Die Apokalyptischen Reiter lyrics
Album: Allegro Barbaro 
|The Last Hope Burned Down To Dust|
To live is to die the last hope burned down to dust|
Out of mind but without any fear waiting for the end now
On our way to downfall, thoughts drifting in the sea of passion
I had read the book of life and it killed me
Hate for your lies burns in my heart
Why does falseness always have to win?
I wanna unfold my soul
Don't wanna be imprisoned by you
My comfort my death will be yours as well
Face to face with death we are all the same
Lost in visions I all hope fades out
What remains is just a high
Sometimes I fear to wake|
Sometimes I fear the next day
Ill humour seems to crush me
Agonising pain stronger than the ideal?
Sometimes I fear that nobody stands up
Sometimes I fear that nobody defends himself
Sometimes I fear to be restless for all eternity and
Sometimes I fear that my fear gets lost
|Perfect Without Mercy|
What has happened with you|
Did your emotions go away?
Just a hunt for bucks
But you've been running behind the life
You've been kicking the beaten ones as winner
Like others have already done it before
|The March Of Revenge|
Famine - The soul of mankind|
Pestilence - The plague of mankind
War - The horror of mankind
Death - The best for mankind
Recompense for your wasted time
Result of your sins
Don't beg for mercy
Your last chance is gone
The time has come for
The march of revenge
You demand humanity, but you are inhuman.
You demand justice, but you are unjust.
You demand love, but you kill.
You want to protect, but you destroy.
Don't beg for mercy
Your last chance has gone
The time has come for
The march of revenge.
We judge, cause we are judges.
We destroy, cause we create.
We create, cause we destroy.
We like to see you suffer.
We, the guardians of this planet!
|The Game Of Violence|
Defeated in the game of violence, screams just dying away|
Defeated in the game of the Teutons, tears accompanying their power
Defeated in the game of lies, the scum feigning you sterile love
Defeated in the game of fate, defeated in the game of violence.
The game of violence deadly silence
Irony of life, you are playing human in vain
Irony of madness, superior cultures, death adorning its traces
Irony of the game, the lust while killing lasts unsatisfied
Irony of violence, your rage your hate your mental agony.
Can you feel the power of this song|
The energy it is giving you
Brothers united in mind
Cause Metal is our law.
HEAVY METAL is our law
HEAVY METAL we are proud and standing tall / we'll never fall
HEAVY METAL is what we feel
HEAVY METAL harder than steel
Proud 'n Free like will of steel
Our hearts are as pure as the silence of a night
We are brothers of METAL united in fight
Cause METAL is our law
Listen to your hearts they don't defraud you
This shall be our fighting song
Even the world is black and hope gets lost
We'll stand together until the end of time
Our life belongs to Heavy Metal
Our fight applies to its enemies
We'll fight for our right
To live like we want.
|Come Dance With Me|
I dance every morning till the sun goes down|
I laugh loud as long the world turns round
The end draws near, every evening, day by day
Come dance with me, it is too late.
The world is black, it's the way it should be
There's not much time left to shoe emotions
And so we dance joyfully into the end
Come with me, I'm prepared
And laughing we dance into the darkness.
Life is seldom beautiful
Be patient, one day you will comprehend
Everyday humanity dies
To love somebody there's not much time
New born megalomanice to possess
To rule is to blame.
Destroyed what once burned so great and glorious inside me|
The fire that never seemed to fade
The life took me every sense
Unimportant all those years of striving for perfect glory.
The flame once burning so great and glorious turned me into stone
Love turned into hate, hope into pain
You shall perish, you who took my dreams
You shall die 1000 years, my hate is blind.
Everything is clear now|
Our aim is fixed in our hearts
If you know the way
Nobody is in the mood to stop you
Don't demean yourself
You've chosen the light
And not the pain
So just live and fight
Ref: No questions, no fear
The solution is near
Much you've got to learn
And great power you will earn
Delight and fortune
Easy to get
For the one, who's finished
With dependence on fate
|The Smell Of Death|
The smell of death is in the air|
And dead bodies I see everywhere
Just machine people, all our hope is lost
The courage the pride the souls have these costs.
You never learned to think
And your ship will sink
I try to see a sign of hope in your eyes
But I just see decay and lies.
Is love pain?|
Fortune paralysed by fear?
The quest of deepest darkness
Although the creature strives for the light.
Love, depraved mysterium ...... revelation?
Are we falling into the most tremendous of all storms
Can eternity only mitigate
The crown of creation rose to rule to be subject.
The beast has left us
Gaja will be the judge
Love, depraved mysterium ....... Revelation ...... Downfall
Love, depraved mysterium ....... Revelation ...... Downfall!
|Total Human End|
The day will come and nothing will be heared.|
That`s the great silence.
This will be the day of retribution for all the pain and injuries the mankind has caused to our mother earth and at the same time the day of deliverance of the earth and of all suffering souls.
All will be silence.
Not a single human voice, no human beeing, conceited about it's ability to speak, can make a single noise.
It seems that the Creation swallows the dull routine of everyday life to get attention for the imminant apocalypse at hand.
The biggest machines and factories, built from "human hands", are quiet, dead and insignificant.
And nature, all living creatures, all the growing and blooming things, the water and the air will be silent. But not dead.
Deep inside the Creation a noise is growing which has never been heared before, born of the the pain and the suffering of every living creature. One can not hear it, but you can feel it in your bones and the whole world is shaking because of it. Penetrating, and it rises up to a river of screaming, draughning everyone and everything. Nothing will be left and in the end there will be a great silence and eternal peace!
