Iced Earth – Travel In Stygian (Live)


This is what I think of when I think of METAL!

Artist: Iced Earth
Album: Night of the Stormrider
Year: 1991

Lyrics:
Through the flames I watch
As you plead on your knees
The reaper awaits
The ride that you take
Through the lake, lake of flames
Will decide your fate
Was all of it worth eternal pain
The path you chose to live in vain
The river Styx is calling your number
The hot winds of Hell breathe your name
[Bridge]
On the night that it came to me
It was like nothing I’d ever seen
A vision darker than death itself
A violent cloud straight from the depths of hell
And that’s when I saw my destiny
As it approached I was frozen still
I couldn’t move, couldn’t scream for help
Out of the darkness it reached for me
And that’s when it planted the evil seed
And that’s when I saw my destiny
[Chorus]
Travel in Stygian
The damned scream my name
Travel in Stygian
I can’t repent it’s too late
Travel in Stygian
Hot winds blow upon me
Travel in Stygian
No remorse it’s too late
[Bridge]
The henchman awaits you
Yes that’s right, step aboard
We have a very long journey
You owe us
You got what you wanted
In your mortal life
Now your soul is in our grasp
It’s time
Riding on the hot winds of hell
Traveling down in the ship of pain
I chose this fate no turning back
The river Styx has called for me.
