Kingdom Of The Worm

Album: Kiss Of Death (2006)
  • You remember, you remember me, yes,
    I remember what we are, I remember only scars,
    I remember only stars, I remember hell and mother,
    I have seen the eye of god, youth trust gone forever.

    See only the master, risen, risen,
    After all the silence, all of him laughing
    After all the strangers, beaten, driven,
    Try to place all things, in a certain rhythm
    Do as the book told you see the pages torn,
    Make the spell upon them, in human form,
    So we come to call it, the great and awesome dance,
    Do you see before you, the kingdom of romance.

    You remember, you remember his face,
    You remember what I am, I remember only weeping,
    I remember only sleeping, I remember tearing flesh,
    I can only taste the devil, your tears when you cry,

    Wasted with the children, singing just a hymn,
    You can hear them only, crying, crying,
    After all the horses gallop to fathom,
    Try to fell under you, spine of the dragon,
    Do as you consider, writhe and spin alarm,
    Spell tricky magic, nails for your savior,
    So we bravely gather, though we moan with dread,
    Do you see before you, the kingdom of the dead.

    Can I remember, I remember you, no,
    Can I remember gold, I remember silver eyes,
    I remember silver skies, I remember awesome pain
    I can hear the horse in darkness, only he dreams of glory.

    Standing at the edge of all, looking down at last,
    Can you see the others, running, running,
    All the horses burning, sinking, dying,
    Do you feel destiny or are you lying,
    Do what you were made for, all must endure,
    Soon the door closes, for good or evil,
    Are you the ice queen or do you want to burn,
    Here see before you, the kingdom of the worm

    Kingdom of romance...kingdom of the dead...
    Kingdom of the worm...all men must suffer... Writer/s: Ian Fraser Kilmister, Micael Kiriakos Delaoglou, Philip Anthony Campbell
