Flight of the Griffin Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Hawk The Slayer (4:20)
To my God, hear me now, give me strength to be brave
Through the heat and the smoke, there's but little to save
The fires raged on throughout the night, and now through the day
Many deaths have been tolled, now the price must be paid

Assemble at once, tonight we ride

Horses gaining as torches flame through the
Black night, riders have come to destroy
It's the last frontier, it's a night of fear
Brave riders will fall prey, they answer the call this day
Don't stop crossing burning bridges past the night watch
Lead the quest for independence
Hawk has come to claim his vengeance
Men have tried, many men have died
To oppose the dark one, your life's in your hands
You had best beware, you must be prepared
Together we break through, there's no time to lose
He must stand, we must protect the land
The mighty hawk must not be stopped
He wields his sword cast by his lord
The fog is creeping in, the battle must begin, we fight
2. Heavy Metal Attack (5:05)
Crusaders set forth from the castle
So graciously march to the sea
Prepared for a blood thirsty battle
The warships set sail dreams of victory
New fighting from the inside, cruel love for vengeance will prevail

By night fall the castle's surrounded
The roadhouse and moat are ablaze
The order is given, advance to the wall
Pursue till the victory is gained
New fighting from the inside, cruel love for vengeance will prevail
Never abandon their conquest in life, courageously sworn to their faith

Heavy metal attack, fighting hand to hand on the field of glory
Heavy metal attack, to the death they will fight and endure the pain
Heavy metal attack, hear the sound of the steel clash with passion and fury
Heavy metal attack, those who live by the sword also die by the blade

By daybreak the castle has fallen
The smouldering ruin remains·
Cries of the wounded are heard across the land
They cry for their God to be saved
New fighting from the inside, cruel love for vengeance will prevail
Never abandon their conquest in life, courageously sworn to their faith

Heavy metal attack, fighting hand to hand on the field of glory
Heavy metal attack, to the death they will fight and endure the pain
Heavy metal attack, hear the sound of the steel clash with passion and fury
Heavy metal attack, those who live by the sword also die by the blade
Heavy metal attack, lingers on greets the dawn with the slaughter of thousands
Heavy metal attack, to their God and the king was their life what they gave
3. Submission (4:13)
Just when you had no hope, thought you were going mad
You felt the time is right just that the karma's bad
And an impersonal world in which you must be strong
It isn't pleasure it's possession, no excitement when the thrill is gone

We've just begun to fight it, right on
Got to start resisting, 'for we wind up in hell
The very reason to resist, so right on

You're on your own, you lock yourself up, throw away the key
Then you're whipped into a frenzy, down upon your knees
You show your animal instinct only to survive
You realize that in a sick way, it's apparent that you're still alive

He've just begun to fight it, right on
Got to start resisting, 'for we wind up in hell
The very reason to resist, so right on

They stop at nothing, thrive on submission
Ya got me down, ya got me down on the floor
It's all or nothing, resist submission
Can't feed the fire, can't feed the fire no more

when the pleasure ends and the thrill is gone
Is when you ask your God for mercy, were you right or wrong
So when the devil comes to take away your soul
Is when you find you're just a number and there's nothing left for you to hold

we've just begun to fight it, right on
Got to start resisting,'for we wind up in hell
The very reason to resist, so right on

They stop at nothing, thrive on submission
Ya got me down, ya got me down on the floor
It's all or nothing, resist submission
Can't feed the fire, can't feed the.fire no more
4. Creeper (4:01)
From out of the night a cry from far below the streets
Deep in the heart of the city
An underground world remains to be unknown
Don't expect it to be very pretty
Can't walk the streets at night untested, don't walk along,
You never know what lurks behind

Some night you might just meet the creeper
Better beware the creeper seems to read your mind

You're on your way home, you‘re starting to unwind
From a day of tension and strain
You ask yourself why you're not alone tonight
Now you're starting to feel very strange
Don't overlook the unexpected, can't understand
Something's in the air tonight

You feel the presence of the creeper
Losing your nerve, you can't escape the sudden fright
You're not laughing

Trapped in an alley, only one way out
Now you see what you've done to yourself
You're coming unglued, got your back to the wall
Could this be an illusion so tell
There's something creeping down the alley
Don't make a sound, your heart is beating like a drum
Trapped like a rat, God only knows, what fate awaits you
Needless to say you only wish that you had run

The time has come to meet the creeper
Bigger than life as he appears with eyes of fire
Prince of the night, now there's a shadow cast upon you
Fear for your life, he gives and takes what he desires
5. Flight Of The Griffin (6:07)
Ascends to the earth in the form, and the spirit as one
Created the sovereign protector, his kingdon has come

Among the stars in the sky, there's magic in the air
A kingdom of fire, destroyers everywhere
By light of the moon, a golden figure stands
A symbol of God, a conqueror of man

Spreads his wings from out of the sun, a king of all kings
The cross that he bears, the road that he holds, his story‘s been told

He peers fron above, through misty morning fog
The moment is right, it shouldn't take too long
Down from the sky, in search of precious stone
Will not be denied what he admires most

Stacks his prey, his presence is felt, his power so great
He lives by the cross, possesses magic claws, his reign lingers on and on

Rose from the ashes, successor to the throne
Place of his origin isnt known
He seems to exist, been seen in nany forms
The winged beast appears and then he goes
Where, no one knows, to seek out the treasure of his soul
6. Fire In The Sky (4:45)
Fire In The Sky

Has anybody even stopped to wonder
Where the future lies
Running from the devil, always poisoning my mind
Ride a train to nowhere, could be running out of time

Let's put a to all the madness, living just to die
The grand illusion, World war III
It need be no surprise
The dogs of war they have no conscious
Fill us full of lies
There aint no use in talking, they don't care to realize
Be melting into nothingness like right before our eyes

CHORUS:

Nowhere to run, the time bomb's ticking
Nowhere to run, don't wanna die
No place to hide, be no escaping
Can't fight the fire in the sky

Traveling past the speed of light, super sonic blast
People falling all around to the ground
They're falling much to fast
It's much to late, you can't escape, too late to be saved
You realize you're about to die, it's a breath away
7. Hell Runneth Over (3:37)
High in the mountains and up in the hills for thrills
A place that's so sacred that not many will talk about the chills
Fresh mountain air leaves you little to spare, backpacker's dream
Must not be fooled by the beauty, it isn't what it seems

A legend is known of a friend who spreads terror in the hills
Who sought out his victims, never was caught, the legend lives
Still people avoid to see truth as it stares them in the eyes
They don't hear the warning until it's too late or time to die

Hell runneth over, danger is lurking in the woods
Hell runneth over, something is wrong it's understood
Hell runneth over, could be a shadow in the night
Hell runneth over, better beware, fear for you life

Innocent victims get lost in the woods most every day
Can't even imagine or couldn't care less what people say
Stalking the campgrounds, prowling the trails, he comes and goes
Can't be too careful alone in the woods, be on your toes

Hell runneth over, hiking alone along the trail
Hell runneth over, pray that you live to tell the tale
Hell runneth over, notice that everything is still
Hell runneth over, sun's going down, you get a chill

Tension is mounting, don‘t know what‘s taken over you
Thought you saw something, too scared to look, you could be through
Don't know what‘s out there, only it‘s getting very near
Running in circles, you're getting confused, nothing is clear

Hell runneth over, eyes are upon your every move
Hell runneth over, all by yourself, what can you do
Hell runneth over, isn't it true you chose your fate
Run out of time, your life's on the line, now it's too late
8. Judgement Day (4:22)
Does anybody know about where we've come
Been wreaking havoc, never chose to run
Deploring utter cries for what we've done
when metal rules the world we'll stand as one

The final word will come on Judgement Day
Don't he suprised, you've all been warned, make no mistake
Judgement will be done, we stand together, all for one

They've tried to stop us, tooth and nail we fought
Still try to smear our name, we cant be bought
The very reason that we linger on
Dur metal forces gather, growing strong

The final word will come on Judgement Day
Don't be suprised, you've all been warned, make no mistake
Judgement will be done, we stand together, all for one
9. Travelling In Time (5:19)
Ever get the feeling when you know you're lost right from the moment
Feels like you're lost in time, somthing inside your mind has taken over
Someone's got your number, thought you heard a voice, your name was spoken
You felt the past speak, you know not what you seek, it's really nowhere
Traveling in time out on the astral plane, perpetual motion
Had time to catch a cloud, could only hear my heartbeat, I was nowhere to be found

How could you ever really see a certain likeness, could it be
You're looking up, you're somewhere on the ground
You feel a force of nature calling
All at once you feel you're falling
A place where restless spirits can be found

Travelling in time to places so far away
Travelling in time out on the astral plane

A crime of passion, are you still dreaming
In your eyes I see you're scheming
Your magnetism that follows and devours
A forceful will that's so disruptive
Penetrating and seductive
Can not be broke by any earthly power

Travelling in time to places so far away
Travelling in time out on the astral plane

It calls, a voice in the wind
So strange, the feeling begins
You feel overcome and now you submit
Your desire is raging within
