Lyrics

“Fools!” cried the stranger
Won’t you ever learn?
Piety and virtue
Won’t help you as you burn
Your heaven’s just a nightmare
When waking turns to hell
There is no God to silence
The braying of death’s knell

And the blind will lead the blind
Straight into the fire divine
Are you blind to what you see?
The pain, the fear, the misery?

Every night you kneel and pray
And do as is God’s will
Yet God in all his mercy
Bids you burn in hell
Your heaven’s just a fantasy
To turn to in your fear
A feeble straw to clutch at
When you know that death is near

And the blind will lead the blind
Straight into the fire divine
Are you blind to what you see?
The pain, the fear, the misery?

And the blind will lead the blind
Straight into the fire divine
Are you blind to what you see?
The pain, the fear, the misery?

The blind will lead the blind
The blind will lead the blind

“The Frost Monstreme” and “The Fire Divine” that were written by Greg… Greg’s two songs are a link back to our roots with Frost And Fire.

Robert Garven

The song ‘Frost And Fire’ was inspired by Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser series. One of the stories was entitled “The Frost Monstreme”. I wanted to write a song about that and I thought we needed an element to combat the frost – ‘The Fire Divine’. So, the two opposites of the frost and the fire. I revisited that theme on the ‘Forever Black’ album with those two songs.
