desert rain lyrics – iced earth

the sympathy in my mind is growing cold
life is like the burning sand so i’m told
the time is coming near when solitude appears
take the chains of oppression away

through the sands of time i’m marching on
the blistering rays of hate strengthen me
the violent m*ss has shown my destiny
does all of this justify the rage inside

[chorus:]
the desert rain is changing me
it’s called on me to rise

a world of hate and malice
yes, that’s the way it seems
the hour gl*ss is running out
the serpent rides with me

we shall rise and conquer
crushing all that’s weak
all that’s light is burning out
the serpent rides with me

[repeat chorus]
