The God-King

This song was created for Game of Bands round 208 : "Desert"

Lyrics:

Across this tormented land, across these blasted sands
Every step weighing my soul
Under the barren sky, Horus has turned his eye
This evil claims me for its own
What a fool am I, for ancient curses to deny
In the name of greed, what have I unleashed?
From Duat I have been observed
Taking relics from the King interred

Break thy names, and bury them
From beneath the shifting sands
The Underworld he defies
The God King does arise

The cobra coils to strike, the sun burns cold with spite
I feel his presence drawing near
Shadows they hiss and spit, and I am scarab bit
Cast into a realm of fear
What a fool am I, gold from dead hands I pry
In the name of greed, what have I unleashed?
Ammit's grin of dagger sharp teeth
The field of reeds is no place for thieves

Break thy names, and bury them
From beneath the shifting sands
The Underworld he defies
The God King does arise

A reckoning for my desire
Cast into the Lake of Fire

(solo? SOLO!)

Break thy names, and bury them
From beneath the shifting sands
The Underworld he defies
The God King does arise
[Exit]
