Court in the Act Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. Into The Fire (1:44)
2. Trial By Fire (4:18)
In 1945 the year it came to be
Their fate decided
many miles accross the sea
They told them not to fear
they couldn't be prepaired
Then came the day
that not a single soul was spared

Too late there's no escape
The Trial has begun
Down they fly
From out of the sky
Feel the radiation burn

The men of power
had nothing to fear
When the finger hits the switch
they're far away from here
Down in their sanctuary
hidding in their lair
The sorcerers of justice
will be waiting for them there

Too late there's no escape
The Trial has begun
Down they fly
From out of the sky
Feel the radiation burn

I saw the people running
through all my dreams
I heard the soldiers crying
Mother Nature screams
I saw destruction falling
from out of the sky
I heard the Wise Man calling... Why?

In 1945 the year it came to be
Their fate decided
many miles accross the sea
They told them not to fear
they couldn't be prepaired
Then came the day
that not a single soul was spared.

Too late there's no escape
The Trial has begun
Down they fly
From out of the sky
Feel the radiation burn
3. Blades Of Steel (5:16)
The Vikings they were conquerors, they sought to rule the land,
Many peaceful villages were crushed beneath their hands,
Driven by the power of Lucifer and Thor,
They pillaged and they plundered, took women for their whores,
Blades of steel.

The Vikings sailed to foreign shores, with steel at their command,
Seeking warmth and shelter, they roamed across the land,
Zandor was their leader, there's none so fearless and brave,
He'd guide them through the coming months,
Through winter they'd be safe,
Blades of Steel.

Shining sun warms the earth, autumn time has come,
People gathered in the fields, the summer's almost gone,
By the fireside, they would laugh and dance and sing,
Prepared for anything the winter months would bring,
But soon they would fall by blades of steel.

Blades of steel, ripping through the town,
Blades of steel, tearing you all down,
Blades of steel, put terror in your hearts
Blades of steel, tear the world apart.
4. No Turning Back (4:01)
Looking for a way to put me down,
I gotta stop your hanging around,
You're telling me I'm crazy, but I'm not a fool,
I don't live by the book, I don't want no rules.

Trying to make it through all the rough times,
All the way to the top, it's a tough ride,
They're all calling me mad, I've gotta prove them wrong,
I don't care what it takes, I can't wait too long.

No turning back, can't stop me now,
No turning back, so don't put me down,
No turning back, cos I told you before
No turning back, no turning back, break down the door.

What's it like at the top, it's a tough ride,
You never know who's taking your side,
Jealous people who are are causing you pain,
And there's the days when it drives you insane,
No turning back, no time for dreaming,
I love this life, I feel like screaming,
You all should know, there's a lesson for learning,
Deep in my heart, there's a flame that is burning.

Gotta keep on trying when the going's tough,
Cos you can do anythin if you want it enough,
Believe in yourself, no-one else but you,
And if you've got the guts, you can make it through.


No turning back!
5. Broken Treaties (4:44)
The white-man ravaged the frontiers,
The hunting grounds and the plains,
Their braves were slaughtered in thousands,
The blood was falling like rain,
The treaties were signed and the white-man smiled,
While twisting their knives in their backs,
The whole Indian Nation, was facing starvation,
A net of illusion, was squeezing the life from the tribes,
Their women were tortured, their bodys thrown into the flames.

The flaming arrows were flying,
And smoke rose up to the sky,
The Cavalry kept on charging,
The soldiers never asked why,
The Chiefs still believe that their people could rise,

And unite in a final attack,
The treaties were broken by white-mans's greed,
They fought for their freedom, bought with blood,
The Cherokee Nation, Shawnee and Souix,
A million war-braves, in surprise attack.
6. Break Free (5:20)
Out in the cold, you've got nowhere to run, but you're free again,
When you're alone you remember the day in your cell,
You were convicted and sentenced to life,
Your cries of "Injustice", unheard,
Locked inside, you planned your break,
Now you're free.

So you've got to run again,
You've broken your chains,
Now you've got to run, run, run.

Gotta break free!

Now that you're out, you can look fot the ones who condemned you,
Show the world that you're not just a pawn in this game,
All of their faces you see in your mind,
Your memories build up into hate,
All you've been through, gonna put them through Hell,


Break out and run, your escape has begun,
But the Law's on your ass once again,
Wanted and hunted, you know you can't hide,
So keep running as fast as you can,
You know you were innocent, you know they were wrong,
And now they've turned you into a killer,
Another wasted life now, just thrown it away,
So with their own lives you're gonna make them pay.



Gotta break free!
7. Hunt You Down (3:30)
I've had enough of your backstabbing,
I'm getting tired of your lies,
Had enough of vicious rumours,
What you've seen with your own eyes.

Be out of town before I come to get you,
Keep on running, I'll hunt you down,
Aint no time to settle my vengeance,
Don't start begging, I'll hunt you down,
Keep out of my sights, cos I'll hunt you down,
Get out of this place, I'm ready to blow,
Touch me, I'll explode in your face.

You hang around important people,
And worm your way into their lives,
They are happy cos they all trust you,
You are happy sleeping with their wives.


Can't you see, that people love you face to face,
Behind your back, they take you down and mark your name,
I believe it's time, to put you in your place,
Win or lose, in the end it's all the same.

Your name is etched upon the bullet,
Assassins watch, they know you well,
Your time is up, your days are numbered,
Prepare yourself to burn in Hell.

8. The Ritual (4:40)
9. Dark Side Of Innocence (0:56)
10. Alone In The Dock (6:24)
Now your time has come, you've got to travel away,
But where your path will lead, no man can say,
Look back on your life, hear the Mourners song,
Just your Innner Conscience betrays your wrongs,
Watch the road unfold before you,
Is this not what you thought you'd see?
Shrug away the chains that bound you,
You'll stand alone in the dark,
But still you don't feel free.

Sail away along the river,
Where the souls of dead-men moan,
Will your road go on forever,
Could they leave you here alone? ...No!

Through the white marble gates, down the dimly-lit path,
Looking over your shoulder, did you hear someone laugh?
See the bright lights ahead, they possess their own call,
Unaware that you're dead, got your back to the wall,
The Gates Of Justice now closed, hear the key in the lock,
Watch and your path will unfold, as you stand alone in the dark.

Trying to find a place to hide,
As from the bonds of life, you're freed,
Satan, laughing, creeps inside,
Attracted by your wealth and greed,
All at once, you see your jury,
All the bastards you have spurned,
The Judge's eyes ablaze with fury,
You stand alone now, feel the flames begin to burn.

You're gonna stand alone in the dark.
