lyrics

will you stand with me at the gallows

if I stand with you on the street

shoulder to shoulder bare knuckles and bone

its time we sharpened our teeth



they tell me I am a madman

they want to see me behind bars

they say I hear voices in the dark of the night

from the old ones lost far beyond stars



so tell me oh opulent daughter

tell me great son of the damned

when babylon rises up from the dunes

will you bury your head in the sand


Chorus


I saw the old world burn to ashes,

watched great cities sink to the deeps

I waited alone in the ruins of time

with dead men's secrets to keep


Chorus



so tell me one more time

tell me brave soldier again

how your empire means so much to the world

that it's rein should never end



will you stand with me at the gallows

if I stand with you on the street

the time has come to rip tendon from bone

to tear their flesh with our teeth



will you stand with me at the gallows

if I stand with you on the street

shoulder to shoulder bare knuckles and bone
