The Showdown – Heavy Lies The Crown lyrics

Cross, star, serpents coil
Carved in the graves that scar our soil
The living will always know war
Death, rape, greed and hate
You live or die like a cop on the take
Over your shoulder, looming black
It's hell to pay and you can't come back

Oh, heavy lies the crown
Built on the back of an army bent on doom
There's no coming back for you
Oh, heavy lies the crown
Built on the back of an army bent on doom
There's no coming back for you

Amputation
Remove the heart and we all become victims
Just a culture of slaves and whores
Liberation
Subservient to this congregation
And if the shepherd is a wolf in a robe,
Then we'd rather never know

Oh, heavy lies the crown
Built on the back of an army bent on doom
There's no coming back for you
Oh, heavy lies the crown
Built on the back of an army bent on doom
There's no coming back for you

Attack
Heavy lies the crown

Cross, star, serpents coil
Carved in the graves that scar our soil
No army formed will then stand down
Heavy lies the crown

Oh, heavy lies the crown
Built on the back of an army bent on doom
There's no coming back for you
Oh, heavy lies the crown
Built on the back of an army bent on doom
There's no coming back for you

No coming back
Cross, star, serpents coil
Carved in the graves that scar our soil
No army formed will then stand down
Heavy lies the crown
