Submitted by level
1. Plunging to Megadeath (4:54)
Plunging To Megadeath

Warriors on horseback from out of the sky coming to take you away
Your life as it stands now in their hands it lies you won't live another full day
Man now he wonders just when he will die searching and seeking the truth
For now he wants but one thing on this earth the perilous fortunes of youth

[Chorus]
Plunging to Megadeath
Seeking the truth
Plunging to Megadeath
Searching the youth
Plunge to Megadeath

You live for tomorrow we live for today our strength's held here within our youth
Man soars through spacebut he still wonders who lies and just who speaks the truth
Worrying won't bring you one bit of good if you die you'll die not at will
You'll soon be feeling the cold hand of doom is your blood beginning to chill?

[Chorus]

Nighttime falls in the city
Your lying alone in your bed
The picture in your dreams isn't pretty
The tombstone lies there at your head

Warriors on horseback from out of the sky coming to take you away
Your life as it stands now in their hands in lies you won't live another full day
Man now he worries just when he will die searching and seeking the truth
For now, he wants but one thing on this earth the perilsand fortunes of youth

[Chorus]
2. Outer Limits (3:46)
Outer Limits

They're coming, they're soaring they're flying right out of the sky
You're hearing the screams of your comrades and wondering why
Stare at the skies as they're starting to land You sob and you cry with your headin your hands
You can't imagine what terror they bring
A world gone mad where bedlam is king

Alien forces from out of the sky
Conquering all who appear to their eyes
They come without warning no mercy they show
Soon you'll be seeing the end of the world
You can't imagine what terror they bring
A world gone mad where bedlam is king

[Chorus]
Under, your under invasion
Terror unknown to man
Under, your under invasion
Reeks terror across the land

Run for shelterthey're moving in
Soon the world will be seeing the end
You can't imagine what terror they bring
A world gone mad where bedlam is king

They're coming, they're soaring they're flying right out of the sky
You're hearing the screams of your comrades and wondering why
They come without warning no mercy they show
Soon you'll be seeing the end of the world
You can't imagine what terror they bring
A world gone mad where bedlam is king

[Chorus]
3. Horrorshow (2:28)
Horrorshow

There exists two worlds for you one is false and one is true
I have lost my shirt my friends paranoid vision, my brain is mildew
I lost reality long ago now I live in a Horrorshow!

Reality is a tightrope trick once fell, real beasts devour quick
My fictional beasts are real to me my very thoughts a caustic
I lost reality long ago now I live in a Horrorshow!

Truth, fiction, one and the same one is real, the other to blame
I don't care what your bishops say truthshall eat the skull of the lame
I lost reality long ago nowI live in a Horrorshow!
4. The Mansion (3:05)
The Mansion

I walked into the room
There came a voice saying aloud
"Thou hast no business here!"
"Your best bets to get out!"

[Chorus]
The spirits in my head said
"You don't have to run!"
"You don't have to run!"

I was not afraid of the dead I'd dealt with them before
That's how I got my new life 1000 years ago or more
I knew I must return to this house too much for me to bear
The world outside, I just can't stand I just can't live out there!

[Chorus]

She's waiting for you in the upstairs room
She's waiting for you in her bed
She's waiting for you as you're climbing the stairs
She's waiting for you and she's dead!

Close the door feel the presence of Black Magic! Thinking that you'll never die is so tragic
You hold her close, you look into her dark eyes
Could this be, the devil in disguise?
5. There Are No Rules (1:43)
There Are No Rules

Shake your fist at the sky did your god up and die did your hero ever lie does your brain ever fry

There are no rules

Let the thunder cry mean let the gods make a scene how can you fight it out throw your head back and shout

There are no rules

What gives you the right to stand up and fight there is only one rule though it may sound cruel

There are no rules

The wages of sin have the highest wage take a trip through hell cause the demons to rage

There are no rules

Every generation bears a soldier of the truth who marches through the realm setting fire to every roof yelling

There are no rules

And as the flames leap high into the stormy night he leaps onto a log and laughs at the masses burning bright yelling

There are no rules

Feel the flame in my voice do you have any choice but to reach out for the sky grab the sun you may no die

There are no rules

Let the armies of the land march on till their damned my fetus will not spill on the ground that they till

There are no rules

Shake your god by the robe tell him what you intend that's what it's gonna be he'll know in the end that

There are no rules
There are no rules
There are no rules
There are no ruaaaaa!!
6. Valley of the Dolls (1:07)
7. Metal Merchants (3:20)
Metal Merchants

Conquering and pillaging our metal it will stand
The mighty metallion will be heard across the land
In the end aren't we all animals and leather is the word
So welcome to the human zoo where metal can be heard

[Chorus]
Metal Merchants
Metal Merchants

Conquering and pillaging unleashed and let go
Death to modern music and to all who oppose
We'll blacken eyes of their severed heads dismember them at night
We'll shove our metal down their throats and show them who is right

[Chorus]

Bang your head against the stage
Throw, throw your fist up in the air
Don't worry their downgrading of our leather and long hair
Thrusting with a vengeance now we know just what they are
We're all Metal merchants and there ain't no fucking stars.

[Chorus]
8. Hallows Eve (Including Routine) (8:05)
Hallows Eve (Including Routine)

Hear the voices, see the faces
Feel the chill of the fog rolling
Let me bring you, tales of terror
Let me bring you, the macabre tale of

Hallows Eve, let me bring you terror fear grips your heart as you've ne'r known
Hallows Eve, let me bring you horror shock grips your soul, as you've ne'r known

Lay your ear to the floor
Hear us down below
Calling to be released
From your private twilight zone

Hallows Eve, the rising of the dead
Hallows Eve, and bedlam will rule
Hallows Eve, turn look past the shadows our dark carnival is about to begin!

Arriving home as you've done everyday before
Up you walk, up to you everyday door
Pulling out the key you've known so long
You open the door and everything is wrong

Before your eyes a paradise unfolds
Money trees, whiskey and wenches to hold
Turn around to see the door is gone
Forget 'bout the home you've known so long

You turn to face the enigmatic scene
It is all so beautiful yet this is no dream
It is all you ever wanted, don't be naive
See the gates around, you can't leave

Such frustration to be trapped in a cage...
Skin of fair wrenching only serves to enrage
They offer you the fruits of all you see
You can't have the goods 'cause you're not free

Suddenly the trees are burnt and dead
The babbling brook turns to bloody red
The demonic faces of the women turn
Only to reveal that now you'll burn

Demons of all kind appear
Their faces all distort and leer
One is wielding quite an axe
You are thrown upon your back
The axe is raised above your head....

"STOP!! It is not yet his time, but we will have him soon enough..."

The harpies with their webbed wings laugh away
The Filthy One says that you can't stay
The Master says your time has not begun
We will send you back, but we will have our fun
It won't take long and you'll be back for good
We'll let you meet the axe-man with the hood
He will rind your bones and we'll have our meat
You'll feel and be alive, but grovel at our feet

Arriving home as you've done everyday before
Up you walk, up to your everyday door
Though you don't know why, you feel quite strange
You leave your home behind, guess, you need a change?

Hear those voices, see those faces
Feel the chill of the fog rolling
Let me bring you tales of terror
Let me bring you the macabre tale of

Hallows Eve, let me bring you terror fear grips your heart as you've never known
Hallows Eve, let me bring you horror shock grips your soul, as you've never known

Lay your ear to the floor
Hear us down below
Hear the wicked saint laugh
From his vile embryo

A toast my friends to you
Rehearse you loudest scream
I am out to get you
I am I am

Hellish grace, thief of light
Lurking always in the night
I could have you one by one
Creeping round till I'm done

Demons taking to the sky
Round and round and round they fly
The well are sick, the sick are well
Living in eternal hell

Celebrate the quaking quill
of Edgar Allan Poe, you will
Scream, scream for your Christ
Everlasting antichrist

Bouts with death do not serve
To change a man's belief, just nerve
Only to reveal more clear
Just who does he serve on Hallows Eve?
