Blood and Souls

This song is about Elric and Stormbringer. It is about power and capability and superiority and relationships. Thus it is closely related to my previous songs Forever Terrorized and The Eye and the Hand. It is also kind of a sibling to Alone. Thanks again to Michael Moorcock for his wonderful works particulary on the Eternal Champion.

The lyrics:

blood and souls

didn’t have a choice, did I?
oh fate has chosen me
to bear the sword
of black destiny

now I’m forever bound
to the demon I found
my life’s sustained
by the souls that I take

resistance in vain
all your souls I claim
blood and souls I cry
one thousand die
but who’s in control
am I just a tool?
blood and souls I cry
one thousand die

another spirit taken
sucked into cold steel

suffering, rejoice
drunk with ecstasy

when I’m done
I’ve left everything behind
enemies and friends and kin
all suffering alike

resistance in vain
all your souls I claim
blood and souls I cry
one thousand die
my friends pay the prize
the darkest sacrifice
blood and souls I cry
one thousand die

blood and souls I cry
everyone dies
