ICED EARTH lyrics - Something Wicked (Part 1)

ICED EARTH
"Something Wicked (Part 1)"

I can see clearly now
A painful vision indeed
An attempt at genocide, 12,000 years of pain
The human thirst for dominance
Leads them to Setian ground
The gravest of all threats now exists
All galaxies could suffer
Imagine the consequences if man does succed
The universe and all the lives
Will suffer evermore
Like a virus man will spread
Through the time continuum
It's a power they can't comprehend
A power we must secure

So heed my word
A prophecy that's bleak and haunting
Acceptance not fear
Will pave the way for life returning
The elder forseen
In sacred flames our world is burning
Yet more things are clear
By grand design, punishment unfolding

Faith in the prophecy
We'll take this tragedy, unite as one
Fate, shall mete no sympathy
Something Wicked feeds, thy will be done

Ten thousand souls
One for every year of framing
One of thirteen the high priest and
The twelve that council
Charged with our tome
Retribution for our loved ones suffering
In secret they'll meet
A global network that endures for centuries

Faith in the prophecy
We'll take this tragedy, unite as one
Fate, shall mete no sympathy
Something Wicked feeds, thy will be done
