The flag that I once planted as a King, I abandoned
And now I reclaim this banner by God, my sword and my name
In a truce sealed by blood within this metal skin and all that I own
Blood, bone and courage in my veins and the heart that pumps it

Drink from the chalice and be reborn
And the land with me, it will change and transform

A fighting man sworn to the quest, it is the doom of man that they forgot
I have awoken a dragon and all around me the mist of his breath
Good and evil, they're never ain't one without the other, his brother
Always there where I least expect it, it will burn me to cinders

The future's taken root in the present sun
Don't look into my heart, least of all your own

No man who is false can win in combat against the truth, when he lies
He murders some part of the world, we must find what was lost
His hearth and home, wife and child were not for me, I was not yet done
I never knew how empty my soul was until it was refilled

Mad distemper strikes both beggars and kings
The Necromancer's hard teachings of war and quest

Well, I am given the right to bear arms and the power to meet justice
I have lived through others far too long
And carried my guilt, my causes, my sins
I hope in the hereafter when I owe no more to the future
That I can be just a man

Mustaine, Dave
