about

There's a lot ahead for Mob Rules: In 2018 they celebrate the release of their ninth studio album, 2019 their 25th anniversary ... Sounds like outdated, dusty rock- geezers? Far from it! These guys are fresh like never before! “Straight, fastforward and powerful” describes the six Nordics, who sound younger than ever. Klaus Dirks, who was co-founder of Mob Rules in 1994 in Wilhelmshaven, gathered five gifted musicians around himself, who sound perfectly in tune with each other on this new album.

Track Name: Ghost Of A Chance
Leave the past! Leave it behind!
See what remains after the fire
Circle, repeating itself
A story of hope and hidden desire

Bridge

Rise from the ashes and welcome your time
Leave your old shadows behind - behind

Refrain

Ghost of a chance - this may lead to misery
Ghost of a chance - if you stay strong there’s a
Ghost of a chance - salvation lies ahead
Ghost of a chance - your quest will come to an end

Press on till the end of the road
The sun will turn black in divine fire
A misplaced soul never feels home
The thorns in your back, your burden, your mire

Bridge

Solo

Refrain
Track Name: Shores Ahead
Follow the path right behind you
Fear by your side
Running in circles
Nowhere to hide
A hunter’s prey in sight

Monolith anchored in hatred
It’s rolling apart
Lost its foundation
Return to the start
And shelter your cold heart

Refrain

Shores ahead, across the sea
Lived my life beneath the waves
Now I’m running free

All my life felt you behind me
Fear by my side
Living in circles
Nowhere to hide
The table’s turned tonight

A puppet depends on its master
The strings used to tame
Cut down eternal, they’re falling apart
So shelter your cold heart

Refrain

Shores ahead, across the sea
Lived my life beneath the waves
I finally found my way out to be free

Solo

Refrain

Shores ahead, across the sea
Lived my life beneath the waves
Now I’m running free!
Shores ahead, across the sea
Now live my life beneath the stars
I promise that’s the last time we will meet

Now go to hell!
Track Name: Sinister Light
Careful my friend! In the mire awaits your fate
Family’s curse, depths of night, fiery teeth, glowing eyes - hound of the damned

Enforcer of death he will savage your legacy
Crimson dusk, fading light, a sound in the haze, brace yourself for

Refrain

Sinister light
Sinister light
Sinister light
In the moor of your bane where the hound scents its prey

Careful my foe! In the mire revealed your fraud
I’m your curse, deep at night, tracking your guilt like a hound - sealing your fate

What remains? Radiant reason consumed the dark.
But if you doubt, there’s a road to insanity at the dusk of

Track Name: Traveller In Time
Intro

Traveller in time, pilgrim to our decade
Tells of a truth: a story never told
Traveller in time, pilgrim to our decade
Hoax or truth, his journey found an end
Your name, a footprint echo in our time
John Titor's legacy
Traveller in time, pilgrim to our decade
Time flies its way, your journey will remain

See the worlds in eternity, imagine supremacy
Of time and space, in a multiverse of chance
One man of dignity, visitor in history
His mission complete, his gift: a truth we need

Faith no more in democracy, forthcoming catastrophe
but man will survive: it’s a multiverse of
Chaos - timelines flow in between, the era he has foreseen
In our remnant world
He‘s survived it all before

Bridge

There is no place where you can hide
will you believe or deny it?

Refrain

Traveller in time, pilgrim to our decade
Tells of a truth: a story never told
Traveller in time, pilgrim to our decade
Hoax or truth, his journey found an end
Traveller in time, pilgrim to our decade
Time flies its way, your journey will remain

Is it all just conspiracy, illogical theory
A fiction of man, this multiverse of chance?
What do you want to see? The fabric of reality just a threadbare lie
Or did he came through time and space?

Bridge

Refrain

Traveller in time, pilgrim to our decade
Tells of a truth: a story never told

Hoax or truth, his journey found an end
Traveller in time, pilgrim to our decade
Time to choose your way, your journey beyond the grave
Track Name: Children's Crusade
“The sea divides by your command”
An angel’s vow of faith
Poorman’s road to Holy Land

Crusaders failed with violence
But we will succeed
We’re heading to Jerusalem!

Bridge

Leave your home and climb the mountains high
And reach the other side:
A children’s march to
Free The Holy Land by innocence

Refrain

He calls to faith, we follow
To The Promised Land,
In destitution
And with cursed confidence
Scattered and freezing
Or drowned in the sea
We are young pilgrims of hope
Children’s crusade.

No sea divides by our command
Survivors in shame
Abandoned in a foreign land

Ten thousand children on the move
As brave, as blind we sought
The angel’s road to agony

Bridge

Refrain

Solo

Refrain

False god desired faith, we followed
To The Promised Land,
Our desolation.
Now blind, no confidence
Scattered and frozen
Or drowned in the sea
We were the pilgrims of hope
Children’s crusade
Track Name: War Of Currents
Intro

Once again, a time appeared
Of science in change, (a) new century
Two men out, they saw it clear
A story worth, worth to hear:

Fighting for the future, (as) generators rose
Genius inventors, electric power source

Edison, he was known across the land
At Menlo Park, forged his universal plan
Proud and apt, visions formed in Tesla’s head:
Improve the state, less power shed

Fighting for the future, ambition spurred them on
In this “War Of Currents”, light for everyone

Rivals, two systems would prevail
Contending, the masters of their time
Direct current, poor long range delivery
Alternating, high voltage cause of death?

Refrain
Will you find the key? The source of modern mankind. Will you find the key?

Greed and slander, the battle rages on
Death row, “they should have used an axe”
While investors, sought the millions from their way
Who is the man, who’ll make a change for all?

Refrain

Will you find the key? The source of modern mankind
Will you find the key? A new age will remain
Will you find the key? Tame this power
Electricity

A new world
A new world
A new world

Solo

In the aftermath, a city glows in AC light
By the power, of Niagara Falls
War has found an end, left the two forlorn behind
While the world progressed through these rivals of their time

Refrain

Outro

War Of Currents
Mistreated saviour, forgotten hero
World in motion
The source of modern mankind
A new age will remain
Track Name: The Explorer
Won’t you come closer now to hear my words
Our ship seems lost on the open sea
We need to find our Promised Land unknown
Please try to hide your fear and agony

Bridge

No clouds today
The stars will lead the way

Refrain

Just follow the light
Follow the light
The stars scatter fright
Our guide, our might

A secret passage for discovery?
The sky’s the only choice, our confidence
Assist to navigate through foreign seas
Return one day with fame and opulence

Bridge

Refrain

Bridge

No clouds tonight
The stars by our side

Refrain

Just follow the light
Follow the light
The stars shine so bright
Our guide, our might
Track Name: Revenant Of The Sea
I can feel my time has come
The ocean be my grave
Reaching for the other side
But left between these worlds

My deepest fear and agony
I’m dead, somehow alive.
Like all that die in sunken land
One day we must rise up

Refrain

Would you please remember me
Since I never will return
Won’t you please recall my name:
Revenant of the Sea

The Northern Sea, my purgatory
Four generations long
My descendants I’ll have to meet
To lay down in their beds

If you can feel or see my ghost
Deep grief captures your soul
Don’t touch me please nor fear my mien
Release me from my pain

Refrain

Solo

As you believe, I become freer
Salt footprints on your floor
Will tell you that I be still there
Till I return no more

Refrain
Track Name: Way Back Home
We have travelled so far just to find a new way
We have searched for a destiny outside this realm
Led by a soothing temptation infusing our souls
We return the same, but somehow reborn

Refrain

Turn the tide! Blaze the trail and be free
Forge the right destiny: our way back home
Fight night and day to redeem
‘Cause tonight we will meet, on our way back home

Is the sun the same when it reignites after dawn?
Turning infinitely round, or endlessly reborn?
It is this light that has led us through anger and pain
We have prevailed and returned as different men

Refrain

Solo

Refrain
Track Name: My Sobriety Mind (For Those Who Left) feat. Ulli Perhonen
No stars tonight
Longing for the light to ease my mind
Left here on my own
Searching for a friend to stay by my side

I raise my glass
Trying to forget our time runs out
When the curtain called and your story became
A memory locked in my heart

Refrain

Did you hear the calling of the wolf
Lay to rest my sobriety mind
Feel the consolation of the moon
Lay to rest my sobriety mind

An endless trail
Never thought it would come to an end
Never came to rest
Suddenly you waved your final goodbye

I’ll always remember
Trying to recall our time runs out
You will always keep your part in my play
Until my curtain calls

Solo
