===Part 1 ===
I saw a white light<br>
 
Shining there before me<br>
 
Walking to it<br>
 
I waited for the end<br>
 
A final vision<br>
 
Promising salvation<br>
 
A resurrection<br>
 
For a fallen man<br>
 
   
Do you still wait for your God<br>
 
And the symbol of your faith?<br>
 
   
I can free you from this Hell and misery<br>
+
'''I. Prelude'''
You should never be ashamed, my son<br>
 
I can give you power beyond anything<br>
 
Trust me you will be the chosen one<br>
 
   
I was forgotten<br>
+
''(Instrumental)''
A body scorned and broken<br>
 
My soul rejected<br>
 
Taken by his blood<br>
 
Beyond redemption<br>
 
I said I´m not worth saving<br>
 
   
Forever taken<br>
 
From the one I loved<br>
 
   
Do I still wait for my God<br>
 
And a symbol of my faith?<br>
 
   
I can lead you down the path and back to life<br>
+
'''II. Resurrection'''
All I ask is that you worship me<br>
+
I saw a white light<br />
I can help you seek revenge and save yourself<br>
+
Shining there before me<br />
Give you life for all eternity<br>
+
Walking to it<br />
  +
I waited for the end<br />
  +
A final vision<br />
  +
Promising salvation<br />
  +
A resurrection<br />
  +
For a fallen man<br />
   
Servants of the fallen<br>
+
Do you still wait for your God<br />
Fight to pave the way<br>
+
And the symbol of your faith?<br />
For their saviour's calling<br>
 
Of this wicked day<br>
 
Through a veil of madness<br>
 
With a vicious play<br>
 
One man rises on<br>
 
Standing in their way<br>
 
   
Redemption<br>

Lyrics

Part 1

I. Prelude

(Instrumental)


II. Resurrection I saw a white light
Shining there before me
Walking to it
I waited for the end
A final vision
Promising salvation
A resurrection
For a fallen man

Do you still wait for your God
And the symbol of your faith?

I can free you from this Hell and misery
You should never be ashamed, my son
I can give you power beyond anything
Trust me you will be the chosen one

I was forgotten
A body scorned and broken
My soul rejected
Taken by his blood
Beyond redemption
I said I´m not worth saving

Forever taken
From the one I loved

Do I still wait for my God
And a symbol of my faith?

I can lead you down the path and back to life
All I ask is that you worship me
I can help you seek revenge and save yourself
Give you life for all eternity

Servants of the fallen
Fight to pave the way
For their saviour's calling
Of this wicked day
Through a veil of madness
With a vicious play
One man rises on
Standing in their way

Redemption
Redemption for humanity

Part 2

III. Heretic

Welcome tired pilgrim
Into the circle
We have been waiting
Everyone's gathered for your arrival
All the believers

Angels fall, all for you, heretic
Demon heart bleed for us

I've been waiting for you,
Weary preacher man
You have been expected
Now we can begin
Let this hollow day of judgment reign

I have known you father,
And your sacred quest
Blessed soldier fighting
You shall never rest
I have known you, but do you know me?

Angels fall, all for you, heretic
Demon heart bleed for us

(My soul is yours dark master, I will fight for you)
Dark master within,
I will fight for you
Dark master of sin,
Now my soul is yours
Dark master, my guide,
I will die for you
Dark master inside

I cannot see his face
But I could feel his spite
A presence from the dead
Abandoned by the light
This shadow will consume him from within

This power that I sense
The rage behind those eyes
Is just a shrouded ghost
A spirit deep inside
The body and the soul both threats
For they are one

Angels fall, all for you, heretic
Demon heart bleed for us

My soul is yours dark master,
I will fight for you

Dark master within,
I will fight for you
Dark master of sin,
Now my soul is yours
Dark master, my guide,
I will die for you
Dark master inside
Dark master, Amen,
I belong to you
Dark master within


IV. The Slaughter of the Damned

Don´t
Bother trying to find them
They will be coming to you
Fight,
Fight and destroy
Until you can´t take anymore

Slay!
Spill the blood of the rebels
They are the children of hell
Flesh,
Of the undead
Stopping at nothing to kill

Sin,
Caught in a moment of weakness
Committed the greatness of all
Sold,
Half of my soul
And now its too late for you

I judge us, my eyes see
I judge and I am just
For I speak of the beast
That lives in all of us

Unwelcome ones
Your time has come

Lord,
You are my god and my shepherd
Nothing more shall I want
War,
Through the abyss
Into the shadow of death

Fear,
There is no evil to fear now
For I know you are with me
My,
Cup overflows
With my enemy's blood

I,
Decay in the house of the lord
Forever, amen
Death,
Will follow me
All the days of my life

I judge as,
My eyes see
I judge and I am just
For I speak of the beast
That lives in all of us

Unwelcome ones
Your time has come

Servants of the fallen
Fight to pave the way
For the savior's calling
On this wicked day

Through a veil of madness
With a vicious play
One man rises up
Standing in their way
It's time for your reckoning


V. The Reckoning

(Instrumental)


VI. Salvation

My soul grows weaker
He knows and he waits
He watches over me
Standing at the inferno gates
In the hour of darkness
The moment I feared has passed
The moment I lost my faith
Promising salvation
My soul is my own now
I do not fight for you,
dark master
