1.
KILL THE DRAGON (Solo : LL) I keep on marching through the mist that clouds my eyes Somehow I follow blindly whoever leads the way This can’t go on any longer I need to break these chains And the more that I resist The stronger I am tied Kill the dragon, fight for supremacy Kill the dragon, the war inside my head Between the superstition and all the evil lies A path of endless sorrow and a will to hold on Why am I so weak No one to rescue me I just can’t resist the urge The more it beckons me Kill the dragon, fight for supremacy Kill the dragon, the war inside my head Kill the dragon, fight to survive this war Kill the dragon, the battle rages on (Solo: BS/ LL) (repeat chorus) On and on and on
2.
STARING AT THE STARS There is nothing but the darkness That rests inside of my soul Have I reached the end of hope Has humanity lost its course How could I not believe the fact That we are not the crown of creation So, I seek help from afar To find, to find a solution I’m staring at the stars Can someone please take me away I’m staring at the stars I want to live for another day The pollution, the extinction Nature’s down and we’re all guilty While we’re watching the ice is melting But no one wants to leave their place, no It’s not our fault when they seek refuge We just profit from ammunition And our leaders just care about their ratings And campaign contributions (Solo: LL) (repeat chorus) Another day
3.
Queen Of Sin 04:10
QUEEN OF SIN Strange signs on the horizon Black Arrows pointing at your heart You see her standing there, enchanting you One Touch and you’re helpless Submissive and defenseless You’ll follow orders, uttered from her mouth Kneel for your pleasure Kneel before the mistress She’s got you under control She’s the queen, the queen of sin (repeat) When you feel her lips on yours Like a poison there is no cure for She made you her slave, eternally Doomed to follow her To be possessed by her Forever…under her spell She’s the queen, the queen of sin (repeat) Nothing could prevent you from getting pulled in Too late to escape, you’re under her skin Queen of sin She’s the queen, the queen of sin She’s your queen (Solo: LL) Kneel for her pleasure Kneel before your mistress You are under her control She’s the queen, the queen of sin (repeat) Queen of sin
4.
FALL FROM GLORY Through space and time, I moved freely past Centuries of blood flowing through my veins My eyes have seen stars being born I've watched the skies erupt with life I was there when man came forth I was there when his faith failed The morning sun brought rays of doubt When brother envy killed his own Empires were built and then they fell Ashes to dust and flesh from bone Greed and lust took over his power Man's future soon turned sour Fall from glory - my heart is boiling over with rage Fall from glory - hear the scream of my outrage I will protect the laws of old Living among this fallen race Destroying all that once was good Creating a most forsaken place This is not what I wished for For I am the watcher not the saviour Fall from glory - my heart is boiling over with rage Fall from glory - this is the anthem of the estranged Fall from glory - tragic death of a dream Fall from glory - hear the echoes of my scream (Solo: BS) There will be no more roads to follow Only grieving times of sorrow (repeat chorus)
5.
I Am Omega 04:08
I AM OMEGA I’m driving all day through this town Through abandoned cars and debris Looting for food and gas To bring back to my fortress How long can it go on like this Before I've got to move to survive At night I hide and stay The hunter becomes the prey I am Omega, my time is running out I’m the legend history has warned you about I’m the last man on earth I’m the only one left alive Maybe justice will be served When I kill these creatures absurd The bloodsucking freaks of the night I was the one who found the cure But there was no one left to save As day turns into night No more people to walk the light I can see the calendars hang Imagine phones are ringing But there is nobody there Just the ones who kill for fear I am Omega, the last one of my kind I’m the legend they were raised to be afraid of I’m the last man on earth I’m the only one left alive Maybe justice will be served When I kill these creatures absurd The bloodsucking freaks of the night (Solo: LL) I am Omega, my time is running out I’m the legend history has warned you about
6.
THE POWER OF EVIL The world is ruled by the devil and his peers This world belongs to the beastly companies So how can it be that you follow them blindly Everyone falling into their trap, so cluelessly And now temptation is closing in Your senses set to hunt and win Whatever obstacle is in your way Get it off your back to ensure pure gain Fight the power of evil - Fight within yourself Fight the power of evil - Society will steal your soul Fight the power of evil - Fight for everyone Fight the power of evil - Eliminate the evil on this earth The corporations need no air to breathe Tax you to hell, can your ends meet A grave error in your judgement When you made the deal and shook the hand You strive all day to regain your costs To pay it all back with your workforce The bureaucrats put you in chains Burn all the fuel until nothing remains Fight the power of evil - Fight within yourself Fight the power of evil - Society will steal your soul Fight the power of evil - Fight for everyone Fight the power of evil - Don’t you see the evil in this world (Solo: LL/BS/LL) Fight the power of evil - Fight within yourself Fight the power of evil - Society will steal your soul Fight the power of evil - Fight for everyone Fight the power of evil - Eliminate the evil on this earth Fight the power of evil - Fight within yourself Fight the power of evil - Society has run its course Fight the power of evil - Fight for everyone Fight the power of evil – Don’t you see the evil that men do

Dawn City 07:16
DAWN CITY A small world where people go to evolve Without being torn apart by their worldly needs They want to be free and turn towards the divine An aspiration to urge for something truer Auroville belongs to no one in particular A bridge between the worlds, the future and the past Unending education and constant progression The true embodiment of unity No money, no government - No laws, no religion This unique place where youth never ages The foundation of a life that never judges you Come and open your heart, body, and soul You’re living free in unconditional harmony Let go of all preconceptions And open up to a new society Your life will never be the same Ascending in the city of the dawn We belong to no nation, to no civilisation We obey to no master, to no social convention The divine we're searching with all our will and inner self It’s not sacrificing, if it's for eternal delight A self-selected exile, a professed utopia A new age metropolis, a stateless state, that's where you are It's a modification of terrestrial creation We're transforming into something non-conforming Expressions of all our consciousnesses Leads to the shore of our next species No fences surrounding us, no leaders suppressing us An alternative way of living to work out the power of the divine (Solo: LL) They all come to seek a cure The healed ones are leaving, the rest is still searching Can we be certain that they'll ever find Proclaimed consciousness beyond the mind (Solo: LL) Higher learning has to unfold And reveal what already has been in us Open yourself to joy and harmony Like a flower opens up to the sun above True self is the purest teacher To withhold one minds paradox Change perception and change reality Come and live with us in dawn city
9.
WORLD OF WIRES So many worlds within worlds, imitation of your soul A surrogate takes your place, you're no longer in control Dwell in a future that no one believed in Until we're in dependency In too deep in the crystallized age A virtual humanity Are we still men in caves, staring at our own reflection The principle of modern times, a constant connection Seduced by change that we all can believe in Eternal power supply Led astray by the unruly fact That on wires we rely Slaves to technology, chipped by society, big data's alive A billion entities, can't find reality, a simulation of life We're universal inserts, born into a world, in a world of wires (Solo: LL) Slaves to technology, chipped by society, big data's alive A billion entities, can't find reality, a simulation of life We're universal inserts, digital converts, completely absurd Born into a world, in a world of wires We're living in a world of wires (repeat) Now they run it wireless That doesn't mean that nothing's there, to fry your brain
10.
Path of Fate 04:30
PATH OF FATE I’m no victim of circumstance I shall not cry, nor mourn aloud This might be my only chance Battered and bruised, but still unbowed Into the darkness that covers me To play the game of seek and find I hope the ancients watch over me My soul is pure, unstained my mind Beyond the gates of a thousand suns The possibilities for the chosen one Free me now - From the strain To reach my goal – To be unchained To save myself – I open gates For those who dare Progress awaits On the path of fate (Solo: BS) The quest that is my lifetime To find and follow the little signs To endure all punishment On the path to enlightenment Beyond the lies of a coeval world Eternal truth remains unfurled Free me now - From the strain To reach my goal – To be unchained To save myself – I open gates For those who dare Progress awaits On the path of fate

about

with the addition of drummer Remo, Guitarists Ben & Lorenz, they made their own mark as a unit. And it shows: the songs are shorter, more accessible and sound like they are all forged from the same mould.
Their new Album is powerful and kind of sounds like the debut of a young, hungry band, because in a way they are. The band presents an incredibly catchy Heavy Metal Release, in the vein of Judas Priest and Iron Maiden.
