Necromanther – The Raven Of Death lyrics

The countless bodies that you see
When you're just passing by
I think they go far beyond
The stars you count in the sky

Then I come with my sword in hands
Made of plate you can't afford
When an ancient brings us death
And sends allegiance to your lord

Neither does he or anyone
Knows what's coming next
When an ancient brings disaster
And a plague that's growing fast

But where's the ancient now
His body has turned into sand
I only saw him growing wings
And flying through this land

Send your plague
You foreign leader
Send it fast
And I'll send mine either

Raven of death
Your flight through temptation
Raven of death
Their walk into desolation

I couldn't judge him knowing that
His power can't be wasted
We'll join together and send the evil
That humanity has never faced

I need you now my winged beast
Destroyer of illusion
The face of the earth reflects
On my sins with prostitution

No fires have been shot yet
Only prepared for attack
The ancient is standing on the hill
The war will over and not turning back

God is watching all his work
Dying and falling amongst the war
Skies being invaded by ravens
And burning all the world...

"and his eyes have all the seeming of a demon that is dreaming
And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted - nevermore!"
