Sacred Oath

...'Till Death Do Us Part tracks

Lyrics


1. TWO POWERS

The dream it ends, or was it real ?
My mind cannot recall
I saw the world engulfed in sea
The power forces fall
I begin to fall into a deep sleep
Or is it another plane ?

I saw the world,a lump of clay just hanging there in space
And in the core the rock contorts to form an ugly face
Tears condense and fall upon the earth - life begins again

Foliage spreads across the earth
The sunlight gives us warmth to ease the birth
Creatures crawling, swimming, flying
Fighting
Two powres arise and one descends
Two powers fight until the end
The race is on, the battles begun




2. THE OMEN

I ruled a world possessed with hate
It's destruction was a product of your fate
This world is done, I'll build anew
Though my father is king,
his reign is through

Watch my hatred flow
As my offspring grow
Now I'll rule again
The Omen

The seed is sown to create
My tainted son
Eyes wide open, mission has begun
Watching father, thunder cracks the sky
Feel the rain, it's his turn to cry




3. A CRYSTAL VISION

Now the time has come
The battle will begin once again -
Death
The two powers will fight for control
Will the Omen tempt the soul ?

Man may perish again for he will
never feed the light
No, man is never right
He'll never win the fight
I sense the rain

You children of Christ aren't any better
Your world is getting wetter now !




4. QUEEN OF THE NIGHT

Watch us gather 'round the fire
Sharing ritual soul to soul
Cone of Power teasing desire
Pagan minds, black as coal

Queen of the night

Raised from her grave before the altar
Her kingdom come, her will be done
Will you run, or will you ride her ?
Will she fork you with her tongue ?

Cry
Mourning hearts crying out in sorrow
Day after day live in pain
No yesterday, no tomorrow
Is this love ? Am I insane ?

No one understand true love
Until they're deep in the heart
Of the Queen of the Night




5. MAGICK SON

As the battle subsides neither power has won
Like a star falls a second son
Made in the likeness of the other,
Casting spells -
The wizard knows the ways
Black and white, highest grade
Watch him weave spell after spell

Hear my prophecy,doom shall come to thee !
Perpetual night, dark must join with light

[Chorus]
Magick Son warns us of the end
Magick Son - a bolt of light,
He does descend
Magick Son warns us of the end
Magick Son - our ways we must amend

Before the two the twin speaks his peace
Yet they frown, both in disbelief
Watch him turn earth into water

Both father and son scorn at this plea
It's been this way forever and so it shall be
Both sons prepare to fight as the
King stares on in fright
The dark one conjures up despair
Magick Son is sucked into the air !




6. PROPHECY

The sadness,the sadness
The tears that wash and cleanse
The madness, the madness
Hot blood in the heart of a frenzy

As the sweet maiden leads us through
The skies, the fields and the water so blue
As we strive to meet the Father of Beyond

The altar,the altar on which we pray for life
Yet we falter, we falter
May the black witch bury the knife

As we find our last kiss on the serpent's lips
Will we never find the truth that lies
Deep within our hearts from birth ?

But now we see in the lives that be
The power of the prophet
Majestic beauty shining brightly
On the foundation of evil ruin




7. WORDS UPON THE STONE

Have you ever felt a calling
Drawing you somewhere ?
A place you feel you've been before -
A connection to what's there ?

It was in the local cemetary
I searched for the stone
And what I found filled me with awe -
The words upon that stone !

[Chorus]
Reader behold as you pass by
As you are now so once was I
As I am now so you must be
Prepare for death and follow me

I'm telling you I felt myself
Down beneath that stone
A life before that I lived
Centuries far gone

The name had long since been eroded
The date was barely there
But all I saw was mine upon
That tombstone's deadly stare

[Chorus]




8. THE FERRYMAN'S LAIR

Death is his life - he kills the innocent for his own need
The end of his knife is stained with the blood of a forgotten creed
Running alone, living his life in sincerity
The fall of a throne satisfies his need for security

Many men before in their foolish youth have tried to mislead the Ferryman
To pass the cold waters with reason uncouth, they tried to play him a merryman

From a forgotten land he rules the waters to eternity
His bony hand is ridden with the blood of his daring prey
He works for a god & a devil as well
Oh ! Watch him nod as you enter his hell

He peers out from his hood
Laughing aloud as you step in his lair
His black ugly hood stares into souls as he asks for his fare
But take care foolish passenger
Please beware of the Ferryman !




9. BATTLE CRY

Across the fields we see the fight
On battlefields fought through the night
We killed by force, we struck them dead
The men were gored,we moved ahead

So many fell to meet their doom
So many more will be there soon
We met our fate and felt the pain
A thunderstorm of crimson rain

Horses galloping through the trees
Bloody soldiers on their knees
Raise the swords, it's time to die
Sceraming out our battle cry

[Chorus]
Battle Cry !
Battle Cry !
Time to die !
Battle Cry !

A flag is raised in victory
The battlefield is a blood - red sea
We fought the war and lived to tell
About the war and of it's hell

We've seen it all - the bodies falling
Millions watching others mauling
A canopy for human season
Millions die without a reason

Horses galloping through the trees
Bloody soldiers on their knees
Raise the swords, it's time to die
Screaming out our battle cry

[Chorus]




10. RISING FROM THE GRAVE

On this night my spirit will rise
Through your life death takes disguise
Your deceit has tortured my soul
Take revenge - my hatred now unfolds

Into the night I'll take your useless life
Feel my vengeance as I kill you with my knife

Rising from the grave -
Feel my evil knife
Rising from the grave -
I've come for you,I've come tonight
Rising from the grave -
Feel my evil knife
Rising from the grave -
I've come to take your life

The time has come for all to take the sacred oath
The time has come for the dead to avenge the living
This oath shall be the doorway to your world
It is sacred - unite darkness with light

On this night all remains the same
Except your life - it ends in writhing pain
