Atomic Winter Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Bermuda (4:15)
The triangle, it's a mystery.
Disappearing, both ships and planes.
What kind of a secret?
We can only guess.

In Bermuda,
we don't stand a chance.

There must be night,
in Bermuda.
Use all your light,
to find what's going on.

Is it heaven or hell?
Only time will tell
if it dares to show itself,
dares to show itself.

How will we find it?
How will we find the key?
How will we break the block
of the mystery?

There must be night
in Bermuda.
Use all your light.
We must have peace of mind
and common sense.

And what if we find it,
if we find the key.
Are we sure we want to open
the door to our DESTINY...
2. Who Am I (3:40)
In the time when I was born,
the human race was at it's dawn.
Darkness wiped away the hope.
Lightning was my birth
when fear ruled the earth.
It was my mission to take away the pain.

I wasn't given no name at all.
Tell me why.
I was sent out to fight until I fall.
Who am I?

On the edge of danger,
on the edge of lies,
I feel the power
in my body start to rise.
I start to enjoy the killing,
I start to enjoy the shock
of fighting the devil in disguise.

I wasn't given no name at all.
Tell me why.
I was sent out to fight until I fall.
Who am I?

When I strike the enemy
and send him back to hell.
I have to pay for the victory
with my soul.
I was born to be sacrificed,
I was born to be doomed.
My destiny was to hang
by the gallows pole
3. Spellbreaker (3:55)
He needs blood, he needs darkness.
He's the count on the hill.
He hates sunlight, he hates the cross.
He needs you for his survival!

I'm a victim, I'm a victim
waiting for the Spellbreaker.

Don't kiss the stranger
without a look in the mirror!
Suddenly there, suddenly gone!
Hey girl!
Do you feel the danger?
Spellbreaker!

Get Down! Here we come!
Lay down! Are you ready to die?
Don't strain! It's all in vain.
Just scream out in pain!
We're going to stab the pole
right through his heart.
We're going to burn the castle
on the top of the hill.

We took the cross, we took the pole
and destroyed him forever.
But his friends in the night are still there.
They have tasted the final kiss.
They are victims, they are victims
waiting for the Spellbreaker.
4. Beware (4:49)
It was about midnight,
my body was falling apart.
I could feel it spread all over the place.
It was like a ghost in my veins.
My blood was boiling, the heat was cruel.
Got to get out from my place.
Got to escape from this case.

While I was running my feeling was taken away.
I received a message from my mind:
"Prepare yourself for the journey
which you are going to do,
the journey into your soul."

The ground started to tremble,
suddenly he was there.
Pointing the finger he said:
"Now you be ware.
Welcome to my cave, just follow me.
I've got something for you I want you to see..."

I trembled in shock,
tried to keep awake.
But it was taking over all my mind
about the thing that poisoned me.
Still he was nowhere to be found.

The ground started to tremble.
Suddenly he was there,
pointing the finger he said:
"Now you be ware.
Welcome to my cave, just follow me.
I've got something for you, I want you to see..."
5. Religion (5:25)
They are fighting on islands.
They are fighting at sea.
They are fighting for justice.
They are fighting for me.
I'm not a believer.
Thank God for that.
They try to use me as a receiver
for their useless chat.

The root of all evil
is what we have in mind.
I don't know what
they are trying to find.
Maybe the creator of Adam and Eve.
But why in hell must they hate
each others beliefs.

Roots of all evil.
The roots of our minds.
Religion, religion.

One man is for heaven,
the other represents hell.
And they start to fight
when they ring the bell.
Don't think I'm watching
this senseless game.
For me and my soul
they do just the same.

Roots of all evil.
The roots of our minds.
Religion, religion.

Black:
is the collar of the priest and his voice.
Light:
is the force he wants to praise.
Knight:
is the title of the man who does the killing work.

People are ruined
by the collecting man.
And the money finances a plan.
The meaning of his message is to get
you signed on their list of hired minds.

Roots of all evil.
The roots of our minds.
Religion, religion.

Black:
is the collar of the priest and his voice.
Light:
is the force he wants to praise.
Knight:
is the title of the man who does the killing work.

Why can't they be satisfied
with their work with souls?
Why must the money take control?
The priests are all waiting
for the final cut of the universe.

Roots of all evil.
The roots of our minds.
Religion, religion.
6. The Extreme Unction (2:48)
A crowd of people are shouting and screaming.
I flinch in fear, I must be dreaming.
The judge stares with the eyes of a lizard.
The crowd they shout: "Death to the wizard!"

I'm searching the seven.
That door isn't heaven.
It's leading straight to hell.

Suffer and burn.
There's no evidence.
Where's my defense.
Suffer and burn.
What have I done,
what the hell is going on.

Looking for heaven, they took me for a raven,
in a game with very bad odds.
Same words from the priest who looks like a beast,
I pray for all the gods.

They're pointing and laughing.
"Let him burn", they're shouting.
I'm scared, I hear the bell.

Suffer and burn.
What have I done,
what the hell is going on.

The extreme unction...

Looking for heaven, they took me for a raven,
in a game with very bad odds.
The extreme unction has not the right function.
My soul was already with the gods.
7. Dark Heroes (6:38)
The open grave shines of black light.
Oh, it hurts my eyes.
The wind, it whispers, don't feel fright.
I know it's only lies.

Now I know it's time to do my work.
I'm protected by the dark.
I can hardly walk away from the graveyard.
And I hear the wolves howl.

Living dead, it hurts so bad.
Can't find a friend. Oh, I feel so sad.

There is the man, I've got a contract on.
He starts to run away.
I pick up a brick and throw it through the night.
I hear the human cry.

There is a victim just in front of me.
He starts to beg for me to set him free.
But no I can't, I'm tied by the fee.

Living dead, it hurts so bad.
Can't find a friend. Oh, I feel so sad.
8. Living Dead (3:20)
The open grave shines of black light.
Oh, it hurts my eyes.
The wind, it whispers, don't feel fright.
I know it's only lies.

Now I know it's time to do my work.
I'm protected by the dark.
I can hardly walk away from the graveyard.
And I hear the wolves howl.

Living dead, it hurts so bad.
Can't find a friend. Oh, I feel so sad.

There is the man, I've got a contract on.
He starts to run away.
I pick up a brick and throw it through the night.
I hear the human cry.

There is a victim just in front of me.
He starts to beg for me to set him free.
But no I can't, I'm tied by the fee.

Living dead, it hurts so bad.
Can't find a friend. Oh, I feel so sad.
9. Atomic Winter (8:09)
In 2048 there came some desperate waves.
They called it war, everything was all right so far.

But when the nations declared that
nuclear defense had failed,
you could hear the sound of death
when it hit the ground.

The human race was doomed.
They started to dig them selves underground.
Trying to get shelter from the radiation fallout.

It was nearly to late, there was no time to hesitate.
Just try to survive, then the snow started to fall.

You know we don't want to die,
trying to hide from the nuclear fire.
Take your homeless soul and come with us in the unknown.

The migration had just begun, they walked from town to town.
Trying to find a responsible person to hang for their pain.

Then they found some fuel.
The snow was glowing hard and cruel.
The temperature went down to 20 below at most.

You know we don't want to die,
trying to hide from the nuclear fire.
Take your homeless soul and come with us in the unknown.

They constructed a vessel and down below
they started to coad it with hard glowing snow
to lift them of the earth, to find another home.

Higher and higher they flew away
from pain and disease, trying to live in peace.
