"Desert Rain" as written by and David H Lanz....
The sympathy in my mind is growing cold
Life is like the burning sand so I'm told
The time is coming near when solitude appears
Take the chains of oppression away

Through the sands of time I'm marching on
The blistering rays of hate strengthen me
The violent mass has shown my destiny
Does all of this justify the rage inside

The desert rain is changing me
It's called on me to rise

A world of hate and malice
Yes, that's the way it seems
The hour glass is running out
The serpent rides with me

We shall rise and conquer
Crushing all that's weak
All that's light is burning out
The serpent rides with me

    General CommentOne of Iced Earth's greatest songs, starts with an awesome(and fun to play) guitar solo, and builds into beautiful lyrics. Follows the Stormrider through the desert on his journey.

    General CommentStormy rallies the natives around him, to "Take the chains of oppression away." He uses them as his army to go back and conquer his native land.
