1. Phantom Flight (5:27)
A hidden nightmare
Turned reality one day
Falling from the sky
The gods came out to play

Disguised by war machines
We could not see their face
A firestorm of death revealed
Contempt for the human race

Too advanced to fight
Though heaven knows we tried
Ten thousand flew
Into the stratosphere to die

Then they rose and took flight
Like birds of prey
They soared into the night
Who knew that men
Could fly so high
As the final phantom flight

The battle raged above
We watched with baited breath
A flaming ballet
To the rhythm of death

With a mad discovery
Dug from the Earth’s archives
The phantoms took a chance
And gambled with their lives

Blazing through their defenses
A raging onslaught
Ancient Earth technology
Cloaked heroes as they fought

We watched them rise and take flight
Heavenward they soared into the night
Who knew that men
Could fly so high
As the final phantom flight

Against all reason
Against the odds
We dared to stand
Against the gods

We tore down walls
So we could see
United by humanity
2. Lifebringer (5:37)
Wandering in exile
The warriors of light
Clinging to their honor
Though justice was denied

The era of the tyrant
Who burned all hope away
He rode on a tide of fear and hate
To lead us all astray

Deliver us
Bring us the blade

Lifebringer
With starlight it was made
Only the worthy can wield the blessed blade
A quest to find the weapon forged beyond the stars
Lifebringer
It could save us all

Worshipers and refugees
Of different gods and paths
Victims of the weak and blind
Fed on the tyrants wrath

Shining like the dawn
Warriors of light amassed
Sword to bring peace to the earth
Found Lifebringer at last

Deliver us
Bring us the blade

Lifebringer
With starlight it was made
Only the worthy can wield the blessed blade
A quest to find the weapon forged beyond the stars
Lifebringer
It could save us all

Lords of Light
Bring me the blade

Lifebringer
With starlight it was made
Only the worthy can wield the blessed blade
A quest to find the weapon forged beyond the stars
Lifebringer
It could save us all
3. Atlacatl (5:13)
Through the sea of salt and darkness
Came a legion with a cause
Bringing iron, steel and gunfire
And the white man’s twisted laws

With nobility and civility
Europe would see this land controlled
Demanding obedience
Our gods and our gold
Our whole world would be sold

But in the highest hottest mountains
We resisted, we rebelled
We forged a revolution
To resist destroy this foreign hell

There lived a chieftain
Who would never be tamed

Led by this mighty warrior
Both predator and man
We slaughtered foolish foreign men
Who did not know the land

And though he’s long since dead
His legend still remains

The blood of the gods
In the flesh of a man
With a soul too ancient to burn
We must always remember
The strength and the call
Of the blood of the gods
That lives on in us all
Blood of the gods
That lives on in us all

As the white man’s guns
And glistening steel
Cut through our shields
Our chieftain saw a future
That their butchery revealed

An unstoppable invasion
Blood rained from the sky

So he scaled a great volcano
And rather than be shamed
Atlacatl swore to the gods
And dove into the flames

A searing death preferred
To the weight of their chains

The blood of the gods
In the flesh of a man
With a soul too ancient to burn
We must always remember
The strength and the call
Of the blood of the gods
That lives on in us all
Blood of the gods
That lives on in us all

Transformed by sacrifice
His spirit burned into memory
A symbol of vengeance
Pride and destiny
We will embrace our legacy

Atlacatl
Atlacatl
The blood of the gods
In the flesh of a man
Atlacatl
The blood of the gods
In the flesh of a man
It’s the blood of the gods
That lives on in us all
Atlacatl
4. The Crossroads Deal (1:10)
Instrumental
5. It Was Metal (4:34)
In the beginning
When all was black
An explosion cracked the sky
Volcanoes erupted
The Earth was corrupted
By the sound that terrifies

From the chaos came savage man
To feast on the flesh
Of the beasts he slew
And as the cavemen discovered
The fire and the thunder
The strongest of them knew

It was metal
Heavy metal
And it’s been here
Since time began
Electrifying and unifying
A sonic gift to man

In 1913
The Rite of Spring symphony
Made the crowd lose control
Then the blues man sealed
The crossroads deal
With the devil for his soul
To bring us rock ‘n’ roll
And now you can hear it pounding
There’s joy in the screams
We tell our stories
With ear-splitting glory
Metal reigns supreme

It was metal
Heavy metal
And it’s been here
Since time began
Electrifying and unifying
A sonic gift to man
It was metal

We strike down the unbelievers
Defenders heed the call
Demons tremble
When the legion assembles
We let the hammer fall

It was metal
Heavy metal
And it’s been here
Since time began
It’s electrifying
It’s unifying
The sound that rules the land
It was metal
Heavy metal
It was metal
Heavy metal
It was metal
Heavy metal
6. Obsidian & Gold (Desdinova Returns) (9:35)
Look to the sky
When Saturn looms
Exalted in the seventh sign
Listen for the call
When reality and dreamworld align

Faith will never die
Winter comes and leaves will fall
But roots grow stronger still
Unseen among you all

He will bring the trials
Some will rise and some will burn
So we bide our time
Until the traveler returns

The artifact is found
The call goes out on coded wire
To meet on sacred ground
The chosen few who now conspire

Unseal the chamber
Shake off the dust of centuries
The sign of Kronos burns
Reactivate the machinery

Hold the symbol high
None can deny the power

Ride into the night
When the starlight gleams
On chrome and steel
The four winds drive you on
To tropic lands
With tyranny at hand
The ancient from stories told
Reflected in obsidian and gold

The flaming telepaths
Indoctrinating with their minds
Project the aftermath
Of the mutation of all mankind

Restless angels are riding still
Above the cliffs at Dead Man’s Curve
Call back the red and the black
The spectral riders are bound to serve

Hold the symbol high
None can deny the power

Ride into the night
When the starlight gleams
On chrome and steel
The four winds drive you on
To tropic lands
With tyranny at hand
The ancient ones from stories told
Reflected in obsidian and gold

Listening for the voices
That we never hear
From lightyears away
Were they ever heard
Just a single word

Steadfast and hale
Time can’t assail
Those temples that live
In our hearts forever

From rivers of time
Bearing the sign
Desdinova returns
So close your eyes and surrender
To the tyranny of our certainty
Daughters and sons
We bring the reign
Of the invisible ones

Hold the symbol high
None can deny the power

Ride into the night
When starlight gleams
On chrome and steel
The four winds drive you on
To tropic lands
With tyranny at hand
The ancient ones from stories told
Reflected in obsidian and gold
7. Second Lives (5:27)
I hear the dead
So why can’t I hear you now

Waiting for a brand new day
When the fear has gone away
Between two dreams

There’s a doorway to the past
Life is too beautiful to last
And it’s tearing at the seems

Will this longing for your touch solidify
Or does love disappear when you die

Speak the language of the soul
I understand my role
It’s a lifetime of knowing what’s real
Take my hand now if you can
No one else can understand
What it’s like when you can see
But cannot feel

Burning eyes glowing bright
I’d give the world to you
‘til the end of our days

Voices echo through the night
Searching for someone
To guide them on their way

Are we destined to wander
Through our second lives
Or does it even matter in the end
Tell me why

Speak the language of the soul
I understand my role
It’s a lifetime of knowing what’s real
Take my hand now if you can
No one else can understand
What it’s like when you can see
But cannot feel

I hear the dead
So speak to me now

Will this longing for your touch solidify
Or does love disappear when you die

Speak the language of the soul
I understand my role
It’s a lifetime of knowing what’s real
Take my hand now if you can
No one else can understand
What it’s like when you can see
But cannot feel
I see but cannot feel
8. Els Segadors (The Reapers) (4:10)
Now is the time reapers
You can see our vengeance is nigh
So when June comes again
Sharpen your blades
Raise them high

Raise up your scythes (raise up)
Reap the glory of the land

And the enemy will tremble
When they see our symbols raised
Just as we cut the golden ears of wheat
Now they will see us cut our chains

Raise up your scythes (raise up)
Defenders of the land

Catalunya triumfant
Our land will be bountiful again
So destroy the enemy
Their conceit has sentenced them to death
Raise up your scythes
Raise up your scythes
Raise up your scythes
Defenders of the land
Raise up your scythes

Catalunya triomfant,
Tornarà a ser rica i plena
Endarrera aquesta gent
Tan ufana i tan superba
Bon cop de falç
Bon cop de falç
Raise up your scythes
Defenders of the land

Catalunya triumfant
Our land will be bountiful again
So destroy the enemy
Their conceit has sentenced them to death
Raise up your scythes (raise up)
Raise up your scythes (raise up)
Raise up your scythes
Defenders of the land
9. Tomyris (7:22)
From the steppes of Scythia
Came a righteous queen
With sword in hand
She rode beside her men
Through wild and unforgiving lands

Yet to the west the king
Cyrus the Great thought that he could lay claim
To one who would not shackle herself
To any man despite his name

How could he know
That the queen he desired
Would never submit
Never kneel before his throne

Tomyris reigned
A woman of strength and power
Warrior queen of the Massagetae
No man was her equal
Who could ever rule beside her
Tomyris
May all men
May all men know

Cyrus desired her land
He lay a trap and captured her son
The prince was dead by dawn
The war between them had just begun

I swear by the sun
The sovereign lord
I will give you your fill of blood

Tomyris lead
An army of mighty warriors
For her they fought and killed and bled
No man could defeat her
How could one stand beside her
Tomyris
Her power would be known

Defeated by her army
Cyrus the Great dead at her feet
His skull the final trophy
Drowned in human blood

His army dead
See now I fulfill my threat
You have had your fill of blood she said

Tomyris reigned
A woman of strength and power
Warrior queen of the Massagetae
No man was her equal
Who could ever rule beside her
Tomyris
May all men
May all men know
10. Charles II (4:30)
Miss Nancy was a'walking down
The graveyard in her best
And found a pile of stones unturned
Where Mike was laid to rest

She cried for help
A boy answered to her cry
"It's just his skull that's missing, miss”
"So let me tell you why"

Where did he go?
Where did all those skulls go?

The King is drinking Irish bones
To live another day
It's science for a richer blood
Who can afford to pay

And if you've got a shovel
And a stomach for the crime
Good King Charles the Second
Has a shilling for your time

And Nancy found more graves disturbed
Than she could hope the count
Bodies lay there headless
A startling amount

"And when the savior comes"
"To raise them from the dead”
"How will Jesus be their guide
"If they don't have a head?"

How could they rise?
How can they rise without heads?

The King is drinking Irish bones
To live another day
It's science for a richer blood
Who can afford to pay

And if you've got a shovel
And a stomach for the crime
Good King Charles the Second
Has a shilling for your time

But all the Irish skulls he drank
Could not save him from death
And so the good king died
With bones upon his breath

And if he ever met the men
Whose corpses he befell
We will never know, but pray
They kick his ass in hell

We will kick his ass in hell!

The King is drinking Irish bones
To live another day
It's science for a richer blood
Who can afford to pay

You've got a shovel
And a stomach for the crime
Good King Charles the Second
Has a shilling for your time
11. Fortress of the Future Race (4:58)
Death lasers fill the sky
Beware troopers in black
Orders are clear
Kill on command
Destroy
Don’t look back

Travel across time
Change the world you know
What you have will never last
And you’ve no place to go

Don’t cry for mercy
Your weapons are useless and weak
We know your secrets
We know the truth
Silence
You do not speak

The fortress of the future race
Your time has come to an end
Don’t try to run
You have been warned

We’ve lost all patience
Stand and be brave if you must
The leaders of your world have run
Go find them
Bring them to us

We will take control
And knowledge is our prize
Building our utopia
There is no compromise

Cities ablaze
Death all around
Anarchy everywhere
Now we must go back to our time
Gone into thin air

The fortress of the future race
Your time has come to an end
Don’t try to run
You have been warned

We are the future
We control the past
The final destiny
Eternity is ours

The fortress of the future race
Your time has come to an end
The fortress of the future race
Invincible once again
Don’t try to run
You have been warned
Your time is up
Now
