Naked Steel (The Warrior's Saga) Lyrics

2. Naked Steel (The Warrior's Saga) (4:44)
Legends etched into the ancient stone dolmens on the Dark Moors...

[The Oracle Of War:]
The crows will pick your bones clean...
Never sweet the kiss of cold steel.


[The Warrior:]
Blades aflame with witch-fire burning,
Bright swords blessed by nine king's blood,
The elf-witch weaves war-spells upon us,
Neath the wolf-moon's gaze we shall slake our steel!

[The Warrior:]
Battle Magic empowers my thews!

[The Oracle Of War:]
The crows will pick your bones clean...

[The Warrior:]
Red-Tooth thirsts to smite and slaughter!

[The Oracle Of War:]
Never sweet the kiss of cold steel...

[The Shaman’s Decree:]
Born beneath the thrice-cursed cromlech (destined for deeds of greatness),
Three stars aligned to assauge thine newborn cries,
Foretold, the hilt of Red-Tooth awaits thine hand (kingdoms shall fall before thee!),
And in the Nine Scrolls thine death prophesized.

[The Warrior:]
The clarion of battle beckons me... Red-Tooth crackles with searing spectral energy.
Aye, emperors and kings shall perish beneath my blade! The head of the Eastern Chieftan
adorns my spear... I've a throne to usurp! INTO THE THICK OF THE FRAY!

[The Shaman’s Decree:]
This heart that pounds like a hammer,
This heart that pounds so strong,
This heart that pumps a great warrior's blood,
This heart will pound for half as long.

[The Warrior’s Vow:]
By all the gods... I swear the ireful edge of dwarf-forged steel shall meet all who dare
stand against me! My destiny awaits... I shall carve my path in carnage, and inscribe my
saga upon the scrolls of legendry in the spilled blood of slaughtered kings!

[The Oracle Of War:]
Carnage! And the crows shall feast upon the eyes of the slain!

The final dolmen of the Dark Moors is mysteriously missing, believed removed thousands of
years ago by troll war-bands as a trophy of battle...
