Song lyrics[edit]

I've searched through all the ages
To find the hidden truth
The secret of the rainbow
Will never be revealed

Saxon (1979)[edit]

All songs written by Biff Byford, Paul Quinn, Graham Oliver, Steve Dawson and Pete Gill.

  • First of all the ages
    Lies hidden neath the ice
    The man who finds the secret
    Holds the power of life
    • Frozen Rainbow
  • I've searched through all the ages
    To find the hidden truth
    The secret of the rainbow
    Will never be revealed
    • Frozen Rainbow
  • I don't need your religion
    It ain't nothin' to me
    I don't want nobody pushin'
    Need to be free
    • Judgement Day
  • I can feel it in the breeze
    It's blowin' through the trees
    You can see it in the sky
    It makes you wonder why
    • Judgement Day
  • People pushin' like I don't know
    I'm gonna live my life like I wanted to
    My hopes shot down, my backs to the wall
    But I've got my pride
    They can't take it all
    • Backs to the Wall
  • They struggle you down when you try to get up
    You can't have doubts in your mind
    Take the rough with the smooth
    You got nothing to lose
    All you need's the will to survive
    • Still Fit to Boogie
  • Look here, my friends, I've got to tell you
    The word is out, the word is out
    Trouble's coming, peace is over
    The king has hung the militia guard

Both on separate flights
Strangers in the night
Going nowhere

All songs written by Biff Byford, Paul Quinn, Graham Oliver, Steve Dawson and Pete Gill.

    Ya got nothing to lose when you're there
    There at the bottom
    Ya gotta stand up
    Stand up for your rights
    • Stand Up and Be Counted
  • This is Scandinavian one-o-one
    Flight from Hawaii coming out of the sun
    Kennedy should be in sight
    We can't see a thing here in the night

    There's no radio, no sign of life
    This is Scandinavian one-o-one
    For God's sake, get the ground lights on
    • 747 (Strangers in the Night)
  • She's got wheels, wheels of steel
    She's got wheels of steel
    Wheels of steel
    Talking 'bout my wheels of steel
    • Wheels of Steel
  • There's a new day dawning
    It's here to set me free, yeah
    I can see the changes coming
    It's coming over me, over me
    • See the Light Shining
  • Do everything you believe to be right
    Doing it all the time
    Fighting the fight you believe to be right
    Doing it all the time
    • Suzie Hold On
  • Come the wheels of terror crushing all before
    Chews you to the bone to hear the monsters roar
    With the clash of iron the battles never won
    For the forgotten soldier it's only just begun
    • Machine Gun

Strong Arm of the Law (1980)[edit]

Surrounded by light
Tearing this place to the ground

    With heavy metal thunder

    • Heavy Metal Thunder
  • The chaplain and the gardener
    Have told me how to die

    I'm on the final journey
    • To Hell and Back Again

    They thought it was an easy bust

  • If there's one thing I love
    It's flying high above
    Breaking through the barrier of sound
    It's just like making love
    When you're up above
    Riding in my bird of silver steel

  • Some take the fame
    And some take the blame
    Maybe they will and maybe they won't
    Tonight...

Denim and Leather
Brought us all together
It was you that set the spirit free

All songs written by Saxon.

    Steaming red hot pistons see the wheels flash by
    Hear the whistle blowing steaming down the track
    If I ever had my way I'd bring the princess back one day
  • I was born on the back streets on the rotten side of town

    • Never Surrender
  • I was lying on the beach taking the rays

    • Play It Loud
  • I'm sick of people saying our music is too loud

    • Play It Loud
  • See the people, feel the power

    Just like thunder the crowds began to roar
    Were you there, did ya know, did ya see all the show
    There was magic in the air
  • Fought the vigilante at the end of our first tour
    We made a lot of friends there we'll see them all next year
    As we fought the big deadline, oh, we won't forget the days
    We rode the silver eagle right across the USA
    • Midnight Rider
  • There's a fire in the sky
    There's a feeling in the air
    When the ground starts to tremble
    The first attack is here
    You won't stand a chance
    When the missiles start to fly
    They never tell the people
    Till the holocaust is here
    • Fire in the Sky
  • Denim and Leather
    Brought us all together
    It was you that set the spirit free

    I've touched the Alamo

Innocence Is No Excuse (1985)[edit]

    We‘ll take what we're given and never lose sight
    We‘ve all been to the edge and back
    We're leaving no one behind
    • Ashes to Ashes

Into the Labyrinth (2009)[edit]

Just follow the rules, that's what they said to me. You got to get an education, you got to forget about the blues. But I was hooked on rock and roll, I got a demon in my soul. I got one thing to say, you got to let the music play.

All lyrics written by Biff Byford.

  • Just follow the rules that's what they said to me
    You got to get an education you got to forget about the blues
    But I was hooked on rock and roll I got a demon in my soul
    I got one thing to say you got to let the music play
    • Live to Rock
  • I'm writing you this letter
    From a dark and lonely place
    I hope it finds you well
    I long for your embrace but I sit here in my solitude
    I fear the worst for I have seen a vision the vision of my curse
    Of my curse
    • The Letter
  • Dig my friends set him free
    Read the words the prophecy
    Death will come on swiftest wings
    Whoever moves this sleeping king
    Carved in stone the book of death
    The pharaohs curse will take your breath
    • Valley of the Kings
  • You called my name
    Deep in the coldest blackest night
    You saved my life
    I heard your voice deep in the night
    But in my nightmare I start to scream
    In my nightmare this is no dream
    • Voice
  • Prepare yourself for anarchy soon the end will come
    Sit there and delude yourself there's nowhere left to run
    The seas will rise across the land and sweep us all away
    Everything is changing soon that's the price we pay
    • Protect Yourselves
  • Did you see the signs has the time begun
    It was the seventh star of the seventh sun
    Round and round this circle turns
    The planets all align this is the time
    This is the hour we've waited for the sign
    • Come Rock of Ages (The Circle Is Complete)

Call to Arms (2011)[edit]

They never thought we could make it but that was never the case. We made a vow to each other that nothing could break. Just stand your ground against the odds, that’s what we have to do. Together we can face the worst that life can throw at you.

All songs written by Saxon.

  • Defenders of the faith to you this vow we make
    When our backs against the wall we’ll not surrender
    You may be young or old there’s no difference at all
    Just raise your glasses high and sing our song
    • Back in 79
  • They never thought we could make it but that was never the case
    We made a vow to each other that nothing could break
    Just stand your ground against the odds
    That’s what we have to do
    Together we can face the worst
    That life can throw at you
    • Surviving Against the Odds
  • Mystic powers in your hand
    Take the blade and free the land
    Unite the kingdom from sea to sea
    Excalibur your destiny
    • Mists of Avalon
  • Resistance is futile
    There’s no where to hide
    We’ve run out of options
    We flow with the tide
    We wait for tomorrow
    To see if it comes
    Defences are pointless
    It’s inevitable
    • When Doomsday Comes

Sacrifice (2013)[edit]

If you wanna make a life playing in a rock and roll band, you've got to take a chance and don't look back. There ain't no easy way, you can't fake it, you've got to be yourself, don't follow the pack. When it seems you'll never get a break, you've got to make a vow to keep the faith.

All songs written by Saxon.

  • Wood and steel, gilt and glass
    Everything was made first class
    Nothing spared, the finest in the world

    We see them now in picture books
    Built by you on Belfast docks
    The greatest ships the world has ever seen

    • Made in Belfast
  • Through the years, the memories fade
    Forgotten now inside his grave
    The first in line, an empire lost in time

    Until a farmer breaks the seal
    The terracotta tomb revealed
    To rise again for all the world to see

    • Guardians of the Tomb
  • If you wanna make a life playing in a rock and roll band
    You've got to take a chance and don't look back
    There ain't no easy way, you can't fake it
    You've got to be yourself, don't follow the pack
    When it seems you'll never get a break
    You've got to make a vow to keep the faith
    • Stand up and Fight

Other[edit]

  • Blasting chunks of magma into the stratosphere
    A thousand scarlet sunsets the land, a sea of fear
    To the east of Java basking in the sea
    The sign of Krakatoa is rising from the deep
    • Krakatoa, from the 2007 compilation album The Very Best of Saxon (1979-1988)
