Infinity

Mother watch your children
The iron fist of fear is ruling our lives
It's not too late to change the course
We can make this world a better place to be in

How much more do we want until we're satisfied?
What happens when we have what we want?
Acquiring more, still there's never enough
We forget those who really are in need

The end is near, so they say
Selling peace with guns

Infinity - Where do we go from here?
Infinity - Where do we go from here?
Infinity - Where do we go?
Infinity - Where do we go from here?

Guns spitting message of peace everywhere
Is it really that we don't care?
See mercenaries of fear selling love
Telling salvation comes from above
Arrogance and fear walking hand in hand
We must see that there's much more to life than this

Mother see your children
Make us understand and help us to find the way
The answers lie inside
They are locked inside to the vault of truth for us
It's time to spread the world around
Be yourself and do what you want to do with your life
Remember, you get just what you give
You reap all what you sow
You are in charge of your own life

Infinity - Where do we go from here?
Infinity - Where do we go from here?
Infinity - Where do we go?
Infinity - Where do we go from here?

You make your own way
As long as you are here
Find your place in life
Make your dreams come true
There's so much more than this
A million ways to live
Unlock the door
To the universe with love
Free your soul

    The Art Of War

    If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

    I stand alone and gaze upon the battlefield
    Wasteland is all that’s left after the fight
    And now I’m searching a new way to defeat my enemy
    Bloodshed I’ve seen enough of death and pain

    I will run, they will hunt me in vain
    I will hide, they’ll be searching
    I’ll regroup, feign retreat they’ll pursue
    Coup de grace I will win but never fight

    That’s the Art of War
    That's the Art of War

    Breaking the will to fight among the enemy
    Force them to hunt me they will play my game
    And play by my rules I will be close but still untouchable
    No more will I see suffering an pain

    They will find me no more Ill be gone
    I will have them surrounded
    They will yield without fight overrun
    Coup de grace I will win but never fight

    That's the Art of War
    That's the Art of War

    Broken and lost
    Tired of war
    They’ll surrender to me
    Caught in my trap
    There’s no way out
    Fail never again never again


    I will run, they will hunt me in vain
    I will hide, they’ll be searching
    I’ll regroup, feign retreat they’ll pursue
    Coup de grace I will win but never fight

    That's the Art of War
    That's the Art of War
    That's the Art of War
    That's the Art of War

    In The Name Of God

    Hide from the public eye, choose to appear when it suits you
    Claim you're just, killing women and children
    Fight, when you choose to fight, hide in a cave when you're hunted
    Like a beast spawned from hell, utilizing fear

    Chosen by god or a coward insane?
    Stand up and show me your face!

    (suicidal, in a trance)
    (a religious army)
    (fight without a uniform and hide in the crowd)
    (call it holy, call it just)
    (authorized by heaven)
    (leave your wounded as they die, and call it gods will)

    Run when its time to pay, fear consequence of your action
    Reappear, when you're almost forgotten
    Dream of a world in peace, yet you cause pain and destruction
    Kill your own, a response of your actions

    Chosen by god or a coward insane?
    Stand up and show me your face!

    (suicidal, in a trance)
    (a religious army)
    (fight without a uniform and hide in the crowd)
    (call it holy, call it just)
    (authorized by heaven)
    (leave your wounded as they die, and call it gods will)

    (captured in all your lies, fear is in your eyes)
    (creature who's gone insane, your war is in vain)
    (trapped in a cage of stone, we'll destroy your home)
    (consequence of your action)

    (captured in all your lies, fear is in your eyes)
    (creature who's gone insane, your war is in vain)
    (trapped in a cage of stone, we'll destroy your home)
    (consequence of your action)

    Chosen by god or a coward insane?
    Stand up and show me your face!

    This is very good Picasso, Timo Tolkki on lead guitar is amazing; I especially like this one:

    [VBTUBE]R-ER5---jSk[/VBTUBE]

    On a side note, their albums' art work are the creation of none other than "Derek Riggs" --The creator of Iron Maiden's Eddie horror art work--.
    they are very talented , 2 of my favorites for them

    Whenever I think power metal, I think Blind Guardian.

    [VBTUBE]CZ_VFJn2kJM[/VBTUBE]

    Also Helloween stand out especially their earliest albums, although they're more like speed, but still fit in awesomeness. There aren't many pure power metal bands who can be classified as excellent as blind guardian and those who do almost make it a mix of something like heavy and power metal .... blind gaurdian though define the genre, they're too special.

    Some two years ago, though, I came across Persuader, some really good modern power metal:

    [VBTUBE]YkyYgF7g6_k[/VBTUBE]
    Now they are out of both singers:p .. hoping for a very gd replacement.. love this band.. I hate Tarja for what she did to the band but then again she has a powerful voice..
