Black Hearts Now Reign

Album: The Oncoming Storm (2004)
  • Take
    Rob this world of resource
    Burn the oil for fortune
    Stealing from our savior
    In quest of power

    Sealed
    Our fate is catastrophic
    The coming days of failure
    Aborting evolution
    In quest of power

    Take all you want and these bloody skies will reign
    Take what's hers and these blood skies will reign
    Oh mother close your eyes

    These bloody skies will reign
    Dear savior brace your heart
    These bloody skies will reign

    Blackened lives
    Sunsless skies
    Our bare world weeps
    Black hearts how reign
    Blasphemous corruption
    Controlling progression
    Our bare world weeps
    Black hearts now reign

    In solitude a lonely voice is heard
    This future of despair is easy to avoid
    This future of despair is easy to avoid
    Lies strangle this world hope
    In quest of power Writer/s: JOHN MAGGARD, KEN SUSI, MIKE JUSTIAN, PAUL MCGRATH, TREVOR PHIPPS
