Track Name: Battle of the Cross
Fire in the streets
A plague across the land
They terrorize by a master's hand

The dead walk,
monsters from the ground
Slay the weak
Hate unbound

Does the reaper aid here?
In agony
We hide in fear

Call on the whip
And the family
Centuries old
Holy dynasty

Call the dynasty

A symphony of evil cries
Forcing my cursed bloodline
We will fight till the day we die

A fearless task, undertaken
A holy order mistaken
A battle of the cross will
Slay this lord of death.

A symphony of evil cries
Forcing my cursed bloodline
We will fight till the day we die

A symphony of evil cries
Forcing my cursed bloodline
Eternally locked to fight for all of time
Fighting 'til the day
