lyrics

DRAGONRIDER

The earth moves. The ground shakes. From the deep the beast begins to wake.
Our cities fall, powerless to war.
With miasmatic breath, it roars and the plague is loosed on the world to corrupt all.
Mankind will fall. The end of civilization is at hand.
We stand side by side to see it rise.
Wings pushing cyclones it leaves the land.

Black wings of dread, harbor the end, as flame spills down to burn the land.
This scorched earth - ashen waste. Miles of carbon husks fill the scape.

Chorus
And with his sword held high the dragon rider descends.
Down from the mountains of madness to bring terror to an end.
If he should fall and die, eternal night claims the land.

Down from the sky, we hear a cry, as the rider soars on wings of death.
And as he flies, the clouds divide, parted by this great and fiery breath.
Out from legend he has flown to return home, from the unknown.
Summoned by those who he swore to protect.
And now he flies toward the fight, on a beast whose wings beat the rhythm of death.

With ancient strength and great speed, the rider and his dragon slam into the beast!
He thrusts his blade into its eye and is thrown toward the earth by a mighty swipe!

Chorus
And with his sword held high the dragon rider descends.
Down from the mountains of madness to bring terror to an end.
If he should fall and die, eternal night claims the land.

As he falls down, a massive roar drowns out all sound.
He is undone, as black wings block out the sun.

Falling down, the rider strikes the ground!

To the crater where he lies, his dragon lands by his side.
Upon his back the rider climbs and they return to the sky!

Like a phoenix rising from the ash, the rider ascends and collides with meteor force into the beast.
Straight through the hide the rider flies, slicing through the black heart of the fiend.
He emerges as the colossus crumbles!
Dust and bone, the miasma dissolves into peace.
The monstrous force returned now unto death, and the rider returns into myth.
