Invicta – Axeman's Altar lyrics

There was a place where people could listen though wind and trees
This was a place where people could set their minds at ease
Feeling the fire of love and desire it burns your eyes
Cry as a part of life fades as we watch it die

Here we met our friends, burned there through the night
Here we laughed and cried, held our rites
In moonlight we played and sang out songs
In darkness we prayed that we'll be strong
Standing for honor, life for death
Sacrifice must take every breath

Don't you use ignorance as an excuse
Don't try to hide from your soul it's no use
Open your brain and accept what's inside
Don't fear your feelings, it's part of the ride

I look back on the days I have seen
I think of my world turning grey from green
I ponder things to come, seeing pain and fun
Something distant screams, were the ones

Axeman's Altar, now is dust in the wind
Axeman's Altar, no repentance for sin
Axeman's Altar just a memory now
No more Altar, an example of how
Man breaks and takes what he cannot enjoy
Men will waste anything for a new toy
Man steps on man when the going gets tough
Man looks to god when man isn't enough

Now they have taken the Altar away
I watched them destroy the stone day by day
No place is left for our children to play
Oh why have they taken my Altar away?
