"Black City - Black Fire" as written by and Keith Bemrose....
When I see all that's been
Forgiveness was my greatest sin
So I took a knife to my pity
To the people in black city

Fire! Black fire!
Fire! Black fire!
Fire! Black fire!
Fire! Black fire!

Truth chooses the strangest words
Not the tongue of the common herd
So take a blade let it bleed
Fuck the people in black city!

Fire! Black fire!
Fire! Black fire!
Fire! Black fire!
Fire! Black fire!

I was a brazen prince and cold
Now a king on an oaken throne
These dark ages mean nothing to me
For I have forsaken black city

Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees

So never bow to any gods
Tame wolves are nothing but dogs
So take a blade let it bleed
To the people in black city

    Truly amazing, a mindblowing line from a mindblowing song by a mindblowing band. Everything from Destroyer 666 is pure gold. They are a standard, if you like Destroyer 666, then you're Metal, if you don't, then you're not, simple as that.

    One of my favorite lines in music, these are really excellent lyrics. I wish I knew what they are refering to by "black city".

    General CommentThis song is AWESOME!!! I may be just an ordinary American christian dude, but this song, and Detroyer 666 as a band, are too fucking good to ignore. I believe in god and go to church, and don't take the lyrics seriously, but this band's guitar work, vocals, and drumming are really awesome. Haven't the foggiest what the song's about though, probably something Satanic.
