"Circle Of The Tyrants" as written by and Thomas Gabriel Fischer....
After the battle is over
And the sands drunken the blood
All what there remains
Is the bitterness of delusion

Circle of the tyrants

The immortality of the gods
Sits at their side
As they leave the walls behind
To reach the jewel's gleam

Circle of the tyrants

The days have come
When the steel will rule
And upon his head
A crown of gold

Your hand wields the might
The tyrant's the precursor
You carry the will
As the morning is near

I sing the ballads
Of victory and defeat
I hear the tales
Of frozen mystery

Your hand wields the might
The tyrant's the precursor
You carry the will
As the morning is near

The new kingdoms rise
By the circle of the tyrants
In the land of darkness
The warrior that was me
Grotesque glory
None will ever see them fall
And hunts and wars
Are like everlasting shadows

Where the winds cannot reach
The tyrant's might was born
And often I look back
With tears in my eyes
Grotesque glory
None will ever see them fall
And hunts and wars
Are like everlasting shadows

    General CommentI think this is about a soldier who realises the madness in killing and fighting on command from the politicians and head honchos and flees the country.

    General CommentA few bands do covers of this masterpiece.
    The two bands I recommend, if you are into them:
    Opeth
    Obituary
    two 'O' bands doing great job of covering the song.

    Can anyone post "Ground" lyrics. Its a new one by them, but Tom says in chorus, "Oh god, why have you forsaken me"
    I want to know lyrics!
