Anthems of Conquest Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Tinfeer
1. Last Flight of the Valkyries (4:50)
Coming from the heavens, they are riding on the thunderdragon
Coming from the heavens, they are charging through the sky

Look to the skies
The blazing fury of the Valkyrie rides
Torn from this world
Their last resort, the final effort for all

Odin sends his choosers of the slain
To take the ones that were so brave
Valhalla waits, it calls to them
To wield their weapons once again

Last flight of the Valkyrie
To dispose of the bane of man
Forever

Coming from the heavens, they are riding on the thunderdragon
Coming from the heavens, they are charging through the sky

The moon is full, the wind blows cold,
It happens as it was foretold
This barren land, they now roam
To take the warriors back home

Now they are gone
Mankind's fall is sure to come
None stand tall
In this, our final hour

The final battle is close at hand
Dark shadows fall over the land
The Valkyrie rides out one last time
And her armour shines with light divine

Last flight of the Valkyrie
To dispose of the bane of man
Forever
2. Gates of Time (3:46)
Hypnotized by the light of the stars
Mastery of the long lost art
Entwine the threads of fate
Moving towards the abyssal gate

Calling the gods to serve this end
Bonds are strong, laws are met
Forever in dust
Forever in death

Ours are the gates of time
The die is cast, this day is mine
Never again to be the slave
From this day I will reign

Torrents swelled and maelstroms bled
Naive desires born and bred
Colliding lusts refined
Opening the gates of time

As it lives, so it dies
Forget the starstruck paradise
Heaven's inferno
From destruction one must create

Ours are the gates of time
The die is cast, this day is mine
Never again to be the slave
From this day I will reign
3. Fate of the Promised Land - The Desert (1:17)
4. Fate of the Promised Land - Mark of the Scimitar (5:28)
Everywhere the sound of steel on the battlefield
(as they seek solemn redemption)
They think they will conquer our souls, but they will yield
(all in the name of a god)
Blood will be shed for the sake of their belief
(they will never reach the promised land)
They are too foolish to see it will end in grief
(as our swords cut their flesh)

Allah ackhbar!

Once again the greed of mankind will be their downfall
(the prophet is strong)
My army will overcome and destroy them all
(no crusader taints his deeds)
Triumph we will, victory is ours
(meeting on the battlefield)
Here we will prevail and raise our towers
(knowledge and wisdom are grand)

Allah ackhbar!

Don't try to resist, your attempts are in vain
(knights will fall down)
Prepare to be crushed by the heathens you disdain
(for a powerful foe)
You claim to be blessed by your lord
(your lord had left you)
But death awaits you all by the blade of my sword
(as the scimitar cuts through you)

Allah ackhbar!

Everywhere the scent of the blood that has flown
(death now reigns here)
In the burning sand at my feet lies a man unknown
(no name on his grave)
Devastation among those who remain
(all lies in ruin)
I laugh as I hear them scream in pain
(screaming tortured souls)
5. Towards New Shores (1:30)
6. Buccaneers (4:17)
Shores of the Caribbean
will never be safe again
The Dutch, French and English unite
Ready to kill for gain

Hear the sound of the crashing sea
Fear the smouldering canons
Buccaneers are proud to lead attacks
on the Spanish galleons

Buccaneers, buccaneers
The ocean we ride
Buccaneers, buccaneers
The sea is our home
Look at our vessel
Our reason to live
On the verge of losing all
Above the waves she stands tall

Jolly Rogers with deathlike faces

Grimacing in the wind
They hit and run without a trace
Tear the flag with the wicked grin
Camaraderie a rare trait
Cursing one another for extra bait
Black markings, a sign of death
Spitting on the grave of the last one left

We are the ones that mastered the oceans
We are the ones that rule the seas
Never surrender and always fight on
We are the ones that charge at dawn
7. Anthem of Conquest (3:34)
8. I Am Spartacus (5:10)
Hear the call of freedom
It mocks our so-called rulers
Hear them shout and watch them run
A new era has now begun
We will obey them no more!

Bound in chains for so long
Now it's time to turn the tide
And free ourselves at once!

Against the empire we stand
An army of slaves will charge
A chance for redemption
Freedom is our right

Honour and glory
Gladiatorial quest
With flames in our hearts
Marching to our death

I am Spartacus

We laugh at their rage, defy them once again
And make them run for their lives
They try to run but it’s too late
Now victory is ours to take
Their reign has come to an end

Like a massive wave we stood
Against an army, grand and vast
This final consolation

The dust knows our names
The sun sings our praise
Forever we will be
A monument to freedom

I am Spartacus
I am Spartacus
9. The Battle of Camlann (4:25)
Soar through the mist and
breathe in the dank fumes
Battle is brewing
near the place called Camlann

Come draw your swords men
Victory is at hand
My son must not succeed
or this land will fall

Near the place called Camlann
our destinies shall meet
Grieving father and spiteful son
will seal each other's fate
Britannia's future hangs by a thread
while avarice here dwell
Arthur and Mordred, the blood of kings
on this ground lay dead

The anger rages on and on
While hardened men heed the call
No preacher shall redeem them now
For soon they all will fall

Dust upon the lofty ground
Marks their final passage
Ravens feast on those left behind
Bringing this grim message

Near the place called Camlann
our destinies shall meet
Grieving father and spiteful son
will seal each other's fate
Britannia's future hangs by a thread
while avarice here dwell
Arthur and Mordred, the blood of kings
on this ground lay dead
10. Avalon (2:25)
11. Boadicea (4:52)
Boadicea, warrior queen
Too proud for the world
Your prowess unseen
No Roman tyrant
Could break your will
Bent on destruction
You went for the kill

Boadicea
My precious queen
Great were your actions
The world would redeem
Against the oppressor
You stood your ground
In light of enslavement
Your name stands tall

You will not break me
You stand no chance, so flee
My followers gather my army
With fury I ride
Until the dawn comes

I am the untamed
I am the one

They will destroy you
And raze this land
The green hills of Scotland
Just burning sand
Cities in ruin
Children as slaves
This army of dead ghosts
that rides as the waves

The hills of Scotland
They are my home
My people, my loved ones
This place of our own
But you the invader
Claim to have rights
On our home and our crown

Boadicea
My precious queen
Great were your actions
The world would redeem
Against the oppressor
You stood your ground
In light of enslavement
Your name stands tall

You will not break me
You stand no chance, so flee
My followers gather my army
With fury I ride
Until the dawn comes
I am the untamed
I am the one

Once we were warriors
Now we are naught
But there is honour
In what you have brought
Hearts never broken
Spirits never die
Boadicea
On hallowed ground you lie

Boadicea
My precious queen
Great were your actions
The world would redeem
Against the oppressor
You stood your ground
In light of enslavement
Your name stands tall

This place of our own

But you the invader
Claim to have rights
On our home and our crown
12. Onwards to Asgaard (4:38)
Forward that day - with speed they fared,
From Asgaard came they - to Egil's home;
The goats with horns - bedecked he guarded;
Then they sped to the hall - where Hymir dwelt

Morningrise, day of judgement
With sword and shield in hand
Onward to the battle plain
We face our enemies
Come forth the troops and all
We will fight for our native land
The heathen tribes live on
Our bones buried in the sand

Fury of steel, breaking of limbs
Shattering the centre
The marching dead, glorious splendour
Victory or damnation
Conquering all, conquering none
All decided on a whim
Forging bonds, mortal wounds
Fighting for my kin

There is but one chance for redemption
Meet the maker in his golden hall

Onwards to Asgaard
A warrior's tale
Onwards to Asgaard!
A hero's death

CHARGE!

Onwards to Asgaard!
A warrior's tale
Onwards to Asgaard!
A hero's death
13. Remembrance (1:09)
