Fighting The World

Fight, fight, fight
Fighting the World every single day
Fighting the World for the right to play
Heavy Metal in my brain
I'm fighting for Metal cause it's here to stay

Fighting, fighting, fighting the World

Fighting, fighting, fighting the World

Fight for a living-Fighting the World
Fight for a living-Fighting the World
Fight for a living-Fighting the World
Fight

Now people keep asking if we're going to change
I look'em in the eye
Tell'em no way
Strips on a tiger don't wash away
Manowar's made of steel not clay

Fighting,fighting,fighting the World
I been figthing the World
Fighting,fighting,fighting the World

Fight for a living-Fighting the World
Fight for a living-Fighting the World
Fight for a living-Fighting the World
Fight Yeah!
See my brother standing by my side
Only got one thing in our mind
Radio playing this nation wide
Turn it up louder'til we all get fried

Fighting, fighting, fighting the World
I been figthing the World
Fighting,fighting, fighting the World
I been figthing
Fight-Fighting the World
Fight-Fighting the World
Fight-Fighting the World
Fight-Fighting the World
Fight for a living-Fighting the World

Blow Your Speakers

Wrote a letter to the M.T.V.
What's goin' on now
Don't ya care about me
Sent the same letter to the radio,
But my party went dead
Like a shot in the head
We all like it-Rock and Roll
We all want it-On your show
Play it loud, don't play it low
Blow your speakers with Rock and Roll

We got lots of stations
Around the nation
And the stuff they're playing
It just ain't worth my sayin'
People want music to get'em movin'
We don't want labels
We want music on the table

We all like it-Rock and Roll
We all want it-on your show
Play it loud,don't play it low
Blow your speakers with Rock and Roll

We all like it-Rock and Roll
We all want it-on your show
Play it loud,don't play it low
Blow your speakers with Rock and Roll

We got lots of stations
Around the nation
And the stuff they're playing
It just ain't worth my sayin'

We all like it-Rock and Roll
We all want it-on your show
Play it loud,don't play it low
Blow your speakers with Rock and Roll

Carry On

The north star always guides me
When winter skies are gray
And I wait for sun when all are one
I shall not betray
Calling at me
I'm waiting when all are led astray

Carry on my sons forever
Carry On when I am gone
Carry On when the day is long
Forever Carry On
For as long as we're together
Then forever Carry On

Darkness all around us
We don't close our eyes
No one's gonna ground us
We were burn to fly
Comin'at us no stopping
Born to amplify

Carry on my sons forever
Carry On when I am gone
Carry On when the day is long
Forever Carry On
For as long as we're together
Then forever Carry On

Yea,be my brother
Fight to stay alive
All the world can't change us
With all their burned-out jive
Come get us now we're waiting
We won't run and hide

Carry on my sons forever
Carry On when I am gone
Carry On when the day is long
Forever Carry On
For as long as we're together
Then forever Carry On

Now we're all together
Let's sing a fighting song
One hundred thousand riders
We can't all be wrong
Comin'at us no stopping
Always Carry On

Carry on my sons forever
Carry On when I am gone
Carry On when the day is long
Forever Carry On
For as long as we're together
Then forever Carry On

Violence And Bloodshed

Civilization crumblin' fast
End the world with a blast
People afraid walking the streets
Scums have their day
'Til they run into me

Are you ready?

Livin' in fear ain't livin' to me
I'am armed with a gun defending the free
They blew it in Nam shot up my friends
I'm back in the streets the fight never ends

I was born with a gun in my hand
I'll die for my country
But I'll die like a man
Violence and Bloodsheed
Violence and Bloodsheed
Violence and Bloodsheed

Now we're back to animal law
The payback's a bitch and I'm paying all
All my life I been waitin'to see
Who's gonna win crumbs or me

Are you ready

My brother's still in Da-Nang
Puttin'an ad in the back of Kerrang
I'm looking for people who just wanna kill
We'll go back the Nam cause no one else will

Land of the free
Home of the brave
Now that's how it is
And that's how it stays

Violence and Bloodsheed
Violence and Bloodsheed
Violence and Bloodsheed

Defender

When you are old enough to read this words
Their meaning will unfold
These words all that's left
And though we've never meet, my only son
I hope you know
That I would have been there to watch you grow
But my call was heard and I did go
Now your mission lies ahead of you
As it did mine so long ago
To help the helpless ones who all look up to you
And to defend them to the end

Defender
Ride like the wind
Fight proud, my son
You're the defender
God has sent

Father,father,father
I look up to you and heed thy call
This letter ends my search
I'll live your dream now passed on to me
And I now wait to shake the hand of fate
Like the dusk awaiting dawn

So wizards cast your spell
With no heart to do me well
So it's written,it shall be

Defender
Ride like the wind
Fight proud, my son
You're the defender
God has sent

Holy War

Damnation, Religion, Salvation, Fire and steel

I have seen the fire
Of a thousand suns pass by
While blasphemers fill the air
Bearing false witness
Now we rise
All ye children of the wild
Fists like hammers fill the air
Vast legions all immortal
Smash the stilness everywhere

Holy,Holy War

Holy
We are fighting,figthing a Holy War
Holy War
See us fly on winds of doom
Holy War
Baptized in fire and steel
Holy War
For the end we bring is soon
Holy War
Now face the storm
A Holy War

Brothers of metal know no masters
Metal's our religion
Take it to the grave
Rulers of the earth
Our down of glory
All Reborn,we live again.
Hold true,ye sacred army
Our last battle is at hand
Sweep these dogs from our kingdom
Bless this ground, our holy land.

Holy,Holy War

Holy
We are fighting,figthing a Holy War
Holy Way
See us fly on winds of doom
Holy War
Baptized in fire and steel
Holy War
For the end we bring is soon
Holy War
Now face the storm
A Holy War

Master Of Revenge

Black Dogs howl in the Night
The lion is dead
A solitary Messenger
The Master of Revenge

Back to the top

Black Wind, Fire And Steel

Full moon light is calling me
My kigndom lies within
The mystic soul and lions heart
Brought by the talisman
The ecstasy of battle takes me
Where the falcons fly
Immortal youth was granted me
I will never die

Born of Black wind fire and steel
Born of Black wind fire and steel
Born to teach them all to heel
Born of Black wind fire and steel

Pounded by the hammers
Of the giants of the world
I can see in darkness
I'm the overlord
Single combat I await
My shadow brings them fear
The spikes upon my chariot
Will grind them when they're near

Born of Black wind fire and steel
Born of Black wind fire and steel
Born to teach them all to heel
Born of Black wind fire and steel

I am an outcast on the path of no return
Punisher and swordsman
I was born to burn
Black Wind always follows
Where my black horse rides
Fire's in my soul
Steel is on my side

Born of Black wind fire and steel
Born of Black wind fire and steel
Born to teach them all to heel
Born of Black wind fire and steel
