He was born in a far away hill
He showed his skills from an early age
Zeus is his father. He’s half God
Cause his mother is a mortal.

He is the strongest amongst mortals
Even stronger than many gods
But he is not immortal
So come and join my death squad

He is like no other man
He is one of a kind
Wise, strong and brave
But he will be my eternal slave

He will bite the dust
And seal his fate
He will be my eternal slave
Until he ends up in a grave

He is like no other man
He is one of a kind
Wise, strong and brave
But he will be my eternal slave

He will bite the dust
And seal his fate
He will be my eternal slave
Until he ends up in a grave
Until he ends up in a grave
Until he ends up in a grave

This new labour I will do
Although I’m tired of you
As soon as I complete the task
You will grant my freedom at last
Your excuses I will not accept
This is my last task­

So I warn you, foolish King
Before the next spring
Your precious present to you I’ll bring
So I warn you, foolish King
Before the next spring
Your precious present to you I’ll bring

Ring bells! Bang the drums
And be prepared for what’s to come
Ring bells! Bang the drums
And be prepared for what’s to come
And be prepared for what’s to come

So I warn you, foolish King
Before the next spring
Your precious present to you I’ll bring
So I warn you, foolish King
Before the next spring
Your precious present to you I’ll bring

Ring bells! Bang the drums
And be prepared for what’s to come
Ring bells! Bang the drums
And be prepared for what’s to come
And be prepared for what’s to come

This is the story of a dog
Who can see through the fog
Behind this scary look
There’s a nice dog who reads books
We know it’s part of the game
To have power and fame
But what we really claim
is to clear our good, good names

Woof Woof Woof Woof Woof
Woof Woof Woof Woof Woof
Woof Woof Woof Woof Woof
Woof Woof Woof Woof Woof

It’s not nice to live down here
with dead souls talking in your ear
We want to live out there
and breathe some fresh air.
We wish to feel the wind
on our pale faces
We wish to see the sun
and visit different places

Woof Woof Woof Woof Woof

It’s not nice to live down here

We want to live out there
and breathe some fresh air.

Go and knock on
The gates of Evil
Go and knock on
The gates of Freedom
And be prepared
For the unknown
Because you are now
On your own

Now it’s the time,
Now it’s the season
Fight for your Freedom
Or die for that reason
Your journey starts here
Nothing to fear
Your journey starts here
Nothing to fear
There’s a healing power
In the darkest hour.

Go hero! Tell your story.
Go hero! Go for glory
Go hero! Tell your story.
Go hero! Go for glory

No matter what they say
Believe in yourself
There’s always a way out
You are stronger than you think you are

You are stronger
You are stronger
You are stronger
You are stronger than you think you are

You are stronger
You are stronger
You are stronger
You are stronger than you think you are

 

You’ll see light in the darkness
You’ll see joy in the sadness
There’s always a way out
You are stronger than you think you are

You are stronger
You are stronger
You are stronger
You are stronger than you think you are

You are stronger
You are stronger
You are stronger
You are stronger than you think you are
