Fire Alone (song lyrics)
« on: January 03, 2018, 05:54:21 PM »
Always thought the Warriors series lends itself well to power metal, so I decided to write a song about it for my band! As the genre goes this is probably the most stereotypical thing I've ever written, but I'm pleased with how it turned out. It's in F# minor (but still upbeat and cheery-sounding despite the minor key), and in my mind it sounds roughly like a cross between Gloryhammer's 'Universe on Fire' and Hammerfall's 'Fury of the Wild' with Noora from Battle Beast on vocals.

Also, I'm not sure whether you're allowed to use quotes from books in songs without asking permission first so might have to attempt to get in touch with the Erins if that is likely to be an issue :P Anyway, hope you enjoy!


Fire Alone

Turn your deep blue eyes skyward
There's a message in the night
A missive of a flame
Whispered in stellar light
Turn your wandering gaze downward
There's a villain in the midst
Tooth and claw will rage
Your name has made the list

--

We are bound by ancient blood
Celestial prophecy
Tonight the stars foretell
His flames will set us free

--

CHORUS:

From the tiger's fury
From the rising storm
From the scourge of the city
Fire alone will save us
From the pack who hunt us
From a culture's death
From a broken tyrant
Fire alone will save us

--

Hear the forest air calling
For it breathes inside of you
The fabric of your past
Forever torn in two
A leader at the helm falling
To a traitor now exposed
The dogs of war unleashed
A deadly bloodstream flows

--

We are cats of marsh and moor
The wild runs through our veins
Finding peace in full moon's light
But the battleground remains

--

(Repeat Chorus)

--

(Spoken) "Four will become two. Lion and tiger will meet in battle, and blood will rule the forest..."

--

(Repeat Chorus)

Thank you, Wolfie!
