The Illawen – On The Fall Of Avarice

download mp3

on the battlefields we’ll meet the rush
of any enemy
swift and brave we cleave our way
through the bourgeoisie

in decrepit cities of lost empire
the streets are overgrown
the wild has come to take it back
ruins are now our home

the sun sets
the dark embraces
the sun sets
the dark embraces

the wolves have come to live again
with them we coexist
any threats to the wilderness
will be brought down by our fist

capitalists and CEOs
lie dying at our feet
we took a stand and by our hand
their hearts no longer beat

we quest to destroy
defilers of the land
with swords on our backs
forged by our own hands
the ruins of your cities
all splintered away
the bones of your false gods
will rot and decay

the reverent and authoritant
won’t be missed at all
avarice and pacifists
will not survive the fall

one by one we hunt them down
those who thrive on greed
we’ll crack their heads and use their skulls
as flagons for our mead

the sun sets
the dark embraces
the sun sets
the dark embraces

warlords rise insidious
to claim the empty throne
but the power lies within the land
and not for one alone

armor forged from metal smelt
from your useless SUV
battle fierce with sword in hand
only the dead are free

we quest to destroy
defilers of the land
with swords on our backs
forged by our own hands
the ruins of your cities
all splintered away
the bones of your false gods
will rot and decay

[repeat chorus]
