lyrics

The throne, vacated. Taken unlawfully. The Crown, degraded. Burdened by Christian greed. Disparaged insurgency, led by a mortal creed. Empire, eroding. Revolt brought on by Cardinals’ pleas. “Dear God Almighty, have you empowered thee?” A church mislead by vengeance, edict they would not heed. Treason destroyed this kingdom; King could not save his Queen. Led blindly by illusion, peasants would rip them clean. The battle. Forsaken. Betrayed their monarchy. With haste they spilled our blood in service to country. Their eyes, their eyes, the eyes of conflagration. Led a burning passage t’wards a distant revelry. My right, as the true heir. Futile war, to reclaim the throne. The fight, for imperial rule. Futile war, to reclaim the throne. Come forth, you coward. Your battle ends with me. Drawn swords to split this country, regal blood you’ve split with glee. Treaties were burned, injustice, scorned by ascendancy. You fought for reason, of which your God did not agree. “Dear God Almighty, have you forsaken thee?” A church mislead by vengeance, edict they would not heed. Treason destroyed this kingdom; stripped of supremacy. It fell by evil’s burden, collapsed the life that cultured me. My sword will carve salvation for my fallen king. A dying retribution, forming new monarchy. My shield is battle-hardened, stained with blood of enemies. I have one true solution, for this catastrophe. My right, as the true heir. Futile war, to reclaim the throne. The fight, for imperial rule. Futile war, to reclaim the throne. Reclaim my fucking THRONE. The Throne!
