Cannons pound into the night
Angels soar into the sky
The battle rages on
Deliverance unholy one

The seeds of hate fly tonight
Good and evil light the sky
Another vision from inside
I know it's wrong I can't deny

For seven years I have reigned
In this damned and desolate hell
Now I've lived the masters vengeance
It saved me from myself

We paint the sky with blood tonight
Setting free the damned to fight
The whore of Babylon is here
The end of the storm is near

Chorus:
Pure evil
Feel the pain from the jackals wrath
Pure evil
Dance in flames for the final quest

Hear the ghost of violence
Fear the God of detriment

The land on earth is soaked with blood
Hear the screams of the helpless ones
Axes yield and daggers fly
Ripping through all flesh in sight

We paint the sky with blood tonight
Setting free the damned to fight
The whore of Babylon is here
The end of the storm is near

Repeat chorus

    General CommentActually, whats sad is people who take these songs (which are just stories) as the actual beleifs of the band. ACTUALLY, this song is from the concept album Night Of The StormRider. this song is about the Stormrider brigning down the apocalypse and whatnot.

    General CommentIt's sad really... People like this think the battle is theirs... Too bad its already prophesied... The battle is one and the battle is the Lord God Almighty's. The God of Abraham, Isacc, and Jacob... The I AM that I AM!!!
