Dust of Time tracks

Lyrics

1. IMMINENT ASSAULT

(Instrumental)




2. DUST OF TIME

The world around turns bitter and gray,
No telling of days ahead.
When it comes the time to pay,
The words remain unsaid

Visions clear, reality strikes
And all doors disappear
Fight against the dimming lights
Then overcome with fear

Prying eyes, no dignity

Cold winds piercing flesh and bone
There’s nothing left in mind
Lamenting and dying upon a throne
Becoming the dust of time

The thought of lives yet to come
Brings sadness in frail eyes
Death holds you under its thumb
Slowly turning to lies

Tales of times are all you have
Between silence and whisper
Long ago you walked a path
A journey to last forever

A palace enchained in stone,
Forever abandoned; alone




3. OPPULENCE OF HATE

Burning, seething, building inside
Immanent assault
Blackened, sanguine, pounding rage
Devastation results

Hear a thousand screams from far
Perceiving the pain so near
Imbibe the taste of suffering
The bitterness is sweet

Heralded from underground
Champion of the weak
A rotten pedestal of lies
Stands below my feet

Promising a golden age
Ambitious words are thrown
Within the land
The seeds of massacres are sewn

Call to arms
Getting closer
Fuelled on years of dearth

Call to arms
Erase their lives
And scorch the earth

I sit atop the highest mount
The world within my hands
The opulence of hate, my crime
Luxurious guilt demands

I speak of dark impending doom
You easily could berate
But you are sightless not to see that this is our fate




4. SKYFALL

Words bewitching, prophecies are sold
We’re drowning in an ocean
Among the shit that is spoken
Separate the meek from the bold

In time all empires fall
From fools to bitter war
And to those who ignore
I say suffer the loss of all

Control the drones
People are lost
Useless reforms
Repeat the past

Icy storms of violence fill the air
Battles waged for greed
All consumption therefore will impede
All we do is sit and stare

Brothers forced to slay their kind
Endure the burning flesh
When they march to certain death
They leave their future behind

Control the drones
People are lost
Useless reforms
Repeat the past

And chaos will reign
Servants sent to die
The blackest corruption
Bringing the skyfall

Strangled by the poisoned breath
All paradises burn
Passed the point of no return
They sent us to our deaths




5. KINGS OF ALL

Too far back I can’t remember when
We were glorious and strong
Kings of all where we belong
Kings of all men

Too far back I remember when
We were glorious and strong
Kings of none where we belong
Only kings among the men

Beaten, bloodied, scattered and weak
We will rise!
Scarred, we fight for what we seek
We will rise!

Assembled and desperate with all our kin
We’re breaking down the gates
Against all odds we fight to win
Or fall to our fates

The struggle is deadly fierce
When all had seemed won
Choking on our fears, pushed back,
It was all or none

Beaten, bloodied, scattered and weak
We will rise!
Scarred, we fight for what we seek
We will rise!

The remaining made a stand
The remaining fought them back
The remaining retook the land
The remaining charged the attack

Crippling wounds and tired hands
Wrecked and battered we press on
Brothers dead at our feet
But we’ll fight until the last man falls




6. THE ENEMY

When the day was still young
The light were bright and high
A place unknown to everyone
Yet forced to run and hide

The anger
The struggle
The enemy
The pain

Hopeless
I fight
The enemy
In vain

Where is my enemy?
Dismal indemnity
Holding back ability
Hate for eternity

The anger
The struggle
The enemy
The pain

In darkness I will fall
If the enemy persists
I trust no one else
I surely won’t be missed

New scars upon my hands
Too easy to fly to the end
Stab them in the back
Laughing as they bend

The anger
The struggle
The enemy
The pain




7. LEGION

March, across lands unknown
To rule, to take it all
I see all and will make it mine
With the invincible

Legion
Fighting barbarian hordes
Legion
Taking what everyone holds

Conquest and destruction hails
A time of peace under war
Remove all those who are to blame
Imposing malice through my

Legion
Vanquishing all who remain
Legion
Over ruled by the insane

In the name of good we kill
And rape and oblige our way
Who now has the will
To stand and be destroyed?

I know, mountains and wind will bend
To my ideals and make me God
Every life is mine to spend
Fei victas

Centuries under my yoke
A vision of order unchanged
War from the inside, war from the north,
We who are about to die salute

Legion
Fighting the northern hordes
Legion
An empire under the sword

In the name of good we kill
And rape and oblige our way
Who now has the will
To stand and be destroyed?

I know, mountains and wind will bend
To my ideals and make me God
Every life is mine to spend
Fei victas

Legion
Crumbling into the dust
Legion
Falling back into the past

In the name of good we kill
And rape and oblige our way
Who now has the will
To stand and be destroyed?

I know, mountains and wind will bend
To my ideals and make me God
Every life is mine to spend
Sulum mos intereo

Where have we been taken?
Why have we been shaken?
Western life is mine to spend
Enhver ville dø




8. WIND OF SOULS

(Instrumental)




9. BROKEN ARROW

Don’t eat the body of a lie
And elder dreams of sorrow
The obsolete on broken wings
We fly on broken arrows (X2)

A culture bound by fear
Birth surrounded by misery
When the end will draw near
I greet the lord of suffering

Don’t eat the body of a lie
And elder dreams of sorrow
The obsolete on broken wings
We fly on broken arrows (X2)

The hammer strikes the nail
We carved out true destiny
In the color no longer pale
Know where the beast is meant to be

Don’t eat the body of a lie
And elder dreams of sorrow
The obsolete on broken wings
We fly on broken arrows (X2)




10. A HUNDRED WARS

Rulers of people are now rulers of lands
The world has changed but the world remains the same

The next in line
Is the next to lie
Blue blood runs deep in every vein

The first to strike
Will state his right
To fairly rule with tyrant’s hands

No mercy
No tolerance
Skirmishing for your ends

Murdering
Conquering
No one defends

Suffer now
Suffer then
Never opening the door
Capitulate or fight a hundred wars

Advance if you will
Only to kill
Using the weak to bring down the strong

Robbing blind
The people behind
Taxing the lifeline and bleeding it dry

No mercy
No tolerance
Skirmishing for your ends

Murdering
Conquering
No one defends

Suffer now
Suffer then
Never opening the door
Capitulate or fight a hundred wars

Charge across the fields of blood
Born only to face a hideous death
Plague and disease eating away your heart
Holy men lying and corrupting us all

Millions dead
Heroes you dread
No one is safe and no one is spared

A century’s passed
The first is the last
Success and succession are back to the start

No mercy
No tolerance
Skirmishing for your ends

Murdering
Conquering
No one defends

Suffer now
Suffer then
Never opening the door
Capitulate or fight a hundred wars (X2)




11. THE NIGHT STALKER

Where is the burning core?
I can’t find the pain
All I want is blood to stain
The walls and bodies on the floor

I crave the deathly screams
The calling up to my adversary
All existence is so contrary
Loving the demons in my dreams

Silently creeping into the room
The midnight lord I will pray
I have come to take you away
Into Hell’s infernal womb

Everyone fears my unholy name
Everyone fears my evil face
My devilish smiles and satanic grace
The night will never be the same

Consuming another life
Telling my story with a knife
Consuming another life
Telling my story with a knife

Deadly virtues are my creed
Stealing futures fill my need
Only happy when you bleed and die

My beliefs inside a scar
The fallen angel’s backward star
Hell doesn’t seem so far

Bound to wait in prison’s hands
People shouting wanting me dead
But then I enter into their heads
I await my master in this dark land

Consuming another life
Telling my story with a knife
Consuming another life
Telling my story with a knife
