Now We Die

Album: Bloodstone & Diamonds (2014)
  • And with this now we die
    And with this now we die

    Standing at the edge of the world
    Uncertainty calling as the page unfurls
    Fortune, Heaven or Hell
    Shedding my body of this mortal shell

    Black steel and iron
    A Lion Heart is forged from these bones
    Fear not, the discontent you hide
    Awake from the slumber and define this time

    No fear to pay the price
    And with this now we die

    Ashes to ashes
    The ocean crashes
    Louder and louder it cries
    Over and over
    The sands wash over
    Facing, embracing the tides
    And with this now we die
    And with this now we die
    (And with this now we die)

    Screaming violence into the void
    Is anyone listening or is all destroyed?
    Fighting heaven and earth
    Saving your children from their pain and hurt

    Bloodstone and diamonds
    Nothing can break the strength of these stones
    Cast off the shackles of the past
    Live in the moment nothing ever lasts

    Now cross the bridge of sighs
    And with this now we die

    Ashes to ashes
    The ocean crashes
    Louder and louder it cries
    Over and over
    The sands wash over
    Facing, embracing the tides
    And with this now we die
    Are you ready to die?

    Standing at the edge of the world
    Standing at the edge of the world

    The damned are we
    Abused and beat,
    We're left for dead
    We raise our head
    For we are strong,
    And they are wrong
    So scream with me,
    I do believe!

    I need your help,
    For I have knelt
    Held fist at skies,
    And cried out, why?
    Your shoulder strength,
    It gives me length
    We lift ourselves,
    Together meld

    So take my hand,
    And don't look back
    And sing with me, let new life be,
    Old life goodbye,
    And now we die
    For we are one
    Forever young
    And with this now we die
    And with this now we die
    And with this now we die
    And with this now we die

    Are you ready?
