1. Olympus Rising (1:32)
Instrumental
2. Thunderbolt (3:59)
Cerberus in the underworld guards the gates of hell
Protects the world of Hades
Where the dead must dwell
The gods look down in anger on this wicked land
The battle of the Titans will be the final stand

Unleash the gods of war
Thunderbolt, father of the sky
Thunderbolt, the gods have sent a sign

Zeus is in the heavens watches from the sky
The gods are on Olympus waiting for a sign
The Kraken lies below them, titan of the sea
Coming for Poseidon to set the chaos free

Unleash the gods of war
Thunderbolt, father of the sky
Thunderbolt, the gods have sent a sign
Thunderbolt, crashing from the sky
Thunderbolt, hear the heavens cry

Master of the heavens, ruler of the sky
Homer writes the Odyssey, about the gods on high
Ancient Greek mythology tells the tale of spite and greed
The vanity that comes through power never should succeed

Unleash the gods of war

Thunderbolt, father of the sky
Thunderbolt, the gods have sent a sign
Thunderbolt, tearing cross the sky
Thunderbolt, hear the heavens cry
3. The Secret of Flight (5:02)
The legend tells of Icarus
Who flew too close towards the sun
DaVinci drew the plans for flight
But never saw his work begun

You'll find the answers
The answers riding on the wind

Man has always looked towards the sky
And dreamed of one day learning how to fly
To soar just like an eagle out of sight
They're searching for the secret
The secret of flight

On the fields the brothers Wright
Wait to launch their maiden flight
Shape the wings, the air will split
The different pressure gives the lift

You seek the knowledge
The knowledge hidden in the clouds

Man has always looked towards the sky
And dreamed of one day learning how to fly
To soar just like an eagle out of sight
They're searching for the secret
The secret of flight

The secret of flight

Through the wars the race went on
To build the planes to drop the bomb
The jet age came at the speed of sound
Einstein's theory breaking the ground

Look for the truth
The truth of how the birds can fly

Man has always looked towards the sky
And dreamed of one day learning how to fly
To soar just like an eagle out of sight
They're searching for the secret
The secret of flight

Man has always looked towards the sky (The secret of flight)
And dreamed of one day learning how to fly (The secret of flight)
To soar just like an eagle out of sight (The secret of flight)
They're searching for the secret
The secret of flight
The secret of flight
The secret of flight
The secret of flight
4. Nosferatu (The Vampires Waltz) (5:00)
The mighty ship lies broken on the rocks
The crew lay dead their bodies rot
A wooden coffin washed up on the shore
They drag it to the abbey steps
Buried there and laid to rest
But soon the evil curse will rise again
Bring the cross and holy water
Pray to God to stop the slaughter

Nosferatu creature of the night
Nosferatu darkness kills the light

Underneath a blood red moon
Darkness calls the night comes soon
He rises from the grave to kill again
Bar the gates and windows shut
Turn away don't even look
The Devil's seed is hunting for the prey
Take the vow before the alter
Trust in God to stop the slaughter

Nosferatu creature of the night
Nosferatu darkness kills the light
Beneath the abbey vaults we dance the vampire's waltz

Lonely streets the village sleeps
In the darkness evil creeps
The smell of death lies heavy on the air
A lonely soul just walking home
She has the sense she's not alone
With a deadly stare she falls beneath his will
Bring the cross and holy water
Pray to God to end the slaughter

Nosferatu creature of the night
Nosferatu darkness kills the light
5. They Played Rock and Roll (3:39)
When the bomber flew
It was '79
Make no mistake: it was their time
Living fast and free
The only way to be
The word was on the street: they were the boys to beat

And they played Rock and Roll, they played Rock and Roll

They took no sleep
The tour rolled on
To Hammersmith, their battle song
Everything over the top
Giving it all till you drop
Adrenaline, leather and sweat
No one will ever forget

They played Rock and Roll, they played Rock and Roll

Dealing the ace
Releasing the power
The 80's were hear
This was the hour
Decibels crushing your brain, the closer you get to the pain
Night after night on the run, falling asleep with the sun

Bass like thunder
Drums of steel
Guitars of fury
With lightning feel
Living fast and free
The only way to be
The word was on the street: they were the boys to beat

And they played Rock and Roll, they played Rock and Roll
6. Predator (3:17)
Clandestine hunter top of the food chain
Everything fears you strike like a hurricane
Stalking your prey using your senses
Coiled like a spring there are no defences

Run for your lives
There's no escape
From the predator
The predator

Silent and deadly attack with no warning
Pick out the weakest the sick and the fawning
Keep to the shadows stealth is your weapon
Nothing survives your naked aggression

Run for your lives
There's no escape
From the predator
The predator

Natural born killers never found wanting
Search for the victim programmed for hunting
Learning from birth honing their skill
There's no hesitation in for the kill

Run for your lives
There's no escape
From the predator
The predator
7. Sons of Odin (5:22)
You sailed across the Seven Seas
You brought the mighty to their knees
Sons of Odin, a warrior creed
Trained from birth for strength and speed
The greatest sailors of their time
Across the world your paths entwined
You conquered lands with might and dare
You sowed the seeds and settled there

Take your sword and end my life
I'm born to die in battles fight
Remember me, my deeds of valour
I'll sit with kings in God's Valhalla

Your bloodline lives through kings and queens
A warrior clan with distant dreams
You came and stayed to rule the land
From the frozen North you made your stand
Your craftsmen skilled in steel and wood
The beauty now is understood
Gold and silver the work of gods
You rose above against the odds

Take your sword and end my life
I'm born to die in battles fight
Remember me, my deeds of valour
I'll sit with kings in God's Valhalla

Raiders from the North you ventured far
Guided by the burning northern star
You were searching for a fertile life
You found it here beyond the ice

Take your sword and end my life
I'm born to die in battles fight
Remember me, my deeds of valour
I'll sit with kings in God's Valhalla
8. Sniper (3:36)
Mark the target, take it slow
Don't make a sound, let no one know
Where you lie and hide from view
Through the scope your aim is true
Crosshairs mark the deadly spot
Pull the trigger, take the shot

Sniper! Never asks for reasons why
Sniper! Let the bullet fly

Check the sights, read the wind
Take your time, you're disciplined
Squeeze the trigger nice and smooth
No sudden shock, no sudden move
Keep your calm the patient one
See the kill the job is done

Sniper! Never ask the reason why
Sniper! Let the bullets fly

Deadly fire towards the kill
No sentiment, you know the drill
Highly trained you are the best
Super marksman you passed the test
Crosshairs mark the deadly spot
Now squeeze the trigger and take that shot

Sniper! Never asks the reason why
Sniper! Let the bullets fly

Mark the target, take it slow
Don't make a sound, let no one know
Where you lie and hide from view
Through the scope your aim is true
Crosshairs mark the deadly spot
Pull the trigger, take the shot

Sniper! He never asks the reason why
Sniper! Let the bullet fly
Sniper! You're dead before you hit the ground
Sniper! Gone without a sound
9. A Wizard's Tale (3:52)
There's a place called Camelot
In a land that time forgot
Where lived a wizard the greatest of his time
He used his magic for the good
Defeating evil where he could

Cast the spell make the potions
From the earth healing lotions
Wand and staff wield the magic
Mystic lands dreams fantastic

Dreams fantastic

Enchanter of the royal court
The king and queen's sole consort
He never asked for favour or reward
But behind his back were jealous tongues
The king was old, he had no sons

Cast the spell make the potions
From the earth healing lotions
Wand and staff wield the magic
Mystic lands dreams fantastic

Wield the magic

The word went out across the land
Be you noble or lowly man
Free the sword, be the chosen one

But the wizard had a secret plan
To stop the knights from taking land
They need the sword to claim the jewelled crown
Excalibur plunged into the stone
Whoever frees it claims the throne

Cast the spell make the potions
From the earth healing lotions
Wand and staff wield the magic
Mystic lands dreams fantastic

Wield the magic
10. Speed Merchants (3:47)
Turn the wheel start the drift on the turn make the shift
Spinning wheels burning rubber
Hear the engine scream
Revving high reach the limit
Turbocharged born to live it
On the edge give it more listen to the engine roar

Ram the throttle down
Listen to the sound
Speed merchants
Take it to the limit
Speed merchants
Loving every minute

Choose the cars start the fight
Who's the fastest from the lights
Acceleration pure and sweet ram the pedal down
Hit the red line hear the sound
Hold your nerve, you're gaining ground
Charging fast across the line
Hit the brakes and check the time

Screaming through the gears
It's music to your ears
Speed merchants
Take it to the limit
Speed merchants
Loving every minute
Speed merchants
Ram the throttle down
Speed merchants
Don't you love the sound?

On the track through twist and turn
Tyres squeal and rubber burns
Who's the fastest on the day?
It's way too close to call
Run the slow mo, take the shot
Motor screaming running hot
Every second like an hour
Petrol heads and raw horse power

Ram the throttle down
Don't you love the sound?
Speed merchants
Take it to the limit
Speed merchants
Loving every minute
Speed merchants
Turn the wheel and spin it
Speed merchants
Loving every minute
11. Roadie's Song (3:31)
An empty space, a cold dark room
You say hello and look for food
The coffees strong to get you there
The clock is ticking no time to spare
Rig the lights, build the sound
Run the cables, check the ground
Haul the gear, set the stage
It's never easy to earn our wage

16 beds inside the bus
Step inside be one of us
A roadie's life is what we choose
And the wheels keep rolling on

7 nights, 7 days hauling gear this is our way
Another town it never stops
Keep moving on till you're fit to drop
We fall asleep to the sound of the road
On through the night we move the load
It's like a family with ups and downs
But in the end it all calms down

16 beds inside the bus
Step inside be one of us
A roadie's life is what we choose
And the wheels keep rolling on

A gypsy's way is what they choose
Not for all but a chosen few
They sacrifice a normal life
To tour the world with no end in sight
They live their life to keep the faith
To get tile band up on the stage
Move the gear, rig the lights
Check the sound, this is their life

16 beds inside the bus
It's where we live be one of us
A roadie's life is what we choose
And the wheels keep rolling on

A roadie's life is what they choose
And the wheels keep rolling on
12. Nosferatu (Raw Version) (5:01)
A mighty ship lies on the rocks
The crew lay dead their bodies rot
A wooden coffin washed up on the shore
They drag it to the abbey steps
Buried there and laid to rest
But soon the evil curse will rise again
Bring the cross and holy water
Pray to God to stop the slaughter

Nosferatu, creature of the night
Nosferatu, darkness kills the light

Underneath a blood red moon
Darkness calls, the night comes soon
He rises from the grave to kill again
Bar the gates and windows shut
Turn away don't even look
The Devil's seed is hunting for the prey

Take the vow before the alter
Trust in God to stop the slaughter

Nosferatu, creature of the night
Nosferatu, darkness kills the light

Beneath the abbey vaults
We dance the vampire's waltz

Lonely streets the village sleeps
In the darkness evil creeps
The smell of death lies heavy on the air
A lonely soul just walking home
She has the sense she's not alone
With a deadly stare she falls beneath his will

Bring the cross and holy water
Pray to God to end the slaughter

Nosferatu, creature of the night
Nosferatu, darkness kills the light
Nosferatu, creature of the night
Nosferatu, darkness kills the light
