The Blood of the Ancients Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. So far from Home (1:07)
2. Night of neverending Turmoil (5:49)
The Moonlight shattered across the breaking waves
In the distance the dark clouds swell and grow...As the storm approaches

The rain starts to create a haze of sorrow
Its soft sound breaking the eerie silence before the darkness

As the wind picks up rotten dead leaves
bushing against my face,
dead and frail like this broken shell
they disintegrate into oblivion

This night of never ending turmoil
This storm of distorted time

The hunger for the end
yet the strength to go on
to be one with the storm and all its destructive force
to be one with all that is and was
all that destroys thus created
The blood in our veins that has been passed on since the first dawn
and the dusk that takes our breath away
feeding the blackness in our hearts
3. Chamber of lost Hope (4:13)
Through the withered vines of a rotting forest
the ruins of the old world lay untouched for centuries
still trapped within time

Holding a millennia of decadence and knowledge
Holding the key to unlock the future

Tattered scrolls written in peasants blood
a time where nobility ruled with an iron fist
Glory for the strong
Death for the weak

Through the walls of stone
in a chamber of lost hope
not touched by the light
lies the path to our fate
Our destiny
Our calling
To the blacker future we create
4. Lunar Reflection in Blood (Vampyres of the Old) (3:48)
The carrion circle the rotten corpse
seasons ago before the summer stench
under the winter stars
a lone creature stalks the night
Its reflection dancing against the streams it passes
looking for its next victim
a lunar reflection in its eyes
These cold nights draw out the aristocrats of old
surviving centuries off mortal essence
The writing race of lesser beings walk the day
At dusk the fear strikes and they cower
For when the sun dies he awakens
in the colder months when the nights are longer
this world belongs to Him again
5. The Darkness is the guiding Light (6:37)
Through the flames of the modern world
an honour is still held high
through the corruption of this poisoned earth
a pride that will never die

March to the end knowing we may never win
Watch all that you know crumble
yet still fight on for all you believe in

March to the end knowing we may never win
Watch all that you know burn

and as your comrades fall all around
as all you once knew rots in the ground
you cannot lose sight of the higher purpose that your serve
never forget what this wars about they all get what they deserve

March to the end knowing we may never win
watch all that you know crumble
yet still fight on for all you believe in

as your blood flows over the earth
the seeds you have sown
dying with a purpose
this will not be the end
but a new beginning
this is not about one but all
the darkness is the guiding light
and now we are one
this will not be the end
and now we are one
6. Residing in a Kingdom now Lost (4:43)
I am the sun
and I am the moon
I am the winter chill
on the first day of June
the dark mystery
that lies in the sea
as my heart yearns
to truly be free
as the flames of the old
burns on with passion
till my heart grows cold

I crush the empires and crumble walls of stone
I burn the villages of those below

I am the dark
and I am the cold
the blood of the ancients
that can never be sold
the spirit of our ancestors
the storm that rages on
the fragments of a broken past
forgotten by name

Possessed by times of old
Immortal soul of the cold
Centuries of wisdom at a cost
Residing in a kingdom now lost
7. Servant of an unholy Plague (3:27)
In an empire of mutilated silhouettes
Where shadows tell tales of nocturnal dark enigmas

Who curse the very ground they walk on
who cause the feeble to tremble

A lonesome soul watches from a far
poisoning the light with his gaze
a black templar of unearthly power
a rotten being of foul intentions

He curses the very ground he walks on
He causes the feeble to tremble
He reeks of dead angels tears
He lives with the rats of no fear

The servant of an unholy plague
the bringer of cruel intent
he wanders a path of sorrow
torture to reinvent
he is the bite of this world
thrown aside by the cross
the one who rapes the hymen of earth
who speads the black crust
he laughs at the folly of man
he is part of our dark clan
with spite he loughs
his story will be told
for years to come
he will always return
a fire that forever burns
8. When Dusk breathes its last Breath (4:48)
As the furneral dirge solemnly plays
a grave ravaged by time
with one decaying rose
laying subtly on top of the cracked earth
alone in a cemetery of benevolence
death by ones own hand
gives them this curse

When dusk breathes its last breath
and the eerie dirge fades
a melancholic apparition appears
sitting in sorrow
waiting to pass the other side
forever bound here
longing for that which will never come

and when the dawn bleeds in
fading back to nothingness
till dusk breathes again
the nights so empty
the nights so lonely
haunting in sadness
9. Victory in Sight (6:25)
blood!

Through the turmoil we rise
with our pride burning deep inside
as its rooted in our veins
blood passed on from fathers
to teir sons
Our motherland calls to its children
fight on! fight on!
Our motherland calls to its children
fight on! Fight on!

Through the turmoil we rise
with our pride burning deep inside
as its rooted in our veins
blood passed on from fathers
to their sons
Our motherland calls to its children
fight on! Fight on!
Our motherland calls to its children
fight on! Fight on!

Under one banner victory in sight
win or lose no matter the outcome
We have fought with honour
We have fought with pride
We have fought for our blood
We have fought for what's inside
Our motherland calls to its children... fight on...fight on...
