Track Name: Prelude
Instrumental
Track Name: Vogue
...But now we have a modern society
With things that I never like
We have some programs on TV
Which try to show what life is like

They try to show something different
They show all that they can show
And we must sit and believe in it?
Oh no, we must blow it out!

------CHORUS------

Oh what a fucking vogue
Will make a woman from a man
You think it's seems so good
But you seems like a gey

Oh what a fucking vogue
Will make a scarecrow from you
We must sit and believe in it?
Oh no, we must blow it out!
Track Name: Werewolf
The fire is falling
Rage of Gods is coming
Government is coerces
The people to win the war for freedom by the blood

One nation's desire
Not to live in fear
That someone will kill you
For the words that you said
Nothing stings like the truth

------CHORUS------

Werewolf is coming to bring you back freedom tonight
(What you fight for?)
Werewolf is coming to find who is wrong and who's right
(No way out of here)
Werewolf is coming to bring you back freedom tonight
(As you want it)
Werewolf is the only one who has power to judge
(And fight for victory)

It's your time to surrender
Last chance to be free, yeah
Repressions are stopped just
To save the gang which at this time were in power

All assholes are fighting
To win the war for nothing
It's stupid confrontation
I know, that strongest never fighting till the end

------CHORUS------

Werewolf is coming to bring you back freedom tonight
(What you fight for?)
Werewolf is coming to find who is wrong and who's right
(No way out of here)
Werewolf is coming to bring you back freedom tonight
(As you want it)
Werewolf is the only one who has power to judge
(And fight for victory)
Track Name: The Sage
From afar you have come alone
With magic in your hands
To warn us about the storm
Deep inside our minds

We were brave, we were so intrepid
When we kept our promises
When we despised the painful greed
And prayed for victory

------CHORUS------

You're the sage, you're master of knowledge
Tell me the history of world and mankind
When we will have our courage
To fight with temptation and to forget any lie

In your eyes the evil of the world
Is coming for its price
And the honour has been sold
How can we rise?

You know the legends, you know the myths
Of ancient land of woods
You've traveled long time across the seas
In search of the one who can choose

------CHORUS------

You're the sage, you're master of knowledge
Tell me the history of world and mankind
When we will have our courage
To fight with temptation and to forget any lie

Help us to stand
Show us The Promised Land
Teach us to believe
Someday we will be!

CHOIR:

All our fears are awakening
All our dreams are crumbling
Gold and oil in their veins
We'll forget our own saints

No justice, no honor
No faith in tomorrow
We will drown in
A deepest sin

(Take me away)
Track Name: Key To Eternity
Here you are looking back and pray
Only God can say what is right and what is wrong
Anyway there’s nothing you could do
Now it’s up to you to let your life go on

------CHORUS------

Turn your eyes up to the sky
A little smile will change your cry
And you will see light from above
And you will feel nothing but love

Fly away on your wings of mind
Live the past behind that’s the only way
Free yourself, make your soul be strong
Now it can’t be wrong. What else can I say?

------CHORUS------

Turn your eyes up to the sky
A little smile will change your cry
And you will see light from above
And you will feel nothing but love
Track Name: Fist Of Fury
My time has come
You make me move
You change us all, before the truth begins to beat

I gave to you
My precious life
But you don't give me to survive, I rise

It's all that you can do for the last time
We want to relax now and here all alone
So why you tempt us all for the crime-prime
We can make an end in one moment, you will drone

------CHORUS------

We got the fists of fury
They are out of control
You can run you can stroll

We got the fists of fury
When we losing our mind
You will call us a blind

And we leave our fear
And we leave our fever
Track Name: Shadow
I'm so lonely, since I was born
And now I can't be happy
I carry my own crown of thorns
Waiting for the day to lose it

Am I another kind of man?
Why they don't understand me?
I feel their laugh behind my spine
And it don't drives me crazy

Sometimes it's better to live in pain, than to be happy

------CHORUS------

I'm just a shadow in their eyes
I never lose but I'm always last
I can't choose what's a right way to me now
I'm just a shadow in their eyes
Am I a stranger in this life?
Sometimes I want to be the one like you
But now I'm just a shadow!

I'm suffering in silence
No one will talk to me
I'm so strong to die
Because I know what I want to be

But I will never desert
To this dark side of life
Maybe I'm dying alone
But it will be fair to my heart

Sometimes it's better to live in pain, than to be happy

------CHORUS------

I'm just a shadow in their eyes
I never lose but I'm always last
I can't choose what's a right way to me now
I'm just a shadow in their eyes
Am I a stranger in this life?
Sometimes I want to be the one like you
But now I'm just a shadow!

I'm just a shadow
In their eyes, in their lies, in their lives
I'm so strong to die 'cause
I know what I want to be
Track Name: Waiting In The Rain
I'm standing in the rain
My body feels no pain
But heart is still waiting for your steps and your quiet voice
The memory of past
Makes my dreams turn dust
Which could be a shelter for us and my pride

I could not believe your words
They seemed to me so false
You’ve never heard my cries and went away in the dark
Walking through the streets
You see the same like me
Did you forever left me in a sea of senselessness?

------CHORUS------

Now I waiting for my destiny in the rain
Maybe someday I'll meet you in the autumn again
Following you, I drove myself to a standstill
Just this life is not a fantasy, but real
Track Name: Devil In Us All
When I see your smile
I wanna make you pain
It is not a crime
It's just a devil's game

If you close your eyes
I'll make you feel no pain
You will see red lights

'Cause baby you're in hell
'Cause you’re in hell

------CHORUS------

I'll make you crying
I'll make you pain
Because your smile depresses me

I'll make you burning
You'll burn in hell
But you can't stop this train of life

I know that devil fighting for our hearts
Know, that devil fighting for our souls
Oh, devil fighting for ourselves and devil in us all
Oh, devil in us all

Oh, Father I know
That devil fighting for our hearts and souls
I know that devil fighting for ourselves
And devil in us all
Devil in us all! I die!
Track Name: Living For Today
Winds will carry me to hell
Miles are fly under wheels in the dark side
In it's time I can be myself
Let it roar, when I'm on my way, I'll ride!

I can be above
I can be ahead
The strongest always will stand

------CHORUS------

Sky is getting closer for me
Road will shine before my eyes
Anytime I can break away
Cause I'm living for today

But my fate seems so strange
I was locked in an empty cage
Anytime you can break away
You must live for today

How many turns behind
How many rules which I followed
Feeling the speed inside
I'll get rid from my fears and my sorrows

The distance is nothing
When you ride alone
Just you never had a home

------CHORUS------

Sky is getting closer for me
Road will shine before my eyes
Anytime I can break away
Cause I'm living for today

But my fate seems so strange
I was locked in an empty cage
Anytime you can break away
You must live for today
Track Name: Twelve Candles
Father, can you tell me
What is life without a question "why"?
I hear the voices, they call my name
And I hold the torch before an open door

Someday we'll know all answers Someday we will choose our way (into the light)
Behold, twelve candles around us
Welcome to the road astray

I'll lead you to the land of passion
Open your mind and read the lines
The Book of Spirits takes away from our world
To the places that you'll never realize

To be alone or to be free
From chains of sorrow and despair
There's no place for me, forever

We run through halls
Of thousands mirrors of the lie
Don't watch in your destiny's eyes

Revival of my soul, rebirth of my existence
I know it's all deception and grand illusion
New meaning, new knowledge and new horizons gone
And I have lived to crush this confusion

Revival of my soul, rebirth of my existence
I know it's all deception and grand illusion
New meaning, new knowledge and new horizons gone
And I have lived to tell it all to you

(Together we'll find the road
To home from unholy world
We follow the candlelight
Oh, Father, please help us to fight)

I wonder why people do wrong things
To know more than you and me
And to try to forget once again

What is life without a question "why"?
At the same time we always lie
But I can't anymore

Do you hear this cry of souls
From the abyss of sins and of falls?
Be strong and be yourself on your way

I still remember this castle with its
Burning candles so bright
Have you ever been so scared?
Track Name: Autumn Road
I still remember coming home through fields of fate
When seasons changed and clouds concealed the sun
Against the wind I walked so very long
Strings of my soul make me run

------CHORUS------

Before I go I want to say
Because of you I’d like to stay
Your hair was the color of gold
We've been going along the autumn road

One night with you before the storm of human hate
One night when I held you in my arms so tight
And I believe, my honour will be your gate
To our world of love and light

------CHORUS------

Before I go I want to say
Because of you I’d like to stay
Your hair was the color of gold
We've been going along the autumn road

After the rain will be a sunshine
To kill all the darkness
In minds of the lovers
We'll never be together
But love'll live forever
Now my heart is broken
I will never be free again

(Autumn road... Do you remember tales that I told?
Drowning in dreams we'll walk to Neverland
On the autumn road we stand)
