I am one chosen by the gods

As the down begins to break
We march to meet the horde
Invaders armed with spear and sword
Ten thousand legions strong
A loathsome blot upon the land
I thirst to see their blood upon my hands

Outnumbered ten to one
The air is heavy, as the sun
Begins to draw the sweat from every man

Oh, a sudden change
My breath, it catches in my throat
I falter from the pain
And filled with fear
I turn to flee

Oh, what have I done?
I've left my men to certain death
A coward's mark upon my head
But wait, for in my path
A shadow looms and speaks to me

Turn and fight
Harness your heathen might
You will take revenge for the fallen ones

An eerie light descends
A sudden peace from the wind
A new sensation overcoming me

Now filled with lust for blood
I turn and tear back
to the site where courage faltered for me

Oh, I can't believe
The sight obscene
The field of dead
Stretching far as eye can see

Oh, I've failed them
I have forsaken my only calling
Oh, retribution
My only wish, but how?
No map to guide my feet
I'll guide you, I'll find your way
The shadow spoke to me

I am
I am
I am one
One chosen by the gods

[Heinrich solo]

With nothing left to lose
I step back to the fray
their force asleep and none will ever see another day
My courage has been found
begin to cut them down
Revenge, revenge is my name

Death is their only destiny
My blades are dancing in perfect unity
releasing my rage for what seems like eternity

What the gods have wrought in you today, let no man tear asunder

I wish to return to ethereal state
No pain or feeling
Relenquish my body in the darkened night
I slowly drift away
Leaving my body I'm finally free
No physical traits
The perfect being
Rush of color, divine new realm
Come with me, Come with me

I am one chosen by the gods

Thor's hammer crashed to the earth with a mighty rumble. When the smoke cleared, there were some guys. Some stuff happened that set the mood, something about a quest to rock some towns, and now we play melodeath.
