Raging Steel Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. The Dawn (1:24)
by Harris Johns inspired by Deathrow
2. Raging Steel (4:13)
-Raging Steel-

Now the dawn rises, the tension awakes
Silence falls over the plain
Thousands of knights are facing each other
To fight for the heathen´s domain
Nobody knows what is to come
The suspense is growing with fear
Everyone is prepared to give his life
They feel the battle is near

Chorus:
“The final judgement will say you are right
Right to do all you have done”
-Just an illusion against any remorse
Given by the “holy ones”
Believers fought a war without sense
Killed and were killed by the force
Of raging steel

The leaders has giventhe sign to fight
Now the crowds are moving on
Both sides are meeting, hate and contempt
So many lives will be lost
Screams and cries, orders and shouts
Echo over the mass
Dying bodies among raging steel
Fighting and dying for nothing

Chorus:
“The final judgement will say you are right
Right to do all you have done”
-Just an illusion against any remorse
Given by the “holy ones”
Believers fought a war without sense
Killed and were killed by the force
Of raging steel

Murderers under the sign of the cross
Crusaders with orders to kill
Searching for heathens in the holy land
The plans of the church to fullfill
Blinded by words of priests and popes
The lie of a life afte death
Too blind to see that each God you pray to
Doesn´t mean nothing-but hope

So many lives will be lost
Screams and cries, orders and shouts
Echo over the mass
Dying bodies among raging steel
Fighting and dying for nothing

The leaders has giventhe sign to fight
Now the crowds are moving on
Both sides are meeting, hate and contempt
So many lives will be lost
Screams and cries, orders and shouts
Echo over the mass
Dying bodies among raging steel
Fighting and dying for nothing
3. Scattered by the Wind (5:12)
-Scattered By The Wind-

In 1939
A crazy man ruled germany
Hitler was the asshole´s name
The name of tyranny
The people that were against the regime
Were executed and hunted
His twisted mind decided to
Destroy the jewish race

A new kind of killing had to be created
A giant machinery of death
The final solution, the holocaust,
The conzentration camps

Lead-Sven

Forced in waggons like cattle
On their way to the slaughterhouse
They deported them to the camps
To extermination them all
Auschwitz and Dachau
And whatever they were called
Sadistic tormentors and immense pain
Awaited them inside

A new kind of killing had to be created
A giant machinery of death
The final solution, the holocaust,
The conzentration camps

Lead-Sven

Chorus:
Hunger and thirst, torture and fear
Coldness and deadly disease
Medical experiments
To test how much pain can be born
Slow death by Zyklon-B
In the shower rooms
Bones and flesh, burnt to dust
And scattered by the wind

Senseless work, till total exhaustion
Left to die, nacked in the snow

Lead-Sven
Lead-Thomas
Lead-Sven

Executions, in the early dawn
Emaciated, corpses for or from the flames
Barbed wire, heavy current fence
No escape, from this earthly hell

Chorus:
Hunger and thirst, torture and fear
Coldness and deadly disease
Medical experiments
To test how much pain can be born
Slow death by Zyklon-B
In the shower rooms
Bones and flesh, burnt to dust
And scattered by the wind

4. Dragon's Blood (5:57)
-Dragon´s Blood-

Haunting the earth in ancient times
When magic was strong and true
When dragons and demons were
A reality people knew
Witches and warlocks
Where casting their spells
Fighting for power in the magic realm
Sending each other to hell

Immortality
The highest might
Could be reached
In only on fight

Chorus:
To become a part, in the arena of gods
They had to be
Forever safe, safe from the scythe of death
By taking a bath
In dragon´s blood

Armed with swords and magic rings
They sought to reach their aim
But their corpses were filling the caves
Where all of them died in pain

Lead-Sven

Haunting the earth in ancient times
When magic was strong and true
When dragons and demons were
A reality people knew
Witches and warlocks
Where casting their spells
Fighting for power in the magic realm
Sending each other to hell

Immortality
The highest might
Could be reached
In only on fight

Chorus:
To become a part, in the arena of gods
They had to be
Forever safe, safe from the scythe of death
By taking a bath
In dragon´s blood

5. The Thing Within (5:58)
Night after night, the same thing happens
Something takes over my soul
I try to resist, but I´ve got no chance
Again I lose and it wins
Emptiness fills my body
My eyes see things which cannot be
Am I insane or is this a dream?
I am no longer me

A strange feeling grips my mind
A growing need to kill
It comes out of the nothingness
And possesses my will
Orders start rushing through my brain
To kill everything in sight
I feel it´s diabolic lust
To slay with delight

My body is lead through empty streets
By the invisible force
I hide in the shadows, smell every being
Unheared of instincts awake
I´m like a puppet, guided by strings
Filled with the breath of life
Pliable I´ll obey my master
Will feel no remorse

A strange feeling grips my mind
A growing need to kill
It comes out of the nothingness
And possesses my will
Orders start rushing through my brain
To kill everything in sight
I feel it´s diabolic lust
To slay with delight

Now the thing totally unfolds
Making me it´s slave
Want to look for harmless victims
To send them to their graves
The order are clear, I will obey
-Kill everything in sight
hungry for the smell of blood
I will slay with delight

[Lead-Sven]
[Lead-Sven & Thomas]
[Lead-Sven]

Morning light is falling, on my sweaty face
I open my eyes
My clothes are torn to pieces, dry blood everywhere
What have I done?
I look on the clock, already afternoon
I know it will happen again

Again ! - It will happen to me
Again ! - The thing won´t set me free
Again ! - I will obey
Again ! - The thing will be my fate
6. Pledge to Die (4:07)
Fight for the symbol, which you defeat
Don´t ask what for or for whom
Follow the holy call and defend
Your land against infidels and martyrs
Do you really want to die for someone
Who gives you the order:"Fight till death" !
"Save and defend our religion
and you´ll get my blessing for sure".

[Chorus:]
Murdering, destroying both woman or children
Forever we´ll follow his command
Take these lives to save your own
In the name of God we´ll kill
Pledge to die !
Pledge to die !

Not you command your thoughts as if hypnotized your body follows the call
Millions of fanatics are addicted already
And kill for the tyrant you live for
Expelling the evil, saving the good
Christianity turns into hate
If you see the good in yourself
Use it or die in illusion

[Chorus:]
Murdering, destroying both woman or children
Forever we´ll follow his command
Take these lives to save your own
In the name of God we´ll kill
Pledge to die !
Pledge to die !

[Lead- Thomas & Sven]

Fight for the symbol, which you defeat

"Save and defend our religion
and you´ll get my blessing for sure".

[Chorus:]
Murdering, destroying both woman or children
Forever we´ll follow his command
Take these lives to save your own
In the name of God we´ll kill
Pledge to die !
Pledge to die !
7. Mortal Dread (4:49)
Footsteps are coming near
Voices are crying a strange tone
Your body is full of fear
The night is black and you are alone
The wind rushes through the trees
It's howling is filling your ears
Restless breath at your back
The anguish of your mortal fear

[Chorus:]
You can't escape
From your own mind
Deadly pain
Insanity reigns
Mortal Dread !
Mortal Dread !

Unnatural coldness
Is embracing your heart
Eyes are staring at you
Laughter comes out of the dark
You feel surrounded
By something you cannot see
Running from the shadows
No chance to be free

[Chorus:]
You can't escape
From your own mind
Deadly pain
Insanity reigns
Mortal Dread !
Mortal Dread !

[Lead-Sven]
[Lead-Sven & Thomas]
[Lead-Sven]

[Chorus:]
You can't escape
From your own mind
Deadly pain
Insanity reigns
Mortal Dread !
Mortal Dread !
8. The Undead Cry (4:06)
9. Beyond The Light (6:25)
A long, long time he stayed in deathrow, now the chosen day has come
Lead by the ushers of the court, let the judgment be done
Long ago he saw the daylight without bars
But this is the last time his sun will rise
Walking towards the gallows, he knows the sling awaits him
From somewhere he hears music, it´s toneless sound makes him afraid

Suddenly the music stops, for him the sign to go
Was it the melody of death or of mercy he doesn´t now
Now he stands on the gallows, face towards the rope
He believes that after his fall, there´s no future, there´s no hope
Now his head´s fills the sling, he feels the agony growing
Executioner´s hand moves the gear-lever, first he hovers than he falls !

A sudden push through his body
With open eyes he stares at this fate
His lungs gasp for air, his brain explodes
The abyss of death comes much nearer

[Lead-Sven]
[Lead-Sven & Thomas]

Hovering in darkness, his body dies
His mind exists, searching for light
A strange feeling, to fly through eternity
A glow in the darkness, it´s a light he now sees

The glowing light comes nearer
He flies into this soul-mirror
Now he can see his now phantom mind
And his life, that´s now passed behind

[Lead-Sven & Thomas]

But a quickly growing dark vortex
Draws him away from his soul´s destruction
Now all his emotions and all of his thoughts
Dissolve in silence-into nothingness

[Lead-Sven]
