1. A Day for Redemption Lyrics


Our time is now, to raise our banners
And reclaim all we've lost
Avenge the lives they've taken
No matter what the cost

The last of us remain
With longing for redemption
This is our final chance
To make our last ascension

We will repay
The lives they stole from us
I see a day
A day for redemption

Hear the choir call your name
In the white walls your name engraved
Now it seems I have found my way
To the valley of the kings

Hear the choir call your name
In the white walls your name engraved
Now it seems I have found my way
To the valley of the kings

Our day has come to face this terror
And end the tyranny
Destroy their hold upon us
And set our people free

The last of us remain
With longing for redemption
This is our final chance
To make our last ascension

We will repay
The lives they stole from us
I see a day
A day for redemption

Hear the choir call your name
In the white walls your name engraved
Now it seems I have found my way
To the valley of the kings

Hear the choir call your name
In the white walls your name engraved
Now it seems I have found my way
To the valley... of the... kings!


2. Lost in a Starless Aeon Lyrics


I was trapped in a game that I never played
What is my purpose? What is my destiny?
A game is for fools, there are no rules
I'll cheat this life, you will see soon
That I am not your soul to test
I'll find the edges of this maze
And finally, I'll put to rest
The emptiness that haunts my days

You have made this world below
The shadow of a dream
My shadow is not for sale
Not for sale
So this is my last goodbye
This is goodbye
My last farewell

Drifting through time
Drifting through time and space
I was drifting through time
Laughter used to fill my days
But now only sorrow knows my name

I am lost in a starless aeon

This endless path before me
Searching for the end
An empty void surrounds me
Now I descend
I can't escape this darkness
Into the sun
I fly and though I'm lost
This game I won

You have made this world below
The shadow of a dream
My shadow is not for sale
Not for sale
So this is my last goodbye
This is goodbye
My last farewell

Drifting through time
Drifting through time and space
I was drifting through time
Laughter used to fill my days
But now only sorrow knows my name


3. In Frozen Fields Lyrics



Called to arms
Not our war
But still our destiny
Ripped from our homes

Torn apart
Misery for all
Where no flowers grow
Gunfire will light up the night

We are the living, marching to war
In the fields of the dead

There shall be
With that rich earth
A richer dust concealed

Washed by the rivers
Blessed by the suns
Eternal minds pulse

We are the dead, not long ago
We lived and were loved, and now we lie
In the fields of the dead, when great souls die
The air becomes light

Smoke fills the sky
We feel death's grip upon us
All, too young to die
Our souls are taken from us

When the snowfall is blinding
You try to find your way
Back to the place where you belong
Back to your loved ones

And when the snowfall is blinding
You try to find your way
Back to the place where you belong
Back to your loved ones
But death defies you

Lost in trenches
Trying to find a way out
Breathing gasses
Just trying to survive
So much acid
Death falls like rain

Called to arms
Not our war
But still, we die for this cause

Ripped from our homes
Torn apart
Senseless, our part in this war
We are the dead

Smoke fills the sky
We feel death's grip upon us
All, too young to die
Our souls are taken from us

When the snowfall is blinding
You try to find your way
Back to the place where you belong
Back to your loved ones

And when the snowfall is blinding
You try to find your way
Back to the place where you belong
Back to your loved ones
But death defies you


4. March to War Lyrics


Cast your sails and light the torches
Through the darkest seas, we ride
Shores of blood will mark our passage
Crushing all against the tide

From the ocean, bring the fire
And set ablaze those who stand before us
Burn the sands and light the pyre
With lungs and wrath, we sing our chorus

March to war, blood for all
March to war, blood for all
Let them taste the burning fire
March to war, blood for all

Burn our place in history
As we mark our names in the great
Halls, we join our fathers
As we breach these bloody walls

From the ship, we tread the land
Laying siege, we tell our story
Spraying blood across the sand
Now as one, we march to glory

No mournful cry to hear
No painful burden to bear
The wind will guide us there
Now we sleep in the arms of the sea

No mournful cry to hear
No painful burden to bear
The wind will guide us there
Now we sleep in the arms of the sea

Take back the kingdom
And once more, we'll be free

Never forget who we are
Never forget what we have lost
Memories frozen in the past
But burning hearts can melt the frost
No more shall we fear the end
Waiting for us soon shall be
Those we have lost beneath the waves
Rising ashes from the sea

March to war, blood for all
March to war, blood for all
Let them taste the burning fire
March to war, blood for all

No mournful cry to hear
No painful burden to bear
The wind will guide us there
Now we sleep in the arms of the sea

No mournful cry to hear
No painful burden to bear
The wind will guide us there
Now we sleep in the arms of the sea


5. Rebirth Lyrics


The winds from the frozen north
Brings shivers down my bones
And my soul
Souls are torn apart

Towards the unavoidable death we are traveling
And in the end no one will be freed
Only ash and dust shall remain
The man in black brings torture and pain

Why should the mortal spirit be proud?
He passes from life to his rest in the grave
The hand of the king that the blade has born
Is hidden and lost in the haze

Led into the darkness
No flame to light our path
Our fate is written
And we can't change the past
Rise into the light
And walk the earth again
Now sits the mask of God
Upon the face of men

Arise
From your burning coffin that is made from human skin
Arise
Arise
From your golden chamber that was buried six feet down
Arise
And suffer in flesh

Led into the darkness
No flame to light our path
Our fate is written
And we can't change the past
Rise into the light
And walk the earth again
Now sits the mask of God
Upon the face of men

Arise
From your burning coffin that is made from human skin
Arise
Arise
From your golden chamber that was buried six feet down
Arise
And suffer in flesh

7. Master of the Dead Lyrics


Gloria!

Death surrounds me
The dead have come to take their prize
A fabled prophecy
Now we come to realize

Death is marching
Fast upon our weakened walls
Our live departing
Cries upon deaf ears befall

For an aeon
We have waited
Almighty demon
End this hatred

Crack the heavens
Cleanse the Earth
Bring destruction
For our rebirth

Oh, master
Why won't you hear our cries?
Oh, master
Awake from death and rise
Oh, master
We need you one more time
Oh, master
Game over, time to die

Scrolls of ages
Conceal the answers to our plight
This war enrages
Alone we cannot stand and fight

I watch as the city dies
Searching for the only cure
You turn your back and blind my eyes
And still we need you evermore

For an aeon
We have waited
Almighty demon
End this hatred

Crack the heavens
Cleanse the Earth
Bring destruction
For our rebirth

Oh, master
Why won't you hear our cries?
Oh, master
Awake from death and rise
Oh, master
We need you one more time
Oh, master
Game over, time to die

This charm bestowed upon me
To raise you from your sleep
Reciting from this scripture
To summon from the deep

But now my powers fail me
Was I ever the one?
The heavens now betray me
My god, what have I done?

Oh, master
Why won't you hear our cries?
Oh, master
Awake from death and rise
Oh, master
We need you one more time
Oh, master
Game over, time to die

Gloria!


8. The Everlong Night Lyrics


My waking eyes deceive me
Is this the end?
As I greet death before me
My only friend
My dying thoughts consume me
My real sadness
This sickness now entombs me
Can't stop this, this madness

My final seconds fade away
Day turns to night, night turns to day
I can't control chaos within
Please free me of this sin

My aching bones betray me
This is the end
But I can't turn to face you
Unwanted friend
My living pain devours me
But still I wake
My twisted soul is not yours
Not yours to take

My final minutes fade away
Day turns to night, night turns to day
I can't control chaos within
Please free me of this sin

My final seconds fade away
Day turns to night, night turns to day
My madness takes control within
Please free me of this sin

What is the color of the end?
I see it now as I descend
I walk alone in this eternal night
What is the meaning of this life?

What is the color of the end?
I see it now as I descend
I walk alone in this eternal night
What is the meaning of this life?

My final hopes forsake me
There is no end
For death's not here to take me
I can't pretend
That I am soon to join them
Fathers of old
For I am long to rot here
Life to behold

My final seconds fade away
Day turns to night, night turns to day
I can't control chaos within
Please free me of this sin

What is the color of the end?
I see it now as I descend
I walk alone in this eternal night
What is the meaning of this life?

What is the color of the end?
I see it now as I descend
I walk alone in this eternal night
What is the meaning of this life?


9. At the Shores of Silver Sand Lyrics


Oh, rejoice, mortal man with the eve of your prime
Your steps shall be traced by the shards of time
For your life shall depart with the joy it had given
And a judgement of justice awaits you in Heaven

Above the heresy the faithful stars align
You leave a legacy to stand the test of time
A mark upon the lives of everyone you know
The winds of time can't hide your footprints in the snow

Not for the riches, not for the stories
That we are fighting, but for the glory
More fair than roses, the flowers of fire
Just a trace of silver sand marks where the water meets land

You leave this world alone but soon you will see
A life to call your own forever free
Your mortal past defines you, but in the end
Eternal life enshrines you, immortal friend

Lost in the dirt, nothing can hurt me
I have built my shields so strong that life cannot touch me
Lost in the dirt, nothing can hurt me
I have built my shields so strong that life cannot touch me

Oh, rejoice, mortal man with the eve of your prime
Your steps shall be traced by the shards of time
For your life shall depart with the joy it had given
And a judgement of justice awaits you in Heaven

You leave this world alone but soon you will see
A life to call your own forever free
Your mortal past defines you, but in the end
Eternal life enshrines you, immortal friend

Lost in the dirt, nothing can hurt me
I have built my shields so strong that life cannot touch me
Lost in the dirt, nothing can hurt me
I have built my shields so strong that life cannot touch me

Lost in the dirt, lost in the dirt
Life cannot touch me
Lost in the dirt, lost in the dirt
I have built my shields so strong
Lost in the dirt


10. My Home, My Grave Lyrics


Forced into exile, lost is thy name
Banished to live every day just the same
Cast to the edges, left here all alone
All but forgotten, here I remain
Left here to suffer, no life to reclaim
How does it feel to see your old free world just burn?

Serving my sentence, never to stray
Reaping my judgement, I curse at the day
All that I am, an empty shell of a man

I have lost my way
Here, here I stay
Time, time can't break
Free, free these chains

Rain washing away
The fading light of a new day
Drowning I stand, clutching the skies
Drenched in the sound of my cries

All that I have
I'm destined to live out my days
Nowhere but here, forever yearn
But I will never return

Waking again, long is the night
Watching forever, I'm blind to the light
Rivers of sadness fall from my eyes

I have lost my way
Here, here I stay
Time, time can't break
Free, free these chains

I swear with all my anger
I repent what I have done
I swear with all my hatred
And I will reclaim what I am

Rain washing away
The fading light of a new day
Drowning I stand, clutching the skies
Drenched in the sound of my cries

All that I have
I'm destined to live out my days
Nowhere but here, forever yearn
But I will never return
