Lyrics on Challenge the Wind
The son of vengeance is ready to fight (from darkness to light)The justice will strike down upon Bezrael (from heaven to hell)All of the murders shall soon be avenged (those innocent souls)This raging fire igniting his pride (all hail to Kreel)
Terial will fly through the shadows of the nightThe diaphanous sentry, the hawk made of ice
Quingdar has cried in the river of tears (thy tears filled the lake)The creature of God has averted the fall (the bell has to toll)Let's play the bells for the heroes in white (from darkness to light)The power of magic will show us the light (we'll know black and white)
The path will be lit by the rays of the starsTo reach out the secrets the Nephilim's holding back
Challenge the force of the windDestroy the curse, turn your doubts into fireChallenge the force of the windBe yourself to brave the unknowns of time
The guardians of Celain are holding the spell(The spell of the graves)The magical circles will open the gates (to alter the past)Kreel will discover the mighty untold (the mighty untold)The alpha and the omega will become as one (all hail to Kreel)
Unfold your destiny, the future's unveiledTo reach out the secrets the Nephilim's holding back
Challenge the force of the windUtter the spell to reclaim your empireChallenge the force of the windBe yourself to brave the unknowns of time
He'll be the chosen one, heir of the landsSurrounded by darkness, he'll bring us the lightThousands of warriors and souls has been sacrificedDied to return in a whole brave new world (a whole brave new world)
Challenge the force of the windDestroy the curse, turn your doubts into fireChallenge the force of the windBe yourself to brave the unknowns of time
Challenge the force of the windUtter the spell to reclaim your empireChallenge the force of the windBe yourself to brave the unknowns of time
