Hawkwood
Papal despots wielding worldly power
Reign of madness from St.Peter's throne
Secret plots of underworld tacticians
Interdiction deployed from Rome

Danger money paid by fear for safety
To men at arms of brigandry defined
Few & far between are worthy fighters
Valor & chivalry are now misaligned

A mercenary enterprise endeavor
Ambassador to the papal court in Rome

Hail Sir Hawkwood the holiest avenger
Immortalized forever, immortalized beneath the dome

Within the holy city's sacred chambers
Fate of nations maliciously designed
Holy money fuels the blessed armies
Military madness in an age refined

Savior of the Florentine republic
Mercenary Hawkwood's name divine
Valiant hero of the highest order
His armies gleaming armor will forever shine

A mercenary enterprise endeavor
Ambassador to the papal court in Rome
Hail Sir Hawkwood the holiest avenger
Immortalized beneath the dome

Hail Sir Hawkwood the holiest avenger
Immortalized forever, immortalized beneath the dome

To the guise of faith, campaigns of greed
Holy threats will plant the seed
In the name of god war plans are drawn
The republic kneels to the mighty brawn?

Papal despots wielding worldly power
Reign of madness from St.Peter's throne
Secret plots of underworld tacticians
Interdiction deployed from Rome

A mercenary enterprise endeavor
Ambassador to the papal court in Rome

A mercenary enterprise endeavor
Ambassador to the papal court in Rome

Hail Sur Hawkwood the holiest avenger
Immortalized beneath the dome
A mercenary enterprise endeavor
Ambassador to the papal court in Rome

Hail Sir Hawkwood the holiest avenger
Immortalized forever
 
 
Curse of the Black Prince
Born to royalties order
Murderous tenets he would amass of hellfire forged
Enemies fear the curse of the black Prince

Cavalier killers surround him
Armored specter, demon black
The death hungry prince
Brings relentless assault & attack

To his destiny like his bloodline before
Born to savor the sound of the battlefield roar
Ordained victor of Crecy
Bloodied steel an endless sea

Royal lord of knightly hell
Hear the death impending knell

Curse of the black prince royalty be damned
Curse of the black prince by merciless command
Curse of the black prince savior of a warring race
Curse of the black prince pike to the sword & a sword to mace

Thousands of soldiers surround him
He's fearless at Gehenna's gate
His father & fathers before him
Accepting their god given fate

Metal effigy entombed beneath the cathedral of St.Paul
Slaughtering demon of Limoges to eternal he has been called
Kill the bastard of Marcile
One less traitor one less lie

He hath no master to convince
From earl to duke & duke to prince

Curse of the black prince royalty be damned
Curse of the black prince by merciless command
Curse of the black prince savior of a warring race
Curse of the black prince pike to the sword & sword to mace

Curse of the black prince royalty be damned
Curse of the black prince by merciless command
Curse of the black prince curse of the black prince
 
 
Hill of Crosses
Defying all destruction for over seven hundred years
Suffering for freedom despite the endless fear
Surviving persecution in the depth of eternal night
In defense of true faith for the trinity they'll fight

In the wind you'll hear the whispers of the fallen spirits mourn
In the night you'll see the specters on the hill they'll be reborn
Denying all disruptions despite a heightened fear
In defense of the truth they found the strength to bear

Take me to the hill of crosses
Heads bowed to the holy site
Take me to the hill of crosses
In the dark you can see the light
Take me to the hill of crosses
Heads bowed to the holy site
Take me to the hill of crosses
In the dark you can see, in the dark you can see the light

Surviving persecution in the depth of eternal night
In defense of true faith for the trinity they'll fight
Defying all destruction for over seven hundred years
Suffering for freedom despite the endless fear

Take me to the hill of crosses
Heads bowed to the holy site
Take me to the hill of crosses
In the dark you can see, in the dark you can see,
In the dark you can see the light

Hill of crosses hill of crosses
Hill of crosses hill of crosses
Hill of crosses hill of crosses
 
 
Sword in the Stone
Of thinner noble blood than most would like to bear
This wayward scoundrel faltered through life without a care
A knight untamed be sauntered o'er hills of Tuscany
His disposition vicious he'd find his destiny
Intent to bring salvation archangel would appear
Sir Galgano nevermore would be the harbinger of fear

Declaring true seclusion in darkened solitude
Enduring critics ridicule, so blindly deemed a fool
Wolves the only family owned
Bound to serve his faith alone
Form his chains his soul has flown

Sword in the stone, sword in the stone, stone on the grave
A life turned holy, a life turned holy from a noble knave
Sword in the stone, sword in the stone, stone on the grave
Bound to the hill, bound to the hill & the legend saved

Alas appeared another specter a holy vision
An order from above that gave the knight his mission
Abandon all your pleasures, the mighty did demand
Only if my sword would cut through stone on command

Galgano drew his sword in arrogant defiance
A miracle the only way he'd forge with god's alliance
His steel did strike the ancient stone with sheer ferocity
The sword was thrust to the hilt to remain eternally

Sword in the stone, sword in the stone, stone on the grave
A life turned holy, a life turned holy from a noble knave
Sword in the stone, sword in the stone, stone on the grave
Bound to the hill, bound to the hill & the legend saved
Sword in the stone, sword in the stone, stone on the grave
A life turned holy, a life turned holy from a despot knave

Sword in the stone
Sword in the stone
Sword in the stone
Sword in the stone
 
 
Merchants of Force
We are the knights of insurrection
We are the purveyors of fatalistic rites
We are the lords of revolution
We are the masters of collusion in the night

We are the saints of malediction
We are the sentinels of enigmatic stealth
We are the kings of interdiction
We are marauders of nether worldly wealth

We are the merchants of force
Dealing in the currency of destiny & war
We are the merchants of force
The burning battlegrounds of glory will endure

We are the prophets of damnation
We are conveyors of futuristic fear
We are the denizens of darkness
We are the spirits of chaos drawing near

We are the masters of defiance
We are avengers of malice misaligned
We are the sentinels of history
We are the watchers of society's decline

We are the merchants of force
Dealing in the currency of destiny & war
We are the merchants of force
The burning battlegrounds of glory will endure
We are the merchants of force
Dealing in the currency of destiny & war

We are the merchants of force
The burning battlegrounds of glory will endure
We are the merchants of force
Dealing in the currency of destiny & war
We are the merchants of force
The burning battlegrounds of glory will endure
Merchants of force
 
 
Bloodlust Quest
Hear the distant bell tower's warning knell
The White Company will come to unleash hell
Summon the strongest, bear weapons best
The White Company is on another...
Armor white like some sinister saintly guise
The White Company hunts not just those that they despise
Sir Hawkwood leads with dauntless deadly rage
This savage baneful force so hungry to engage

Men of arms of most deadly fighting skill
Soldiers of fortune bought & sold to burn & kill
Torn from service to Marquis de Montferrant
The company stands restless, no patience for detente

Their souls burn eternal on history's funeral pyre
Their legacies disrupted by pillage, plague & fire
These city states in perpetual upheaval
The people bear the fight of good & evil

Bloodlust quest, bloodlust quest
Bloodlust quest, bloodlust quest

People live in constant shadow of his threat
There's no turning back once Hawkwood's mind is set
Paid in gold no guarantee to satisfy their needs
A lust for war & blood, the feast on which they feed

Hear the distant bell tower's warning knell
The White Company will come to unleash hell

Summon the strongest, bear weapons best
The White Company is on another...

Hear the distant bell tower's warning knell
The White Company will come to unleash hell

Summon the strongest, bear weapons best
The White Company is on another bloodlust quest

Bloodlust quest, bloodlust quest
Bloodlust quest, bloodlust quest
Bloodlust quest, bloodlust quest
Bloodlust quest, bloodlust quest
 
 
Tartarus
The mighty falling anvil is the test of this design
Molten metal rivers seal the fate of once divine
Walls of bronze surrounding all imprisoned by decree
The three fold layer of blackest night beyond, as vast as the sea
Guardian at the gates of bronze is Hecatoncheires
One hundred arms & fifty heads, their lethal weaponry
Eternal condemnation is the sentence handed down
In the deepest depths of Hades forever they are bound

The titans forever condemned
Sentenced to their netherworld
The titans for nine days descend
Descending into Tartarus, Tartarus, Tartarus, the universal hell

The battlefield is now afire, amassed with weaponry
Colliding armies fighting under blazing heraldry
Armored gods prepare their holy armies glory bound
Eleven million metal soldiers scream their warning sound

The titans forever condemned
Sentenced to their netherworld
The titans for nine days descend
Descending into Tartarus. Tartarus, Tartarus, the universal hell

Destruction's toll arising, achieved by any means
This cataclysmic battle, of which mankind's never seen
 
 
Metalfire
From across the sea, we led a new found calling
Within our hearts our anthems cane to be
By our own hands we unleashed electric fury
By our own will we forged metal destiny

Souls are on fire burning bright for the world to see
The fire of metal burns in the hearts of you & me
All across the land, we'll spread the metal holy
With weapons strung, we'll set new spirits free

With passioned blood, our message fast delivered
In metal faith is forged new destiny
Souls are on fire burning bright for the world to see
The fire of metal burns in the hearts of you & me

Oh metalfire, may thou burn forever
Eternal flame, burn bright forevermore
Oh metalfire, may thou burn forever
Ponding metal hearts, may you soar forever free

From across the sea, we lead a new found calling
Within our hearts our anthems came to be
By our own hands we unleash electric fury
By our own will we forge metal destiny

Oh metalfire, may thou burn forever
Eternal flame, burn bright forevermore
Oh metalfire, may thou burn forever
Pounding metal hearts, may you soar forever free

Oh meatfire
Oh metalfire
 
 
Victory
(Instrumental)
 
 
Barabbas
The time is now, peace is the lie
The only true course is to revolt & defy
The Roman dogs are raping the land
Judea, the people, they just don't understand

They murder loved ones by sword & the flame
They have no restrictions to torture & maim

They'll die by my hand, as sure as my name is Barrabbas

Courage is needed for the cause so true
For the Roamns are many,& alas, we are so few
I'll take my legions of zealots a field
To fight to the death 'til the Romans finally yield

Take up the sword, throw down the staff
Make Rome rue the day the crossing of our path

And let them cry out in pain in the wrath of Barabbas

Flee to the mountains to plan our attack
Commit body & soul, for there must be no turning back
Forge weapons of iron in the caves down below
To compete with a mighty & well armed foe

Jailed for murder & sentenced to die
To be hung on a cross when the sun is high in the sky
The Nazarene takes my place for me
And thanks to the people & God, I'm once again free

Back to the army to regroup them fast
Our war will roar in a fiery blast
The Romans will pay, for they've not heard the last of Barabbas
 
 
War of the Eight Saints
From what evil place has this Englishman come from?
His name Acud the Hawk evokes for boding
Why must we be pawns in the church's chess game?
Our hard earned livelihoods reduced to shame

The people hear the holy spirit calling
All they need to hear is the good lord's name
Sons & fathers on the battlefield falling
At what expense do we kneel in Pope Gregory's name?

Where must our good faith & allegiances lie?
An oath to the papacy ensures your demise
They plot & conspire like a childhood game
Conceal your affairs & protect your good name

Why must we stand so helplessly by?
As warring marauders corrupt & defy
Soldiers for hire, they'll protect for a price
Trust not their honor as bribes will suffice

Whoa ohh ohh ohh
War of the Eight Saints, tyranny's disdain
Whoa ohh ohh ohh
War of the Eight Saints, piously insane

How must our plight be resolved
When spies in our midst endanger our cause?
When will those in true power stand
And fulfil their duty to honor our land?

Solutions are few & cupboards are bare
Now the good people must conquer their fear
Bloodshed gives life to the battlefield sown
The citizen warrior has come to be known

Whoa ohh ohh ohh
War of the Eight Saints, tyranny's disdain
Whoa ohh ohh ohh
War of the Eights Saints, piously insane

Whoa ohh ohh ohh
War of the Eight Saints, tyranny's disdain
Whoa ohh ohh ohh
War of the Eight Saints, piously insane
Whoa ohh ohh ohh
War of the Eight Saints, War of the Eight Saints
