Lyrics:
House Of Sleep

I will never sleep alone
(Never without you)
Whatever you say to me
I already know
If I said something to you
You would take those words
There's so much power in those words

You don't know
You don't know nothing yet
About the dreams I have
I will make you sleep
You don't know
You don't know nothing yet
About the dreams I have
Sleep is a house for lovers

You will be the mistress of that house
You will be given the wide belt
And the big key to the gate
If I said something to you
You would take those words
There's so much power in those words

You don't know
You don't know nothing yet
About the dreams I have
I will make you sleep
You don't know
You don't know nothing yet
About the dreams I have
Sleep is a house for lovers

You don't know
You don't know nothing yet
About the dreams I have
I will make you sleep
You don't know
You don't know nothing yet
About the dreams I have

"There are countries where you just disappear if you speak your mind. These are intolerable conditions. But I’m not backing down. I’ve always been a rebel, I don’t want to conform. And I don’t have to play in certain countries either. It’s that simple". - Mat Sinner

"The way the culture of having discussions with each other has gone down the drain, has become unbearable. People tend to have no more respect for each other and that's a dangerous development and perspective. It's the same sad development with all these 'keyboard warriors' out there who hide behind a made up user name to release their hate, jealousy or frustration. I will never take this as a "Welcome to the Internet" invitation, it's simply a NO GO!" - Ralf Scheepers

Lyrics:
Into the circus of life we were pushed out of nowhere
Growing, maturing and loving and hating the game
Saddle the horse for a future that’s basically unknown
We procreate, vitiate, twisting the facts without shame
Manipulating

There's only black and white, nothing in-between's accepted
Everyone is right, not a chance for tolerance

It’s the curse of a cancel culture
It’s the fall of democracy
When the witch-hunt has begun
And we gather around the funeral pyre
It’s the curse of a cancel culture
No way for adequate defense
On the streets it’s dog eats dog
Crucified and banned
The cancel culture

Bullying, mocking and hating and whataboutism
Using our consoles and keyboards like weapons in war
It seems like the web has become a place to release anger
For people who don’t have a life need to upfront
Wishful sensation

There's only black and white, nothing in-between's accepted
Everyone is right, not a chance for tolerance

It’s the curse of a cancel culture
It’s the fall of democracy
When the witch-hunt has begun
And we gather around the funeral pyre
It’s the curse of a cancel culture
No way for adequate defense
On the streets it's dog eat dog
Crucified and banned

The cancel culture
Talking about you
Writing about you
Around the clock
Jealousy is turning to hatred
And hatred is turning to frust

Forever and one, I will miss you
However I kiss you yet again
Way down in Neverland
So hard I was trying
Tomorrow, I'll still be crying
How could you hide your lies?
Your lies

Here I am, seeing you once again
My mind's so far away
My heart's so close to stay
Too proud to fight
I'm walking back into night
Will I ever find someone to believe?

Forever and one, I will miss you
However I kiss you yet again
Way down in Neverland
So hard I was trying
Tomorrow, I'll still be crying
How could you hide your lies?
Your lies

Forever and one, I will miss you
However I kiss you yet again
Way down in Neverland
So hard I was trying

Matt Smith:
"'Flicker' was one of the first tracks written for the "Mosaic" album. A fish-out-of-water tale of brutal honesty, the lyrics are a bit more straightforward and candid than usual from me, but that's what felt most authentic in the moment. Musically, it's aggressive, melodic, and fast, and sits somewhere slightly different for us, I think. It seemed like an obvious choice for opening track of the record."

Lyrics:
FLICKER

Sometimes I feel like I just don’t belong here
Like a shadow cast from a time long past
I’m swallowed up and dissipating

I feel so out of phase and so invisible
It’s disorienting, alienating
Little stranger, welcome to the world

Do you ever feel like you just don’t belong here?
Me I’ve always known this isn’t home
I’m starting to feel so disconnected
A stranger in a strange and growing ever stranger land
In a world that I don’t understand
So misdirected
Trapped inside a world that buried Mozart in a pauper’s grave
And said, “Give us Barabbas,”crucified Christ and turned away
Electing fools to lead us
Rejecting truth, see us spiraling down
Shall we enter the last days?

Out of place and out of time
Oh tell me what’s the value of a life
In a modern day and age where monsters cling to evil ways
I can’t shake the feeling I just don’t belong
But we flicker for a moment
Flicker for a moment, then we’re gone
I don’t belong here
I don’t belong here

Pleasure slaves indulging every manner of perversion
If technology’s the god we feed, our sacrifice is full submersion
Lifelong friendships ended over stupid politicians
All the rhetoric and superstitions
Life on a screen, a simulated world that buried Mozart in a pauper’s grave
And said, “Give us Barabbas,” crucified Christ and turned away
This world feels so synthetic
Lost apathetic
While tragedy vampires drink blood of the fallen

Out of place and out of time
Oh tell me what’s the value of a life
In a modern day and age where monsters cling to evil ways
I can’t shake the feeling I just don’t belong
But we flicker for a moment
Flicker for a moment, then we’re gone

Centuries of deep corruption led to compromise
Practicing a counterfeit morality, the great disguise and
I don’t belong here
I’m just a weary traveler
This world has lost sight of the value of a life

Out of place and out of time
Oh tell me what’s the value of a life
In a modern day and age where monsters cling to evil ways
I can’t shake the feeling I just don’t belong
But we flicker for a moment
Flicker for a moment, then we’re…

Matt comments: "“Mosaic” is one of my personal favorite Theocracy tracks of all time. At its heart it’s a throwback to the peak of power metal, a galloping and soaring singalong hymn. But it has everything I love about what we do: the melody, the power, the drama, the light and shade, the riffs. Conceptually, the song is about how we can only see the individual scenes of our lives, but lack the perspective to see the overall tapestry those scenes eventually combine to create. The good times, the bad times, the things we wish didn’t happen…they are all pieces that God uses to form whatever we eventually end up becoming. And we can certainly relate to that in our own journey as a band over the last few years. So there’s a little psychology, a lot of spirituality, a little nostalgia, and a healthy dose of wistfulness and wonder. And fittingly, this song takes you on a quite journey in just over five minutes."

Lyrics:
The Artisan designs
In a secret place
Moves with grace
Shifting seasons mark the time
As it comes and goes
With the wind that blows

And after all, the pieces fall
Landing where they may
You never left or chose to throw them all away
An unknown future, broken past
Like imperfect panes of glass
A window into the darkness

Picture perfect on the wall
I’m a step behind
Lost in time
My perspective ever flawed
Phantom imagery
Sensory
And after all, the pieces fall
Landing where they may
You never left or chose to throw them all away
An unknown future, broken past
Like imperfect panes of glass
Taking shape into something more

What a wonder, fireborn and unforsaken
Piece by broken piece to form
Unveiling this grand mosaic
Compositing the story of a life
Tonight
We are mosaic

Partial pages, scattered scenes
Nothing on their own
The great unknown
Blurry pictures on the screen
Focus pull unto
The master view

‘Cause after all, the pieces fall
Landing where they may
You never left or chose to throw us all away
An unknown future, broken past
Like imperfect panes of glass
Revealing the larger grand design

What a wonder, fireborn and unforsaken
Piece by broken piece to form
Unveiling this grand mosaic
Compositing the story of a life
Tonight
We are mosaic

(solo: Taylor)

Gallery, artistry
Mystery, great adventure
Mastery, harmony
History to remember
Like perspective of a woven tapestry
Shifting from the side we see

What a wonder, fireborn and unforsaken
Piece by broken piece to form
Unveiling this grand mosaic
Compositing the story of a life
Tonight
We are mosaic

"This song came to life very quickly. After I played around with the initial riff, all subsequent parts kind of naturally fell into place. It's a song full of dynamics and different textures, with a look to the future while we also nod to the past, especially in the middle section. Fabio did a brilliant job with the vocal lines and delivered a very inspired performance. The intro came about while I was working on some harmonies, then Fabio joined in and the magic happened." (Felipe Andreoli)

"The 'Tide Of Changes' lyrics were the first I wrote for the »Cycles Of Pain« album and portray exactly what the title denounces. We live in a moment of great instability and, while our ego seeks the comfort zone and control, it is fundamental to adapt to this impermanence, to surf the waves of destiny and not on our expectations. It's the pains and frustrations that shape and strengthen us, to the point where we can beat our chest and say: ‘Let the next wave of difficulties come. Want to take another piece of me? Come on, I've waited for this moment!'" (Rafael Bittencourt)

Lyrics:

TIDE OF CHANGES - PART I
If you'd go back in time for one single day
One tiny change in life and you wouldn't be the same
Oh, life is a tide of changes
Why a deed so small may affect it all
Mysteries that make me wonder
Oh, life is a tide of changes
Remember this


TIDE OF CHANGES - PART II
Here I am, torn down to pieces
And from where I stand
Rock bottom made me stronger
Even when the days seemed longer
For all kinds of stormy weather
I had enough
I had enough to make my fears my strength
And now you're back

To take another piece of me
Take another piece and think I’m falling
Take your chance I've waited for this moment
Take another piece of me
Take another piece of me, I’m warning
Take your chance I'm ready for this moment to rise again
I'll rise again

There I was
An ordinary man struggling to get along
I wonder where you were when I was
Breaking all the chains around me
Trying to find a place for myself in this world
And I can't wait to see you come again
To feel my fire

Just wanna take it, so take it
Take another piece of me
Take another piece and think I’m falling
Take your chance I've waited for this moment
Take another piece of me
Take another piece of me, I’m warning
Take your chance I'm ready for this moment to rise again
I'll rise again

Calm tide ahead
Strong tide ahead
When you think you know it
Life's a tide of changes!

(Salve, salve Iemanjá
Salve Janaína, e tudo que se fez n’água.
Jogue flores para o mar
Deus salve a rainha)

If you wanna take it
Take another piece of me
Take another piece and think I’m falling
Take your chance I've waited for this moment
Take another piece of me
Take another piece of me, I’m warning
Take your chance I'm ready for this moment to rise again
I'll rise again

Strong tide ahead

Guitarist Rafel Bittencourt:
"This video is a reflection about who we are really following as leaders and who we are unconsciously worshipping with our acts. People might believe that they worship God and follow specific values, but in reality they have other priorities such as work, social position, food, social media, pleasure etc. Our highest values play a very small part in the way we behave. Most of us in contemporary society are addicted to being connected to the internet, networks, and social media. An illness that has become normal. It all starts with the fact that most of our work and survival depends on it, and ends on the sense of emptiness and anxiety when our phones are off. That makes us all very passive to the influence of all sorts of truths being bombarded simultaneously through what we follow. While our brains are numb and receptive, we're commanded by external, also contradictory references. So the gods that rule the world nowadays are the chaos within our own habits, and we're confused searching for vain experiences to fulfill our lonely and empty souls."

GODS OF THE WORLD

You know we're not the same
No matter who's to blame
We're dreaming of a better world
Time for the human race
Don't give up in disgrace
Give meaning to your words

Words are lies
You know how well the story goes
They blind, blind your eyes
You fall in with the darkest minds

Gods of the world

You have to realize
Old heroes in disguise
No one is perfect in this world
They force us to divide
And all the cards they hide
So they have full control

Words are lies
You know how well the story goes
They blind, blind your eyes
You fall in with the darkest minds

Gods of the world
Control us all
They play your fortune in a game of rise and fall
And every minute
They call the shots
Marionettes under the strings of the gods
Gods of the world
Gods of the world

Words are crimes
The enemy's been idolized
Blind, blind your eyes
Sustaining all the darkest minds

Gods of the world
Control us all
They play your fortune in a game of rise and fall
And every minute
They call the shots
Marionettes under the strings of the gods
Gods of the world
Gods of the world
Gods of the world

Lyrics:
Paid In Full

I was nowhere near ready when all it ended
So I hoped we could find a new day, cannot live without you

You gave me the chance, time and again, in vain
Now my feelings for you, every tear, every smile, paid in full
Break the chain, but no longer can I take the pain

It's hard for me to love myself right now,
I've waited, hated, blamed it all on you

Needed to be strong, yet I was always too weak
So I can only blame myself for this state we are in
I will take what you have for me now, if it's not too late
Did you change? I did too. Love can grow from the last grain

It's hard for me to love myself right now,
I've waited, hated, blamed it all on...

You...
I need you...less and less...
Every day feeds this moral decay
Yet I have grown to love you even more

I fall back, and I turn another cheek.
You mouth the words you're not ready to speak
You're scared of me now; no I never had a clue
That I'd become so much stronger than you.

I will take - what you have - for me now, if it's not too late

If you like, I will leave; I will not miss the last train again

It's hard for me to love myself right now,
I've waited, hated, blamed it all on you...

It's hard for me to love your face right now
I'm waiting, hating, needing being

Me...
I need you...less and less...
Every day leads us farther away...
From that moment

It hard for me to hate myself right now
Finally I'm understanding me
One day we may have whole new me's and you's
But first I need to learn to love me too...

Guitarist Rafael Bittencourt explains: "'Vida Seca' means a lot to us in ANGRA because it expresses what we are: a metal band from Brazil. So the song is a combination of prog elements with Brazilian vibes. It is tough to create something meaningful and deep for the people without going deep into ourselves, and going deep also means reaching and accepting my background. I know it sounds odd for many traditional metal fans, but it wouldn't be honest from my side if I wasn't making music inspired by my surroundings, the people, the habits, the sounds. The song and the video 'Vida Seca' both have a little bit of all of that in a poetic yet truthful way, disclosing the discrepancy of Brazilian social dystopia. It's certainly one of my favourites of the album."

"'Vida Seca' is my favourite track on »Cycles Of Pain« and one of the songs I'm most proud of. It starts with a strong Brazilian accent that develops into a more progressive sound. The dynamics within the song help tell the story of the lyrics, taking you through the character's journey of vulnerability, growth, self-doubt and acceptance. We are extremely privileged to have the amazing, multi Latin Grammy winning LENINE singing the first part in Portuguese. As someone born in the Northeast of Brazil, a region where poverty and underdevelopment is rampant, he brings authenticity to the song, giving the character a legitimate voice. Lyrically, 'Vida Seca' talks about a child who's born in poverty, a situation all too common in Brazil and many other countries. Despite the hardship of his childhood, throughout his life he ends up having opportunities and ultimately reaches a better condition. It's a view on meritocracy and how unfair it is to expect the same level of achievement from people with very different starting conditions," states bass player Felipe Andreoli.

Lyrics:
VIDA SECA

Aurora fria, a lua devolvia o sol
Prum mundo tão real
O corpo em pé e a alma embaixo do lençol
Procurando forças
Pra chorar
Olhe Deus por seu filho pecador

A vida seca, não havia espaço pra ilusão
Brincava de lutar
E vivendo entre o caos e a confusão
Eu nunca achei o meu lugar

O sol nasceu para iluminar a escuridão
Tudo mudou

Another word of wisdom to save the day
Another life to know
There is a universe of endless possibilities
Another chance to grow

Found my way through the wind and the cold
I lie awake, as the gods of the world take control

Lost in the wide horizon
Set my gaze to the distant past
And hide from the glistening blinding light
Have I lost to a higher power?
Try my best just to comprehend
And the hope flows like water through my hands
Then I wane for a moment and I
Surrender

Talk to me cause my pride is crawling
Answer me, I am losing all control?
The angels are falling
Comfort me when my faith is dying
Follow me to the end of time, you know
The angels are falling
The angels are calling

Lost in the wide horizon
Set my gaze to the distant past
And I hide from the glistening blinding light
Have I lost to a higher power?
Try my best just to comprehend
And the hope flows like water through my hands
Like the clouds fading out of my mind
I just cherish the moment and smile

"5 units forming one solid hand... when the hand is clenched into a fist, it conveys heat, power and might - the attributes of a warrior. "Walk with Us" is an invitation to the warriors in each of us to rally on the path to justice, freedom and peace. The song summons our inner resolve to cherish a noble cause that can serve humanity's best interests. As such, you should never give up and keep the faith in who you are and can become. And the band members remind you: they will never let you down.
The brutal sound of the wild guitar riff saddling a thunderous bass line... the incantation of the untamed percussions and drums, all rooted in ancestral spirituality and the chants and growls of the hailer are a clear invitation to headbang with the warriors of Arka'n Asrafokor with your fist up in the air. An invitation to "Walk With Us"!

Lyrics:
WALK WITH US

What’s a man without something to die for
What am I without something to die for
The words are resounding in my soul
Look back in time and follow your soul

Kalētowo va do loo, mivado ku hagbe lo.
Kalētowo va do loo, ivado ku hagbe lo.
(We Warriors are here with our power and our chants).

Didn’t come this far just to see your loss
Didn’t come this far to see you on the cross
Didn’t come this far just to see your loss
Let me take your hand and open your eyes

Take your pride and rise again
Follow me and rise again
Drink my words and rise again

Kalētowo va do loo, mivado ku hagbe lo.
Kalētowo va do loo, ivado ku hagbe lo.
(We Warriors are here with our power and our chants).

I see you walking in the dark searching for something
I see you on a path that’s not yours

No !
Can’t let you do this
Come along with the song
No !
Can’t let you do this
Come along with the song
No !
Can’t let you do this
Come along with the song
No !
Can’t let you do this
Come along with the warriors
Come with the warriors

Kalētowo va do loo, mivado ku hagbe lo.
Kalētowo va do loo, ivado ku hagbe lo.
(We Warriors are here with our power and our chants).

Lyrics:
Warrior

If you open the book, turn the page, take a look
Find the truth right between the lines
Read the story in one, how it all just begun
Well, admit it's one of a kind
Giving protection with love and affection
Standing with honor and pride
Every now, every then, will be always the same
Born to follow, walk a fine line

You're born into this world
To believe in mankind's destiny
Marching on the path of glory
When misery is all you see
All you need lies in your faith
And until your dying breath
You are lost and lonely

Under fire and attack
You hear a neverending battle cry
The unsung hero stands alone
Waiting for the day to die
You are thunder and you're pain
You're the keeper of the flame
As you sacrifice

Warrior
Save a life, save a soul, fight for freedom
Warrior
Here you stand with no fear
Warrior
Take me home, take my soul, give us freedom
Warrior
I can shed no more tears

You know, we'll never find some peace
As long as there are burning fires
Only chaos everywhere
Why don't we stick to our own heart's desires?
When thunder meets the rain
It's time and again to sacrifice

Warrior
Save a life, save a soul, fight for freedom
Warrior
Here you stand with no fear
Warrior
Take me home, take my soul, give us freedom
Warrior
I can shed no more tears

Warrior
Warrior
Warrior

🎧 Stream, get it here: https://riotv.afr.link/MeanStreetsYT

Donnie Van Stavern comments on the track: "We are extremely excited to release our 17th RIOT record »Mean Streets« with the mighty Atomic Fire Records label! We went back to the roots a bit on this one with some hard rockers and of course power metal stylings. Our new pre-release lyric video 'High Noon' is a song I wrote with Mark Reale in mind, he loved the Old West and wrote songs about it as well ['Restless Breed'/'Gunfighter' etc.) and the music is a reminiscence on »Thundersteel«/»Privilege Of Power«! Enjoy, metal warriors, more awesomeness is on the way!"

Lyrics:
HIGH NOON

High Noon, shouting from the mountains
Echoing screams through the valley below
Warning shots fired into the skies
Heed my words or you’ll see your demise

Make no mistake I’m the law in this town
If it’s a choice of you or me
Then you’re going down

High Noon
Underneath the sun
High Noon
Until my job is done

Outlaws scattered throughout the land
Searching for treasure with weapons in hand
Locked and loaded with guns by my side
Saddle up boys ‘cause it’s time to ride

Make no mistake I’m the law in this town
If it’s a choice of you or me
Then you’re going down

High Noon
Underneath the sun
High Noon
Until my job is done
I am law in this town

Make no mistake I’m the law in this town
If it’s a choice of you or me
Then you’re going down
High Noon
Underneath the sun
High Noon
Until my job is done
I am law in this town

🎧 Stream, get it here: https://lutharo.afr.link/ChasingEuphoriaYT

"We are incredibly eager to finally introduce to the world our newest single 'Time To Rise.' This one is a doozy. This song is not only one of the most emotional we've written but has pushed us FAR out of our comfort zone in so many ways. This song has endless layers to it but its most dominant subject matter is inner child trauma and how it affects us in adult life, especially when it isn't resolved or acknowledged. We hope that through this song our listeners can begin a learning journey just as we have through this writing process. To anybody reading this: Remember to give yourself some grace, you and the younger version of you deserve it."

Lyrics:
TIME TO RISE

Come home now
Sleep my child
These overbearing wounds suffocated you enough
Lay to rest
These burdens in your chest
Your future is too prosperous to break like this

This armour that you wear
Was never yours to bear
These years have gotten heavier
This nightmare that you reap
Was never yours to keep
This anguish never yours

I promise this process it takes time
I’ll be your guide
I know you are not used to trusting in this blunt of time
Keep your head up
You are doing just fine
Like a phoenix you’re reviving till your time to rise

Go on and take a bow
With damage you’ve allowed
How hasn’t life struck you down?
Let’s throw the towel in
Resign as the villain
Come on let’s shed some skin

There’s more to what you see
Unravel me
It’s easy to stay quiet
But they’ll never silence me
These hills you’ve climbed
Will justify with time
Your role is growing tired
And It’s time for it to die

There’s more to what you see
Unravel me
It’s easy to stay quiet
But they’ll never silence me
These hills you’ve climbed
Will justify with time
Your role is growing tired
And It’s time for it to die

Lyrics:
BORN TO RIDE

We’re striking the lights out stately
Let the banners fly
Sights never guided me before just stifled my might
Short circuited odds and judgment
With victory to taste
When the blind leads the blind,
You’re at the edge of a blade

Ohhhh, keep suffering lows
Nowhere else to go but down another rabbit hole
Time to confess
That even at your best
You’ll still be living in distress

Concentrate the stakes are high
This is your freedom in disguise
Don’t let it pass you by
Bulletproof into the grind
This is a race that’s undefined
And you best believe,
We were born to ride

And ohh, have you got the grit?!
To get chewed up, spat out and judged
Without a single defense
This world will eat you alive
Sink its teeth into your pride
So, if you’re not made of sacrifice
Then step aside

Ohhhh, keep suffering lows
Nowhere else to go but down another rabbit hole
Time to confess
That even at your best
You’ll still be living in distress

Concentrate the stakes are high
This is your freedom in disguise
Don’t let it pass you by
Bulletproof into the grind
This race is undefined
you best believe,
We were born to ride, Cmon!

Concentrate the stakes are high
Our freedom in disguise
Don’t let it pass you by
Bulletproof into the grind
This race is undefined
you best believe,
We were born to ride.

Lyrics:
Far in the skies
Where the stars attach to the strings
You have seen angels fall, when a monster clips their wings

Darkness tonight
Someone whispers in the void
The loveliest things in your ear
You’ve been warned, you must avoid

When you hear the bells, heed the call
Tread without a fear, my friend
On your shoulder we behold
A monster only you can’t see

Anymore
Can we keep the rain abay
Once, you were sliding away
All the way down, without a rail, you

Tried a new way
Driving everyone away
Your eyes cannot lie like your face
There is no glory in disgrace, but

Friends are near
We are here
We still carry all those
Things you believed in, asshole

We have bent the rules
We have lied
Loved and known you’ll rise again
Friends will do all this for you

Child is aborn
Oh so feeble in this place
You are the guide they adore
Hopelessly lost within a maze, but

Friends are near…
We have bent the rules…

We will bend the rules
We will fight
Help you, we will win tonight
Spread your wings and you will rise

Sure, your mind weighs like a boulder
There’s a monster on your shoulder
Words and phrases, meanings, faces
Virtues, vices,
Your luck’s based on balanced dices

We are you, you are us
Always, you’re one of us
Respect, asshole
You don’t know just how much we sometimes have sacrificed to be there for you

Your keys and the keyholes once will be found
Dreams and reality, aligned
You’ve grown and found things you thought were left behind
Smile and you will see this world smile back at you

We’ve bent rules for you
We have lied
Loved and known you’ll rise again
Friends will do it all for you

We will bend the rules
We will fight
Help you, we will win tonight
Spread your wings and you will rise

We will bend the rules
We will fight
Love and know you’ll rise again
Friends will do all this for you

We will bend the rules…

Bass player Donnie Van Stavern states, "When I wrote the music for 'Feel The Fire,' I wanted to bring back the early RIOT rock days musically with a ZEPPELIN/PRIEST kind of vibe. The lyrics I wrote about a passionate, aggressive, love, fire driven relationship within the souls of man and woman deeply obsessed with one another. The video kind of grabs the concept with fire, aggressive lights and of course a hot woman!"

Lyrics:

FEEL THE FIRE

Lightning flashes 'cross the crimson sky
Distant thunder rolls into the night
Fear the power as I gain control
Eyes of fire as I touch your soul

Supersession
My one obsession
Built aggression
My soul possession

Feel the fire
Burning deep inside
Feel the fire
Feelings I can't hide

Frightening passion running through my veins
Taking chances when you play the game
Enter darkness I have just begun
In my chambers you're the chosen one

Supersession
My one obsession
Built aggression
My soul possession

Feel the fire
Burning deep inside
Feel the fire
Feelings I can't hide

Lightning flashes 'cross the crimson sky
Distant thunder rolls into the night
Fear the power as I gain control
Eyes of fire as I touch your soul

Supersession
My one obsession
Built aggression
My soul possession

Feel the fire
Burning deep inside
Feel the fire
Feelings I can't hide
