THE KINGDOM OF STEEL - COMPILATION – 1998 > LYRICS

Manowar [BACK]

We Met On English Ground
In A Backstage Room We Heard The Sound
And We All Knew What We Had To Do

We Called The High Command
Requested Leave To Make A Stand
And In The Field We Grew And We All Knew

Soon The Time Would Come For Us To Fight
Destination Now In Sight

Oh MANOWAR
Born To Live Forever More
The Right To Conquer Every Shore
Hold Your Ground And Give No More

Our Fight Will Never End So We Call On Partisans
To Raise Your Hands And Take Our Stand

Look Sharp When Duty Calls
Where We March Cities Fall
And The Strong Survive
And Take Our Side

Now The Time Has Come For Us To Fight
Target Waiting In Our Sights

Oh MANOWAR
Born To Live Forever More
The Right To Conquer Every Shore
Hold Your Ground And Give No More

MANOWAR
Born To Live Forever More
The Right To Conquer Every Shore
MANOWAR
Born To Live Forever More
MANOWAR
Born To Live Forever More
The Right To Conquer Every Shore
Hold Your Ground And Give No More
Born To Live Forever More
The Right To Conquer Every Shore
MANOWAR


Blood Of My Enemies [BACK]

Three Sons Have I And They Ride By My Side
The Fierce The Black And The Wicked Are Their Names
We Ride Down My Enemies On Their Half Hearted Flight
No Voice Of Mercy No Evangels Of Light

Mighty Messengers Heathens Rage
Witness Our Coming Gods Of The Dead
I Ride Through The Air I Laugh As I Die
With Powers Of Evil Dark Knowledge Is Mine
The Ride Of The Wicked The First Sin Was Trust
Kill Without Warning For Blood Now I Lust

Strong Winds Magic Mist
To Asgard The Valkries Fly
High Overhead They Carry The Dead
Where The Blood Of My Enemy Lies

Three Sons Have I And They Ride By My Side
The Fierce The Black And The Wicked Are Their Names
We Ride Down My Enemies On Their Half Hearted Flight
No Voice Of Mercy No Evangels Of Light

Strong Winds Magic Mist
To Asgard The Valkries Fly
High Overhead They Carry The Dead
Where The Blood Of My Enemy Lies


Kill With Power [BACK]

Hear What’s Written On The Wind
We Come To Kill And Kill Again
Our Arrows Fall Like Hail
Trample On The Dead
Ride Through The Gate Of Clouds
Stand On The Open Step

Run Berserk Spreading Fear And Pain
Black Shield And Weapons Black Our Chain
None Can Harm Us Not Their Fire Iron Or Steel
For We Have The Will To Power
With Power We Will Kill

Kill With Power Die Die
Kill With Power Die Die

To The War God Odin You Will Pray
And The Curse Of Weapons Shall Remain
On The Blood Of All Our Fathers
On Their Weapons We Now Swear
To Avenge Not Lament
Give The False Ones Death

Kill With Power Die Die
Kill With Power Die Die


Sign Of The Hammer [BACK]

The Spell Has Been Broken The Curse Has Been Lifted
Black Is The Wind On The Heels Of The Gifted
Four Sworn To Vengeance See The Hate In Our Eyes
Called By The Gods And Given A Sign

Onward Pounding Into Glory Ride
Sign Of The Hammer Be My Guide
Final Warning All Stand Aside
Sign Of The Hammer It’s My Time

Pounding Pounding We Are Back From The Dead
Those Who Denied Us Are Delivered Instead
Into The Hands Of Four Sworn To Ride
Now The People Will Triumph And Live By The Sign

Onward Pounding Into Glory Ride
Sign Of The Hammer Be My Guide
Final Warning All Stand Aside
Sign Of The Hammer It’s My Time

The Spell Has Been Broken The Curse Has Been Lifted
Black Is The Wind On The Heels Of The Gifted
Four Sworn To Vengeance See The Hate In Our Eyes
Called By The Gods And Given A Sign

Onward Pounding Into Glory Ride
Sign Of The Hammer Be My Guide
Final Warning All Stand Aside
Old Men And Young Boys It’s My Time

Sign Of The Hammer It’s My Time

Sign Of The Hammer Be My Guide
Sign Of The Hammer Be My Guide
Sign Of The Hammer It’s My Time


Courage [BACK]

Some Want To Think Hope Is Lost See Me Stand Alone
I Can’t Do What Others May Want Then I’ll Have No Home

So For Now Wave Goodbye And Leave Your Hands Held High
Hear This Song Of Courage Long Into The Night
So For Now Wave Goodbye Leave Your Hands Held High
Hear This Song Of Courage Long Into The Night

And The Wind Will Bear My Cry To All Who Hope To Fly
Hear This Song Of Courage Ride Into The Night

Battles Are Fought By Those With The Courage To Believe
They Are Won By Those Who Find The Heart
Find A Heart To Share
This Heart That Fills The Soul Will Point The Way To Victory
If There’s A Fight Then I’ll Be There I’ll Be There

So For Now Wave Goodbye Leave Your Hands Held High
Hear This Song Of Courage Long Into The Night
And The Wind Will Bear My Cry To All Who Hope To Fly
Lift Your Wings Up High My Friend Fearless To The End
So For Now Wave Goodbye Leave Your Hands Held High
Hear This Song Of Courage Long Into The Night

Heart Of Steel [BACK]

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

The Gods Made Heavy Metal [BACK]

In The Beginning There Was Silence And Darkness All Across The Earth

The Power [BACK]

II’ve Got The Power To Fly Into The Wind
The Power To Be Free To Die And Live Again
This Powers Like Fire Fire Loves To Burn
Make The World A Grave Of Ashes In An Urn
The Power In The Darkness To See Without My Sight
Walk Among The Living Free Of Wrong And Right
The Power Of The Magic The Power Of The Spell
Not To Serve In Heaven But One Day Rule In Hell

Power

This Powers Greater Than Love And Of Hate
This Is The Power Of Will And Of Fate
The Power To Kill The Power To Feel
The Power Of Blood The Triumph Of Steel
Greater Than The Power Of A Priest Or A Sinner
The Power To Defy To Fight And Be The Winner
The Power Of The Demons Spirits I Command
Always By My Side To Serve The Masters Plan

Power

None Can Fight The Power None Can Fight The Wind
Secrets Of All Life And Death Are Carried There Within
Call Out To The Power Of Darkness And Light
Have Dominion Of The Earth Be Lord Of All The Night
Kill All Those Who Stand Against You Look Into Their Eyes
Drink Their Blood And Laugh As They Pay For All Their Lies
Piss Upon Their Grave Then Cast A Final Spell
Fly Into The Night And One Day Meet In Hell

Power


Battle Hymn [BACK]

Hail To Thee Our Infantry
Still Brave Beyond The Grave
All Sworn The Eternal Vow

With Mace And Chain In Hand
Sound The Charge Into Glory Ride
Over The Top Of Their Vanquished Pride

Victory Victory

And Still No Space And Time

Over The Top Of Their Vanquished Pride
By Moonlight We Ride
Ten Thousand Side By Side
