"The Promise" as written by and Christoph/kuschnerus Siemons....
He said: Just sign your name across the dotted line and take advantage of the goods I have to offer
It won’t cost you much just a single drop of blood and I’ll hand you the things you have long been wishing for
It’s an easy way to choose, what do you have to lose ?

Will I fall ?
Opulentiam aeternam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand tall ?
Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem
Will I fall ?
Venustatem infinitam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand or fall ?
Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem

Should I sign and end this lifelong string of broken dreams of failure, shattered hopes, of trials and tribulations ?
It won’t cost a thing all the world will hear me sing and I’d have all the riches, the fame and everything
It’s an easy way to choose, what do I have to lose ?

Will I fall ?
Opulentiam aeternam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand tall ?
Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem
Will I fall ?
Venustatem infinitam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand or fall ?
Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem

Should I sign and blindly dance along the piper’s tune or should I rather trust my inner voice to guide me ?
I don’t own a lot but I still got one last shot so do I need to believe in a promise and its seed ?
Am I willing to choose when it’s myself I could lose ?

Will I fall ?
Opulentiam aeternam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand tall ?
Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem
Will I fall ?
Venustatem infinitam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand or fall ?
Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem

    General CommentAamzing song. Hard to believe this band isn't so popular. Love the Latin chorus, it really makes the song even better. This song is obvously about deciding to make a deal with the devil or not.
