First Strike Is Deadly
You will pay the price of the master, and the master says ...

Prisoners of the venom master
Guilty for what you've been charged
Sit in cells, condemned to face
The deadly snap of their jaws
Terror stricken, you lie in wait
In the final hour
Knowing of your wretched fate
And the serpent's power

First strike is deadly !

The evil path that you must take
Is filled with the slither of snakes
They're hiding and waiting for the time to lunge
For your flesh and your fate
No one escapes or comes out alive
For the snakes never lose
For if they hit you just one time
You have just faced your doom

First strike is deadly !

Deadly strike, bred to kill
The venoms howling in your veins
Psychotic spell, a gift from hell
The sound of a deadly lead remainsback to top
Into the Pit
Deep in the pit and lying alone
Where death has reared itself a throne
We're all the good, the bad
The worst and the best
And where they land is their eternal rest

Foul plays of passion
At twilight's dim
In joy of woe, of good and sin
Winds of storm and fates overcast
Darkly my presence
Is now your past

Join the insanity
Or die as you fall
Into the pit!
The mass production
And the killing of all
Into the pit!
The future screams for help
Are fading away
Into the pit!
The world tomorrow
Will it die for today?
Into the pit!

So in the sad, silent watches of night
The lonely pathway envisions my sight
Echoes of laughter
And boundless cries
So here I wander under infinite skies

Join the insanity
Or die as you fall
Into the pit!
The mass production
And the killing of all
Into the pit!
The future screams for help
Are fading away
Into the pit!
The world tomorrow
Will it die for today?
Into the pit!back to top
Trial by Fire
I was born into a womb so insane
Over crowded as we share the same veins
You will not be...
More man than me...
I... will not be the other...
I am the one... the chosen son
Who devours and smothers

Violence is not the way...
What am I anyway...

Implantation as they ripped us apart
Joined together cause we share the same heart
You will not be...
More man than me...
You... will not be the other...
I am the one... the chosen son
Who devoured his brother...

Hurt... help... hell...
And now you will see... that we will be
Always... together as one
Always together as... one
Will not be half a man
We're joined together as... one

The dominant son, who was joined as one
Always wonders why
The unborn son, who lives inside his head
Can never die

Violence is not the way...
Damaging vows I take...
The one who was built of rage
Bow down before I
Prayed forgiveness
From the father above
Joined together
But not bonded by love
I will not be...
More man than he...
We... will not have each other...
I am the one... the burden son
Who devoured his brother...

Hurt... help... hell...
And now you will see... that we will be
Always... together as one
Always... together as one
Will not be half a man...
We're joined together as... one...back to top
Disciples of the Watch
Cast to the fire
Banned by the light
Worship and listen to me
Condemned in his mind
In his evil place
Your fate is all that you'll see
I am the one
To show you the path
Salvation is in the fields
Listen up children and follow me
Or I'll let you pay the price
Of malachi!

Disciples of the watch
Obey!
Or I'll burn you to that cross!

Holding the mass
The demon is cast
To resurrect your soul
Calling to him
Is like an evil sin
A prophet is what they're told
Taking the land under command
Killing friend or fore
Feel the might of his evil wrath
Desecrate your soul!

Disciples of the watch
Obey!
Or I'll burn you to that cross!

Cast to the fire
Banned by the light
Worship and listen to me
Condemned in his mind
In his evil place
Your fate is all that you'll see
For I am the one
To show you the path
Salvation is in the fields
Listen up children and follow me
Or I'll let you pay the price
Of malachi!

Disciples of the watch
Obey!
Or I'll burn you to that cross!back to top
The Preacher
In days of old
When the books were untold
Speak of a world crushed by sin.
'the people will mourn
Of a war to be born'
Nobody would listen to him.
Think back in time
When the future you find
Is so faint that it's too hard to see.
Don't disavow his word
For the truth must be heard
Cause the preacher tells visions he sees

In 1906
Like the future predicts
The city will crumble to the bay
Then what's in store
When the worlds go to war?
Peace will have come another day
Then came the one
In the year of '41
Warfare would light up the sky
He beckoned the call
Of the future for all
Blinded by what's in his eyes

In days of old
When the books were untold
Speak of a world crushed by sin.
'the people will mourn
Of a war to be born'
Nobody would listen to him.
Think back in time
When you future you find
Is so faint that it's too hard to see.
Don't disavow his word
For the truth must be heard
Cause the preacher tells visions he sees.

Listen to these words I preach
Catastrophic lessons they shall teach (x2)back to top
Burnt Offerings
Summoned to the house of seance
To play the evil tarot cards
To find out what our fate will bring us
Before the war

Approaching now the hour of tiamat
Evil feelings in the air
The chosen wait impatiently
To find the rituals of power
Come out of the fire
Making the legacy known
Predicted by the past
Takes it's toll at last
Now knowing when it strikes

The endless feuding shows it's fate
The people are all shocked with fright
They know the end is coming near
It's time to fight
The revolution holds on strong
The armies have all met their match
Entire world up in arms
Destruction sees the spirits of anger
Come up from the gallows
Conjured my demons appear
Summoned to my cast, prey this deadly mass
Taken by the fire you fail

The world became a vast wasteland
Survivors turn into cannibals
Killing everything in sight
Warfare tonight
The armies are all closing in
The population's getting small
Feelings are as cold as ice
Survival names it's price
Starting to burn
The rape and violence grows high
A kingdom will rise
To rule with contempt
They will surprise
Kill and repent
The weakness in armies
'won't die'

Leaving now the house of seance
Speculating destiny
Wonder if the cards were true
Will wait to find out and will wait to seeback to top
Over the Wall
I've been a prisoner
Trapped in by fear
Ordered for the rest of my life
Condemned in a jail cell
Ain't seen life in years
Escape is the only way out

Restart my life or self destruction
To climb this wall of dark construction
Holding the quest for freedom
That beckons me

My sanity is all but gone
My patience is growing very weak
I need to get a hold of myself
I stare at the wall
For the right time has come
Escape must occur on this night

Restart my life or self destruction
To climb this wall of dark construction
Holding the quest for freedom
That beckons me

Stand in my way
And I'll run you straight through
There's no one to stop me now
For I'm on the loose
And I'm ready to start
Torture and hell on this town

Over the wall !

The search will not stop
And the hounds will not rest
Till I am back in my cell
For if I am caught
I will try it again
Over the wall I will go ...

I will go !
Go !

Restart my life or self destruction
To climb this wall of dark construction
Holding the quest for freedom
That beckons meback to top
The New Order
===================
Hear the screams, screams of fright
Shrieks of terror through the night
Souls of old band to hold
The meeting for the haunting night
Headless ghosts fill the halls
Shadow plays of grief and pain
Phantom speaks his final note
Tenants of the castle slain
Black cats will appear
As the witching hour nears
Lost souls will all be told
For a haunting we will go
See their dreams come to life
Under pressure holding tight
Feel the cold grabbing hold
To feed you on the haunting night
Evil witch, black as pitch
Starts a fire with a flinch
Burning fire rising higher
Making music like a choir
Children of the night
They're howling at black skies
The ruthless calls within
For the haunting now begins
Stay away from the shining light
Can't seem to find the answers there
Bring back the terror in the night
That we all share tonight
Hear the screams, screams of fright
Shrieks of terror through the night
Souls of old band to hold
The meeting for the haunting night
Headless ghosts fill the halls
Shadow plays of grief and pain
Phantom speaks his final note
Tenants of the castle slain
Black cats will appear
As the witching hour nears
Lost souls will all be told
For a haunting we will goback to top
The Haunting
Hear the screams, screams of fright
Shrieks of terror through the night
Souls of old band to hold

Headless ghosts fill the halls

Black cats will appear
As the witching hour nears
Lost souls will all be told
For a haunting we will go

See their dreams come to life
Under pressure holding tight
Feel the cold grabbing hold

Burning fire rising higher

Alone in the Dark
When I was but very young
Sorcerers came to claim my mind
Leaving death and hatred to unmask
The master of the game had won
And let his final sin be known
Killing those who stand in his path

Alone in the dark, where the demons are torturing me
The dark passage of revenge is all that I see

Armies of witches are called in from the north
Murder of the elders occur
The high priest of evil has lowered his iron fist
Thousands of people have died

The slaughter of the innocent
The house is burning that lights the sky
My nightmare has begun to unfold
The hissing of the cobra's tongue
Sound and feel of ripping flesh
Fall two thousand feet sky

My terror has controlled my life
And let my only weakness known
I got to rid this hell from my head
I fight off evil sorcerers
Rid my mind of his torture
And meet the falling angel in his realm

Alone in the dark, where the demons are torturing me
The dark passage of revenge is all that I see

Faustus prepares the legions of the night
Diviners from the far north arrive
Aimlessly people there huddled in a pack
Wreaking deadly havoc on mankind

I fall in my deepest sleep
To meet the evil asteroth
His title is the grand duke of hell
I fight until the end is near
To rid my mind of hopes and fears
My destination lies in my dreams

Set me free !

When I was but very young
Sorcerers came to claim my mind
Leaving death and hatred to unmask
The master of the game had won
And let his final sin be known
Killing those who stand in his path

Alone in the dark, where the demons are torturing me
The dark passage of revenge is all that I see

Armies of witches are called in from the north
Murder of the elders occur
The high priest of evil has lowered his iron fist
Thousands of people will dieback to top
Reign of Terror
Marching our way through the crypts of the dead
Taking his land by command
Killing our victims and taking no slaves
Hitler's final third reich
Engines are roaring the warheads ablast
The destroyer claims their fate
Hells legions armies
They march to defy
Lucifer takes his wait

Obeying this task by our leaders will
Death camps have taken their toll
The cold winds of winter are present forever
Destroyers claim their fate

Fighting our way through the mist of the night
Taking the life from young souls
Marching our armies prepared to fight
The cities all laid destroyed
Machineguns are firing the tanks are ablast
Bombing our way through hell
Generals smiling destruction strikes
Our armies have done well

Obeying this task by our leaders will
Death camps have taken their toll
The cold winds of winter are present forever
Destoyers claim their fate

Though the dead have trapped us in
We'll break the pact a deadly whim
Faisoned hammers wielded straight
Cursing us back to hell's gates

Black magic force thats taken it's course
The world lives in fear
The death calls are near

Awaiting this task battle at last
The worlds left to defy
Now's the time for you to die

Marching our way through the crypts of the dead
Taking his land by command
Killing our victims and taking no slaves
Hitler's final third reich
Engines are roaring the warheads ablast
The destroyer claims their fate
Hells legions armies
They march to defy
Lucifer takes his wait

Obeying this task by our leaders will
Death camps have taken their toll
The cold winds of winter are present forever
Destoyers claim their fateback to top
