Wisdom Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Wisdom (9:30)
A sea of fire to cross, alone
The cries of gargoyles carved from stone
A writhing serpent tempts me with lies
As boiling black smoke burns the skies

Caught in an endless maze, forlorn
No hope, no sight, no dreams, no dawn
Despair lies cold and damp on my skin
Nothing but the light that burns within

I have seen mountains fall
Watched as time erased timeless walls
I have witnessed whole worlds fail
And seen serpents swallow their own tails

And yet, I am so full of love
Yeah, I am so full of love

Mantras written in gold leaf
Ancient words for peace
Wisdom carved in the living stone
To guide us home

I can see when I close my eyes
Earth, sea and sky
Hear the voice that speaks through me
Spread your wings and fly

Wisdom carved in stone
To guide us home
Earth, sea and sky
Fly!
2. On Black Wings, a Demon (4:13)
On black wings, a demon
Swept down on your town
He came along to kill everyone
And take your children down

But one man did stand alone
'gainst the demon on his land
The demon's disrespect for them
Had made him fucking mad

Yeah, he had the power
For he was young and bold
To strike the demon down
Leave him dead and cold

One swift strike did send the head
Rolling 'cross the floor
And bathed the man in blood
More and more and more

On black wings, a demon
Eyes like gleaming death
The young man knew just what to
Against that fiery breath

His shield was strong, and his sword was long
Brave heart within his chest
The village put their trust in him
'cos he's the fuckin' best
3. The Noctuus (9:06)
Born to howls and tears, surrounded by spears
The people, gripped with fear, beheld him

He had the eyes of a rat and the wings of a bat
"So what you think about that?" he asked them

And soon came the day they came to send him away
They said he could not stay among them

His existence was wrong he'd terrorized them too long
200 villagers strong upon him

The Noctuus smiled, and drew back his hood
Flames erupted from the ground where he stood
They tried to run but none of them could
The Noctuus! The Noctuus!

Babes were pulled screaming out of their beds
While the villagers pleaded and begged
Morning came and the village was dead
The Noctuus! The Noctuus!
4. The Earth Will Deliver What Heaven Desires (8:24)
I saw a stone
Cast there by no-one
Fallen from Earth unto the Heavens

Etched in the stone
You will return
There's still so much left to be done

Our souls will be cleansed by
White fire, white fire
The Earth will deliver
What Heaven desires

I saw a stone
Cast there by no-one
Fallen from Earth unto the Heavens
5. The Order (1:25)
We are The Order of Israfel
We are The Order of Israfel
We are The Order of Israfel
We are The Order

We are The Order of Israfel
We are The Order of Israfel
We are The Order of Israfel
We are The Order

We are The Order of Israfel
We are The Order of Israfel
We are The Order of Israfel
We are The Order
6. Born for War (4:04)
We've languished long enough here
Wait 'til morning, send the dogs in
Too long imprisoned by fear
There are many who'll never leave here
A silent thought
For those born to walk on
Forever

Born for war
Seek your sword

Our lifetime will not see peace
Look around you, you must know this
10.000 march through black mist
Strength within them lives on in all men
A silent thought
For those born to fight on
Forever

Born for war
Choose your cause
7. Promises Made to the Earth (15:40)
The old man led the way
Down a road lined by graves
To a city that lay in flames
Oaths of blood can't be washed away

Howling ghosts line the road
Warning me not to follow
Certain death 'ere I go
But there's something that I must know

Promises made to the Earth
Etched into me since birth
I must honour them first
Or forever be cursed
8. The Vow (3:10)
9. Morning Sun (Satanas) (9:16)
The day I sold my soul to him
I saw the legions of death waiting
I swung the gates
And then I let them in
That final morning
I saw the doom of men dawning

I was sworn in
I'd ignored every warning

Bow to none all undone
He's come morning sun

The black gates stood yawning
And through the gates
They came swarming

Bow to none all undone
He's come morning sun

The world of men must fall
Now all is lost
Oh Lord
I have damned us all
Forever more
Satanas
