​Live And Die By The Sword

This song is by Firewind and appears on the album Immortals (2017).

When your days are shaded and nights have faded
And the still of death fills the air
You save the knowing, the fear is growing
And the darkness tries to hide their wounds

Your blade is true and your conscious too
Why do these thoughts enter your mind?
There's a warm wind blowing and the fire is glowing
It's my choice to live and to die by the sword

The cowards have all vanished, they retreat in deep despair
For the enemy is more than just a beast inside the lair
They will never find their Savior, so oblivious to their crime
For the paradox of evil leads them through the night

They will rise, in the final hour

We live and die fighting by the sword
To prove that virtue is its own reward
We live and die fighting by the sword
There's no surrender, the order will be restored

An ambush from the mountains, they attack us from behind
The alliance has been broken, there is no more mastermind
We secure our last position, with our shields and with our swords
But our numbers and no match against their mighty hordes

So they rise, and we seal our fate

We live and die fighting by the sword
To prove that virtue is its own reward
We live and die fighting by the sword
There's no surrender, the order will be destroyed!

A genocide, a mortal fate
Release the hounds and feed the hate
And even in defeat, we will survive - so we

We live and die fighting by the sword
To prove that virtue is its own reward
We live and die fighting by the sword
There's no surrender, the order will be destroyed
