Hymns to Steel Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Preparing for Battle (1:51)
Instrumental
2. Hymn to Steel (6:04)
Turn up the volume to ten
A guitar starts to scream
Pounding drums, pumping bass
And a scream in the night

Hot girls in leather, ready for action
Banging metal maniacs raising their fists
Chains and leather, skulls and beasts
This is what heavy metal needs

So metatheads unite
And sing with us this ode to steel

This is our Hymn to Steel
Hail!
The spirit of metal will never die
This is our Hymn to Steel
Hail!
United we'll keep the flame burning

It is our life and it's in our blood
We don't give a fuck about today's trends
We don't want to be like the others
Poor normal creatures and their boring life

So metalheads unite
And sing with us this ode to steel

This is our Hymn to Steel
Hail!
The spirit of metal will never die
This is our Hymn to Steel
Hail!
United we'll keep the flame burning

Metal - Brings glory to us all
Metal - We dedicate our life to steel
Metal - If you're not born as a metalhead
you will never understand!!

So metalheads unite
And sing with us this ode to steel

This is our Hymn to Steel
Hail!
The spirit of metal will never die
This is our Hymn to Steel
Hail!
United we’ll keep the flame burning
3. Revenge (4:57)
Brothers, we were, blood that bounds
Until the death of our father
The king is dead, long live the king
But which one is stronger

Twins are evil, not divine
Locked me into the dungeon
So many years I stopped counting
But I won't wait, no longer
No longer

Because I, I swear Revenge
Someday I'll overthrow your reign
And be my own king
And I, I swear Revenge
In the castle of tyranny
Taste sweet Revenge

The seconds pass faster than light
Escaping the prison, running for my life
Inside my mind, it hurts so deep
But I will return

Because I, I swear Revenge
Someday I’ll overthrow your reign
And be my own king
And I, I swear Revenge
In the castle of tyranny
Taste sweet Revenge
4. Empire of Lies (5:44)
Take a look around and breathe deep the dark
Stop for an instant, observe your busy life
Something is wrong on this planet
But for millions life just goes on

Time is running, faster and faster
Efficient production, only importance
Best benefit, all that counts
Were daywalkers, the matrix works

War - A TV sensation for masses
War - A human tradition since thousands of years
War - Their way to decimate us
War - Their billion dollar business

The new order is near
The agenda can't be stopped

Manipulated masses
We're living in a...
Empire of Lies
Shut up and go back to work!
We're living in a...
Empire of Lies

Blinded by luxury
And stupid TV shows
Our spoiled consumer society
Forgot what life was all about

Politicians and presidents
Are just puppets on a string
For money and fame they sold their soul
Never know who laughs behind the mask

War - The new TV sensation for masses
War - A human tradition since thousands of years
War - Their way to grow stronger
War – Their billion dollar business

The new order is here
An unstoppable force in control

Manipulated masses
We're living in a...
Empire of Lies
Shut up and go back to work!
We're living in a...
Empire of Lies
5. My Way (5:03)
You
You look at me
I don't look like you
And I don’t act like you

My hair is long
Blood and monsters on my shirt
And the war I talk
makes you feel like something better

But you must know
But you must know that I...

I don't wanna be like you
I don't wanna live like you
I don't care about your rules
I'm going my way…my way!!

You
You think that you represent
The standard for us all
That we should accommodate to you

But I don't give a fuck
About your expectations
My will is stronger than steel
You will never break me

And you must know
And you must know that I…

I don't wanna be like you
I don't wanna live like you
I don't care about your rules I'm going my way... my way!!
6. Blind Mass (5:41)
Reincarnated souls without memory
Running around in search for sense
Everything has been prepared for you
Just listen and follow the blind

They teach, they preach and you’re just nodding
They cloak our history and cipher the truth
Bread and circuses to distract your attention
Religions to slave our mind, to reign mankind

You're a victim of your past
You're a victim of your blind mind
You're a victim of the illusion
You're a victim of the...
Manipulation!

Science is caught in dogmas
Media is filtered through political might
The truth sold for money, the spirit killed
No one to ask questions anymore

You're a victim of your past
You’re a victim of your blind mind
You're a victim of the illusion
You're a victim of the...
Manipulation!

So open your eyes
Open your heart
Can't you see what's going on around you
Don't be a part of the Blind mass!

Do you believe?
Do you believe the lies?
Do you believe?
Believe the lies?
Do you still believe?
Believe the lies?
Do you believe? The lies!

So open your eyes
Open your heart
Can't you see what's going on around you
Don't be a part of the Blind mass!
7. Will You Ever Return (5:03)
The day when we met
I'll never forget
Silent snow was falling
My broken heart was calling

You were the colour in my life
You gave me warmth, love and hope
Now that you're gone
My life turned back to black

Will you ever return again?
From these wars, battles and pain
Watching you riding away
Waiting for messages day by day
Tears falling down, seasons change
Still I've heard nothing to calm down my fears

The war has come so quick
Marching orders had arrived
Soon you were gone
Leaving us behind

I look into our children's faces
To see you live in them
To look upon a living picture
Of my love again

Will you ever return again?
From these wars, battles and pain
Watching you riding away
Waiting for messages day by day
Tears falling down, seasons change
Still I've heard nothing to calm down my fears

Will you ever return again?
From these wars, battles and pain
Watching you riding away
Waiting for messages day by day
Tears falling down, seasons change
Still I've heard nothing to calm down my fears

Will our children see you again?
'Till then nothing will cease down my pain
Hearing your staggered goodbye
Praying that you won’t die
Tears falling down, seasons change
Still I’ve heard nothing to calm down my fears
8. Bastardo (4:28)
He thinks he's sweet and kind
He's in everybody's mind
Spends all his money
for drugs, it ain't funny
He thinks he's the king
of the world

He tries to influence little children
He makes them gifts
They’re happy with
Yeah, they think
That he is their hero
But they are wrong

He treats others like slaves
And let them do his work
He tyrannizes everyone
Who doesn’t listen to what he says

So Lord if you want me to pray
Then listen what I've got to tell
Show no mercy and
Send this Bastard to hell

Everyday when the school's out
He's waiting behind the wall, oh yeah
He catches the first guy
And tells him to try

He treats others like slaves
And let them do his work
He tyrannizes everyone
Who doesn’t listen to what he says

So Lord if you want me to pray
Then listen what I've got to tell
Show no mercy and
Send this Bastard to hell
9. We Shall Rise (5:25)
We shall rise... to the heavens, in the epoch of steel
Hide... from the evil, tempting with might
Fight… against the forces, holding us back
Feel… the powers awakened in us

We shall rise… by the strength within our own
Command... the forms of inner control
Rule... with mercy for all the believers
Consent of Conflict... laid on our souls

It's the end of a century
The new era has begun
It’s too late if you haven not seen by now
We ride into the setting sun

We shall rise… among the warlords, devoted to battle
Defend… our legacy, the right to be free
March on… until no one left to pretend
In glory… to light, we shall transcend

We shall rise… unbroken, victorious at last
Burning... the bridges, behold our past
Ignoring... the pain and all of the tosses
Final Solutions... have always been fatal

It's the end of a century
The new era has begun
It's too late if you have not seen by now
We ride into the setting sun

Oh, great one, hear our call
We've come from distance, we come from afar
The message was always here in our hearts
Protect our soul and spirit
As we fulfil the prophecy
The message was always here in our hearts
Burning desires to reach to the stars

We shall
We shall
We shall… rise!
10. Azrael (5:36)
Never been in the hell before
Now I'm falling, falling
Heaven's behind the door
And they're calling me again
Hidden beyond the light
And the darkness finds me
Help me escape tonight
Oh, I must find Azrael...

I am the darkness
Hiding within your mind
Walking beside you

I lock the gates to hell
I toll the final bell
I am forever

I am the blinding light
Probing the endless night
There's no escaping me

Wake in your darkest dreams
Go ahead and try to scream
No one can hear you now

Stare in the raven's eye
Your time has come to die
Welcome to my world

Stand at the end of space
Reach out to touch my face
I am omega

Azrael

I hold the lion's mane
I come in crimson rain
Purging the dark sky

I am the master
Guide to your chosen fate
I am Valhalla

Azrael, angel of mercy
Azrael, angel of mercy
Yeah

Beware my eyes'll find you
And see into your heart
And if you hold the evil
I'll rip you all apart
I'll cast your soul to Satan
Die by holy fire
Rise and stand before me
Burning on the pyre. Burn.

Fly on the wings of glory
Burn in the depths of hell
Your life creates the doorway
Death holds the key

Azrael, angel of mercy
Azrael, angel of mercy
Azrael, angel of mercy
Azrael, angel of mercy
Yeah
11. Bard of the King (5:47)
Once upon a time
When heroes walked the earth
Bards were singing aloud
Of deeds so proud and fine

A young singer rose
To the bard that the king chose
Engaged for telling lies
The sinister he denies

Bard of the king
He's cursed to sing
Lies about tales
'cause the king never fails
No freedom, no choice
About his own voice

The king as dragonstayer
With force, a demonkiller
A saviour of maidens
Invented deeds to deceive history

He let his soldiers fight
For himself and his right
The bard was singing loud
Of the king as warrior proud

Bard of the king
He's cursed to sing
Lies about tales
'cause the king never fails
No freedom, no choice
About his own voice

No freedom to win
As bard of the king
He quit his cursed job
To sing now for the mob

Soon he was found dead
A bloody mess in his bed
No one betrays the king
No freedom to win

Bard of the king
He's cursed to sing
Lies about tales
'cause the king never fails
No freedom, no choice
About his own voice
