Track Name: Dice
Dice

The mirror calls me, the bell tolls
The wheel of life – it rolls
This magic door to worlds of war
That’s what I’m looking for

It’s my turn now
Where we delve today

We’re not ourselves
In these weird realms
We throw the dice and…

Chorus:
Dices lead our blind fates
We can’t change anything
Dices – they’re taking us away

We’re not ourselves
In these weird realms

Come with me
Let the dice take you anywhere

It goes on and on and on
And on and on and on
Wheel of life turns on and on
And on and on and on

The mirror calls me, the bell tolls
The wheel of life – it rolls
We laugh and cry, we live and die
We creep and then we fly

Repeat chorus

We’re not ourselves
In these weird realms
We throw the dice and…
Track Name: Fury Of The Nordmen
Fury Of The Nordmen

Under the bloodred sky
Our banners fly
And the waves raise us high
So high

Five days ago
We left our sweet home
Cold salty wind
It will help us win
Fire in our chests
We come from North-West
Guided by wise Odin

Chorus:
Savages we are
And will always be
Guided by the star
We will come to thee

I do not fear
To die by your spear
Valkiries will
Take me to Gljaddsheim
Hall of the feast
Covered by Tund's mist
There waits my god - Odin

Repeat chorus

Repeat chorus

Mighty Odin, here's my sacrifice to you, they all
Now belong to you, take them
Mighty Odin, here's my sacrifice to you, they all
Now belong to you, take them

(Under the bloodred sky
His ravens fly
Warriors never die)
Track Name: Malleus Maleficarum
Malleus Maleficarum

Times of witch-hunt
Cruel and harsh
Instead of Garden of Eden
The dead marsh
Fanatics, lunatics

Chorus:
Freedom call, take your toll
Call us all, call us all
Silent pray leads away
Not astray, not astray
We can live our lives how we want to

They lie
They kill
In the name of their god
By his will

Don't go
With them
They will lead you to hellfire

Repeat chorus

We'll fight for our faith
We'll fight, it's our fate
We'll fight for our faith
We'll fight, it's our fate

Times of witch-hunt
Cruel and harsh
Instead of Garden of Eden
The dead marsh
Fanatics, lunatics

Repeat chorus
Track Name: Fall of Monsegur
Fall Of Monsegur

Freedom fed to flames
Killed by the church’s slaves

Fetch ‘em all
Kill ‘em all
Burn ‘em all

Field of the burnt
Blood, fire and dirt
Dreadful alert
Murderers led by the church

Smoke to the sky
White bird will die
And never fly again
Murderers led by the church

Heretics – the priest speaks
Don’t return
Burn, burn, burn

Freedom fed to flames
Killed by the church’s slaves

Field of the burnt
Blood fire and dirt
Dreadful alert
Murderers led by the church

Smoke to the sky
White bird will die
And never fly again
Murderers led by the church

Wisdom fails in loud hails
We’ll return
Now we burn
Track Name: Pink-Minded World
Pink-minded World

When you are lost in darkness
Your god sleeps
When you refuse to follow him
Your god weeps

No one can understand
What you stand for

Suffocation is the thing you can't avoid
When you face pink-minded world
You're surrounded by the silly sheep that can't
Understand your single word

Love in fashion, loneliness is left for freaks
And you're being called the one
They all dream only of looking good, and you think
If I only had a gun

Chorus:
Restless beat inside your head
So, survivor, dream is dead
Childhood's gone, you're left alone
Childhood's gone, and dream is gone

No one can understand
What you live for

What's your final aim
Will you win the game
And achieve the fame

Or will you die alone
Will you turn to stone
When your time is gone

Repeat chorus

No one can understand
What you'll die for
Track Name: Quest To The Lonely Mountain
Quest To The Lonely Mountain

They came and broke my old life
Now I’m with them on a quest
Dangerous and mournful path
Don’t know when I’ll take a rest

Lonely it stands
Mountain – our goal
Dragon in it
The greedy soul

Chorus:
Dwarven treasure I can’t measure
Waits in dark lands, waits for our hands
I must help them return
The treasure, must turn
Into sneaky thief, must hide in darkness
Must be brave
In this dark cave

Deep in the caves under rocks
Evil, unknown creatures creep
But wizard is guiding our path
And there is no time to weep

I must confess I am afraid
Quests aren’t the thing
For which I’ve been made

Repeat chorus

Over and over I think of my dear silent home
I don’t know when I’ll return there again, I don’t know
Dangers so numerous wait for me out in the cold
I don’t want to perish here – no

Repeat chorus

Quest’s over, it’s time for war
Oh, how I wish I were home
Forces of Darkness appear
To take the mighty Great Stone

Oakenshield died
Died for us all
Nowhere to hide
No one to call

Repeat chorus
Track Name: We Are The World Pollution
We Are The World Pollution

Away from me, I tell you
Take off these wraps of lies
In ruins of your ambition
Our raped homeplanet lies

We are the nature’s rubbish
We are the parasites
There are too many of us
But you’re still telling lies

Hungry parasites
We are destroying our home

Chorus:
It’s time we heard
Cry of our raped motherland
It’s time we saw
Wounds of our hurt motherland

World pollution

We are the stupid creatures
We are the silly fools
In this world we call ours
Another power rules

Hungry parasites
We are destroying our home

Repeat chorus
Track Name: Piano
Piano

Father used to play the piano
Down in the dining room
But the autumn came
He was taken away
By the cruel doom

Gone to war
Home under threat
Far away
Gone he had

Mom weeps at night
Treats me right
Telling nothing about the dad
Once we were knocked
At the door
We got a letter – father was dead

Chorus:
It took away all we had
Cruel World War the Second
War of the Black and the Red
Cruel World War the Second

Mama, stop scaring me
Mom, cut it out
The way she behaves is not good
I’m so afraid
Mom, what’s happening to you
Insanity bout
World War the Second took her sanity

No, we must live
No, we must live

It means that now she’s a widow
I feel so scared
She grabs me and runs to the window
It is so weird
Does she want to kill both of us now
I don’t believe
We must overcome this pain somehow
But we must live

Now it is all so clear to me
And I don't blame her any longer
I know you can't think, you can't see
When your insanity grows stronger

Now what have you done
You’ve killed your own son
She must be insane
For father’s been slain

Once again he plays the piano
Down in the ground floor
And we stand by him
What a lovely sound
It lasts forevermore

What a tragedy
What a misery

Repeat chorus
Track Name: Breakaway
Breakaway

Black ghosts of trees rushing by
I'm free again, I can fly

Run away
(Don't linger any longer)
From decay
(Your fear is growing stronger)

Resurrection
Struggling tension
Dark temptation
Cold and windy night

Chorus:
Long starry night
I'm out of their sight
I run but not hide
Protect me, night

I left my prison behind
Now I have nowhere to hide

Drowned in darkness
Chased by madness
Calm and fearless
Covered by the night

Repeat chorus

Scary visions, wrong decisions
Darkness, hide me, they won't find me
Blood-mixed raindrops, distant hilltops
Hard way, long way leads from decay

Darkness, help me
Forest, hide me
Wind, don't stop me
I rush through the night

Repeat chorus
