Submitted by level Eagles
1. Calling the Knights (1:37)
Instrumental
2. Emerald Knights (6:33)
Now our time has come to pay
The eagle will lead our way
Let the crusade for metal begin
With "The Emerald" as our sign we'll win
We're brothers bound by our desire
Our swords are made out of fire
A metalfire we will ignite
To bring glory to metal we fight

Hail
to the metalgods
Hail
to all metalmaniacs
Raise
your metalfists
Bang
your metalheads

We are the Emerald Knights
The defenders of metal and steel
We are the Emerald Knights
In front of the metal gods we kneel
We are the Emerald Knights
Warriors from the start
We are the Emerald Knights
United forever by heart

Our fight is for honour and pride
With thunder and lightning we ride
Like lions we are the defenders
Never will we surrender

With witches and wizards on our side
The beast is rising tonight
Into the metalfire we fly
And metal will never die

Hail
to the metalgods
Hail
to all metalmaniacs
Raise
your metalfists
Bang
your metalheads

We are the Emerald Knights
The defenders of metal and steel
We are the Emerald Knights
In front of the metal gods we kneel
We are the Emerald Knights
Warriors from the start
We are the Emerald Knights
United forever by heart
3. Unreasonable Violence (4:43)
Who gives you the right to decide upon life and death
Some government put you in charge, civilians now you can spare
For our country, forcing others to do the dirty work
Megalomaniac greed from your so called leaders
Sitting on your seat commanding, blinding, sewing hate
Innocent minds, believe, risk their lifes or just die
Watching all the injustice that has been done by now
Why is war not so long past, ancient stupidity

Would you kill for glory
Would you close your eyes
All this unreasonable violence
The wrong ones pay the price

Would you kill for glory
Would you close your eyes
All this unreasonable violence
The wrong ones pay the price

I still believe that freedom can be
I still believe in peace
I just can't change the world on my own

Can it be that nothing is learned
Can't you hear my call
And tomorrow, the fighting, it will go on and on and on...

Would you kill for glory
Would you close your eyes
All this unreasonable violence
The wrong ones pay the price
4. Hard to Be True (3:30)
Memory
Melodies
Silent cries
Shame on the world
Your made me grow up in all that you give
Now, I can't erase my mind
A sign of the stars, point me
to what there is to live for

Can't stare into the moving circles
Making me forget, what I can't stop thinking about
How can it be, through this scattered view
So hard to be true

Dreams
Conceptions
Captured in
And time slowly fades

Still giving me all for nothing at all
Ignorance can't be the key
Twisted truth, cloning reality
Decline and fall

Can't stare into the moving circles
Making me forget, what I can't stop thinking about
How can it be, through this scattered view
So hard to be true

So hard, so hard, so goddamn hard
So hard to be true
5. Across the Sea (8:29)
The wind was blowing
The crew prepared for a new adventure
The "Crusader" a royal frigate
Was ready to leave the port
So they sailed away
With hope and pride
In the front the sunrise
And in the back the wind

Across the sea
There are forces we'll never know
When stormes are rising
The sea opens the gate to hell

Then across the sea
There is another world
Across the sea
We're just figures
In an old and mystic game
Played by the ancient gods

With clouds on the horizon
The darkness arrived
Roaring thunder louder than hell
Lightnings like fire in the sky

Water water wherever they look
Screams fade away in the night
Winds of death are blowing over the ship
No one has a chance to survive

Across the sea
There are forces we'll never know
When stormes are rising
The sea opens the gate to hell

Then across the sea
There is another world
Across the sea
We're just figures
In an old and mystic game
Played by the ancient gods

Then across the sea
There is another world
Across the sea
We're just figures
In an old and mystic game
Played by the ancient gods

Sometimes
When a thick fog is hanging over the water-surface
Only the ripple of water is in the air
Old wood es creaking
Then the "Crusader" is returning from the depths of sea into the pitch-black night...
6. Victims of Society (4:23)
Since your birth
everybody wants to control your life
You have to do this and you don't have to do this
Everybody has expections for your future
but no one knows your own desires
Your parents want only the best for you
they make plans for your whole life
and so you squander your life in stupid
schools where you learn so many things
you'll never need again

You have to interrupt this circle
before it is too late
and you're a victim of society
No more standards-Break the rules !

Everyday you are unhappy with your life
and you waste your time with sorrow and sadness
Problems are getting bigger and bigger
And so you forget
to see the wonderful things in life

You have to interrupt this circle
before it is too late
and you're a victim of society
No more standards-Break the rules !
7. You Belong to Me (6:37)
How can I stop that burning fire deep inside
I can feel that it's searching it's way out
How shall I show you my feelings I use to hide
They won't turn out - alone
I have to find a way to confess my love to you
I think I cannot stand it any longer
Must overcome my fear
When you're standing next to me
I won't be no fool anymore

I don't wanna walk away
with a broken heart
Come on girl make up your mind

When you hold me tight
In your arms tonight
I'll never let you go
When I'm feeling your heart's beating next to mine
Then I close my eyes and I realize
That you were made for me
Together we will spend our lifes you will see
You belong to me

I must overcome all of my doubts
I need more self-confidence
And that's what it's all about
It's all about me and you
Me and you

Please don't let me all alone
See the tears in my eyes
Girl you know it hurts so strong
Don't you realize

When you hold me tight
In your arms tonight
I'll never let you go
When I'm feeling your heart's beating next to mine
Then I close my eyes and I realize
That you were made for me
Together we will spend our lifes you will see
You belong to me
8. Shadowknight (4:26)
Evil forces have bounded together
Soldiers of the rainbow fight forever
Armies of skeletons, armed and poisonous
Demons and sorcerers are against us
Our stone towers crumbled and fell
Warriors died, on earth there is hell
Shadows appear, where's the helping hand
Shadowknight comes, to save our land

Shadowknight
Fight the dragon with eyes so bright
Shadowknight
Win the war or day turns into night

A sword of steel breaking the bones
Heads being smashed on filthy stones
The land of our king, he's fighting for
Destroy the evil dead, to win this war

Slashing off the head of a demon
Shadowknight appears to be screaming
The last one of the legion is here
The devil's dragon spreading fear

The dragon is dead, killed by him
The evil light disappearing so dim
Look upon the shadowed skies
Our savior, the knight who never dies

Shadowknight
Fight the dragon with eyes so bright
Shadowknight
Win the war or day turns into night
9. Medieval Steel (Medieval Steel cover) (4:54)
Intro:
Beyond the sands of time
Within the realm of the mind
There is a land where life and death
Are ruled by steel
Out of this land five conquering heroes
Arose to make their stand
Throughout their journey
They stake their claim
That they are the warlords
By the name Medieval Steel

There was a time long ago
When men fought for steel
The sword was worth more than gold
And easy to make the kill
Twenty years in the gallows
One slave began to rise
He fights a thousand battles
With hatred in his eyes

Chorus:
Medieval steel cuts you like a knife
Warriors on the battlefield
Laying down their life for steel

Then came the day he was set free
Free to roam this land
Iron will in his heart
And his sword in his hand
He began to take command
Over the mountains, through the glen
Came the king and his marching men
To fight the fight and to kill the slave
When the fight was over he was saved

Chorus
10. Battlefield (5:31)
I watch the lines of our enemies
Bathed in cold sweat I am
So afraid to meet the kiss of steel
I don't want to die, I don't want to die
The first crash is made
By the power of hate
Many men are dead
The ground is gleaming red

We stand as one
And as one we will fall

The nobles sent us all
Into war where innocents fall
But still we stand and fight
For our land and for our rights

Defending our lives with mortal fear
We're standing side by side
Many friends are dying a cruel death
Heroes are falling into the dust

Thus ends the battle
Dead bodies everywhere
Vultures with their dreadful meal
The reaper is laughing still

We stand as one
And as one we will fall

The nobles sent us all
Into war where innocents fall
But still we stand and fight
For our land and for our rights
