1. Intro




2. Crucified

Look in my eyes
What do you see lurking inside
No way to disguise
Your fear of me
My hunger for pain satisfied

The torment, it eats you alive
Thereís no hope in Hell - crucified

Pretending to feel
Whatís in my heart isnít for real
I see no other way
Believe me
Iíve no mercy and you are my prey

The torment, it eats you alive
Thereís no hope in Hell - crucified

The torment, it eats you alive
Thereís no hope in Hell - crucified
The torment, it eats you alive
Thereís no hope in Hell - crucified




3. Burnin' Up

Oh, itís burniní inside me
This feeling starting to grow
Well, it seems like forever
Embers of love, they still glow

One by one, it falls into place
Reaching for the dreams that we chase

Burn, burn, burn
Feeling like thereís no escape for me
Waiting for the page to turn
Living by the powers to be

As I look in the mirror
A stranger stares back at me
No rhyme and no reason
I canít believe what I see

One by one, it falls into place
Reaching for the love we embrace

Burn, burn, burn
Feeling like thereís no escape for me
Waiting for the page to turn
Living by the powers to be

Iím gonna burn, burn, burn
Iím gonna get it out some way
Waiting for the page to turn
Iím gonna get it right someday

Burn, burn, burn
Feeling like thereís no escape for me
Waiting for the page to turn
Living by the powers to be

Iím gonna burn, burn, burn
Iím gonna get it out some way
Waiting for the page to turn
Iím gonna get it right someday

Burn, burn, burn
Feeling like thereís no escape for me
Waiting for the page to turn
Living by the powers to be

Burn, burn, burn
Iím gonna get it out some way
Waiting for the page to turn
Iím gonna get it right someday




4. Layin' Down The Law

Iíve waited for so many years
Thereís nothing left except a tear
In silence Iíve bided, my time will come
As the hammer is falling it blackens the sun

Waging a war on humanity
As I look to the wind, counting the sins in spite of me

Laying down the law
No hope for tomorrow
Donít you see Iím laying down the law
Thereís no other way

Iíve tried to hide my face of shame
From out of the darkness, itís started
I must reclaim my will
The voices are calling, theyíre screaming my name
Put an end to this madness, erasing the pain

Waging a war on humanity
As I look to the wind, the ending begins, begins with me

Laying down the law
No hope for tomorrow
Donít you see Iím laying down the law
Thereís no other way

Laying down the law
Youíve ignored all the warnings
Donít you see Iím laying down the law
It must be this way

Laying down the law
No hope for tomorrow
Donít you see Iím laying down the law
Thereís no other way

Laying down the law
Youíve ignored all the warnings
Donít you see Iím laying down the law
It must be this way

Laying down the law
No hope for tomorrow
Donít you see Iím laying down the law
Thereís no other way

Laying down the law
Youíve ignored all the warnings
Donít you see Iím laying down the law
It must be this way




5. Awakening

Give me a sign, what weíre about to undertake
Defending all beliefs
Crossing the line, every limit that we break
The vengeance is released

Moving in, now we move in for the kill
No mercy in our hearts
Ready and counting
The tension mounting in me

Awakening the beast
That lives inside of me
Awakening the beast
Nothing but evil in me

Craving the fear, feel the danger everywhere
Emotion fades away

Sadistic thoughts, devouring minds
Compassion left behind
Ready and counting
The tension mounting in me

Awakening the beast
That lives inside of me
Awakening the beast
Nothing but evil

Awakening the beast
That lives inside of me
Awakening the beast
Nothing but evil in me
Awakening the beast
That lives inside of me
Awakening the beast
And thereís nothing but evil, nothing but evil in me




6. The Altar

Opening the doorway of affliction
Opening the gates of Hell
Here I stand, the evil addiction
No return, no parallel

This energy, itís pulling me
Into the dark, over and over again

Proceed, on our way
The possession has started
The altar of evil, it lives
Believe and obey
The altar of evil
Condemning and never forgives

Summoning, disciples of deception
Carry out the one command
Conjuring, the deadliest devotion
We are one, come take my hand

This energy, itís pulling me
Into the dark, over and over again

Proceed, on our way
The possession has started
The altar of evil, it lives
Believe and obey
The altar of evil
Condemning and never forgives

This energy, itís pulling me
Into the dark, over and over again

Proceed, on our way
The possession has started
The altar of evil, it lives
Believe and obey
The altar of evil
Condemning and never forgives
Proceed, on our way
The possession has started
The altar of evil, it lives
Believe and obey
The altar of evil
Condemning and never forgives




7. On Our Way (To Hell)

Playing with the devil, itís just another day
Living for some trouble, thatís my way
Iím afraid of nothing, oh Iím living free
Cheap little thrills, itís the one thing that I need

Iím only feeding on your needs, eat you alive
Inside youíre twisted just like me

Dirty double dealings, a nightmare come alive
Iím the poison running through your veins
Look at your reflections, am I your evil twin
Breaking all the rules, now let the games begin

Iím only feeding on your needs, eat you alive
Inside youíre twisted just like me

Fuelling your desire, Iím your darkest fear
On our way to Hell
Survival of the fittest, all penalties severe
On our way to Hell

Craving what Iím giving, all the sins weíre living
Am I truly evil, take my hand, one day youíll find the way

Fuelling your desire, Iím your darkest fear
On our way to Hell
Survival of the fittest, all penalties severe
On our way to Hell
Fuelling your desire, Iím your darkest fear
On our way to Hell
Survival of the fittest, all penalties severe
On our way to Hell




8. Unlock (The Mystery)

In the darkest nights
I can hear the voices warning me
Fire through the skies
Ignite the flames of Hell, our destiny

Fighting this endless war
Searching to find the door to free our souls
Giving us back all the hope we once held

Forgiving no oneís sins
Cries from Hell, in terror, calling me
Lurking in the wind
Shadows of our deadliest enemy

Fighting to end this war
Praying to find one door to free our souls
Giving us all back the hope we once held

Unlock the mystery
Again the night is haunting me
Whatís left to believe in
One hope is all thatís driving me on
Leading me on ,it shows me the way
To not be afraid anymore

Fighting to end this war
Praying to find one door to free our souls
Giving us all back the hope we once held

Unlock the mystery
Again the night is haunting me
Whatís left to believe in
One hope is all thatís driving me on
Leading me on ,it shows me the way
To not be afraid anymore




9. Peace Of Mind

Well, Iím running from the law, but I got no place to go
It always seems to be that way for me
Iíve been dealt a dirty hand, no Iíll never understand
I just roll the dice and watch in disbelief

I donít know if Iíll ever learn
Only trouble in my way
Danger lurking around every turn
And itís growing every day

I canít say what it is that Iíve been looking for
Maybe just a little peace of mind
As I fade away from the life thatís been enslaving me
Give me just a little peace of mind

Now thereís nothing I wonít do
Take my word, Iíll follow through
Of every little detail Iím aware
Eat Ďem up and spit Ďem out, to no one I am devout
Good or bad, I donít really care

I donít think that Iíll ever learn
Only trouble in my way
Danger lurking around every turn
And itís growing every day

I canít say what it is that Iíve been looking for
Maybe just a little peace of mind
As I fade away from the life thatís been enslaving me
Give me just a little peace of mind

I donít know if Iíll ever learn
Only trouble in my way
Danger lurking around every turn
And itís growing every day

I canít say what it is that Iíve been looking for
Maybe just a little peace of mind
As I fade away from the life thatís been enslaving me
Give me just a little peace of mind
I canít say what it is that Iíve been looking for
Maybe just a little peace of mind
As I fade away from the life thatís been enslaving me
Give me just a little peace of min




10. Time After Time

Little child, youíre all alone
With no one to hold
All the hope youíve held deep inside
Has left you out on the cold

Iíll take your tears
And Iíll wash all your fears away
I see the light shining down
As the fear and the pain fade away

Time after time after time

Little child, thereís nowhere to turn
Is there somewhere to hide
Close your eyes and try to forget
The world has pushed you aside

Iíll take your tears
And Iíll wash all your fears away
I see the light shining down
As the fear and the pain fade away

Time after time after time
Time after time after time

Time after time after time after time after time after time after time
Time after time after time after time after time after time after time
Time after time after time after time after time after time after time
Time after time after time after time after time after time after tim




11. Losing Sight

Another day has come and gone
Nothing is the same
Every night a turning of the page

Watching as the sky rolls by into a new demise
Whatís going on, itís tearing up our lives

I canít go on thinking everything is alright
If we give in to fear, weíre losing sight
Stand up and fight

Waiting for the sun to rise into a new tomorrow
The hope of something better on the way

Haunting memories on my mind
Iím never giving in
Every page thatís turned
Are lessons that weíve learned

I canít go on thinking everything will be alright
If we give in to fear, weíre losing sight
Stand up and fight

I canít go on thinking everything will be alright
If we give in to fear, weíre losing sight
I canít go on thinking everything will be alright
If we give in to fear, weíre losing sight
Stand up and fight




12. Betrayed

Left here for dead, hanging on by a thread
No looking back anymore
Out of my mind, didnít know what Iíd find
All the signs that I tried to ignore

Betrayed, turned I was stabbed in the back
Betrayed, without warning they sprung and attacked
Repay, Iím not letting anything slide
I wonít be a fool anymore

Back in the game, nothingís ever the same
Lessons were learned one more time
No more letting me down, Iíve been two times around
Opened my eyes to remind me

Betrayed, turned I was stabbed in the back
Betrayed, without warning they sprung and attacked
Repay, Iím not letting anything slide
I wonít be a fool anymore
Fool anymore

Left here for dead, hanging on by a thread
No looking back anymore
Out of my mind, didnít know what Iíd find
All of the signs that I tried to ignore

Betrayed, turned I was stabbed in the back
Betrayed, without warning they sprung and attacked
Repay, Iím not letting anything slide
I wonít be a fool anymore
Betrayed, turned I was stabbed in the back
Betrayed, without warning they sprung and attacked
Repay, Iím not letting anything slide
I wonít be a fool anymore
No playing the fool anymore
