After debuting the epic, Kai Hansen-penned "Skyfall," Helloween are back with a lyric video for "Fear of the Fallen," the second track off their historic reunion album that finds classic singer Michael Kiske and the co-founding guitarist/vocalist Hansen back within the ranks of power metal's originators.

"Fear of the Fallen" is one of four songs on Helloween authored solely by singer Andi Deris (he also has a co-write with Sascha Gerstner on another) and offers fans the very first taste of his songwriting style with both Kiske and Hansen in the mix.

This is trademark Helloween — a forceful five-and-a-half-minute corker that demands the listener think about some of life's more cerebral topics and their own direction in life. Unlike "Skyfall," which was released as an abbreviated version of the 12-minute studio track, the vocal tradeoff between Deris and Kiske is far more pronounced, offering room for shade and character and the union of Helloween's two most prominent singers on some spectacular harmonies.

"I had so much fun not only writing a song for my voice but also for one of the greatest singers out there. I always have an extremely broad smile on my face when I hear Michi singing my melodies," said Deris.

Kiske added, "The whole process, including the spirit, was just ideal. If I had the feeling that one of the parts would not be really fitting, I asked Andi if he would sing it and vice versa. There was no competition whatsoever – what counted was what is best for the respective song. I am thankful to be (again) a part of this crazy family. I love them all."

Helloween, "Fear of the Fallen" Lyrics

Decide and stand your ground, my friend
Refuse and your fall goes hand in hand
Decide, decide, decide

False saints and believers
Foes and deceivers
Have you now chosen a side?
(Decide)
Time for recanting
We're ready and standing
Cowards can run, cannot hide
(Decide)

Here come The Fear Of The Fallen
We rise when you're calling
A light in the night
We are the flame in the fire
The voice in the choir
We're always nearby

Is this the road you're taking?
Is this the life you're chasing?
(Decide)
Is this your own heart beating?
Is this you who is feeling?
(Decide)
(Decide)

Here come The Fear Of The Fallen
We rise when you're calling
A light in the night
We are the flame in the fire
The voice in a choir
We're always nearby

Is this the road you're taking?
Is this the life you're chasing?
(Decide)
(Decide)

Decide and stand your ground, my friend
The world will sure change in the end
Decide (Decide)
Listen, decide (Decide)
Decide (Decide)
Listen, decide (Decide)

Listen (listen, listen) to your heart
Listen (listen, listen) to your heart
Listen (listen, listen)

Here come The Fear Of The Fallen
We rise when you're calling
A light in the night
We are the flame in the fire
The voice in a choir
We're always nearby

(Decide)
(Decide)
(Decide)
