Dawn of Glory Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Son of Earth (3:17)
Hard and furious
With death defying grace
I ride the universe
And rage through time and space
My chariot rips the air
Like an arrow in flight
Thunder roar and lightning glare
As the skyline is set alight

I ride the winds of glory
My heroic deeds are untold
I am the son of Mother Earth
In my chariot of gold

Thunderbolts I scatter
As I plunge into my fate
Bucks black in front of me
Breathing brimstone, fire and hate
But now I am forsaken
Tell me how could this be
Lightning walks with thunder
And thunder walks with me

I ride the winds of glory
My heroic deeds are untold
I am the son of Mother Earth
In my chariot of gold

I am the thunderer
I penetrate the northern night
I rule the seasons four
With overwhelming might

I will kill!!!
2. Dawn of Glory (4:16)
Morning light beams
Reflections in sword and shield
For the ones who are born of leather
And the ones who are forged in steel

Marching under blood red skies
All of us too young to die
In our wake scavengers fly
Drawn by our battle cry

Fallen heroes on the field
Killed in battle orgy
All reborn in the sky
Dawn of glory

Arrows thirty pierce my side
Nailed into the ground
Now let death be my bride
For Valhalla I am bound
Valkyries descend from the clouds
Severing our earthly ties
Carry us to kingdom come
Left behind, my body lies

Fallen heroes on the field
Killed in battle orgy
All reborn in the sky
Dawn of glory

I am searching through
the highland of my past
The riddle of steel
will be mine at last

Ride the winds of thunder
Through the worlds of nine
Borne through crystal air
Onto the plain of the divine
Today we lost our battle
Yet we won a greater victory
Region of the gods
Dawn of glory

Fallen heroes on the field
Killed in battle orgy
All reborn in the sky
Dawn of glory

Fallen heroes on the field
Killed in battle orgy
All reborn in the sky
Dawn of glory
3. The Oracle (4:41)
Deep into the mountains of the north
I ride on this pilgrimage of mine
No, I've never travelled here before
At the journey's end I hope to find

Old man with eyes of blind
Gaze into your star pond
Stars on stars and one am I
Trajecting open sky

Yeah, yeah, oracle of old
I want my fate foretold

Leaves of autumn on my path
The nights are growing cold
I keep the wolves away with fire
Not far till I reach eternal snow

Somewhere here there should be
A secret marble bridge
Across the deepest rift
Onto a narrow ridge

Yeah, yeah, oracle of old
I want my fate foretold

Finally I've found this cave
And there the hermit sits on rugs
I pay the price he asks in gold
Now gaze into your star pond, man

"Your soul is damned, you soon shall die"
No, this is wrong, must be a lie
Oracle of false, you'll pay for this
Now taste the sweetness of my blades's kiss

The star pond now erupts
As the oracle lies dead
The old man was surely right
And so the shock wave cracks my head

Yeah, Yeah, oracle of old
Now dead be we, as we foretold
4. Last Incarnation (5:05)
The catch will end the chase
Show the way out of this maze
The catch will end this phase
Lead to be a better place
The catch will end the chase
To fall from grace
Repeating words I praise
Upon your picture I gaze

Rid me of this guilt
Help tear down these walls that I've built
Once again, change my ways
Gone from evil day

The catch will end the chase
To fall from grace
Repeating words I praise
Upon your picture I gaze

Rid me of this guilt
Help tear down these walls that I've built
Once again, change my ways
Gone from evil day

In my last reincarnation
Form the ancient to reformation
Same of soul, body left behind
New appearance of another kind
New form, new shape, new size
Out of this ashes I will rise
Memories, they will always last
In the records, karma of my past

The catch will end the chase
Show the way out of this maze
The catch will end this phase
Lead to be a better place
The catch will end the chase
To fall from grace
Repeating words I praise
Upon your picture I gaze

Rid me of this guilt
Help tear down these walls that I've built
Once again, change my ways
Gone from evil day

Here I am to suffer once again
Leading a life, never ending strain
Gone from Sodom, now I'm coming through
And Gomorrah, been there too
End it all, no way won't do
Way of life, will have to renew
Only way to stay clean
Right rack, strike the olden mean
5. Raging Into Battle (5:18)
Few in number but strong in heart
We may not live to see the night
But have not fear, into battle we ride
The moon is gone, the day now dawns
We crush the stillness and charge through the woods
The day of the battle is born

Horses scream, arrows fly
Crows circle the sky
We clash with our enemies onto the field
We're not afraid to die
Fallen men litter the ground
More fall, onto the mounds
So if we fall, we will be reborn
We can never die

We drive on our horses with madness and fury
Defending our land with sword and bow
The heat of the battle, melting the snow
Now we fall, line by line
But we charge onward, a bloody tide
There is no fear, into battle we ride

Horses scream, arrows fly
Crows circle the sky
We clash with our enemies onto the field
We're not afraid to die
Fallen men litter the ground
More fall, onto the mounds
So if we fall, we will be reborn
We can never die

Horses scream, arrows fly
Crows circle the sky
We clash with our enemies onto the field
We're not afraid to die
Fallen men litter the ground
More fall, onto the mounds
So if we fall, we will be reborn
We can never die!
6. Scattered (3:20)
My bones are broken
But my heart with hatred filled
I swear now to avenge
All those who where killed

Scattered!

I spread my kinsmen's' ashes
In the morning breeze
I'll follow on your track
You're the prey and I'm the beast

Scattered!
7. I Am Vengeance (4:07)
I'm the one to be there
I'm the one who doesn't care
I'm what you've feared all the time
I am the end
I'm the eyes in the night
i hide from the burning light
I'm what you've feared all the time
I am vengeance

I rage for revenge...

I explose in your face
I avenge my murdered race
I release my anger now
I am the end
I've ridden across the forzen plains
And the eternal sand wastes
Wherever you journey, so do I
For I am vengeance

I rage for revenge...

I fly like the eagle
I run like a wolf
I hide out of sight
Until it is time
When the stars grow pale
And the sun slowly rises
I will not fall
I leave my disguise

I rage and run beserk
Your bodies fall to earth

I rage for revenge

In blood and ashes I stand
In your ravaged camp
My sacred promises now fulfilled
I became your end
And as the day grows warm
I mount my steed and leave
The taste of victory in my mouth
I am vengeance...

I rage for revenge!
8. Cross My Heart (3:12)
Ignorance, intolerance
The fuel to your hate
A lie repeated is believed
And minds so weak will follow
Sickening mass ecstasy
Minds, empty and hollow
You've built yourself a throne too high
Cross my heart and you will die

A darkended epoch of the past
Its hate recycled and reporn
It grows in strength, it's growing fast
And now it must be torn
The thought of you, a taste so sour
Your mind is fucked by lies
Your head is swimming form the power
Cross my heart and you will die

Cross my heart, you will die
Cross my heart, you will die
Cross my heart, you will die
Cross my heart, you will die

Cross my heart, you will die
Cross my heart, you will die
Cross my heart, you will die
Cross my heart, you will die

Mind-fucked beyond recognition
Blinded by hate, a blurred vision

Hybris man who aren't on high
Self-proclaimed divinity
Hubris man, you live a lie
Cross my heart and you will die
Hybris man who aren't on high
You'll end in dark infinity
Hybris man, you live a lie
Cross my heart and you will die

Cross my heart, you will die
Cross my heart, you will die
Cross my heart, you will die
Cross my heart, you will die
