ICED EARTH lyrics - Dracula

ICED EARTH
"Dracula"

Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in destiny?
True love may come only once in a thousand lifetimes...

I too have loved...they took her from me
I prayed for her soul, I prayed for her peace

When I close my eyes
I see her face, it comforts me
When I close my eyes
Memories cut like a knife

The blood is the life, and Christ I defy
My sworn enemy...birth of a new creed

Is this my reward for serving God's own war?
The blood I've spilled for faith fulfilled
To damn her, a disgrace, you spit back in my face
I served you loyally, and you spew blasphemy

I avenge with darkness, the blood is the life
The Order of the Dragon, I feed on human life

There are far worse things awaiting man than death
Come taste what I have seen
I'm spreading my disease
I will feed upon His precious child
The human race will bleed, they will serve my need

I avenge with darkness, the blood is the life
The Order of the Dragon, I feed on human life

I am the dragon of blood, a relentless prince of pain
Renouncing God of His throne
My blood is forever stained

For true love, I shall avenge
I defy the creed that damned her
