Maximum Overload Lyrics

Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. The Game (4:56)
Messed up once again, told me it's okay
But this path that I'm taking
I'm lost in the deep end

One last chance, never more, told me it's alright
In this sea of denial
I'm cleansed in the fire

So why is it me?
Am I blinded or too blind to see?

Why was I born
Not a part of this society?
Again and again,

I tried so hard to reach for the stars but I failed you all
Tried to keep standing tall
Never had a real chance at all
But still I'm searching

Same thing, different day, try to make a change
Left with nothing more to live for
But everything to die for

Humanity, insanity, the everlasting grip
Lost all will to keep trying
Our beds we must lie in

So why was I born
Not a part of this society?
Again and again,

I tried so hard to reach for the stars but I failed you all
Tried to keep standing tall
Never had a real chance at all
But still I'm searching...

For ten thousand ways to say sorry
But life writes it's own tragic story
Time marches onwards and nothing can ever be the same

But we'll pray for a brighter tomorrow
Break free from this lifetime of sorrow
Years pass us by but we're all just a part of the game

I tried so hard to reach for the stars but I failed you all
Tried to keep standing tall
Never had a real chance at all
But still I'm searching

I tried so hard to reach for the stars but I failed you all
Tried to keep standing tall
Never had a real chance at all
But still I'm searching...

For ten thousand ways to say sorry
But life writes it's own tragic story
Time marches onwards and nothing can ever be the same

But we'll pray for a brighter tomorrow
Break free from this lifetime of sorrow
Years pass us by but we're all just a part of the game
2. Tomorrow King (4:13)
Candles burning, the hours turning
A countdown the day that we’re born
Don’t look backwards, keep driving forwards
The rose withers but not the thorns

If you want it then you can take it
Just seize it before it’s too late
And if all fails get back on your feet
There’s always another today but still we’ll

Pray for one last chance to prove we all belong
Through the dark nights and cold days while time
marches on

In this life we’re running out of days
We’re running out of time ignoring it’s a crime
No regrets just one shot at glory is all we got
before we die
Sands of time are slipping through our hands
So try and understand and do it while you can
Don’t look back just one shot at glory is all it
takes to feel alive

Anger rising relentless fighting but soon you’ll be
finally free
Find your way through this endless maze be the one
that you wanted to be

Pray for one last chance to prove we all belong
Through the dark nights and cold days while time
marches on

In this life we’re running out of days
We’re running out of time ignoring it’s a crime
No regrets just one shot at glory is all we got
before we die
Sands of time are slipping through our hands
So try and understand and do it while you can
Don’t look back just one shot at glory is all it
takes to feel alive

Fear not a twisted future
No matter what it brings
Can’t you see now you’re all tomorrow’s kings
Tomorrow's kings!

Pray for one last chance to prove we all belong
Through the dark nights and cold days while time
marches on

In this life we’re running out of days
We’re running out of time ignoring it’s a crime
No regrets just one shot at glory is all we got
before we die
Sands of time are slipping through our hands
So try and understand and do it while you can
Don’t look back just one shot at glory is all it
takes to feel alive
3. No More (3:50)
The light is shining
Still I’m not so surprised
One thousand voicemails
For one thousand lies

Blind faith – lost trust
All along it was plain to see
Years passed – lost touch
Leads the path to insanity

Take another shot
Show me what you got
It was never gonna last forever

Open your eyes
Try and realise
Once is enough so tonight now I say

No more!
From a voice that breaks the awkward silence
No more!
Never heard so loud before
Made the same mistakes a thousand times
Never meant to be like this so I say
No more tonight
And it feels all right

Dark nights – long passed
Waking up from a pointless dream
Brighter days – brighter times
Hides the fatal reality

Questions – answers
False addiction to nothing real
Lights fade – crushed to dust
Desperation in tragedy

Take another shot
Show me what you got
It was never gonna last forever

Open your eyes
Try and realise
Once is enough so tonight now I say

No more!
From a voice that breaks the awkward silence
No more!
Never heard so loud before
Made the same mistakes a thousand times
Never meant to be like this so I say
No more tonight
And it feels all right

No more
Same old game we play together
No more
Time will pass we’ll still remember
No more
But tonight this game is over
No more
Strangers in the night forever

No more!
From a voice that breaks the awkward silence
No more!
Never heard so loud before
Made the same mistakes a thousand times
Never meant to be like this so I say
No more tonight
And it feels all right
4. Three Hammers (5:50)
Lost long ago through the ages of time
Once ruled immortal, the guardians of light
Bonded together they stood side by side
Storm winds brought darkness – the world in decline

Quest for the hammers to reclaim the throne
Three brought together by warriors unknown
United to vanquish all hell from the earth
Conquering glory the kingdoms rebirth

Raise your swords, sound the final war cry
Stand! Fight! Fight got your lives!
Thousands will die but their deaths not in vain
Now reunited our world may be free once again

Three hammers high, in the burning red sky
Forged in the fire, protectors of mankind
Three hammers high, for the world we unite
Fight for our lives
As we hold up the three hammers high

Long have we travelled through forgotten lands
From coldest valleys to burning red sands
Restless we ride through the depths of all hell
Triumph and agony – death will prevail

Raise your swords, sound the final war cry
Stand! Fight! Fight got your lives!
Strike back with vengeance till death we defend
Until the day that the dragons will rise once again

Three hammers high, in the burning red sky
Forged in the fire, protectors of mankind
Three hammers high, for the world we unite
Fight for our lives
As we hold up the three hammers high

Strike down the unbelievers
March on for justice we now stand
Once more the path for glory
Take back the power in our hands

Long years of terror and the long years of pain
Still marching onwards will victory’s ours once again
Victory’s ours once again!

Three hammers high, in the burning red sky
Forged in the fire, protectors of mankind
Three hammers high, for the world we unite
Fight for our lives
As we hold up the three hammers high

Three hammers high, in the burning red sky (woahhh!)
Forged in the fire, protectors of mankind (high in the burning red sky!)
Three hammers high, for the world we unite
Fight for our lives
As we hold up the three hammers high
5. Symphony of the Night (5:19)
Hiding in the fog
Where darkness meets the moonlight
I will sing your melody till the morning comes
Living for you only
Take my hand and show me
There will be much sorrow
When the morning comes

Fearless I’m fighting the pain burns inside of me
Find the forces of my soul
No one can understand me
Am I condemned to ride the blackest night alone

Tragic painting on the walls
In this castle where affliction reigns
So many died in vain
Hear their distant cries
Never again!

This is my symphony (my symphony)
My Dark blessing falls from the skies
I hear the voice
Rising from the void
Of the memories gone by
Dark is the path for me
I’ll find my peace another way
Under the stars where we’ll shine again some day

Torment and sadness unleashed through these corridors
Fear is leading to the night
Bloodline of vampires doomed to fulfill the need
Once united by the light
Father! Look into my eyes
I shall kill you tonight to avenge
All those who died in vain
Hear their distant cries
Never again!

This is my symphony (my symphony)
My Dark blessing falls from the skies
I hear the voice
Rising from the void
Of the memories gone by
Dark is the path for me
I’ll find my peace another way
Under the stars where we’ll shine again some day
To the stars where we’ll shine again some day
To the stars where we’ll shine again some day
6. The Sun Is Dead (6:34)
Inception
Death's guiding us the way
We fight till the end
Among the ruins
Illusion
Of brighter days ahead
Through confusion and hatred, we try to understand
In silence, we stand alone

Caught in the eye
A quest for life beneath a stormy sky
The strength to rise again

Time to realize
Our race has come to nothing
We'll start it all again

The sun is dead now
Fading away forever
The darkness prevails now
But with the prayers of the dead
Now a new light ascends from the stars

Confusion
The sadness and the pain
Matricide, the earth is now dead
Remember the brighter days
When hope and joy were shining in our hearts
Times have changed now, we suffer yet try to understand
In silence, we stand alone

Caught in the eye
The fragments of my past to realize
It's time to rise again

In the world's demise
Our race has come to nothing
We'll start it all again

The sun is dead now
Fading away forever
The darkness prevails now
But with the prayers of the dead
Now a new light ascends from the stars

The sun is dead now
But in the end, what did we learn?

The sun is dead now
Fading away forever
The darkness prevails now
But with the prayers of the dead
Now a new light ascends from the stars

Now a new light ascends from the stars
7. Defenders (5:45)
Life's uncertain, a rat-race of pain
Endlessly searching for more
Hopeless and needless, held back by the chains
'Till we can't take anymore

Hold on, stay strong
Breaking out from the past life fading
No more, what for
All we got is to keep on praying

Pray for the done for, the lives in dismay
Witness the final decay
Suffering in silence for years we were blind
But, now we got something to say

Hold on, Stay strong
'Till the end a fate of dying
No more, what for
Nothing left but to keep on fighting

Pre-chorus:
United, incited, not misguided
We'll fight through time before our one true destiny
Benighted, ignited, still strong and undivided
This day foretold now here for all to see

Chorus
So free in the blue skies with time marches on
Once more maybe we'll find our peace to behold
Strangers in a strange world, defenders through time
Cursed in a kingdom of fire

Legends of darkness will be on the grave
Spill their blood under the sun
Voices are calling with anger and rage
The final war now has begun

Hold on, stay strong
'Till the end, not afraid of dying
No more, what for
Nothing left but to keep on fighting

Pre-chorus
United, incited, not misguided
We'll fight through time before our one true destiny
Benighted, ignited, still strong and undivided
This day foretold now here for all to see

So free in the blue skies with time marches on
Once more maybe we'll find our peace to behold
Strangers in a strange world, defenders through time
Cursed in our kingdom a unholy fire

Hear our call, save us all
Standing tall tonight

The flame will slowly fade away
The shadows of our lives
Will wash away the memories
Before the last sunrise

We'll keep holding on
In the sands of changes
Standing strong against the winds
Until the end of time

(Solo)

Hold on, stay strong
'Till the end, not afraid of dying
No more, what for
Nothing left but to keep on fighting

Pre-chorus
United, incited, not misguided
We'll fight through time before our one true destiny
Benighted, ignited, still strong and undivided
This day foretold now here for all to see

So free in the blue skies with time marches on
Once more maybe we'll find our peace to behold
Strangers in a strange world, defenders through time
Cursed in a kingdom of unholy fire

Hear our call, save us all
Standing tall tonight (x2)
8. Extraction Zone (5:06)
"Uh, we got a killstreak coming up if anyone's interested."

It’s getting late at night by a freezing moon
The time is running out and the end is soon
An army in despair – don’t know what to do

Impure thoughts are raging in this empty room
The victims are escaping now we shall regroup
The times are getting tougher as we face our doom

A circus of horrors waiting just for you
The barrel’s bottom anything will do
So take my hand and I will lead you right into

Extraction zone, the zone, you can make yourself at home
Extraction zone, your zone, you don’t have to feel alone
Where dreams become reality and standards will now cease to be
So live your life in the extraction zone!

Another place another time we carry on
Not getting any easier cos we’re getting on
A creature from another world it’s gone all wrong

A circus of horrors waiting just for you
The barrel’s bottom anything will do
So take my hand and I will lead you right into

Extraction zone, the zone, you can make yourself at home
Extraction zone, your zone, you don’t have to feel alone
Where dreams become reality and standards will now cease to be
So live your life in the extraction zone!

As a new dawn will rise
I promise myself not again
But deep in my heart
The fire still burn just the same
Still the same

A circus of horrors waiting just for you
The barrel’s bottom anything will do
So take my hand and I will lead you right into

Extraction zone, the zone, you can make yourself at home
Extraction zone, your zone, you don’t have to feel alone
Where dreams become reality and standards will now cease to be
So live your life in the extraction zone!
9. City of Gold (4:43)
Her dream was to shine on the screen
Felt that was why she was born
Left all behind without a fear inside
But sometimes there’s no lucky star to help you

Sun will go down, and she’s all alone
Can’t help but feel insecure
She’ll never stop, the way to the top
Is more than she bargained for

Her quest for the glory was real
But somehow it turned out all wrong
Heartache was never a part of the dream
Can’t find a reason to keep on trying

Turn out the lights, cos deep in the night
Just like the thousands before
Hold up your hand, there’s hope at the end
But be careful what you wish for

Now the lights are all gone
You find yourself on your own
Welcome the night, cos not all the glitters is gold
Now the city has gone
You find your own way back home
Keep up the fight, and you’ll find your kingdom of gold

Another night out on the streets
Finding a way to survive
Wasting your chances destroying your dreams
Counting the tears that you cried

Hiding the pain that drives you insane
But still you’re craving for more
So give me your hand, hold on till the end
And you can have what you wish for

Now the lights are all gone
You find yourself on your own
Welcome the night, cos not all the glitters is gold
Now the city has gone
You find your own way back home
Keep up the fight, and you’ll find your kingdom of gold

Now the lights are all gone
You find yourself on your own
Welcome the night, cos not all the glitters is gold

Now the lights are all gone
You find yourself on your own
Welcome the night, cos not all the glitters is gold
Now the city has gone
You find your own way back home
Keep up the fight, and you’ll find your kingdom of gold
10. Ring of Fire (Johnny Cash cover) (3:15)
Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire went wild

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire
The ring of fire
The ring of fire
