GWAR lyrics : "Decay Of Grandeur"

Lights fade, all is shade
Zombies stalk the promenade
This is promise of eternity

Piles of dead, impaled head
Steaming peat is wretched red
They say history is written in such ways


Trust in rust, dirt and dust
Worms awaiting all of us

At least that's what I heard
Crows soar, lions roar
Chaos rules forevermore

The human race is the only X factor

The decay of grandeur

From riches to rot
The decay of grandeur say
To have and then have not


Kings crouch, the throne is doomed
Assassins reach the inner room

The jester has become the interloper
The Queen is struck, then runs amuck
Her carriage wallows in the muck

The cemetery was moved indoors

The decay of grandeur

From riches to rot
The decay of grandeur say
To have and then have not


Some say we have lost our reason
Some say we have lost our minds

Spinning in the blackest wisdom
Coveting the darkest wine
I say have your host amongst us

And there you tarry for a time
All your virtue shall desert you
Decaying grandeur, box of pine


First the sound, and then the smell
Sonorous the eldritch bell

Send you to the seven hells in time

The decay of grandeur

From riches to rot
The decay of grandeur say
To have and then have not

In time, in time, in time, in time...Decay
