1. GOD SAVE LONDON

This isle of might
Through the centuries strong and reliant
With a lionheart will
And the soul of a warrior giant

A sinister threat
From afar a barrage of hellfire
Defiant they stood
To uphold and defend their empire

The silence of night
Disrupted by sirens of warning
This nightmare on earth
Revealed the destruction by morning

The people united
Undated protecting their nation
Steadfast and true
Responding without trepidation

Together they fought
Together they prayed
Together they weathered the violent melee

God save London
All hallows by the tower
God save London
In this life defying hour

God save London
All hallows by the tower
God save London
In this cities finest hour


2. BLITZKRIEG DEMONS

Mighty motherlord of raining iron
That nothing of this planet could withstand
Mechanized marauders breathing fire
Bringing death and ravaging the land

Screaming force of fighting aviators
Scorching engines - Thunder in the sky
These arsenals of airborne firepower
Freedom fighters true until they die

Fearsome force of mechanized destruction
Airborne raiders violently defy
Taking all contenders that oppose them
A blaze of blood and glory in the skies

Wings of fire, skies of burning glory
Equalizers of the master plan
Blazing guns of fury have no mercy
Unified as one machine and man

Demons, demons of the blitzkrieg
Lethal devastation from the sky
Demons, demons of the blitzkrieg
With ancient warring spirits they will fly

Demons, demons of the blitzkrieg
Lethal devastation from the sky
Demons, demons of the blitzkrieg

An ancient fighting code that they live by


3. THE IRON SAINT

The B-17 flew crippled and tattered
Longing for a safe landing home
The fuselage so bloodied and battered
They faces potential doom alone

From the clouds a fighter's fury
Alas this must be the final flight
As crew in silence prayed contrition
Surely the fortress would ignite

An iron cross with a golden heart
Would signal a guiding sign so clear
He'd route the dying winged avenge
Towards england's shore to steer

From their war, half a century beyond
The saint and veteran flyers bond
They fortify what's good and right
That mankind heart again transcends the fight

Spirit of the iron saint fly on
A fellowship of man forever strong
Spirit of the iron saint fly on
Fly on, fly on, fly on....


4. FOUR STARS OF HELL

We're unlocking the gates to the halls of true
Valor and glory
And in reverence we honor all those who defended
Their lands
We will strive to preserve the distinction and
Pride of their stories
Pay tribute to the dauntless endurance that
Courage demands

Fury no end, foes to hell they'd send
Keepers of the key to the devils den
Valor defined, evil denied
Nothing that this world of ours will see again

Frontline offensives and hand to hand fights in
the trenches
Attackers en masse from the flack ridden
Treacherous skies
The fury and heat of the merciless battlefields
Raging
Relentless campaigns of destruction and constant
Demise

Fury no end, foes to hell they'd send
Keepers of the key to the devils den
Valor defined, evil denied
Nothing that this world of ours will see again

Fury no end, foes to hell they'd send
Keepers of the key to the devils den
Valor defined, evil denied
Nothing that this world of ours will see again

In mythic proportions of fortitude valor and
Justice
Legions defined resolute and invincible will
History remembers the heroes and tyrants among us
An the warring desires of mankind will never be
Still

Valor defined, evil denied
Nothing that this world of ours will see again

Nijmegen Normandy Bastogne and the eagles nest
The four stars of hell were the warriors
Treacherous test

Four starts of hell...
Four stars of
Hel...
Four starts of hell...
Four stars of
Hel...
Four starts of hell...
Four stars of
Hell....

Fury no end, foes to hell they'd send
Keepers of the key to the devils den
Valor defined, evil denied
Nothing that this world of ours will see again

Nijmegen Normandy Bastogne and the eagles nest
The four stars of hell were the warriors
Treacherous test

Four starts of hell...
Four stars of
Hel...
Four starts of hell...
Four stars of
Hell...


5. BASTOGNE

We found our fallen brothers in a thousand
Priceless pieces
Murdered in a frozen field just south of
Malmedy

We fought with honor heart & soul in a
Thousand vicious places
Through winners biting cold we gave the fight
Of the century

From market gardens plan the lethal bridge
Assault
To the seven vital roads of the ardennes
From England's coast To holy hell and back
Again
Most men can't conceive or comprehend

We fought ourselves surrounded in that
Deadliest december
Resolute entrenched within teutonic ring of
Steel

We fought with stealth and fury by strategies
Deception
From the ridge at Elsenborn on to a
Battleground surreal

We fought with fierce resistance ever though
Outnumbered
From Mardasson remembered right on to St.
Vith
We forged ahead the offensive with such
Might and armour
With weapons frozen solid and hellcats we
Were fighting with

From Market Gardens plan the lethal bridge
Assault
To the seven vital roads of the ardennes
From England's coast to holy hell and back
Again
We never thought we'd see the battle end

We fight side by side, we stand alone
Together
From Curahee we descend into the heart of
Hell's fury fire
We fight side by side, we stand alone
Together
Down liberty's road in victory we hear war
Angel's choir

We are the spirits of the hell they call
Bastogne
En force we came to fight, and heroes blood
Was sown

We are the spirits of the hell they call
Bastogne
Let our missions sacrifice eternally, in
Histories name be known


6. GUADALCANAL

Burned by the heat of the infernal sin
Bled till the rites of the dying were done

Artillery pounded the surf and the sand
Lost were the virtues that God gave to man

Sinister tactics in honor disguised
Subservient hatred that drove to despise

Strange foreign ways they were fighting against
Gallon by gallon their lifeblood dispensed

Esprit de corps - To fight with conviction
A nightmare tour into hell and back

Esprit de corps - Right into damnantion
Thirty eight thousand that never came back

From sharpest eyes the enemy slyly concealed
The fusillade threatened deploying afield

With desperate fury attempts at attack
With equal precision another strike back

On from hell's point to cape esperance
Few seconds to pray as the fire commenced

Stand by your guns cried the voice of command
Guadalcanal may your grim shores be damned

Esprit de corps - To fight with conviction
A nightmare tour into hell and back

Esprit de corps - Right into damnantion
Thirty eight thousand that never came back


7. THE WOLFPACK

Ninety fathoms deep, the hunter silently preys
Military or merchant flag, there was no
Distinction

Fortunes of war to reap, sail in the hell of harms
Way
No escaping harbingers of devastation

The Kriegsmarine did royal navy hate
Beneath the waves the hunters laid in wait

Rise to spying depth, the looking glass of death
Iron serpents scanned the seas for vindication

Terror of the seas, with fear all hearts were
Seized
The atlantic claimed near sixty thousand souls

The Kriegsmarine did royal navy hate
Beneath the waves the hunters laid in wait
To Neptunes icy provinces condemned
Final prayers for mercies god might send...

No fight we won't deny
No ship we won't defy
No fight we won't deny
No ship we won't defy


8. NORMANDY ANGELS

A grim and telling overcast loomed dark and low
Above the bay of seine
But not the true and final destination for the
Souls of fighting men
Winged and seabourne raiders charged to breach
The great atlantic wall,
Every able man would proudly come to heed their
Homeland's duty call

Their spirits still drift in the air from
Carentan, out to the shore
Will future history books remember rightly, june
of nineteen fourty-four
From purple heart, to cross of valour, battle
Star and iron cross
We must raise a glass and toast their memories,
And reflect on what we've lost

Assault came from the air and sea, and from a
Land enforced to live unfree
Shackled from the way of live that give the
Right to peace and liberty
Shore positions fortified with battlements built
Solely to defy
Infernal rain of fire when every second life was
Granted or denied

Ohama gold Utah Juno and sword
The bloody terrain of the plan overlord

For every father and son and brother that fell
From the afterworld came a normandy angel
For every war story grandfather would tell
By the fire beside him, a Normandy angel

For every father and son and brother that fell
Each of them became a Normandy angel
Within every survivor that escaped that true hell
Resides in their heart, a Normandy angel

This embattled shore, portal of freedom
Is forever hallowed by the ideals
The valor and the sacrifices of our fellow
Countrymen
The whole earth their sepulcher
Comrades in arms whose resisting place is known
Only to go
To these we owe the high resolve that
The cause for which they died shall live


9. RED SECTOR A (RUSH COVER)

All that we can do is just survive
All that we can do to help ourselves is stay alive

Ragged lines of ragged grey
Skeletons, they shuffle away
Shouting guards and smoking guns
Will cut down the unlucky ones

I clutch the wire fence until my fingers bleed
A wound that will not heal
A heart that cannot feel
Hoping that the horror will recede
Hoping that tomorrow we'll all be freed

Sickness to insanity
Prayer to profanity
Days and weeks and months go by
Don't feel the hunger
Too weak to cry

I hear the sound of gunfire at the prison gate
Are the liberators here?
Do I hope or do I fear?
For my father and my brother, it's too late
But I must help my mother stand up straight

Are we the last ones left alive?
Are we the only human beings to survive?
