01. Lies

There's no truth in what you say,
The story, it constantly strays.
Oh yeah

Just falsehoods and alibis,
You can't even look in my eyes.
Oh no

Lies, tell me lies, always lies,
All I ever hear from you...
Lies, tell me lies, always lies
All I ever hear from you...
All I ever hear from you...

You want to keep control,
Tear me down, make me old.
Hold me still in your chains,
Cause me sorrow, cause me pain.

Learned all the tricks of the trade,
Always changing the rules of the game.
Oh no
A master of disguise,
The mask that you hide behind.
Oh no

Lies, tell me lies, always lies,
All I ever hear from you...
Lies, tell me lies, always lies
All I ever hear from you...
All I ever hear from you...

You want to keep control,
Tear me down, make me old.
Hold me still in your chains,
Cause me sorrow, cause me pain.

Tell me why you gotta treat me this way,
I'm the puppet and you're pulling the strings.
Keep me hidden like a jack-in-the-box,
Find a weakness and pick your spot.

You hold the key at it's starting to turn,
What a lesson I finally learned.
What your doing is no surprise,
I can see it in you eyes, yeah.

Why do you always keep me down,
Disrespect me and kicked me around.
When I die your gonna dance on my grave,
At least for now I'll be saved.

Safe from all you vicious lies,
Safe from false tears you've cry,
Safe from all the games you played,
Some things never change.


02. Death Rides A Black Horse

Stand tall, answer the call,
On your way to the Sun, oh...
Hold tight, your leaving tonight,
The journey to hell has just begun.

All dead, fields of red,
Your are the chosen one, oh.
It's clear, the end is near,
Better hold on to your gun.

He starts his ride...
Fires of hell,
Burn in his eyes.

Death rides a black horse,
Death rides a black horse.
Death rides a black horse,
Death rides a black horse, no...

No fear, the enemies near,
Show what you have been taught, yeah.
So clean, a killing machine,
Bet you never once had thought.

No way, it ends today,
To many lives have been bought, yeah.
Tell me what you see...

He starts his ride...
Fires of hell,
Burn in his eyes.

Death rides a black horse,
Death rides a black horse.
Death rides a black horse,
Death rides a black horse, no...

(Solo's)

He starts his ride...
Fires of hell,
Burn in his eyes.

Death rides a black horse,
Death rides a black horse.
Death rides a black horse,
Death rides a black horse, no...

Death rides a black horse
Death rides a black horse
Death rides a black horse
Death rides a black horse


03. Festival

Welcome to the festival,
Full of decadence and sins.
I tell you all, it's incredible,
You're all invited in...

We begin with this collection,
Just look at this display.
The lunatics, the sycophant's,
What a colorful parade.

Oh festival
Oh festival

There's many strange exhibits,
For all to hear and see.
Tortured souls, corrupted worlds,
A feast fit for a king.

Make you way around the grounds,
See all the twisted freaks.
A total rush of insanity,
Now rises to it's peak.

Oh festival
Oh festival

(Guitar solo)

The climax of the show you see,
Meant to cause you agony.
Confusion, disillusion... and despair.

Spirits flow, blood will spill,
The silence right before the kill.
All apart of this evil open-air.

Oh festival
Oh festival

Yeah festival
Yeah festival...


04. Afterglow

It's a cold hard pain, deep down inside,
Shared by the lonely, the evil, the holy.
It chooses no sides...
And it's hard... it's hard... hard...

In the dead of night, in the dark we know,
What we try to hide, seems to always show.
This eternal pain, that we keep inside,
It's the afterglow of the crucified.

In the darkness of night, there is no where to hide,
In the afterglow,
Let the torment begin, as you twist and you bend,
In the afterglow,
You run for your life, from the demons that hide,
In the afterglow,
Never heard, never seen as you cry and you scream,
In the afterglow.

I can't understand, what I'm feeling inside.
Desperate and lonely,
I feel like the only person alive,
And it's hard... it's hard... hard...

In the dead of night, in the dark we know,
What we try to hide, seems to always show.
This eternal pain, that we keep inside,
It's the afterglow of the crucified.

Oh you gotta believe me,
Oh listen to me.

Oh,
In the darkness of night, there is no where to hide,
In the afterglow,
Let the torment begin, as you twist and you bend,
In the afterglow,
You run for your life, from the demons that hide,
In the afterglow,
Never heard, never seen as you cry and you scream,
In the afterglow, yeah yeah.


05. Living On The Edge

Live you're life the only way you know,
About a thousand miles left to go.
Moving faster, towards disaster,
Oh the lines in the road got your eyes in a hold.

Still push onward,
The quicker the pace.
It's the trill that you chase,
Lost, you wonder.

You've been living to fast...
Since it all began,
Like you're nailed to the cross,
By your feet and hands.

Living on the edge of time...
You, living on the edge of time,
Living on the edge of time...
You, living on the edge of time.

Can't stop because it's to late now,
Hit the pedal, your throwing down.
Road starts winding, while lines blinding,
The road never ends.

It's just twist and it bends,
Nothing stops you.
The fog and the haze,
Has got your mind in a daze.

Try to break through...
You've been living to fast...
Since it all began,
Like you're nailed to the cross,
By your feet and hands.

Living on the edge of time...
You, living on the edge of time,
Living on the edge of time...
You, living on the edge of time.

You blink your eye.
There's a dead end sign,
Now you're at the end of the line.

Time to wake from this crazy dream,
Hit the breaks.
You start to scream,
Moving faster towards disaster...

Still push onward,
Lost, you wonder.
Nothing stops you.
Try to break through...


06. Looking For Nothing

Caught in the middle,
Looking for nothing.
Taking in what's around,
Time doesn't matter.
Life's gonna happen,
It keeps rolling on...

Like the wind through the tree's.
A cool misty breeze.
Against my face,
The warmth of the sun...
Got to learn to walk before you run,
Can't go through life always under the gun.


07. The Evil Within

Break the circle,
See the master.
Look into his eyes,
Animalistic anger.
Rage burning deep inside.
Never ending nightmares,
It's all you do to see.
As you crawl before him on your knees.

Your soul is cast away,
For all eternity.
It's the evil within,
You burning, twisting, turning.
It's the evil within,
You rising feels like dieing.

Look in the madness with the devil,
Let the dance begin.
His deceptions slowly start to pull you in,
Into the fire where there is never sympathy.
All that's left for you is beg and plead.

Your soul is cast away,
For all eternity,
It's the evil within...
You burning, twisting, turning,
It's the evil within.
You rising feels like dieing.

The controversial anti-Christ,
Laughing as you pay the price.
Gloating at your final breath,
Weaves his hand, the stage is set.

Death orchestra plays...
Demon's melody.
Devil's symphony...
From the grave.


08. Winter Haven

Beneath my feet a fresh fallen snow,
Miles and miles and miles to go.
A north wind blows cold today,
Makes it hard to find my way.
To the sanctuary I seek,
Lies beyond this mountain peak.
Winter's moon lights the snow.
Showing me the way to go.

I must move onward
I must move onward
I must move onward

And all around I hear the sounds,
Voices calling to me.
They lead the way to the place,
I so desperately seek.
I wearing down, the cold surrounds
It's weakening me
It's weakening me

Then I see past frozen trees,
Distant light glowing hopelessly.
Has my journey reached it end,
I'm so tired, cold and spent.
I'm in need of rest and peace,
A winter haven tranquility.
A place to lay my head,
Eternity, enough's been said.

I must move onward
I must move onward
I must move onward

And all around I hear the sounds,
Voices calling to me.
They lead the way to the place,
I so desperately seek.
I wearing down, the cold surrounds
It's weakening me
It's weakening me

The light that I put before you, was an illusion,
I cast the flame away.
I am here to destroy you,
I'm your master, you are my slave.
Christ can't save you now,
Under my power.
I squeeze the life out of your precious soul,
Now it's mine, for all of time, it's this world I control.
Now that you're mine for all the time,
The blood leaks from your eyes.
I'll squeeze you till your dry.

Should not have entered the circle,
Should not have followed the visions displayed.
The way I played you was perfect, it lead you to me,
I cast your soul away.

Christ can't save you now,
Under my power.
I squeeze the life out of your precious soul,
Now it's mine, for all of time, it's this world I control.
Now that you're mine for all the time,
The blood leaks from your eyes.
I'll squeeze you till your dry...

I must move onward
I must move onward...


09. I Fear You

I, I do surrender,
A waiting payment for my sins.
I, I can't remember...
Where the story ends or where it begins.

I've been living a lie,
Life on the line.
Now I realize...
Deep inside, I fear you, I fear you.

I can't hide...
All the souls I've taken for a ride,
Signs I cast aside...
Should have read the words between the lines.

I've been living a lie,
Life on the line.
Now I realize...
Deep inside, I fear you, I fear you!

Now I stand here facing you,
Blood on my hands what can I do.
Drop down to my knee's and pray,
I will see another day.

I've been living a lie,
Life on the line.
Now I realize...
Deep inside, I fear you, I fear you, I fear you, I fear you!


10. Now

Late at night just thinking of you,
Wishing you were here to talk to, now, oh no.
At times I feel so all alone,
Travelling down this long and winding road.

I know that you'll be waiting for me,
I wish that I was with you,
Now, now.

I can't wait to see your face again,
But I'm so far away.
With every city I count the days...
Oh, the days.

Another lonely hotel room,
I know that I'll be with you soon,
I know, I know
Another show, another place.
Caught inside this same old race.

I know
I know that you'll be waiting for me,
I wish that I was with you,
Now, now.

I can't wait to see your face again,
But I'm so far away.
With every city I count the days...
Oh, the days.
