Queen of Peace
Oh, the king, gone mad,
Within his suffering,
Called out for relief.
Someone cure him of his grief.

His only son, cut down,
But the battle won,
Oh, what is it worth when all that's left is hurt?

Like the stars chase the sun,
Over the glowing hill, I will conquer.
Blood is running deep,
Some things never sleep.

Suddenly, I'm overcome,
Dissolving like the setting sun,
Like a boat into oblivion,
'Cause you're driving me away.

Now, you have me on the run,
The damage is already done,
Come on, is this what you want?
'Cause you're driving me away.

Oh, the queen of peace,
Always does her best to please,
Is it any use?
Somebody's gotta lose.

Like a long scream,
Out there, always echoing,
Oh, what is it worth?
All that's left is hurt.

Like the stars chase the sun,
Over the glowing hill, I will conquer.
Blood is running deep,
Some things never sleep.

Suddenly, I'm overcome,
Dissolving like the setting sun,
Like a bomb into oblivion,
'Cause you're driving me away.

Now, you have me on the run,
The damage is already done,
Come on, is this what you want?
'Cause you're driving me away.

And my love is no good,
Against the fortress that it made of you,
Blood is running deep,
Sorrow that you keep.

Suddenly, I'm overcome,
Dissolving like the setting sun,
Like a bomb into oblivion,
'Cause you're driving me away.

And, now, you have me on the run,
The damage is already done,
Come on, is this what you want?
'Cause you're driving me away.
