Track Name: Blood & Iron
Blood & Iron
Music: HESS
Lyrics: Hess

The sound of the broken chains
Has awakened you into a world of pain
In your zeal for rebellion
Madness and strength, dragged you away

Frightful waves, sailed them northwest
On through the twilight of daybreak
You found their bodies' butchered remains
Voiced it to the Gods and on with the quest

For blood and iron you've slain
Signs of all times drunk from their heads
By blood and iron they faded away
Bringer of rain, slayer of Death

Victor in the games
Between skulls and dead flesh
The blood and the iron
In the arena merged again

More than a mortal man
On through the dawn of the ages
A legacy carved in steel
Embracing a message of fear

For blood and iron you've slain
Signs of all times drunk from their heads
By blood and iron they faded away
Bringer of rain, slayer of Death

A mighty beast from the bowels of Hell
For eons reigned in Roman land
Met death by a Thracian slave
With the sword that saw the Empire’s fall

Bringer of rain, slayer of Death
Track Name: The Hessian
Music: Schefer
Lyrics: Hess
Guest Vocals: Gerardo Delgado, Maximiliano Spinelli

In a valley of shadows
A nightmare rests on her nine hills
In the gloom of the night
People are haunted by fiends

A dead Germanic mercenary
To a cannonball lost his head
In that Civil War he fought in the British lines
Hence every night restarts his chase

Like a midnight blast
Howling among the trees
Galloping from his grave
The headless horseman
Terror of night
The spirit of a Hessian

I found you in a vision
Oh midnight fiend
Oh Hessian guardian
Unveil the past to me

I saw the Teutonic terror
Mounting his hellish steed
Charging forth to battle
Then vanished at hell speed

Like a madman crossing
Hollows and blood red streams
Shouting his battle cry
Commander of all
The phantoms of ancient times
The headless Hessian

Like a midnight blast
Howling among the trees
Galloping from his grave
The headless horseman
Terror of night
The spirit of a Hessian
Track Name: Clarisse's Nightmare
Music: Schefer, Martarello
Lyrics: Dufour, Hess
Guest Vocals: John Hennessy

It was another day
Clarisse went to her room
"It's time to sleep"
She told her dog

She stroked his head
He licked her hand
Left hanging over the bed
Into a deep sleep she fell

At that moment when you don’t know if you’re dreaming or not
Caught within the limits of reality or illusion
Drop by drop, falling to the floor
Drop by drop, to mark the time

Clarisse walked in darkness
Listening to the leak
Headed to a tap, nothing fell from it
A dream it must be

Went back to sleep, her hand
Hung over the bed
Warm tongue licked it
Into dreams again

And the dripping sound
Went on overnight
Oh, that dripping sound

At sunrise she woke up, the dripping wouldn’t stop
Opened the bathroom door and let out a shout
The dog was hanging from an iron bar
Red drip dripping to the floor

What she saw in the mirror
Froze her innocent soul
"Not only dogs can lick"
Written there in blood

And the dripping sound
Went on overnight
Oh, that dripping sound

Until today Clarisse
Cannot sleep
In the asylum’s room
For her life she fears

Never knew who
Or what it was
Forever remembering that tongue
Licking her hand…
Licking her hand…
Licking her hand…

Clarisse…Clarisse…
Track Name: Der Teufel und sein Lehrling
Music: HESS
Lyrics: Hess

Jag, fang, entzücke mich
In dieser kalten, schwarzen Nacht
Rote, böse, dunkle Lust
Ein Opfer für den Sieg

Lass mich dein Lehrling sein
Und mach meine Träume wahr
Lehre mich alle Geheimnisse
Nimm mich auf dem weiße weite Feld

Den Krieg werden wir gewinnen
Die heilige Lanze müssen wir finden
Die Sänger singen dem Mond
Zu Ehren des Herrenvolkes

Ich bereue nichts

Der Einzelgänger der Burg
Auf den Tag der Rache wartet
Stöhnt, schreit jede Nacht
Unter seine Würde hielt

Lass mich dein Lehrling sein
Und mach meine Träume wahr
Lehre mich alle Geheimnisse
Nimm mich auf dem weiße weite Feld

Der Teufel wird es nicht vergeben
Nach dem Tod werden wir leben
Vor meinem Herrn, ich weiss
Er spricht mich frei

Ich bereue nichts
Track Name: The Giant (in memory of Ronnie James Dio)
Music: Schefer
Lyrics: Hess
Guest Vocals: Mariano Gardella

Once upon a time a little giant roamed the Earth
Conquered thousand lands making his music heard
Every village surrendered their lives
The enemies succumbed to his might

A rock and roll soldier
A rock and roll warrior
Wisdom of ancient times
And keeper of the sacred heart

Spent all his life holding us all under his sway
Killing dragons and demons in his wake
The master of the moon
The tamer of the wolves

Holy diver of the midnight seas
You dived in the minds of those who cannot see
Through your death you left us life
You'll live forever, through the old, through the young

Gazing at stars riding the waves to the sun
On the horizon crushing a tower made of stone
Scream his name and never walk alone
On the silver mountain top

A rock and roll soldier
A rock and roll warrior
Wisdom of ancient times
And keeper of the sacred heart

Holy diver of the midnight seas
You dived in the minds of those who cannot see
Through your death you left us life
You'll live forever, through the old, through the young

And the giant died in glory and in peace
In a rainbow gliding through the seas
Track Name: Interpretación
Music: HESS
Lyrics: Hess

La memoria se deja perder en mi sueño
Deja fluir la más pura fuente de saber
Y por la noche en su máxima intensidad
¿No falseará lo que ha de conservar?

Como una nube que,
La vida desvanecerá
Hacia el abismo
De la tierra caerá

Evocando la irrealidad
Y frente al mundo callar
Ciegos que no ven más allá
Son extraños a mi integridad

¿Qué sería la humanidad sin su enfermedad?
Esperando lo que nunca llegará
¿Qué sería la enfermedad sin su malicia?
Olvidando lo que suelen olvidar

Buscando destruir
Lo indestructible de mi ser
Perdiendo la razón
Que aquellos temen perder

Evocando la irrealidad
Y frente al mundo callar
Ciegos que no ven más allá
Son extraños a mi integridad

Desesperación, desrealización
Será que nunca se ocultó
Mentidor por mentido
Revolución por involución

Como el esclavo es,
Sometido a su Dios
Tal es el desertor
A su falsa convicción

Evocando la irrealidad
Y frente al mundo callar
Ciegos que no ven más allá
Son extraños
Evocando la irrealidad
Y frente al mundo callar
Ciegos que ya no ven la verdad
Son extraños a mi integridad
Track Name: Sailor's Cross
Music& Lyrics: Schefer

I am a sailor
Heading out to the sea
On the prow
I feel the wind on my face

I head towards
The Caribbean Sea
The Missile Crisis
Will be my baptism of fire

When U2s discovered Soviet missiles

I am John
My ship’s Belgrano Cruiser
We received orders
To make the Cuban blockade

My position
Antiaircraft
battery
Saved my life
A sailor named Ariel

Upon returning we got the tattoo of a cross

October 1962
The world was close to confrontation
USSR ‘gainst U.S.
And the threat of nuclear annihilation

I am proud
Of my father’s story
I’ll remember it
Every day of my life

I have tattooed
The same cross as my old man
In Heaven or Hell
One day we’ll meet again

Caravaca Cross protect me until that day

USSR and USA
CIA vs. KGB
Washington, Moscow and Fidel
My old man and his friend Ariel

I am a sailor…
I wear a cross on my skin…
I am a sailor…
I wear a cross on my skin…
Track Name: Perpetual Flight
Music: Schefer
Lyrics: Dufour, Hess

Born in the land of great men
The sky of this region full of wisdom
In these winds it is heard
The whisper of heroes

Always faithful to your beliefs
Determined to remain silent
Under the leader's right hand
Following the laws
Following your beliefs

In this war you knew how to fight
A cross mirrors your bravery
At a time when the soil was red
You walked away and you started to fly

Pride in my soul
(Pride in my soul)
Fighting your war
(I’ll fight your war)

A message of peace you sought to bring
A web of deceit under this bloody crown of kings
Prisoner half your life
A dark room
Only for you

There’s only one way of doing things
No matter how painful for the weak
Maybe few understand
The message you left

Pride in my soul
(Pride in my soul)
Fighting your war
(I’ll fight your war)

Doomed to oblivion
Of those who can’t hear you
Seventh and only host of this hell
With lies they tried to hide your honour
Labelled madman in the face of History

But I know
In my blood lies the truth
The lineage, the pride is pure
Track Name: Boleskine House
Music: Schefer, Martarello
Lyrics: Dufour, Hess
Guest Vocals: Ariel Hess

On the southeastern shore of Loch Ness
Rises a mansion, once an ancient abbey
Where scorched corpses never departed the earth
Home to wicked ineffable horrors

Its name descends from Baal
The Babylonian God
Years of tireless search for Crowley's holy shrine
Sand on the roof to find spirits' signs

Boleskine House
Boleskine House
Evil's lurking on your walls
Earthly gates to Eastern Halls

Boleskine House
Boleskine House
Where wraiths and demons congregate
Under a Pyramid of Magick

“Look not so deeply into words and letters; for this Mystery hath been hidden by the Alchemists. Compose the sevenfold into a fourfold regimen; and when thou hast understood thou mayest make symbols; but by playing child's games with symbols thou shalt never understand.”

One night it began, the Abramelin Ritual
The rebirth from the bowels of Hades
Unleashing the four deadliest beasts ever seen
He tried to tame and compel them to serve Light

At every Egyptian night
He invoked his angel Aiwass
His holy Guardian, the Enlightened One
Crowley's source of power to fulfil Thelema

Summoned by the Brethren
The rite brought to a halt
The Assyrian curse fell upon the house
Never to be stopped again

Boleskine House
Boleskine House
Under deep blue light
In the Aeon of the Child

Boleskine House
Boleskine House
Patrolled by a monster in the lake
Haunted by a severed head

Never again did the magician return
And other owners bore the rite's brunt
The actor who fell from fame to disgrace
The soldier who shot himself in the head
And young Jimmy who shouldn't have played
With the evil forces of darkness
Boleskine House, Scottish doors to Khem’s land
Mysteries unknown revealed across the mantle of stars

Boleskine House
Boleskine House
Evil's lurking on your walls
Earthly gates to Eastern Halls

Boleskine House
Boleskine House
Under deep blue light
In the Aeon of the Child

Boleskine Mansion still stands there
Scarcely vegetated on the banks of the lake
A halo of mystery enshrouding its structure
Black clouds hovering over the place

Fraser's Family Cemetery
Embellishing its name
Boleskine House, sacred Crowley’s shrine
Home to legends within legends of dark lore

Its name descends from Baal
The Babylonian God
Years of tireless search for Crowley's holy shrine
Home to legends within legends of dark lore
