lyrics

Our foes lay slain
on crimson plains
we wipe the blood and gristle from our blades
leave them where they lay
in desecrated graves
praying to some lesser god
down in the mire of evacuated
bowels and twitching limbs
amidst the flames
that is their final resting place

Laid to waste
writhing in pain
now its time to celebrate with goblets raised
punish the weak
honor the brave
raid the coffers of the rich and
drink the wine of vanquished Nobels
burn their churches down to ashes
in the name of our unholy crusade

Tonight even our horses will drink wine
To the victor goes the spoils
You will bow at our feet like begging dogs
To the victor goes the spoils

Your soldiers are now slaves
your maidens are now whores
its time to let these motherfuckers know
to the victor goes the spoils

On blood soaked earth
once sacred land
now monuments to fallen heroes stand
sword in hand
sculpted from bone
draped in tapestries of silk
we pilfered from deep catacombs
a sacrificial offer stained with
virgin blood
adorned with precious stones
prophecies told through ancient scrolls
of warriors who swim in pools of gold
have come to pass
by wrath of fate
raid the coffers of the rich and
drink the wine of vanquished Nobels
burn their churches down to ashes
in the name of our unholy crusade

Tonight even our horses will drink wine
To the victor goes the spoils
You will bow at our feet like begging dogs
To the victor goes the spoils

You will respect the crown
You will bow at the throne
or we'll burn this motherfucker to the ground
To the victor goes the spoils...

Spoils of War.
