1. War of the World (5:14)
Illogical Insanity; society will rust
Break down of the human race
Common sense is lost

Heaven now has turned to hell
There is not a god
The pais is on the street tonight
It's time to join the ultimate fight

Be prepared for the final call
Stay calm be superior
This place is a story to be told
So come on to the other side
You're in for a twisted ride
Your words are mine
As we're fighting the war of the world

THE WAR OF THE WORLD

Condition now it's critical
So give it mouth to mouth
Don't wait for the atomic blast
Just pay just what it costs

The war is on the streets tonight
Beware of the nuclear delight

When I'm gone and sent to my grave
A part of me will stay alive
But what's left to save?
This is the battle of the world
It's time to get it right;we'll set it to burn
2. Bay of Pigs (5:34)
They're out for blood tonight,they're the windowmarkers
Killer Elite:Cuba Invaders
A Motley erew in the line of fire
A raging horde of criminal pilgrims
Murder patrol of heavy drug addicts
Burning wheel on the road to ruin

THIS IS THE DARK CHAPTER OF FREEDOM
BUT NO ONE CARES,WHERE IS THE READER,NOW?
THE WORDS ARE GONE SOMEHOW BUT I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT SO

Break the chains one final time
Well see you on the other side
The Revolutions found to fail
And God is on you side
they aimed to take the residence
Left buy their own president
Failure is what people say
About the Bay Of Pigs

THE BAY OF PIGS

So have you seen the news.
Have you felt desire
The Lust to kill to turn on the pyre
Tell me son:Do you even bother?
Sometimes drives me mad that i don't know
The Secred Script to the question of our lives
Please don't say that i am a liar

Back in the days the remembered the world war
It was for real and just like a time bomb
Why can't we find another way
These boys were on top so:

WHAT A SLAUGHTER

This is the dark side of the story
Hookers of greed;power horny
Let's find another war

THE BAY OF PIGS
3. Braveheart (3:24)
We are talking 'bout the past
And a freedom fighter that will last
He's known as the guardian of Scotland

William Wallace was his name
Fighting to protect the land
A nightmare to the king of England

Rime of the warrior
Fighting the freedom war
Wielding the axe
You know that
Hearts did burn
Time to learn
Blessed be thy brave
Rime of the warrior
Fighting the freedom war
Die by the sword
Rise rise a true sacrifice
The hammer must be stopped

He did not fight to gain the throne
Just to protect the Scottish soil
But one day he had to surrender

Treason brought him to his grave
Captured and tortured like a slave
Taken to London for execution

Rime of the warrior
Fighting the freedom war
Wielding the axe
You know that
Hearts did burn
Time to learn
Blessed be thy brave
Rime of the warrior
Fighting the freedom war
Die by the sword
Rise rise a true sacrifice
The hammer must be stopped

He was a man with a brave heart
The Braveheart [X2]

He was a man with a brave heart
The Braveheart [X2]

This is the rime

Rime of the warrior
Fighting the freedom war
Wielding the axe
You know that
Hearts did burn
Time to learn
Blessed be thy brave
Rime of the warrior
Fighting the freedom war
Die by the sword
Rise rise a true sacrifice
The hammer must be stopped

They called him The Braveheart
The Braveheart [X2]

He was a man with a brave heart
The Braveheart [X2]

True heroes never die
4. The Mad Piper (4:58)
When you walk through the fire if you're lost in the dark
I will tell you son
There are legends of heroes not many are true
But here is one

Let me tell you some more 'bout Normandy
And a name that will shine eternally
A lad who was sent to a place you know well
To play for his comrades on the road to Hell

Walked into the fire without fear in his heart
Only armed with his bagpipe he was destined to march
And the madness could start

Play for me brother like never before
Scottish Piper Bill
Play "Hielan laddie" and "The Road to the Isles"
On your pipe of peace

It was pride it was real and no tale from the past
They were there to be legends to set marks that would last
Soldiers may stand and soldiers may fall
And this is about one who did stand tall

A Scotsman was fighting in world war number one
In the same kilt as our piper like father like son

Play for me brother like never before
Scottish Piper Bill
Play "Hielan laddie" and "The Road to the Isles"
On your pipe of peace
On your pipe of peace

Bring 'em down to their knees

Play for me brother like never before
Scottish Piper Bill
And play "Hielan laddie" and "The Road to the Isles"
On your pipe of peace

Play for me brother like never before
Scottish Piper Bill
Play "Hielan laddie" and "The Road to the Isles"
On your pipe of peace
On your pipe of peace

Scottish Piper Bill playing for peace
5. USS Monitor (3:42)
I know that the sun goes down
As sure as the world still spins around
This is the new and modern way
Speak of the devil here I am

Came from the Viking land
Caught in the cold couldn't understand
Stuck in the woods of wilderness
Blessed with the fury

Off we go to conquer other shores
I do really want it all
Please open the door

Hold your fire save your life
Armored in the steel the USS Monitor
This is judgment day
The rise of the ironclad

In England but things turned bad
Inventions of mine just could not stand
The west was at war and needed help
Inferno on the river

Armed with iron like a wall
So treat me better than before
And the hammer will fall

Hold your fire save your life
Armored in the steel the USS Monitor
This is judgment day
The rise of the ironclad

Hold your fire save your life
Armed in the steel the USS Monitor
This is judgment day
The rise of the ironclad

It's judgment day

Ironclad [X8]

Hold your fire save your life
Armored in the steel the USS Monitor
This is judgment day
The rise of the ironclad [X2]
6. Tears from the North (4:19)
Now as the longboat disappears behind the morning mist so clear
The were seeking land could they understand that they never would return

They're out on the last crusade in quest after better days
To conquer it all
Viking funeral live forevermore
Fought on the barricades
Tales from the battle days
It's kill or be killed
Pagan minds to find the tears from the north

On the rivers in the east
Rurik came to unleash the beast
People tried to fight against the Swedish might
But they did not stand a chance

Out on the last crusade in quest after better days to conquer it all
Viking funeral live forevermore
Fought on the barricades
Tales from the battle days
It's kill or be killed

Pagan minds the heathens from the north
Out on the last crusade in quest after better days to conquer it all
Lay down your shield and sword
To dry the tears from the north

Mother Russia today would not be the same
If the Vikings had not been
Rimes from the past destined to last
For long

Mr. Eriksson came to America my friend many years before the rest
Men from the north had an urge to explore it all
So I sing you my song

Out on the last crusade in quest after better days to conquer it all
Viking funeral live forevermore
Fought on the barricades
Tales from the battle days
It's kill or be killed
Pagan minds the heathens from the north

Out on the last crusade in quest after better days to conquer it all
Viking funeral live forevermore
Fought on the barricades
Tales from the battle days
It's kill or be killed
I tell you pagan minds to dry the tears from the north

Now as the longboat disappear
Behind the morning mist so clear
They were seeking land could they understand
That they never would return again
7. Admiral over the Oceans (4:50)
It's ship against ship and man against man
The Trafalgar showdown is here
A crucial ordeal, steel against steel: hold on get ready to fire

Victory turned towards the enemy fleet
An alliance between France and Spain
This war on the waves would decide Europe's fate
We don't run: we're here to attack

Blood, smoke and water, body parts everywhere
Cannonballs flying, bullets in the air
Nelson was standing in the middle of it all
No one thought he would fall

He's the admiral over the oceans
The admiral over the sea
He's the admiral over the oceans
If you don't understand, read the history book again!

I do believe they have done it at last
but the battle has been won
I have a short time to live, this time i give in
My duty has been done

Wars can't be won by the hand of just one man
That may be true but listen clear my friend
He sailed the seas with a cause to serve his land
Under Gods command

He's the admiral over the oceans
The admiral over the sea
He's the admiral over the oceans
If you don't understand, read the history book
He's the admiral over the oceans
The emperor over the waves
He's the admiral over the oceans
If you don't understand, read the history book again

Blood, smoke and water, body parts everywhere
Cannonballs flying, bullets in the air
Nelson was standing in the middle of it all
No one thought he would fall

He's the admiral over the oceans
The admiral over the sea
He's the admiral over the oceans
If you don't understand, read the history book
He's the admiral over the oceans
The emperor over the waves
He's the admiral over the oceans

If you don't understand,
take a look at Trafagal Square.
8. Back to Iwo Jima (5:13)
A second of light it came like a flash from heaven
The moment of truth a minute of doubt but then my friend
It came from the sky they came from the sea
We all knew that we would die

The secret of war is that the strongest will stand
Don't ever believe there is some glory
And I can recall when enemies came to invade
So many years ago

Going back to the island again
I'll return to the fire and hell
I wake up every night and I scream after light
As I feel Iwo Jima again
Back to Iwo Jima again

All of us knew
It's over and out but samurais keep fighting
We stand for the flag and aim for the win though we have lost
Recalling the days the warriors way
I can see it though I'm blind

So what do you say if they call you a liar and a thief
And how do you plead are you the guilty
The worst of it all was that I could not go home
To the place where I belong

Going back to the island again
I'll return to the fire and hell
I wake up every night and I scream after light
As I feel Iwo Jima again
Back to Iwo Jima my friend

Going back to the island again
I'll return to the fire and hell
I wake up every night and I scream after light
In the Land of the Rising Sun

I will return to the island again
I'll return to the fire and hell
I wake up every night and I scream after light
I'll go back to the island again
I'll go back to the island again

Back to Iwo Jima again
9. Schindler's Ark (5:32)
Is it the end my friend is this the time to wave
I've been away from home for so long
I look at the fading night
I fear the morning light
Visions of glory days are gone

Now tell me where you are
Then tell me please is it far

To Schindler's Ark
I don't know they're sent there to fade away
I don't know which day I will die
Tell me why the strong doesn't have to pay
Here I am no more will I cry [X2]

Is this the Nazi way
Is this the way they pay
Memories came back to me
Should I stay or should I go
Don't talk to a loaded gun
Father what have I done
Mr. Schindler an angel sent from God

You saved so many lives
Thanks to you I did survive

To Schindler's Ark
I don't know they're sent there to fade away
I don't know which day I will die
Tell me why the strong doesn't have to pay
Here I am no more will I cry [X2]

Schindler's Ark is here

Now tell me where you are
Then tell me please is it far to Schindler's Ark

I don't know they're sent there to fade away
I don't know which day I will die
Tell me why the strong doesn't have to pay
I'm so tired of running

To Schindler's Ark
I don't know they're sent there to fade away
I don't know which day I will die
Tell me why the strong doesn't have to pay
Here I am no more will I cry [X2]

Please Schindler take me home
On Schindler's Ark
10. Gods and Generals (5:22)
On the first page he wrote
So here we go:marching out to the battlefield
All prepared to fight
Be by my side, I pray to my god
And on page forty one
No sign of despair; I can feel lust and courage
Enemies beware
Here come the kings of insanity

We will die on the glory road to heaven
The brave will live forever
I raise my glass and drink to you
Who will fight 'til final breath with honor
Are we gods or generals? Well I'm not sure

After hours of reading
I can see a change, now the war is a raging beast
Many comrades are now dead

Stay with me lord, you're my shield and my sword
At the end of the book; he's another man
Crashed; burned luck had turned

HELL IS HERE AND NOW
WHAT HAVE I DONE AND WHAT HAVE I BECOME

March for me soldiers one final time
Walk against the enemies lines with pride
We'll live and we'll die like a man

I don't know
Is the end of the war

I don't know
Will they back for more
So are we; so are we
Are we gods and general?
11. Knights of Dalecarlia (Bonus Track) (4:32)
I'll sing you a song and I know that it's right
The words that I give will spread some light
A different breed; soldiers from the valley
On occupied land always under attack
Starving and dying, all was black
They went to war; ready to devour

If I live I'll tell how they faced the gates of hell
Stand up sons hold your ground until the end

Give us rain, bring us fire
We are here forevermore
Desperate hearts, knights of Dalecarlia
Through the snow, ice and hailstorms
Defenders of the right to be
Burning souls destined to be free
Knights of Dalecarlia

One man stood up 'gainst the tyrants and tried
To gather an army to fight them down

No one dared but the soldiers from the valley
The Danes had to flee from the rage of the north
Abandoned the land with the freedom call
It's history now and we must all remember

People starved and they died so thank god for those who tried
Flesh and blood, sweat and tears: for you we cry:
12. Colours on My Shield (Bonus Track) (3:21)
Warriors; fight; forever

We are the sons of the power brigade
Walking the endless mile
Riding the storm and we'll never back down
Legends never die
So kneel before the colours on my shield

For a thousand years and more you will stand with guts and pride
The mother of many legends all prepared to stand and fight
So hear me soldiers: let it out

For a thousand fallen brothers I raise my cup and sing
And to all of you that doubt; it's time for us to win
When I say fire we begin

Life is full of danger, death is not a stranger
Darkness turn into light
Burning with desire, heathens on fire
Warriors hear my cry

Life is full of danger, death is not a stranger
Darkness turn into light
Burning with desire, heathens on fire
Warriors hear my cry
