Defiance Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Besi Karat (2016-03-26)
1. Inquisitor (4:48)
In fourteen ninety two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue
But the hills in Spain were drenched in blood and holy pain
Torquemada led the fray, made sure he had his way
Infidels and non-believers like cattle he did slay

Down in the dungeons there'll be whippin' tonight
Accept Jesus and you'll be saved
Down in the dungeons there'll be whippin' tonight
Accept Jesus and you'll be saved

Inquisitor, what god did you serve
Inquisitor, what did you learn
Inquisitor, what did you say
when it was your turn to pay

Queen Isabella stood silent,
Priests and monks tortured and maimed
For the glory of God, the glory of God's good name
Madrid burned them at the stake,
All done for the church's sake
Confess your sins, or you'll burn in the fiery lake

Down in the dungeons there'll be whippin' tonight
Accept Jesus and you'll be saved
Down in the dungeons there'll be whippin' tonight
Accept Jesus and you'll be saved

Inquisitor, what god did you serve
Inquisitor, what did you learn
Inquisitor, what did you say
when it was your turn to pay

Down in the dungeons there'll be whippin' tonight
Accept Jesus and you'll be saved
Down in the dungeons there'll be whippin' tonight
Accept Jesus and you'll be saved

Inquisitor, what god did you serve
Inquisitor, what did you learn
Inquisitor, what did you say
when it was your turn to pay
2. Once and Future King (4:28)
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, as it is in heaven
The battles won, thy chosen son, lives on forever

We call upon the throne
the once and future king
The battles fought are known
and victories are owned

Across the sea I sail
my vow I will fulfill
Dreams I have forsaken
to find the lost throne

I can not, I will not, give up the right to be the king
I can not, I will not, forsake the crown that bears my name

There lies the castle
My lady of the lake
I'll have no other
until she is awake

I can not, I will not, give up the right to be the king
I can not, I will not, forsake the crown that bears my name

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, as it is in heaven
The battles won, thy chosen son, lives on forever

Something stirs in the east
an evil heart that beats
A man born of satan
he fell into the heat

I can not, I will not, give up the right to be the king
I can not, I will not, forsake the crown that bears my name
3. Defiance (4:37)
When the world has grown cold
and all have forsaken me
I will not falter, nor stray
I'll fight 'til the end
I'll never give in
as long as I live and I breathe
For I shall remain defiant
Defiant I will remain

When there's darkness around
no friends to be found
I will fight and I'll win
Like a night without end
steel does not bend
I will deliver us from evil

Oh oh let the cold wind blow
oh let the thunder roar
Oh oh let the cold wind glow
Oh let the thunder roar
I'll be defiant to the end
Until the day that I die

I'd rather fight than live on my knees
Now is my time to be free
Let them all stand aside
It's time that they learn
learn that the king has returned
Let the sword be my guide
to light up my way
this time they'll all have to pay

Oh oh let the cold wind blow
oh let the thunder roar
Oh oh let the cold wind glow
Oh let the thunder roar
I'll be defiant to the end
Until the day that I die

When there's darkness around
no friends to be found
I will fight and I'll win
Like a night without end
steel will not bend
I will deliver us from evil

Oh oh let the cold wind blow
oh let the thunder roar
Oh oh let the cold wind glow
Oh let the thunder roar
I'll be defiant to the end
Until the day that I die
4. Day of the Reaper (3:41)
You better beware, you better take care
there is no escape from the cold hands of fate
If you've been bad and I know that you have
the time has come to plead for your life

It's the day of the reaper, it's the end of your life
It's the day of the reaper, face the light
It's the day of the reaper, it's the end of your life
It's the day of the reaper, face the light

Don't look in his eyes for he's not alive
He will not answer as you plead for your life
You may possess wealth, you may possess fame
but in the end there's a price to be paid

It's the day of the reaper, it's the end of your life
It's the day of the reaper, face the light
It's the day of the reaper, it's the end of your life
It's the day of the reaper, face the light

You better beware, you better take care
there is no escape from the cold hands of fate
If you've been bad and I know that you have
the time has come to plead for your life

It's the day of the reaper, it's the end of your life
It's the day of the reaper, face the light
It's the day of the reaper, it's the end of your life
It's the day of the reaper, face the light
5. Indian Nation (5:51)
Spirits of the wind guide my arrows
Spirits of the sun light my way
We are strong, we are brave
Let us live to fight another day

Stand with courage, stand with pride
rise all warriors, prepare to die
When the battle is over, smoke will rise
the blood that's spilled will not be mine

Indian nation, Indian nation, one day we'll be free
Indian nation, Indian nation, to live in harmony

White man came with guns and swords
Women and children taken by force
Took our land, but not our pride
No remorse, only lies

Indian nation, Indian nation, one day we'll be free
Indian nation, Indian nation, to live in harmony

Spirits of the wind, spirits of the sun
Spirits of the land, guide my arrows

Indian nation, Indian nation, one day we'll be free
Indian nation, Indian nation, to live in harmony
6. Black Clouds of Thanos (9:22)
In the midst of the never ending darkness
I stand and wait, watch the sun begin to fade
An evil place where hope is slowly dying
A sleepy village where fear and hatred reign

I've been waiting and I've been trying
There's no time to escape
From the black clouds of Thanos
There is no escape
Black clouds of Thanos
The death toll awaits
Black clouds of Thanos
Scenes flashing by
Black clouds of Thanos
It's your turn to die

He comes before you like an ordinary man
Hiding the truth and the nature of his plans
Look in the mirror, you'll see he's not alive’
And if you question it will be your turn to Die

I've been waiting and I've been trying
There's no time to escape
From the black clouds of Thanos
There is no escape
Black clouds of Thanos
The death toll awaits
Black clouds of Thanos
Scenes flashing by
Black clouds of Thanos
It's your turn to die

(solo)

Look in the sky, see the night surround the sun
The end of days has finally arrived
Look in your heart and see the pain you've made
Maybe there's time for you to be saved

I've been waiting and I've been trying
There's no time to escape
From the black clouds of Thanos
There is no escape
Black clouds of Thanos
The death toll awaits
Black clouds of Thanos
Scenes flashing by
Black clouds of Thanos
It's your turn to die

The blackened skies
scream out your name
The heaven's cry
like and endless rain

What has begun
can never be changed
What has not died
will forever remain

And in the end
when all is gone
All that survives
will never die

What has begun
can never be changed
What has not died
will forever remain
7. The King Must Die (3:08)
The king is sitting on his throne
counting all his gold
unaware of danger nearby
The lord of the manor
sitting by his side
evil plans on his mind

And the ladies in waiting will wait forever more
Treason buried in lies
And all is not quiet on this dark unholy night
Tonight the king must die

The jester and the servants
conspire, plot and lie
At midnight one of them will try
The queen and her lover
meet like thieves in the night
waiting for the clock to strike

And the ladies in waiting will wait forever more
Treason buried in lies
And all is not quiet on this dark unholy night
Tonight the king must die

The king is sitting on his throne
counting all his gold
unaware of danger nearby
The lord of the manor
sitting by his side
evil plans on his mind

And the ladies in waiting will wait forever more
Treason buried in lies
And all is not quiet on this dark unholy night
Tonight the king must die
8. Ancient Ones (4:42)
Sit by my side, tell you a story
story of the ancient ones
Sit by the fire, listen to the tale
tale of the ancient ones

From an ancient time, a line divine
ruled the warrior kings
Blood and steel, a kingdom wrought
forged with honor and pride

With a chalice made of gold, crown upon their thrown
hail the mighty kings of old
The castle gates now closed, winds of fate blow cold
the legend lives as once foretold

Ancient ones, oh sacred ones, give us strength to carry on
Ancient ones, oh sacred ones, give us strength to carry on and on

Brothers in arms, sword and shield
defending the royal crown
Sworn to an oath, victory or death
save the helpless ones

Discipline, strength, honor and pride
the code of the ancient ones
Buried in time, the fight's not lost
their spirits live on

With a chalice made of gold, crown upon their thrown
hail the mighty kings of old
The castle gates now closed, winds of fate blow cold
the legend lives as once foretold

Ancient ones, oh sacred ones, give us strength to carry on
Ancient ones, oh sacred ones, give us strength to carry on and on
9. Catch the Rainbow (Rainbow cover) (4:46)
When evening falls
She'll run to me
Like whispered dreams
Your eyes can't see

Soft and warm
She'll touch my face
A bed of straw
Against the lace

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
Sail away on ships of wonder

But life's not a wheel
With chains made of steel
So bless me

Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
And sail away on ships of wonder

But life's not a wheel
With chains made of steel
So bless me, oh bless me, bless me

Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
10. The Beast Inside (3:44)
All my life I've been afraid
This thing burns inside
Lurking beneath my skin
Waiting for my strength to give in

Now the battle lines are drawn
The battle rages on
I'll fight until I die
or kill the beast inside

It's a curse I have to live with
Evil thing haunts my mind
Stripped away my defenses
No escape, it's there all the time

Now the battle lines are drawn
The battle rages on
I'll fight until I die
or kill the beast inside

A toxic poison that invades my thoughts
I cannot live with this beast inside
The time has come to end this nightmare
No matter what, the best will die
11. Evil Never Sleeps (live) (4:27)
Flashing lights the sound of rage
Anguish and Hate fill the air
A vicious circle a deadly maze
Enter the web if you dare

But there is no escape
For those who tempt fate
And you'll never know what
What Horror Awaits
A night on the Rack
A stab in the Back
No One is Safe

Evil Never Sleeps
Woe oh Evil Never Sleeps

A quiet Night, on an empty street
A madman walks out on his beat
A little girl in a pretty white dress
Behind her back the killing knife!

†But there is no escape for those who tempt fate
And you'll never know what horror awaits
A Night on the Rack
A stab in the Back
No One is safe
Evil Never Sleeps
woe woe Evil Never Sleeps
