Wake up now, this is the time you've waited for

Far below, where shadows fester
As they grow an army thousands strong
Obsessed by right and wrong
They sense their time is coming near

So they turn towards the light
From their region of the night
Marching on and on
They near the air, it won't be long

You know you're on the way out
It's just a matter of time
You thought you'd rule the world forever
Long live the king and don't spare the loser

After all, you're not what you thought you were at all
You're just a natural fact, another cul-de-sac
On nature's hard unfeeling trail
Now all those dreams of old will be stories left untold
Cut off in your prime, extinct until the end of time

You know you're on the way out
It's just a matter of time
You thought you'd rule the world forever
Long live the king but don't spare the loser now

Now the host emerges and a shadow starts to fall
Not one knows what hit them, none can see at all
Even as the end approaches still they're not aware
How can you fight a foe so deadly
When you don't even know it's there?

And now that the job is almost done
Maybe some escape, no, not even one

You know they're on the way out
It's just a matter of time
You thought you'd rule the world forever
Long live the king and don't spare the loser
