Killers & Kings

Album: Bloodstone & Diamonds (2014)
  • Dark lady read me the future
    The ancient verse hidden away
    I turn from the ever-gray, and

    Tarot cards keep us enraptured
    Open mind become the sage
    Let this unlock the cage

    Ancient power
    Darkest hour
    Open your third eye and you'll see

    (Killers and kings)
    Inheritors of Earth
    (Killers and kings)
    From death there comes rebirth
    And as an army we will sing
    A diamond bears our ring
    Killers and kings

    Look to Earth, summon the master
    Awake the human living inside
    Ecclessiasticide

    The hangman gives into temperance
    The sun shines over the fool
    High priestess, spreads her rule

    Death and rebirth
    Decay and mirth
    Open your third eye and you'll see

    (Killers and kings)
    Inheritors of Earth
    (Killers and kings)
    From death there comes rebirth
    And as an army we will sing
    A diamond bears our ring
    Killers and kings

    The diamond bears our ring
    Yeah
    Oh

    The king of pentacles is here
    Strength and fortitude help to push away the fear
    We stand atop the mountain with the hermit and the lamp
    As the lovers in the knight of swords give in to the damned

    What do The cards say?
    The prophecy remains
    The devil in the emperor could keep us locked in chains
    And the death card doesn't mean you die
    It means a change is coming that you simply can't deny

    Reborn
    Rebirth
    From death comes rebirth

    (Killers and kings)
    Inheritors of Earth
    (Killers and kings)
    From death there comes rebirth
    And as an army we will sing
    A diamond bears our ring
    Killers and kings

    (Killers and kings)
    Inheritors of Earth
    (Killers and kings)
    From death there comes rebirth
    And as an army we will sing
    A diamond bears our ring
