Helloween - Victim Of Fate Lyrics




I was born in the rotten part of the town
The biggest trap I had seen
Wherever you'll go and wherever you'll get to
Evil is all around

My mother's a bitch my father's a killer
Gettin' paid for murder
Fightin' and strugglin' the whole day
The only way to survive

[Bridge:]

Wanted from law but they'll never catch me
I'd much rather die in this bloody war

[Chorus:]

Fly high touch the sky
Never know the reason why it ends
Victim of fate!

I had to kill people to save my own life
I don't wanna go to hell
I started at the bottom
I'm headin' for the top

I'll never return I'll never go back
To that goddamn part of the town
Headhunters won't get me 'cause I'm not stupid
But this ain't the life I dreamt of

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

What now lonely man who's standing
In the shadows of the streets
You're left alone with no helpin' hand beside you
You hide from the daylight living in darkness
You got no friends you can trust nobody
Except for yourself
The only shade that's beside you
Is the shade of Lucifer
Laughing with a satanic smile
And his friend Death sharpens his sickle
You don't wanna die, do you? But you will
You will burn in hell!

[Chorus]

Fly high, touch the sky, you will die!

Helloween Victim Of Fate Comments
  1. Liw

    I was born in the rotten part of town
    The biggest trap I'd seen
    Wherever you go and wherever you get to
    Evil is all around

    My mother's a bitch, my father's a killer
    Getting paid for murder
    Fighting and struggling the whole day
    The only way to survive

    Wanted from law
    But they'll never catch me
    I'd much rather die in this bloody war


    Fly high, touch the sky
    Never know the reason why it ends
    Victim of fate
    Fly high, touch the sky
    Never know the reason why it ends
    Victim of fate

    I had to kill people to save my own life
    I don't wanna go to Hell
    I started at the bottom
    I'm heading for the top

    I'll never return, I'll never go back
    To that goddamn part of town
    Headhunters won't get me, cause I'm not stupid
    But this ain't the life I dreamt of

    Wanted from law
    But they'll never catch me
    I'd much rather die in this bloody war

    Wanted from law
    But they'll never catch me
    I'd much rather die in this bloody war

    Fly high, touch the sky
    Never know the reason why it ends
    Victim of fate
    Fly high, touch the sky
    Never know the reason why it ends
    Victim of fate

    What now, lonely man who's standing
    In the shadows of the streets
    You are left alone with no helping hand beside you
    You hide from the daylight
    Living in darkness, you got no friends
    You can trust nobody except for yourself

    The only shade that's beside you
    Is the shade of Lucifer
    Laughing with a Satanic smile
    And his friend Death sharpens his sickle
    You don't wanna die, do you?
    But you will, you will burn in Hell

    Fly high, touch the sky
    Never know the reason why it ends
    Victim of fate
    Fly high, touch the sky
    Never know the reason why it ends
    Victim of fate

    Fly high, touch the sky
    You will die

    Fly high touch the sky
    Never know the reason why it ends
    Victim of fate

    What now lonely man who's standig
    In the shadow of the streets
    You're left alone with no helpin' hand beside you
    You hide from the daylight livin in darkness
    You got no friends you can trust nobody
    Except for yourself
    The only shade that's beside you
    Is the shade of Lucifer
    Laughing with a satanic smile
    And his friend death sharpens his sickle
    You don't wanna die do you? But you will
    You will burn in hell

    Fly high touch the sky
    Never know the reason why it ends
    Victim of fate

    Fly high, touch the sky, you will die!

  13. Márcio Fonseca

    Minha Musica favorita!!!

  14. Imar Santos

    Helloween tinha que continuar com Kiske nos vocais em 8 músicas e Hansen nos vocais em umas 2, 3..

  15. Jiri Mocek

    Kai hansen is best!!!!!!

  16. ThrashAngel Beyale

    FLYYYYY HIGH!

  18. Abreham

    best halloween song ever! holy shit that scream at around 3:50 is LEGENDARY

  19. César Alves

    Rock in Rio brazil welcome home good band lol.

  20. Funbia_dude

    5:04 That is heavy metal in all its pure energy!!!

  21. Vucskó Gábor

    The intro always reminded me of Judas Priest's Breaking the Law played faster, I don't say it's a rip-off, but it reminds me to it. Still one of the best metal songs I've ever heard, and I'm a fan of this band's early period. I own an original Walls of Jericho's extended version CD and the both Keeper albums aswell. Great music.

    redliner

    rocking it brother !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    New wave of British Heavy Metal

    Reminds me of phantom of the opera. The guitar and drums. excellent song.

  22. ThePunkRockReject - Band

    I looked up German thrash metal for a joke but this is good wtf

  23. Javier Caro

    kaaaaai hanseeeeeeen

  24. Jaime Salvador Alvarez Suarez

    Leyendario, épico, brutal

  25. Monica martinez michel

    Lo mas chingon y vayanse a la verga

  26. Savage 17

    At least Kai said "My mother's a bitch" instead of "My mother's a beach" like Kiske did.

  27. Rodolfo pacheco contreras

    top songs of heavy metal

  28. nicolas pineda

    hey! this is not in the Walls of Jericho. Actually it's in the EP 'Helloween'

  29. Mariusz Golczynski

    The best metal song!

  30. Andrés Rovatti

    In HEEEEEEEEEEEEL DAAMN

  31. Wut Wat

    1:17 - 1:21 Drake took this part of the lyrics and made a shitty song 😋

  32. Jeffrey Locoshon

    666k views!!!! HeavyyYY Meeetaaal!! lml

  33. Mariusz Golczynski

    Great song!

  34. nikos kantar

    Too shame they didn't include it to the reunion tour. M. Kiske was the singer of "victim of fate" at the 1998 remix in "Dr. Stein" single, he should know the song, but Hansen MUST song this masterpiece in lives. Maybe in the next tour.

  35. metal up yer ass

    Great. Its styled like Maiden's Phantom of the Opera 🤘🏻🤘🏻

  36. inguz Java

    Germany speed metal!!!!

  37. shant hagopian

    I loved everything about this album except the vocals, never liked Kai's vocals.

  38. Raul Suarez

    2:20 reminds me of Judas Priest's The Sentinel

    Wut Wat

    And the main riff is basically "Breaking the law" but faster

  39. Darsono Kezman Bin

    Kojet... kojet....

  40. Dale Nason

    fucking classic metal

  41. Davide Pongiluppi

    Maestri della musica

  42. Zoombynation

    Just saying... What a fucking untamed killer this song is. Must be one of their very best ever. Why don't they play it live today? Sounds like a golden era speed / thrash revolution act inventing trailblazer power metal with guts and madness... Which it - of course - pretty much is. :D

  43. Andrew Jagers

    Michael Kiske is the best frontman Helloween ever had, i know this version isn't him but im saying that helloween is so much better with Michael Kiske, im glad they did this song with Michael Kiske on Keeper of the seven keys part 1

  44. Jeff Rogers

    I came here via game song pop. I remember this album. Saw them play a "fest" in Milwaukee in I think summer of 87. Lots of bands there that made thrash history but not in the big 4 or big 10 category. A number of groups that faded into oblivion too. Nuclear Assault, Death Angel, Death also. I had to leave before top 2 to 5 bands hit stage as my ride just happened to pull up as I was puking my guts out right outside the front door. Death Angel members and atleast half of Nuclear Assault receive 5 stars for approachability and treatment of fans. Got my Hang the Pope shirt directly from Danny Likler. I had fun but if I had a time machine I wouldve gone to a different show about 30 minutes away with some folks I met from Madison...they supplied the over heated piss beer that was the nail in my coffin. Still think odd how my ride showed up 3+ hours early just as I was "giving up my ghost " and painting the trash can multi colors. Tough show too as skin heads were destroying long hairs 10:1. I think I survived as my hair was shorter, blondish, and blue eyes. My good friend was part Mexican american and I think he got nailed. One ambulance pulled up after another all day. Eventually I grew in a different direction musically and it probably saved my mind and spirit but I still worked on body damage but not in a mosh circle.

  45. thenaturegurl

    Isn't a groups 1st usually their best: no exception here

  46. Bozhan Boyadzhiev

    always get goosebumps on 3:50 :)

  47. Juancho Pelota

    Temon!!!!!!

  48. George Parra

    es el tema que mas me gusta de estos alemanes.
    !!!!!!!!! HELLOWEEEEEEEENNN ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

  49. Rafael Martinez

    This song is for Hansen.

  55. Hasmizee Hasran

    this was when talented people roam the earth... nowadays, music is a monotonous sound made by machines...

  56. perfecto lorenzo

    Súper temazo

  57. Oggy Fink

    Wow, still good after all these years. A true classic.

  58. Toker delgado

    Song starts at 2:15

  59. Toker delgado

    What now lonly man who's standig
    In the shadow of the streets
    You're left alone with no helpin' hand beside you
    You hide from the daylight livin in darkness
    You got no friends you can trust nobody
    Except for yourself
    The only shade that's beside you
    Is the shade of Lucifer
    Laughing with a satanic smile
    And his friend death sharpens his sickle
    You don't wanna die do you? But you will
    You will burn in hell

  60. ghastlybeamofill

    Metal at it's best .. listening to true metal is always as if being reacquainted with an old friend..

  61. keeperofthereign

    ...his friend death sharpens his sickle...

  62. Edward Hernandez

    Excelente ,son unos Amos del metal

  63. Maria Toda

    I'm 15, but this band is my favourite! 🎃

    minotauruskt

    Maria Toda keep it up kid,I was like you 20 years ago...

    Bier

    Heavy Metal is the law 💪🏻

  64. Odalis Perea

    The best original version, sorry Kiske. lml

    everything me

    Version with kiske is better because he have better voice moron

  65. Bloody

    Ok here's a bit of curious info i found. Piet Sielck(Iron Savior) was still on the band when this album was being recorded, some of the songs here have his guitars. Unfortunately he left the band just like Ralf(who used to be the Vocalist, but left when they decided to go pro, It is the main reason why Kai had to take his place as a vocalist), he wasn't confident in his skills, or rather wasn't ready to deal with their ever increasing fanbase. Sad really, Helloween would've been even more epic with him and Kiske, and later Deris

  66. Mariusz Golczynski

    To se nevrati! Takich utworów juz nie ma.

  67. Kakha Khmelidze

    Just listen to bass guitar, it's so unrivaled here, it's so great, so amazingly stunning... Listen a bass guitar at the end.

  68. Kakha Khmelidze

    Composed at beyond a human limits. Insane one.

  69. I'm Your Subscriber

    I dunno why. But, Kai almost sounds like Paul Di'anno here (especially on the mid). And later, on Keepers, Kiske stylistcally sounds like Bruce Dickinson. Damn, that's why Iron Maiden and Helloween are one of my favorite bands!

    5ar

    I'm Your Subscriber They have many simmilarities:

    -3 Singers
    -16 albums
    - Some songs are long af
    - Experimental albums
    - Their 80s stuff is the best
    - First Helloween mascot was inspired by Maiden's Eddie
    - They have songs about wars
    - They have ALMOST the same production in their earlier work

  70. rmcduarte

    On the CD release they join the two discs! I know this because I have the vynil and the CD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. rmcduarte

    This song is not on walls of jericho LP on vynil! it's on the helloween first EP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Victim Of Fate

    Victim Of Fade

    I was born in the rotten part of the town
    The biggest trap I had seen
    Wherever you'll go and wherever you'll get to
    Evil is around
    My mother's a bitch my father's a killer
    Gettin' paid for a murder
    Fightin' and strugglin' the whole day
    The only way to survive
    Wanted from law but they'll never catch me
    I'd much rather die in this bloody war

    Chorus:
    Fly high touch the sky
    Never know the reason why it ends
    Victim of fate

    I had to kill people to save my own life
    I don't wanna go to hell
    I started at the bottom
    I'm heading for the top
    I'll never return I'll never go back
    To the Goddamn part of the town
    Headhunters won't get me 'cause I'm not stupid
    But this ain't the life I dreamt of
    Wanted from law but they'll never catch me
    I'd much rather die in this bloody war

    Chorus

    What now lonly man who's standig
    In the shadow of the streets

    Chorus

    Fly high, touch the sky, you will die!

    Vitima do Destino

    Vitima do destino

    Eu nasci na parte podre da cidade
    A maior armadilha que eu já havia visto
    Aonde quer que você vá e aonde quer que você chegue
    O mal está por perto
    Minha mãe é uma puta, meu pai é um assassino
    Sendo pago por um assassinato
    Lutando e batalhando o dia inteiro
    O único jeito de sobreviver
    Procurado pela lei mas eles nunca vão me pegar
    Eu preferiria morrer nesta guerra sangrenta

    Refrão:
    Voe alto, toque o céu
    Nunca sabe-se o motivo pelo qual isso termina
    Vítima do destino

    Eu tive que matar pessoas para salvar minha própria vida
    Eu não quero ir para o inferno
    Eu comecei lá em baixo
    Estou indo para o topo
    Eu nunca retornarei, eu nunca voltarei
    Para a maldita parte da cidade
    Caçadores não irão me pegar porque eu não sou estúpido
    Mas essa não é a vida com a qual eu sonhei
    Procurado pela lei mas eles nunca irão me pegar
    Eu preferiria morrer nesta guerra sangrenta

    Refrão

    E agora, homem solitário que está de pé
    Nas sombras das ruas
    Você foi deixado sozinho sem ninguém ao seu lado
    Você se esconde do dia, vivendo na noite
    Você não tem amigos, você não pode confiar em ninguém
    Exceto em você mesmo
    A única sombra que está ao seu lado
    É a sombra de Lúcifer
    Rindo com um sorriso satanico
    E sua amiga morte afia sua foice
    Você não quer morrer, né? Mas você vai
    Você vai queimar no inferno!

    Refrão

    Voe alto, toque o céu, você irá morrer!

    Gergelics Dániel

    Yes, his grammar sucks.

  90. Dalmo Hernandes

    michael grosskopf just kills on this. great lines

    German Vargas Acosta

    Dalmo Hernandes Michael grosskopf ? MARKUS grosskopf

    Dalmo Hernandes

    whatever, his playing is the same and he'll never read that

    Ross Rodriguez

    es Marcus!!!

  91. Antonio Marin de la mata

    de lo bueno lo mejor

  92. ginnungagap3

    this is one example on how you can play the bass on a rock/metal song without being a shadow of guitars

    kitko33

    Mr Grosskopf is, in many ways, like Paul McCartney - both effectively play 'solo' bass lines, which is extremely rare.
