Wake up now, this is the time youve waited for.

Far below, where shadows fester as they grow,
An army thousands strong, obsessed by right and wrong,
They sense their time is coming near.
So they turn towards the light from their region of the night,
Marching on and on,
They near the air, it wont be long.

You know youre on the way out,
Its just a matter of time.
You thought youd rule the world forever,
Long live the king, and dont spare the loser.

After all, youre not what you thought you were at all.
Youre just a natural fact, another cul-de-sac
On natures hard unfeeling trail.
Now all those dreams of old will be stories left untold,
Cut off in your prime, extinct until the end of time.

You know youre on the way out,
Its just a matter of time.
You thought youd rule the world forever,
Long live the king, but dont spare the loser now...

Now the host emerges, and a shadow starts to fall.
Not one knows what hit them, none can see at all.
Even as the end approaches still theyre not aware,
How can you fight a foe so deadly
When you dont even know its there?
And now that the job is almost done
Maybe some escape, no, not even one.

You know theyre on the way out,
Its just a matter of time.
You thought youd rule the world forever,
Long live the king, and dont spare the loser.
