A Thousand Lies: A New Dark Age Lyrics

2. A Thousand Lies: A New Dark Age (4:12)
In a time when darkness was king and man was free
And the commoner pledged himself unto liberty
The baron of flesh and decadence carried us on
To be shackled in freedom until the infamous dawn

Living in vice and lechery, power divine
Yet mute in anger, awaiting a reverent sign
Where sinners reform, wisdom and wrath may reign
A sentient realm where honor and greed are the same

Holy in effigy, wicked in prophecy
Arise the darkness, famine and misery
Halo asunder, blessings are cast aside
For an eternal grasp on our immortal pride

Holy one
A vision in dark as night surrounds him
Sanctuary
Dominate and killing blindly
Pestilence
Famine and attrition calling
Reverence
The seventh seal breaks

Our hearts are full of anguish
And our spirits cold and gray
But the end of graven pestilence
Will see the light of day
With a caustic inquisition
And the burning tides of war
We will crucify the infidels
To be free forever more

A thousand lies constructed this elite society
With the promise of a Golden Age and a free humanity
But the virtue and the valor of this barren prophecy
Will succumb to mass hysteria and our fateful destiny
