He who walks the fire breathes!

He who walks the fire breathes
Unlike the rest

Living by the bloody creed
Kirisute gomen

Air of battle tasting stale
Reeks of deceit

Send the bitter straight to hell
Kirisute gomen

In their wretched guts all they want is to feed
Unending, covetous hunger known as greed
As the last legion makes it's way to the skies

I can see it in their eyes
They've already died
Inside, but as for the outside
We'll take their fucking heads

Quake has bred with the storm
Conceiving war

Wicked stampeding hordes
Kirisute gomen

In their wretched guts all they want is to feed
Unending, covetous hunger known as greed
As the last legion makes it's way to the skies

I can see it in their eyes
They've already died
Inside, but as for the outside
We'll take their fucking heads (x2)

I will never be what they
Want me to
I live by my own path in life
No turning
Back now, I won't be held down
Forced into a shallow grave built upon their empty ways
There's no turning back

There's hell to pay, such disarray
A bloodied mess, flesh masquerade
With all the blood making a flood
You made your path by crossing us

(Solo)

He who spits the fire seethes
All he detests
Decapitating, bloody creed
Kirisute gomen

In their wretched guts all they want is to feed
Unending, covetous hunger known as greed
As the last legion makes it's way to the skies

I can see it in their eyes
They've already died
Inside, but as for the outside
We'll take their fucking heads (x2)

(Pause)

I will never be what they
Want me to
I live by my own path in life
No turning
Back now, I won't be held down
Forced into a shallow grave built upon their empty ways
No turning
I will never be what they
Want me to
I live by my own path in life
There's no turning back

    This song, which the title is derived from "kiri sute domen", which dates back to the Feudal era of Japan. This term meant it gave samurai the right to strike at anyone of a lower class who was compromising their honour.
