Black Banners in Flames Lyrics
Deep in the mountains of the once summer lands
Where fierce Capricorn display their horns in defiance
Where ancient fires still burn in their ancient shrines

Veneration in the shade of seven towers
Devote worship of the peacock-feathered angel
Dark traditions survive the woes of time
Fallen pride bestowing wisdom on mankind
Prime angel who bows before no lord
Obscure whispers under many conquering crowns
Semblance of Shaitan traced to ancient heresies

Proselytism on the rise
Extermination looms overhead
Desecration of the sacred shrines
And decapitators wield their blunted blades
Black banners rise
Religious genocide
Black banners burning
Yet the angel stands upright

Banners in black
Banners in flames
These banners burn
Banners aflame

Mass extermination, Neo-Caliphate conversion
Delivery to slavery and death
Monotheist aberration, rabid extremism
True interpretation of the book
Merciless persecution, thousands driven from their homes
Sanctuary they find not
Thousands being captured, thousands being slaughtered
Yet still the flame carries on

Banners in black
Banners in flames
These banners burn
Banners aflame
Banners in black
Banners in flames
These banners burn
Banners aflame

Ceaseless barbarism, endless antagonism
For the building of the martyr state
Arrogant expansion through warfare inhumane
These banners cannot hold the storm
Obscure whispers under many conquering crowns
Semblance of Sheitan traced to heresies primeval
Whose flame still burn while zealot is destroyed
Visions lie in shatters, the prophet's dreams in tears
