Judas Priest – Prophecy lyrics
I am the darkness
Born out of light
I am the force
The fire
That burns here

Bringing the future
To all mankind
Guider of life
Of death
The sight
For the blind

Your future lies
Within my eyes
What I predict
Will terrify
I can control
What comes to be
From the past
To the present
To eternity

I am Nostradamus
Do you you believe
I am Nostradamus
That I conceive

Master of chaos
Anger and rage
I hold the key
My presence
Will unlock the cage
I am your witness
The one who can tell
Bearing the sword
The shield
To your heaven
From hell

As I unfold
The mystery
I change
The course
Of history
With premonitions
From the void
Will you live
Will you die
Will your worlds

I am Nostradamus
The hand of fate
I am Nostradamus
With love and hate

Lost in this vortex
The mystery begins
Will you be victim
Saved from your sins
Time is illusion
Trapped in the skies
Destiny's calling
Hear from my eyes

Many years ago
A boy was born
A boy with a gift
A gift that would be
The envy
Of all mankind
To see
What no other could
Great visions
Of the future
Or would a curse
Be bestowed on the boy
The boy whose name
Was Nostradamus
Damus, damus
Damus, damus, damus

I am Nostradamus
Do not forsake
I am Nostradamus
Your life's at stake

I am Nostradamus
The lightning rod
I am Nostradamus
The voice of God

Celestial comets
Reign towards earth
Alchemy's tempest
Predicting your worth
Pray for deliverence
Escape if you can
For I have borne witness
To the purging of man
