Lyrics: Summon the fire of ages Quest for the power we ride Into the dark, the blackness of night Test of our valor and pride Sent by the call of the wind Justice is ours to command Serving the will of the gods Immortal with sword in hand We are redeemers of truth Vengeance is ours to uphold Wrought in the flames of the past Guarded by the righteous and bold Stronger in heart we have come All knowing the power we feel Enter the kingdom of fate We are the defenders of steel Burning the ground To show us the way All rise on this judgment day Ride! Freedom is calling Fight! Forever we are defending the king And the crown with steel Faith in steel ”Honor and courage are the ideals of your quest. Noble knights, fight for truth, for our kingdom may not carry on. Evil lurks beyond the horizon, but your faith in steel will secure your king's destiny...Ride fast!” A new age shall be reborn And the chained shall be free We have seen enough agony It's time to fly into the skies of your dreams... Burning the ground To show us the way All rise on this judgment day Ride! Freedom is calling Fight! Forever we are defending the king And the crown with steel Faith in steel Burning the ground To show us the way All rise on this judgment day Ride! Freedom is calling Fight! Forever we are defending the king And the crown with steel Faith in steel

Lyrics: I have journeyed light years from home Defending the galaxy Injustice enslaving my mind We must face the enemy Fighting in worlds so strange Landscapes of fire and ice Cosmos of terror beware Unite or we all pay the price Reach for the light on your way to the sun Fight for the honor, let justice be done No turning back, we are storming the winds On this endless night The end is near Now wait for the sky to reveal Your sacred ride to follow Gaze through the storm You will see The cosmic winds are calling me Blood, fire, hell is here Fear the evil race Give me strength to carry on The fury of planets collide The wormholes will trap us in time On wings that will carry me through And stars that will serve as my guide Dimensions of space-time I ride Living on the edge of death Traveling at light speeds so fast Hold on to every last breath Reach for the light on your way to the sun Fight for the honor, let justice be done No turning back, we are storming the winds On this endless night The end is near Now wait for the sky to reveal Your sacred ride to follow Gaze through the storm You will see The cosmic winds are calling me The end is near Now wait for the sky to reveal Your sacred ride to follow Gaze through the storm You will see The cosmic winds are calling me Gaze through the storm You will see The cosmic winds are calling me

Lyrics: We traveled so far Through space and time As I greet the coming day I know that I was blind Memories they come and go Vanishing into the night and I Look inside to find the truth Searching for the light Burning hearts Rise with the sun Joining together we are one Souls of truth Stand and believe Forever triumphant we'll be Now walking alone The wind in my face Emotions by my side That I shall embrace A call to the heavens A cry from my soul I live in the moment While time takes its toll Burning hearts Rise with the sun Joining together we are one Souls of truth Stand and believe Burning hearts Rise with the sun Joining together we are one Souls of truth Stand and believe Forever triumphant we'll be

Lyrics: This driving force I have inside It lets my dreams forever guide Can't live no more with this reality On golden wings I will defy This savage world condemned to die My soul will live for all eternity Somehow my consciousness was born Senses unite and now I know Feel the strength within me I'll create my destiny Heart of dreams Guide me on The future waits to be It's up to me Heart of dreams Living the way that I want I will set my spirit free Night after night, dreaming again, still searching Rising purely to the source of light Realize the truth and don't look back, flame burning There's a meaning and it's always in sight Search deep inside of yourself Hope a new age will reveal Sometimes it's hard to follow your way And never to give in Better to try than just fade away... There is no choice Somehow my consciousness was born Senses unite and now I know Feel the strength within me I'll create my destiny Heart of dreams Guide me on The future waits to be It's up to me Heart of dreams Living the way that I want I will set my spirit free

Lyrics: You can't deny Voices deep within Fierce is the blade that stands in your way Bound by misfortune to lead you astray Right of the chosen to search for a brighter day You have seen your last tomorrow Now I shall return From the ashes of the fallen I shall be reborn As I ride across this wasteland I will stain with blood and rage Till the glory is restored I am a warrior forlorn Reach for my hand You will see the light Gods of the earth have blessed you my friend Break out from the chains you are free once again Rise on the mountain and wait for your soul to ascend You have seen your last tomorrow Now I shall return From the ashes of the fallen I shall be reborn As I ride across this wasteland I will stain with blood and rage Till the glory is restored I am a warrior forlorn And all together We'll keep the flame alive By fire and blood I'll live...again!

Lyrics: Time, where are you now? Why can't I find? Are you the essence of change in my mind? Doesn't life feel prearranged, Destined to make me choose? But I believe I will to be Seeing through the eyes of time Uncover secrets of history Experience a state of mind Living for eternity Seeing through the eyes of time Feel the pain of so many years Searching for what you'll never find Learning to fight back your tears No turning back Never to see What lies in the hands of your own destiny And life is so strange The eyes of time are watching me But I believe I will to be Seeing through the eyes of time Uncover secrets of history Experience a state of mind Living for eternity Seeing through the eyes of time Feel the pain of so many years Searching for what you'll never find Learning to fight back your tears Seeing through the eyes of time Uncover secrets of history Experience a state of mind Living for eternity Seeing through the eyes of time Feel the pain of so many years Searching for what you'll never find Learning to fight back your tears

Lyrics: My travels through lands of peril and fear I feel the end of my worries is near And now with the time, I gaze towards the sky To think of the way that my life has passed by The mysteries of life and reality Have started to form and consume all of me I live through the night with every bright star And realize the answers might lie somewhere far This moment won’t last forever I hope it will stay in my thoughts and my heart To look at the heavens and think we’re alone The mystery lives on, for no one knows... These stars so bright and far away What I’m feeling it’s hard for me to say All I know is until my final day I will search for the truth of the mystic star This moment won’t last forever I hope it will stay in my thoughts and my heart To look at the heavens and think we’re alone The mystery lives on, for no one knows... These stars so bright and far away What I’m feeling it’s hard for me to say All I know is until my final day I will search for the truth of the mystic star

Lyrics: Knowing no sorrow or fear Judged by his spirit The last rite is here From the dark the pure have survived The age of enlightenment Now has arrived Searching for signs to show him the way A call from within To rise on this day One soul in this perilous fight To strike at the heart Of the enemy's might Hellish lands burning his mind The fate of the world The hope of mankind Now witness the grand final stand All is his choice His will to command! Riding with forces of old The alliance reborn again The story is told Why do we listen to a crowd of fools, Always choosing what others would want? Inside my mind the demons arise My soul bleeding for retribution The light that shines in my eyes Spirit show me the way Guiding me from the lies To live another day Throughout the years so many in pain Far too long we failed to see Those who love the power they wield Why all this need for persecution? The light that shines in my mind Path I walk alone Search for freedom my guide Can't wait another day On this journey of life I seek to find my destiny I hear it calling, calling out for me... Fear surrounds the world I see Ignorant bliss all that they know Persevere through chaos Reach for wisdom deep in my soul Faith and reason co-exist Learn to think, I shall not be blind What they choose to criticize Really what they choose to hide behind Now at last the time has come When we die where do we go? Seeking hope in desperation Promises are false contentment Will the soul endure it's forsaken fate To break from bone and flesh? Reach it's final destination, Will we know? As I ride on the river of time Memories flooding my dreams Trust in that which insight reveals Flame of truth set us free The light that shines in my eyes Spirit show me the way Guiding me from the lies To live another day Plural minds in a world of disguise Separate thoughts, subjective ideals Appearances we take for the truth Is our essence a higher reality? The light that shines in my mind Path I walk alone Search for freedom my guide Can’t wait another day "At last we have ventured through timeless ages in a quest for truth. While fighting to seek answers to life's epic questions, we abandoned the lies of others to discover our own way. We have broken the will of the weak-minded deceivers and thus have strengthened our own. We are the chosen ones. Our essence will burn on in the glorious flames of eternity!"
