The Demon King Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. The Assassination (5:34)
The king is dead!

Son of god, the ruler of the realm of earth
He lies dead and lifeless on the throne
Son of god, the ruler of the mortal men
Bloodshed, assassinated by his own

The son of god has fallen
We stand alone

Darkness falls, a ruler is no more
Temples burn, a god is now destined to fail?
Son of god, in his kingdom lies an empty throne
Buried, a kingdom now left without hope

The son of god has fallen
We stand alone
And in this land of fire
We are burning

And there he lies, with a knife through his heart
Once a warrior now lies dead and cold

Slaughtered!
Maimed!

Turn back the time. For it is running out
All that we’ve lost is now turning to memories

The pyre
Burns to ashes!

Is this the end of the world?
As it turns and turns around
Will we die, or will we survive?
The coming of the storm
2. Facing the Faceless (6:32)
War, an enemy is upon us,
Into this battle we must go
Forward into the unknown
Humankind alone

His ashes are scattered far
The memories still live on
We will remember. We will not forget. We will forever live on

Come forth my brothers. This is a call to arms
Come forth united, we’re facing the faceless

Death, a premonition foretold
This heart must not despair
Undaunted, we will stand strong
Prevailing against all odds

His ashes are scattered far
The memories still live on
We will remember. We will not forget, we will forever live on

Come forth my brothers. This is a call to arms
Come forth united, we’re facing the faceless

We gather our forces
Our strongest warriors
We call upon our allies
Strengthen our numbers
An army like a human sea
Not willing to accept defeat
We will fight
Whatever evil comes our way

We took an oath we swore to uphold
Relinquish our spirit and soul
Fight this battle until the end
Till the blood is drawn and the ground turns red

The fire s lit, the gates are locked
The night is here. Be on the watch

I know its there
I feel its presence
I feel the impending doom
I do not know when they will strike
I do not even know if it’s human
We can only wait and be prepared
Be prepared to fight
Be prepared to give humanity a fighting chance
Whatever evil awaits us, we will give it hell
3. The Promise of Never (6:07)
On a darkened day, I did receive
The letter did say, I must return
I asked myself - could this be real
In disbelief, my hands did shiver
She feared the worst -I had to leave
The promise I made, I would return

The promise I made to you
A promise I will keep
Believe me when I tell you
That I will return from war
I would not betray you, I did not deceive
Unless death finds me first

Oh lord above,
Deliver us all from evil (the battle is lost)
Take the darkness away (no more)
This is where i go when all is lost (bow to me)

I had to leave my unborn child
Devoted wife, to serve my king
Called to war -I had to be strong
My heart did break. Her tears did speak
I bid farewell, our hearts entwined
Eternal love, I promised to return

Our last kiss this night
At dawn I bid good bye

Engulfed in guilt.
My heart is weary
Each step I take wears me down
The oath by which I’m bound
This promise will not break me
4. Death, Desolation and Despair (5:49)
Fear! A blackness is upon us
In holy books inscribed
The signs are now becoming clear

Infect! The frail heart of man
Unable to withstand
The sickness that infects us all, from within

Death, desolation and despair

Fear! The epidemic spreads
The rising count of dead
Far and wide a fear it grips the world

Infest! The soul of humankind
You see it in their eyes,
Disease infesting body and soul before they die

The streets are now deserted
The wind it now blows cold
There is no sanctuary
In a kingdom without hope

Will this come to pass
Just like days of old
Or is there some force evil
Lurking in the shadows

I see a man fallen in the street
His skin has begun to corrode
Eyes that speak of pain and sorrow
A darkness infecting his very soul

His pulse starts racing fast
Gasping for air, he chokes
His trembling body shudders
To his dear life he holds

His bloody, trembling hands
He tries to fight the cold
The disease has now run its course
He lies, a mass of flesh and bone

The houses in the street
Their doors are bolted shut
But death still grips them all
There is nowhere to run

The infection is spreading
Rising, the death toll
Humanity is weakening
To a force unknown
5. The Demon King (6:38)
Smoke billows from the mountains
Fear grips the villages
It seems the signs were true
The demon king will rise

Legend and folklore did tell a tale
Of a demon so powerful who could not be slaved
He was under a spell of eternal sleep
Never to be awakened, never to be seen

But now it seems
That the legend is true
He has been awakened
This world is doomed

Barbaric and savage, a beastly form
A merciless demon, unleashing a storm
He roamed the lands annihilating all
He did rule the world till under a spell he did fall

But now it seems
That the legend is true
He has been awakened
This world is doomed

The human rage
Will meet its demise
Once he awakens
There will be no respite from his wrath

Are we doomed to pall?
Is there no way out?
I will fight till the end but
I shall not be your slave
6. Architect of Destruction (5:35)
‎"That which is created, can be destroyed"
the golden rule by which he lives,
a craftsman, a wizard, a creator of things,
he is but one from the world of old

The chosen task at hand

And so he will create that which will destroy,
the weapon with powers unmatched,
a warrior is needed to wield the axe,
to deliver judgment, sentence and execute

Old wise wizard, humanity is at stake,
deliver me a hope, do not betray,
grant us this deed and grateful we'll be,
a war is coming and this is humanity's need

‎"To destroy, to annihilate, to bring to an end,
you must find the weakness of your foe
I will devise a weapon that will slay The Demon King,
the weapon alone won't kill him,
a worthy warrior is needed to wield it, no ordinary man will do"

We will see the dawn this day,
fragments of the world torn
This time we believe he will create,
Architect the Destruction of a God, of a God

GOD!

‎"Heed my word; this power must not fall into the wrong hands."

Into the wrong hands!‎
7. Trail of Devastation (4:26)
A storm is coming, an army of a thousand warriors,
a breed of pure evil unlike no other

Overcome with fear,
I pray to you, Lord,
watch over us, father,
do not let us fall

Brace for attack, retreat is not an option,
fight them 'til death, a merciless execution
A shadow looms of fear and desperation,
the sound of an army marching, the blade is drawn, we go to war

The crushing wave of a mass of demon warriors,
annihilating all that dare to cross their path,
leaving a Trail of death and Devastation,
in their wake, an endless human graveyard

The crushing wave of a mass of demon warriors,
annihilating all that dare to cross their path,
leaving a Trail of death and Devastation,
in their wake, an endless human graveyard

Raised to the sky, his mighty sword,
an unholy form that shadows the sun
The sweetest taste of victory,
the annihilation of man has only just begun

Torture those who survive,
the unholy pain of being skinned alive

Show them true meaning of fear
for I will now rule this world,
pray to your father in Heaven,
all of God's children must die

In their wake, an endless human graveyard
8. Shattered Equilibrium (5:04)
I, watcher from the sky,
surveying all that exists in this universe
I have devised the system of Equilibrium,
perfected symmetry

The structure of existence destroyed,
blurring of the dividing line

I have seen discordance, disharmony,
Equilibrium torn

And then there was disparity, the axis has been shifted
the balance of the world is no longer even
above, from his kingdom in the sky,
he watches

The structure of existence destroyed,
blurring of the dividing line

The unwritten rule in the book of the Gods,
intrude not on the world of men with mortal heart
for their own destiny they will create,
God must remain forever merely a silent observer

The structure of existence destroyed,
blurring of the dividing line

Sleeping demons awaken softly, will he answer their prayers?
In a world where there is no hope, facing death's cold stare,
the balance of the universe must be restored,
a Promise broken but a silent observer no more

Silent no more, rising from his throne,
descending from the heavens

And then there was disparity, the axis has been shifted
the balance of the world is no longer even
above, from his kingdom in the sky,
he watches

The structure of existence destroyed,
blurring of the dividing line

Shattered, destroyed
9. Even Gods Do Fall (4:53)
War on the threshold between where Heaven and Hell lie,
God against The Demon King, 'til the death they will fight,
the fate of the human race rests in the hands of God
or annihilation, at the hands of The Demon King

The deafening sound of the clashing blades, the war was waged,
a clash of powers that made the universe shake
The balance of the universe must be restored,
this time, God must destroy The Demon King

Dreams of despair and darkness will haunt
the man who believes and fears

And we must not ever lose this faith,
his strength, our prayers will make

And we must not ever lose this faith,
his strength, our prayers will make

Battling from heavens, they descend
TO THE GROUND!

The power of evil has grown strong,
Even a God can't withstand

Weak and Fallen,
the final swing of the blade is made, from the heavens to the grave

And so he's met his demise
on the edges of Paradise
Victorious, The Demon King stands tall,
how can you still believe, when Even Gods Do Fall?
Do you still believe your temple is more than just four walls?
Wake up in the night and find that you're alone,
these dreams of evil, they will take control
