lyrics

JUGGERNAUT

Imprisoned here alone in this wanderlust, pacing this cell waiting for the walls to fall.
Cast aside into this oblivion, this darkened hole where never the light will call.
And I feel the ages build upon me, as I await the opportunity to break the ties that bind; to slip the shackles the Architect has clad me in, to wither in isolation as a trophy for all time and rise away be delivered from this torment into the iron halls of battle, where the war cries never die.

Now this dark form shadow steps independent of light.
I will grant you egress for your salvation there is a price.
If you would dominate, I will facilitate, but I will have you know your soul is mine regardless, whether you fall and die or snuff out the Architect’s light there will be a sacrifice your soul is mine to harness.
I will have my prize.
You are not unstoppable. In time, my child, all things shall become mine. All things die.
Seal the deal and you may fight. Fly to face your foe! Show your might!

Chorus:
Embrace this destiny, power overdrive, pure energy!
Dominate history. With the will to end, to see the deal complete.
(Who are you to try?) The world shall bend to me.
(Dare you to defy!) Vengeance transcend eternity.

Now I stand before the walls the Architect has placed to show dominion, dominance over the world. Hammer blows crack through the foundation and usher me unto me a sight like I have never known.
A cityscape thriving metropolis a wondrous sight, a marvel of the world.
But ahead waiting stands the beast who bound me, foolishly unarmed he beckons me forth.
Come Juggernaut and see the world that I have built here in the absence of your pitiless soul.

I have made peace from this war washed desert waste.
Now can you see you were the only obstacle halting change.
In order to liberate, I had to dominate, bind the hands of fate, and steal the keys of progress.
To halt the end of all I trapped the unstoppable.
To bring light to the world, you I damned to darkness.
No! I am free. By death’s hands I am raised to take your life and end your reign tonight. You will die.
So take your hammer, Architect, and show this world that even gods can die.

Chorus:
Embrace this destiny, power overdrive, pure energy!
Dominate history. With the will to end, to see the deal complete.
(Who are you to try?) The world shall bend to me,
(Dare you to defy!) Vengeance transcend eternity.

Two tides clash down; impact so loud the air burns around them.
City walls and towers fall, machines rise from the soil, the Juggernaut surrounded.
He sees the Architect’s machines and drops his weapon to the ground.
One final blow the scythe of death reaps his soul.
In defeat one last word is spoken to the Architect: “Coward.”
