Murder I am, you know it was me I was the one, that you didn't see I was the cut, down to your bone I put you there under that stone
I, I am the blade I am the dream of the brave I, I am the knife I bring grief to your wife I, I am the sword I am the word of the Lord
Do what you will, I bring you the edge I am the one to sever your head I cut so deep, I can cut straight It all depends on the move you make
I, I am the blade I am the promise unmade I, I am the knife I bring death to your life I, I am the ax To stop you dead in your tracks I, I am the sword I bring the fear of the Lord
Centuries pass, dust in the wind I shall remain, shining in sin The metal I am, the iron you feel The song of the dead, the chorus of steel
I, I am the blade I break the oath that you made I, I am the mace I am the blow in the face I, I am the ax To cut down heroes like rats I, I am the sword I do the work of the Lord
