Eternal Mercenary Lyrics

6. Eternal Mercenary (5:25)
A Roman Soldier , a persian King
I`ve come to conquer , I`ve come to bring
A curse by god to roam this land
with an endless task to conquer man

Fires burning , children crying
Oh why my lord there is so much dying

They`ve called me evil , they`ve called my death
They`ve called me Genghis Khan
No one`s at rest , no one`s at rest
from the eternal Mercenary

March to battle I must go
To kill and take another should
And as I cross the river Rhine
I notice that good men have died

They tell the stories of years gone by
of men in battle , when children cried
cursed by god to roam this land
with an endless task to conquer man

Years and centuries have gone by
But still I must battle and never die
For I am diven and cannot escape
this pain my fury , this pain my fate

Fires burning , children crying
Oh why my lord is there so much dying

They`ve called me evil , they`ve called me death
They`ve called me Genghis Khan
No one `s at rest , no one`s at rest
From the eternal Mercenary
