Destiny intervened by rejoining this iconic band of veteran musicians for a second go around. After walking their separate paths and taking different musical avenues, they have come full circle. The band hit the studio and raided their vault of songs that have been tucked away for some time now, to see if the magic was still there. The outcome of that fateful journey is their new album, fittingly entitled Rebirth.

LYRICS

 

CIRCLE OF LIGHT
Lighting a fire, a torch in the night
Seeking the prism, the circle of light
Looking for the, circle of light
Lord of the fire, lord of the fire
The circle of light
Riders on horseback, through the wind and the snow
Demons surround us, feel fire below
Looking for the, circle of light
Lord of the fire, lord of the fire
The circle of light
And for the lonely man
You are the secret, I know that no man can
Fight the evil eyes in a moment of surprise
You’ve got to learn the secret of the circle of light
The circle of light, the circle of light, the circle of light,
The Circle Of Light
Through the wind storm
I will never, never stop
See my nemesis, find myself on top
Awake from my nightmare, I look to the skies
A bright constellation, it’s the circle of light
Looking for the, circle of light
Lord of the fire, lord of the fire
The circle of light
And for the lonely man
You are the secret
I know that no man can
Fight the evil eyes in a moment of surprise
You’ve got to learn the secret of the circle of light
CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN
There are two kinds of people
Ones plastic, ones real
We like the real ones
That know how to feel
No more lying
Idle gossip
Circus comes to town
The plastic people leave
When the circus comes to town
Judge a book by its cover
Is for people with guilt
They’re gonna pay for their evil
In the houses they’ve built
See the splendor
Join the circus
Circus comes to town
The plastic people leave
When the circus comes to town
In the tears of a clown
You can see the laughter
Of the fools wrapped up in their cocoon
Circus comes to town
The plastic people leave
When the circus comes to town
SAIL INTO THE HEAVENS
Totally at ease, slipping in the breeze
Watching all the trees, fly past
Up into the night, see the Northern Lights
Sail into the Heavens tonight
Feeling in my soul, lose of all control
I care no more about, simple life
Hell is on the freeze, satan’s on his knees
Sail into the Heavens tonight
On windy nights the bell tolls twice
The wood nymphs sing their songs
I’m leaving up to reach once more
My home where I belong
Eternity at peace, feel the golden fleece
Slowly slipping out of sanity
Now I’m going down, the crowd is all around
Sail into the Heavens tonight
MODERN DAY VAMPIRE
In the mist of a London night
The beast has come to prey
Run for cover, be near your lover
And face the judgment day
Beady eyes, frantic cries
Screams of agony
Take hold of the cross
Fear your loss
Vampire in the street
Hold on, pray hard, there’s blood on your door
No use, he’s loose, he’s coming for more
In the bed of clay and dirt
He sings his lullaby
On the shores of foreign lands
He fears the sunny skies
Bloody fangs, rattling chains
Stale the smell of doom
Insatiable thirst, fear the worst
Catch him in his tomb
Hold on, pray hard, there’s blood on your door
No use, he’s loose, he’s coming for more
God sends down his angels fast
Revenge for satan’s deeds
A fist of strength and a kick in the ass
Is what the devil needs
Wooden stake, earth will quake
Drive it through his heart
Screams from hell, the banshee yells
But that’s only the start
Hold on, pray hard, there’s blood on your door
No use, he’s loose, he’s coming for more
REBIRTH
In the eve of man
When this thing began
We gained the right of life
Then the devil’s toys
Made a fearful noise
And began the age of strife
But I’ll never ever go that way again
And you’ll never see the likes of me back there
There was a time when I was a fool
And I slept in a bed of black
Then I felt the wind lay its’ hand on me
And I’m never turning back
I said I’ll never ever go that way again
And you’ll never see the likes of me back there
Death and fear to those who seek
The ways of Lucifer
But I’ll never ever go that way again
And you’ll never see the likes of me back there
Time will heal your wounds of sin
He’ll call your name and new life you’ll begin
In the eve of man
When this thing began
We gained the right of life
Then the devil’s toys
Made a fearful noise
And began the age of strife
But I’ll never ever go that way again
And you’ll never see the likes of me back there
Time will heal your wounds of sin
He’ll call your name and new life you’ll begin
A new life you’ll begin
REST IN PEACE
Cold nights, starlights
People blend with the neon sights
Hold on, dream on
It’s got to end before the winter song
I’m holding to one last dream
To make my life complete
I’ve got make that one last trip
Down that nightmare street
Sad songs, make me strong
I know I’m right, but they say I’m wrong
Live hard, die quick
I often wonder if it’s all a trick
I’m holding to one last dream
To make my life complete
I’ve got make that one last trip
Down that nightmare street
Can’t you see, the sand clock flows
Cuz come tomorrow, I’ll have to go
Then you’ll realize, you’ll see through clear eyes
That it’s my time to rest in peace
Fly high, touch the sky
I often wonder why oh why
Rest now, kill your fears
I saw the raindrops looked just like your tears
I’m holding to one last dream
To make my life complete
I’ve got make that one last trip
Down that nightmare street
Then you’ll realize, you’ll see through clear eyes
That it’s my time to rest in peace
SILENT NIGHT LONELY NIGHT
When the sun comes up, I look right next to me
Empty space is where, you used to be
In the silence of these walls there’s echoing
All the happiness, your laughter used to bring
In my life, there’s hell I’ve got to pay
Since you’ve left, I live to end the day
Won’t you listen, can’t you see
I’m so lonely won’t you please come back to me
It’s been eternity I’ve been waiting for you
Living in silent hope dreaming what we used to do
As the years go by, I slip into daze
Thoughts of you and I my mind cannot erase
In my life, there’s hell I’ve got to pay
Since you’ve left, I live to end the day
Won’t you listen, can’t you see
I’m so lonely won’t you please come back to me
People pass me by, they look into my eyes
Coldest eyes I’ve ever seen
Why can’t we start to see, the way love ought to be
Baby, please come back to me
In my life, there’s hell I’ve got to pay
Since you’ve left, I live to end the day
Won’t you listen, can’t you see
I’m so lonely won’t you please come back to me
Baby, please come back to me
EVERY DOG HAS ITS DAY
The way she looks, into your eyes
The way she steals your heart
At times she owns, your very soul
You think you’ll never part
Then one day you’ll turn around
Your heart and soul is crying on the ground
Remember the words you hear me say
Every dog has its day
Then one day when your tears are gone
You’ll see her in your dreams
Her eyes are red, but her tears are blue
Still you’re laughing at her screams
You’re slipping into fear
And every time you hear
Her voice you’ll want to say
Every dog has its day
And today your time has come
Then one day you’ll turn around
Your heart and soul is crying on the ground
Remember the words you hear me say
Every dog has its day
ON A CLEAR NIGHT
Snow in the trees
Stars in the sky
Wind in my hair
A tear in my eye
The world flies by
Like a breath that is gone
And I feel like I’m gonna lose control
On a clear night, I can see forever
On a clear night, I can see your face
On a clear night, I can feel that peace
That somebody’s watching out for me
I felt that pain on a cold winter’s day
Screaming for justice watching you go away
Once you are gone you’re a flash in the pan
And I feel like I’m gonna lose control
On a clear night, I can see forever
On a clear night, I can see your face
On a clear night, I can feel that peace
That somebody’s watching out for me
We can be free from the fears of life and death
He’ll set you free
We can live life in our paradise tonight
On a clear night, I can see forever
On a clear night, I can see your face
On a clear night, I can feel that peace
That somebody’s watching out me
TRY TO STOP ME NOW
I found the meaning was lying in my grasp
Every time I reached for it, it seemed to slip and pass
I climbed the mountain to search for peace of mind
The only words the prophet spoke were seek and ye shall find
Try to stop me now
Now time and tables turn, I’m headed to the sky
Headed for my rightful place, let no man break my stride
I’ve struggled all my life, and now the chance is mine
So kneel before me and I’ll leave you all behind
Try to stop me now
Someday, one day, I’ll make you fear me
Oh don’t you hear me
Our love, will be a cold love
Will be a dead love
Or will you rise above
Try to stop me now
I found the meaning was lying in my grasp
Every time I reached for it, it seemed to slip and pass
I climbed the mountain in search to peace of mind
The only words the prophet spoke were seek and ye shall find
So now you try to stop me now
KING OF THE BEASTS
In the dark of jungle, I can feel your heat
Find your way through the forest, where we two can meet
And don’t bother about a thing
You’ll have enough to worry, when you feel my sting
Cuz I’m the king of the beasts
You’re on my list
I rule this land, with iron fists
Now when the moon is hiding, and the tigers cry
And if the serpent is rising, then it’s your turn to die
Find your way into my lair
You’ll be my prey but baby
You know you won’t care
Cuz I’m the king of the beasts
You’re on my list
I rule this land, with iron fists
Then in the night, I’ll take you down
And I’ll show you, who’s the ruler of the land
Sign your life away, and you’ll be free
To live with me, eternally
Now I’m dying to meet you
Beneath the stars
Come on and meet your leader
He’ll take you oh so far
And don’t bother about a thing
You’ll have enough to worry, when you feel my sting
Cuz I’m the king of the beasts
You’re on my list
I rule this land, with iron fists
