Sword, The - Hammer Of Heaven Lyrics




Gather all the young ones
And listen as we tell
Of days of old when the earth was whole
Before the hammer fell
Once there were cities
Of steel and glass and stone
Where now lie only ruins
Of dust and ash and bone

The people of the old world
Growing fat and blind
Exalted thieves, fools and liars
Ignoring every sign
Then came days of darkness
Then came nights of flame
They knew their world was ending
And they wept in fear and shame

Hammer of heaven!
Hammer of heaven!
Hammer of heaven!

Now we few remain
To keep the fires alight
All is as it should be
All is set to rights
Now there are no cities
No tyrants and no slaves
The old world lies in ruins
A new one in its place

Hammer of heaven!
Hammer of heaven!
Hammer of heaven!

Gather all the young ones
And make them listen well
Of days of old when the earth was whole
Before the hammer fell

Hammer of heaven!
Hammer of heaven!
Hammer of heaven!
