prowler
remember tomorrow
flash of the blade
2 minutes to midnight
the trooper
wasted years
run to the hills
to tame a land
caught somewhere in time
wrathchild
fear of the dark
hallowed be thy name
iron maiden
running free
brave new world
prowler

by black tide

walkin' through the city
lookin' oh so pretty
i just gotta find my way
see the ladies flashin'
all their legs and lashes
i just gotta find my way

well, you see me crawlin' through the bushes
with it open wide
what ya seein' girl?
can you believe that feelin? can you believe it?
can you believe your eyes?
it's the real thing girl

got me feelin' myself and reelin' around
got me talking, girl, feel like walkin' around

remember tomorrow

by metallica

unchain the colours before my eyes,
yesterday's sorrows, tomorrow's white lies.
scan the horizon, the clouds take me higher,
i shall return from out of fire.

tears for rememberance, and tears for joy,
tears for somebody and this lonely boy.
out in the madness, the all seeing eye,
flickers above us, to light up the sky.

unchain the colours before my eyes,
yesterday's sorrows, tomorrow's white lies.
scan the horizon, the clouds take me higher,
i shall return from out of fire.

flash of the blade

by avenged sevenfold

he threw down a glove you made the mistake
of picking it up now you're gone
the choosing of guns or fighting with swords
the choice of weapons is done
he'll tear you apart as soon as you start
you know you don't have a chance.

chorus
oh...oh...fight for the honour
fight for the splendour
fight for the pleasure
oh...oh...fight for the honour
fight for the splendour
fight for your life!

ready to start the duel begins the best man wins in the end.
a lunge and a feint, a parry too late
a cut to the chest and you're down
seeing the stain then feeling the pain
feeling the sweat on your brow.

chorus

the fighting resumes, a silence looms the swordsmen move 'gainst each other
a cut and a thrust, a parry, a blow, a stab to the heart and you're down
the angel of death hears your last breath
meanwhile the reaper looks on.

chorus
oh...oh...fought the honour
fought for the splendour
fought for the pleasure
oh...oh...fought for the honour
fought for the splendour
fought to the death

2 minutes to midnight

by glamour of the kill

kill for gain or shoot to maim
but we don't need a reason
the golden goose is on the loose
and never out of season
some blackened pride still burns inside
this shell of bloody treason
here's my gun for a barrel of fun
for the love of living death.

chorus
the killer's breed or the demon's seed,
the glamour, the fortune, the pain,
go to war again, blood is freedom's stain,
but don't you pray for my soul anymore.
2 minutes to midnight
the hands that threaten doom.
2 minutes to midnight
to kill the unborn in the womb.

the blind men shout let the creatures out
we'll show the unbelievers
the napalm screams of human flames
of a prime time belsen feast...yeah!
as the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy,
we oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies.

chorus

the body bags and little rags of children torn in two
and the jellied brains of those who remain to put the finger right on you.
as the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song,
to the tune of starving millions to make a better kind of gun.

chorus

midnight...all night...

the trooper

by coheed and cambria

you'll take my life but i'll take yours too
you'll fire your musket but i'll run you through
so when you're waiting for the next attack
you'd better stand there's no turning back.

the bugle sounds and the charge begins
but on this battlefield no one wins
the smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
as i plunge on into certain death.

the horse he sweats with fear we break to run
the mighty roar of the russian guns
and as we race towards the human wall
the screams of pain as my comrades fall

we hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
and the russians fire another round
we get so near yet so far away
we won't live to fight another day.

we get so close near enough to fight
when a russian gets me in his sights
he pulls the trigger and i feel the blow
a burst of rounds take my horse below.

and as i lay there gazing at the sky
my body's numb and my throat is dry
and as i lay forgotten and alone
without a tear i draw my parting groan

wasted years

by devildriver

from the coast of gold, across the seven seas,
i'm travelling on, far and wide,
but now it seems, i'm just a stranger to myself,
and all the things i sometimes do, it isn't me but someone else.

i close my eyes, and think of home,
another city goes by, in the night,
ain't it funny how it is, you never miss it til it's gone away,
and my heart is lying there and will be til my dying day.

chorus:
so understand
don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years,
face up...make your stand,
and realise you're living in the golden years.

too much time on my hands, i got you on my mind,
can't ease this pain, so easily,
when you can't find the words to say, it's hard to make it through another day
and it makes me wanna cry, and throw my hands up to the sky.

chorus:
so understand
don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years,
face up...make your stand,
and realise you're living in the golden years.

run to the hills

by sign

white man came across the sea
brought us pain and misery
killed our tribes killed our creed
took our game for his own need

we fought him hard we fought him well
out on the plains we gave him hell
but many came too much for cree
oh will we ever be set free?

riding through dustclouds and barren wastes
galloping hard on the plains
chasing the redskins back to their holes
fighting them at their own game
murder for freedom a stab in the back
women and children and cowards attack

run to the hills run for your lives
run to the hills run for your lives

soldier blue on the barren wastes
hunting and killing their game
raping the women and wasting the men
the only good indians are tame
selling them whisky and taking their gold
enslaving the young and destroying the old

run to the hills run for your lives

to tame a land

by dream theater

he is the king of all the land
in the kingdom of the sands
of a time tomorrow.

he rules the sandworms and the fremen
in a land amongst the stars
of an age tomorrow.

he is destined to be a king
he rules over everything
on the land called planet dune.

bodywater is your life
and without it you would die
on the desert the planet dune.

without a stillsuit you would fry
on the sands so hot and dry
in a world called arrakis.

it is a land that's rich in spice
the sandriders and the "mice"
that they call the "muad'dib".

he is the kwizatz haderach.
he is born of caladan
and will take the gom jabbar.

he has the power to foresee
or to look into the past
he is the ruler of the stars

the time will come for him
to lay claim his crown,
and then the foe yes
they'll be cut down,
you'll see he'll be the
best that there's been,
messiah supreme
true leader of men,
and when the time
for judgement's at hand
don't fret he's strong
and he'll make a stand,
against evil and fire
that spreads through the land,
he has the power
to make it all end.

caught somewhere in time

by madina lake

if you had the time to lose,
an open mind and time to choose,
would you care to take a look,
or can you read me like a book?

time is always on my side,
time is always on my side.

can i tempt you, come with me,
be devil may care, fulfill your dream,
if i said i'd take you there,
would you go, would you be scared?

time is always on my side,
time is always on my side.

don't be afraid, you're safe with me,
safe as any soul can be ... honestly,
just let yourself go.

chorus:
caught somewhere in time
caught somewhere in time
caught somewhere in time ... oh oh

like a wolf in sheep's clothing,
you try to hide your deepest sins,
of all the things that you've done wrong,
and i know where you belong.

time is always on my side,
time is always on my side.

make you an offer you can't refuse,
you've only got your soul to lose...
eternally...just let yourself go!

chorus:
caught somewhere in time
caught somewhere in time
caught now in two minds!

wrathchild

by gallows

i was born into a scene of angriness and greed, and dominance and persecution.
my mother was a queen, my dad i've never seen, i was never meant to be.
and now i spend my time looking all around,
for a man that's nowhere to be found.
until i find him i'm never gonna stop searching,
i'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around.

'cos i'm a wrathchild, well i'm a wrathchild.
yeah i'm a wrathchild. i'm coming to get you, oh yeah.

say it doesn't matter ain't nothin' gonna alter the course of my destination.
i know i've got to find some serious piece of mind, or i know i'll go crazy.
but now i spend my time looking all around,
for a man that's nowhere to be found.
until i find him i'm never gonna stop searching,
i'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around.

'cos i'm a wrathchild, well i'm a wrathchild.
yeah i'm a wrathchild. i'm coming to get you, oh yeah.

fear of the dark

by fightstar

i am a man who walks alone
and when i'm walking a dark road
at night or strolling through the park

when the light begins to change
i sometimes feel a little strange
a little anxious when it's dark

fear of the dark, fear of the dark
i have constant fear that something's always near
fear of the dark, fear of the dark
i have a phobia that someone's always there

have you run your fingers down the wall
and have you felt your neck skin crawl
when you're searching for the light?
sometimes when you're scared to take a look
at the corner of the room
you've sensed that something's watching you

have you ever been alone at night
thought you heard footsteps behind
and turned around and no one's there?
and as you quicken up your pace
you find it hard to look again
because you're sure there's someone there

watching horror films the night before
debating witches and folklores
the unknown troubles on your mind
maybe your mind is playing tricks
you sense, and suddenly eyes fix
on dancing shadows from behind

fear of the dark, fear of the dark
i have constant fear that something's always near
fear of the dark, fear of the dark
i have a phobia that someone's always there

when i'm walking a dark road
i am a man who walks alone

hallowed be thy name

machine head

i'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime
reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time
cos at 5 o'clock they take me to the gallows pole
the sands of time for me are running low

when the priest comes to read me the last rites
i take a look through the bars at the last sights
of a world that has gone very wrong for me

can it be there's some sort of error
hard to stop the surmounting terror
is it really the end not some crazy dream

somebody please tell me that i'm dreaming
it's not so easy to stop from screaming
but words escape me when i try to speak
tears they flow but why am i crying
after all i am not afraid of dying
don't believe that there is never an end

as the guards march me out to the courtyard
someone calls from a cell "god be with you"
if there's a god then why has he let me die?

as i walk all my life drifts before me
and though the end is near i'm not sorry
catch my soul cos it's willing to fly away

mark my words please believe my soul lives on
please don't worry now that i have gone
i've gone beyond to see the truth

when you know that your time is close at hand
maybe then you'll begin to understand
life down there is just a strange illusion.

by trivium

running free

by year long disaster

just sixteen, a pickup truck, out of money, out of luck.
i've got nowhere to call my own, hit the gas, and here i go.

i'm running free yeah, i'm running free.
i'm running free yeah, oh i'm running free.

spent the night in an l. a. jail, and listened to the sirens wail.
they ain't got a thing on me, i'm running wild, i'm running free.

i'm running free yeah, i'm running free.
i'm running free yeah, oh i'm running free.

puller here at the bottle top, whiskey, dancing, disco hop.
now all the boys are after me, and that's the way it's gonna be.

i'm running free yeah, i'm running free.
i'm running free yeah, oh i'm running free.

brave new world

by ghostlines

dying swans twisting wings
beauty not needed here
lost my love, lost my life
in this garden of fear
i have seen many things
in a lifetime alone
mother love is no more
bring this savage back home

wilderness house of pain
makes no sense of it all
close this mind dull this brain
messiah before his fall
what you see is not real
all is lost sold your soul
in this brave new world

a brave new world
in a brave new world
a brave new world
in a brave new world

dragon kings, dying queens
where is salvation now
lost my life lost my dreams
rip the bones from my flesh
silent screams laughing here
dying to tell you the truth
you are planned you are damned
in this brave new world

a brave new world
in a brave new world
a brave new world
in a brave new world
