lyrics

BLACK CHALLENGE

Ascend you now these winding steps, entering in this dark contest
Buckled tight and freshly mailed, may the cruelest freak prevail
Swim through blood and wade through gore, as ordered by your emperor
Undreamt of rewards you may seek, but first a test you’ll never beat
Enter now! The Black Challenge awaits thee…

Now bow to the one who gives us purpose, gives us grace
War’s triumphal avatar, our sovereign lord of barren waste

Behold his maze
Running the gauntlet you’ll probably die inside
Survive this first test to see the horror multiply
Challenged for days
Trials of terror see your madness amplified
Servants of steel aching for the finish line

It’s every creature for itself, greedy beasts vying for wealth
One thousand miles you have journeyed, one thousand very ugly opponents all but worthy
Squabbling thieves and deceitful assassins, irreverent clerics and fallen antipaladins
Faceless pit fighters and berserk barbarians, kill them all!
A Black Challenge awaits thee!

Now bow to the one who gives us purpose, gives us grace
War’s triumphal avatar, our sovereign lord of savage competition

Pounding drums, jeering crowds, dying screams make the Master proud
Pitch of death to entertain, spilling blood till only one remains

“I can see now the many wonders, I can see clearly what I stand to gain from this
I can see now the heavy treasures”

Gouging eyes, splattered brains, smears of failure as they die in vain
Coliseum emptying, bringing forth fresh meat to challenge thee!
A new challenge approacheth!
