Through the flames I watch
As you plead on your knees
The reaper awaits

The ride that you take
Through the lake, lake of flames
Will decide your fate

Was all of it worth eternal pain
The path you chose to live in vain
The river Styx is calling your number
The hot winds of Hell breathe your name

Bridge

On the night that it came to me
It was like nothing I'd ever seen
A vision darker than death itself
A violent cloud straight from the depths of hell
And that's when I saw my destiny
As it approached I was frozen still
I couldn't move, couldn't scream for help
Out of the darkness it reached for me
And that's when it planted the evil seed
And that's when I saw my destiny

Chorus

Travel in Stygian
The damned scream my name
Travel in Stygian
I can't repent it's too late
Travel in Stygian
Hot winds blow upon me
Travel in Stygian
No remorse it's too late

Bridge

The henchman awaits you
Yes that's right, step aboard
We have a very long journey
You owe us
You got what you wanted
In your mortal life
Now your soul is in our grasp
It's time

Riding on the hot winds of hell
Traveling down in the ship of pain
I chose this fate no turning back
The river Styx has called for me.

    General CommentStormrider destroyed the entire world so ide think hed be going to the ninth plain of hell for that one.

    Judas and Stormrider screaming here in agony

    General CommentMy fav Iced Earth song - very well written and pretty deep lyrics. Great vocals (Greely was the best) and the piano outro really sets the mood to the end of the stormrider

    General CommentStormrider thought he wouldn't wake up from death, but, sadly for him, he does. He must answer for every crime he ever commited. He must spend the rest of eternity in Hell.

    Arm:
    He wouldn't go the the ninth plain, he didn't betray anyone.
    Seventh plain, for violence towards others. Probably totally submerged in the blood.

    General CommentStyx is the river of underworld, but it also assotiated with Nilus. Stygia seems to be Egypt.
