lyrics

Fire swept across the roofs at dawn
The woman's screams deafening amidst the howling of the dogs
Awakened in terror
Blade in hand he ran through the streets
Slaughter through the mists he saw

Striking left through the choked alleyway
Towards
A pinnacle of iron above the flames
A spire above the smoke

A child consumed by the flames, writhing in agony
A god-fearing man lynched from the statuary
The gates torn asunder, between the mighty stone
A pool of blood spreads from within, down to the gravel below

Fire swept across the roofs at dawn
A fragile form lifeless in his arms
Through choking tears he screamed as he fell to his knees
Enclaved by reliquary

The sounds of cruelty faded into naught
The fires slowly fell
Wreathed in ash he finally rose
With eyes that held that inferno in which he was reborn

An avatar of vengeance and discord
Destined for loss and for tragedy
He chased the butchers of that hateful dawn
A vision for blood alone

At nightfall he reached their encampment
Where torchlight and war drums filled a narrow gorge
He hefted his blade and lifted a flaming brand
With singular mind

Striding through the blackness
He struck aside the guard
Throwing a torch into the canvas
Spread fire throughout the savage horde

Arrows streaked across the night sky
As he ran for his life
