Forward into Battle Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level FTN
1. Forward into Battle (1:17)
(Instrumental)
2. The Final Conquest (4:17)
Once were a people who stood so tall
The world lay before you, you're now prepared to fall
Dividing and ruling as you did please
The powerful nations were down on their knees

No one could stop the almighty attacks
No one could summon the strength to fight back
The country in ruins had fallen before
The empire knocked down then opened death's door

Victory surrounds you
As you strive to win
They have the last laugh
Murder and madness, destruction begins

Winning was easy until you forgot
That fighting was easy, but dying was not
Losing more men than your armies supplied
Dangerous enemy made sure that you died

But it wasn't you who had taken the toll
It was your troops who were forced to enroll
Scurging back to live low like a worm
Your empire is beaten, your ego is burnt

Victory surrounds you
As you strive to win
They have the last laugh
Murder and madness, destruction begins

On the defensive, as they were before
They've taken the empires within their on laws
Marching to murder, and starving you out
From inside the palace they all hear you shout

You've taken control over my country and men
You've taken it once now, but never again
Not whilst I'm living and learning to hide
The act of revenge will be my suicide

Victory surrounds you
As you strive to win
They have the last laugh
Murder and madness, destruction begins

Victory surrounds you
As you strive to win
They have the last laugh
Murder and madness, destruction begins
3. Ultimate Sacrifice (4:40)
I sit writing out my last goodbye
The people all glamour around
In my own cell I am condemned to die
For the twenty-one people I drowned

Twenty-one lives became twenty-one deaths
In one night of madness from me
Twenty-one bodies, not even a breath
They all died in agony

Make me a martyr, I've earned the right
Leading my cult in the dead of the night
Don't you want to hear my famous last words?
"See all you angels in Hell"
Ultimate sacrifice!

They gave me their lives,
They gave me their souls
To do with them as I did please
They gave me the right to reverse all their roles
They prayed to me down on their knees

I had to test out the ultimate power
Would they obey my command?
All twenty-one died in just less than an hour
The power of god in my hands

Make me a martyr, I've earned the right
Leading my cult in the dead of the night
Don't you want to hear my famous last words?
"See all you angels in Hell"
Ultimate sacrifice!

Make me a martyr, I've earned the right
Leading my cult in the dead of the night
Don't you want to hear my famous last words?
"See all you angels in Hell"
Ultimate sacrifice!

So here I am now in a cell on death row
My followers mourning for me
My spirit is strong and will live on and on
I'll go down in all history

My famous last words, as the trapdoor is sprung
Is cut short by my final breath
Take me down, Satan, to live in your Hell
May your spirit command my own death

Make me a martyr, I've earned the right
Leading my cult in the dead of the night
Don't you want to hear my famous last words?
"See all you angels in Hell"
Ultimate sacrifice!

See all you angels in Hell!!!
4. Ordeal by Fire (4:38)
Ordeal by fire, death takes a grip when there's no one around
Forward in fear, waiting alone for the final command
Faced by a trial that takes me away to the limits of pain
I fear the task that I am to face, won't let me come back again

Flame that burns in the sky
Knows I prepare to die
Know that I face them alone
One of the many heroes

Flame that burns in the sky
Knows I prepare to die
Know that I face them alone
One of the many heroes

Sent by the king, alone to return for the flame that gives him the power
Guarding the door of death, I will return within the tewnty-four hours
Stealing the flame from the keeper who guards with all its evil reserve
Run for my life, return through the hell, if only I have the nerve

On through the forest of light
On through the caves in the night
Until I can reach the domain
And then I return with the flame

On through the forest of light
On through the caves in the night
Until I can reach the domain
And then I return with the flame

Slaying the beast who's guarding my prize, that it tries to deny
Running back to the kingdom of men, a warrior fearless and high
Facing a welcome fit for a king, I come back in proud victory
Power in my hands, I now realize that the true king is me

Ruling the land by the sword
Power in my every word
The flame of the gods is held high
Immortal, now I'll never die

Ruling the land by the sword
Power in my every word
The flame of the gods is held high
Immortal, now I'll never die
5. False Prophet (2:37)
May god have mercy on your souls
Your endless list of dreadful sins
Doomed to burn in the fires of hell
You shall be damned for all eternity
But at least there's still a solution
If you make a large contribution

There is a false prophet amongst us
There is a false prophet in our midsts

Empty your pockets, sacrifice you every possession
And your vices will be forgiven for the moment
I'll lift the burden from your shoulders
When you come to confession
Insurance for a heavy donation

There is a false prophet amongst us
There is a false prophet in our midsts

May god have mercy on your souls
Your endless list of dreadful sins
Doomed to burn in the fires of hell
You shall be damned for all eternity
But at least there's still a solution
If you make a large contribution

There is a false prophet amongst us
There is a false prophet in our midsts
6. Wall of Steel (4:24)
The battle's been raging for nearly a year
The people are starting to live out their fears
The food has ran out ond the water is foul
Tolerance is more than the people can allow

Streets lay in ruins behind the great walls
Bodies are piling so high that they fall
The stench all around is so putrid to smell
The city within is like living in Hell

Wall of Steel
How does it feel to die?
Wall of Steel
Burned to the ground
Wall of Steel
How does it feel to die?
Wall of Steel
Wiped of the Earth... and into the Sky

Finally, terribly, people give in
Can't take the path anymore
Small band of soldiers, The rebels in sin
In the night open the door

In pour the armies and massacre reigns
Death is the only response
As carnage and looting and killing begins
Death rules as Death was there once

Wall of Steel
How does it feel to die?
Wall of Steel
Burned to the ground
Wall of Steel
How does it feel to die?
Wall of Steel
Wiped of the Earth... and into the Sky

Show no remorse to the few that survive
Taking their minds be it dead or alive
Plundering armies beat the Wall of Steel
Cowering citizens lose on their deal

The city they live in once impregnable
Had turned itself red overnight
But the city of steel it got burned to the ground
The people had now lost their fight

Wall of Steel
How does it feel to die?
Wall of Steel
Burned to the ground
Wall of Steel
How does it feel to die?
Wall of Steel
Wiped of the Earth... and into the Sky

Wall of Steel
Wall of Steel
Wall of Steel
Burned to the ground
7. Nosferatu (4:29)
Created by the force of the Devil's blood
A man to whom time matters not
The evils of the world in human form
Devised to pray on the weakened mind

Death surrounds his ever present body
With bloodlust in his mind and soul
Worshiper of all evil commands
Nosferatu the deadliest foe

Fear comes with his name
Nosferatu
Bringer of life to the grave
Nosferatu
Many have tried to destroy you
Nosferatu
You have yet seen it all through
Nosferatu

Teeth gleam white, but they soon are red
By the light of the shadowing moon
Rides with the clouds and hides within
Awaiting there to devour you

Deceptive of their will to die and leave the Earth
The Vampire King he now shall remain
Throughout the ages, to prolong the curse
Of the teethmarks there in the vein

Fear comes with his name
Nosferatu
Bringer of life to the grave
Nosferatu
Many have tried to destroy you
Nosferatu
You have yet seen it all through
Nosferatu

Teeth gleam white, but they soon are red
By the light of the shadowing moon
Rides with the clouds and hides within
Awaiting there to devour you

Deceptive of their will to die and leave the Earth
The Vampire King he now shall remain
Throughout the ages, to prolong the curse
Of the teethmarks there in the vein

Fear comes with his name
Nosferatu
Bringer of life to the grave
Nosferatu
Many have tried to destroy you
Nosferatu
You have yet seen it all through
Nosferatu
8. He That Is Bound, Shall Be Freed (4:00)
9. Five Days to Death (3:48)
Five days I've got to suffer
In this cold and lonely cell
The judgement sentenced me to death
Five days of living hell

My brain is all askew inside
With thought of all my past
My mind plays out the major role
With me as supporting cast

I can't take no more
Destroying my mind
I can't pay this debt
To mankind

They drag me to the chair of death
And strap me down so tight
And now I can't take life no more
I've lost my helpless fight

Five days to death

A visit from my friends this day
But that just makes things worse
Around the room they sit and cry
There's nothing let to do but die

Oh, forty-eight hours now
The time it just went by
The sun goes down, the moon comes up
My last night's sleep arrived

I can't take no more
Destroying my mind
I can't pay this debt
To mankind

They drag me to the chair of death
And strap me down so tight
And now I can't take life no more
I've lost my helpless fight

Five days to death

I hear the rattle of the keys
As they unlock the door
The water runs down form my eyes
As I try and pray some more
I hear the rattle of the keys
As they unlock the door
The water runs down form my eyes
As I try and pray some more

I can't take no more
Destroying my mind
I can't pay this debt
To mankind

They drag me to the chair of death
And strap me down so tight
And now I can't take life no more
I've lost my helpless fight

Five days to death
