Sword of Damocles

Album: Redeemer of Souls (2014)
  • Will you take the dare if it ever was placed
    There's danger to challenge the throne
    Deceivers will rise and weave their web of stealth
    Can you face them standing alone?

    When men lead by words that are false as they preach
    Fatality waits in the wings
    Surrounded by fools behind walls that are breached
    Beware of the jester that sings

    Stand tall rise up stay strong fighting your enemies
    Truth will find it's reward
    If you live and die by the sword

    The whispers can't hide when the tongues are let loose
    Then hiding the truth is absurd
    A stab in the back or taste of the noose
    Is when action speaks louder than words

    Stand tall rise up stay strong fighting your enemies
    Truth will find it's reward
    If you live and die by the sword

    Wield the spear of light
    Guard it with your life
    Wield the spear of light
    Guard it with your life
    Sword of Damocles, sword of Damocles

    Stand tall rise up stay strong fighting your enemies
    Truth will find it's reward
    If you live and die by the sword

    His truth will find its reward
    If you live and die by the swordWriter/s: GLENN RAYMOND TIPTON, RICHARD FAULKNER, ROBERT HALFORD
