An Angel's kiss now fallen Descending scarlet cuts the sky Faded names left on the wall Honor the fighting leave life to Die
Remembered is the sacrifice but No appraisal of blood still flowing Who were the leaders? What controlled the Killing Hand That caused this mouthing?
Lowered deep into the sea Being a waits to cleanse his soul Senses weakening time is still Motionless by stiffening cold
The wheels race back and Scorch his mind Traveling all to find the land Revelation warms a touch And now he will begin to Understand
Extended a view to yesterday Manifestation for none the same Walking amidst a frightening still No sound, no smoke, no scorching Flames
He is risen
Sipping his poison the raven sings Yet another to add more bodies Fallen King from below This one controls The Killing Hand that caused this Mourning
Is it all over?
[IV. Thorns] Evil genius this secret plan Mercy dealt with the losing hand Will he ever fall? Can he end it all? Our savior must make his stand
Only a Propher of years to come Wanting mortality I'm all alone He heard my voice It was my choice I've stopped the Killing Hand
When I go back again Will it be the same? I've stopped the cries But now they know my name
The sea is calling me My spirit must return As I get closer, Was it really worth What I have learned?
I'm in the valley And the saddened chimes I hear Race towards the wall to find One more name appears
No one is left now My one and only land I laugh at what I've done I am the Killing Hand
