Music and Lyrics

DISMAL TIMES
Music and Lyrics © 2009 J.Muxlow, S.Davidson, R.Holzner, M.Weiner, R.B.Pine, A.Spillman

fire's high pitch fork
gravel pit dark hole
see the light fade away
live for another day
cold steel in my hands
see the light fade away
moving through the rock and soil I see your face
screaming souls echo
from the sea of sinners
see the light fade away
dismal times here again
feel the freeze changing
see the light fade away
my love is lost
in these dismal times
my life is lost
in these dismal times
calling out
to my lord
will you save me again
reaching out
to my lord
can you save me again
can you save me again
wading through these dismal times...

LIFE CARRIES ON
Music and Lyrics © 2009 J.Muxlow, S.Davidson, R.Holzner, M.Weiner, R.B.Pine, A.Spillman

see his dying eyes as he falling down
world of doom in his mind as he cries out loud
licks his wounds to the bone
never more
looking up to the skies blood is cold shadows run inside
I carry on
I walk the storm
I carry on until my end
I carry on
I walk alone
I carry on until my last breath
sword of pain has the blood of the wounded souls
liars' eyes hide the truth never to be told
desert winds blowing high in the dead of night
counts his gold and his days before he dies
I carry on
I walk the storm
I carry on until my end
I carry on
I walk alone
I carry on until my last breath...

BURNING A SINNER
Written and originally performed by Witchfinder General

DEATH ON THE HIGH SEAS
Music and Lyrics © 2009 J.Muxlow, S.Davidson, R.Holzner, M.Weiner, R.B.Pine, A.Spillman

feel the cold wind blowing in
freeze my hands & skin
skies burning red
viking yell i roar
will this be my end
or just the start of the beginning
in the shores of sin wash off all my love
i must have Godspeed
oh, here it comes
steel rain coming down again
oh, here she blows
steel rain coming down again
never turn you back
don't close your eyes
before the tide washes you away
been so long since I've held you
I pray that I live another day
I see the storm ahead
the shores of sin wash off all of my love
I must have godspeed
oh, here it comes
steel rain coming down again
oh, here she blows
steel rain coming down again
on the sea for so long
don't know which way is home
everyday seems the same
wish i could make it home
see the sky turning red
hear the thunder ahead
count my days to the end
as i head into the core
see the grand mountains fall
crumble away
see the moon brighten the skies
we scream for our lives
the dragon whips his tail
we all drown again
the grand mountain falls
we crumble away
death on the high seas
destruction to my mind
the vision is burnt
the soul of the storm is gone
never to return
my fire that burned is gone
the serpent has won
the dragon whips his tail
we fall to the end
death on the high seas
