Warhead 08:58
Welcome ! To the Warhead's ruins, The sky is Bible black, Like the heart of a merciless queen. In the old times of Raven's splendour, The city was a royal place. Young king Thomen have been adored, In a state of grace. Then came the loss of the noble law, And evil powers they won't face. A step on the desiccated earth, Fissurating the ground. Only is raising the dust. Where I've been, all I've lost, All I know I learned it to my cost, It's a monster that I see, Haunted by the pangs of jealousy. He will keep the filth on his face, He won't wash the blood on his hands. Almost human, not a man, All you have to do is fear the Refsnar's name. From within, he's infectious, He was born to be the lord of Chaos. He won't wipe the sweat from his brow, He's the only death dealer now. Complete drunkard, skull destroyer, Entirely devoted to his master. From when it all begins, I choose a noble life, I've been a faithful friend and for them I would die. Perfect coward, loose assassin, Living in a world of deadly sins. Before I'll reach the end, I'm gonna fight with pride, To be an honest man, not corrupted inside. I choose a noble life, and I'm ready to die. Since several moons he was on his own. Living on his world in his throne of bones. Placing his pawns and recasting all that he planed, Where cruelty and madness are carefully blended. And soon, upon the Warhead's ruins, You'll see an army walk, To track and crush the last kings. Where I've been, all I've lost, All I know I learned it to my cost, It's a monster that I see, Haunted by the pangs of jealousy. He will keep the filth on his face, He won't wash the blood on his hands. Almost human, not a man, All you have to do is fear the Refsnar's name. From within, he's infectious, He was born to be the lord of Chaos. He won't wipe the sweat from his brow, He's the only death dealer now.

Sea Of Hate 05:08
They've made our life a misery, Erasing us of reality, They threw us down in the hall of the ship, But remember, "Still waters run deep". Thörik and Garwin took another road, But let us hope they will not be caught. A river of pain, an ocean of anger, We're sailing, sailing the sea of hate. A river of pain, an ocean of anger, We're sailing, sailing the sea of hate… Sea of pain… sea of hate… sea of pain. Alifaar speaks, his words are flowing, Meneden is resurrecting. A river of pain, an ocean of anger, We're sailing, sailing the sea of hate. A river of pain, an ocean of anger, We're sailing, sailing the sea of hate… Sea of pain… sea of hate… sea of pain.

A long time without seeing my crowd, My hope has gone and my kingdom is down. I close my eyes and think of you, I'm no longer the king of Thylia. I put my trust in the hands of the gods, But I let my fate in the steel of my sword, I accept the trials we're going through, A fatality in a different view. Doubt is the own of the human being, But I cannot believe in our victory, So I close my eyes and dream of you, And we'll be safe in Thylia. The more they get, the more they want, We need a helping hand. They're pushing me to the breakpoint, And I swear revenge. The flame in the palm of his hand stops to burn and I ask for the silence. All we hear is the sound of the water against the hull. A key in the lock and the door slowly moves Letting us in ignorance, The light takes me in its embrace. We met Cryptock, the leader of men, In this deadlock he's the one who can. We met Cryptock, the leader of men, In this deadlock he's our helping hand. He tells us that he wants to take a revenge Poisoning his existence. All we hear is the sound of his crew screaming in pain. The tension was high and the smell of the action Was so intense, The night takes me in its embrace.

In ancient times, timeworn and dried, The sand in a prison cell, Carried away by the wind, for thousand years of reign. In times to come, he'll bring us despair and the storm. Listen to my prayers, casting out my fears, Time changes from days to weeks, And from weeks to years, I feel the rage it wreaks. What will I become? And where do I belong? I don't fear what's perfect clear, The ghouls of time are walking on me. I behold a perfect gold, The ghouls of time have taken their toll. All these stories of long ago, In olden days beloved by all. These fairytales are forgotten, We've closed the book and put an end. And creatures rise from the dead, Once again the time has fled. What will I become? And where do I belong? I don't fear what's perfect clear, The ghouls of time are walking on me. I behold a perfect gold, The ghouls of time have taken their toll. They're getting closer day by day, I hear them come… I hear them come, The ghouls of time. What will I become? And where do I belong? I don't fear what's perfect clear, The ghouls of time are walking on me. I behold a perfect gold, The ghouls of time have taken their toll. In times to come, he'll bring us despair and the storm. Listen to my prayers, casting out my fears, Time changes from days to weeks, And from weeks to years, I feel the rage it wreaks.

Walking through the woods of Lethya, Snowed under with a secret phobia. They entered in the forest, keeping along the lake, Still believe in their quest that no one could ever break. In the shadows of the trees, Stands a sorrow on her needs, She'll be satisfied to see them die, Under the moonlight. Covering their faces overcast, Their cloaks spinning around in a blast. A slow move in the groves, stirring up their fears, They pray to see a dove circling through the leaf. She pretends to be the cruellest, She turns your hopes into dust, She is the witch of the forest, the mistress of lust. She pretends to be the cruellest, She turns your hopes into dust, She is the witch of the forest, the mistress of lust. In the shadows of the trees, Stands a sorrow on her needs, She'll be satisfied to see them die, Under the moonlight. Suddenly surrounded by the light, A little triumph without any fight, Elves in the blizzard appeared just where she stood, Led them without a word at the edge of the wood. She pretends to be the cruellest, She turns your hopes into dust, She is the witch of the forest, the mistress of lust.

It's been a long time since I've buried my crown, The day had past since everyone turned my own. I'm laying on my back now, And you just hit me with your knife. It's been a long time since I've buried my crown. Why do they come to me to die? In my arms when I see their faces there. Why do they come to be killed by my hands? Will they stay? Will they go? Will they be in search of glow? But when they came to read the signs, All is banished from their minds. Spelling the letters of my name, You have failed your mission of death. And I lay down spilling my blood, Don't be sorry it's all your fault. Well, I am not dead, I see you run in your white dress, All if it was in a nightmare... Why do they come to me to die ? Promise me, The sun will rise today like a liar. Release me, From the weight I have to carry on my shoulders. If someone just says that I've won the game Of being to forsake, It's been a long time since I've buried my crown. Why do you come to me to die? In my arms when I see your face again. Why do you come to be killed by my hands? Will you stay? Will you go? Will you be in search of glow? But when you came to read the signs, All is banished from your mind.

Walking through the forest then across the land, They finally arrived to the walls of Thylia. But just before saying anything, Thörik reminded the Colwin's words: “Go and find Xedath, my right hand man, he will listen to you”. The first thing they saw was his head on a spear, Then all became so clear. Refsnar was already there, And all seemed so unfair. Oh my brothers, listen to me, We all great your bravery. Sing your glory and cry our friends, This victory will be yours again. The battle that no one could behold was going to unfold. The sound they won't hear anymore, The locks of the heavy doors. Some voices rise from the raw of cells To chant the Colwin's name. Hope was therefore and now allowed To find some new fellows. Don't let me down, come and fight again. Don't let me down, 'cause this is not the end. I wanna feel the honour before all fades away. Oh my brothers, listen to me, We all great your bravery. Oh my brothers please listen to me, We all great your bravery, Sing your glory and cry your friends, This victory will be yours again.

The sun is down and my story begins, Listen it well and open your ears, The tale I'm singing is carved in the sand, Painting the heroes of Ravenland. Now I remember this man, He crushes the skulls with the strength of his hands, Now he is gone but he was not alone, I sing for him all the way home, Sing for him all the way home. Dark clouds appear and cover all the plain, Bring the driven snow and the heavy rain, The tale I'm singing is carved in the stone, Not just a medieval verse chronicle. Now I remember this man, He holds the power to control the flame, Now he is gone but he was not alone, I sing for him all the way home, Sing for him all the way home. The night has come and my story goes on, In any place and in any season, The tale I'm singing is carved on the wood, Living and dying just where they stood. Now I remember this man, He could heal the wounds and the terrible pain, Now he is gone but he was not alone, I sing for him all the way home, Sing for him all the way home. The moon is high and my story's over, Finally they all get out from under, The tale I'm singing has come to an end, They're gone the heroes of Ravenland. Now I remember these men, They crushed the skulls with the strength of their hands, Now they are gone but they were not alone, I sing for them all the way home, Sing for them all the way home. was not alone, I sing for him all the way home, Sing for him all the way home. The moon is high and my story's over, Finally they all get out from under, The tale I'm singing has come to an end, They're gone the heroes of Ravenland. Now I remember these men, They crushed the skulls with the strength of their hands, Now they are gone but they were not alone, I sing for them all the way home, Sing for them all the way home.
