Dark Assault Lyrics

Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Never Say Die (5:32)
[Words & Music by Sielck]

[Like the Jaws of Hell the burning gate glows in unholy light. What horror lies beyond this rip in the continuum? The crewmen know that it is not likely to return, but never say die...]

I am your leader
I'm in command
The fate of all my followers
Lies in my hand

The burdon of what is right or wrong
Decisions have to be made
I have to take you all
Inside this burning gate

Will we ever come back
Follow me now
We will attack

Never say die
On wings of hope we'll fly
Never surrender
No never - never say die
Dragons of light
We're leaving tonight
The wings of hope bring us high
Never say die

Fighters are launching up into the sky
On fire they ride
Goddess of fate
Guide and protect us tonight

Into darkness and shadow
So far beyond
Oh, I don't know
If there will be tomorrow

Never say die...

Warriors hear my call
The Evil has to fall

[SOLO Piet - Kai - Piet - Kai - both]

Will we ever come back
We're going beyond
Follow me now
We will attack
Never say die...

Never say - never say - never say die!
2. Seek And Destroy (3:45)
[Words & Music by Sielck]

[Beyond the gate lies a universe of darkness and decay. In millions of years the Shadow has extincted and exploited this entity almost completely, and so they are questing for new hunting grounds. It is necessary to find and dis-able the gate, so the mission is to seek and destroy.]

Exploitation - Infestation
Life's ectincted - Stars eclipted
No light in the black

Dark encounter - Alien frontier
Suicide mission - Sacrified
We'll never come back

Kill - we came to kill the night
We're the warriors of light
Fight - we'll fight the evil force
We gonna get to the source

Seek and destroy
Into the shadow we ride
Riding side by side
Seek and destroy
Defiant we'll attack
Seek and destroy
The center of the black

Termination - Extirepation
Grim incursion - fulfilling the mission
By fire and sword
Hell - we're hiding underground
To Hell we are bound
Die - until the final breath
We ride in defiance of death

Seek and destroy...

[Solo Kai - Solo Piet]

Black will be tainted by blazing red
The forces of darkness will burn
We gonna get to the center tonight
And we shall never return
Seek and destroy...

Riding out to seek and destroy!
3. Solar Wings (4:33)
[Music by Hansen/Sielck; Words by Hansen]

[OK... We could make up a weird explanation of how the lyrics fit into the concept. Fact is they just don't! But we liked the particular sound of the words so much, that we decided to keep them like this anyway...]

Do you believe in the god with a twisted eye
Do you believe in hell and what's below
Facing the man with the blade and an evil smile
The innocence of madness seems to grow

And now you stand and stare and wonder
Can you believe in what you see
Is there a place beyond the suffering
If not for you, there's one for me

I'm high, I ride on Solar Wings
I'm riding, ohoo
I'm free, I ride on Solar Wings
'cause I'm riding... on... Solar Wings

A hundred years I'm riding on
I've seen the madness down below
A million miles I'm riding strong
My destination is unknown
I'm leaving from insanity
I don't believe in destiny
I'm waiting for my sanctuary
If not for you, there?s one for me

I'm high, I ride on Solar Wings
I'm riding, ohoo
I'm free, I ride on Solar Wings
'cause I'm riding... on... Solar Wings

[Solo]

This is the afterlife, it fills me with desire
I'm riding high, I ride into the fire

I'm high, I ride on Solar Wings
I'm riding, ohoo
I'm free, I ride on Solar Wings
'cause I'm riding... on... Solar Wings
4. I've Been To Hell (4:05)
[Music by Eckert/Sielck; Words by Sielck]

[The almost perfect extinction of the human race during the savior-war has pushed the bio-unit to the edge. In deep depression, driven away from home and in the soli-tude of deep space this poor soul has seen Hell...]

I saw my children from up in the sky
Bleeding and sentenced to die
Devastation and Termination
I've been your angel of death
Watching unmoved
I've been awaiting your final breath

Children forgive me
For I've been so wrong
Fate took revenge
On all I have done

I've been to Hell
I've seen the fires burning
Oh, I saw Hell
Demons I heard you calling
So many years I've been out there alone
Broken and scared to the bone
Out in the dark
Sorrow and grief possessed my heart

Out of control
In this deadly machine
Innocent victims
Are haunting my dreams

I've been to Hell...

Rage
Agony
Endless pain
I'll never be the same

[Solo by Piet]

Castaway
Today
Light years away from home
Blood on my hands
I must redeem
I will repent

No more repoungance between the machine
And my tortured mind
Together we're strong - now we are one
One of a kind

I've been to Hell...

To Hell I have been to pay for my sin
But no more I'll burn - I shall return

Demons of darkness
You've been calling me
But I'm clear in my mind now
And I'm on my way and I am free
5. Dragons Rising (6:24)
[Words & Music by Sielck]

During the savior war the sleeper from ancient Atlantis was leading the battle - today he cannot cope with the new world. Isolated and lonely he fades away day by day. But the thread of the Shadow brings him back to life. Once again he shall lead the battle... so the Dragon is rising.]

When I look at tomorrow
Who will I be
What will I find
Seems I'm drowning in sorrow
Everything changes
My life's redefined

When I look at tomorrow
Where will I go
What will I see
Seems I'm stuck in this hollow
Stuck in this heep, this heep of debries

Ohh, there's a pain
Deep down inside of me
Ohh, I don't know
What is my destiny

I've been the Dragon and once I've been strong
Look at me what I've become
Now I see
A Dragon again I must be
I must regain what I've lost long ago
The fires inside me still glow
To the skies
The Dragon again will arise

When I look at tomorrow
I will find
My own peace of mind
I shall leave all my sorrow
The road to myself I will follow

I'm on my way
To meet my destiny
I shall overcome
The pain deep inside of me

I've been the Dragon...

[Solo Piet]

I killed the demons
They haunt me no more
I'm loaded and charged to the core
Unholy poison was
Depraiving my soul
Now I am back in control
Dragon arise!

[Solo Piet]

I'm on my way...

I've been the Dragon...
6. Predators (3:54)
[Words & Music by Sielck]

[Hey you shadow bastards! We'll blow your asses out of space and time! Understand?]

They came to take our land and lifes
To terminate our race
All across the galaxy
They leave a deadly trace

Emerged from Hell - an evil spell
The universe is cursed
They came to please and satisfy
Their everlasting thirst

We will stand
Together til the end
Into the fire we will ride

Predators - on the hunt for prey
Predators - come to make our day

You gonna pay

We warn you now
You things up there
It's time to understand
We'll blow you into nothingness
Whatever you may send

We will stand...

Predators - on the hunt for prey...

[Solo Piesel]

Onto the battlefield
Onto the firing line
We gonna blow your asses
Out of space and time
Yeah!

Predators - on the hunt for prey...

You gonna pay - some day
7. Made Of Metal (6:58)
[Words & Music by Sielck]

[Bio-unit and machine are no longer fighting each other. They are one of a kind, a unique lifeform of man and machine. And so the Savior will return to protect and serve his children...]

Out in the void of the vast
Throughout the torrents of time
Millenniums I had to outlast
Alone in this heart of mine

Built and designed to obey
To keep man alive
Oh, I have failed
Now they struggle to survive

Forever free
Free from the split in my mind
Now I can see
My eyes have been blind
The way of the ways - the line of the lines
My destiny once and for all
Oh Atlantis, I hear your call

I am the one - you are the ones
I will protect you - my brothers and sons
I have returned - to fight this battle
I am the savior - my heart is made
Made of metal

A shadow from somewhere beyond
Is reaching out its claw
Twisting the rays of the sun
My children you ain't gonna fall

I'll raise my blade
The time for reprisal is here
It's not too late
The savior is here
The ancient machine - a million lifes' dream
Protect and serve you all
Oh Atlantis, I hear your call

I am the one - you are the ones...

[Solo Piet]

Forever free...

I am the one - you are the ones...
8. Firing The Guns (4:42)
[Music by Eckert/Sielck · Words by Sielck]

[The battle rages and once again mankind is facing war.]

Infuriated - electrified
Grim and relentless they ride
Fighters are launching

Onto the stars versing the shadows
Armed and ready to strike
Starwings engaging
The battle is raging

Fires in the sky
Prepared to die - no time to sigh
Thunder roars
Ready to course with no remorse

Firing the guns - explode and reload
Firing the guns - relentless and cold
Time to strike back
Under attack

They're thrusting their way
Throughout the rows
Again man's in the throws
The throws of war
We've seen it before

The world's under fire
The flames burning higher
The Dark must not come to the throne
Man will fight
With all its might

Dragons of light
Infernal ride - defeat the night
Starwings engage
Ready to course with no remorse

Firing the guns...

Fighting in this dreadful war? what is it all good for
In the battle against the Black - there ain't no turning back
I am a warrior, still I'm strong
I'll raise my blade to carry on - carry on

[Solo Kai]

Fires in the sky...

Firing the guns...
9. Eye Of The World (5:18)
[Words & Music by Sielck]

[The Iron Savior has returned to Earth and it seems that the fable will turn.]

Travelling the stars out in the cold
Out on the quest for the old
You had to leave
So don't come to grief

You couldn't see what is right or wrong
Atlantis seemed to be gone
So you attacked
The ones to protect

Out of control
You've been pounding the world
Seems now the tables have turned

Eye of the world - of the world
Back to defend
Your ancient land
Eye of the world
Back from the past
Back to save us at last

Guarding or star, giving us hope
For man you will cope
Now you can see
Who is the enemy

From the abyss
It's the savior's return
Seems now the tables will turn

Eye of the world...
Solo Piet - Kai - Piet - Kai

Mighty machine
Set us free from the night
Be our guiding light
There is a star
Rising up in the sky
We hold your banner high

From the abyss...

Eye of the world...

Eye of the world
Save us
The tables will turn
Eye of the world
Save us
The shadow will burn
Eye of the world
10. Back Into The Light (5:52)
[Words & Music by Sielck]

[The Dark Empire has been defeated. The home world of Shadow is burning in nuclear fire and it is only a question of time for the gate to collapse. Will the crew get back to the gate in time... or will they remain in this dying universe of the Black?]

Thrown into a world
Where night is ruling day
Where nothing will remain
Existence will decay

The hope of despair
Deep inside our heart
Brought us to the lair
The center of the Dark

Strange and unknown hemisphere
A mission to fulfill
Evil will await us there
We're prepared to kill

Deep inside the emptiness
What to come, to find
Right into the black abyss
Leaving all behind

The stars are black beyond the gate
A wasteland
We must destroy it
For man's sake

Once in a while
I fade into a dream
Skies of blue
And meadows of green

Lost in the void
Vanished from our entity
Lost in the void
Cursed to remain in infinity

Out into unknown
A road of no return
To find the Shadow's throne
The Dark ones have to burn

Bold and brave we made our way
In eternal night
We won't let us led astray
We shall return to the light

The stars are black beyond the gate...

Once in a while...

Lost in the void...

[Solo Kai/Piet]

Strange and unknown hemisphere
Our mission is fulfilled
Evil has been waiting there
Ohh, and we have killed
Deep inside the emptiness
The gate we had to find
Out of the black abyss
Leaving all behind

Back from the void
Back into our entity
Back from the void
Shadow remain in infinity

Leaving all behind
Back into the light
11. After The War (6:18)
[Music by Eckert/Sielck · Words by Eckert/Sielck]

[The war is over and the warrior returns to where he belongs...]

[Jan:]
I saw the shadow decline
In another world, another time
Reflecting battles full of fear
So far away from home
Death has been near

[Piet:]
I fought for liberty and faith
For survival of our race
The toll of blood it has been high
The dead will never see again
The sun up in the sky

[Both:]
I will return
Return to where I belong
Where I belong
I will be
Be with you after this war
After this war

[Jan:]
What I saw beyond the gate
Eternal darkness - our fate
In everlasting night
Deserted and destroyed
An empire without light

[Piet:]
The flame of hope kept me alive
The iron will survive
I did the things I had to do
And in my very soul
I've always been with you

[Both:]
I will return...

I had to leave it all behind
On my way to the other side
What to find ?

I had to go
Into the unknown
Through all my fear
You have been here
Here in my heart

[Solo Piet]

I will return...
Ohh, after the war
