about

This is another one of those songs where James just had everything musically necessary to put an awesome song together. We arranged the song in a night and the lyrics were written in a hilariously entertaining van ride to Detroit. Riding in a van to a show is one of the best parts in being in a band with your friends.

lyrics

Merlin casts
A mage's eye
On Eagles soaring in the sky.
Lightning bolts
On mountain High.
Thunder cracks mute distant cries.

A piper pipes
A piping tune
Far beneath a miller's moon
Marching toward
The ancient runes
Blind to their impending doom

Rivers boil. women scream.
Laymen toil. wizards dream.
Witches brew. Warlocks, too
They'll be blown away (death from above)

Oceans crash
On foamy shores
Vikings cast their mighty oars.
Rivers run
With the blood and gore
Of all who fear the coming lord

Rivers boil. women scream.
Laymen toil. wizards dream.
Witches brew. Warlocks, too
They'll be blown away (death from above)

Gozer casts a ghastly gaze
On villagers he set ablaze.
Gods are choking in the haze
Enslaved in their end of days.

Gozer casts a ghastly gaze
On villagers he set ablaze.
Gods are choking in the haze
Enslaved in their end of days.
