Watch your tongue or have it cut from your head
Save your life by keeping whispers unsaid
Children roam the streets now orphans of war
Bodies hanging in the streets to adore

Royal fames will carve a path in chaos,
Bringing daylight to the night
Death is riding into town with armor,
They've come to take all your rights

Hail to the king
Hail to the one
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun
Hail to the king

Blood is spilt while holding keys to the throne
Born again but it's too late to atone
No mercy - from the edge of the blade
Dare escape and learn the price to be paid

Let the water flow with shades of red now
Arrows black out all the light
Death is riding into town with armour
They've come to grant you your rights

Hail to the king
Hail to the one
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun
Hail to the king

(Guitar Solo)

There's a taste of fear
When the henchmen call
Iron fist to tame the land
Iron fist to claim it all

Hail to the king
Hail to the one
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun

Hail to the king
Hail to thw one
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun

Hail to the king

    At first I thought I was hearing stare at the Son, but I'm gathering from reading the above it's " Stand in the sun ". Unless you physically have the album with the lyrics included we can make all kinds of assumptions; I believe " stare at The Son " would make sense because the band would be referring to The King as in Jesus. The problem (even though the song has an awesome sound) They don't really explain who the king is? Unless they're embarrassed to.

    First time when I heard this song, I thought it sounded like "kneel to the crowd" like a king from the very old days payed respect to his people, and instead of "fames" in this "Royal fames will carve a path in chaos" I thought it was "flames", but when I've read what others think it is, I realized and heard "fames" instead of "flames" and "crown" instead of "crowd" hah, anyways hopefully we'll get the official lyrics soon enough!
