Megadeus Megadeus Trapped outside the geodome Waiting for the weight to come Seen the fall of Paradigm No more living blind blind Megadeus Gynoid holds controls until our fate Big Fau punch and blast renews the waste Megadeus Not guilty Megadeus God ye not Desert sands outside city Dominus fuse to Big O Laser cannons decimate They can’t hide the real real Cyborg’s feel Little deadly roaches sing achtung Bald-head number back gains memories Monster killer Monster Killed her

Ooh Ah Ooh Ah Wool, tusk Cultivate we must Plant, seed Satisfy our needs Ooh Ah Ooh Ah Raise, grow Live, slow Spirit marred Taught of war Warrior Ooh Ah Warrior Ooh Ah We who live in forest Piledged through darkness Feeding on lifeforce We who fought their wars Blast! They’re coming fast Alas, we will not last Hear their ancient roar Artists of war Conqueror’s sword comes toward us Outposts failed to warn us Gather the women and children Let them not see this sin Congress of Andraeus They ambush as demons Galloping hoofs smash the ground We pray at the holy mound Blast! They’re coming fast Alas, we will not last Hear their ancient roar Artists of war The judge, he lives Inside our nightless dreams He’s hunting, he’s wanting Our heads upon a stake That Bastard! Run faster! Get away from his hunting squad Get away now! Far away now! Run away into the night Your soul, it’s shattered No more weeping for me Abandoned, this land is Too late for our escape That Bastard! Run Faster! Get away from his hunting squad Get away now! Far away now! Run away into the night Warrior Taste this fear Burn your – Flesh and die Ooh Ah Warrior Ooh Ah Warrior “I am your savior To heir I bring terror My fist crushes evil 1,000 years of peace for your people”

Warbird Rlyeh lived a lifetime His ashes in this tomb Cut his wings and bless of them A future without doom Warbird Tell our children stories Of his healing ways in flight Let them know all the people he saved When he fought to rid our plight Warbird Warbird Warbird! I walked away into this womb that’s full of lies My grandpa said to me that I should sacrifice My life for those who need my help when they’re in doubt I said to him god damn it I know what that’s about Yeah! Nobody cares for me my story’s end is found Her confidence in me is dead within the ground I was a modest man who couldn’t live without Someone to torture me and keep my spirits down I didn’t see the light when she gazed upon my face She couldn’t whisper to me things she used to say I gave her everything and lost it all in due She fucked up everything and watched the cauldron brew Yeah! I walked away into this womb that’s full of lies My grandpa said to me that I should sacrifice My life for those who need my help when they’re in doubt I said to him god damn it I know what that’s about Warbird Lord of prophecy in fire we remember you Warbird came upon our homes and led us to the truth

The rising to Golgoth Without a shape I’m all but man A pinnacle has long been reached This modern age is on rewind Severed from the world I knew Cut the chord and my life falls through No more swords and magic for me I’m stuck in reality The monster’s head Cannibalized Though I was warned I had to try No sorcery No bone-clubs No ape inside us Can raise me up I wasn’t picked to unite the world Thrust through time I’m the one who learns Fill my hands with a stone-man’s club Let it down, it’s time to run I see beast with a billion back’s I see beast with a billion back’s I see beast with a billion back’s I see beast with a billion back’s If I should die as the first of man Find the place where it all began A monkey skull next to Adam’s tree Take the apple, it’s time to believe Disqus Like Dislike

Flash my shield so the beast can see me I don’t fear lightning Swing Old Might against the armored flesh He evades to prolong the fight, fight! Where he lives I will ride 40 days I see his wings depart Reddened glaze upon his ancient hide Approach at night and polish my axe to sharp Go! I don’t fear this Eight Headed Fire Dragon Soul is caught, I’m sent upon this quest Have my penance upon the dragon’s death Raging force controlled within each head I won’t stop until he’s dead, dead! Serpents heads are slain upon the floor My heavy back was scraped and bled about Toxic fear absorbs the battle roar Molten flames explode with sonic sound Go! I don’t fear this Eight Headed Fire Dragon I don’t Fear this Fire Dragon Killed my wife, my child and flock Now there’s a bounty upon his cock Anger, hatred, hell, envy Odin’s pledge, I’ll murder thee! A million degrees of scorching fire With each deed I’ll rise ever higher Crawl inside of your broken chest Your emerald heart will set me free Eight Headed Fire Dragon Denizens rise in broken light A warrior rises to challenge his flight Cast a rope around his neck Feet ascend the earth is left 20,000 feet above the clouds A raging battle for the deadly crown No more hope for the warriors quest His soul is trapped in the dragons crest Eight Headed Fire Dragon

“Thor! No fire could burn my armor. No tooth tear my hide. Eight heads of terror in hell could not stop my blessed axe from splitting your guardian’s emerald heart. "I laid claim to countries over the heads of your armies. They fell plagued and black to my fist. Give me now thy throne of gold in Valhalla ascent on Chariots of fire for all to see. “I won’t rest until I’ve found my home. All you’re power can’t keep me from it.” He descended the Earth and began the perilous march to oblivion I stayed alive Until it fell Above the crag in the dead man’s well I scarred my face because I couldn’t stand to see it all. No more remorse for you inside these closing walls. War inside of these prison gates Learn in time of all the things we hate I will learn We will not Fall into Oblivion Look into the eye of maker’s heart Teach to you the way of warriors art In our time We’ve made mistakes Were turned around We’ve lost the faith Paid the price Played with fate No ones left Oblivion On my quest Mountain bound Powers honed Oblivion On my quest into the frozen waste There is no one who can see the sun No one who can slow this arctic pace All is lost inside Oblivion

Rising, absorbing, they harvest the galaxy Behind great walls of ancient technology Left us the future, survived at greater risk Rethinking faith now, we worshipped an obelisk Dawn! Purged Life ‘O cosmic one Enter The Atmos – phere Go mammoth one Ripping our souls out we join with the mothership Resistance surging, forget that we wanted this They birth new gods, replacing species Out of our bodies, creating divinity Dawn! Purged Life ‘O cosmic one Enter The Atmos – phere A billion eyes looking of races collective I now despise this pale white Earth “Becoming plasma, at high speed, they enter the living sun. Flying towards it, absorbed in its shell. Corona exposes, the cycle has begun.” Lasting testament – to a dead breed Religion honed – we have joined the seed “Surrounding aurora encases this planet Erasing all those who were left No dirt, no plants, no lifeforms existent. Silver encases their bodies. Hair, sex, and race devoid. Internal workings revealed. Mechanical perfection – materialized The blue sun releases two points of light.” Reorganizing tissue with divine precision By the visiting gods, consciousness is given Evolved, honed, of helium and fission Messiah, incarnate, are grown Passing the eons on a globe near a distant star Two tall, pale beings stand with extended arms Wiser and stronger with knowledge of all species They are the new Gods of The Galaxy

People just can’t realize Man was born to suffer Freed by those whom they despise Beasts arise from slumber Titan Rising Loose from canyons they walk the earth Bred from those who speak in tongues Sickened by plague some disperse The Black smog fills their lungs Little do they know what fear really is Soon their pain is revealed Titans march to stomp out life No more lies concealed from them Titan Rising War! Cronus! Colossi of the molten Arrive now from astral birth Soon they live amongst man The Only Gods they understand Titan Rising Colossus above the molt Drops down and is rid of life Zeus strikes down with mighty bolt Seals away their triumph Titan Rising

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
