I travel a dusty old road
And carry on in ultimate terror
The torture will grow
While infinity's lost
The lunatic fears, the unknown

Into the fire
Curse me
Unknown
Into the fire
Everything is gone

Did I miss the point
Or fail to see
That I'm lost
Cause I am chosen

Crush another tower
Grind the universe
I'll tear it into pieces
Mourn forevermore
And here I

Cry for Tanelorn
Still I fear their voices
Cry for Tanelorn
No more fear, no voices
Cry for Tanelorn
Into the void, this journey ends
I cry for Tanelorn
The dawn comes crashing down
Into the void

My locked up asylum
Don't turn your back
On your prodigal son
When terror is raging
Still my hate will grow

Here on my own
I've built a pyre
Oh, fire
Here on my own
I've wasted life
So weak

A dark sword
A black soul
My soulmate gets near

Deceiver
Deceiver

I'm banned from the island
Refuse me, deny me
I'm pale and I'm weak
Now I don't belong here anymore

Cry for Tanelorn
Still I fear their voices
Cry for Tanelorn
No more fear, no voices
Cry for Tanelorn
Into the void, this journey ends
I cry for Tanelorn
The dawn comes crashing down
Into the void

The trouble of many I've seen
It's coming to an end
Here's my last stand
The torture at last
Will be gone with the past
Infinity, where will I go?

Into the fire
Curse me
In war
Into the fire
Everything is gone

It's your blood I desire
The last soul I require
Right after all the damage will be done

And here I

Cry for Tanelorn
Still I fear their voices
Cry for Tanelorn
No more fear, no voices
Cry for Tanelorn
Into the void, this journey ends
I cry for Tanelorn
The dawn comes crashing down
Into the void

Sormbringer
All hail
Stormbringer

    General CommentLike most of the songs on this album, it's about a famous fantasy series, in this case Michael Moorcock's Elric of Melnibone series, about an angsty albino emperor who wields Stormbringer, a demonic sword that provides him incredible strength by devouring the souls of people it hits.

    When the lyrics refer to "A dark sword / A black soul / My soulmate gets near /
    Deceiver / Deceiver" and "It's your blood I desire / The last soul I require / Right after all the damage will be done" it's probably talking about how the sword eventually betrays and kills him, as well as everyone he loves.
