A stranger came by traveling     And went to every door
                                        C             G
He said he'd lost his people     He had come to look for more
Em                               G            D
And many did believe him         As he talked upon the square
Em
The spell he wove upon us        Fills my body with despair

     Em                               C         G
And in his eyes                  Was the flame of the west
            C                          Em
Until it burns                   He never rests

 

He had the voice of an angel     And the face of a saint
And though they fell behind him  I knew what it was he meant
His eyes were full of demons     As he made the message clear
He strode the world like Caesar  With a trident held is fear

And in his eyes                  Was the flame of the west
Until it burns                   He never rests

Em              D          F#m             Em
It's just how its always been    One man with a ruling dream
Em         D               F#m                Em
And everyone falls for him       Heroines in an ancient film
Em              D                  G         C
It's just how its always been    One man with a ruling dream
Em         D                       G          C
And everyone falls for him       Heroines in an ancient film

Look out for that stranger       If you pass him on your way
He never sees a danger           In the darkening of the day
There will be dollars in his handHe has all hell to pay
And he will pass them to you     If you promise you will stay

And in his eyes                  Was the flame of the west 
Until it burns                   He never rests
