Song lyrics[edit]

Heavy Metal is the law
that keeps us all united free
A law that shatters earth and hell
Heavy Metal can't be beaten
by any dynasty
We're all wizards fightin' with our spell

Walls of Jericho (1985)[edit]

  • I have to think for myself and then act
    In conformity of my own thoughts
    No one should tell me what's wrong and what's right
    Why don't you leave me alone
    Set me free
    • Ride the Sky, written by Kai Hansen
  • Where is he? the promised saviour, the one who'll save the earth
    Perhaps he'll come to bury us, but then it'll be too late
    Who are they? who are the phantoms? who will end our lives?
    It's you and me! You and me! Open up your eyes
    • Phantoms of Death, written by Kai Hansen
  • Metal invaders, the gods on their ride
    Sworn to bring metal, mayhem tonight
    • Metal Invaders, written by Kai Hansen
  • Heavy Metal is the law that keeps us all united free
    A law that shatters earth and hell
    Heavy Metal can't be beaten by any dynasty
    We're all wizards fightin' with our spell
    • Heavy Metal (Is the Law), written by Michael Weikath and Kai Hansen
  • In other worlds the children die
    Lacking food ill from a fly
    Oppressed by troops to tame their land
    It's all the same again

    If any man is free on earth
    Then tormentors steal his birth
    They slam gun butts in his face
    And leave his woman choked in mace

    • How Many Tears, written by Michael Weikath

Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. 1 (1987)[edit]

  • There's no use in hangin' all around
    You're a king, can't you see your crown
    Look into my eyes
    So many things are waiting to be done
    you just need a friend
    Together we will sing along
    • I'm Alive, written by Kai Hansen
  • Oh, I hear you say
    "That is the way of the world"
    No, hear what I say
    "I wanna do so much in my way"
    • A Little Time, written by Michael Kiske
  • In the streets on Halloween
    There's something going on
    No way to escape the power unknown
    In the streets on Halloween
    The spirits will arise
    Make your choice, it's hell or paradise
    Ah - It's Halloween
    Ah - It's Halloween... tonight!
    • Halloween, written by Kai Hansen
Did you make your choice?
You're the Keeper of the seven keys
Our only hope's your victory
So follow the sign
  • Now that you've made your choice
    Follow the sign

    Did you make your choice?
    You're the Keeper of the seven keys
    Our only hope's your victory
    So follow the sign

    • Follow the Sign, written by Kai Hansen and Michael Weikath

Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. 2 (1988)[edit]

  • In the sky a mighty eagle
    doesn't care 'bout what's illegal
    on its wings the rainbow's light
    it's flying to eternity
    • Eagle Fly Free, written by Michael Weikath
  • There's just one way I see
    the way I think it's right for me
    you say to me I will repent what I do
    if it's right I'll stop before
    • You Always Walk Alone, written by Michael Kiske
  • Look at the drunk man, look into his eyes
    See his strong hands
    But tomorrow they will tremble cold as ice
    See the drunk man, try to ask him why
    He will laugh, and tomorrow he will tell you another lie
    There's a fight in his head he cannot win
    Getting stronger, makes him mad, burning sin
    • You Always Walk Alone
  • And it's all in vain
    When you're living with pain
    Reap not goods you have grown
    By your own
    Feelings you like
    Disappear overnight
    You sip up every grin
    Free to win
    • Rise and Fall, written by Michael Weikath
  • We are credulous idiots
    And won't understand what they plan
    We march with the times
    It's what they expect and we do
    Why don't you open your eyes
    To undercover all of these lies
    I think you won't accept this
    Go oppose with your fist
    Fight for your rights
    • We Got the Right, written by Michael Kiske
  • We believe that the phenomena of nature
    Are the expression of infinitive intelligence
    We express our belief that all forms of life
    Are manifestations of spirit
    And thus, all men are children of God
    • Save Us, written by Kai Hansen
  • Life's too short to cry, long enough to try
    • March of Time, written by Kai Hansen
  • From our lives' beginning on
    We are pushed in little forms
    No one asks us how we like to be
    In school they teach you what to think
    But everyone says different things
    But they're all convinced that
    They're the ones to see
  • There's a million ways to see the things in life
    A million ways to be the fool
    In the end of it, none of us is right
    Sometimes we need to be alone
    • I Want Out
  • You're the keeper of the seven keys
    You locked up the seven seas
    And the seer of visions can now rest in peace
    There ain't no more demons and no more disease
    And, mankind, live up, you're free again
    Yes the tyrant is dead, he is gone, overthrown
    You have given our souls back to light
    • Keeper of the Seven Keys, written by Michael Weikath

Pink Bubbles Go Ape (1991)[edit]

  • Some people are much too smart
    They know everything before it starts

    Eating wisdom with the pail
    No wonder when it sticks

    In your darkest hour I will sing this song for you

    Cry and tell
    And slander
    Yell and grumble well
    So loud for heaven's sake

    Pink bubbles go ape!

  • We're the kids of the century
    We're lost in our games
    No time for the memories we look in the haze

    Let's keep on crying
    But sometimes I don't wanna fall
  • Now it's time for happiness, stay hard and trust your fate

    When Mickey Mouse must go away
    • Your Turn, written by Michael Kiske

Chameleon (1993)[edit]

  • I was born when April guaranteed a sexual renaissance,
    And today we're all faced with death, rubbers and AIDS.
    In '68 some people went out to fight for freedom,
    They would never ever have thought that their children wear ties.
    And if you come to San Francisco -
    You're gonna meet some broken people there.
    Revolution now!

  • It’s getting sicker frame by frame
    You’re always staring at the same
    What is a lie, what is the truth?

  • Sixteen years have passed since he,
    one perfect of his kind,
    the Casanova of his time,

    Look at him what did he become,
    who is he now?

    Just some odd relics of old worlds dusty mankind
