lirik lagu hammers of misfortune – an oath sworn in hell
long i have journeyed and far i have roamed
weary of searching, i rest by a stone
then without warning the earth swallowed me
falling through blackness forever it seemed
where is this i find myself now?
i hear a voice, familiar somehow…
“come hither, come hither” the voice cries to me
blind in the darkness then what do i see?
the vision of my dream
floating in liquid flame
silently beckons me
across this h-llish plain
with dragon’s wings she stands
blood-thirsty ax in hand…
what brings you to this deathly land?
what do you seek in the land of the d-mned?
searching and searching i finally find
give me the ax and let vengeance be mine!
make me a promise and so it shall be
swear on your life-blood and so it shall be
strike me a bargain you cannot betray
then you may have it and take it away
we’ll meet again and you’ll do what i ask
anything i wish no matter the task
this fire that burns inside
it must be satisfied
burns me to sleep at night
burns me at dawn’s first light
this oath i take and swear
then let the king beware
