A Descent Into The Kingdom Of The Shades Lyrics

2. A Descent Into The Kingdom Of The Shades (5:46)
The wind, was whipping my face, glory is what I craved, As I proudly rode unaware, that soon I'd meet my fate.
Onwards we marched.
When the light of day light up, the field we were drawn up
ready to attack
the armies met with a deafening clang, yelling their battle
cries up to the sky
The Oracle:
"Most of man will fall, decimated by barbarian blades hades waits, women mourn, 'cause by twilight they'll be gone to the Kingdom Of The Shades"
May Mars be by our side, a vang of brutal pain, I feel onto my knees,the steel as cold as ice cruelty bit my flesh, and I passed through...
I stand in dark, shadows crowd the bank, of the river Styx
Hear them moan
Slowly I approach, the waters dark and thick, a boat is getting near
for my last voyage
Burning eyes of fire, ancient bones
boatman of Hades, sails to the bank, the time has come, take me away
Charon: "You know the price, pay me and I'll take you to the other side"
the silver coin I keep in my mouth is what I owe you.
Charon:"Get aboard."
I'm leaving light behind Hopeless eternity is now calling me.
Once with honour I fought, fear I knew not, butchered my enenies lied, cities fell at my feet, forever gone (are those days of glory)
The Shades:
"As we touch the ground Cerberus snarls guarding this grim place. Hades welcomes us all with a sombre, warm embrace to the Kingdom Of The Shades"
