Battle Cry Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Death Rider (3:28)
Ride against the wind shameless killer in the night
Rape another village before the break of light
Trample down the ashes grind them with your hate
Take another heplpess life before it's too late

[Chorus:]

Death rider you've taken the earth by storm
Death rider out of sin and hatred you were born

We all know the reason you haven't any soul
None can fight your power the key to hell you stole
Upon a flaming steed you ride sickle tight in hand
In darkness you were born in darkness you make your stand

[Chorus]

Ride against the wind shameless killer in the night
Rape another village before the break of light
Trample down the ashes grind them with your hate
Take another helpless life before it's too late

[Chorus]
2. The Axeman (4:27)
In the days of darkness men feared not the sword and the lance
Nor did he fear the beast of fire... He feared...
THE AXEMAN!!

Once we lose our precious dream there's nothing left to fight
Now you are bound and gagged one last meal is your final right
Many have tried you're not the only one waiting for that final mourn
The future's set dawn is coming time is now the mask will be worn

[Chorus:]

Bow down to the axeman hooded figure of mortal fear
Bow down to the axeman sun is rising time is near

Darkness fills your parting soul mystical power was yours alone
You stole the king's crown of gold claiming his kingdom for your own
Good and evil clash in battle armies fight into the night
Steel and iron ring out the warning powers on the side of right

[Chorus]

The sign of the king unites us all our fight for freedom rages on
Against warriors of light many fall our dreams of peace are not all gone
Once we lose that precious dream there's nothing left to fight
Now you are bound and gagged one last meal is your final right

[Chorus]
3. Last Rites (3:41)
Off in the distance the church bell rings and the raven spreads his wings
Shadows of steel fall silent in the gloom one last full moon
The future is lost payment for the crime there's no way out this time

[Chorus:]

No sound from the gallows no sound from the shadows tall
Only silence till morning only silence till churchbells toll
No sound from the gallows

You feel the cold of the stone below your feet now your sorrow is complete
Have your last meal water and bread as the last rites are read
A new dawn approaches take your last breath you are one step from death

[Chorus]

Up to the steps mobs cheer you on who will cry when you're gone
Bound hand and foot the hood is in place pray for God's holy grace
Off in the distance hear the churchbell ring now the angels will sing

[Chorus]
4. Dragon's Breath (3:01)
Gaze into the valley where broken bodies lie
Watch the smoke that's rising a sign that more shall die
The beast has taken many the ashes tell the tale
Lord we ask for mercy and set out on the trail

[Chorus:]

Give us all sanctuary dragon's breath we fear
Shelter us from the burning dragon's breath is near
Spitting flame and fire dragon's here

Searching for a place where we can stand and fight
Death is the only trace left behind this night
From the black abyss he rumbles all the earth
With a demon kiss he claims another birth

[Chorus]

Oh dear lord save us all from the death, Dragon's Breath

[Chorus]
5. Be My Wench (4:03)
She comes to me in the middle of the night wearing only silk and lace
Bearing the gifts of sex and wine with a burning embrace
Long wavy hair of flaxen gold surrounds me in a dream
She's too young to be so bold I wanna make her scream

[Chorus:]

Be my wench tonight oh maiden so fair
Be my wench tonight pleasure is yours if you dare

Don't you worry that I won't give in the proof is right there in your hand
Some will say you are living in sin but they don't understand
The truth is you have nothing to lose woman come here to me
If it is lust and desire you choose I'll set your spirit free

[Chorus]

Live in the moment passions run wild what pleasure it brings
You have the body and face of a child you've never felt such things
The truth is you have nothing to lose woman come here to me
If it is lust and desire you choose I'll set your spirit free

[Chorus]
6. Battle Cry (3:44)
Catch a fleeting glimpse then be on your way
Oh the end is near if you choose to stay
This forsaken land torn by grief and strife
No it's not worth the value of your life

[Chorus:]

The smell of death lingers in the air
Bloodstained bodies scattered everywhere
In the distance thunder in the sky
See the sorrow, hear the battlecry, battlecry

The carnage races on well into the night
As the sun creeps up we see the morning light
On the battlefield the tragedy of dawn
Through the crimson tide we still carry on

[Chorus]
7. Die by the Blade (3:10)
All through the night steel by your side
Journey into the darkness beyond southern lights
A mission of vengeance and terror we are the reign
You live by the sword you'll die die by the blade

You stand in my way a fatal mistake
The path of destruction lies lies in your way
Nowhere to run the nightmare is real
There's no way escaping the wrath the wrath of my steel

[Chorus:]

You live by the sword you'll die by the blade
Stand for the fight your life I will take
You'll die by the blade

On into the night steel by your side
Journey into the darkness beyond southern lights
A mission of vengeance and terror we are the reign
You live by the sword you'll die die by the blade

[Chorus]
8. Prince of Darkness (2:46)
In shadows creeping, while you're sleeping the demon caresses your soul
Dreams are the place where you meet face to face
With all of the fears that you know
You walk in a daze you can't see through the haze
It's time that you started to run
Back through the ages you turn back the pages before God created the sun

[Chorus:]

Do you know his name he is the founder of death to us all
Do you know who to blame he leads us to slaughter and laughs as we fall

With arms outreaching, banshees screeching the wind it howls out your name
You run till you're heaving it's hard when you're breathing
Only the smoke from hell's flame
Darkness is calling you down you are falling
You're hoping that soon it will end
The nightmare is breaking the strength you are faking
The truth comes to mind once again

[Chorus]

[repeat 1st verse]
[Chorus]

He may win the battle but not win the war
We will not give him places to dwell
Soon armageddon will come like the thunder the prince will be blasted to hell!
9. Bring Out the Beast (4:10)
If you know what I am thinking deep inside my mind
Maybe you will take a chance not fearing what you'll find

[Chorus:]

You bring out the beast in me woman you are hot and I'm on fire
All night we set the world ablaze you bring out the beast in me

Your eyes flash intention you move into my sights
I will deliver the hardness we hunger for the nights

[Chorus]

Scratch my back I'll scratch yours too
With all this pleasure we need black and blue
I never learned a thing all I do is take
The game is over I'm burning at the stake

[Chorus]

If you scratch my back I'll scratch yours too
With all this pleasure we need black and blue
I never learned a thing all I do is take
The game is over I'm burning at the stake

[Chorus]
10. In the Arena (4:05)
The sweat just pours from your body combat is nigh
Into the arena we march to die

Your blood spills to the ground your body feels broken
You face the earth and breathe the dust again
Your head is spinning you feel another blow
You hear the steel rip you to the bone

[Chorus:]

In the arena oh mighty gladiator
In the arena you are the chosen warrior

In armor and mail you were born to fight
Learned how to kill keeping the gold in sight
Who can match your fury none can give you such pain
Part man and beast time to battle again

[Chorus]

Your head is spinning you feel another blow
You hear the steel rip you to the bone
Your blood spills to the ground your body feels broken
You hear the steel rip you to the bone

[Chorus]
