Brandish the hardblade, tempered in the blood of fallen foes I will ride again To the fountain To the blackened stones Because I remember, an oath made when we both were young The moment I land is the moment he sends the storm Cleaving through the night, like thunder, hooves will split the ground I will ride again To the fountain To the blackened stones Because I remember an oath made when we both were young The moment I land is the moment he sends the storm my way Red demonic eyes The wild ripping claw In the glare of my steel I see the face of a god In the glare of my steel Brandish the ravening blade, sharpened on the bones of fallen foes I have rode again On their ashes On their broken forms Because I remember an oath made when we both were young The moment I land is the moment they send the storm my way Red demonic eyes The wild ripping claw In the glare of my steel I see the face of a god In the glare of my steel

At dawn we strike Rend mail and flesh Stack the slain, climb the gate, burn the altar down And the acolytes watch their gods refuse their cries Their eyes of fear, holding trembling swords The smoke reveals the gathered gods Uncanny shapes above the ashes The smoke reveals the gathered gods Their favor won by slavish pawns A city turned pyre, by ravening iron Thousands of swords, no one can take them from me Protected by fire, the Armor of Ire Thousands of swords no one can take them from me The dim fire light betrays their numbers Brands aflame, the din of song, they revel before war And the sacrifice, for the gain of empire, screams in pain with her eyes of fear, is bound upon the stave The smoke reveals the gathered gods Uncanny shapes above the ashes The smoke reveals the gathered gods Their favor lost by slavish pawns A city turned pyre, by ravening iron Thousands of swords, no one can take them from me Protected by fire, the Armor of Ire Thousands of swords no one can take them from me

Skullseeker 04:13
Like Vagar, howling to meet the line in shieldless battle War-lust complete A man or a wolf howls from the oaks and now the mareships land Bring swords to your coast He was Skullseeker Taking your life Into the ruck, nothing to feel No armor, both hands 'round the haft of his steel In his lands his honor increased But to him and his foes he is only a beast He was Skullseeker Taking your life Upon the field you meet your fate The horned man A steel resolve Slain bodies lay piled Her hilt prepares the goal The bosom awaits him now He was Skullseeker Taking your life

I have grown fond of my burdens They serve to remind me of all I have lost The freedom to die and live mortal Life's fated, and I offer my guard The spectre of Death rides unheeded A legion unnumbered and we are but four His army would claim every mortal But my steel was old when Death was young To long has he mocked as he's taken A seer, a pureblood and I, Ire's slave Have called down the ones who'll bring worse than death could dream, and He'll face it at last The riders of hell had my blessing The vainglory of kings and the crimes of the poor Have spread like a plague beyond healing They are mine to watch, for them, a Lord! For my life I'll keep my failing light 'til the dust has vanished I will offer my guard For my price I'll roam my wretched world 'til the end of all time I will serve as thine guard The parting of clouds mark their arrival and the beating of hooves cannot shake my repose My gods have sent those behind Vleneng To bring fear to Death and place me in his throne The crowning is brief and well-hidden For a Guardian's Birth is not one they should see A procession of silent, grim, demons march back into their secret keep For my life I'll keep my failing light 'til the dust has vanished I will offer my guard For my price I'll roam my wretched world 'til the end of all time I will serve as thine guard Blind as they are, I am their Law Their fate is mine to save as I might Forsaking my guild, forgetting my past Leaving my home and crossing the wall Silently throned and becoming The All Unseen and unheard is the dawn of my rule

"A man that flies from his fear may find he has only taken a short cut to meet it." - J.R.R. Tolkien I wear the chains of a likely subject You, like a fool, let me into your keep And now blood has dried on the blade of my sword The chains on my back are gone I gain the wall, take the life from your guardian Use it's claw, take the head from your king And now blood has dried on the blade of my sword I set fire the Inner Hall The keep my goal Their army fears the battle The seas will roll The mountains shield the battle Flames lick from your once great fortress Cut down with ease all your ill-trained men Now blood has dried on the blade of my sword You ran from the fight and lost The keep my goal Their army fears the battle The seas will roll The mountains shield the battle Command nothing as the chaos binds you Your force running as they follow your lead Your bards will sing of your deeds and fortress they'll sing it’s name call it Coward's Keep

Upon a Roman cross there hangs a man I cannot save For this, Rome will have to pay I must find the door to ebon depths where they degenerate There's nothing I would spare to see Rome howl in pain Eyes like golden stars shining in the dark In Dagon's Barrow I will take the stone they must obey The King of Picts has forced his claim I must call my forces 'cross the isle they will join the fray I swear by nameless ones and black gods of R'lyeh Worms of the Earth I raise The fallen ancient race Atla's price, a night With a king she'll lie In the morning light I can see her xanthous eyes... Under the fallen tower they burrowed all the earth away Look how Rome has come to pay I must face this thing I've done, the broken look on Titus' face With pity and with mercy, I draw my blade Worms of the Earth I raised The fallen ancient race

Steer north until you see Kynara's shores and the Banners of Arhai Row right into the strand of Arginor In the fray I'll look for you A man I knew Now you see I must repay Pray your gods But know there is one less for you I wear It's blood upon my blade The Bane of the Arhai Slay brethren, you've earned this feast so slake your sword on the Banners of Arhai Run right into their ranks on the crimson shore In the fray I'll look for you a man I knew Now you see I must repay Pray your gods But know there is one less for you I wear It's blood upon my blade The Bane of the Arhai Their force arrayed in lines on red sand I can see their fires Arhai, the demon-priests of Ill-Nitaar, sorcery has weakened you The Banners of Arhai In the sky, the lesser gods of Ill-Nitaar, eternity has poisoned you The Banners of Arhai Now die!
