lyrics

Long lost fear of a fire-fight genocide
I hail to crusader
Sign of the blade signals all to end of time
I couldn’t crush the predator
Body calls out in its misery
Shape shifting into
A holocaust of infinite disease
Labyrinth opens up – consume

Fourteen angels rising up ahead
Angry visitors sacrificed before they bled
All I’ve seen are memories implanted
To save mankind and rebirth – I must

(Fall) On the sword
(Die) By the sword
(Fall) On the sword
(Die) By the sword

Slave to the warlord – devil-necked poltergeist
Kneel before me challenger
Sword and axe leather strapped unto my steed
Bells cry out the sacrifice
Transylvanian horse trot resolute
Succubae present their bounty
All religions gathered round Satan’s hound
Cerberus’ dominion

Everyone said it was a self righteous suicide
Hung in the gallows is their savior
They all stepped foot in the pit of flies
To save their kind and rebirth – I must

(Fall) On the sword
(Die) By the sword
(Fall) On the sword
(Die) By the sword

Crawling, fleeing, seeker of the golden crown
Menace against the sword
Climbing, cutting, finding the mountain face
There I found the sword

Shepherd, watchman, savior of the ancient race
Soon forgot to the world
Seeing, thinking, sharpened the wistful eye
I thought I saw my doom

Where I lived
All is gone
Winter coming
Sheltered myself

Crowd of wolves – black blood precipitate
Hill legions await
Stampede force of eighty thousand men
Show you no mercy

Silver-clad the gulag superstar
Maiden’s victim refused
Guilty Mother’s child weeps in selfdefense
She says she’s worried

You Will Rise
(Fall) On the sword
(Die) By the sword
(Fall) On the sword
(Die) By the sword
