Symphony X – King Of Terrors lyrics

I awake - without the sun

Encased in walls of steel

Terror so real - it blinds me


Rancid darkness steals my breath

The Pit - on the edge of death

The wells of Hell know not my name


I slip away... into black I fade away


Terrified - to the left and to the right

Spirits of the Damned, iron shadows cast

Hear my desperate cries

Shrieking demon - far and wide

Praying for this breath to be my last


Awake again - paralyzed

I'm shackled to this alter

Sacrificed to their God


'Inch by Inch and Line by Line'

The Blade - descending lost in time

The fiends of Doom they call my name


I slip away... into black I fade away


Terrified - to the left and to the right

Spirits of the Damned, iron shadows cast

Hear my desperate cries

Shrieking demon - far and wide

Praying for this breath to be my last



"The Inquisitorial vengeance

Had been hurried by my two-fold escape,

And there was to be no more dallying

With the King of Terrors..."

[Edgar Allan Poe - The Pit and the Pendulum]


Terrified - to the left and to the right

Hear my desperate cries

Spirits of the Damned, iron shadows cast

Shrieking demon - far and wide

Praying for this breath to be my last
