I Am The Sword

  • 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 Writer/s: IAN FRASER KILMISTER, MICHAEL KIRIAKOS DELAOGLOU, MICHAEL RICHARD BURSTON, PHILIP ANTHONY CAMPBELL
