Track Name: Alliance (feat. Ross the Boss)
Ten years ago we made a commitment
And now we will see what it still means for us
Unspoken you know that I would defend you
By all of my forces and all that I have to fight

Alliance - Together we ride through the storm
Alliance - Together we rise or we fall

In my darkest hour will you stand by my side?
Will you fight by my side for me?
Without a condition, envy or price
Stand by my side and give me advice

Alliance - Together we ride through the storm
Alliance - Together we rise or we fall

Only the darkness will forever be
And in the end we all die alone

Look in my eyes and say what you see
I've my own life near on the edge

So I can't promise whatever will be
Life is erratic and all can change soon

It needs just a second to turn your world black
And only the darkness will forever be

In my darkest hour will you stand by my side?
Will you fight by my side with me?
Surrounded by darkness we search for the light
But the next set back could be the last

Alliance - Together we ride through the storm
Alliance - Together we rise or we fall

It’s harder to breathe the air is now thin
But we must go on and keep our heads high
Whatever will be, we try to defy
Determination keeps us alive

Alliance - Together we ride through the storm
Alliance - Together we rise or we fall

Alliance!
Track Name: Fort Sumter
In South Carolina we've heard the first shot
Here at Fort Sumter they try to defend
Chanceless they had to surrender the fort

CHORUS:
We lead the rebellion
'Cause they won't leave us alone
This is our ground
We will take it back

It's our first victory of many to come
We are calling for war under God
Pushing them backward into the north

REPEAT CHORUS (2x)

We are outnumbered but fight for the cause
Teach them to run, run to DC
Determination, let them feel the fear

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Die In A Hole
Water streams in masses
Flooding into this cave
We are not prepared to die

There is no way up
We must dive deep into the unknown
Fight against the tide

Blood and desperation
Nature's force in action
We try to escape and survive

CHORUS
Survive or die - It’s us against the time
Survive or die - In this hole
Survive or die - It’s us against the time
Survive or die - In this hole

Our instinct pushes us through
Tiny holes and chambers
Where no one has been before

These might be the final minutes
Diving, climbing
Where no one has died before

I saw others dying
Knowing I am next
Unless I find a way to survive

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Curse of Genevieve (reworked)
I'm dreaming the same dream again and again
I'm dreaming of a woman, but I can't see her face
I know something terrible will happen
Because at the end of the dream I always die

Fate or the curse has brought us together
But I couldn't know what awaits me

I felt the magic she revealed her nature
Her family is different they are “casters”

At the age of sixteen is her judgment day
She will remain good or she will turn dark

But bound to a curse desperation comes closer
She feels herself drifting into darker thoughts

CHORUS
Will the curse of Genevieve
Lead us into death or glory?
Judgment day will come so soon
Darkness could take all of our dreams
When we do not find a way
More than one could die
Humanity as we know it
Could come to a bloody end

To break the curse a loved one has to die
Through my own hand oh please god why?
Tell me, what shall, what shall I do?

That one tragic night was fulfilled with love
And anger and hate let's wave goodbye

The mystical end is now drawing close
Between darkness and light, you have to choose

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Future Secret
None can charge us for the things that we do
With freedom on our side, no one can rule us
We are heading for the moon
Where the glory will await us

And they know that no chain can hold us
We are no longer bound to this ground
No one can stop us, nor prevent us from this
We know what we do and know how to play

CHORUS
Belief is the fuel that moves us ​on
It’s the cause of our existence, our motivation
The magic force that drives us higher ​every day
Until we turn the world upside down

Our belief is what makes us strong
It’s the only reason we still exist
We are unique, not like anyone else
Few in number but many more soon

As our spirit is spreading like wind
The old structure will fall someday
We are here to build the future
With each and every devotee

REPEAT CHORUS

If we lose all we ever had
Our hearts are filled with metal and pride
There is never an easy way through
Mental strength is the key to succeed

No matter how long it will take
Time will prove our perseverance
No matter how hard it will be
In the end, we’ll be stronger than all!
Track Name: Operation Focus
Monday morning June the 5th
Operation Focus, they start the war
With no sounds of peace
Today is a tactical race

Air superiority
Is what they all fighting for here

CHORUS
Turn around, refuel and fight
Deadly speed on the ground and the air
Turn around, refuel and fight

Nassar didn’t expect
And was not prepared
For the surprise attack
On his own ground
The air bases burn
No time to react
The next wave comes
Decimating the air force

Air superiority
Is what they all fighting for here

Turn around, refuel and fight
Deadly speed on the ground and the air
Turn around, refuel and fight

Turn around, refuel and fight
Deadly speed on the ground and the air
Turn around, refuel and fight
Just one day to secure the skies
Turn around, refuel and destroy

This airspace dominance
Will seal their fate
Just a few days more of fight
'Till full retreat!
Track Name: The Warning (Until Blood Boils, pt.I)
What I saw it turned my soul to black
My fear it was replaced by hate
Slowly growing, there's no way ever back
The pictures I can’t ever forget
The desire to make him pay
The rage that comes into my mind...

And now it is time for the revenge
Track Name: The Revenge (Until Blood Boils, pt.II)
My blood is burning and I see just red
The day of revenge it has arrived

I’ll be the one to bring you the end
Of your life and your soul
For all of your sins, you must stand straight
Pay in blood and in pain
What you deserve is suffering and death
For your crimes die alone

Cry Cry Cry Die Die Die!

My blood is burning and I see just red
The day of revenge it has arrived

And now you beg for mercy
Like your victim did before
And I laugh just like you
The sweet smell of justice, your rotting flash
Smashing bones, endless cries
There is a place for you deep down in hell
I will fight for the good

Cry Cry Cry Die Die Die!

My blood is burning and I see just red
The day of revenge it has arrived

Cry! Die! Cry! Die Die Die!
Track Name: Day of Collapse
People are crying and run in the street
No one knows for certain just what happen here
We look to the sky, that turned into flame
Smoke and destruction, are we at war?

CHORUS
200,000 tons of steel - Collapsed on that day
200,000 tons of steel - Fallen to the ground
200,000 tons of steel - Crushed to the earth

The steel-house is burning now live on TV
Rumors an airplane or was it a bomb?
A second explosion, again in the sky
And now we perceive, it’s all by design

The impact we see so hard to believe
Floor after floor it crumbles so fast
In seconds the tower has fallen to dust
So many died, it’s not over yet

REPEAT CHORUS

The south tower is down, his brother still there
How long will it last until the collapse?
Into certain death they jump from above
Like in a movie but real and much worse

With destructive sound it finally breaks down
In sunshine we see a dark crawling cloud
The city is covered in ash and black dust
Who takes the blame for this hateful act?

REPEAT CHORUS
