Ordeal By Fire

This song is by English Dogs and appears on the album Forward Into Battle (1985).

Ordeal by fire, death takes a grip when there's no one around
Forward in fear, waiting alone for the final command
Faced by a trial that takes me away to the limits of pain
I fear the task that I am to face, won't let me come back again

Flame that burns in the sky
Knows I prepare to die
Know that I face them alone
One of the many heroes

Flame that burns in the sky
Knows I prepare to die
Know that I face them alone
One of the many heroes

Sent by the king, alone to return for the flame that gives him the power
Guarding the door of death, I will return within the tewnty-four hours
Stealing the flame from the keeper who guards with all its evil reserve
Run for my life, return through the hell, if only I have the nerve

On through the forest of light
On through the caves in the night
Until I can reach the domain
And then I return with the flame

On through the forest of light
On through the caves in the night
Until I can reach the domain
And then I return with the flame

Slaying the beast who's guarding my prize, that it tries to deny
Running back to the kingdom of men, a warrior fearless and high
Facing a welcome fit for a king, I come back in proud victory
Power in my hands, I now realize that the true king is me

Ruling the land by the sword
Power in my every word
The flame of the gods is held high
Immortal, now I'll never die

Ruling the land by the sword
Power in my every word
The flame of the gods is held high
Immortal, now I'll never die
