​Eternal Mercenary

This song is by Drive and appears on the album Characters In Time (1988).

A Roman Soldier, a persian King
I've come to conquer, I've come to bring
A curse by god to roam this land
With an endless task to conquer man

Fires burning, children crying
Oh why my lord there is so much dying

They've called me evil, they've called my death
They've called me Genghis Khan
No one's at rest, no one's at rest
From the eternal Mercenary

March to battle I must go
To kill and take another should
And as I cross the river Rhine
I notice that good men have died

They tell the stories of years gone by
Of men in battle, when children cried
Cursed by god to roam this land
With an endless task to conquer man

Years and centuries have gone by
But still I must battle and never die
For I am diven and cannot escape
This pain my fury, this pain my fate

Fires burning, children crying
Oh why my lord is there so much dying

They've called me evil, they've called me death
They've called me Genghis Khan
No one 's at rest, no one's at rest
From the eternal Mercenary
