider comes from above
No place to hide nowhere to run
As the city burns I cannot hear your cries
Will our world end in 1999
A fifteenth century seer saw us cast
Into the black, death attacks
Afraid to see the light
Your fears have spread this plight
No way to kill the power
Behold our race will die
Deathrider comes from above
No place to hide nowhere to run
Deathrider's rage is on the loose
Your neck in its eternal nooseback to top
Veil of Disguise
by L.Rutledge, W.Dane
I've passed into the afterworld
To a place where light can't intrude
I bear this curse transcending time
My pain denies my your truths
Dreaming to be free, yet damned to eternity
Dreams can set me free for awhile
Changed to this burning, yet only a child
My soul must feed, their blood has made me King
Look deep in my eyes
And see the calm before the
Storm winds of the damned are unveiled
And so with your blood
I feed and quell my hunger
The boy Pharoah's curse is passed on
Screans of dying, I am back from beyond
Mock my religion, by the power of the Gods I am strong
Rebirth, through fire shall hold your fears at bay
See in my ancient eyes
Rip through my veil of disguise
Prowl in the darkness, pierce your throat
And your lifeforce is drained
Now my disciple, I take you and make you my slave
Rebirth, through fire shall hold your fears at bay
See in my ancient eyes
Rip through my veil of disguise
I have survived the centuries
Waiting for mankind's demise
Surrender to me, and no longer live in terror
Give into me, or live your life in fear
I will dominate the likes of you
I will hunt you with the rising moon
Just one look from me and you are hypnotized
Frozen by the spell within my eyes
By the light, I'm ordained to reign
As I see the sun rise on these ancient sands
My immortal gift lies dying in your hands
The circle is complete...back to top
