Track Name: Curse of the Iron King
Along the trail the wind is blowing,
sudden gust of fusty air.
Sad reminder of the years gone by.
Pile of rocks lies down the valley,
carved words, forgotten signs.
Tired statue that's pointing to the sky.
pre chorus

And who will mention those days of disgrace?
Which have gone away like dust! Ooo...
chorus

Now let the wind tell you the story.
All that recalls the past is stone.
Ten thousand years of purgatory.
As time goes by he dwells alone.
It's the curse of Iron King.

Anger pushes to the treason,
shrouding thoughts with pitch-black veil,
turning man into the mindless beast.
Brother stood against his brother,
and his eyes were blind to see,
that his heart was engulfed by the greed.

chorus

Hey stranger, slow down in journey.
And hear the whispers in the wind.
Let them remind you how I suffer.
And shed a tear for poor old King.

chorus
Track Name: The Legend
We ride across the land we sail on the sea
Our legend born from deep within where it was meant to be
When weaklings call our name we'll always stand to fight
Smashing all the infidels, filling all the men with pride
chorus

Riding together all across the land
Crushing all that's in our way forever we will stand
And we'll never retreat, we will arise
Because the legend lives in us

On mighty steeds we are purging through the lands
Our armors shine so bright reflecting the rising sun
With power given straight from the source of divine
Nothing can stop us now we strike fast and hard

chorus
Track Name: Army of Salvation
To know defeat and endure, is an honorable thing.
But to grow complacent in your victories - is a shameful act.
Józef Piłsudski

We're riding for glory, the soldiers of faith,
on our mighty steeds to far distant land.
Together we're fearless, together we're brave.
We take no prisoners, we send foes to grave.

Tonight we stand for a fight.
With fury our swords strike.
And your name shall be our guide,
when it's time for us to die.
chorus

We are the soldiers, brothers in arms.
Fighting for glory in the name of God.
We are the soldiers, we are the chosen ones.
Army of Salvation comes.

Our faith makes us stronger, our fears we have lost.
With pride we are wearing the sign of the cross.
Through heart of the desert to battle we came
to tear down the walls of Jerusalem.

We kill without remorse,
with power of our swords.
We die without regret.
Our fate is already set.

chorus

Tonight we will stand to fight.
With fury our swords will strike.
And your name shall be our guide,
when it's time for us to die.

chorus x2
Track Name: An Old Bard
My father told me once
Listen to me son
What's important in this life
Is to be a righteous man

Now he's gone and left me on my own
With a scar left on my heart
God, I want to live forever!
I will become a bard!

My best friend is a lute in my hand
Sounds of night I have played
Tales of king who conquered the dragon's land

Stories are hidden deep inside me
And I need to set them free
But I cannot do this anymore
chorus

Now he's sitting here alone
An old bard on his throne
Forever young
Memories of the fallen ones
Live in our hearts live in our minds
Forever young

Now I'm old, it's a misery
Oh my god, please set me free
Release me from this human flesh of mine

My eternal soul will be roaming free
What happens next I cannot see
Exegi monumentum

chorus
Track Name: Eversong
Hear the birds, singing their chants,
Among the trees, the melody enchants,
They tell a story written over the years,
Full of happiness and thousand bitter tears.

Once there was a man, the righteous knight.
A mighty warrior who's lost his strength to fight
He met a prophet and he asked him why?
If I were strong enough would I have to die?
I don't want to die!
chorus

March through the lands with candlelight,
We bring the "Eversong", the sound of the night.
Come and listen the song of all hope.
Before the dawn no one is alone.

So the "Eversong" is over now,
But we'll meet together again,
In different place, in different time.
And now I say goodbye.
Track Name: Riders of the Dead
Out of deep undergrounds
We shall spread around
Riders of the dead.
Once more we hear the call.
We shall obey the law.
Law which once was set.
The wish of death will save us from captivity.
Our thoughts are determined by insanity.

Who dares to summon us
Will have to pay the price,
Price in human blood.
This is your destiny.
You will crawl in agony.
Then we will slit your throat.
No one can stand against us for eternity.
This strength was given to us by immortality.
chorus

Tonight
We're gonna ride
Tonight
Into hellfire.
Tonight
You know there is no way back
Tonight
We're gonna ride
Tonight
Into hellfire
Tonight
We're gonna take your soul to hell!

After dusk,
When it rains
You may now ask
Or rather pray.
If they heard your call
You better run,
Or they will take your soul.
Harvest has begun.
chorus

Tonight
We're gonna ride
Tonight
Into hellfire.
Tonight
You know there is no way back
Tonight
We're gonna ride
Tonight
Into hellfire
Tonight
We're gonna take your soul to hell!
Track Name: Rebellion
Born in the chains of steel the child of fear.
Raise yourself again, the end is near.
Turn your back on enemies, let the curtain fall.
You are revolution, a seed that grows.

You're condemned with sorrow in this never-ending horror,
where they tied you up, and brought you down.
chorus

Rebellion, rebellion, rebellion,
Glory, glory to the brave.
Rebellion, rebellion, rebellion,
Follow blindly to the grave.

Don't you believe it can be done
to push thy will and free your mind?
Understand that's worth to fight
for something else than black or white.
But no matter what you will find
searching out all day and night.
If you still can't see the light,
you'll realize that you are blind.

My hands are tied up by a web of lies.
My world filled up with fools and false allies.
Follow the instructions, that's what I have sworn.
I am revolution, the plant has grown.)

I'm condemned with sorrow in this never-ending horror
where they tied me up, and brought me down.
chorus

Rebellion, rebellion, rebellion,
Glory, glory to the brave.
Rebellion, rebellion, rebellion,
Follow blindly to the grave.
Track Name: The Werewolf
I stand alone at this holy night.
Staring at the moon, it shines for me tonight.
That makes me feel like I am strong enough
to survive. To stay alive!

It was calm, winter night
when I saw her pretty eyes
and I fell in love for a lifetime.
Yet there's something she knows not
what I hide within my heart.
I was born to be the servant of the night.

Damned by the light,
The child of the nighttime.
The secret bounds his heart,
And it will never be revealed to his future bride.

The time will come
When the moon rises high,
And the wolves start to howl,
Calling my destiny.
Now I can feel that beast inside me.
I am lost in the dark forever.

The charm vanished when
She seduced another man.
Who knows there's a cure,
Silver bullet or two.
The last thing I have seen
was her lips kissing him,
when I turned into beast one last time.

Damned by the light,
The child of the nighttime.
Betrayed by his bride,
Now be afraid of the vengeance of the werewolf kind.

The time will come,
When the moon rises high,
And the wolves start to howl,
Calling my destiny,
Now I can feel that beast inside me,
I am lost in the dark forever.

I am left alone, I am left alone,
But my heart still goes on.
Track Name: Desert of Destiny
Once we were one thought freed from the shackles of wicked mind.
Just like one body, safe in the embrace of the Father Time.
What is done can't be undone
and my words were like a crime.
I know, I might be wrong
but I cannot turn back time.

All days were brighter when you were standing along with me.
All nights were warmer when you were lying down beside me.
Now my body shakes of cold.
I can't feel the warmth of Sun.
I didn't want to let you go,
but I cannot turn back time.
chorus

Far beyond the horizon golden sand is shining bright.
And I know I could beat the world with you by my side.
Long ago I have lost myself, this journey lasts eternity.
I have hope to find you there, on the desert of destiny.

The road is tough but I will find the courage to carry on.
This burden I must bear, I will cast into oblivion.
I wanted to tell you one thing I've never said.
My heart still belongs to you, please forgive me my mistakes.

And then the heavens will turn blue, and clouds will fade away.
And I could feel at home, like I was already there.
I'm at the beginning and you are waiting at the end.
The time for us will come when falls the last grain of sand.
And I will find you there on this desert of destiny.
chorus

Far beyond the horizon golden sand is shining bright.
And I know I could beat the world with you by my side.
Long ago I have lost myself, this journey lasts eternity.
I have hope to find you there, on the desert of destiny.
