lyrics

Necromance, what heights we had
What peaks through heaven's floor
But we were ghosts so suddenly

Necromance, what style of dance
You shook as you were stone
And those that claimed indifference
Drained both of us

This necromance, a broken lance
A child's chance in hell
An appetite for loneliness
Costs twice as much

So when you run to war
I shall not be near you
I shall not await that knocking door
So run to war, so run to war

Necromance, what sleight of hand
What spells you wouldn't cast
A fire doused so clinical

Necromance, what shape of man
Destroys another's hope
Those that deal in apathy
Claim victory

In necromance, what heights we had
What peaks through heaven's floor
But we were ghosts so suddenly
So violently

So when you run to war
I shall not be near you
I shall not await that knocking door
That missing soul report
So run to war, so run to war
So run to war, so run to war
