Symphony X – King Of Terrors lyrics
I awake - without the sun
Encased in walls of steel
Terror so real - it blinds me

Rancid darkness steals my breath
The Pit - on the edge of death
The wells of Hell know not my name

I slip away... Into black I fade away

Terrified - to the left and to the right
Spirits of the Damned, iron shadows cast
Hear my desperate cries
Shrieking demon - far and wide
Praying for this breath to be my last

Awake again - paralyzed
I'm shackled to this alter
Sacrificed to their God

'Inch by Inch and Line by Line'
The Blade - descending lost in time
The fiends of Doom they call my name

I slip away... Into black I fade away

Terrified - to the left and to the right
Spirits of the Damned, iron shadows cast
Hear my desperate cries
Shrieking demon - far and wide
Praying for this breath to be my last

"The Inquisitorial vengeance
Had been hurried by my two-fold escape
And there was to be no more dallying
With the King of Terrors... "
(Edgar Allan Poe - The Pit and the Pendulum)

Terrified - to the left and to the right
Spirits of the Damned, iron shadows cast
Hear my desperate cries
Shrieking demon - far and wide
Praying for this breath to be my last
