Track Name: I Will Not Bend
Year after year as the centuries run
No sign of the merciless god
Abandoned and treated indifferently
Released in confusion we roam
May we surrender and stare to the skies
Waiting for our time to come?
Frightened and lost in the black of the night
Shall we resign to the fall?

I Will Not Bend!

Lurking and waiting for chances to come
Corruption is leading our kind
Slave to our ignorance, selfish and mean
We obscured the gleaming of life
Downward the spiral of sorrow and hate
There where humanity drowns
Looking for something is worth fighting for
Redeeming the souls we have sold

I Will Not Bend!

I’ll defend till the end what there’s left to fight for
I won’t bend to hypocrisy and greed
We were born with much more than a rotten heart
But when our god has left so far from here Pandora’s box we filled

Fighting each other and fighting our fate
We never considered the hope
Towering over the weaks we have crushed
With no shame at all we show off
Killing and cheating and acting like gods
Pretending we are not parasites
We are not different from who left us in this hole
The hole in the hearts we live in

I Will Not Bend!

I’ll defend till the end what there’s left to fight for
I won’t bend to hypocrisy and greed
We were born with much more than a rotten heart
But when our god has left so far from here Pandora’s box we filled

(Solo: Gimmy)
(Solo: Rampage)
Track Name: Missing Generation
Cry for your fate forlorn
They are gone, yours is the fault
I set you free from what was ravaging your town
By river waters cold I drowned them all for you
For you betrayed me, now I'm back dressed in green
I've come to take the joy from Hamelin

I'm here to take your future to the grave
You will never see your children smile again
I'll take them all with me, I'll leave you in misery
They'll pay for your sin

You're to blame for this bane
Grieve for your future undone
Liars in the church you pray and praise your lord
You just can't hear revenge that plays forward
Your god won't save your kids as they follow me
To the cave that will swallow their dreams

I'm here to take your future to the grave
You will never see your children smile again
I'll take them all with me, I'll leave you in misery
They'll pay for your sin
That twinkle in their eyes I steal with my pipe
Your children just like rats they'll meet the scythe
Their empty eyes can't see, they're lead by a melody
And all that remains to you is grief

(Solo: Gimmy)

Cry loud for your blindness
Cry loud for your sons
Cry loud for the kids that will not come back anymore

(Solo: Gimmy)

They died - for your blindness
They died - your precious sons
They died - they are gone and the fault is yours
The fault is yours!
Track Name: Fragments Of A Hologram Rose
Sleep won’t come to ease my sorrow
This white sound brings me in you
Through your eyes I now live what you lived…
A past without me

Should I feel closer to you
By remembering your past life?

The last memory of you
That taxi parting me from you
The awareness deep into myself
I’ll never see you again
My dear love

Under a poison dirty rain you just left never looking back
All you left behind are fragments of a hologram rose
Every little piece will show a point of view still never known
Don’t know what means, in this rose myself I see

(Solo: Gimmy)

Under a poison dirty rain you just left without looking back
All you left behind are fragments of a hologram rose
Every little piece will show a part of you I’ll never know
Don’t know what means, in this rose myself I see
Track Name: The Chase
One more day - The Pequod travels fast riding the tide
One more night - I just can’t overcome the nightmares
That keep haunting my sleep and my watch
Infecting heart and brain of what once use to be a man
And now is just a worn-out shade

I will live! Lurching on the waves to find my fate
You will die! To search over the seas for what is mine
Ocean deep! My hate will reach you even in the abyss
Slay your kind! You’ll be mine

Sailing on
I’ll chase and find you
Sailing on
No wave will hide you now
Sailing on
When I’ll reach the place
There where the demon hides
My vengeance and my fate I will fulfill

(Solo: Rampage)

I’m the old thunder - None can heal the wounds it left inside
Burning madness - None can understand the pain that leads
My quest and my restless soul through the seven seas
To find and kill the monster white
And finally get peace and rest

I will live! Lurching on the waves to find my fate
You will die! To search over the seas for what is mine
Ocean deep! My hate will reach you even in the abyss
Slay your kind! You’ll be mine

Sailing on
I’ll chase and find you
Sailing on
No wave will hide you now
Sailing on
When I’ll reach the place
There where the demon hides
My vengeance and my fate I will fulfill


To the last I grapple with thee
From hell’s heart I stab at thee
For hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee

(Solo: Gimmy)

I don’t care if I will die
I just won’t let you survive
In the end the only important thing is vengeance

I’ve just paid the cost in full
My soul’s the price to defeat you
Now I know our time has come
Our time has come!

(Solo: Rampage)
Track Name: Dracula (Iced Earth Cover)
Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in destiny?
True love may come only once in a thousand lifetimes...
I too have loved, they took her from me.
I prayed for her soul, I prayed for her peace

When I close my eyes
I see her face, it comforts me
When I close my eyes
Memories cut like a knife

The blood is the life, and Christ I defy.
My sworn enemy, birth of a new creed.

Is this my reward for serving God's own war?
The blood I've spilled for faith fulfilled.
To damn her, a disgrace, you spit back in my face.
I served you loyally, and you spew blasphemy.

I avenge with darkness, the blood is the life
The Order of the Dragon, I feed on human life

There are far worse things awaiting man than death
Come taste what I have seen
I'm spreading my disease
I will feed upon His precious child
The human race will bleed, they will serve my need.

I avenge with darkness, the blood is the life
The Order of the Dragon, I feed on human life

I am the Dragon of blood, a relentless prince of pain
Renouncing God on His throne
My blood is forever stained

For true love I shall avenge
I defy the creed that damned her
