Black I open my eyes And soon realise I sense that I am falling down Darkness I see What has happened to me? Memories of my past life gone And I fall into black No turning back As I push into the unknown fire In the distance I see Ground is rushing at me Preparing for the impact All I feel is sadness and pain All I hear are screams in the flames Who am I? Can’t remember my name Will I ever see the sunshine again? Cold I’m chilled to the bone And I feel so alone The fires burn as cold as ice Flows black through my veins As I walk through the flames This road is never ending, long And the journey goes on It’s feeling so wrong Contradicting lack of sense A world upside down And a terrible sound A thousand tortured souls Are screaming All I feel is sadness and pain All I hear are screams in the flames Who am I? Can’t remember my name Will I ever see the sunshine again? Lost In a land so confused Every path that I choose Returns me to the starting point In a world full of fears Feel I’m walking for years Yet I know it’s but a moment passed No conception of time Without reason or rhyme Trapped here for eternity Between heaven and hell Where the fallen ones dwell And await their fate And final judgement All I feel is sadness and pain All I hear are screams in the flames Who am I? Can’t remember my name Will I ever see the sunshine on my face again?

"Where Am I? What is this place? I don't know why I'm here Or what I've done I don't even know my name All I remember is the darkness and the sound of the blade..."

I wandered far and wide Across this barren land No terminus in sight When will this journey end? From the dark A fearful sound I turn around and stare Black figure – arise With flaming eyes It said: “Decide” “Join us Or rot here for eternity Now choose your fate” I turn and break to run But every path looks the same A hot breath on my back Voices call my name I stumble and fall What does it want from me? Beg for mercy, there is none Just a question That said: “Decide” “Join us Or rot here for eternity Now choose your fate” Cold fingers drag me down Into the black abyss Who am I? What have I done To meet a fate like this? Cry out towards the sky Who will save me now? Black figure, last sight With a smile It said: “Decide” “Join us Or rot here for eternity Now choose your fate”

Cries, like half-told whispers, take flight Plead for mercy in the dread and dark of night Cast down, no reasons given for my plight “Please God, help me” I scream toward the morbid sky Through the black – a blinding light Thunder crack, my world goes white Where am I? A golden hall Of wings and white, my saviour calls my name Sighs, like fond remembered sunshine, so warm Tears, unbridled joy and happiness adorn Fall down to my knees, “you saved me from this hell” “Hark, child” the figure said. “Listen now and listen well” “New life begins and old life ends Repent your sins and make amends Be one of us and pledge your soul Of wings and white forever more” “One hundred thousand angels Shall sing the songs and sound the herald call The gates of paradise shall open Eternal servitude is your reward” Torn by indecision for my fate Saved from one hell yet I pause before the gates A master, dark or light, is still lord to be served In blinking eye, I wake to find I’m falling back to blackened earth As I plunge toward the ground From above a fearful sound “Hark, my child – you must repent Your only hope is heaven sent” “One hundred thousand angels Shall sing the songs and sound the herald call But ignore this final warning Join us or we’ll watch you as you fall And you’ll be damned!”
6.
“Arise my child” Allow me to show you your life as a mortal man Your brutal, sadistic trail across the land And holding no value for your victim’s life And dancing only to the sweet song Of the butcher’s knife Remember, you will see The grim reality Accept what’s meant to be Let darkness set you free Arise Taking pleasure in the suffering Emotions detaching as you tear the skin And feeling the power, holding life and death A morbid pleasure as they bleed And gasp their final breath Remember, you will see The grim reality Accept what’s meant to be Let darkness set you free Arise Arise now my minion, accept now who you are The legions of darkness are yours to lead the charge A leader, our armies are yours to take command My minion, my servant, arise: become the devil’s hand Remember, you will see The grim reality Accept what’s meant to be Let darkness set you free Arise
7.
Remember the screams and the pain Remember the blood fall like rain The fear as they cried out my name As I plunged in the knife The fire of my hatred burns cold The stench as the bodies grow old The thrill of the power I hold As I snuff out their lives As thunder howls through the sky My armies of darkness arise Reflect on my past mortal life The hatred, the sadistic pride Feel the power Coursing deep in my veins The chosen leader At last… I now know who I am I am the blackened angel!

“Cry ‘Havoc!’, and let slip the dogs of war!” Armies gather round and sing the songs Of battle, blood and war Prophecies retold, reciting dark folklore A hundred million soldiers strong Intone the arcane battle cries Setting sights on victory in darkened skies War devising Dark uprising Generals sound the call The armies ready for a swift attack The time for doubt or fear has passed No turning back Barking orders, general quarters Soldiers gather up to fight Into the sky, the horde now taking flight Rising power Final hour Assault the gates – tear them down Raze the walls – to the ground Of wings and white now turned to red Victory when all lay cold and dead War devising Dark uprising Rising power Final hour Assault the gates – tear them down Raze the walls – to the ground Of wings and white now turned to red Victory when all lay cold and dead Now follow the black Prepare to… ATTACK!

Guard 1: "What was that?" Guard 2: "What? I don't hear anythi--" Guard 1: "Listen... do you hear it? THERE! Do you see it? SOUND THE BELLS! SOUND THE BELLS, HURRY!" Soldiers: "Sound the bells!"
10.
Striking from the darkness Swift and deadly might Engulf the golden fortress With death and dark of night Crushing all before us The battle now at hand Savage war of vengeance Kill all where they stand Slashing, burning, ripping, hate The hordes of hell ascend Merciless and vicious The battle rages on The holy war of legend The prophecy of one Black meets white The sky turns red Stand and fight ‘Til all lay dead WAR! WAR! Chaos all around us Bodies in the flames Screams of dying soldiers Crying out in pain The lord of darkness rises Snuffing out the sun His shadow falls upon us A reign of fire begun Begging, pleading, crying, pray The time of white must end Praying to their master Now feeling all alone The King of Light defeated And torn down from His throne “My brothers, For too long we have been forced to hide, cast down into the flames. But the time has come to rise up and reclaim what it rightly ours. The dark lord has spoken: he is the chosen one. Now follow the black, onwards to VICTORY!” Now the fighting’s over And silence fills the air Dismembered limbs and bloodied wings And corpses everywhere The golden walls of heaven Now stained with holy blood Once mighty Lord impaled on sword And body left to rot Fire and flames and profane names Of wings and white now black With heaven draped in crimson And claimed now as our own The lord of darkness smiles As He takes His captured throne Black meets white The sky turned red Stand and fight Now all lay dead WAR! WAR!

"We won...?"

Fires blazing, banners fly Rotting corpses piled around us Pure blood flows, putrid wine Feast of flesh, unholy banquet Vicious battle, countless dead To the victors: spoils and riches A thousand lifetimes now history New chapter opens here tonight Fires in the night Songs of victory Pyres for the white Now that all lay cold and dead Cries to the skies Songs of victory Dark horde arise A world now turned to red Profane dances, ancient songs Carnal sins around the firelight Maggots feasting, a stench of death Golden throne caked with black blood Now a leader: The Angel Black Made a saviour, the chosen master Unholy minions rally ’round Drink to future conquests won Feast is over, embers glow East horizon, red dawn rising Generals massing, plans unfurled And so begins The Campaign of Death Rid the world of the mortal filth Gather ’round The Blackened Angel Sound the war horns, the battle cry Dark horde again defiles the sky
13.
“And so began a millenium of slaughter. The dark armies spread across the lands in what was to become known as the campaign of death.” Deadly horde, unholy Lord, we spread across the land Millenniums of silence passed, the time is now at hand No obstacle to stop us, we have overthrown the light Endless pain, let darkness reign, embrace eternal night Pleading They are crying Screaming They are dying Bodies burn as steel turns and renders flesh and bone Dismebering the mortal world, destruction stone by stone Women plead and children bleed and all are put to death Prayers in vain, they die in pain and take their final breath Marching on, the campaign long, the brutal war ascends Corpses line the battlefields, the carnage never ends None withstand the dark lord’s hand, the power hungry lust Seas of red, we crush the dead and grind them into dust

The Dark Lord: "Go... cleanse the eastern lands." The Blackened Angel: "Yes, my lord." The Dark Lord: "You serve your master well."
15.
As I walked away Footsteps echoed in the vast and deserted hall What a price to pay Endless power yet these cold walls reflect what’s inside False control, empty soul, eternal toll The chosen one, yet still a servant A choice to serve the light Turned away for I need no master Frozen with fear then blinded with might Pride and ego, my self-made downfall Made the pact, became The Black, mount the attack Heaven fell, and I see now so did I… Eternal torment Eternal war Leader yet a servant A master yet a pawn Amass the faithful Call unto my side The Blackened Angel Commands you all to rise Arise… Come with me and we Shall depose the king Join the chosen one On to victory Time has come to choose There’s no turning back Crush all who oppose We, the army black

Blitz attack on the gates of hell Streams of black engulf the fire Caught off guard and the sentries fall Smash the walls as we penetrate No more shall we be the pawns Just a piece in the Dark Lord’s puzzle Rip free from our servitude Destroying all who dare oppose Servants now never more Rise up for civil war Free will we’re fighting for Rise up for civil war Raging through the Dark Lord’s lands Hail the cry of The Blackened Angel Ten to one we face our match But all succumb to the renegades Savage fighting, brutal death Scores are lost by opposing armies Dark blood stains the grounds of hell Thousands fight and thousands die Go! Fight! The bloody death toll never ends Brothers turn upon their own And friends now slaughter former friends Die! A former empire now implodes War until no one is left to fight The Blackened Angel stands before the throne The Angel Black and Dark Lord stand No man left across the lands But the chosen one and unholy god A singing sword and the world has now gone black

I’ve seen empires rise and time and wars turned them to dust I’ve been a leader of men, I watched them crumble into rust I’ve known the great despair of losing all that made you whole And shown the power I hold, as forces battle for my soul I am the chosen one, the last Yet I am alone Won’t kneel for any man or god Immortal victor, only one Now I am alone I am free yet still a slave to time And I am alone I was enslaved, too blind to see that all this power was a lie A pawn in a madman’s game, Heaven and Earth condemned to die Too late I realised I was nothing but a slave Rose up, dark deicide, alone but free now of my chains I was the chosen one, the last Now I am alone Boundless power, cursed to be a god Eternal servitude to time All on my own I know what must be done; return To find my way back home… "And so it ends."
