The serpent's tongue, a kiss of death
One last caress, that chokes your breath
An easy prey, serves its destiny
One restless soul, feeds the carnivore

I am the one and only one
Now it is time for a statement
Bring me the head of this charade
Give us the leader of resistance – Now

You are my shadow from long ago
(When) bridges were burning fast
Like a lifeboat adrift offshore
Surrendered to the waves

The more you excavate and search for truth
The more pointless it seems to be
From a distant cry to the people's roar
This is your wake-up call

So you carry the flame
And preserve to the end
To protect what is sane
Until we meet all again

This is not our fate, nor what we're looking for
A big bad wolf, knocking at our door
How could this be, where should one go
Tired of constant fear, it turns us into stone

Make a stand


from Imperium, released November 30, 2018
