"Dead Kings Rise" as written by Jerry Caiafa, Paul Caiafa, David Calabrese and Michael C. Emanuel....
Bound by battle scars
When the savages reigned
The lord of war
From his right hand man betrayed

Beneath the battle field
His murdered corpse they hide
Oh, curse from Hell
Avenge my death
Avenge the lies

Flesh they stole
But the soul is not begotten
Through the gates of Hell
I'll seize my throne

Feel my sword
Though the flesh be dead and rotten
Dead kings rise for vengeance owed

    General Commentno matter what it makes me think of greek mythology but its about a leader (king or god) that is betrayed by his followers and killed, kinda like ceasar being stayed in the back by his friend, he is then sent to hell where his soul is not begotten... where he will rise again and take vengeance on all who betrayed him
