Lyric "Written On The Walls"

On the night the darkness fell
Across the naked land
A Demon force was summoned up
From the bowels of Hell
The stench of death grew thick that night
We knew it was the end

We run to find a place to hide
The land was raped and bare
The wind, it blows an eerie cold
A fog that never lifts
Their tears will flood the land tonight
And the thunder was drowned by screams

As I lay here, freezing veins of ice
What will be for me?
What will be the price?
Is it what they say?
Is it written on the walls?
Why can't we stop this shattered world's fate?
Why didn't we try at all?

Armageddon, town life is gone
We knew it was our way
Written down so long ago
Implanted in our minds
Our fathers told us of this Hell
They read it on the walls
It's written on the walls
It's written on the walls

The frightened children know not why
And no-one will explain
We've brought it all upon ourselves
An ending to this world
Forgiveness for your souls you pray
But it's written on the walls
The walls, the walls
