lyrics

Cold! Smash the walls to dust and bring descension dark and gray
Build it up and tear it down again
Decay! Bridges fall to rust and institutions rot away
Nothing lasts forever in the end

Darkness falls
The tribes are gathered
War horns call
To raise the hammers

Shadows creeping in by night
Begin the dance of death, beneath the firelight
Centuries of suffering
All repaid in fire; let freedom have its reign

[CHORUS]
Night follows day, day follows night
Seasons will change, nations will rise and fight
The sacrifice to reach the end
(no sacrifice, no victory!)
The Labyrinth will fall
(We stand! We fight!)
But you can’t hold back the night

Trapped! Blackness, no escape, you’re lost within the maze
Creeping closer, death is in the air
Light will never reach you here, civilization turned its back
Blow it all to hell to get away

Darkness falls
The tribes are gathered
War horns call
To raise the hammers

[CHORUS]

Stand for what you don’t believe, and you
Fall down at your master’s feet, but you
Give your soul to never see that you
Stand on the back of another
Fight! The monster smiles on you, and says
Kill what’s trying to break through, but you
Die! The monster turns on you
And hunts you down to devour

What’s meant to be (an illusion to see)
Designing your perfect society
You give and you take away
But the clock hands won’t stay

Kill the beast and smash the maze, the watchers now become the prey
Only death and chaos built to last
Fall! Foundations cracked and burned, live free to die another day
Seen this all before, iconoclast

Darkness falls
The tribes are gathered
War horns call
To raise the hammers

[CHORUS]
