The Holy Empire Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. 70,000 Sorrows (6:55)
In the fields of the flesh there was battle
When the Sword of the Lord came to take me back
My spirit burned with fire, my eyes were full of tears

The Lord moved with power
He came to find me when I was lost
He took my sins to a mountain and he nailed them to a cross

In the years of my youth there was battle
When the legions of Hell led the main attack
My life was full of horror, my mind was full of fear

The Sword slew with power
The legions lay on the battle field
He lifted me from the mire and he clothed me with His shield

70,000 Sorrows, 70,000 tears
70,000 sufferings written across my years
70,000 Sorrows, 70,000 stays
70,000 epitaphs written across my face

70,000 Sorrows, 70,000 tears
70,000 sufferings written across my years
70,000 Sorrows, 70,000 stays
70,000 epitaphs written across my face

70,000 Sorrows, 70,000 tears
70,000 sufferings written across my years
70,000 Sorrows, 70,000 stays
70,000 epitaphs written across my grave
2. Glory (6:24)
When I was young, I cast aside the shadows of my youth
And I lifted up my eyes to the skies
I spread my wings, I sailed the seven seas
For Glory and all that it seemed

And through my love, I passed inside the hallows of my heart
And I lifted up my cries to the heights
But no one cared, No one even dared
And Glory evaded my dreams

Now I tell you this tale, this story
When I set my own sails for my dreams
In the Author of Life I found Glory
And the honor and power of my King

Now in my age, I've looked beyond horizons of the past
And I realized that fame was but a thing
I wrote my score, I wanted even more
And Glory said "No" to my theme

Now I tell you this tale, this story
When I set my own sails for my dreams
In the Author of Life I found Glory
And the honor and power of my King

Now I tell you this tale, this story
When I set my own sails for my dreams
In the Author of Life I found Glory
And the honor and power of my King
And the honor and power of my King
3. Thy Kingdom Come (6:49)
Why in the world do we feed all our leaders
With treasure they steal from the poor?
And why in the world do we seal them as keepers
With measure of power we abhor?

Behold in the sky is the rising Son
We let these chains be undone
Thy Kingdom Come
Thy Will Be Done
For he who has an ear, I pray that he might hear

How many men must we damn to their passions
Before we cry out in dismay?
Yet time and again we just stand up for action
Our words just get lost in the fray

Why do we put such corruption in power
We know they will fail and consume?
Perhaps it is we who have failed as a people
We reap what we sow in our tombs.

Behold in the sky is the rising Son
We let these chains be undone
Thy Kingdom Come
Thy Will Be Done
For he who has an ear, I pray that he might hear
4. City Walls of Troy (3:34)
In the night I hear a sound
The City Walls of Troy are falling down
In the night I see its doom
The City Walls of Troy have become ruin

In the night I see the horse
Odysseus has won his final war
In the night I hear the lie
Odysseus has fooled them by surprise

Oh, great city walls, ruins of man
Oh, City of Troy, the burning land

In the night I see the land
The City Walls of Troy no longer stand
In the night I hear them say
The City Walls of Troy have died today
5. Kill Zone (7:37)
Insurgents have taken the city
Civilians have moved out of town
A city besieged, the death that will be
For men will be killed and be downed
For men will be killed and be downed

The skies they are loaded with cannons
And I've been thrust into the throes
I smash and destroy the houses of those
And I now I have entered the Kill Zone
And I now I have entered the Zone

Soldiery is my life!
Strategy? Live or die!

It's Killing Time
Killing Time
Killing Time
It's Killing Time

The war it just rages for ages
The stench of the dead that I loathe
I feed my machine guns and I roar
Pouring out lead from the Zone
Pouring out lead from the Zone

Savagery is my life! Butchery or I die!

The final assault on Fallujah
A mission to search and destroy
The foreign jihad has come here to fight
For Allah and Prophet they'll die
For Allah and Prophet they'll die

Explosives and Suicided Bombers
I storm through their hideouts unknown
I blow out their brains and scatter the floor
Shredding their flesh and their bones
Shredding their flesh and their bones
Slaughtering, I want more!
Annihilating, I am War!
6. Night of the Fury (7:14)
Soaring through heavens with fire and steel
The Predator spies out for enemy kill
'Tis the Night of the Fury, the nation's at war
With Spirit and Nighthawk, a thunderous roar

And where does the terrorist flee?
Are his caves and his compounds free?
For the Night of the Fury brings Death and Hell

The Night of the Fury comes out of the void
With Hellfire missiles, the Falcon's deployed
There's no sign of worry, there's quiet and still
Then out of the heavens comes lightning to kill

And where does the terrorist flee?
Are his caves and his compounds free?
For the Night of the Fury brings Death and Hell

A nation at war, then what must we do?
If war is for killing, then killing we do.
Yes war is but cruelty and funeral bells
Destroyers we are, so send them to Hell

The Night of the Fury in darkness of light
The AC-130, a blistering strike
The Night of the Fury is the ultimate fear
For jihadi commanders, spear after spear

And where does the terrorist flee?
Are his caves and his compounds free?
For the Night of the Fury brings Death and Hell
7. Father (5:21)
Father, if all I can be is a man
And all I can ask of you Father, my Father
How can I be of your plan?

Send me a sign from the heavens
In riddle or rhyme
Descend from the skies of forever
Pray give me a time
For I have reached the end of the line

Defender of truth and of freedom
Am I living a lie?
I render my fruits to thy kingdom
Pray give me sign
For I am weak, how long can I fight?

Father, when can I see you again?
And when can I be with you Father?
You gave up your life for me then, and when I needed you,
Father, when can I see you again?
And when can I be with you Father?
You gave up your life for me then, and when I needed a friend.

Father, your Spirit I'm longing to bring
In tears can I ask of you Father, my Father
To play your song through my strings?
8. The Holy Empire (11:30)
In the life that we live there is hardship and sorrow.
The pain that we share is but one and the same.
We fight to survive in a world that is hollow,
But where do we go from here?
Yes where do we go from here?

In the life that we live is there hope for the morrow?
The stain of our sins, they have blackened our name.
What will it be, should we beg, should we borrow?
The keys of the kingdom to be,
Yes the keys of the kingdom to be.

By force and by chain, the world is enslaving.
The source of our pain is the evil of man.
There is no escape from the woes of this sorrow
So where do we go from here?

To "The Holy Empire" kingdoms fall.
For "The Holy Empire" conquers all.
When "The Holy Empire" dawns.
We will live in peace with man and God.

To "The Holy Empire" mankind falls.
For "The Holy Empire" conquers all.
When "The Holy Empire" dawns.
We will live in peace with man and God.
