Longboats have been sighted the evidence of war has begun

Many Nordic fighting men their swords and shields all gleam in the sun

Call to arms defend yourselves get ready to stand and fight for your lives

Judgement day has come around so be prepared don't run stand your ground

They're coming in from the sea

they've come the enemy

beneath the blazing sun

the battle has to be won

Invaders ... Pillaging

Invaders ... Looting

Set ablaze the campfires alert the other men from inland

Warning must be given there's not enough men here for a stand

The Vikings are too many much too powerful to take on our own

We must have reinforcements we cannot fight this battle alone

They're coming over the hill

they've come to attack

they're coming in for the kill

there's no turning back

Invaders ... Fighting

Invaders ... Marauding

Axes grind and maces clash as wounded fighters fall to the ground

Severed limbs and fatal woundings bloody corpses lay all around

The smell of death and burning flesh the battle weary fight to the end

The Saxons have been overpowered victims of the mighty Norsemen

You'd better scatter and run

the battle's lost and not won

you'd better get away to fight another day

Invaders ... Raping

Invaders ... Plundering


Children of the Damned


He's walking like a small child

But watch his eyes burn you away

Black holes in his golden stare

God knows he wants to go home

Children of The Damned

(repeat another 3 times)

He's walking like a dead man

If he had lived he would have crucified us all

Now he's standing on the last step

He thought oblivion well it beckons us all

Children of The Damned

(repeat another 3 times)

Now it burns his hand he's turning to laugh

Smiles as the flame sears his flesh

Melting his face screaming in pain

Peeling the skin from his eyes

Watch him die according to plan

He's dust on the ground what did we learn

You're Children of The Damned

Your back's against the wall

You turn into the light

You're burning in the night

You're Children of The Damned

Like candles watch them burn

Burning in the light

You'll burn again tonight

You're Children of The Damned


The Prisoner


On the run kill to eat

You're starving now you're dead on your feet

Going all the way nature's beast

Do what I want as I please

Run fight to breathe it's tough

Now you see me now you don't

Break the walls I'm coming out

Not a prisoner I'm a free man

And my blood is my own now

Don't care where the past was

I know where I'm going ... out

If you kill me it's self defence

If I kill you then I call it vengeance

Spit in your eye I will defy

You'll be afraid when I call out your name

I'm not a number I'm a free man

I'll live my life how I want to

You'd better scratch me from your black book

Cos I'll run rings round you


22 Acacia Avenue

(the continuing saga of Charlotte the Harlot)


If you're feeling down depressed and lonely

I know a place where we can go

22 Acacia Avenue meet a lady that I know

So if you're looking for a good time

And you're prepared to pay the price

Fifteen quid is all she asks for

Everybody's got their vice

If you're waiting for a long time for the rest to do their piece

You can tell her that you know me and you might even get it free

So any time you're down the East End don't you hesitate to go

You can take my honest word for it she'll teach you more than you can know

Charlotte can't you get out from all this madness

Can't you see it only brings you sadness

When you entertain your men don't know the risk of getting disease

Some day when you're reaching the age of forty

I bet you'll regret the days when you were laying

Nobody then will want to know

You won't have any beautiful wares to show any more

22, the avenue that's the place where we all go

You will find it's warm inside the red light's burning bright tonight

Charlotte isn't it time you stopped this mad life

Don't you ever think about the bad times

Why do you have to live this way

Do you enjoy your lay or is it the pay

Sometimes when your strolling down the avenue

The way you walk it make men think of having you

When you're walking down the street

Everybody stops and turns to stare at you

Beat her mistreat her do anything that you please

Bite her excite her make her get down on her knees

Abuse her misuse her she can take all that you've got

Caress her molest her she always does what you want

You're running away don't you know what you're doing

Can't you see it'll lead you to ruin

Charlotte you've taken your life and you've thrown it away

You believe that because what you're earning

Your life's good don't you know that you're hurting

All the people that love you don't cast them aside

All the men that are constantly drooling

It's no life for you stop all that screwing

You're packing your bags and you're coming with me

The Number of the Beast


I left alone my mind was blank

I needed time to think to get the memories from my mind

What did I see can I believe that what I saw

that night was real and not just fantasy

Just what I saw in my old dreams were they

reflections of my warped mind staring back at me

Cos in my dreams it's always there the evil face that twists my mind

and brings me to despair

The night was black was no use holding back

Cos I just had to see was someone watching me

In the mist dark figures move and twist

was all this for real or some kind of hell

666 the Number of the Beast

Hell and fire was spawned to be released

Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised

as they start to cry hands held to the sky

In the night the fires burning bright

the ritual has begun Satan's work is done

666 the Number of the Beast

Sacrifice is going on tonight

This can't go on I must inform the law

Can this still be real or some crazy dream

but I feel drawn towards the evil chanting hordes

they seem to mesmerise me...can't avoid their eyes

666 the Number of the Beast

666 the one for you and me

I'm coming back I will return

And I'll possess your body and I'll make you burn

I have the fire I have the force

I have the power to make my evil take its course


Run to the Hills


White man came across the sea

Brought us pain and misery

Killed our tribes killed our creed

Took our game for his own need

We fought him hard we fought him well

Out on the plains we gave him hell

But many came too much for Cree

Oh will we ever be set free?

Riding through dustclouds and barren wastes

Galloping hard on the plains

Chasing the redskins back to their holes

Fighting them at their own game

Murder for freedom a stab in the back

Women and children and cowards attack

Run to the hills run for your lives

Run to the hills run for your lives

Soldier blue on the barren wastes

Hunting and killing their game

Raping the women and wasting the men

The only good Indians are tame

Selling them whisky and taking their gold

Enslaving the young and destroying the old

Run to the hills run for your lives

(repeat to end)




Shadows may hide you but also may be your grave

You're running today maybe tomorrow you'll be saved

You pray for daylight to save you for a while

You wonder if your children will face the killer's smile

Dead men -- tell no tales

In Gangland -- murder's up for sale

Dead men -- tell no tales

In Gangland -- where jail birds die

Face at the window leers into your own

But it's only your reflection still you tremble in your bones

How long can you hide? How long till they come?

A rat in a trap but you've got to survive

Once you were glad to be free for a while

The air tasted good and the world was your friend

Then came the day when the hard times began

Now your alone but alive for how long?

A knife at your throat another body on the pile

A contract to keep and it's service with a smile

Murder for vengeance or murder for gain

Death on the streets or a blackened out jail

Dead men -- tell no tales

In Gangland -- murder's up for sale

Dead men -- tell no tales

In Gangland -- where jail birds die

In Gangland you tell no tales


Hallowed Be Thy Name


I'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime

Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time

Cos at 5 o'clock they take me to the Gallows Pole

The sands of time for me are running low

When the priest comes to read me the last rites

I take a look through the bars at the last sights

Of a world that has gone very wrong for me

Can it be there's some sort of error

Hard to stop the surmounting terror

Is it really the end not some crazy dream

Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming

It's not so easy to stop from screaming

But words escape me when I try to speak

Tears they flow but why am I crying

After all I am not afraid of dying

Don't believe that there is never an end

As the guards march me out to the courtyard

Someone calls from a cell "God be with you"

If there's a God then why has he let me die?

As I walk all my life drifts before me

And though the end is near I'm not sorry

Catch my soul cos it's willing to fly away

Mark my words please believe my soul lives on

Please don't worry now that I have gone

I've gone beyond to see the truth

When you know that your time is close at hand

maybe then you'll begin to understand

Life down there is just a strange illusion.
