lyrics

And the blade struck true,
And the wielder did run,
His mission accomplished,
The enemy stung.

The victim looked at his seeping wound,
Was barely a scratch but at once he knew.

And his men turned as they heard the cry,
Their general attacked behind battle lines.

And witnessed what could never be,
A hero, a legend, brought to his knees...

...Colours...
...Sixteen colours...
...And the sun feels so much colder...
...with the truth...

...the veins are filled with fire...
...as the blood runs through the water...
...and then you...

..snap to,
and he hit the ground,
The faithful gathered all around.

They raised their prayers up to decry,
And disbelieved that he could die.

Then their lord stood with a defiant roar,
But lacking a cure, he fell to the floor,

So the magi called on mystic aid,
One chance to break the assassin's blade.

...running...
...always running...
...As the land touches the skyline …
...now diffuse...

...the order..
...and disorder...
(One People one nation)
...and the sacrifice and slander...
(I will be your man of thunder)
...still undo...

...The patterns...
(On the west wall, we are free)
..spin with answers...
(On the west wall, Colognoste)
...The clocks are ticking backwards...
...and then you and true and rue and rune and ruin and rare and air and there...
(I told you before and I mean it!)

(...The planning...)
The sentence of an early grave.
(..And missed chances...)
The toll of the assassin's blade.
(...and the dreaming is awakening...)
...and no use...

...Colours...
...Sixteen colours...
(I will not die of this)
...And the sun feels so much colder...
(I will not die of poison)
...with the truth...
(I love you)
