lyrics

DIRGE OF GLORY

Legend spoke of a land where all men are as kings, land of war and glory.
Where waters run red with blood and golden hordes await, to be claimed in victory.
And in this land of myth and lore, waiting upon a distant shore, there is a beast that guards a door that binds the land of evermore.
And we sail to slay this foe and bring it to its knees, and we will not fail.
To raise steel against this mighty legendary beast, raise anchor and set sail!
Across the seas into the cold toward the sunset with dreams of gold, we ride the wind, strong and bold, ready to meet fate and take what is owed.

Into the breach, the gods will speak, their voice the waves to guide the way.
We row with might through day and night until we find destiny!

Chorus:
We sail for fame, for victory, to hear the bard song and bask in glory.
If we shall die we will know peace if our tale echoes through history.
And when we die we shall know peace, if our tale echoes through history.

Through the fog we see the shores of our eternity.
Something lies beneath.
Our ship is thrown to and fro and smashes into the beach.
Raise blades charge into the reach!
On the cliffs the beast awaits, staring down with the eyes of fate.
Unimpressed and unafraid, laughing it turns away.
It dares to mock us after all this way that we have come.
Our picks dig into the gorge.
We reach the top of the cliff, the beast beckons us on, and we race toward the scourge! As the first wave reaches the foe, they are smashed into the mud, showered by blood from head to toe.
Our resolve is somewhat undone.

We stand alone, far from our home, against a beast who knows no defeat.
And still we fight through day and night.
We may be beat, but will not retreat!

We rush one by one to bring the giant down, fight the setting sun, cast fire on the ground, slice away in vain, pay no mind to pain, suffer for history, shed the chains of mortality victory in story!

Chorus:
We sail for fame, for victory, to hear the bard song and bask in glory.
If we shall die we will know peace if our tale echoes through history.
And when we die we shall know peace, if our tale echoes through history.
