Nemesis Divine (Trial of the Gods)
Music & Lyrics: Thord KlarstrŲm

"The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom
all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire;
there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. And then shall the righteous shine forth
as the sun in the kingdom of their Father"

Ė Matthew (13.41, 43)

"Remove the prisoner, he will die tomorrow"

Solo: Thord

Deep down in the cellar, where no sun has ever shined
Candlelights casts shadows on the walls
The stony walls are whispering tales of death and pain
And the silent screams of souls lost in vain

In this cell in godís hell Iím waiting for the dawn
Awaiting my final day in life
Am I really marked as food for the gods?
Or is this all just a wicked game

Solo: Thord

The night is over and itís time to watch me die
The priest has taken my last rites
And the streets are full of kinsmen, shouting out for pain
As the magistrate slowly raise his hands

Welcome all you lost souls to this trial of the gods
Welcome to our nemesis divine
We are warriors of faith, protectors of his ways
Welcome to this auto-da-fť

Solo: Thord

Bleeding on a rack of chains
Crying just to ease my pain
My life is slowly fading away
And I feel the madness grows
As they lead me to the stake
Telling me "embrace your fate"

The purifying fire licks my wounded soul
This is my nemesis divine
And with all that I got left I scream out for revenge
And suddenly my mind goes blank

Like a phoenix I am rising towards the blackened sky
Witness my nemesis divine
And I spread my burning wings for one final strike
The reckoning day is here for you
