"Valley of the Kings" as written by John James Sykes and Anthony Philip Harford....
In a distant place in time a pharaoh wandered
In his mind he could see a kingdom
With this king they could not reason
Enslaved in the wish and the dream of a man who's planned their destiny
There is no way out, there can be no doubt
All he wants is his dream fulfilled and until the day
When the kingdom's built
There is no way out, there can be no doubt

Chorus
The blood will flow, a thousand souls plead for mercy
A thousand times over
You'll hear it on the wind, these sinners never sinned

Stone on stone they built till the day their life is over
They control with the whips and chains
They bequeath us with a life of pain
No way out of this place you gotta work until it's over
See the fire in the sky, in glory die
Cry if you must but die you will
The valley of the kings will still be built
See the fire in the sky, in glory die

Chorus
The blood will flow, a thousand souls plead for mercy
A thousand times over
You'll hear it on the wind, these sinners never sinned

The king looks on and sees his dream arising
One's grave will found in the end, his spirit's lost
But one will be saved
And with him he will take it all jewels and gold will guard his soul
Feel the kiss on the wind, and the blood on the sand
It was built with flesh and blood
It wasn't built by any God
Feel the kiss on the wind, and the blood on the sand

Chorus
The blood will flow, a thousand souls plead for mercy
A thousand times over
You'll hear it on the wind, these sinners never sinned

    Song Meaningi kind of feel like this is a reference to maybe the building of the pyramids it does have a middle eastern tent to it and it does say flesh and blood and hard work a lot. which well i watched a documentary on the building of the pyramids and it was a ton of human slavery and labor. people are people not just workers
