Where Eagles Dare

It's snowing outside, the rumbling sound
of engines roar in the night.
The mission is near, the confident men
are waiting to drop from the sky.

The Blizzard goes on but still they must fly.
No one should go where eagles dare.

Bavarian alps that lay all around,
they seem to stare from below.
The enemy lines a long time passed
are lying deep in the snow.

Into the night, they fall through the sky.
No one should fly where eagles dare.

They're closing in the fortress is near,
it's standing high in the sky.
The cable cars the only way in,
it's really impossible to climb.

They make their way, but maybe too late.
They've got to try to save the day.

The panicking cries, the roaring of guns,
are echoing all round the valley.
The mission complete, they make to escape
away from the Eagles Nest.

They dared to go, where no-one would try.
They chose to fly, where eagles dare.

Revelations

"O God of Earth and Altar,
Bow down and hear our cry,
Our earthly rulers falter,
Our people drift and die,
The walls of gold entomb us,
The swords of scorn divide,
Take not thy thunder from us,
But take away our pride."
(G.K Chesterton: English Hymnal)

Just a babe in a black abyss,
No reason for a place like this.
The walls are cold and souls cry out in pain.
An easy way for the blind to go,
A clever path for the fools who know.
The Secret of the Hangman
the smile on his lips.

The light of the Blind - you'll see,
The venom that tears my spine,
The Eyes of the Nile are opening - you'll see.

She came to me with a serpent's kiss,
As the Eye of the Sun rose on her lips.
Moonlight catches silver tears I cry.
So we lay in a black embrace,
And the Seed is sown in a holy place,
And I watched and I waited for the Dawn.

The light of the Blind - you'll see,
The venom that tears my spine,
The Eyes of the Nile are opening - you'll see.

Bind us all together,
Ablaze with Hope and Free.
No storm or heavy weather,
Will rock the boat you'll see.
The time has come to close your eyes,
And still the wind and rain.
For the one who will be King,
Is the Watcher in the Ring.
It is You.

Flight Of Icarus

As the sun breaks, above the ground,
An old man stands on the hill.
As the ground warms, to the first rays of light,
A birdsong shatters the still.

His eyes are ablaze,
See the madman in his gaze.

Fly, on your way, like an eagle,
Fly as high as the sun.
On your way, like an eagle,
Fly and touch the sun.

Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears,
Looks the old man in the eye.
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd,
"In the name of God my father I fly."

His eyes seem so glazed,
As he flies on the wings of a dream.
Now he knows his father betrayed.
Now his wings turn to ashes, to ashes his grave.

Fly, on your way, like an eagle,
Fly as high as the sun.
On your way, like an eagle,
Fly and touch the sun.

Die With Your Boots On

Another Prophet of Disaster,
Who says the ship is lost.
Another Prophet of Disater,
Leaving you to count the cost.
Taunting us with Visions,
Afflieting us with fear.
Predicting War for millions,
In the hope that one appears.

No point asking when it is,
No point asking who's to go.
No point asking what's the game,
No point asking who's to blame.
Cause if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die.
Cause if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die.

If you're gonna die, die with your boots on.
If you're gonna try, well stick around.
Gonna cry, just move along.
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die.

13 the Beast is Rising,
The Frenchmen did surmise.
Through earthquakes and starvation,
The Warlord will arise.
Terror, Death, Destruction,
Pour from the Eastern sands.
But the truth of all predictions,
Is always in your hands.

They died with their boots on,
Yes they died.
They died with their boots on.
We died - We died - We died.

No point asking when it is,
No point asking who's to go.
No point asking what's the game,
No point asking who's to blame.
Cause if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die.
Cause if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die.

If you're gonna die, die with your boots on.
If you're gonna try, well stick around.
Gonna cry, just move along.
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die.

The Trooper

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too.
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through.
So when you're waiting for the next attack,
You'd better stand, there's no turning back.

The Bugle sounds and the charge begins,
But on this battlefield no-one wins.
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath,
As I plunge on into certain death.

The horse he sweats with fear, we break to run.
The mighty roar of the Russian guns.
And as we race towards the human wall,
The screams of pain as my comrades fall.

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground,
And the Russians fire another round.
We get so near yet so far away,
We won't live to fight another day.

We get so close near enough to fight,
When a Russian gets me in his sights.
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow,
A burst of rounds take my horse below.

And as I lay there gazing at the sky,
My body's numb and my throat is dry.
And as I lay forgotten and alone,
Without a tear I draw my parting groan.

Still Life

Take a look in the pool and what do you see.
In the dark depths there, faces beckoning me.
Can't you see them it's plain for all to see.
They were there, oh I know you don't believe me.

Oh...I've never felt so strange.
But...I'm not going insane.

I've no doubt that you think I'm off my head.
You don't say, but it's in your eyes instead.
Hours I spend out just gazing into that pool,
Something draws me there,
I don't know what to do.

Oh...they drain my strength away.
Oh...they're asking me to stay.

Nightmares...spirit´s calling me.
Nightmares...they won't leave me be.

All my life's blood is slowly draining away,
And I feel that I'm weaker every day.
Somehow I know I haven't long to go,
Joining them at the bottom of the pool.

Now...I feel they are so near.
I...begin to see them clear.

Nightmares...coming all the time
Nightmares...Will give me peace of mind.

Now it's clear and I know what I have to do.
I must take you down there to look at them too.
Hand in hand then well jump right into the pool.
Can't you see, not just me they want you too.

Oh...we'll drown together.
It...will be forever.

Nightmares...forever calling me.
Nightmares...Now we rest in peace.

Quest For Fire

In a time when dinosaurs walked the earth.
When the land was swamp and caves were home.
In an age when prize possession was fire,
To search for landscapes men would roam.

Then the tribes they came to steal the fire,
And the wolves they howled into the night,
As they fought a vicious angry battle,
To save the power of warmth and light.

Drawn by Quest for fire,
They searched all through the land.
Drawn by Quest for fire,
Discovery of man.

And they thought that when the embers died away,
That the flame of life had burnt and died.
Didn't know the sparks that made the fire,
Were made by rubbing stick and stone.

So they ploughed through forest and swamps of danger,
And they fought the cannibal tribes and beasts.
In the search to find another fire,
To regain the power of light and heat.

Drawn by Quest for fire,
They searched across the land.
Drawn by Quest for fire,
Discovery of man.

Sun And Steel

You killed your first man at 13,
Killer instinct, Animal supreme.
By 16 you had learned to fight,
The way of the warrior, you took it as /brur right.

Sunlight, falling on your steel.
Death in life is your ideal.
Life is like a wheel.

Through earth and water, fire and wind,
You came at last - nothing was the end,
I´ll make a cut by fire and stones.
Take you and your blade, break you both in two
Break you both in two.

Sunlight, falling on your steel.
Death in life is your ideal.
Life is like a wheel.
Rolling on and on.

Sunlight, falling on your steel.
Death in life is your ideal.
Life is like a wheel.
And it´s rolling still.

To Time A Land

He is the King of all the land,
In the Kingdom of the sands,
Of a time tomorrow.

He rules the sandworms and the Fremen,
In a land amongst the stars,
Of an age tomorrow.

He is destined to be a King.
He rules over everything,
On the land called planet Dune.

Bodywater is your life,
And without it you would die,
In the desert the planet Dune.

Without a stillsuit you would fry,
On the sands so hot and dry,
In a world called Arrakis.

It is a land that's rich in spice,
The sandriders and the mice,
That they call the Muad Dib.

He is the Kwizatz Haderach,
He is born of Caladan,
And will take the Gom Jabbar.

He has the power to forsee,
Or to look into the past,
He is the ruler of the stars.

The time will come for him
to lay claim his crown,
And then the foe
yes they'll be cut down,
You'll see hell be
the best that there's been,
Messiah supreme,
true leader of men.
And when the time
for judgement's at hand,
Don't fret, he's strong,
hell make a stand,
Against evil, the fire,
that spreads through the land.
He has the power
to make it all end.
