A Matter Of Life And Death
Different World

You lead me on a path, keep showing me the way 
I feel a little lost, a little strange today 
I think I'll take a hold of whatever comes my way 
Then we'll see what happens take it day by day 

I thought I had it all, I had it all worked out 
Just what the future held, that there would be no doubt 
But then the card came up and I took another turn 
But I don't know if it's forever that I run 

Tell me what you can hear 
And then tell me what you see 
Everybody has a different way to view the world 
I would like you to know, when you see the simple things 
To appreciate this life it's not too late to learn 

Don't wanna be here 
Somewhere I'd rather be 
But when I get there 
I might find it's not for me 

Tell me what you can hear 
And then tell me what you see 
Everybody has a different way to view the world 
I would like you to know, when you see the simple things 
To appreciate this life it's not too late to learn

Dont know what I want

Feeling more confused 
The more the days go by



These Colours Don't Run

It's the same in every country 
when you say you're leaving 
Left behind the loved ones 
waiting silent in the hall 
Where you're going lies adventure 
others only dream of 
Red and green light this is real 
and so you go to war 

For the passion, for the glory 
for the memories, for the money 
You're a soldier, for your country 
what's the difference, all the same 

Far away from the land of our birth 
We fly a flag in some foreign earth 
We sailed away like our fathers before 
These colours don't run, from cold bloody war 

There is no one that will save you 
going down in flames 
No surrender certain death you 
look in the eye 
On the shores of tyranny you 
crashed a human wave 
Paying for my freedom with your 
lonely unmarked graves 

For the passion, for the glory 
for the memories, for the money 
You're a soldier, for your country 
what's the difference, all the same 

Far away from the land of our birth 
We fly a flag in some foreign earth 
We sailed away like our fathers before 
These colours don't run, from cold bloody war

Brighter Than a Thousand Suns

We are not the sons of God 
We are not his chosen people now 
We have crossed the path he trod 
We will feel the pain of his beginning 

Shadow fingers rise above 
Iron fingers stab the desert sky 
Oh Behold the power of man 
On its tower, ready for the fall 

Knocking heads together well 
Raise a city, build a living hell 
Join the race to suicide 
Listen for the tolling of the bell 

Out of the the universe, a strange love is born 
Unholy union, trinity reformed 

Yellow sun it's evil twin 
in the black the wings deliver him 
We will split our souls within 
Atom seed to nuclear dust is riven 

Out of the the universe, a strange love is born 
Unholy union, trinity reformed 

Out of the darkness, brighter than a thousand suns 
Out of the darkness, brighter than a thousand suns 
Out of the darkness, brighter than a thousand suns 
Out of the darkness, brighter than a thousand suns 

Out of the darkness, brighter than a thousand suns 
Out of the darkness, brighter than a thousand suns 

solo #1 Adrian 

Bury your morals and bury your dead 
Bury your head in the sand 
E equals MC squared, you can relate 
How we made God with our hands 

Whatever would Robert have said to his God 
About he made war with the Sun 
E equals MC squared, you can relate 
How we made God with our hands 

All nations are rising 
Through acid veils of love and hate 
Chain letters of Satan 
Uncertainty led us all to this 

All nations are raising 
Through acid veils of love and hate 
Cold fusion and Fury 

solo #2 Janick 

Divide and conquer while ye may 
Others preach and others fall and pray 
In the bunkers where we'll die 
There the executioners they lie 

Bombers launched with no recall 
Minute warning of the missile fall 
Take a look at your last sky 
Guessing you won't have the time to cry 

Out of the the universe, a strange love was born 
Unholy union, trinity reformed 

Out of the darkness... 
Out of the darkness... 
Out of the darkness, brighter than a thousands suns 

Out of the darkness, brighter than a thousands suns 
Out of the darkness, brighter than a thousands suns 
Out of the darkness, brighter than a thousands suns 
Out of the darkness, brighter than a thousands suns



The Pilgrim

The keys to death and hell 
The ailing kingdom doomed to fail 
The bonds of sin and heart will break 
The pilgrims course will take 

Quelling the devils might 
And ready for eternal fight 
Aching limbs and fainting soul 
Holy battles take their toll 

Liberty and hope divine 
Changing the water into wine 
So to you we bid farewell 
Kingdom of heaven to hell 

Spirit holy life eternal 
Raise me up take me home 
Pilgrim sunrise pagan sunset 
Onward journey begun 

To courage find and gracious will 
Deliver good from ill 
Clean the water clean our guilt 
With us do what you will 

Then will my judge appear 
Bear no false angel that I hear 
For only then I will confess 
To my eternal hell 

Now give us our holy sign 
Changing the water into wine 
So to you we bid farewell 
Kingdom of heaven to hell 

Spirit holy life eternal 
Raise me up take me home 
Pilgrim sunrise pagan sunset 
Onward journey begun

The Longest Day

In the gloom the gathering storm abates 
In the ships gimlet eyes await 
The call to arms to hammer at the gates 
To blow them wide throw evil to its fate 

All summers long the drills to build the machine 
To turn men from flesh and blood to steel 
From paper soldiers to bodies on the beach 
From summer sands to armageddon's reach 

Overlord, your master not your god 
The enemy coast dawning grey with scud 
These wretched souls puking, shaking fear 
To take a bullet for those who sent them here 

The world's alight, the cliffs erupt in flame 
No escape, remorseless shrapnel rains 
Drowning men no chance for a warrior's fate 
A choking death enter hell's gate 

Sliding we go, only fear on our side 
To the edge of the wire, 
and we rush with the tide 
Oh the water is red, 
with the blood of the dead 
But I'm still alive, pray to God I survive 

How long on this longest day 
'Til we finally make it through 
How long on this longest day 
'Til we finally make it through 

How long on this longest day 
'Til we finally make it through 
How long on this longest day 
'Til we finally make it through 

The rising dead, faces bloated torn 
They are relieved, the living wait their turn 
Your number's up, the bullet's got your name 
You still go on, to hell and back again 

Valhalla waits, valkyries rise and fall 
The warrior tombs, lie open for us all 
A ghostly hand reaches through the veil 
Blood and sand, we will prevail 

Sliding we go, only fear on our side 
To the edge of the wire, 
and we rush with the tide 
Oh the water is red, 
with the blood of the dead 
But I'm still alive, pray to God I survive 

How long on this longest day 
'Til we finally make it through 
How long on this longest day 
'Til we finally make it through 

How long on this longest day

How long on this longest day

Out Of the Shadows

Hold a halo round the world 
Golden is the day 
Princes of the Universe, 
your burden is the way 
So there is no better time, 
who will be born today 
A gypsy child at the day break 
A King for a day 

Out of the Shadow and into the sun 
Dreams of the past as the old ways are done 
Oh there is beauty and surely there is pain 
But we must endure it to live again 

Dusty dreams in fading daylight 
Flicker on the walls 
Nothing new your life's adrift 
what purpose to it all? 
Eyes are closed and death is calling 
Reaching out its hand 
Call upon the starlight to surround you 

Out of the Shadow and into the sun 
Dreams of the past as the old ways are done 
Oh there is beauty and surely there is pain 
But we must endure it to live again 

Out of the Shadow and into the sun 
Dreams of the past as the old ways are done 
Oh there is beauty and surely there is pain 
But we must endure it to live again

The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg

Let me tell you 'bout my life, 
Let me tell you 'bout my dreams, 
Let me tell you 'bout the things that happen, always real to me. 

Let me tell you of my hope, of my need to reach the sky, 
Let me take you on an awkward journey, let me tell you why. 
Let me tell you why 

Why should these curses be laid upon me? 
I won't be forgiven 'til I can break free 
What did I do to deserve all this guilt? 
Paid for my sins, for the sale of my soul. 

Demons are trapped all inside my head, 
My hopes have gone, I reach for heaven from hell, 
My sins are many, my guilt is too heavy, 
The pressure of knowing of having what I know 

I'm able to see things, things I don't want to see, 
The lives of a thousand souls weighing down on me 

I know they're crying for help reaching out 
The burden of them will take me down as well 
The sin of a thousand souls not died in vain 
Reincarnates to let me live again 

Someone to save me, 
Something to save me from myself 
To bring salvation 
To exorcise this hell 

Someone to save me, 
Something to save me from myself 
To bring salvation 
To exorcise this hell 

SOLO 

Someone to save me 
Something to save me from my hell 
Our destination 
Away from this nightmare 

Someone to save me 
Something to save me from myself 
To bring salvation 
To exorcise this hell



For the Greater Good of God

Are you a man of peace 
Or a man of holy war 
Too many sides to you 
Don't know which anymore 
So many full of life 
But also filled with pain 
Don't know just how many 
Will live to breathe again 

A life that's made to breathe 
Destruction or defense 
A mind that's vain corruption 
Bad or good intent 
A wolf in sheep's clothing 
Or saintly or sinner 
Or some that would believe 
A holy war winner 

They fire off many shots 
And many parting blows 
Their actions beyond a reasoning 
Only God would know 
And as he lies in heaven 
Or it could be in hell 
I feel he's somewhere here 
Or looking from below 
But I don't know, I don't know 

Please tell me now what life is 
Please tell me now what love is 
Well tell me now what war is 
Again tell me what life is 

More pain and misery in the history of mankind 
Sometimes it seems more like 
The blind leading the blind 
It brings upon us more famine, death and war 
You know religion has a lot to answer for 

Please tell me now what life is 
Please tell me now what love is 
Well tell me now what war is 
Again tell me what life is 

And as they search to find the bodies in the sand 
They find its ashes that are 
Scattered across the land 
And as the spirits seem to whistle on the wind 
A shot is fired somewhere another war begins 

And all because of it you'd think 
That we would learn 
But still the body count the city fires burn 
Somewhere there's someone dying 
In a foreign land 
Meanwhile the world is crying stupidity of man 
Tell me why, tell me why 

Please tell me now what life is 
Please tell me now what love is 
Well tell me now what war is 
Again tell me what life is 

Please tell me now what life is 
Please tell me now what love is 
Well tell me now what war is 
Again tell me what life is 

For the greater good of God (x8) 

Please tell me now what life is 
Please tell me now what love is 
Well tell me now what war is 
Again tell me what life is 

Please tell me now what life is 
Please tell me now what love is 
Well tell me now what war is 
Again tell me what life is 

For the greater good of God (x8) 

He gave his life for us 
He fell upon the cross 
To die for all of those 
who never mourn his loss 
It wasn't meant for us 
to feel the pain again 
Tell me why, tell me why



Lord of Light

There are secrets that you keep 
There are secrets that you keep 
There are secrets that you tell to me alone 
I can't reach things I can't see 
You don't see this strange world 
quite the same as me 
Don't deny me what I am 
Nothing hidden still you fail to see the truth 
These are things you can't reveal 

These are things you can't reveal 

We are part of some strange plan 
Why the slaughter of the brotherhood of man 
Infernal sacrifice of hell 
Fire breathing lead the way 
Mounds of bodies as they all burn into one 
Revenge is living in the past 
Time to look into a new millennium 

Spiral path leads through the maze 
Down into the fiery underworld below 
Fire breathing lead the way 
Lucifer was just an angel led astray 

Free your soul and let it fly 
Give your life to the Lord of Light 
Keep your secrets and rain on me 
All I see are mysteries 

Free your soul and let it fly 
Give your life to the Lord of Light 
Keep your secrets and rain on me 
All I see are mysteries 

We are not worthy in your black 
and blazing eyes 
We gather demons in the mirror every day 
The bridge of darkness casts a 
shadow on us all 
And all our sins to you we give this day 

Others wait their turn 
their lives were meant to last 
Use yours wisely as the light is fading fast 
Free your soul and let it fly 
Mine was caught I couldn't try 
Time returns again to punish all of us 

We are cast out by our bloody father's hand 
We are strangers in this lonely promised land 
We are the shadows of the one unholy ghost 
In our nightmare world the only one we trust 

SOLO 

Free your soul and let it fly 
Give your life to the Lord of Light 
Keep your secrets and rain on me 
All I see are mysteries 

Free your soul and let it fly 
Give your life to the Lord of Light 
Keep your secrets and rain on me 
All I see are mysteries



The Legacy

Tell you a thing 
That you ought to know 
Two minutes of your time 
Then on you go 

Tell tale of the men 
All dressed in black 
That most of them 
Not coming back 

Sent off to the war 
To play little games 
And on their return 
Can't name no names 

Some strange yellow gas 
Has played with their minds 
Has reddened their eyes 
Removed all the lies 

And strange as it sounds 
Death knows no bounds 
How many get well 
Only time will tell 
Only time will tell 

SOLO 

You lie in your death bed now 
But what did you bring to the table 
Brought us only holy sin 
Utter trust is a deadly thing 

To the prayer of holy peace 
We didn't know what was lying underneath 
So how could we be such fools 
And to think that we thought you the answer 

I can't begin to understand in all the lies 
But on your death bed I can see it in you eyes 
Just as clear as all the sweat upon your brow 
It really makes sense I can see it clearly now 

Tangled up in a web of lies 
Could have been a way to prophesise 
Unaware of the consequence 
Not aware of the secrets that you kept 

Nothing that we could believe 
To reveal the façade of faceless men 
Not a thing that we could foresee 
Now a sign that would tell us the outcome 

You had us all strung out with 
promises of peace 
But all along you cover plan was to deceive 
Can it put to rights now only time will tell 
Your prophecies will send us all to hell as well 

Left to all our golden sons 
All to pick up on the peace 
You could have given all of them 
A little chance... at least 

Take the world to a better place 
Given them all just a little hope 
Just think what a legacy 
You know... will leave 

SOLO 

We seem destinated to live in fear 
And some that would say Armageddon is near 
But where there's a life while there's hope 
That man won't self destruct 

Why can't we treat our fellow men 
With more respect and a shake of their hands 
But anger and loathing is rife 
The death on all sides is 
becoming a way of life 

We live in an uncertain world 
Fear understanding and ignorance 
is leading to death 
Only the corpses are left 
For vultures that prey on their bones 

But some are just not wanting peace 
Their whole life is death and misery 
The only thing that they know 
Fight fire with fire life is cheap 

But if they do stop to think 
That man is teetering right on the brink 
But do you think that they care 
They benefit from death and pain and despair
