1. Riddle (4:40)
I know we've always been asking ourselves
How do we hatch out of eggs or of shells?
Me and the birds and the flowers and trees
Out of the oceans it's hard to believe

Where do we come from? Where will we go?
This is the riddle we don?t know

Riddles of descent and our mankind
Answers come slowly to shatter our minds
Where do we come from ? It isn't quite clear
When did we first once appear?
Might not be here

If we continue the way that we choose
We're not secure if we win or we lose
The fire keeps burning inside of our heads
Keeping us weighted like iron and lead

Where do we come from? Where will we go?
This is the riddle we don?t know

Riddles of descent and our mankind
Answers come slowly to shatter our minds
Where do we come from? It isn't quite clear
When did we first once appear?
Might not be here

So come on you people this is our chance
Because we've had this success
We hold the future in our hands
To obtain this mighty progress

Can we go on without a sorrow?
For our life we beg, steal and borrow
In a world that won't stop tommorrow,
Filled with joy and restraint and horror

Riddles of descent and our mankind
Answers come slowly to shatter our minds
Where do we come from? It isn't quite clear
When did we first once appear?
Might not be here

Riddles of descent and our mankind
Answers come slowly to shatter our minds
Where do we come from? It isn't quite clear
When did we first once appear?
Might not be here
2. The Game (3:54)
I know there's a part of me
And i'ts what I call the game
So it is and will ever be,
It'll always be the same
And my life seems to be alright
And I believe in what I do
Gotta work every night and day,
Just to make my dreams come true

To win the game,
Means to have so much power
Cause in the game,
We don't need the coward

I might be a better man
If I believe in all the good
Could it be that you're wrong my friend
And you don't struggle like ya should
All the pain pushing down on me,
No this isn't what i need
I don't care bout the other guys
I just wanna get on my feet

To win the game,
Means to have so much power
Cause in the game,
We don't need the coward

We don't need to gamble
We don't need to play
Courage is the answer
For a better way

I remember all the good in life
And all the pleasures that we have had
So important to be powerful
And to be equal to the bad

To win the game,
Means to have so much power
Cause in the game,
We don't need the coward

To win the game,
Means to have so much power
Cause in the game,
We don't need the coward
3. Victory (4:57)
There's a haze upon the water
And the smoke, it hides the land
A full moon is shining
And it's time to take a stand

We'll come,
We'll see,
We'll take the victory
One night in hell,
Then all is well

We'll come,
We'll see,
We'll take the victory
One night in hell,
Then all is well

Then you see the torture
Could it be a crime?
This humiliating justice
Puts indifference in their minds

We'll come,
We'll see,
We'll take the victory
One night in hell,
Then all is well

We'll come,
We'll see,
We'll take the victory
One night in hell,
Then all is well

Tear down the houses,
Burn down the fields
The wind blows the ashes
Over the hills

We'll come,
We'll see,
We'll take the victory
One night in hell,
Then all is well

We'll come,
We'll see,
We'll take the victory
One night in hell,
Then all is well
4. Breaking the Law (Judas Priest cover) (2:07)
There I was completely wasting,
Out of work and down
All inside it's so frustrating
As I drift from town to town
Feel as though nobody cares
If I live or die
So I might as well begin
To put some action in my life

Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law

So much for the golden future,
I can't even start
I've had every promise broken,
There's anger in my heart
You don't know what it's like,
You don't have a clue
If you did you'd find yourselves
Doing the same thing too

Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law

You don't know what it's like.....

Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
5. King of Hill (4:27)
We all thought that we're rebells
We all thought that we're fine
Convinced that we can live forever
And all the power in our minds
Oh, no we are not like angels
Oh, no we can't give you hope
Can't show the face behind the cover
Afraid you're falling down the slope

When you find yourselve alone
Can't get a piece of the action
And there's noone left to take you down
Be the

King of kill
Keep your iron will
Got to live forever
Give us the thrill

You move very nimble foreward
You move creeping by my side
Ther's not a chance for your enemy
There's not a perfect place to hide
Behind the doors and the windows
Behind every single wall
You sense always where the wind blows
You know you got to win it all

When you find yourselve alone
Can't get a piece of the action
And there's noone left to take you down
Be the

King of kill
Keep your iron will
Got to live forever
Give us the thrill

The time has come
You have risen from defeat
But not yet beaten
Till your rival
You shall meet
Behind the gallows
Appears a silhouette
One chance of vengeance
Is all that you will get

King of kill
Keep your iron will
Got to live forever
Give us the thrill
King of kill
Keep your iron will
Got to live forever
Give us the thrill
6. From the Mountains to the Sea (5:42)
Far over the hills and far over the ocean
There is a place of absolute devotion
We have the power and we have the silence
So we can recover from evil and violence

And in control we heal our soul

From the mountains to the sea
Where the light can shine on me
Where the eagles in the sky
Find their place to die

Hear now the story, they told us a rumour
Of power and glory and blackhearted humor
Beyond the curtain of mercyful graceness
You bought off your friends cause
You can't give them kindness

So in control you heal your soul

From the mountains to the sea
Where the light can shine on me
Where the eagles in the sky
Find their place to die

If we return to heaven
Or wherever we come from
Our destiny lies hidden,
Like the clouds can hide the sun
The only thing that matters
Is there's something we can hold
That gives us all the power
To become the wise and old

From the mountains to the sea
Where the light can shine on me
Where the eagles in the sky
Find their place to die

From the mountains to the sea
Where the light can shine on me
Where the eagles in the sky
Find their place to die
7. Time (5:02)
Here we are again
It's time to say goodbye
Remember me my friend
We'll meet us in a while

It's just a promise but you will remember well
These are the words I have to tell

Time
Will make all our dreams
Come true forever
Together we cry for the moon and
Time
Wherever you are
I will be calling
If time should be lost
It won't be soon

Out in the world
And out in the cold
Hear our message
And remember what we've told

It's just a promise but you will remember well
These are the words we have to tell
Time
Will make all our dreams
Come true forever
Together we cry for the moon and
Time
Wherever you are
I will be calling
If time should be lost
It won't be soon

Tell where you are
Tell me when you coming home
Will it be too long
Maybe I don't wanna go

It's just a promise but you will remember well
These are the words we have to tell

Time
Will make all our dreams
Come true forever
Together we cry for the moon and
Time
Wherever you are
I will be calling
If time should be lost
It won't be soon
8. Over the Rainbow (5:30)
When you're in trouble
And when you feel pain
You hear it over
And over again
That demon inside you
He tries to persuade
It's such a tragedy
When it's too late

Over the rainbow
Far beyond the clouds
There's always something
But you can't reach out

It's sometimes hard for you
To overcome
You feel so much better
After it's done
Don't be so lazy
And don't be a fool
You are so stubborn,
As stubborn as a mule

Over the rainbow
Far beyond the clouds
There's always something
But you can't reach out
Follow the fire,
Hold on to your dreams
And with desire
You will find the means

Over the rainbow
Far beyond the clouds
There's always something
But you can't reach out
Follow the fire,
Hold on to your dreams
And with desire
You will find the means
9. Power of Love (3:49)
Don't want it, don't need it,
Be pissed off, or cheated
I never hurt my friends
I tell you my dreams
And my secrets, my sins
I know it's in good hands with you

Dont want it, don't need it,
To see what I believe in
We falsify the truth
Decision, submission,
You know that it sometimes hurts
To be the foolish one

Believe in the power of love
That comes from the heaven above
A saviour from heaven, not hell
We needn't be under his spell

Go onwards, go our way,
We're learning from yesterday
We have to make mistakes
I often think of you
I know that you do it too
This is the bond we justify

Believe in the power of love
That comes from the heaven above
A saviour from heaven, not hell
We needn't be under his spell

Believe in the power of love
That comes from the heaven above
A saviour from heaven, not hell
We needn't be under his spell
10. Children of the Sun (4:20)
One lonely day in the city
One lonely day in town
It seems like there`s no pity
There`s coldness all around
I`m in the wrong direction
I dreamt that no one cares
And there`s a strong selection
It`s time to be aware
I`m feeling so bare
Children of the sun
Shine your light down here
There`s a shadow falling
Shows our darkest fears
In a world of wonders
That we knew before
Lead us from the darkness
To an open door

We all need conversation
Somebody break the ice
Lead us from isolation
And give us good advice
That shows us all the blindness
And shows us your disgust
We are losing hold of kindness
It`s something we can bust
You`re all we can trust

Children of the sun
Shine your light down here
There`s a shadow falling
Shows our darkest fears
In a world of wonders
That we knew before
Lead us from the darkness
To an open door

I want to fly away
I`m fine since we are free
We see the light of the day
Save us from misery
We`ve got the right direction
We now know that you care
And of your grand affection
We all should be aware

Children of the sun
Shine your light down here
There`s a shadow falling
Shows our darkest fears
In a world of wonders
That we knew before
Lead us from the darkness
To an open door
11. Just for a Moment (4:05)
Look me in the eyes there's something to regret
We don't know how to go ahead
Close the door to keep out the light
Don't deny yourself this simple right

Something in the air, something we don't know
Is is just a shelter to hide us from the flow?

Just for a moment, we let the children die
If there's a reason, noone knows just why
Just for a moment we see it on tv
If there's a reason, it's not the one for me

Something's in the air and if we only could take care
A thousand questions and we need to be aware
Take the easy way cause noone's got to know
Are we too gutless to revolt against the flow?

Just for a moment, we let the children die
If there's a reason, noone knows just why
Just for a moment we see it on tv
If there's a reason, it's not the one for me

On and on, the thought goes round in my mind
On and on, is this a part of the destiny of mankind?

Just for a moment, we let the children die
If there's a reason, noone knows just why
Just for a moment we see it on tv
If there's a reason, it's not the one for me
