Desaster – Thou Shalt Be King lyrics

Ravens announce that there's no mercy left
Embrace the fate of that dark hour
Treason between the dark castle's walls
The king's murdered by traitor's hand

The fatal bell announced it, for it is a knell
That calls you to heaven, or to unholy hell
Blood on the blade, the deed is done
Honour is lost, the sceptre is won

Thunder and lightning, fill the filthy air
Now tyranny reigns this land
Three witches upon the battles heath
"A bloody crown won't deserve the throne"

[repeat chorus]

The seas incarnadine
Be bloody, bold and resolute
Enrage your noble hearts
Hang those who shake with fear
Hold fast the sword and fight
With ten thousand warlike men
Till our banner hangs on the castle's walls
And the usurper is dethroned

Warriors take revenge for the infamous deed
The tyrant's fate is sealed
We wear the betrayer's head on our swords
The land is settled from the plague

All hail, brave men
For thou shalt be king
