THE TRIUMPH OF STEEL > LYRICS

Achilles, Agony & Ecstasy In Eight Parts [BACK]

HECTOR STORMS THE WALL

See My Chariot
Run To Your Ships
I'll Drive You Back To The Sea

You Came Here For Gold
The Wall Will Not Hold
This Day Was Promised To Me

The Gods Are My Shield
My Fate Has Been Sealed
Lightning And Javelins Fly

Soon Many Will Fall
We Are Storming The Wall
Stones Fall Snow From The Sky

We Will Pay With Our Glory
In The Fire Of Battle
Zeus Today Is Mine

Killing All In My Way
Like Sheep And Like Cattle
Smashing Skulls Of All Who Defy

I Spare Not The Hammer
I Spare Not The Sword
This Day Will Ring With My Name

None Have To Chase Me
Let He Who Will Face Me
Kill Me Or Die By The Sword


THE DEATH OF PATROCLUS

Oh Friend Of Mine
How To Say Goodbye
This Was Your Time
But The Armor You Wore Was Mine

I Will Not Rest
Until Hectors Blood Is Spilled
His Bones Will All Be Broken
Dragged Across The Field

This Dear Friend
Is How We’ll Say Goodbye
Until We Meet
In The Sky


HECTOR’S FINAL HOUR

Here Inside The Walls Of Troy
The Gods Weigh My Fate
From This Day Do I Abstain
To A Memory Of Hate

To Pay For All The Blood That Spilled
The Many Thousands I Did Kill
No Walls Can Contain
The Gods Almighty Will

I Hear The Silent Voices
I Cannot Hide
The Gods Leave No Choices
So We All Must Die

Oh Achilles
Let Thy Arrows Fly
Into The Wind
Where Eagles Cross The Sky

Today My Mortal Blood
Will Mix With Sand
It Was Foretold
I Will Die By Thy Hand

Into Hades
My Soul Descend


DEATH HECTOR'S REWARD

Cowards In The Grip Of Fear No Valor To Uphold
Cut Into The Earth With Honor Long Been Sold
For All Shall Come To Know Me As They Fall Unto Their Knees
Zeus The Thunderer Control My Destiny

When The Cards Of Life Were Dealt My Hand A Ruthless Fate
To Avenge And Bringeth Fury Hector Feel My Hate
A Bloodbath I Was Born To Bring By Birth I’m An Assassin
To Cut The Cord Of Life And Death Ties To Earth Unfasten

Blood And Fire Death And Hate
Your Body I Will Desecrate Dogs And Vultures Eat Your Flesh
The Hall Of Hades Waits
Kill

Hectors Blood Lies On The Battlefield His Body’s Mangled Wounds
The Gods Who Once Protected Him Are Now His Gods Of Doom
Like A Tower Standing Tall Steadfast In Direction
I Fall Upon You Bringing Death The Gods Give No Protection
Coward In The Grip Of Fear No Valor To Uphold
Cut Into The Earth With Honor Long Been Sold
For All Shall Come To Know Me As They Fall Unto Their Knees
Zeus The Thunderer
Control My Destiny

Blood And Fire Death And Hate
Your Body I Will Desecrate Dogs And Vultures Eat Your Flesh
The Hall Of Hades Waits
Die


THE GLORY OF ACHILLES

The Oath Of The Gods This Day Was Fulfilled
In The Heat Of The Battle Hector Was Killed
See Him Patroclus Down In The Dust
Rejoice In His Death My Symbol Of Trust

A Dozen Highborn Youths Have Been Killed
Cutting Their Throats Their Blood Was All Spilled
Their Bodies Set At The Foot Of Your Fire
With Oxen Sheep And Two Of Your Hounds

Your Funeral Pyre High Off The Ground
Hectors Body Dragged Three Times Around
I Will Carry The Torch To Your Funeral Pyre
I Will Ask Of The Wind To Send High Your Fire

Hectors Blood Will Not Be Washed From My Body
Until Your Body Is Burned
A Prophecy Spoken A Promise Fulfilled
More Blood Will Be Spilled More Will Be Killed

Ride The Dragon [BACK]

Demon’s Blood And Dragon Fire Falling On My Wings
Racing To The Battle In The Sky
Ancient Gods Are Calling Me I Hear Them When They Sing
Of All The Heroes Who Wait For Me To Die

Beneath A Cloak Of Magic I’ll Meet Them In The Air
I Am Invisible I Move Without A Sound
They Look But Cannot Find Me They Think That I’m Not There
With A Spell I Send Them Crashing To The Ground

Wait For Me Dragon We’ll Meet In The Sky
By Fire And Magic I Am Sworn
Hell Is Calling We Cannot Be Denied
Fly To The Blackness Of The Storm
We Must Die To Be Reborn

I Wear A Sacred Talisman I Make A Secret Sign
Now Welcome Me Into This Wicked Wind
On The Journey Of A Shaman A Dragon I Must Ride
The Gates Of Hell Are Open Let Me In

Rule In Hell Or Serve In Heaven Choose An Altar Or Throne
All Commandments And Laws Of Man Disown
Now Eat The Fruit Of Knowledge To One Ye Atone
Into The Fire With Your Soul

Wait For Me Dragon We’ll Meet In The Sky
By Fire And Magic I Am Sworn
Hell Is Calling We Cannot Be Denied
Fly To The Blackness Of The Storm
We Must Die To Be Reborn

Demon’s Blood And Dragon Fire Falling On My Wings
Racing To The Battle In The Sky
Ancient Gods Are Calling Me I Hear Them When They Sing
Of All The Heroes Who Wait For Me To Die

Beneath A Cloak Of Magic I’ll Meet Them In The Air
I Am Invisible I Move Without A Sound
They Look But Cannot Find Me They Think That I’m Not There
With A Spell I Send Them Crashing To The Ground

Wait For Me Dragon We’ll Meet In The Sky
By Fire And Magic I Am Sworn
Hell Is Calling We Cannot Be Denied
Fly To The Blackness Of The Storm
We Must Die To Be Reborn


Spirit Horse Of The Cherokee [BACK]

The Trail Of Tears Began For All The Cherokee
The White Men Came To Trade And Borrow
But Then They Would Not Leave
Some Of Us Were Taken By Boat And Died At Sea
Those Of Us Who Lived Were Sold To Slavery

We Welcomed Them As Brothers Knowing Nothing Of Their Greed
Born Hunters Not The Hunted As The White Man Hunts For Me
We Are Descendants Of The Animals We Live Among Them Free
Our Trail Of Tears Would End One Day At Wounded Knee

Great Spirit Thunder Birds Fly We Are Wild And Free
To Fight And Die By The Open Sky Spirit Horse Ride For Me

When We Do The Ghost Dance The Buffalo Will Return
Paint Ourselves For War Now Blood And Fire Burn
Great Spirit Makes Us Strong Take Us To The Sky
The Cherokee Are Brave We Are Not Afraid To Die

Great Spirit Thunder Birds Fly We Are Wild And Free
To Fight And Die By The Open Sky Spirit Horse Ride For Me

Red Cloud Black Hawk Sitting Bull
Crazy Horse Geronimo
Strong And Brave Warriors To The Grave

There Has Been Much Killing There Will Be Much More
The Medicine Man Is Dancing He’s Calling Us To War
Hatchets Sing With Pride Let The White Man Die

Great Spirit Thunder Birds Fly We Are Wild And Free
To Fight And Die By The Open Sky Spirit Horse Ride For Me


Burning [BACK]

We Have Come From The Ashes Of The Burning Away
Pouring Blood In The Fire On The Altar Of Pain
Led Into Temptation Now The Black Gods Align
Here There Is No Salvation And Your Blood Is My Wine

Here’s A World That Is Waiting Between The Living And The Dead
Here The Flesh And Its Pleasure Are Eternally Wed
All Is All For The Taking
For A Life Or A Lie
At The End Of The Breaking I’ll Be Watching You Die

Crawl To The Silence Renounce And Deny
The Stars And The Numbers Foretold Of This Time
To The Words And The Wisdom Too The Promise Of Lies
By Their Anger And Fury
The Strong Will Survive


The Power Of Thy Sword [BACK]

Lord Of Battle I Pray On Bended Knee Conquest By The Rising Sun
I’ll Wait For Thy Command With Flame And Blood At Hand
Glory And A Broken Sword

I’m The Master Of The World I Have No Fear Of Man Or Beast
Born Inside The Soul Of The World
Riding Hard Breaking Bone With Steel And Stone
Eternal Might I Was Born To Wield

Let Us Drink To The Battles We’ve Lived And We’ve Fought
Celebrate The Pain And Havoc We Have Wrought
Great Heroes Charge Into The Fight
From The North To The South In The Black Of Night

The Clash Of Honor Calls To Stand When Others Fall
Gods Of War Feel The Power Of My Sword

Drink To The Battles We’ve Lived And We’ve Fought
Celebrate The Pain And Havoc We Have Wrought
Great Heroes Charge Into The Fight
From The North To The South In The Black Of Night

Fierce Is My Blade Fierce Is My Hate
Born To Die In Battle I Laugh At My Fate
Now Pay In Blood When Your Blood Has Been Spilled
You’re Never Forgiven Death Is Fulfilled

The Clash Of Honor Calls To Stand When Others Fall
Gods Of War Feel The Power Of My Sword

The Clash Of Honor Calls
I Will Stand When Others Fall
Open Magic Doors
They Will Know The Power Of My Sword

There Is Blood On My Hands There Is Blood In My Eyes
With Blood In My Voice I Scream As You Die
Thirsting For Vengeance And Mounds Of The Slain
Shaking The Forest Onto The Plain

Fierce Is My Blade Fierce Is My Hate
Born To Die In Battle I Laugh At My Fate
Now Pay In Blood When Your Blood Has Been Spilled
You’re Never Forgiven
Death Is Fulfilled

The Clash Of Honor Calls
To Stand When Others Fall
Gods Of War Feel The Power Of My Sword
They Will Know The Power Of My Sword


The Demon's Whip [BACK]

Black Candles Slowly Burning White Fangs And Flashing Eyes
Hell’s Wind And Incantations Summon Living Fire
Darkest Forces And Your Demon’s Black Order Black King
The Cult That Serves The Living Accept This Offering

Black Candles Slowly Burning White Fangs And Flashing Eyes
Hell’s Wind And Incantations Summon Living Fire
As The Seven Steps Await Hear The Great Bell Toll
With A Dead Man’s Bones Conjure The Enemy Of The Soul

From The Misery And Sadness Of The Molten Seas Of Hell
Mystic Love And Mystic Symbols In Evil Dreams There Dwell
Darkest Forces And Your Demon’s Black Order Black King
The Cult That Serves The Living Accept This Offering

A Deadly Drink A Meal Of Hearts Now Sacrifice And Die
In Darkness And Destruction Behold The Evil Eye
And The Demon’s Whip

Armies Of The Gods Of Hell Ride Across The Astral Plane
Bearing Curses Of Destruction Sworn Beyond The Grave
Children Of The Darkness All Born But To Deceive
By The Ancient Code Of Evil Grant Not One Reprieve

In The Place Where Evil Dwells Death Can Live When All Life Dies
Wage Eternal War On Heaven Immortal Hate Below The Sky
Your Scripture And Your Sermons Are Leaves Borne On The Wind
To Heal The Unrepentant One Needs A Greater Sin

Night Winds Oblivion See My Dark Desire
Come Forth And Appear He Is Living Fire
Feel The Demon’s Whip

Armies Of The Gods Of Hell Ride Across The Astral Plane
Bearing Curses Of Destruction Sworn Beyond The Grave
Children Of The Darkness All Born But To Deceive
By The Ancient Code Of Evil Grant Not One Reprieve

In The Place Where Evil Dwells Death Can Live When All Life Dies
Wage Eternal War On Heaven Immortal Hate Below The Sky
Your Scripture And Your Sermons Are Leaves Borne On The Wind
To Heal The Unrepentant One Needs A Greater Sin
Feel The Demon's Whip


Master Of The Wind [BACK]

In The Silence Of The Darkness When All Are Fast Asleep
I Live Inside A Dream Calling To Your Spirit
As A Sail Calls The Wind Hear The Angels Sing

Far Beyond The Sun Across The Western Sky
Reach Into The Blackness Find A Silver Line
In A Voice I Whisper A Candle In The Night
We’ll Carry All Our Dreams In A Single Beam Of Light

Close Your Eyes Look Into The Dream
Winds Of Change Will Winds Of Fortune Bring

Fly Away To A Rainbow In The Sky
Gold Is At The End For Each Of Us To Find
There The Road Begins Where Another One Will End
Here The Four Winds Know Who Will Break And Who Will Bend
All To Be The Master Of The Wind

Falling Stars Now Light My Way
My Life Was Written On The Wind
Clouds Above Clouds Below
High Ascend The Dreams Within

When The Wind Fills The Sky The Clouds Will Move Aside
And There Will Be The Road To All Our Dreams
And For Any Day That Stings Two Better Days It Brings
Nothing Is As Bad As It Seems

Close Your Eyes Look Into The Dream
Winds Of Change Will Winds Of Fortune Bring

Fly Away To A Rainbow In The Sky
Gold Is At The End For Each Of Us To Find
There The Road Begins Where Another One Will End
Here The Four Winds Know Who Will Break And Who Will Bend
All To Be The Master Of The Wind
