lyrics

The Kingdom! The savior will save us
The Kingdom! The savior will be our guiding light
For weeks now, it seems like we’ve traveled through limbo
And at last we see her shine, Constantinople!

Sinners and the saintly will kneel!
Sinners and the saintly will halt for Alexios
The saints reign from heaven
The saints!
Swear him oaths of fealty and he’ll open up the way

Cresting, the waves of crusaders
Spilling down from off the hill
Resting, the Queen of all Cities
Swear Alexios your word and then be on your way

Expanses we traversed, starvation
The desert, the hunger — it drove us to our breaking point
The horses were cut and, little by little, the poor things were drained until one day they collapsed to the ground

Sinners and the saintly will march!
Sinners and the saintly will go marching to their fate
The saints reign from heaven
The saints!
Spirit and the body unite when pushed to the edge

Left behind Constantinople
We swore to return what was theirs
Blessed be the Queen of all Cities
For all the lands and people lost, lost to Seljuk Turks

Far off in the distance, I see Nicaea
Far off in the distance, perhaps we’ll find relief

Fortress in shrouds
Shimmers on the lake
Head in the clouds
Coming down the hill

Long did I seek for a path to salvation
Never could I wash off the scales from my poor eyes
Long did I struggle to free myself from my chains
Never could I break off the bindings of my guilt and shame


Sinners and the saintly will fall
Sinners and the saintly are equals in the great abyss
The saints reign from heaven
The saints!
When I take my last breath, I hope I can laugh and smile

But how can I live with this burden?
How can I ease my heart before I die?
Grace to the ones we have plundered
I will never sleep the same
Grant me healing rain

Rain now
I will never be alone
Weeping, trembling at the throne
Golden eyes stare back at me

Guitar Solo 1: Tony
Guitar Solo 2: Michael
