lyrics

Verse
Black crowds of crows gather on
the castle spires
and croak a hoarse and unremembered song.

Chorus
One last ride.
The oath of blood can't be denied.
High Iron King, although you've tried.
With your birth the seal was signed.

Verse
The end comes to all, each soldier and thane.
The bloodiest wars
are fought within the mind, within the vein.

Chorus

Breakdown
'Come with us Iron King'.
The grave birds sing.
'Iron King,
Raven wing and feather'.

'Come with us Iron King'.
The grave birds sing.
'Iron King,
Raven wing and feather'.

'Come with us Iron King'.
The grave birds sing.
'Iron King,
You've fought your final war'.

Outro Verses
When the king is cold and still
They put his body on a hero's shield.
Through the fields of his youth
they take him to the river's bay.

On his boat one final ride.
The wind will sweep the rain into their eyes.
The heavens cry at the side
of the son whose father drifts away.

He will light the arrow
and he will string the bow.
He's pulling back his elbow,
one day he'll let it go.
Through clouded eyes he sees him,
His father robed in fire.
One day he knows he'll be him,
then he'll meet the pyre.
