Song lyrics[edit]

In the night,
the seawinds are calling
And the city is far far away
Soon the sea turns to darkness
It is night and the seawinds are calling
Seawinds call, seawinds call

    One for all - it's the human key
    All in all

    • Hellhammer
  • Now you've jumped off from the ride

Too late to stop it now
A spark that's lit a fire burning high

All lyrics written by Accept and Deaffy.

  • The judge's hammer falls
    Eruption in the court room
    The cry goes up: "It's anarchy!"

    Heaven knows I tried
    To be like you

Death Row (1994)[edit]

A thousand years from now on
The flame of life's gone out
The earth - a frozen wasteland
No living trace - no sounds

The world did die in anguish
The ashes turned to dust
Fire and ice - blackness of night
Man's evolution has lost

All lyrics written by Accept and Deaffy.

  • This universe of hatred
    Aggression is the force
    Heading for oblivion
    We're on collision-course

    Evolution's over
    The devil has prevailed
    Heaven screams for vengeance
    This is judgement day

    • Sodom & Gomorra
  • Heroes - keep dying
    Nations - dividing
    Principles - they're gone
    It's war

    Wallstreet - buy in politics
    Jesus - up for sale
    Do anything - for money
    I'm a whore

    • What Else
  • They terrorize and
    tyrannize democracies
    Their narrow minds still nothing
    learned from history
    The seeds of hate acquired from
    their ancestry
    Spreading like a cancer in societies
    • Stone Evil
  • We buried tolerance and our respect
    Became a breeding ground for social dismay
    Whatever happened to the love-generation
    With black and white hand in hand side by side
    • Prejudice
  • Generation Clash
    Generation Clash - you got
    the guts to go
    Generation Clash -
    kiss those times goodbye
    • Generation Clash II
  • A thousand years from now on
    The flame of life's gone out
    The earth - a frozen wasteland
    No living trace - no sounds

    The world did die in anguish
    The ashes turned to dust
    Fire and ice - blackness of night
    Man's evolution has lost

Riding on Teutonic terror
We will... Give em' the axe
We will... Give em' the axe

thinking with just one mind
Branded and pierced,
fists in the air tonight
Millions of lives,
brought together by common ground
A family entwined,
one global nation profound

All lyrics written by Mark Tornillo.

  • So cold and lonely it seems so long since someone was here

    With flags and flames, the ranks and the names of those who died to be free
    • Shadow Soldiers
  • What's wrong, with this picture
    The poor get poorer and the rich get richer
    Banks ready to foreclose..... "hard luck”

    It's time to unify..... "stand up"
    Get up on your feet

    Tensions rise, push the needle to red
    Pick up the tempo, it's getting late
    You've got that inner need...... accelerate

Blind Rage (2014)[edit]

All songs written by Peter Baltes, Wolf Hoffmann and Mark Tornillo.

    Upon a silver mountain a message loud and clear
    Screaming with a vengeance that we will forever hear
