Burning fires burning lives on the long distant roads
Through the lost mountains endless so far away from home.

Crossing battles savage seas towards the mountains high
Forest blinds of wilderness we're striking out tonight
On towards our destiny we travel far and wide
Journey through the darkness as your hearts refuse to die

In the flames of hell we fire at will the fires of doom has come
With the forces of the blackest knights they're staring at the sun
Far across the distant plates of ice we're searching for the sword
When the time has come for battle now we follow with the horn

We will ride with fire burning hot towards the night sky
In the land of long ago forever in our souls
Fly on wings of shining still are burning so bright
In ancient lands of warriors we're riding on again

Burning fires burning lives on the long distant roads
Through the lost mountains endless so far away from home
Warrior soldiers forever we fought long ago
We're all lost in the darkness so far away from home

Fallen soldiers taste the steel of death the daylight dawning
Sun will shine upon the lives of burning hearts of ice
If you break through the boundaries of life this feeling of despair
And they die in their sleep for the world that will not care
You feel lost in this labyrinth of pain this sickening dismare
There's a voice inside that's calling another wasted day

Can't you see the history the suffocating madness
In the land of fallen souls there's nowhere left no place to go
I have travelled far and wide across this wasteland
Still searching for the answers for the right to understand

Burning fires burning lives on the long distant roads
Through the lost mountains endless so far away from home
Warrior soldiers forever we fought long ago
We're all lost in the darkness so far away from home

Riding through starlight and smashing the boundaries as hell-fire falls from the sky
A shadow of pain will arise from the ashes of those fallen ones who have died
Our only master with fire and fury of hell will see his bidding done
Blasting from high as the battle unfolds to the gates of the city we come

We will ride with fire burning hot towards the night sky
In the land of long ago forever in our souls
Fly on wings of shining still are burning so bright
In ancient lands of warriors we're riding on again

Burning fires burning lives on the long distant roads
Through the lost mountains endless so far away from home
Warrior soldiers forever we fought long ago
We're all lost in the darkness so far away from home

    At 9:47 it's long but I love almost every minute of it. (That one riff after the second chorus is a bit long/repetitive, hm.)
    Sam and Herman are unbelievable. It must be said, ROCK ON.

    This song is awesome!
    Also I think it's "Fly on wings of shining steel burning so bright" at least that's how another website put it and it makes more sense.
