Testi di “Raising Hell” dei Messerschmitt

1 – RAISING HELL

Blood on the city and the slain on the rise
Humans will cannibalize
Stopping at nothing, the power of steel
Tonight will be revealed

Where is your fortune now?
The gold, the glory, the triumph, the fame
For souls who share no honour,
A land without a name

Deafening the sound,
Heed the call of the revolution
The one solution’s coming down
It got me raising hell

Raising Hell! Raising Hell! Raising Hell!

This is war! For severance
This is war! Resistance!
This is war! For the chance of outliving the Seventh Seal
Got me raising hell…

Breaching the limits, velocity burns
Way past the point of return
Demons and angels, a spiraling fall
The writing’s on the wall

We belong with the few and the proud
Extremes cannot co-exist
Dark and Light – the final fight
With mankind in the midst

Deafening the sound
Loud above the din – creation
A separation by the plow
It got me raising hell

Raising Hell! Raising Hell! Raising Hell!

SOLO

This is war! For sustenance
This is war! Deliverance
This is war! You got me raising hell…

Raising Hell! Raising Hell! Raising Hell! Raising Hell!


2 – LIKE WATCHING A NEW CHILD BORN

Walking on, you get awared
It’s learning to deal with this life
Day by day, you realize,
Walk!
Slowly goes no turning back,
Walk! Walk!
If you’ve been woke up all night

Dawn looks like a blazing spell
I feel like I’m watching a new child born

So now I’m falling
With the slow turn of the world around
Time keeps going
I have to face I can lean on that

The stars look closer
Follow the traces in front of you
Don’t try to hide the way you live
The path gets wider just you walk

Once I felt, I was grabbed
Brought to defeat of men’s let downs
So much weird and distant shapes
Walk!
But now I’ve got them clear
Walk! Walk!
If you’ve been woke up all night

Dawn looks like a blazing spell
I feel like I’m watching a new child born

Now I’m falling
With the slow turn of the world around
Time keeps going
I have to face I can lean on that

SOLO

Dawn looks like a blazing spell
I feel like I’m watching a new child born

Now I’m falling
With the slow turn of the world around
Time keeps going
I have to face I can lean on that

The stars look closer
Follow the traces in front of you
Don’t try to hide the way you live
The path gets wider
Just you walk!


3 – GLIMPSE OF SHAME

Today I close my eyes
Everything comes back to me
Rice fields the road the village
Now I can see the way

I know where the pit is
I just have to stretch my hand
Men in black on the skyline
That’s all that I can see

… To save you is not a gain!
… To destroy you is not a loss!

No more the freshly dug ground
No yellow tarps on corpses
I’ve seen so many faces
Still frozen in a smirk

I don’t care about the truth today
All that I want
Is just clear words

Don’t want revenge!
The time has come to know what
Your eyes are really saying
So here I stand
C’mon, show me one glimpse of shame!

I’ve buried many men
Their mouths were all wide open
They say their souls will wonder
On what they have been on earth

SOLO

I don’t care about the truth today
All that I want is just clear words

Don’t want revenge!
The time has come to know what
Your eyes are really saying
So here I stand
C’mon, show me one glimpse of shame!

Now here he comes again
The lord and chief of torture
To answer just a question
… what makes a man “a man”


4 – BORN IN THE SLUMS OF ROME

Let’s look at this ancient town, it’s so full of sights
The town who named an empire that’s what the story is about
All novels tell about the beauty movies show its style
Tourists overcrowd the streets making a mess around

But there’s another side of this town
A side that’s standing on the edge
There’s people no one really cares about
Who live in Rome without a pledge

All my life walkin’ around in a dump like this
Over the art and the green just waste
I was born in the slums of Rome

Born in the slums of Rome
It’s a crown full of thorns
I was born in the slums,
Born in the slums of Rome

Behind a steamy window, it’s the real world
you write on it, just to kick it out
Kick it out!

SOLO

I know how hard it is to lean on no one
Leaving in those people’s eyes desire for revenge
I’ve learned what all men learn by being a child
In concrete snakes and beehives that now I have made mine

Desperate vibrations break the silence
Afternoon heat in the empty streets
Outside the world keeps on calling
We all are born in a slum like this

All my life walkin’ around
In a dump like this
Over the art and the green just waste
I was born in the slums of Rome

Old poor and wonderful town
Taught me to be fierce
I’m strict in an old bus back home, like a curse!
I was born in the slums of Rome

Born in the slums of Rome
It’s a crown full of thorns
I was born in the slums
Born in the slums of Rome

Born in the slums of Rome
It’s a crown full of thorns
I was born in the slums
Born in the slums of Rome


5 – HUNTER TODAY PREY THE NEXT DAY

Don’t wanna have a role in progress and technology
I take what I want, no hesitations and apologies

Come on! You always eat like…
Come on! …It was the last meal
Come on! You fuck like a beast
Come on! Your genes make a sumptuous feast

Game reserve is my reign
Just red blood is in my veins

Life’s amazing, but full of threats
No need to pretend, survival is my only gain
I’m the predator the top of the food chain
To kill me just a way..
A shot from a hunter better than me!

Hunter today, Prey the next day
Chase and escape

I know how hard life is, don’t believe in driving smiles
Fighting doesn’t scare me, I love life for what it is

Come on! You always eat like…
Come on! …It was the last meal
Come on! You fuck like a beast
Come on! Your genes make a sumptuous feast

Game reserve is my reign
Just red blood is in my veins

Life’s amazing but full of threats
No need to pretend, survival is my only gain
I’m the predator, the top of the food chain
To kill me just a way…
A shot from a hunter better than me!

SOLO

Hey prey! Now I’m near you
I’m ready to launch my deadly attack
You have to be very quick if you want to live
While you hide always watch your back

Life’s amazing, but full of threats
No need to pretend, survival is my only gain
I’m the predator, the top of the food chain
To kill me just a way…
A shot from a hunter better than me

Hunter today, Prey the next day
I’m king for a day!


6 – ONCE AGAIN

I can’t remember how long I’ve been on this piece of wood
Coming my way on a small and gentle wave
So much time I’ve wandered in this dark and boundless sea
That rocks me with her killer arms
No light around I can’t find the way back home
I wish the wind would bring my voice away

Once again
Once again
I wish the wind would bring my voice away
Once again

Now I’m just waiting for the last wave to kindly swallow me
Drowning to the final breath of my exciting life
Don’t want to hurt you but tonight I guess I will not come back home
Forgive me for the times I’ve left you waiting for me

Waiting for the last wave to kindly swallow me
Drowning to the final breath of my exciting life
Once again

SOLO

One: I was often wrong getting silly and chilly mood,
I should admit to be mistaken now I beg your mercy
Two: I loved the lifetime spent together, but never had a moment to tell you those sweet words
Three… Three… Three…

Goodbye!
Waiting for the last wave to kindly swallow me
Drowning to the final breath of my exciting life
Once again
Waiting for the last wave to kindly swallow me
Drowning to the final breath of my exciting life
Once again


7 – THE FINAL SCORE

Fire on the horizon
And every living thing seems dead
Poison into the water
From the carcass of a world gone mad

White and cold
Under all the ice and snow
Slipping down below the cracks
We vanish like a flame under the wax

And count the casualties
Of endless tragedies
And what have we got?

Ten thousand years of madness
Ten thousand years of madness

Lost beyond the lost,
This is the final score!
Lost beyond the lost,
This is the final score!

The price we paid
To bill of war
The final score

Dust onto the gravestone
Oxygen the weight of gold
Fading into starvation
To see the fate of man unfold

Eternal comes the night
There goes the will to fight
Of what have we got

SOLO

Ten thousand years of madness
Ten thousand years of madness

Lost beyond the lost
This is the final score!
Lost beyond the lost
This is the final score!

Lost beyond the lost
This is the final score!
Lost beyond the lost
This is the final score!

The price we pay
To bill of war
A final score


8 – BRAKELESS

Screaming my pistons, I taste gasoline
I fine-tuned my engine to jumpstart the green
Wind on my face, vibrations of steel
I wanna see asphalt slip under my wheels

Mind to the metal, I tread a narrow path
Back to the leather, I take my breath with death
A fight to the last lap to close the gap
Beat the spike trap

I live my life like a blind competition
I’m always ready to face the next turn
I just have to push the accelerator
Save the tire wear trying to stay back on track

Brakeless!
Down the hill, I’m brakeless
My long and winding road
Brakeless!

No care for the future it’s my simple law
I blaze thru the statelines adrenaline strong
I promised myself, I will not touch the brakes
Freedom to keep at full throttle for days

There is no game, religion is the speed
I will not look back, I will never concede
You’ll never hang around to see me bleed
Nor admit defeat

I live my life like a blind competition
I’m always ready to face the next turn
I burn the stages chasing my future
Hands on the steering it begins the fight

Brakeless!
Stop at nothing, brakeless
Once more before, I’m gone

SOLO

I live my life like a blind competition
I’m always ready to face the next turn
I just have to push the accelerator
Save the tire wear trying to stay back on track

Brakeless!
Down the hill, I’m brakeless
My long and winding road
Brakeless! Brakeless!
Brakeless!
