Scorn the omen, architects of deceit
Pulverized within the jaws of defeat
Our ruin engineered
We've reached the gates of fear

Forging vengeance in the city of doom
Ripping death from sin's unholy womb
The riders on the storm
Curse the day they're born
(We were warned...)

Strike them down, strike with power
Kill them all from shore to shore
We destroy, we devour
We command the vicious dogs of war

Treads of iron crush the skulls of the damned
Stench of burning flesh covers the land
Rising from the screams
A godless war machine

Execution fire scorches the sky
Crimson horseman runs the genocide
As the sea turns red,
We raise the living dead
(Or so it's said)

Strike them down, strike with power
Kill them all from shore to shore
We destroy, we devour
We command the vicious dogs of war

Bow your heads and abandon hope
We're the gods of pain
Raise your hands if you'll join with us
And let the madness reign

Forsaken and forgotten
Condemned, hopeless and alone
The sickened and the rotten
Infect everything you've ever known

Warhammer of disaster
Crushing every living head
Surrender to the masters
The brainwashed, electric, living, dead.

There's no escaping,
The more I learn, the less I know.
I must be crazy,
I'm giving in, I'm letting go

And all the world's a stage
It's just a masquerade of crazies
Hit the lights and start the show

Bow your heads and abandon hope
We're the gods of pain
Raise your hands if you'll join with us
And let the madness reign.

Bow your heads and abandon hope
We're the gods of pain
Raise your hands if you'll join with us
And let the madness reign.
