"Even The Gods Must Die" as written by Karl E. Sanders, George Kollias and Dallas Toler Wade....
Invoked in stone of epic proportion
Was his temple of pillars, magnificent colossal
Humbling all who entered its sacred halls

Yet now fallen to decay and ruin
Its past grandeur
Obscured by the cruelties of time

The priests of the temple
Dead, all dead and fallen to dust
Their undying whispers of despair
Echo amongst sand strewn
Broken paving stones

Desolation, desolation, the end of days
The glory of the gods
Is put out like a reed torch in the water
The roof of the house of Amun is fallen

Even the gods must die
Even the gods must die
Even the gods must die
Even the gods must die

    General CommentNot a lot of Nile fans come here, huh. I'm a brand new Nile boy. *Welcomes self*

    The chord progressions at the beginning and pseudo-end of this song are rather strange and took me a while to get used to, but the whole Egyptian tribal ceremonial drums and guitars for the last 2.5 minutes is just amazing to listen to.

    The guitar solo speaks for itself, and I suppose that's what Karl is doing. I love it when bands let the music speak for itself, though obviously Nile is different than most bands since they're almost programmatic it seems, or more "informative" with their historical lyrics.

    I like this song : ) As for what it really means, I suppose its the "On the Beach" of Egypt, the end of their civilization and beliefs, ravaged by time and, though not specifically sung about, the coming of the new civilization: our civilization. Interesting that Nile would confirm this doom.
