"LINEAGE" ALBUM LYRICS

 

Eternal Oath

 

Invaders below

Ones that defiled our home

Silently pursued our prey

Foreign laws we can't obey!

 

Asking for courage

wisdom and more

Grant us your favour in war

You were there for our fathers

and fathers before in our

ancestor's tales of lore

 

Never to leave my post

I swore an Eternal Oath

Forced to stand my ground

I swore an Eternal Oath

 

Blood shall run

Men shall fall

Uphold the

eternal oath

 

Pay homage to death

Curse them 'til our final breath

Even if we fall tonight

our vengeance shall be had!

 

 

LAUGH OF THE TSAR

 

Many centuries ago when the tides of man were turning

There was a leader who ruled the land with an iron fist

They knew him only as the tsar and this is his tale

 

Now you will fear

wrath drawing near

you will cringe at the

Laugh of the tsar

 

all my armies marching forward

desecrating sacred lands

reaping spoils and taking riches

conquering with iron hands

Flee before the savage bear

he will tear into your flesh

 

I will conquer and you will feel my wrath

 

Now you will bow before me I am the tsar

 

Leader of the holy army

Torturing those who oppose

I will drown your helpless screams

Laugh of the Tsar

 

Crusading with a higher power

Seizing all my rightful lands

With the might of Bannered steel

Laugh of the Tsar

 

All will succumb to my reign

Bringing slavery and death

I'm the beast of bedtime stories

Stealing children in the night

I will rule this land forever

Never shall my legend die

 

I will conquer and you will feel my wrath

Now you will bow before me I am the tsar

 

I am the tsar

Kneel before me

I pass judgment

on all those I see

 

Laugh of the Tsar

Sounding in the night

Laugh of the Tsar

Following you everywhere

 

 

Barbarian

 

And there we stood survivors but we couldn't hold the pass

It was the year that the winter came far too early

with all our might we couldn't withstand the power of ice and snow

I once was a warrior king - barbarian

 

After our defeat we were forced to retreat

We said farewell to the land of our forefather

Now we march into a wasteland

past the ruins that once were our home

 

This is not the end

we will rise again

time will tell their fate

they have sown the seeds of hate

 

I am a warrior

I know what you've done

I will hunt you down

so you'll taste the steel of my retribution

 

 

Soldiers Lament

 

Marching under the banner of our lord

Gilded cage? are we a plundering horde

Town after town, greeted by fear

Lingering Knowledge, Judgement is near

 

Holy knights fighting for the cause

Die by the sword or live by the laws

Am I a sheep in a game of wolves?

 

Never read the book of man

Else wisdom you won't understand

Raiding through a foreign land

Guiding signs will fade in the sand

 

All alone and I must find a way

For the night is darkest before the break of day

These are my Lamentations

The night is darkest before the break of day

 

Endlessly on the Plight of war

Starving hounds, beaten to the core

Time after time I've questioned this fate?

 

Holy knights upholding the law

Believe us now or die with your flaw

Am I a wolf in the guise of a lamb?

 

 

LOREMASTER

 

Celestial bodies in the sky

Finally coming to align

Once every seven score

So its written in the book of lore

 

Raven song and the full moon

ancient scriptures come to life

The flames are always craving more

So its written in the book of lore

 

On Blackened Wings

A new prophecy

Tales of your strength

Have travelled to me

 

Raise up your blade

and pray to the flames

Sacrifice your lies tonight

 

Devouring your plight

Seeking eternal night

I've seen it all

This is your downfall

I am the one, I am the lore master

 

 

From the Winds of the north

To the fires in the south

Empire in the West

and the knowledge in the east

I've seen it all

I am the Loremaster

 

Forsaken words

and these ancient rites

Give me the lore

To see past the blight

 

Upon these pages

are spells of the old

Watch as your mind

begins to unfold

 

Annihilate yourself

Shed your mortal woes

I am the end

Hunted by your foes

I am the one, I am the lore master

 

I am your hope

Hunted by your foes

He is the one, he is the lore master

 

Enslaved to this work

Strength in these words

 

Seasons change and so can thee

But nobody knows this alchemy

I hold the secrets of ancient rites

Ritual wisdom on starless nights

They will never see

Continuing to lead the blind

 

Loremaster II

 

Waiting, here I lie

When the world never hears your cry

A voice of reason amongst the fray

Leave it to death and decay

 

For I am the one

Wisdom's Son

 

This young world will always turn

and spin into oblivion

I am the keeper of the keys

I can sustain these memories

You may fall a thousand times

but still the longings there

 

Singing the songs of the dead one

Living the life of the failed one

Viewing the eyes of the blind man

Release your chains

 

Bound by rage or free to decide?

The void is calling and you cannot h ide

When will you realize?

Or do you wait til the stars align

 

Mark my words lest you will burn

Obliteration if you don't learn

Your homeland razed, all has been lost

Vengeance sought no matter the cost?

Search your soul, release your mind

and see the longing there

 

the world greets you like a blossom

in Springtime when life s before you

As we age, summer burns us

Those lessons never leave

In the autumn, wisdom finds us

Like an old friend we've always known

but Death takes us like the chill of winter

 

 

The seasons always age us

the reaper awaits beckoning

The sands of time are falling

do you prepare for judgment?

Now is the time to find balance

Pay no heed to the hand you were dealt

 

The Sacrifice

 

My days are numbered in this world

but a new day is born

to give me the hope to see the light

Break on my enemies

as they approach their death

Give me the strength

join me now and

 

burn those bastards where they stand

They will perish in our sacred land

and hell will welcome them

join me now and

 

fight by my side and I will honour your sacrifice

with bloodshed and death

join me now and give up your life

 

My mind is a barren plain

My heart pumps full of steel

I clench this iron sword

To disembowel my foes

 

I come full charge ahead

Breaking through their defence

Eyes locked upon their souls

Into hell they go

 

The fields are burning

A red light on this merciless sky

Brave men have fallen

Is this the night that I die

 

Now it is time, for the final act

Summon your strength

Its time to test your mettle

In your darkest hour

I have come for the blood of thy foes

Follow me into the field of battle

Into the night we ride.

 

Lineage

 

Deadly waters

In a sea of pain

Do I drown in vindication?

 

Severing ties

with the violent side

drinking from the depths

of my well

 

Demons lashing at my soul

Forcing me to lose control

I will never fail again

Will this chaos end?

 

See the day

Ride away

Move beyond the

Path of hate

 

Boiling blood

From the depths of my rage

Slaughter seems like the only way

 

I can see light

But its shrouded in red

Primal voices dragging me away

 

With the sound of distant thunder,

spirit torn asunder as I look upon my grave

With the turning of the tides and the shifting of the sands

Has he sealed my fate?
