The Eyes of Power Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Renewal in the East (3:09)
Instrumental
2. Dura Europos (4:25)
Under the eastern blue sky
Siege tower stands still, so high
Leans on sacked town's huge bricked wall
No one's down there, no one at all

Only the howling of the wind
May be heard outside
It's just an overwhelming pain
You could feel inside

See the endless line of slaves in chains
Disappearing from the sight of the scenery
Dura europos in ruins remains
Heaven, cloudless skies above
Echoes with tragedy

Dead bodies lay all around
Some left trapped under the ground
What lies behind such cruelness?
How could one be so merciless?

Only the howling of the wind
May be heard outside
It's just an overwhelming pain
You could feel inside

See the endless line of slaves in chains
Disappearing from the sight of the scenery
Dura europos in ruins remains
Heaven, cloudless skies above
Echoes with tragedy
3. Purpleborn (4:50)
Dragons made of silk surround his chariot
Shining armours, chanting
Sending minds aloft
Though times are so hard
Now it's time to greet with joy

Hail the master of the world
Glorious and bold
Victor by land and by sea
Get down on your knee
Bring light and flowers for he has come
Salute him 'cause he's the one

Purpleborn - noble, lorn
World of thine - earthly or divine?

Here he comes wearing a jewelled diadem
Few will meet him or kiss his purple robe's hem
He has got the power of life and death, untold

Hail the master of the world
Glorious and bold
Victor by land and by sea
Get down on your knee
Bring light and flowers for he has come
Salute him 'cause he's the one

Purpleborn - noble, lorn
World of thine - earthly or divine?

Hail the master of the world
Slowly growing old
Victor by land and by sea
Will he ever be?
Bring light and flowers for he has come
Salute him 'cause he is the one

Purpleborn - noble, lorn
World of thine - earthly not divine
4. Mystical Majesty (3:54)
We're the chosen one endowed with majesty
We're the wisest
Worship, serve the gods with zeal

Now as the crown's been placed on our head
The fire's gonna burn again

Ever again kindled sacred fire
The flame that it brings
Founded again to perpetuate our name
The name of the king of kings

We're the strongest one
We bravely lead to war
Hunting lions as did our father before

Behold the greatest eye of power
We shall come and dominate you all

Ever again kindled sacred fire
The flame that it brings
Founded again to perpetuate our name
The name of the king of kings

Ever again kindled sacred fire
The flame that it brings
Founded again to perpetuate our name
The name of the king of kings
5. One Fatal Enterprise (5:06)
Here is the dust and the heat
Finally trapped where we are
Soon there'll be nothing to eat, for us
Really it got that far

Where the ten thousand once marched
We have to march today
No bridges here that would overarch tigris
That stands in our way

Who could've guessed you'd be gone
No battle would be won
Who could've guessed
We'd be on our knees at once at last

Climate so dry
Where we have been trapped, deployed
We might all die 'cause you believed
You're the one who'd destroy
Natio molestissima

Bad omens, ominous signs
Followed our enterprise
Chasing those glorious times of old
You did not compromise

Prideful and greedy for more
You took that fatal turn
Ships that we needed before
You ordered to be burned

Who could've guessed...

Mountains so high
No escape yet no return
We might all die 'cause you ordered
All the ships to be burned

Who could've guessed...

Climate so dry
Where we have been trapped and deployed
We might all die
'cause you believed you destroyed
Natio molestissima
6. The Underground Temples of Mithras (5:16)
Instrumental
7. Oathbreaker (4:32)
Twelve thousand riders
Headed east
Fought for the kingdom
Fought the beast
Slaves, not their master
Feared no disaster

I was the winner
Risked my head
'cause he called a loser
Me instead
Mean slave, warmonger
Hero no longer

Oathbreaker - evilmaker
Madness filled your mind
Oathbreaker - evilmaker
You've been left behind

So what was I to do?
When in this unstable world
King did not heed
God's covenant... no more

He filled the tombs
With noblemen
But that will not
Happen once again
Now I'm the master
Fear no disaster

On and on, still I wondered
On and on... but I had to decide

Oathbreaker - evilmaker
Fallen from god's grace
Oathbreaker - evilmaker
Gone without a trace

So what was I to do?
When in this unstable world
King did not heed
God's covenant... no more

Oathbreaker - evilmaker
Banished from this world
Oathbreaker - evilmaker
As had been foretold

So what was I to do?
When in this unstable world
King did not heed
God's covenant... no more
8. Roma Aeterna (4:37)
Instrumental
9. Destroyers of the World (6:00)
Now all round the world
The end times seem to unfold
The swords have been drawn and
Mornings bring no dawn

Two decades of war
Like never seen before
Is that what we see
Our final misery?

There's no glory in this world
That lasts for good
In the end it always fades away
A few understood

Guided by pride
Vengeance or greed
We all would die
Die as the destroyers of the world

We shall never know
The day we'll die
We will have to face it
Eye to eye

As far as the sea
Destruction and debris
They put us to the sword
Mock all that we adored

So hungry for gold and
Slaves that could be sold
That all we can save
Lies far beyond the grave

There's no treasure in this world
That may bring peace
In the end it may pull us all down
We'd fall on our knees

Guided by pride
Vengeance or greed
We all would die
Die as the destroyers of the world

We shall never know
The day we will die
We shall live forevermore
Don't you cry
