Written By Iron Kingdom

Montezuma

Is this my final resting place? My final place to dwell,
The vile stench of blood and death, this pain as if from hell.
A fleet of Spanish galleons, are spotted, on our seas,
The date and time are perfect, no this cannot be.

These men of steel and muskets, come from a distant land,
In search of gold and glory, is this our final stand?

(Chorus)
Montezuma
The ancient prophecy foretold
Montezuma
The coming of a new age
Montezuma
The fall of a mighty empire
Montezuma
A god’s vengeful rage
(End Chorus)

The temple of the sun god, lies burnt to a crisp,
Volcanic eruptions, the water steams below,

These signs warned us, of our coming fate,
How can our forefathers sins, be laid upon us?

(Chorus)
Montezuma
The ancient prophecy foretold
Montezuma
The coming of a new age
Montezuma
The fall of a mighty empire
Montezuma
A god’s vengeful rage
(End Chorus)

Canon blasts, are carried in the wind,
Armed in iron, fearless they march,

Through icy cliffs, volcanic ash,
Scorched desert valleys, ruthless rapids,

They’re horses charge, are they gods or beasts?
It’s too late to make peace

The conquistadors march, with banners raised high
“We conquer in the name of the Lord”

(Chorus)
Montezuma
The ancient prophecy foretold
Montezuma
The coming of a new age
Montezuma
The fall of a mighty empire
Montezuma
A god’s vengeful rage
(End Chorus)

Severed bodies, lay across the floor,
We’ve tasted steel, and now we are no more.

Montezuma
