Wheels of Fire

  Since the dawn of time 
  I've rolled across the earth 
  Spinning in the dust 
  Long before your birth 
  Eatin' tar and gasoline 
  Every light I see is green 
  Open pipes, my machines's triple-plated chrome 
  
  Spirit of the wheel! 
  
  Wheels of fire burn the night 
  Ride across the sky 
  Wheels of fire burning bright 
  We live to ride! 
  
  Motors running 
  Now you're gonna learn 
  Waitin on the line 
  Make your tires burn 
  Fast, faster,faster,faster 
  Speeding always kills 
  Nothing else takes us to get these thrills 
  
  Spirit of the wheel! 
  
  Wheels of fire burn the night 
  Ride across the sky 
  Wheels of fire burning bright 
  We live to ride! 
  
  Blood and thunder on the road 
  My heart is pounding 
  My blood is nitroglycerine 
  I'm fire 
  Burning,burning,burning,burning 
  Ready to explode 
  Don't want nothing left of me to scrape off the road 
  
  Spirit of the wheel! 
  
  Wheels of fire burn the night 
  Ride across the sky 
  Wheels of fire burning bright 
  We live to ride! 
  
  Clouds of smoke 
  Tires screaming 
  Fire in my hair 
  Blown into a thousand pieces 
  Scattered everywhere 
  Fast,burn,burning,faster 
  Wanna take a ride 
  Spirit of the wheel 
  Wheels of fire ride 
  
  Spirit of the wheel! 
  
  Wheels of fire burn the night 
  Ride across the sky 
  Wheels of fire burning bright 
  We live to ride!

Kings of Metal

Manowar Manowar living on the road
When we're in town speakers explode
We don't attract wimps 'cause we're too loud
Just true metal people that's manowar's crowd

They wanna keep us down
But they can't last
When we get up we're gonna kick your ass
Gonna keep on burnin'
We always will
Other bands play manowar kill!
Other bands play manowar kill!

We like it hard, we like it fast
We got the biggest amps, man they blast
True metal people wanna rock not pose
Wearin' jeans and leather, not cracker jack clothes

They wanna keep us down
But they can't last
When we get up we're gonna kick your ass
Gonna keep on burnin'
We always will
Other bands play Manowar kill!
Other bands play Manowar kill!

We're the kings of metal commin' to town
When we light up, have the roof nailed down
Don't try to tell us that we're too loud
'cause there ain't no way that we'll ever turn down

They wanna keep us down
But they can't last
When we get up we're gonna kick your ass
Gonna keep on burnin'
We always will
Other bands play Manowar kill!

Heart of Steel

Build a fire a thousand miles away 
to light my long way home 
I ride a comet 
My trail is long to stay 
Silence is a heavy stone 
I fight the world and take all they can give 
There are times my heart hangs low 
Born to walk against the wind 
Born to hear my name 
No matter where I stand I'm alone... 

Stand and fight 
Live by your heart 
Always one more try 
I'm not afraid to die 
Stand and fight 
Say what you feel 
Born with a heart of steel! 

Burn the bridge behind you 
Leave no retreat 
There's only one way home 
Those who laugh and crowd the path 
and cut each other's throats 
Will fall like melting snow 
They'll watch us rise with fire in our eyes 
They'll bow their heads 
Their hearts will hang low 
Then we'll laugh and they will kneel 
and know this heart of steel was 
Too hard to break 
Too hard to hold... 

Stand and fight 
Live by your heart 
Always one more try 
I'm not afraid to die 
Stand and fight 
Say what you feel 
Born with a heart of steel!

Sting of the Bumblebee

Instrumental

The Crown and the Ring

From a battle I've come
  To a battle I ride
  Blazing up to the sky
  Chains of fate
  Hold a fiery stride
  I'll see you again when I die
  
  High and mighty alone we are kings
  Whirlwinds of fire we ride
  Providence brought us the crown and the ring
  Covered with blood and our pride
  
  Heroes await me
  My enemies ride fast
  Knowing not this ride's their last
  Saddle my horse as I drink my last ale
  Bow string and steel will prevail
   
  High and mighty alone we are kings
  Whirlwinds of fire we ride
  Providence brought us the crown and the ring
  Covered with blood and our pride
  
  Odin, I await thee
  Your true son am I
  I hail you now as I die
  I pledge you my sword and to no man I kneel
  Ours is the kingdom of steel
  
  High and mighty alone we are kings
  Whirlwinds of fire we ride
  Providence brought us the crown and the ring
  Covered with blood and our pride

Kingdom Come

See the white light 
The light within 
Be your own disciple 
Fan the sparks of will 
For all of us waiting 
Our kingdom has come 

Rays of power shinning 
Rays of magic fall 
On the golden voice that speaks within us all 
For all of us waiting 
Your kingdom will come 

Kingdom Come! 

Feel the white light 
The light within 
Yea it burns a fire that drives a man to win 
For all of us waiting 
Your kingdom will come 

Kingdom Come! 

Words of power 
Calling to us all 
Holding us together while other kingdoms fall 
No longer waiting 
Our kingdom has come 

Kingdom Come! 

Kingdom comming 
Another kingdom falls 
The rightful are waiting 
But all are not rightful 
Wait and receive the weight of the fall 

Kingdom Come!

Hail and Kill

Brothers I am calling from the valley of the kings
With nothing to atone
A dark march lies ahead, together we will ride
Like thunder from the sky!
May your sword stay wet like a young girl in her pride
Hold your hammers high!

Blood and death are waiting like a raven in the sky
I was born to die
Hear me while I live
As I look into your eyes
None shall hear a lie
Power and dominion are taken by the will
By divine right hail and kill!

Hail, hail, hail and kill, hail and kill!
Hail, hail, hail and kill, hail and kill!

My father was a wolf
I'm a kinsman of the slain
Sworn to rise again
I will bring salvation, punishment and pain
The hammer of hate is our faith
Power and dominion are taken by the will
By divine right hail and kill!

Hail, hail, hail and kill, hail and kill!
Hail, hail, hail and kill, hail and kill!

Rip their flesh
Burn their hearts
Stab them in the eyes
Rape their women as they cry
Kill their servants
Burn their homes
Till there's no blood left to spill
Hail and kill
Power and dominion are taken by the will
By divine right hail and kill!

Hail, hail, hail and kill, hail and kill!

The Warrior's Prayer

- Grand father, tell me a story!
- All right, go and get your storybook
- No, no, not one of those, a real story
- A real story?
- Yes! Tell me about when you were a boy.
- Well, then, I shall have to take you back with me, a long way in time...

It was my thirteenth year on a cold winter's day,
as I walked through the enchanted forest, I heard
the sounds of horses and men at arms. I felt compelled
to walk on and find the place of these sounds.
And when the forest did clear I was standing on a hill.
Before me there was a great plane, atoned the armies of the world, standing, waiting.
I thought to myself, for whom or for what are they waiting? Suddenly a gust of wind
come up from the north There appeared a lone rider, holding a sword of steel.
Then from the south came another, bearing a battle axe. From the east came a
third, holding a spiked club, and finally, from the west a rider who wielded a great hammer of war.
With them came their soldiers of death, followed by an army of immortals. They were few in number,
but the look in their eyes told all who beheld them that they would leave this day only in victory or death.
And there was a great silence...
My heart began to pound, storm clouds filled the sky with darkness.
Rain came and four winds blew with such anger that
I held fast to a tree. I watched the four riders raise their weapons into the air.
Without warning, screaming their war cry they led the attack. Down to the battle they ride.
They met the armies of the world with a mighty clash!
I could feel the groundshake, the earth drank much blood that day. Each of the four, was into himself a whirlwind of doom !!!
When the smoke did clear, many thousands were dead. There was much blood and gore.
Their bodies lay broken and scattered across the battle field, like brown leaves blown by the wind.
And I saw the for ride together to the top of the hill, while below them the soldiers of death assembled
all those who would now swear allegiance to them.
And the four spoke the words of the warriors prayer. - Gods of war I call you, my sword is by my side. I seek a life of honor free from all false pride. I will crack the whip with a bold mighty hail. Cover me with death if I should ever fail. Glory, Majesty, Unity - Hail, Hail, Hail And as I stood and looked on, I heard the armies of the world hail them without end, and their voices of victory carried long and fat throughout the land! - Well, That's it. Did you like the story? - Yeah, it was great! - Oh, good, I'm glad. Now off to bed with you. - Yes? - Who were those four men? - Who were they? They were the Metal Kings!!!!!

Pleasure Slave

She is waiting to kiss my hand
But she will wait for my command
My chains and collar brought her to her knees
She now is free to please

Woman, be my slave
That's your reason to live
Woman, be my slave
The greatest gift I can give
Woman, be my slave

Before her surrender she had no life
Now she's a slave, not a wife
Her only sorrow is for women who live with lies
She's taken off her disguise

Woman, be my slave
That's your reason to live
Woman, be my slave
The greatest gift I can give
Woman, be my slave

Your body belongs to me
Woman, come here
Remove your garments
Kneel before me
Please me

Woman, be my slave
That's your reason to live
Woman, be my slave
The greatest gift I can give
Woman, be my slave
