Don't stay; run away
He has ordered assassination
Don't stay; run away
The henchmen are gathered and waiting
Don't stay; run away
Your role as usurper is found out
Don't stay; run away
Tsarina has warned of the danger

It's your own fault
That is what we wanted
It's your own fault
This is where we lay

By the light of the moon
You must escape into the deep black of the night
Fight the devil inside
Enemies poison deep within my second sight
Wasting valuable time

Ride the tides of blood
Illumination
Beauties sudden hand
Shattered crown
Stretching arms up high
We're on our way now
Leave the Czar to die

Spiraling up through the crack in the sky
Leaving material world behind
I see your face in constellations
The martyr is ending his life for mine

    Song = epic win.
    It's a very addictive song. Also, I have fantasies about sex whilst listening to the song (like, I want to have this playing in the background/make love to the song).

    Spelling czar is incorrect, the correct spelling is tsar. 'czar' is americanised because their vocabulary has a fetish for the letter 'z' and the need to be different. Also another possible mistake, where it says leave the czar to die, should be the tsarevitch, because rasputin was the healer of him, rather than the tsar. Other than the grammar issues, nothing wrong with this song, really epic.

    There is only one mistake in those lyrics which is it is not 'Leave the Czar to die' it is 'Leaving Tsar to die' but other then that it is good

    What a mammoth song. Any song that comes from an album about astral projection and Rasputin is okay with me.
