Track Name: Good Times Orc
GOOD! TIMES! ORC! GO!
GOOD TIMES ORC!
Track Name: Gladiator's Vengeance
A plainsman from a conquered land
Brought down by the emperor's hand
A long way from home for you, boy.
Thrust into the fighters' cage
A sword and shield you'll wield for his amusement
One by one, opponents fall
Your name carried on the wind of the city
A plainsman, standing proud and tall
A tale of victory, a rumor of sorrow
At the fate of the plains.
The odds are stacking ever higher and higher
But the blood of your foes ever rains.

Leads: Ozzie, Ozzie+Chris harmony

Let them all come
I'll slay them all
Just a plainsman
No more
Empire's Champion
Face me now
Stand before me

A poisoned goblet has touched your lips
The emperor's treachery is clear
Your mind races as your body is stumbling
The champion waits to fight
You draw your sword and weakly grit your teeth
No poison will remove victory from your sight
Across the arena the champion is waiting
On the balcony, the Emperor smiles
You point to him with your sword and move forward
The clash of steel fills the ears of all around

Solos: Ozzie, Chris, Ozzie, Chris, Ozzie, Chris, Ozzie, Chris

The champion's blood
Soaks the ground
Your knife rests
On the emperor's throat!
Track Name: Dog of War
I come alive when I smell death
Released, a hound of war, I hurtle toward violence
Man's best friend turned worst enemy
Dog of War, I'm gonna tear em up, rip the throat, scatter for the trees

Beast! of war, I've been
Bred! to kill and
Defend! By my master's hand
Come! Try to face
Me! I am no
Man! My body speaks of

Death! (Backing Vox: Death!)
You can't stop me now!
Blood! (Blood!)
Spilling fast
Dog! (of War!)

I'll sniff out where you hide
Your time is up and I'm watching the clock
Your horse can't save you from me
Officers and generals fall prey to my fangs

I'm crashing through the lines
Teeth gnashing, swords flashing in the night
Horrifying howl
The last thing you'll see are blood-flecked fangs!

And in the moonlight I see him
The standard-bearer, wearing an expression grim
The night turns red as I fly forth (solo: Chris)
Throat tear, beating heart, fear me for I am a beast of Hell

Beast! of war, I've been
Bred! to kill and
Defend! By my master's hand
Come! Try to face
Me! I am no
Man! My body speaks of

Death! (Backing Vox: Death!)
You can't stop me now!
Blood! (Blood!)
Spilling fast
Dog! (of War!)
Track Name: Smoke in the Mountains
Black skies! Ignite! The powder smoke is hidden now by the menacing night.
Gray ghosts and empty boasts, the spirits inside cloud and ones without are coming for you
It's time to die as the Legion rides, bringing the damned to hell in their wake, laughter breaks
Savage war cries haunt me, you most fear what you never can see


The smoke conceals the strike best left unseen


The mountain secrets left untold to us soldiers
Forbidden knowledge snuffed out in last moments of life
I can see the hatchet falling and falling towards me
Rifle report in the wilderness.


You don't know what you seek!
Feel the life drain slowly!
You will vacate these lands!
You shall die by our hands!

Say yer prayers!

Chieftans a shoutin'
Rocking chair to the rocking grounds, oh my!
Smoke in the mountains
Put a finger to the eye up in the sky

Smoke on the mount, signal sky
On the hilltop, savage cry
Track Name: Starboy (Boy of the Stars)
Starboy...
Track Name: Rocket Highway
Whipping through the wastes, we're wild men on our way
Against the discolored sun we're riding on the wind
On this highway, we can't stop for a break
We will uncover the legend of the wastes

A relic from the past...
Limitless energy...

The Omega Generator is spoken of in song
From a time before the bombs made this world a living hell
Every rocket gang seeks the same thing we do
But if they get there first we're all doomed...

Watch out! We're coming!
Wild jet engines, wasters cringing
Rocket Highway, rockin' my way,
These bastards don't fuck around
Mount up! Ignition!
Swinging chains and taking names,
Rocket Highway, rockin' my way,
You better watch your back!

Watch out! We're coming!
Wild jet engines, wasters cringing
Rocket Highway, rockin' my way,
These bastards don't fuck around
Mount up! Ignition!
Swinging chains and taking names,
Rocket Highway, rockin' my way,
You better watch your back!

Jetbikes, don't ever give in
Ride on, my friends
To glory and to riches
We can't ever give up
While there is still hope,
I'll go on and on and on and on and on...

In the ruined future, few ride the infamous rocket highway.
The Omega Generator, a mere legend,
causes the brave and the foolish to face its horrors,
and we are among them.
For the sake of mankind, we ride on...

Solos: Chris, Ozzie
Track Name: Conquistador Attack!
Deep in the jungle the pale ones are stalking, stalking
But they're far from home and we hear them talking
The hallowed grounds of zultepec will run red with their blood
Hear our prayer, Huitzilopochtli, as we go forth tonight

[gang]Stab! And! Twist! Make! Them die!
They! Won't! Live! Through! The night![/gang]

Take them alive if you can
The gods must be satisfied

Silhouetted against the moon
Aztec Warriors rise, to the spaniards' doom!
Until the life leaves our bones
We'll make them pay the Ultimate Price!

Though disease racks our village
Though staves of death spit fire
Tonight we're ready for them
From this earth they'll retire

[gang]From! The! Hills! We! Crush them!
No! Mer! cy! Is! Given!

Take them alive if you can
The gods must be satisfied

Silhouetted against the moon
Aztec Warriors rise, to the spaniards' doom!
Until the life leaves our bones
We'll fall upon them from the hills!

Let the blood run freely,
Fall upon the stone!
Chanting malevolence,
Summon up the ghosts!
You have but one god,
There are many for us.
One god is not enough,
To save you from the jungle or from us!

Bind! Them! To! The! Stone!
Summon! The Priest! Of! Bones!
Pray! To! Your! God!
Your! Time! Has! Come!

Silhouetted against the moon
Aztec Warriors rise, to the spaniards' doom!
Until the life leaves our bones
We'll make them our:

HUMAN SACRIFICE!
Track Name: Master of the Forge
As one of the learned three, I can perceive
The ancient arts lost to time,
and my craft is just that, it is Craft.
In my forge as the fires warm me
I provide the heroes with tools
I am He Who Creates, I am the master of the forge.

I transcend time in my journey
The hammers echo in my ears
Ever searching for the Dreamstone
Time growing ever shorter

Heave! Ho!

I am old but hale, and I can work for aeons at a time
Every true quest requires my skill
Perhaps once in a generation, I shall create.

Every legend you've heard, every story you've read
I've had a hand in the tales, I've built death to your dread
You won't hear my name, but you'll see my sign
Carved with burning steel in your evil mind

Solos: Ozzie, Pils, Chris, Pils, Ozzie, Chris, Ozzie and Chris at the same time

I am kin of Hephaestus and Wayland
The blood of the Smiths runs through my veins
But the line ends with me
Track Name: Defender
I have been summoned to fulfill my duty
Feel the weight of my sword
Offer no prayer to the god that forsook me
Saddle and reign my horse
We now ride to war!

We push them back
As we are pushed back ourselves
Over our bodies they will take the keep
Oh, the crows will sing

Save the king, defend the keep!
The giant has been roused from his sleep
The riddle of steel has never seemed so clear to me
As the sun rises and falls, our swords will ring

Now!
To the walls
To the swords
To the shields
To the spears
To the sky!

Somewhere inside myself I find determination
Await the assault as the sky pours rain
Cleaving flesh and hewing bone

I grasp my hilt until the skin is blistered, we will
fight through the night and to hell
until the day is won.
By my own life blood, I will defend my home

Solos: Ozzie, Chris, Ozzie, Chris

And now dawn breaks, the black queen's standard lies broken
Rejoice in triumph, The hellbitch is destroyed
Track Name: C.O.T.R.
The ancient days are now laid out before us
Conquest looms in our sights
Merciless reptilian cunning
Hear humanity's cries

Crush! Slam! Erasure!
We are reptite!

Pace until death....

You! Won't! Escape us!
Scream for all time!

(Kill!) All those who stand in our way
(Murder) The Warmbloods in their sleep
(Maim!) The women! The children too!
(Defeat!) All who resist our march to victory.

Red Star!
Fall!

And I look to the sky
And I don't know why
I feel this dread
Soon we'll be dead

We've been hiding in this primal wood for days
Trying to hold Nizbel's force at bay.

Red star... Fall!!!!! Stain the whole earth...RED! Though it may be
our fate to perish, we will not simply hand this world to
you!
Soon, stones of fire will rain down. Flames shall scorch the land.
The burned out plains will slowly freeze, ushering in a
long, cruel ice age. Mwa, ha ha!!
