The castle is lit with candles and torches
The carriages and the nobles arrive in the front
The smell of splendor and decadence
And nobody can foresee.

The masters and the mistresses are walking through the halls
They're smiling, laughing, and showing that they're tall.
They don't recognize that we're waiting there
And just nobody can foresee

This is the last night of the kings

(Chorus)

We are the folk
And we have the right
To stand up and to fight
For an independent life.
We are the force
We are the might
And we will stand up
For an independent life.

The ball has begun and we're closing our trap
Inwardly we're gathering ourselves
While the dance comes to higher pace
Still nobody can foresee

Join in the circle and black robes are donned
Unsheathing our swords and get ready to dance
Our hearts are filled with the will to survive
In the last night of their lives

It's a murderous, murderous ballnight

(Chorus)

We are heroes, heroes of the night.
We are ready to live forevermore
Our gods lead us through this fight
Ah-aha-ah-ah
We are one and all on our way

(Chorus)

    My InterpretationLyrically, this song (as well as The Mission) seem to have been inspired by the writings of Ayn Rand. Is there any chance that these guys have read her works? Because that would just make them that much more awesome than they already are...
