How the Story Ends

  • Far off on the horizon you can barely see their torches
    But rest assured they're out there and they're coming
    If you listen, the sound is growing nearer of infantry
    Marching out a hypnotizing rhythm

    Destroying every town, light it up and burn it down
    You may not like it now, but this is how the story ends

    Above the ring of clashing steel, they raise flags of war
    A sign to all the warriors who cannot hear
    Amidst smoke of cannonballs, they bang the drums of death
    Pound a cadence out for those who cannot see

    Destroying every town, light it up and burn it down
    You may not like it now, but this is how the story ends
    Poison the wells and scorch the earth, everything's slashed and burnt
    You may not like it now, but this is how the story ends

    Destroying every town, light it up and burn it down
    You may not like it now, but this is how the story ends
    Poison the wells and scorch the earth, everything's slashed and burnt
    You may not like it now, but this is how the story ends Writer/s: DAVE MUSTAINE
