lyrics

Ruler of his land, passed to him by kin
He must hunt a gry lion, the last of its kind
To claim the throne for his own


Securing his land, he hunts his game
Though barbarians have united under one name
The marked one will live just to see him die

In the lonely desert the sun sets on the blood hills
The oracle will come true the gry lion will die
Opet will burn
The kindness of the sunbird will cause the death of his king
He didn’t know the enemy he made
The gods can’t save them

The army of the black king
will follow him to death
Numbers more
than men can count
Fate blows on the wind
The oracle
told them
Told them they were doomed
But the warning can’t
save him
The wheels turn too soon


United the tide
sweeps across
The gry lion
makes his stand
Fight for every
mile lost
As the men
dwindle before his hand

Deserted by
His sunbird
The priests legion
Still holds the line
Courage hangs
By a thread
What will stop
All this death?

The end has come
Fate has won
The city begins to burn
The last men fight and die

Timon has revenge
But still they fight
To the last loyal man
The Gry Lion will stand


The army without number descends on them now
Baal’s breath lights the sky terror fills the air
They watch their kin burn
Lines break upon the onslaught, at the temple they stand
The hand of friendship the oracle foresaw
The Lion falls on the Sunbird’s sword
In the lonely desert the sun sets on the blood hills
No memory remains of those great men
History has been burned
The kindness of the sunbird to the black king
The sign of the gods was marked clear on him
Their Gods betrayed them
