Burnt Offerings Lyrics

Track rating :  92.5 / 100      Votes :  2     
Summoned to the house of seance to play the evil tarot cards
To find out what our fate will bring us before the war
Approaching now the hour of tiamat; evil feelings in the air
The chosen wait impatiently to find the...

Rituals of power come out of the fire
Making the legacy known
Takes its toll at last
Now knowing when it strikes

The endless feuding shows its fate, the people are all shocked with fright
They know the end is coming near - it's time to fight
The revolution holds on strong, the armies have all met their match
Entire world up in arms; destruction sees...

The spirits of anger come up from the gallows
Conjured my demons appear
Summoned to my cast, prey this deadly mass
Takin' by the fire you fail

The world became a vast wasteland, survivors turn to cannibals
Killing everything in sight: warfare tonight
The armies are all closing in, the populations getting small
The feelings are as cold as ice, survival names it's price

Starting to burn, the rape and violence grows high
A kingdom will rise to rule with contempt
They will surprise, kill and repent
The weakness in armies won't die! Won't die! Won't die!!!

Leaving now the house of seance, speculating destiny
Wonder if the cards were true, will wait to find out and will wait to see
