--Transcriber's Notes--

I have spent the past 6 months on these songs trying to
get them as perfect as possible.  If you think further
corrections are needed, have the updated solos, or a
better version of this song please mail me at ArchEnemies
@aol.com.  I plan on tabbing this entire album, I have
been hard at work making my previous 'FSSD' tabs better.
Enjoy!

--'REIGN OF TERROR' LYRICS--

(Peterson/Ramirez)

Marching their way through the crypts of the dead
Taking the storm by command
Killing the victims and taking them slaves
Hitler's violent 3rd Reich
The victims are worried
The warheads have passed
The fires claim your fate
Hell leads his armies to march and defy
Lucifer takes his way

Obey this despot the victims wail
Victims have taken the toll
The cold winds of winter are prison forever
Fires claim your fate
Your fate!

Fighting the way though the mists of the night
Taking the life from young souls
Marching, our armies, they prepare to fight
The city's finally destroyed

Machine guns are firing, that takes our robot
Finding our way through hell
Generals, smiling, teach us to fight
Our armies have done well

Obey this despot the victims wail
Victims have taken the toll
The cold winds of winter are prison forever
Fires claim your fate
...Your fate!

Though... the dead... have trapped... us in
We'll break.. the back... of torture and pain
Fashioned... hammers... wielded... weight
Cursing... the black path... to hell's... gate

The magic's lost, and taking its course
The world lives in fear, death gods are near

Awake in the dust, the battle now lost
We watched you defy, now it's time for you to die

Marching their way through the crypts of the dead
Taking the storm by command
Killing the victims and taking them slaves
Hitler's violent 3rd Reich
The victims are worried
The warheads have passed
The fires claim your fate
Hell leads his armies to march and defy
Lucifer takes his way

Obey this despot the victims wail
Victims have taken the toll
The cold winds of winter are prison forever
Fires claim your fate
Your fate!

No! No! No! No!
Die!

Your Fate!
