The time is here Time to be brave, while others fear Fear the stars, the moon, and the Holy Ghost It's what lurks in the dark that scares us the most You're damned if you do, you're damned if you don't What tomorrow brings is still the unknown But can you condone? How to atone? I'm so alone How can I know I won't bemoan? Every tale, needs its star and knave Which part I play is yet to be unveiled History: just what's agreed Yet it will judge both you and me Shield and swords, will win you wars But in the end, the battle's for our hearts Fought by bards You look back in time No-one heard the bells chime You wonder how How could they this allow? Exactly the same Are the questions aimed your way When looking back on today The time is here Time to be brave, let others fear We know the walls will fall But out of the ashes a new day will dawn We've enslaved the world We have slaughtered, we've burned All, in the name of our faith Only a fool would except Others to settle for anything less The tide is about to turn The sea has pulled away Like small children we play What is this? Come take a look at all these fish! As long as you spend There is more for you to lend Someone always saves us in the end The time is here Time to be brave, let others fear We know the walls will fall But out of the ashes a new day will dawn We've enslaved the world We have slaughtered, we've burned All, while knowing what is best. Might take a year or ten, Generations of men, We've passed the point of no return Fifty-three days in fifty-three Fifty-three steps for you to acknowledge your defeat The last in line: Ultimus Romanorum Evolution through revolution A frozen river, enough to tip an empire Stalingrad, Waterloo, Bastille, Poltava, Stamford Bridge, At Manzikert ‒ it all would end. Tough are times ahead With care you tread Before you know Out we need to bow Enjoy it while it lasts Soon forgotten in the past Our time here ended so fast Open your eyes Yourself apprise All empires find their demise The taller they are, the harder they fall The snowball Is on the roll Open your eyes Yourself apprise New powers are on the rise So strong is our faith, (in that) the world stays as is Until it hits, like shattering glass to bits How did this happen? How could this happen? How could the empire fall?
