Empire of the Sands Lyrics

9. Empire of the Sands (6:27)
Fortress of steel I have acquired
behold, the chosen one born of fire
victorious, death has won, ruler of cruelty
vicious experiments, creating synthetic slaves
computer hypnosis, cerebral override

Inventing new weaponry
building defense systems
force fields in operation
erecting radar dishes

Empire Of The Sands
Empire Of The Sands

Mapping global surface regions
graphing seismic active areas
establishing aerial viewpoints
charting several outpost stations

Empire Of The Sands
Empire Of The Sands

Testing elements in the ozone
mining useful mineral layers
drilling deep into the core
seeking power from the earth

Building metal walls of armour
forging massive iron thresholds
circuits surround inner cavities
vector brain controlling all

Empire Of The Sands
Empire Of The Sands

computer summons ancient evil
forces beyond recognition
evoking Gods of Sumerian origin
deeply buried in the sands

Obeying the matrix
the tyrant commands
submissive controller
armies of the Empire
