The Dark Tower of the Sorcerer

The silence is hurtful
A village in fear
When darkness devour all the light, tonight

In every heart, in every soul
Resides a spark of life
But there is no tomorrow, no hope in sight

Evil eyes in disguise
Building hell machinery
Devil moon, life of doom
Drowning in insanity

The people obey and fear the dark power of the sorcerer
There is no more hiding from the dark tower of the sorcerer

He's raising an army
To conquer it all
He's using his powers from within, to win

And when he's done, the time will come
And thousands ride the night
A storm of death will sweep across the land

Evil eyes in disguise
Building hell machinery
Devil moon, life of doom
Drowning in insanity

The people obey and fear the dark power of the sorcerer
There is no more hiding from the dark tower of the sorcerer

Swallow your fears
The day will come
We will rise to paradise
Hear the trumpets calling
That day will come




Sumerian Script

5000 years ago in the beginning
In the cradle of the world
Symbols carved in clay, a holy token
Hidden in a secret cave

What have we done, evil is rising
And now we're on the path of doom
Disturbing the power balance,
interpreting the signs

They are written in Sumerian script

We see the world collapse, chaos and panic
The fear is mirrored in our eyes
We've opened up a crack to a dark dimension
Mankind will fall down on its knees

What have we done, evil is rising
And now we're on the path of doom
Disturbing the power balance
Interpreting the signs
They were written in Sumerian script




Lake of the Lost Souls

Out of the mist
A procession emerge
A slow but determent walk
To enforce the law

Tied
They've cut out his tongue
A heretic spreading his sinister
Lies for far too long

When the first sunrays appear
They leave the misty shore
The speechless man in tears
He won't see the sun anymore

The sound of the waves
Beating on the hull
The elders are saying their prayers
This is the end

Lies
He's done nothing but wrong
A heretic spreading his satanic words
For far too long
When the first sunrays appeared
They left the misty shore
A speechless man in tears

He won't see the sun anymore
When the first sunrays appeared
They left the misty shore
A speechless man in tears
Crying

He tread the path of a sinner
And now he has payed the prize
Like a stone, tumbling down, he is sinking
His soul never to rise again




Excorcise the Demon

Empowered by the Lord we demand you to leave
I spit on your cross, your naive words means nothing to me
We cast you out you demon beast of the dark
I laugh in your face and smother your dying spark

Our belief and faith will send you back to hell
In robes and cloth we've come to serve the Holy Script
Hear thy holy word, in fire you shall dwell
So begone, crawl back into the ancient crypt

We will exorcise the demon
We will purify her soul

Yield to our prayers and leave her alone
I will inflict her pain and eat the flesh from her bones
We form a sacred circle of trust
But it won't save her from the blood that I lust

Our belief and faith will send you back to hell
In robes and cloth we've come to serve the Holy Script
Hear thy holy word, in fire you shall dwell
So begone, crawl back into the ancient crypt

We will exorcise the demon
We will purify her soul

God will prevail, we shall win this strife
Eternal darkness will engulf her pitiful life
In God's name we'll save her from torment and pain
All of your foolish efforts are hopelessly in vain

Our belief and faith will send you back to hell
In robes and cloth we've come to serve the Holy Script
Hear thy holy word, in fire you shall dwell
So begone, crawl back into the ancient crypt

We will exorcise the demon
We will purify her soul




In the Shadow of the Inverted Cross

We turned our face from God and never spoke his name
The holy script became a book of lies
We buried our faith to live our life in shame
Now the time has come to pay the price

A vicious darkness closes in
And evil arises
They will atone our mortal sins
We all shall die

Angels are burning
Falling like leafs to the ground
Twisting and turning
In the shadow of the inverted cross

Eternal is the night and evil has prevailed
We all have past the point of no return
Agony and pain, our souls have been enslaved
Forever and ever we shall burn

A vicious darkness closes in
And evil arises
They will atone our mortal sins
We all shall die

Angels are burning
Falling like leafs to the ground
Twisting and turning
In the shadow of the inverted cross




Prayers for a King

We turned our face from God and never spoke his name
The holy script became a book of lies
We buried our faith to live our life in shame
Now the time has come to pay the price

A vicious darkness closes in
And evil arises
They will atone our mortal sins
We all shall die

Angels are burning
Falling like leafs to the ground
Twisting and turning
In the shadow of the inverted cross

Eternal is the night and evil has prevailed
We all have past the point of no return
Agony and pain, our souls have been enslaved
Forever and ever we shall burn

A vicious darkness closes in
And evil arises
They will atone our mortal sins
We all shall die

Angels are burning
Falling like leafs to the ground
Twisting and turning
In the shadow of the inverted cross




The Gates of Hell

No fear of pain
My rage will be unchained
The hate is growing stronger

Revenge is sweet
They kneel before my feet
Mercy exist no longer

I won't repent no sins
Fire in my veins

My soul is damned
I follow my destiny
Walking to the tolling of the bell
Through the gates of hell

I know I'll burn
There will be no return
The flames are rising higher

You feel my breath
The messenger of death
You'll face my innermost desire

I won't repent no sins
Fire in my veins

My soul is damned
I follow my destiny
No one can ever break the spell
My heart is cold
I have no sympathy
Walking to the tolling of the bell
Through the gates of hell




Pagans Dance

Moonlight is guiding their way
Leading them on through the mist
In this haunted night feeble-minded obey
The wicked believers prevail

Can you break the sacred oath?
Can you heal their pain?
Can you wash away their sins?

Maiden in flowers and silk
Spread on the altar of death
To be sacrificed in the honor of Bal
Listen and bow when he call

Blind
Possessed by evil
When Satan whispers their names

Tonight the pagans dance
The fires are burning
Lightning up the darkened woods

They soon will fall into trance
Screaming and yearning
Surrounded by the faceless hoods

Behold a figure appears
The Dagger Of Fate in his hands
In a flash of light they see the hate in his eyes
As the rain starts to fall from the sky
