templar’s arise lyrics – cathedral

our 13th century ceremony – a vile & wicked rite
a virgin child we took that night, her blood for eternal life
local peasants tortured us – another daughter sacrificed
with flaming torches in our eyes – our bodies they burned alive
500 years of darkness – entombed devoid of sight
the crowds came out to mock us on this carnival night
clowns & dolls of templars ridicule our sacred cult
the blind dead have arisen – so now your blood be spilt
rise! rise! blind dead arise! rise!
as fireworks light up your sky – your jolly music plays
beside our monastery ruins, we’re rising from the grave
decomposed monk warriors with swords enter your town
riding spectral horses – in crimson seas you drown
rise! rise! templars arise! rise!
