Pure ambition burns in me
It's a beast, never to be tamed
And the only peace I can find
Is when I'm here with you
You are the ones that keep me high
You are the ones for which I'll die
Forever we will be
Standing tall, side by side
We're the children of the night

(chorus)
Blessed are you
Blessed am I
Children of the night

So this song is for all of you
By my side, through and through
We'll roam that world true and free
Feeding you the inner beast
You are the ones that keep me high
You are the ones for which I'll die
Forever we will be
Standing tall, side by side
We're children of the night

Blessed are you
Blessed am I
Children of the night

The storm we ride
Side by side
You keep me high
For you I'll die
Through the storm we ride

    General CommentIced Earth is honestly one of the best bands ever and they dont get the recognition they deserve...especially in north america. USA and Canada both have too many panzies with fans who listen to that pop shit that isnt really music...ICED EARTH RULES...im canadian by the way and dont mean to bash anyone but the truth is there

    General CommentNothing to be added. Period
    Iced Earth plays in the same league as all the true Heavy-Metal from Europe, which is quite astonishing these days - when you face that they're from the country of limp bizkit, papa roach and all the other casted-fake-New-Metal-Pop-Shit!
    (Don't get me wrong, folks. There are a lot of really great american Metal Bands, but most of them are products totally other Periods - for example, the US charts of the 80's were dominated so much by totally different shit, that the cool American trash metal had enough time to grow and develop independently, without getting mixed up with pseudo-charts-filth. But today, the're some guys in the Record Companies, who smelled a lot of money, found out what "the kids" like, and flooded the market (and our poor minds) with Kindergarten-Metal, Kindergarten-Punk, etc.. AND ITS COMIN' OVER TO EUROPE, FOR GOD'S SAKE... SOMEBODY STOP THIS!

    General CommentNot only did Iced Earth give us a song, they made a whole album dedicated to our country yet we dont care.. they are one of the most generous bands look at most music people today especially rappers, they hate their fans. I wish everyone like Iced earth they are the most underrated band in the world.

    General CommentIced Earth is by far the best American metal band ever. I really don't see where talent comes from to get you to smash on your symbols to ruin a double kick and to scream like an idiot. A real band has passion and emotion that show through vocals and lyrics, and talent that shows through in the music. American metal and thrash don't have that. Iced Earth does. I'm not surprised they're such good friends with Blind Guardian (another REAL band) considering this. I would kill to have seen them tour together back in the day.
