Behind the Castle Walls Lyrics

7. Behind the Castle Walls (6:48)
The time was known medieval
When kings and queens did rule the land
But there were two with insane minds
And wickedness at hand
For deep within their castle
They sat and laughed while people died
They never cared for anyone
But others of their kind

For life we plead, real blood
We bleed from the pain
Rising up we knew we must
Now stop these evil ones
To break these chains and
Make our claim for revolution

She was the queen of endless love
And deemed the rich and classy whore
She romanced many in her bed
Amidst the sounds of war
The king, the greedy tyrant spent
All of his time watching poor men die
And no one dared get in his way
Or it would mean their lives

It is from our voice that we now demand
Our freedom from your pain
And we will fight and kill to bring justice
Back to our people once again!
There's no longer independence
And without it we have no lives
So together now we will stand
And march and fight until you die

Kill! Let us stand and kill! Kill!
Behind the castle walls

Our pride was in our freedom
Which death would now reward
As a certain magic filled the hearts
Of our storming battle horde
For we felt as if in heaven
As our tattered armor shined
Yes, the poor were rising from their woes
To save our broken lives

Kill! Let us stand and kill! Kill!
Now we will attack!

Yes, the time had come for vengeance
For angered were us slaves
We had longed to storm the castle walls
And finally end their reign, end their reign...

We rode the path unto the bridge
That brought us to the gates
For our quest for peace had now begun
And death would lead the way, lead the way!

To the king and queen we now call
For you and your people all the same
We've suffered here now long enough
It's time to end our pain!

As we slayed the guards in battle
We knew that it was time
For now beyond the castle walls
Sat the king and queen to die
And we brought our swords together
And our pride we did defend
As we beheaded all the wicked ones
Who'd never reign again
Yes, the chains were finally freed
And there for all the town to see
Were the heads of the king and queen
We've found peace
