This invasion marching through the lands is a sign of the end Drawn by hatred, vengeance and dismay in a pointless display They attack with empty eyes blindfold by poems of lies Betrayed by the Scripts from the Past There’s no light where they come from The Art of Evil Deadly and coming your way The Art of Evil We will fight till the bitter end This intrusion threatens every man Preparing their final stand Dogma driven drowning lies Bring the fall for our kind Like a cancer they breed on your fear Claiming all hope that is here It's a monolith mocking of life There’s no grace where they come from The Art of Evil Deadly and coming your way The Art of Evil We will fight till the bitter end Let the fight begin! Hail - Rise - Fight Hail - Rise - Fight Hail - Rise - Fight Hail - Rise - Fight The Art of Evil Deadly and coming your way The Art of Evil We will fight till the bitter end

I enter the hour of madness here is nothing but sorrow and sadness (Welcome to the show) Life inside a world of closing doors I feel caught, caught in the devil’s claws All is lost, and you can't be sane and free I’m drowning in a Sea of Damnation To the echoes of a standing ovation Life inside a world of closing doors And I feel caught, caught in the devil’s claws All is lost, and you can't be sane and free Drifting away Fading away Drifting away Fading away Life inside a world of closing doors I feel caught, caught in the devil’s claws All is lost, and you can't be sane and free

Black widow, Queen of the Night Hiding in the shadows, Spitting fire Soul Reaper, Feeding on lies, She'll turn your heart to stone Dancer of darkness, the sun as her disguise Fooling your heart Until you fall apart With the light side down Find your will to live Take this battle, and never forgive Can you take it, you're a subject to lies Always searching, for the truth in her eyes Her love you can never attain You are entering a Demon's Domain A Demon's Domain Can you face it You are in her control You are searching, within her soul And the flame you will never detain You will not escape the Demon's domain She's the black widow Queen of the Night Hiding in the shadows, Spitting fire Soul reaper Taking your life, She'll turn your heart to stone Black widow, Queen of the Night Hiding in the shadows, Spitting fire Soul reaper, Feeding on lies, She'll turn your heart to stone A Demon’s Domain Temptation Forever My heart will burn Temptation Forever My heart will burn Fly with me, you and I are meant to be All this time, you have been a dream of mine Eternal sleep, we are just a memory You and I, soaring in a burning sky She's the black widow, the Queen of the Night She is in the shadows, Spitting fire Soul reaper, Say your goodbyes, She'll turn your heart to stone Black widow, Queen of the Night Hiding in the shadows, Spitting fire Soul reaper, Say your goodbyes She'll turn your heart to stone

Strangers descent from the heavens making their presence known Taking back what is rightfully theirs Taking back what they own They came through the gate Ferocious, unreal, a foul avenger A legion of hate An alien life contender Breaking down the wall Aiming at our world We’ll all take the fall They crawl under your skin To break any barrier A fear spreading carrier Don't let them in They came to obtain The essence of life, the human fire A new breeding place to their queen’s desire Breaking down the wall Aiming at our world We’ll all take the fall Breaking down the wall Aiming at our world We’ll all take the fall Breaking down the wall Breaking down the wall

Frozen 04:44
Stuck in this fantasy lonely, twisted, and blind Caught in a useless melody That is tearing me up inside I feel the wrath an unbreakable path broken and enslaved to my own imagination Frozen Refining my life - DEAD, COLD - Transformation Reincarnation Wrestling with demons now Is it real or a dream? Helplessly calling out your name with a breathless silent scream I feel the wrath an unbreakable path broken and enslaved to my own imagination Frozen Refining my life - DEAD, COLD - Transformation Reincarnation Now ... My end is near, I'm on my own I’m feeling the fear My name carved in stone My heart is cold as ice Now lay me to rest Knowing the pain surrounding me let my blackened soul be free I feel the wrath an unbreakable path broken and enslaved to my own imagination Frozen Refining my life - DEAD, COLD - Transformation Reincarnation Frozen Take this life - Resurrection to my perfection

The Escape 04:52
This time at midnight The shadows dance Reveals the story of A life in flames In the burning light I feel the pain One broken soul Another life in a hole But are you really free or a melody of what could be The end comes closer accept your fate the wound grows deeper a life in vain The light is fading now Free the … Pain One broken soul Another life in a hole But are you really free or a melody of what could be What could be another story Took a turn there’s no way back (no way back) All hope is lost this is the ending Fade to black the clock stops ticking Tested the limits of life Trying to heal the pain Hoping to end this bitter confusion To escape the darkness

I saw the heavens falling A hero slain An omen of the changes That will ingrain The world has turned to madness Now I see Corruption plagues the power You fought to free I feel the light escaping my soul I feel the wrath conquer the cold You fought so brave to try and Win this fight But you lost to this darkness The eternal night So I am now the one to Hold the key The burden now befalls me To lead this mutiny I feel a hope return to my soul I feel the wrath let go of the cold In Silence We Ride On a mission to take down the sunlight In silence we fly It’s our final time to rise We need a revolution to regain The people’s trust and power And start again We need a new solution On this day This is the final hour We can’t stay I feel the light rescue my soul I feel the wrath conquer the cold In Silence We Ride On a mission to take down the sunlight In silence we fly It’s our final time to rise We’ll reclaim the sky In Silence We Ride We will rise! I feel no wrath we’re out of the cold In Silence We Ride On a mission to take down the sunlight In silence we fly It’s our final time to rise In Silence We Ride On a mission to reclaim the sky In silence we fly It's our time to rise

Catch-22 05:11
I am the fallen I came from the sky I’ve conquered the darkness I am the night Your fears I created You'll never stand a chance Your mind is sedated Your will is in my hands Ain’t no cure for the evil in you The darkness within will always shine through Bring the light into the darkness We'll bring the night to an end A spark of light feeding on darkness We all unite Together we stand I am your God now Your sins I create I took your heart out and watched it decay Ain’t no cure for the evil in you The darkness within will always shine through Bring the light into the darkness We'll bring the night to an end A spark of light feeding on darkness We all unite Together we stand Together we will stand We’ll stand together Preachers of the night Come to me ... HA HA HA Open the gates To immortality Take this life into the darkness We will bring the light to an end Take this gift, the life you long for Don’t resist the truth in you Ain’t no cure for the evil in you The darkness within will always shine through Bring the light into the darkness We'll bring the night to an end A spark of light feeding on darkness We all unite Together we stand

Our Journey 03:49
Why will you abandon me? And leave me in the cold My Misery Why, oh why you fail to see? My heart will bleed Eternally You feel no shame when you leave me dealing with the pain Why, why don’t you speak to me? Whispering my name silently You feel no shame when you leave me dealing with the pain This time I died Now the angels cry (Goodbye) Someday, somewhere we'll meet again. Some place, somehow Our Journey ends Now, you left me here to stay I'm the guilty one Who threw your heart away You failed to see My misery is history My Misery Our Journey ends so peacefully ... This time we died This time I cried Goodbye Someday, somewhere we'll meet again. Some place, somehow Our Journey ends Someday, somewhere we'll meet again. Some place, somehow Our Journey ends

Don't look back Clear your mind Take these eyes and behold what you find - don't change your mind It won't be hard You won't struggle Let the shadows guide you Keep your focus Take control Let it in and let it show The Skies Are Falling Darkness crawling The Skies Are Falling They’re falling down Give your mind to the darkness You will see things progress Lead my army Take control Let it in and let it show The Skies Are Falling Darkness crawling The Skies Are Falling They’re falling down You are giving in to a world of anguish There’s no returning I will be witness to your demise The Skies Are Falling Darkness crawling The Skies Are Falling They’re falling down down down The demons within Chaos consumes your mind I am gonna bring you down I am gonna break you apart I’m coming for you I’m coming for you Power, corruption, destruction – I’ll break you Take you, forsake you, unmake you Burning your soul away Burning your soul away Burning your soul away
