Heavens Gate – The Sentinel lyrics

[from A Tribute to Judas Priest, Legends of Metal, Vol. 2]

Along deserted avenues
Steam begins to rise
The figures primed and ready
Prepared for quick suprise
He's watching for a sign
His life is on the line

[Chorus:]
Sworn to avenge
Condemned to hell
Tempt not the blade
All fear the sentinel

Dogs whine in the alleys
Smoke is on the wind
From deep inside it's empty shell
A cathedral bell begins
Ringing out it's toll
A storm begins to grow

[Repeat chorus]

Amidst the upturned burned out cars
The challengers await
And in their fists clutch iron bars
With which to seal his fate
Across his chest in scabbards rest
The rows of throwing knives
Whose razor points in challenged tests
Have finished many lives

[Solo]

[Bridge:]
Now facing as another
The standoff eats at time
Then all at once the silence falls
As the bell ceases it's chime
Upon this sign the challengers
With shrieks and cries rush forth
The knives fly out like bullets
Upon their deadly course
Screams of pain and agony
Rent the silent air
Amidst the dying bodies
Blood runs everywhere
The figure stands expressionless
Impassive and alone
Unmoved by this victory
And the seeds of death he's sown

[Repeat chorus 4x]
