Invictus Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Eagles       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. The Blood of Vengeance (1:53)
We are Descendants of the Ancient Ones
The Race beyond the Wanderers of Night
Who dwell in the Black Spaces between the Stars
From a Time before Time.
Long before this current Dynasty of Heaven
We Reigned And will Reign again...
For We contain the Divine Essence,
Made from the Flesh,
Blood and Bone of a God
Who walked in Flesh, and who cut off his own head...
Nourished by Fire, Water, Wind, Wrath, Rage and Tears
We Blossom at the Root of the Tree of Knowledge...
We wait and We remember... for the Blood of Man, is...
THE BLOOD OF VENGEANCE!!!!!!!
2. Invictus (5:35)
[ENDYAMON:]
I sing of Power, Magick and Faith
A Sonnet of Pure Victory
A Hymn to the Spirits of Freedom and Grace
And whichever Gods there may be...
Manacled, Beaten, Blackened and
Burned Cast from the
Light of the Goal I'll never falter, stumble or kneel
Thanks to the strength of my Soul
Lashed by the Winds of Fate
Stung by the Gods of Hate
I'm Rising in Power,
I'm Rising Unchained Call this a
Sacred Vow All that I tell you now I may be
Bloody, but I am unbowed I am Power
Harken the Hour,
Season and Day Phantom of Dark Misery
Summon your Demons,
Hunger and Hate Spirit of Impurity Ravaged by
Fire, stripped and enslaved
Torn from the World that I know I'll never cry out,
buckle or kneel I am the King of my Soul
Stung by the Gods of Wrath
Blinded by Circumstance
I'm Rising in Power,
I'm Rising Unchained
All that I tell you now
Sure as a Sacred Vow I may be
Bloody, but I am unbowed

[THE GODHEAD:]
Die, fall on your Sword, fall on your knees
Die like your
Son nailed to his tree
Die by my Hand, die by my Sword
Right on this Site,
Vultures defile

[ENDYAMON:]
Die, fall on your Sword,
fall on your knees Die in the
Sun nailed to these trees
Die by my Hand, die in my
Heart Flung from the Heights, forever fall
I sing of Power,
Magick and Might A Sonnet of Pure Victory
A Hymn to the Fearless, the Savage, the Brave
The Spirit of our Liberty
Total my debts, tally my sins, charge each offence on my
Scroll I'll never alter the course of my
Steele, I am the King of my Soul
Lashed by the Winds of Fate
Stung by the Gods of Hate
I'm Rising in Power through
Murdering Rain Stronger than Faith allows
Braver than Hero's Vows My Head is Bloody,
but I am unbowed
I AM POWER, POWER!!!!!!!
3. Mind, Body, Spirit (7:17)
[ENDYAMON:]
On the Bridge of Hades, searching for a
Sign On the brink of Knowledge, there's no time
Shadow of the Horseman who is sworn to rise
Seven are now waiting in the
Skies Warring Angels forage,
Scavengers of Pain I am born to Power,
Courage is my Name

[HUMANITY:]
Rise on the Wings of Truth, to the
Sun We know that Forever lives inside...
MIND, BODY, SPIRIT...
All are One

[ENDYAMON:]
Rising like a Tower, Fortune's Torch revives
Slicing every Rule that will divide
Who will hold the Red Queen when misfortune cries
Seven Bands are waiting in the Sky
Murder and Fire and Pain is the
Sign Swollen with Power your
Blood is my Wine
And I know!

[HUMANITY:]
Rise on the Wings of Doom, to the Sun
We know that Forever lives inside...
MIND, BODY, SPIRIT... All are One
MIND, BODY, SPIRIT... All are One!!!

[ENDYAMON:]
Prizing only Valor Numen steal the
Light On the brink of Knowledge
Burning Bright Shadow of the
Horseman who is sworn to rise
Sin and Death are waiting in the
Skies Murder and Fire and Pain is the
Sign Swollen with Power your
Blood is my Wine
And I know!

[HUMANITY:]
Rise on the Wings of Death, to the Sun
We know that Forever lives inside...

[ENDYAMON:]
I see my Vision, I see the Line
Circling onward, looking for
Nine I know the answer is not to be found
Searching in Darkness with eyes of the blind
And in the Morning,
Two will remain
To carry us onward, to Guard the Flame
That we know...
There'll be time... for All . . , for All
We don't need you, we're fine on our own
We don't want you, leave us alone...
Fortune is Fire as Numen we
Shine Invoking the Power, your
Blood is my Wine
and I know...
The Mind is a Tower,
the Body sublime The Soul is the Power, your
Blood is my Wine
and I know...
Leave us alone!!!
4. In the Arms of the Death God (1:19)
5. Through Blood and Fire (5:30)
[THE GODHEAD:]
I am the Master of this World of Ours
You are a Thorn in my side I am the Rock upon which you will break
Freedom or Death, you decide
For in the End there is no meaning to find
Only the Raging Sea and I will be there at the Door

[HUMANITY:]
THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - promises and lies
THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - we rise No more tomorrow on your side
THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - we rise

[ENDYAMON:]
Shatter the Sky with your
Thunder and Wrath To Honour the Questions we ask
Greatness is granted to those who betray I am the
Last of my kind Heaven and Hell exist inside us we've found
Drown in your Raging Sea for I will be there when you DIE!!!!!!!

[HUMANITY:]
THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - promises and lies
THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - we rise No more tomorrow, Deiceit
THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - we rise

THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - promises and lies
THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - we rise No more tomorrow on your side
THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - promises and lies
THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - we rise
No more tomorrow on your side
THROUGH BLOOD AND FIRE - WE RISE!!!
6. Sword of the Gods (7:32)
[ENDYAMON:]
(THE SWORD to I take to the Air, Fear breaks the will of denial)
You look for me there, hunting the
Skies I am soundless I fly to the Rainbow, I Conquer the Sky
The Hammer of Death,
THE SWORD OF THE GODS
Grant every Wish of Blood that calls to Blood I rise on the Air,
I rise on the Sea
Smashing the chains of denial for me
THE SWORD OF THE GODS!
You look for a Sign, nothing will reveal the Hour
The Burning of Rome was only a glimpse of my Power
My Armor is Flame Gold, I sever the Sky
The Hammer of Death,
THE SWORD OF THE GODS
Grant every Wish of Blood that calls to Blood I rise on the Air,
I rise on the Sea
Smashing with Flame your denial for me
THE SWORD OF THE GODS!
Watching your children die
Your fist to the Gods you cry, "
Why must it be, why am I damned, Forsaken",
I have always served your Shrines and Alters
Now I'll see you burn!

[ENDYAMON:]
Why must this come to pass Gods of the Heaven's vast,
await the Night you die Now...
THE SWORD OF THE GODS...
Rise...
Cold yet Burning, calm yet so murderous
We rise like Mist from the Earth As Above so it shall be Below
We invoke Death with one Final Prayer
Pain is the Sign
Where I will find the only shred of Magick that won't be left behind.
I take to the Air,
Fear rips the Temples of Power
My Law is despair, a Vision of Flame I am blinding
My Sword is the Rainbow, I sever the Sky

[THE SWORD:]
The Hammer of Death,
THE SWORD OF THE GODS
I am the Wish of Blood that calls to Blood I rise on the Air,
I rise on the Sea
Smashing the Flames of denial for me
THE SWORD OF THE GODS!
[ENDYAMON:]
The Blood of Man is the Blood of Vengeance!!!!!!!
THE SWORD OF THE GODS...
Die...
Down . ..
Die...
7. God of Our Sorrows (1:19)
GOD OF OUR SORROWS
your blade drinks deep
Earth feels the wound...
Earth Mother I am wronged,
Earth Mother I am wronged...
What comes on the
Wind can only be slain
By He who knows...
the Wind...
8. Vow of Honour (1:02)

10. Dust from the Burning (4:32)
[ENDYAMON:]
Back from the World between the Worlds
There are no Masters that I serve
From Seven Points of Darkness Shining Heavens's Rays,
Across the Ocean floor
What once was hidden now is raised

[ENDYAMON to Wrapped in the Holy Mists of Time EMALAITH:]
My Blood is yours and yours is mine
In Seven lives I've known you
It always ends the same
In pieces on the ground Between the Ashes and the Flames

[ENDYAMON:]
DUST FROM THE BURNING -
Fire and Water DUST FROM THE BURNING -
Sons and Daughters Slay all in sight, grant no respite
The Flame of Justice guides my hand
DUST FROM THE BURNING
DUST FROM THE BURNING -
Fire and Water
DUST FROM THE BURNING -
Sons and Daughters
In the Rising of Our Nation only the Strong Survive
Back from the World between the Worlds
There are no Masters that I serve
From Seven Points of Darkness Shining Heavens's Rays,
Across the Ocean floor What once was hidden now is raised
DUST FROM THE BURNING -
Fire and Water
DUST FROM THE BURNING -
Sons and Daughters
Slay all in sight, grant no respite
The Blade of Justice guides my hand
And the Day goes on by Caught up in the grip of their Lie Fire and Water,
Proud Sons and Daughters
After we die,
after we die,
only their Fear Remains
11. Amaranth (0:22)
12. A Whisper of Death (8:22)
[ENDYAMON "Show you no mercy, we're far from the Light in PURGATORY:]
Sign in the distance, leave it behind...
There is no meaning, when the promises are lies I'll bring you pain,
far from the Light...
I see the Rings around the Sun, I know their Names I see the
Colors turn and run, I stay the Same.
There is no meaning when the promises are lies I'll bring you pain,
far from the Light...

[ENDYAMON:]
(Victory, Holy War, I am reborn tonight on EARTH,
You will know, you will see the end of all former might
HEAVEN and Right in the window, I know where you are HELL)
Hunting and killing again
Holy Tomorrow I see where you are I will be there when you die!

[THE GODS:]
A WHISPER OF DEATH
I bring to you
The Sons of Tomorrow, I know that they're through
There'll be no mourning, the Skies are alive
A WHISPER OF DEATH,
Fall in the sight of your God
A WHISPER OF DEATH!

[ENDYAMON:]
Crush them all, kill their Reign
See them Fall from the Light Who will know, who will win
Seven years from tonight Gods in the mirror I know where you are
Haunting the still of the night
Holy Tomorrow I see where you are I will be there when you die!

[THE GODS:]
A WHISPER OF DEATH
I bring to you
The Gods of Tomorrow, I know that they're through
There'll be no warning, the Skies are alive
A WHISPER OF DEATH... ,
when the Spirit's torn from your Flesh...

14. A Shadow of Fear (6:11)
[THE GODHEAD:]
Black Cypress falling, cold winter snow
What are you asking, what should you know ? ? ?
Gods of Deliverance bleeding in shame
Don't pierce the Heavens lest you remain Divine...
Divine...

[ENDYAMON:]
Rise with the challenge, fortune and fame
All that lies bleeding, tortured and chained Gods of Deliverance,
Black Stars align All that you live for dies on the vine

[THE GODS:]
Rise on the Wind at the top of the
Gate We delight in your torment, fortune and Fate for we know...

[HUMANITY:]
We wander the Desert, the ice and the snow
Remember the Future is not what you're sold
The Gods of Deliverance, the Black Stars align
The only Survivors are whipped in the spine for we know...
yes we know...

[ENDYAMON:]
Rise with the Goddess, fortune is dead
All that you hope for bleeding instead
Gods of Deliverance searching in vain
Every last hour marks off your reign

[THE GODS:]
Rise like the Wind at the top of the
World We delight in your torture, fortune and Fate for we know...

[HUMANITY:]
We wander the Desert, the ice and the snow
Remember the Future is not what we're told
The Gods of Deliverance, the Black Stars align
The only Survivors our World is unkind for we know...
Victims of the World!!!

[ENDYAMON / We wander the Desert, the ice and the snow HUMANITY:]
Remember the Future is not what we're told
The Gods of Deliverance, the Black Stars align
The only Survivors are killed in their prime for we know...
We already know...
we already know...
already know...

[ENDYAMON to Black Cypress falling, cold winter snow EMALAITH:]
All that you hope for hidden and sold Cries on the Tempest,
I can't feel your eyes...
15. Theme from the Marriage of Heaven and Hell (0:22)
16. Veni, Vidi, Vici (10:43)
Are the Wings of Angels all a lie ?
Tell me is this not you
Are these Signs and warnings all we know ?
Tell me is this not you

West Wind at my shoulder,
North Wind at my back
On the Bridge of Death no turning back
The Cavern waits before me,
A Falcon at my fist
Seven Rings of Knowledge I exist . . .
To Kill !!!

Guardian of the Red Queen, Seven Rivers wide
This won't end til one of us has died
Eternal Death devour those who left their mark
Bleeding all the Light out of the Dark . . .
To Kill !!!

Gods of the Night, Gods of Day
Lead me to another place
We have the Force to make wrong right
As the River leaves the stream
All your yesterdays, shining bands unfold
With the Power to Smash !!!!!!!

WE CAME, WE SAW,
WE CONQUERED YOU ALL
WE CAME, WE SAW,
WE LIVE BY THE SWORD !!!
WE CAME, WE SAW,
WE CONQUERED YOU ALL
WE CAME, WE SAW,
WE LIVE BY THE SWORD !!!

Arrows rip my shoulder, forge a distant prize
Shadows of their Might I know their eyes
On the Black Horizon see our Banners Wave
Baring all Perdition for the Brave . . .
To Kill !!!

Gods of the Night, Gods of Day
Lead me to another place
We have the Force to make Wrong Right
As the River runs away . . .
All your yesterdays, shining bands of gold
With the Guardian that hangs on the Pine
We are Children of those who left their Mark
With the Power to Smash !!!!!!!

WE CAME, WE SAW,
WE CONQUERED YOU ALL
WE CAME, WE SAW,
WE LIVE BY THE SWORD !!!
WE CAME, WE SAW,
WE CONQUERED YOU ALL
WE CAME, WE SAW,

SHINE !!!

Gods of the Night, where are you now ?
I laugh at your Fate !
Fortune's on the run, see it now . . .

WE CAME, WE SAW,
WE CONQUERED YOU ALL
WE CAME, WE SAW,
WE LIVE BY THE SWORD !!!
WE CAME, WE SAW,
WE CONQUERED YOU ALL

Will we see the Light of Love
At the Edge of the world ?
Hold it now will we see the sun arise
Recognize the God in Man
At the Edge of the World
