  • Brace yourself, my brother
    I have breaking news
    The noise machines lie still tonight
    There's no time to lose
    No more threats of bloodshed
    No more pain and fear
    Ravenskill will brave the storm
    Our victory is near

    You are acting very strange
    Nervous and on edge
    I will be a voice for change
    Brother, give me strength

    Burning rose, secrets sold
    Moment of betrayal
    Kiss of death, blood revenge
    Moment of betrayal

    I have sworn to live and die
    By the warrior's code
    Never leave a man behind
    May god redeem my soul
    I will give you what you need
    My brother for my son
    Guilt and shame will burden me
    Until my days are done

    Meet me tonight where the stars touch the sky
    He'll be alone there with nowhere to hide

    Burning rose, secrets sold
    Moment of betrayal
    Kiss of death, blood revenge
    Moment of betrayal

    He will be defenseless
    I'll look on, say I put up a fight
    There will be no witness
    They will call you a hero tonight

    Burning rose, secrets sold
    Moment of betrayal
    Kiss of death, blood revenge
    Moment of betrayal
    Threats and lies, changing sides
    Moment of betrayal
    Risking all, savior's fall
