Track Name: The Fifth Season
Appeared like a flash in spring
I couldn‘t get a hold of you
With swift feet, like a fearie of summer
You slipped through the bonds of my affection
Withered leaves are falling, winter is calling

Gone forever – the secrets that i do not know
Gone forever – expectations were too high

Your eyes are gazing at the wilderness
Burnt Offerings
Running through immaculate hands
Red fingernails clawing for the dust
Burnt Offerings
Violent winds take the ashes to the sea
Will you remember me?

A last kiss in a bleak wintry night
All golden visions overcast
Whispered words – like a litany of death

Gone forever – the secrets that i do not know
Gone forever – expectations were too high

Your eyes are gazing at the wilderness
Burnt Offerings
Running through immaculate hands
Red fingernails clawing for the dust
Burnt Offerings
Violent winds take the ashes to the sea
Will you remember me?

All hope put to an end, nothing left to defend
The flowers of spring will bloom again
But we won‘t meet again
Track Name: Enigma
A frozen smile – perfection without emotion
She‘s trapped in herself
She has never been free
Oh how hard she tries to break free from these ties

She gives it all – for one moment in time
On top of the world – for one moment in time

She‘s lost in reverie – in the eye of the storm
Passing on through the gate
She bursts into flames
She pulls the strings, devotion breaks the ties

She gives it all – for one moment in time
On top of the world – for one moment in time

Black lips caressing her soul
The focused mind loses control
Succumbing to the dangerous charm
She‘s falling into Enigma
She burns – like a torch in the wind
She cries – possession in her eyes
Tears of relief she cries
But she has gone too far

As she crosses the line
She knows there‘s no return
The burdens of life lose their weight
And her heart opens wide
As flesh and soul unite
She‘s free – for one moment in time
Track Name: Au Revoir
So much more had i given you
A thousand things to tell you
That you don‘t wanna hear
Every moment I‘d share with you
Take you in my arms – but you want to be free

Stormy skies – as I look into your eyes

Have mercy! I feel the blade of the guillotine
Just don‘t say those heavy words to me

Au Revoir
C‘est la dernière fois
You took me to heaven and back
C‘est la dernière fois
You‘re tearing out my heart
C‘est la dernière fois
You pushed me into the flames
C‘est la dernière fois
Life changes in the glimpse of an eye

You don‘t answer my calls
I knock – you‘re not at home
Seems like you disappeared
I didn‘t see it coming
A day without tomorrow
When you said Au Revoir

Stormy skies – as I look into your eyes
Have mercy! I feel the blade of the guillotine
Just don‘t say those heavy words to me

Au Revoir
C‘est la dernière fois
You took me to heaven and back
C‘est la dernière fois
You‘re tearing out my heart
C‘est la dernière fois
You pushed me into the flames
C‘est la dernière fois
Life changes in the glimpse of an eye
Track Name: Axe in Hand
Axe in Hand
She‘s a killer on the loose
Fighting for freedom
Axe in Hand – slaying to survive

Riding in thunder, crying in the rain
Over misty mountain tops
Through endless desert plains
Lonely nights – haunting dreams
Memories of the past
Thirsting for revenge
And hungry for love

First she gives, then she takes
Day and night, night and day
Taking the evil away

Axe in Hand
She‘s the last of her kind
Burning like fire
Axe in Hand – slaying to survive

The will is strong, the sacrifice is great
Mother of a new age, inferior to none
Giving life – taking life – she‘s in command
Heading for the horizon
The sun, the moon and the stars

First she gives, then she takes
Day and night, night and day
Taking the evil away

Steel-clad savage queen, ridin‘ on and on
She wants to love, but she will kill again
Axe in Hand
Track Name: Misery
I‘ve been caught by the hands of evil
Living at the mercy of your will
Blinded by the shape of seduction
Now is see clear, but it‘s just too late
It‘s just too late

Don‘t need no rules, no law, no chains
Don‘t wanna live in a maze with no way out
Wherever I go – chained to you
Whatever I do – chained to you

Leave me alone with your bad temper
That‘s not the price I want to pay for love
Twist my words, take your laurel wreath
Drink my blood from your golden chalice
It‘s just too late

Don‘t need no rules, no law, no chains
Don‘t wanna live in a maze with no way out
Wherever I go – chained to you
Whatever I do – chained to you

Misery – stop this game, release me
Misery – I cannot love you, set me free!

Behind your glittering facade
Lies a cold, cold dungeon wall
A strange kind of love, too hard to take
Chained to you in Misery
It‘s just too late
Track Name: Midnight Angel
Skyline – like a castle wall
Dawn to dusk pulling the plough
Steel and glass like a graven image
Inside heart‘s beating at the rhythm of the clock

Let‘s have a ride on your wings
Let‘s have a ride into tomorrow

As the final courtain falls
I will meet my fate in your arms
Take me alive – Midnight Angel

Sad eyes, livin‘ in a trap
Procession to the temples of success
Enslaved hulls, working day and night
Adapted dreams just to fit in these narrow minds

Let‘s have a ride on your wings
Let‘s have a ride into tomorrow

As the final courtain falls
I will meet my fate in your arms
Take me alive
Too soon – too late – to you
Midnight Angel of my dreams
Take me away to another life
Take me away!

Let‘s have a ride on your wings
Let‘s have a ride into tomorrow
Take me away!
And if the sun melts the wax
May the clouds catch our fall
I‘m your‘s tonight

Midnight Angel
From high above you reach down for my hand
Midnight Angel
On soaring wings you take me to release
Midnight Angel
Onward! Into the golden dawn
Midnight Angel
A burning heart, the future in your hands

Together as one
Track Name: Metal Obsession
Cloaked in red, white and black
The screaming axes attack tonight
Together accepting the eucharist of steel

Wielding sceptres, metal blades
You are stricken by might tonight
Want it hard, want it fast
From the first row to the last

Masses rave in ecstasy
Heel-slaves praying on their knees
Sweating flesh, left and right
Metal Obsession takes over tonight

Opening up the gates of hell
Heat and fire taking over tonight
High voltage, fists of fury
Striking heatwave sets the stage on fire

Masses rave in ecstasy
Heel-slaves praying on their knees
Sweating flesh, left and right
Metal Obsession takes over tonight
Track Name: The Touch
Is it heaven or is it hell?
I‘m in the grip of the heeling spell
Your eyes like fire, in for the fight
I‘m hooked on you – give me tonight!

Still waters running deep
My pulse is running hot
Your lips move, my heart’s in a rush
I don‘t care ‘bout words – I wanna touch!

You‘ve stricken me down
Still I’m hot on the heels of love
No chance for romance
You’re like a fist in a velvet glove

Your touch burns, your heel turns
Out of sight
You’re so vain, too wild to tame
The touch of the heeling bride

Your hard stepping heel
Tears my heart apart
Just like deep cutting steel – your love bites

You‘ve stricken me down
Still I’m hot on the heels of love
No chance for romance
You’re like a fist in a velvet glove

Your touch burns, your heel turns
Out of sight
You’re so vain, too wild to tame
The touch of the heeling bride

As your touch burns my skin
I feel the fire within
You‘re so vain, too wild too tame
You know your game

Give me tonight – feels like all that i ever wanted
Give me tonight – just a taste of paradise
Give me tonight – feels like all that i ever wanted

Your love bites, baby – tonight!
Track Name: (The Rise and Fall of the) Iron Torpedo
Off the shore, into the deep
Passing the gate to another world
Autarkic cosmos beyond the veil
20.000 leagues beneath they sail

Wreaking havoc with iron fist
Cruise control to nemesis
Creeping speed, iron keel
Cut the sea like stainless steel

Iron Torpedo
The scourge of the seven seas
Body cracks, steel sinks
Doom of the sailor

Noble heart but twisted mind
Retribution drives him wild
Out for blood, hunts ‘em down
Revenge tastes sweet, but lets him drown

Arising from the fathomless depths
Metal-plated, forge-welded
Terror’s on the loose – crosses your way
Two dire eyes tracking their prey
