10 minute song about the ruthless conqueror, Tamerlane.
Finally got the lyrics written out on this beast.

It is the life story of Timur (Tamerlane).
It took me several books and videos on his history to come up with them as accurate as possible. Reading along with them you may learn a little bit about history in this non-fiction song.

Lyrics:

In Mid Eastern lands
Near Samarkand
A boy is born, his fate unknown
But as time moves on
Events that shape his mind
And an unlucky day
That left him lame for life

An arrow through the leg
For stealing sheep
Running through the fields
From a farmer’s keep

Many days go by
As the future holds
A great and prosperous legion
To uphold a new reign

Born with the blood of a mongol
Raised with the heart of a nomad
Unconquered lord of the seven climates

This is the age of Tamerlane

To form an army
And lead them to victory
And build paradise
In a sand covered land

Artisans will unite
And soldiers of Islam
Under him, they will fight
Till the end or till they die

And those who oppose
They will burn, or get cutthroat

A boy becomes a man
Then becomes a king
With only one objective
Conquer all he can

Like the game of chess
Putting pawns in their place
With finesse and stratagem
At a delicate pace

He’s called Timur or Tamer the lame
In our time Tamerlane

Claiming descendance to Genhis Khan
To restore his past that’s becoming undone
The mongol king who ravaged the east
Builds an empire, the nomad’s king

He’s known as Timur or Tamer the lame
And his infamous military campaigns

Up on a hill, awaits forces of Delhi
Into a trap they have fallen
War elephants in chaos
A break in formation
Into defensive arrays

Through the land of India
And the Middle East
He lays all to waste
Like an infernal beast
The heads of the dead
Piled up in flames
To show his enemies
To fear the name of - Tamerlane

Held with such respect
By even his mortal enemies
He was a man who cared not for jest
No talk of blood shed or profanity
With a love for the arts and architecture
But on the battlefield

BURN IT DOWN
TO THE GROUND!

BURN IT DOWN
DOWN TO THE GROUND!

(chant)

His campaign devastates
Through Western Persian grounds
Hundred thousands are slain
In Azerbaijan
Georgia
Armenia
And the Caucasus

They say he was
Strategic genius
A military innovator
And a ruthless General
And a fearless conqueror

Born with the blood of a mongol
Raised with the heart of a nomad
Unconquered lord of the seven climates

This is the age of Tamerlane

The one who stands in the way of Timur
Turkish sultan Beyazit and his Ottoman Turks

He outnumbers by his force
He rides out on his horse
Confident of victory
His cunning strategy he did not see

And now captured, is their lord
Humiliated and scorned

In the enemies hands
Are now those in his command
Timur’s empire grows larger
Nearly reaching the Khan’s scope

But it is not enough
This voracious lord wants the Chinese empire
And achieve what Khan could not
He marched through snow
For this dire

Fallen mysteriously ill
He’s no longer able to attack
He is taken back, back to Samarkand

“Do not disturb my grave for if you do
A fate worse than mine will fall upon you”

Lyrics:

In the shade of another timeless escape
We’ve broken all the visions - a fatal mistake
And without a judgement on the horizon to come
The eternal is never, tonight is the one
So make no mistake, this is the end
Just like it’s started, nobody’s won
And darker than death a vision of hate
For the maker of filth
The portrait of fate

So walk on the line on suicide
Where the solitude keeps you whole
Never mind your heart
You can forget your soul

We all live out of control!


Your soul is mine
We will meet on the other side


The Swing of the universe
Cannot deny!
I know in the end
I have to die

Speaking of the destiny
That the prophets await
The Ghost effect inside of me

Old ghost speak to me
Old ghost speak to me

Old ghost speak through me
Tell me of the universe
What’s my destiny?

So walk on the line on suicide
Where the solitude keeps you whole
Never mind your heart
You can forget your soul

Walk on the line of suicide
Where the solitude keeps you whole

When the end is beginning to make any sense
Your words are corrupted by your ignorance
The shape of the figure on the eye of the mind
Is the pawn of the hollow blind follow the blind
And if you are chosen to it again
Make it count because it’s only a sin

The light in the shadow of the end of your tunnel

Are blinding the visions of the ghost effect

So walk on the line of suicide
Where the solitude keeps you whole
Never mind your heart
You can forget your soul

Your soul is mine
We will meet on the other side
