They are known for their 1980s rock anthem "Rock You Like a Hurricane" and many singles, such as "No One… more »

In the heat of the violence
The night's exploding everywhere
When hate pulls the trigger
The devil comes to take his share

In the garden of Eden
The time is running out so fast
Into heart of the demon
With no escape our die is cast
 
In the city of angels
Death is just a moment away
In the city of angels
Your future won't see the light of the day
 
Beware of the alien nation
Beware of the truth that they seek
They pray for eternal salvation
They pray for your soul to keep
 
On the eve of destruction
A reign of terror rules the street
When the heads start rolling
The devil comes to let it bleed
 
In the city of angels
Death is just a moment away
In the city of angels
Your future won't see the light of the day
 
Walk on past the alien nation
Walk on to the end of your reach
No fear of the alien nation
No fear of the hatred they preach
 
Don't run, there's no place to hide 
Today or tomorrow it will get you
Don't move, the knife is right at your throat
And whatever you do, there's no way out

When the shroud comes down on this place
To bury us all alive
We'll know the time has come, to face the heat 

Beware of the alien nation
Beware of the truth that they seek
They pray for eternal salvation
They pray for your soul to keep

Walk on past the alien nation
Walk on to the end of your reach
They pray for eternal damnation
They pray for your soul to keep
