To Kill a King Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. To Kill a King (10:03)
Church bells did chime the day
My father died
A king of truthful ways
Poisoned by wine
One of this court stole his life

Upon the parapets
His ghost came to me
Revealing cause of death
His brother's scheme
Usurp the throne of the king

Uncle, now stepfather
Who defiles my mother's bed
Reckoned by ghostly words
I seek my father's revenge

I shall lead them to think
That I am out of my mind
In truth I plot to bring
Doom to this kingdom of lies

A course that cost me love
My bride-to-be died
Thinking I was insane
She took her own life

The acting troupe hath come
I scripted a play
Exposed the evil deed
To this court's dismay

The king's assassins came
But did not survive
I'll have my uncle's head
Vengeance shall be mine

The queen doth see the truth
Poisoned by dreams
All see I'm not the fool
As my sword sings
I have come to kill a king
2. Conqueror (3:38)
Across all of Persia did come a conqueror
The one who cut the Gordian Knot
A demigod and king, the great Alexander
His strategy the world was taught

To reach beyond the mortal chains that bind us all
Was the beginning of his doom
So learn thee well the lessons from the ones who fall
As not to repeat history's truth
3. Never Again (6:21)
Is it forgotten the fear we had before
Of the atomic sword
Did we forget the lurking nevermore
Behind the silo doors

Have we embraced the fall of man
Even though we said never again
We are deep inside the lion's den
Even though we said never again

Is it forgotten the innocents that died
So many wasted lives
Did we forget that each and every night
Can bring the flash of light

Have we embraced the fall of man
Even though we said never again
We are deep inside the lion's den
Even though we said never again

Change
Or hate will see us in our graves
The future of the human race
Is in our hands for us to save
And the dreams are still inside my head
Even though we said never again
4. The Arena (6:30)
The sands are stained with crimson rain
Blood flows inside the coliseum
Flesh bought and sold, the way of Rome
A slave must fight to gain his freedom

Fight or die
Fight or die
Fight or die
Fight or die

These human games bring gold and fame
The heads will roll in the arena
Just one desire, to win or die
A gladiator's way to freedom

Fight or die
Fight or die
Fight or die
Fight or die

Sacrifice to the gods
Amusement of the mob
No matter win or fall
Still death comes to us all

Blood on the sand by Rome's command
The Emperor can grant your freedom
So fight thee well, send them to hell
You are the gods of the arena

Fight or die
Fight or die
Fight or die
Fight or die
5. In the Wake (6:40)
Why listen to fools who don't have a clue
About life in these new times
Hearts so filled with hate, they think it's their fate
Under god to kill us all

Ideology of hate
Barring us from glorious days
We are living in the wake
Fantasy of gods and fate

There's so much we've lost, too great the cost
Stop the pain, it's time to change
Governments collide and innocents die
For beliefs in mythology

Ideology of hate
Barring us from glorious days
We are living in the wake
Fantasy of gods and fate

Come into the light
No more sacrifice
Chasing fairy tales
Salvation for sale

In the wake of religion

Ideology of hate
Barring us from glorious days
We are living in the wake
Fantasy of gods and fate

Embrace these new tides
Where knowledge of life
Proves once and for all
We're not ruled by god

In the wake of religion
6. The Talisman (4:57)
Covered by darkness of life
Searching for the holy light
Under the eye of the gods

This is where we face our fear
The blessed path is unclear
Many a brave soul will fall

Wizards of black sorcery
Hid away this magik key
Inside the bowels of the earth

Guarded by demonic knights
Talisman of astral light
Even the righteous can burn

Engraved with magikal runes
Talisman of burning truth
Power that maddens a fool

With sword and shield I shall fight
For the talisman of light
Even if it means my doom
7. The Other Side (6:19)
Beyond the veils negativity
Is a place that I've seen
Filled with dark haunting dreams

Voices cry out to me blasphemy
Reaching out from the flames
Am I blessed or insane

There's a void inside my mind
Like a black hole pausing time
Spirits come through

Creatures from the other side
That my thoughts have brought to life
Visions of doom

Torment or true creativity
There's no end to the game
You can drown in the pain

Is this my manifest destiny
Or a hand from beyond
Whom in death shall I haunt

There's a void inside my mind
Like a black hole pausing time
Spirits come through

Creatures from the other side
That my thoughts have brought to life
Visions or truth

There's a void inside my mind
Like a black hole pausing time
Spirits come through

Creatures from the other side
That my thoughts have brought to life
Visions or doom
8. Castle of the Devil (5:04)
A dungeon of despair
To punish flesh and soul
You scream but no one cares
Castillo del Diablo

Within these walls the devil relishes pain
A science of torture so cruel
Demonic song of bloody cries so insane
Inside the castle of man's doom

Devices made of iron
Eyes melted with hot coals
Sanctioned religious fire
Castillo del Diablo
9. Ghost Warriors (5:26)
It was the world Roman plan
To conquer and expand
All of Germania's clans
Led by a great man would
Defiantly stand

Arminius was his name
Teutoburg Forrest the place
The ghost warriors oh so brave
Laid Romans to waste for three
Nights and three days

The ghost warriors of the night
Invisible to the eye
Three Roman Legions would die
Defeated in fight, Varus takes his own life

The empire dealt quite a blow
A message to all of Rome
We shall fight for our homes
No slave to a throne neither
Body nor soul
10. Blood Island (6:36)
On this isle of misery and pain
The natives sacrifice in vain
Deathly screams from Doctor Lorca's lab
Within the jungle that's gone mad

Human experiments so extreme
This beast of blood a mad doctor's dream
The search for Lorca's miracle drug
Mad science on the island of blood

Blood and gore, this beast was once a man
Mutated in the doctor's lab
Now he strikes, the monster full of rage
Nothing can kill, not even flames

Human experiments so extreme
This beast of blood a mad doctor's dream
The search for Lorca's miracle drug
Mad science on the island of blood

Blood turned green inside his veins
A mutant of genetic change

Demon eyes and misty nights
The jungle's fauna comes to life
Deadly vines across the isle
Guarding the evil here that hides

Mad doctor transplanting
Human heads
Onto the beast who defies death
Island hell, a scientist deranged
Nothing can save
You in this place

Human experiments so extreme
This beast of blood a
Mad doctor's dream
The search for Lorca's
Miracle drug
Mad science on the
Island of blood
