Ekhnaton (25th Anniversary / 2017 Remastered)

by Forthcoming Fire

See how the fire burns Know, the ages, they turn Here, you'll take my hand You will follow, you shall understand. See how the towers fall Hear how the false leaders call Feel the old order die Hear how the riches cry Fire, let it burn Fire, feel how it burns Now, fulfill the church with fire Look into the eyes of a liar Now, here comes the sun Soldiers, see them on the run This, this ain't a dream No adventure your TV screen So go, lose all your pride Find perception 'til the end of the night Dies Feuer brennt in meinem Verstand Brennt meiner Seele Brennt in meiner Hand Dies Feuer, mein heiliger Krieg Dies Feuer ist der Sonne Sieg Dies Feuer in einer kalten Welt Dies Licht, das Dunkel erhellt. Fire, let it burn. Fire, feel how it burns Feuer, lass' es brennen. Feuer, sieh wie es brennt Fühlst du wie es brennt?
