Wildest Dreams [3:52] 
(Smith, Harris)

I'm gonna organize some changes in my life 
I'm gonna exorcise the demons of my past 
I'm gonna take the car and hit the open road 
I'm feeling ready to just open up and go 

And I just feel I can be anything 
That all I might ever wish to be 
and fantasize just what I want to be 
Make my wildest dreams come true 

I'm on my way 
Out on my own again 
I'm on my way 
Out on the road again 

When I remember back to how that things just used to be 
And I was stuck inside a shroud of misery 
I felt I'd disappeared so deep inside myself 
I couldn't find a way to break away the hell 

When I'm feeling down and low 
I vow I'll never be the same again 
I just remember what I am 
And visualize just what I'm gonna be 

I'm on my way 
Out on my own again 
I'm on my way 
Out on the road again 

I'm on my way 
Out on my own again 
I'm on my way 

I'm gonna breakaway

Rainmaker [3:48] 
(Murray, Harris, Dickinson)

When I was wandering in the desert 
And was searching for the truth 
I heard a choir of angels calling out my name 
I had the feeling that my life would never be the same again 
I turned my face towards the barren sun 

And I know of the pain that you feel the same as me 
And I dream of the rain as it falls upon the leaves 
And the cracks in our lives like the cracks upon the ground 
They are sealed and are now washed away 

You tell me we can start the rain 
You tell me that we all can change 
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears away 
You tell me we can start the rain 
You tell me that we all can change 
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears..... 

And I know of the pain that you feel the same as me 
And I dream of the rain as it falls upon the leaves 
And the cracks in the ground like the cracks are in our lives 
They are sealed and now far away 

You tell me we can start the rain 
You tell me that we all can change 
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears away 
You tell me we can start the rain 
You tell me that we all can change 
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears..... 

And I know of the pain that you feel the same as me 
And I dream of the rain as it falls upon the leaves 
And the cracks in the ground like the cracks are in our lives 
They are sealed and now far away


No More Lies [7:21] 
 (Harris)

There's a darkened sky before me 
There's no time to prepare 
Salvage a last horizon 
But no regrets from me 

Maybe I'll be back some other day 
To live again just who can say 
In what shape or form that I might be 
Just another chance for me 

A hurried time no disgrace 
Instead of racing to conclusion 
And wishing all my life away 
No-one can stop me now 

Time is up it couldnt last 
But there's more things I'd like to do 
I'm coming back to try again 
Someday maybe I'll wait till then 

No more lies 
No more lies 
No more lies 
No more lies 

They're all sitting at my table 
Talking tall and drinking wine 
Their time is up just like me 
But they just dont know it yet 

So just a word of warning 
When you're in your deepest dream 
There's nothing you can hide from 
I've got my eye on you 

The clock is fast the hour is near 
Eventful past is everclear 
My life is set the time is here 
I think I'm coming home 

No more lies 
No more lies 
No more lies 
No more lies 

A hurried time no disgrace 
Instead of racing to conclusions 
And wishing all your life away 
No-one can stop me now 

Time is up it couldnt last 
But there's more things I'd like to do 
I'm coming back to try again 
Someday maybe I'll wait till then 

No more lies 
No more lies 
No more lies 
No more lies 
No more lies


Montségur [5:50]
(Gers, Harris, Dickinson)

I stand alone in this desolate space 
In death they are truly alive 
Massacred innocence, evil took place 
The angels were burning inside 

Centuries later I wonder why 
What secret that they took to their grave 
Still burning heretics under our skies 
Religion's still burning inside 

At the gates and the walls of Montségur 
Blood on the stones of the citadel 
At the gates and the walls of Montségur 
Blood on the stones of the citadel 
At the gates and the walls of Montségur 
Blood on the stones of the citadel 
At the gates and the walls of Montségur 
Blood on the stones of the citadel 

As we kill them all so god will know his own 
The innocents died for the pope on his throne 
Catholic greed and its paranoid zeal 
Curse of the grail and the blood of the cross 

Templar believers with blood on their hands 
Joined in the choruse to kill on demand 
Burned at the stake for their soul's liberty 
To stand with the cathars to die and be free 

The book of old testament crippled and black 
Satan his weapon is lust 
As for the knowleadge of god they had claimed 
Religion's still burning inside 

At the gates and the walls of Montségur 
Blood on the stones of the citadel 
At the gates and the walls of Montségur 
Blood on the stones of the citadel 
At the gates and the walls of Montségur 
Blood on the stones of the citadel 
At the gates and the walls of Montségur 
Blood on the stones of the citadel 

As we kill them all so god know his own 
Laugh at the darkness and in god we trust 
The eye of the triangle smiling with sin 
No passover feast for the cursed within 

Facing the sun as they went to their grave 
Burn like a dog or you live like a slave 
Death is the price for your soul's liberty 
To stand with the cathars and to die and be free 

At the gates and the walls of Montségur 
Blood on the stones of the citadel 
At the gates and the walls of Montségur 
Blood on the stones of the citadel


Dance Of Death [8:36] 
(Gers, Harris)

Let me tell you a story to chill the bones 
about a things that I saw 
One night wandering in the everglades 
I'd one drink but no more 

I was rambling, enjoying the bright moonlight 
Gazing up at the stars 
Not aware of a presence so near to me 
Watching my every move 

Feeling scared and I fell to my knees 
As something rushed me from the trees 
Took me to an unholy place 
And that is where I fell from grace 

Then they summoned me over to join in with them 
To the dance of the dead 
In to the circle of fire I followed them 
In to the middle I was led 

As if time had stopped still I was numb with fear 
But still I wanted to go 
And the blaze of the fire did no hurt upon me 
As I walked onto the coals 

And I felt I was in a trance 
And my spirit was lifted from me 
And if only someone had the chance 
To witness what happened to me 

And I danced and I pranced and I sang with them 
All had death in their eyes 
Lifeless figures they were undead all of them 
They had ascended from hell 

As I danced with the dead 
my free spirit was laughing and howling down at me 
Below my undead body just danced the circle of dead 

Until the time came to reunite us both 
My spirit came back down to me 
I didn't know if I was alive or dead 
As the others all joined in with me 

By luck then a skirmish started 
And took the attention away from me 
When they took their gaze from me 
Was the moment that I fled 

I ran like hell faster than the wind 
But behind I did not glance 
One thing that I did not dare 
Was to look just straight ahead 

When you know that your time has come around 
You know you'll be prepared for it 
Say your last goodbyes to everyone 
Drink and say a prayer for it 

When you're lying in your sleep, when you're lying in your bed 
And you wake from your dreams to go dancing with the dead 
When you're lying in your sleep, when you're lying in your bed 
And you wake from your dreams to go dancing with the dead 

To this day I guess I'll never know 
Just why they let me go 
But I'll never go dancing no more 
'Til I dance with the dead

Gates Of Tomorrow [5:12]
(Gers, Harris, Dickinson)

Weaving a thread round your heart and your soul 
Deceiving your eyes and delaying your goal 
Ships in the night when they pass out of sight 
Deliver their cargo of earthly delights 
To the women and the children the souls of the dead 
I've opened their book and no mercy is shed 

You want forgiveness and you want it cheap 
I don't give redemption rewards for the meek 
Suffering evil when you pay the price of fame 
There isn't a god to save you if you don't save yourself 
You can't blame a madman if you go insane 
Give me the strength so I carry on 

Trapped in the web but I cut the threads 
Show you the gates of tomorrow 
Trapped in the web no mercy is shed 
Show you the gates of tomorrow 
Trapped in the web slaves to the dead 
Show you the gates of tomorrow 
Trapped in the web but I cut the threads 
Show you the gates of tomorrow 

Suffering evil when you pay the price of fame 
There isn't a god to save you if you don't save yourself 
You can't blame a madman if you go insane 
Give me the strength so I carry on 

Trapped in the web but I cut the threads 
Show you the gates of tomorrow 
Trapped in the web no mercy is shed 
Show you the gates of tomorrow 
Trapped in the web slaves to the dead 
Show you the gates of tomorrow 
Trapped in the web but I cut the threads 
Show you the gates of tomorrow


New Frontier [5:04] 
(McBrain, Smith, Dickinson)

Bleeding you dry from the start 
The sum of my parts 
To give it away 
New life in a day 
Some new Frankenstein 
Damned for all time 

Cursed by the angel who fell 
Who saves me from hell? 
And who is my god? 
And where is my soul? 
Too tired to jump too young to run 

Neverending forever searching 
Chasing dreams, the dreams of my heart 
Always seeking always asking 
Questions right from the start 

Out beyond the new frontier 
Playing god without mercy without fear 
Create a beast made a man without a soul 
Is it worth the risk a war of god and man? 
Is it worth the risk a war of god and man? 

I want to end my life now, but I don't know how 
Recycled again a lifetime of pain 
The spawn of a man 
The devil has planned 

Neverending forever searching 
Chasing dreams, the dreams of my heart 
Always seeking always asking 
Questions right from the start 

Out beyond the new frontier 
Playing god without mercy without fear 
Create a beast made a man without a soul 
Is it worth the risk a war of god and man? 
Is it worth the risk a war of god and man?

Paschendale [8:27]
(Smith, Harris)

In a foreign field he lay 
Lonely soldier unkown grave 
On his dying words he prays 
Tell the world of Paschendale 

Relive all that he's been through 
Last communioun of his soul 
Rust your bullets with his tears 
Let me tell you 'bout his years 

Laying low in a blood filled trench 
Kill time 'til my very own death 
On my face I can feel the falling rain 
Never see my friends again 

In the smoke in the mud and lead 
Smell the fear and the feeling of dread 
Soon be time to go over the wall 
Rapid fire and the end of us all 

Whistles, shouts and more gun fire 
Lifeless bodies hang on barbed wire 
Battlefield nothing but a bloody tomb 
Be reunited with my dead friends soon 

Many soldiers eighteen years 
Drown in mud no more tears 
Surely a war no-one can win 
Killing time about to begin 

Home, far away 
From the war, a chance to live again 
Home, far away 
But the war, no chance to live again 

The bodies of ours and our foes 
The sea of death it overflows 
In no man's land god only knows 
Into jaws of death we go 

Crucified as if on a cross 
Allied troops they mourn their loss 
German war propaganda machine 
Such before has never been seen 

Swear I heard the angels cry 
Pray to god no more may die 
So that people know the truth 
Tell the tale of Paschendale 

Cruelty has a human heart 
Everyman does play his part 
Terror of the men we kill 
The human heart is hungry still 

I stand my ground for the very last time 
Gun is ready as I stand in line 
Nervous wait for the whistle to blow 
Rush of blood and over we go 

Blood is falling like the rain 
It's crimson cloak unveils again 
The sound of guns can't hid their shame 
And so we die on Paschendale 

Dodging shrapnel and barbed wire 
Running straight at the cannon fire 
Running blind as I hold my breath 
Say a prayer symphony of death 

As we charge the enemy lines 
A burst of fire and we go down 
I choke a cry but no-one hears 
Fell the blood go down my throat 

Home, far away 
From the war, a chance to live again 
Home, far away 
But the war, no chance to live again 

See my spirit on the wind 
Across the lines beyond the hill 
Friend and foe will meet again 
Those who died at Paschendale


Face In The Sand [6:31]
(Smith, Harris, Dickinson)

Everybody's waiting for something to happen 
Everybody's waiting for something to see 
Lunatics waiting for bigger disasters 
Everyone's waiting for news on TV 

Winding lives at the end of the spiral 
Waiting dictators with their next big thrill 
Everyone's looking but no one is listening 
Everybody wants to be in at the kill 

I wait for the signs, they tell me true 
I see the signs of the end of time 

Everyone's searching but nothing's revealing 
Everyone's looking for the reason why 
Everyone's hoping for life everafter 
Everyone's looking at death from the sky 

Everyone's nightmares are going to happen 
Everybody's ripping the mask from their eyes 
Everyone's praying but no one's believing 
Everyone's heroes tell everyone's lies 

So I watch and I wait 
And I pray for an awnser 
An end to the strife and the world's misery 
But the end never came 
And we're digging the graves 
And we're loading the guns for the kill 

Can the end be at hand? 
Is the face in the sand? 
Future memory of our tragedy 

Can the end be at hand? 
Is the face in the sand? 
Future memory of our tragedy


Age Of Innocence [6:10]
(Murray, Harris)

I can't be compromising in my thoughts no more 
I can't prevent the times my anger fills my heart 
I can't be sympathizing with a new lost cause 
I feel I've lost my patience with the world and all 

And all the politicians and their hollow promises 
And all the lies, deceit and shame that goes with it 
The working man pays everything for their mistakes 
And with his life too if there was to be a war 

So we can only get one chance can we take it 
And we only got one life can't exchange it 
Can we hold on to what we have don't replace it 
The age of innocence is fading.......like an old dream 

A life of petty crime gets punished with a holiday 
The victims' mind are scarred for life most everyday 
Assailants know just how much further that can go 
They know the laws are soft conviction chances low 

So we can only get one chance can we take it 
And we only got one life can't exchange it 
Can we hold on to what we have don't replace it 
The age of innocence is fading.......like an old dream 

You can't protect yourselves even in your own home 
For fear of vigilante cries the victims wipe their eyes 
So now the criminal they launch right in our face 
Judical system lets them do it, a disgrace 

Despondent public worries where it will all end 
We can't protect ourselces our kids from the crime trend 
We cannot even warn each other of evil in our midst 
They have more rights than us, you cannot call that just 

So we can only get one chance can we take it 
And we only got one life can't exchange it 
Can we hold on to what we have don't replace it 
The age of innocence is fading.......like an old dream 

The age of innocence is fading like an old dream


Journeyman [7:06]
(Smith, Harris, Dickinson)

From the red sky of the east 
To the sunset in the west 
We have cheated death 
And he has cheated us 

But that was just a dream 
And this is what it means 
We are sleeping and we'll dream for evermore 

And the fragment remains of our memories 
And the shadows remain with our hands 
Deep grey, came to mourn 
All the colours of the dawn 
Will this Journeymans day be his last? 

I know what I want 
And I say what I want 
And no one can take it away 
I know what I want 
And I say what I want 
And no one can take it away 

But the memory still remains 
All the past years not so stange 
Our winter times are like a silent shroud 

And the heartbeat of the day 
Drives the mist away 
And winter's not the only dream around 

In your life you may choose desolation 
And the shadows you build with your hands 
If you turn to the light 
That is burning in the night 
Then the Journeyman's day has begun 

I know what I want 
And I say what I want 
And no one can take it away 
I know what I want. 
And I say what I want 
And no one can take it away 

In your life you may choose desolation 
And the shadows you build with your hands 
If you turn to the light 
That is burning in the night 
Then the Journeyman's day has begun 

I know what I want 
And I say what I want 
And no one can take it away 
I know what I want 
And I say what I want 
And no one can take it away
