Down the plains, come hell riders
Blood of ice and hissing breath
Consumed by lust, into battle
Staring down the eyes of death

Skies of red-winged thunder
Breathing lightning fire
Invaders, light slayers
Cut down the fiends and betrayers
Dark destroyers, can't avoid or deny us

War hammer of the Gods
Bring down the Walls of Babylon

Legions of lies, beating down the lamb
Wings of war, they pulverize
Wrath is my name, feel the hatred
Hurling defiance toward the skies

Skies of red-winged thunder
Breathing lightning fire
Flesh churning, blood burning
The gears of war ever turning with conviction
Malediction is king

War hammer of the Gods
Bring down the Walls of Babylon

So here I stand, beyond apocalypse
God of pain, in lethal stealth
Casualty of pride, I will never be denied
A lord of war, at war with myself

Skies of red-winged thunder
Breathing lightning fire
Earth shaking, bones breaking
The hand of fate dominating
One by one, the stars are falling

War hammer of the Gods
Bring down the Walls of Babylon

    General CommentThis song is, once again, Satan speaking about the apocolypse/the rise of evil in the end times in his last battle with God

    General CommentQuite possibly the greatest song on the album. The instrumental intro is a masterpiece, and the chorus choir effects are great.

    General Commentthese lyrics are horribly wrong and make no sense who ever wrote them here needs to do some better research or just not post again...

    General CommentDown the place, come hell riders
    Blood on ice resign breath
    Consumed by this lust into battle
    Staring down the lies of dead

    Skies are mad with thunder
    With the lightning fire

    Invaders
    Like Slayers
    Calm down the freedom betrayers
    Dark destroyer
    Can't avoid or deny us

    Forever on the dust
    Bring down the walls of Babylon

    Legions of lights
    Beating down the Ma'am
    Wings of war they pulverize
    Wrath this my life
    Feel the hatred

    Crawling defying store the skies

    Skies are mad with thunder
    With the lightning fire

    Flesh tearing
    Blood pouring
    The veils of one are returning
    With conviction now addiction is king

    Forever on the dust
    Bring down the walls of Babylon

    So you'll right step
    Beyond the populous
    God of Pain
    In evil still

    Casualty is a pride
    I will never be a lord
    A lord of war and war with myself

    Skies are mad with thunder
    With the lightning fire

    Earth shaken
    Outbreaken
    The hands of fates annulated
    One by one the stars are falling

    Forever on the dust
    Bring down the walls of Babylon

    General CommentI like this song a little but I can't help but think that this would've been better off if done by a band like Therion
