Circle of the Tyrants

Album: Cause of Death (1990)

  • After the battle is over
    And the sand's drunken the blood
    All what there remains
    Is the bitterness of delusion

    The immortality of the Gods
    Sits at their side
    As they leave the walls behind
    To reach the jewels gleam

    The days have come
    When the steel will rule
    And upon his head
    A crown of gold

    Your hand wields the might
    The tyrant's the precursor
    You carry the will
    As the morning is near

    I sing the ballads
    Of victory and defeat
    I hear the tales
    Of frozen mystery

    The new kingdoms rise
    By the circle of the tyrants
    In the land of darkness
    The warrior, that was me
    Grotesque glory
    None will (ever) see them fall
    And hunts and wars
    Are like everlasting shadows

    Where the winds cannot reach
    The tyrant's might was born
    And often I look back
    With tears in my eyes
    Grotesque glory
    None will (ever) see them fall
    And hunts and wars
    Are like everlasting shadows Writer/s: GABRIEL FISCHER THOMAS, THOMAS GABRIEL FISCHER
