Track Name: Running the Risk
I, alone on the road, master of the game
Change, for king and country, never to be the same

I'll cross the globe whilst dodging nightmares,
Chance the key to rid this world of hate,
And yet still I wonder, what's my fate?

Chorus:
Will they see me coming?
What can they do?
They'll never know the weight that I tow
The unbearable bliss of running the risk

Blood of my brothers, a lie the land of the free
Outlaw to my country, if only they could see

The more I fight, the more I witness
The more I see how deep the evil goes
It only serves to fuel my fire, and so it grows
Track Name: The Hound
When you face him, don’t draw your sword
Don’t meet his eye, he will strike you down

Born a killer, his only pleasure
Tyrant’s dog, slave to the crown

Little one,if you meet him,
What will you say? “All he knows is war”

The Hound
Is
At your door

(Chorus)
Sing me a song, little bird, little liar
Of death and war, and lives that expire
Tell me a tale, little wolf, little liar
Tell me of anything, anything but fire

And if the flames burn him away
What would you say? “He deserved to pay”

Twisted man, heartless, cruel
Drunken ass, always played the fool

What did you know? Could you be wrong?
What did he want? Only a song

The Hound
Is
No more

Sing me a song, little bird, little liar
Of death and war, and lives that expire
Tell me a tale, little wolf, little liar
Tell me of anything, anything but fire

I will see my brother die
I will see my brother die
I will see my brother die
I will see my brother die
Track Name: Midnight Sun
Flowers dying in the midnight sun
Women screaming "Darling, help me!"
People pray to The One
Crying out...

Nothing new will ever be
Scorch the Earth and all who doubt me
Skin is Burned, Third Degree
Yet we hold on...

Melt away, the sweat on my brow
Drag on forever, its all over now

We head North to no avail,
Only death awaits...

Summon the Spirit of Night again
Summon the Spirit of Night again,
The Desert of Snow, a sign of The End
Summon the Spirit of Night again

The sky explodes, The End is near
Inside I deny but its so crystal clear
Hell awaits, but I'm alive
Wait for me Satan, tonight I arrive
Track Name: Forbidden Fruit
Trading pleasure in for pain
Subject my mind and stake my claim
Knowledge sacred will obtain
Learn the words that shall remain
Forbidden

Elated in this holy hell
Tempted enough to compel
Nascience will bid farewell
So shall break this mortal spell
Forbidden

In the garden on the vine
Reach the fruit and reach divine
Man so feeble by design
Knowledge sacred will be mine
