Machine Head – Killers & Kings lyrics

[Verse:]
Dark Lady read me the future
The ancient verse hidden away
I turn from the evergray, and
Tarot cards keep us enraptured
Open-minds become a sage
Let this unlock the cage!

[Chorus:]
Ancient power, darkest hour.
Open your 3rd eye and you'll see
(killers and kings!) Inheritors of Earth
(killers and kings!) From death there comes rebirth
And as an army we will sing, a diamond bears our ring
Killers and kings!

[Verse 2:]
Look to Earth, summon the master
Awake the human livin' inside
Ecclesiastici, the hangman gives into temperance
The sunshine's owned by the fool
High priestess, spreads her war

Death and rebirth, decaying mind
Open your 3rd eye and you'll see
(killers and kings!) Inheritors of Earth
(killers and kings!) From death there comes rebirth
And as an army we will sing, a diamond bears our ring
Killers and kings
The diamond bears our ring, yeah, oh!

[Instrumental]

[Verse 3:]
The king of pentacles is here
Strength and fortitude, help them push away the fear
We stand atop the mountain with the hungry and the lamp
As the lovers in the knight of swords give in to the damned
What do The Cards say? The prophecy remains
The devil in the emperor could keep us locked in chains
And the death card doesn't mean you'll die
It means a change is comin' that you simply can't deny

[Chorus:]
Reborn, rebirth!
From death comes rebirth!
((killers and kings!) Inheritors of Earth
(killers and kings!) From death there comes rebirth
And as an army we will sing, a diamond bears our ring
Killers and kings
(killers and kings!) Inheritors of Earth
(killers and kings!) From death there comes rebirth
And as an army we will sing, a diamond bears our ring
Killers and kings!
