What do I see
On the icy plains
The desolate one
It's my terrain
The wind it blows cold
Howling my name
I am the king
The king of this waste
Can't you see this barren land
Lain to waste
Ravaged, scorched, yet frozen
From your neglect
I am the formless one
I came to save
You are the chosen ones
You'll be my slaves
I stand on the glacier
Above it all
Watching them crumble
Watching them crawl
Iced Earth has risen
Nature will fall
Can you feel the madness here
Drawing you all too near
Earth and water, fire and air
Save yourselves from despair
We are together now
Crush the cowards, do it now
End the light, end the one
We have come to save
the young ones
So on an on
The story goes
Destroying yourselves
The pain it shows

    General Commentyou got wrong/missed out a couple of things, should be "nature will fall, death and destruction, mark them or fall" and "earth and fire, water and air"

    General CommentSeems on the surface to be some sort of demon or spirit or creature or something claiming control of the earth after a nuclear war. But that seems just a little off.

    General CommentThe song is taken from Spawn but in concert they describe the song as a love story over someone who sold there sole to be with the one they loved.
