1. Dream Away

When I was young I used to dream away
I could sit all day long with nothing to say
In my dreams I would make it, break it
In the night I would be the ladies man
On the screen I would take Ďem, make Ďem
I really would make them dream away

I never cared for disco nights, Iíve always been the lonely one
When a girl passes by I nearly start to run
But in my dreams I would squeeze her, kiss her
In the night I would make her feel alright
She takes my hand and weíre moving, grooving
I would really make her dream away

Dream away Ė take me away from this place
Dream away Ė dreams making scars in my face

When I close my eyes I start to dream away
It all is a dream

Now my lifetimeís ending, my hairís turning grey
But that wonít stop my dreaming, thatíll be the day
In my dreams Iím the Black Knight, all might
Fit for fight for the poor and innocent
Warpigs fall for my swordblade, stormraid
No more wars, but itís just a dream

Dream away Ė take me away from this place
Dream away Ė itís making scars in my face
Dream away Ė take me away from this place
Dream away Ė dreams making scars in my face




2. Black Revenge

My bodyís burning, my heart is black with hate
My shield protects me and my sword rules your fate
You burned my castle and ravaged my land
I will recapture and I will demand black revenge

You raped my daughter and murdered my wife
Now Iím out for you, Iím the plague in your life
Thy name is hallowed but thy soul is cursed
Expect no mercy, out it will burst

Killing fire, in my heart
Burning desire for black revenge to start

My curse is black revenge and the victim is you
Donít you try to hide, thereís nothing you can do
You burned my castle and ravaged my land
I will recapture and I will demand black revenge

Killing fire, in my heart
Burning desire for black revenge to start




3. Fighting Man

Iím feeling cheated, Iím taken for a ride
I donít believe youíre on my side
You just try touse me, but Iím nobodyís fool
You just canít better me, I wonít play your rules
Now take it easy, I wonít give it up
It might take a lifetime, but I ainít gonna stop
I wonít stand beaten, not by your cheating

Iím a fighting man, I take what I can
Rock and rolling man, I doing the best that I can
Iím a fighting man, I take what I can
Rock and rolling man, I doing the best that I can

Ever since my childhood Iíve been pushed around
I mustíve been stupid, never to say a sound
I just walked away with a heart in despair
Now Iíve had enough, it was too much to bare
I wonít call it vengeance but my aim is true
Youíd better beware cos Iím aiming at you
I ainít beaten, so stop your cheating

Iím a fighting man, I take what I can
Rock and rolling man, I doing the best that I can
Iím a fighting man, I take what I can
Rock and rolling man, I doing the best that I can

An everlasting battle, a never ending fight
Iím waiting for the showdown, but thereís no end in sight
You know I gotta make it, make it to the top
And when I get there, I ainít gonna stop
I wonít take it easy, Iím gonna play it rough
You know Iíll make Ďem see that I know my stuff
I wonít be beaten, not by your cheating

Iím a fighting man, I take what I can
Rock and rolling man, I doing the best that I can
Iím a fighting man, I take what I can
Rock and rolling man, I doing the best that I can




4. Burn In Hell

In the middle of the night when the fullmoon rises he wakes up
Takes his black hat and coat and walks out through the door
He is sneaking, he is seeking, the avenger of death and pain
He is playing, heís obeying the master of the under worlds

Burn in hell Ė burn him to the last bone
Burn in hell Ė take him away
Burn in hell Ė take him to the firezone
Burn in hell Ė donít let him stay

Ironshadows are lowering over his eyes, he canít see
The devilís hand that is reaching to take him away
To the deathcell in his hot hell with burning bones of infidels
That have broken the holy token written with the devilís blood

Burn in hell Ė burn him to the last bone
Burn in hell Ė take him away
Burn in hell Ė take him to the firezone
Burn in hell Ė donít let him stay

He starts feeling sick by the warmth of the fires burning on
Heís starting to repent all th ethings that heís done
He feels guilty and so filthy, but the devilís got him in his spell
He feels cheated and defeated but thereís no way to get out alive

Burn in hell Ė burn him to the last bone
Burn in hell Ė take him away
Burn in hell Ė take him to the firezone
Burn in hell Ė donít let him stay




5. Swords And Axes

In the year of the final retribution the good will fight the evil
Now time hath come for vengeance for all the wickedness thy hath borne
Therefore I pray to you, every man and every boy, to rise your swords and exes
Stike down all Satanís servants and let them burn in the depths of Hell
The battlefiels of armageddon will face much death and pain
But will it not be worth the death and worth the pain
To feel the soft breeze of freedom gently surrounding your lightened soul...




6. Living In Sin

I was born on the bad side and I lived under the gun
My mother was a witch and my father was on the run
I never saw him, I didnít even care when they said heíd passed away
He was a felon but I was aware my mother loved him anyway

When I was almost five they told my mother; youíre gonna burn
My mother cried and begged for mercy, but they all turned
You gotta learn how to survive and live your life while you can
At the stake they burned her alive but I had to take it like a man

On the sun, living in sin, with nowhere to run
Under the gun, living in sin, all my ships are burned

Now Iím twentyfive and my life still hasnít changed
I think itís time for me to start to rearrange
My angerís faded, my hate is all gone, Iíve left it all behind the bend
Still, one thing will always remain, my life in sin will never end

On the sun, living in sin, with nowhere to run
Under the gun, living in sin, all my ships are burned




7. Mission Of Destruction

In the land of dreams joy was turned to sorrow
The children in the wombs wouldnít see tomorrow
The silvery death came through the sky
And those who died mustíve wondered why
At the place where the innocent wasnít worth a single cent

Now the bomb has fallen and the plane lifts higher
The innocent bystanders were burned by the fire
Their lifeless bodies were set ablaze
Extermination without a trace
The sole survivors they wondered why
They were the ones who didnít die

Mission of destruction Ė the world should feel the shame
Mission of destruction Ė weíre the ones to blame

Now the land of dreams again has been reborn
It has all been rebuilt, the things that were torn
But something that never healed was a feeling that had to yield
Atomic radiation fear destroyed their lives for many a year

Mission of destruction Ė the world should feel the shame
Mission of destruction Ė weíre the ones to blame




8. Ode To Juliet




9. Broken Hearted

You wanted to steal a heart from another
But you didnít try, and now itís too late
You said you wanted to be a lover
But that doesnít seem to be your untold fate

The wicked world that stands before you
Donít give you enough to keep you satisfied
Oh, how I wish that I could help you
To find the one to be by your side

Broken hearted lover, trying hard not to bother
Broken hearted lover, looking so har for another
Can you help me to guide my path away to the promised land
Fill my days with joy and love, wonít you take my hand

Youíll have to face the situation
You have to give a little of yourself
It wonít help with selfaccusation
That wonít get you away frmo the suicide shelf

I understand youíre outta hand
Under pressure so I guess youíre... alone

Broken hearted lover, trying hard not to bother
Broken hearted lover, looking so har for another
Can you help me to guide my path away to the promised land
Fill my days with joy and love, wonít you take my hand
