The Headless Horseman Runs through the night Giving villagers a bloody fright They seek him here They seek him there They’ve found his sleepy hollow Slashing bodies to the ground Listen to the bloody sound As he gallops through the night The Headless Horseman kills tonight Dashing through the misty trees People screaming on their knees With one swing he takes their head The Headless Horseman makes them dead The Headless Horseman Runs through the day Now he comes to take your souls away You hear the screams Of those who’ve gone And now you know the horror’s just begun Slashing bodies to the ground Listen to the bloody sound As he gallops through the night The Headless Horseman kills tonight Dashing through the misty trees People screaming on their knees With one swing he takes their head The Headless Horseman rides again

The Lycan 04:53
As the full moon rises I can feel my body changing Through the darkest hour Feel my body separating As the change takes place again Feel my body become divine No one knows what I will be Do you know? Do you see? And I feel the change within me Now the night is finally here And my head is finally clear I seek violence 'til I sleep For the beast within Howl, as you’re running through the night And there’s no place else to hide Having the wind tear through my spine Dark, with my predatory eyes I prepare for your demise I am the Lycan, I will end you During my time as the beast Hunger forever is the master Slaying then becomes the fun No one escapes me in my stride As the sun light comes to peak I escape into myself Always seen by none Now you know, now you run And again I shall become him Now the night is finally here And my head is finally clear I seek violence 'til I sleep For the beast within Howl, as you’re running through the night And there’s no place else to hide Having the wind tear through my spine Dark, with my predatory eyes I prepare for your demise I am the Lycan, I will end you

The Gates of Hades are open wide People screaming as the blood runs down their eyes The red hot shackles, melting my flesh Searing skin as the steal touches the bone The Gates of Hades are open once again. The path to the underworld, where demons drift and play No time for the broken hearts it’s the evil that they fear Hailing the dark prince on stony ground Lashing whips across the back of every bow The three headed dog, defends the gates Snarling, biting he rips the men apart The Gates of Hades are open once again. The path to the underworld, where demons drift and play No time for the broken hearts it’s the evil that they fear Protect us from the devil dog His teeth are gleaming white Defender of the gates of hell He’ll take your life tonight The Gates of Hades are open wide Virgins scream as the blood runs down there thighs The clouded sky, strikes lightning bolts Rising flames as the devil takes your soul Feel the pain as his hand rips from your bones Can’t you feel the rancid air spurt from your chest You’re in hell now as your heart beats once again The Gates of Hades are open once again. The path to the underworld, where demons drift and play No time for the broken hearts it’s the evil that they fear Protect us from the devil dog His teeth are gleaming white Defender of the gates of hell He’ll take your life tonight

Inferno 06:30
Descend into the nine The circles they surround the lake Made of ice not fire Passed gluttony, hate and liars The River Styx I cross With Charons head leading the way The Devil's laughing at me constantly With Beatrice by his side Fire, is rising Flames, consume within Fire, the things I cannot describe Before my very eyes I can't believe it But I can feel it This is the end I know the Lord won't compromise Virgil awaits for me Provides the path through Lust and Greed Twisted souls are tortured Forevermore, no salvation The Rivers of Boiling Blood They flow with screams while all around The fire's burning bright constantly Never turn out the light Fire, is rising Flames, consume within Fire, the things I cannot describe Before my very eyes I can't believe it But I can feel it This is the end I know the Lord won't compromise I can't believe it But I can feel it This is the end I know the Lord won't compromise I can't appease the Lord of my suffering I can't appease the Lord of my suffering I can't appease the Lord of my suffering I can't appease the Lord of my suffering I can't believe the things that I am seeing My infidelity caused this situation Please take my life for all of her suffering My love Beatrice please forgive me I can't believe it But I can feel it This is the end I know the Lord won't compromise I can't believe it But I can feel it The comedy I know the Lord won't compromise Oh no the Lord won’t compromise No your God he won’t compromise

Look into those eyes divine The night of Samhain has arrived As he rises up from his unmarked grave Cast aside the one you praise Fear is coming through the night The flickering of candlelight His silhouette spread across the land ‘Til he reaches his journeys end The night of Samhain, The night of Samhain The night of Samhain, The night of Samhain Fear rushes through my mind Before temptation has chance to fly As emotions snatch us from the flight Takes us back to his embrace Steal my eyes, take my face Walk alone through autumns grace He's the devils toy not out of place Masked behind the human race The night of Samhain, The night of Samhain The night of Samhain, The night of Samhain Life is the key to all Halloween on crimson soil The bone fires burn on through the night The wandering dead have an altar spread Souls no longer drift alone Tethered to the beast who roams His limitations are seen by all Lured away from what you know The night of Samhain, The night of Samhain The night of Samhain, The night of Samhain Walk alone in this desolate place And I see the full moon rising Walking through the darkened space As I feel the trees untwining Look into those devils eyes As the stars they start to brighten Part the clouds and watch the sky As the signs align again Emptiness inside me And I can't believe the things I see Can't belong where I don't believe And I feel temptation come to pass All alone in the midnight sun Snap of twigs and you fail to run Hush of silence running through the black abyss Broken trees, fallen grass Feel the tension you can't surpass In the distance voices draw me nearer Like a force pulling me Towards the parting trees And the midnight hour is drawing to its end Listen to the ritual Sacrifice the goat laid bare Spill the blood and let it fall onto the soil In the night watch the flames rise As the darkness consumes all And the fear is growing ever higher Don't belong where I stand Samhain will come to an end And the harvest will come for another year

You're living through the day But the light fades to grey The answers to your questions They lie deep within your soul Don’t ever change your path With everything you know You see what's coming next You feel the pouring rain The emptiness of time is getting closer to distain You'll never walk alone Just go pick up the phone Don't ever take what's left and throw it all into the fire You're screaming out in pain You feel you've gone insane You're screaming down the alleyway the nightmare still remains You've see their wicked ways You'll take their name in vein The ashes crumble through your fingers but still the wall remains The end is looking bright But still you want the night You lie awake forever Wondering what’s coming soon You forget the things That you take onboard with you You see what's coming next You feel the pouring rain The emptiness of time is getting closer to distain You'll never walk alone Just go pick up the phone Don't ever take what's left and throw it all into the fire You're screaming out in pain You feel you've gone insane You're screaming down the alleyway the nightmare still remains You've see their wicked ways You'll take their name in vein The ashes crumble through your fingers but still the wall remains You're screaming out in pain You feel you've gone insane You're screaming down the alleyway the nightmare still remains You've see their wicked ways You'll take their name in vein The ashes crumble through your fingers but still the wall remains

Peaceful city in the dawn Detonation breaks the morn Blinding light the last we see Everything is turned to dust The fires scorch the earth Decimating all All structures vapourised That once stood tall Nuclear winter's here Death to us all Holding our breath in fear They're our last Cloud of death rising Soaring above The sunlight fading Darkness of the world The death toll rises No one is safe The reign of fire begins End of life has begun Fading light across the world Blood moon red the darkness falls Smoke it fill the atmosphere All of life returned to dust The fires scorch the earth Decimating all All structures vapourised That once stood tall Nuclear winter's here Death to us all Holding our breath in fear They're our last Cloud of death rising Soaring above The sunlight fading Darkness of the world The death toll rises No one is safe The reign of fire begins End of life has begun

Traitor 06:15
Order called Welcome to this court room today We're sentencing this soul here today He's on trial for heresy we say His life must end to fix the human race This traitor walks among us Spreading all his lies This traitor walks among us Spreading all those lies He speaks out at orders that we've lain He can't control his tongue he's insane This courtroom will sentence him today This can't go on he has got to die This traitor walks among us Spreading all his lies This traitor walks among us We'll sentence him to die Now I've got one more chance for you to take You've the chance to save yourself, know what's at stake I know what you've done but I can not control Stand by my side and we will throw this all away Where's your loyalty lie? There's a place right by my side Where's your loyalty lie? There's a place right by my side This traitor walks among us Spreading all his lies This traitor walks among us We've sentenced him to die

The Gunslinger walks through the sands in to the dawn A silhouette carved out of stone rises above The Dark Tower waits The things I forsake I can't take the blame for the things I've done I can't walk away This thing is unchained I don't want to be so far away The Crimson King, eater of worlds, atop his throne Devising Discordia to remake the world The Dark Tower waits The things I forsake I can't take the blame for the things I've done I can't walk away This thing is unchained I don't want to be so far away

Locked away and thrown away the key my foresight's all that I've seen Life's restriction, no fame or addiction a prophet or madness is me Otherwise blinded, but not absent minded the visions are all I can see Terror, destruction, gore and seduction is this what is going to be? Circling madness I see visions around me All I can see is what I don't want to be Screaming within, I can't take any more Shackled in chains, my body is estranged my mind is all that is free In darkness comes fire, free pass for a liar a puppet master pulling the strings A fight for resources, no cars and no horses I see a shell of what used to be A future depiction, is all of this fiction? What the hell does all of this mean? Circling madness I see visions around me All I can see is what I don't want to be Screaming within, I can't take any more My eyes are blazing but none of it's fading, return me to the blackness I seek Horror, sickness, plaguing the weakest, the rotting of the corpses to be Excuse is religion for destroying a region using fear to meet their own needs No wonder I'm in here, no witness to my fear I hope this is some madness in me Circling madness I see visions around me All I can see is what I don't want to be Screaming within, I can't take any more Returning darkness, no more visions to bind me All I can see is blindness stricken to me Peaceful within, I couldn't take any more

May of '37, the craft it soars Second year of flight, to their delight Boston on the morn' of what we won't soon forget Headwinds slow the flight for landing at Lakehurst before night, they set a course for Manhattan's skies, unaware of what's soon to come See the flames start rising From the pride of the skies As it joins the R101 on the page See the tears from crying Oh the humanity This is how the end of an era came to be Seven of the night, a flying moor to the mooring mast, its final plight Standard procedure before the ending unfolds Igniting of gas the airship became engulfed in flames, a shell remains End of airship flight was decided after this night See the flames start rising From the pride of the skies As it joins the R101 on the page See the tears from crying Oh the humanity This is how the end of an era came to be
