Cruel ~ hot death starts to swirl
Among flaming hordes
Able to bleed open wounds
Raise thy twisted sword

Don't tell me you'll save my soul

Father burning unholy sounds
Sever the head and remove thy crown
Smashing the pious down

Damned is the fire in your blood

Cruel ~ slow death starts to swirl
Among flaming crowds
Able to burn open worlds
Upon hallowed ground

Don't tell me you'll save my soul

Father burning the cowards drown
Sever the head and remove the crown
Trample upon hallowed ground
Damned is the fire in your blood

Black wings of destiny
You'll fall into the void
Forever in a perfect hell
Torture enslaves this world

Scriptur lies and prophecies
The curse of woe shall come true...

The fiend with many heads
Soon shall wear the golden crown
Blasphemer from hell
Wicked unholy one

Free will is smothered
For whom does the bell toll?
Kneel before the antichrist
Dark vision, dark dreams...

World lit by hellish flames
Hail to the chosen one
Unleash!
The beast!
Destroy!

    General CommentMy mom and I was listening to this song, as well as looking at the lyrics. We both agreed that it highly reminds us of the age of the Crusades way back in old English. They were all blood-thirsty barbarians, and they were doing this for a "Pope", as well as, like Weird Al would say, "Scoring points for the afterlife". So they would brutally kill anything that moved that wasn't in their armor, and think after winning the battles for the Pope, they'd go to Heaven. But it was all, as this song explains, pretty much unholy. A pope who's position wasn't one of good, not at all. It's a great song if you like black/goth metal.
