The Sentinel Lyrics - Judas Priest

Review The Song (5)

Along deserted avenues
Steam begins to rise
The figures primed and ready
Prepared for quick surprise
He's watchin' for a sign
His life is on the line

Sworn to avenge
Condemn to hell
Tempt not the blade
All fear the Sentinel

Dogs whine in the alleys
Smoke is on the wind
From deep inside its empty shell
A cathedral bell begins
Sending out its toll
A storm begins to grow

Sworn to avenge
Condemn to hell
Tempt not the blade
All fear the Sentinel

Amidst the upturned burned-out cars
The challengers await
And in their fists clutch iron bars
With which to seal his fate
Across his chest is scabbards rest
The rows of throwing knives
Whose razor points in challenged tests
Have finished many lives

Now facing one another
The stand-off eats at time
Then all at once a silence falls
As the bell ceases its chime
Upon this sign the challengers
With shrieks and cries rush forth
The knives fly out like bullets
Upon their deadly course
Screams of pain and agony
Rent the silent air
Amidst the dying bodies
Blood runs everywhere
The figure stands expressionless
Impassive and alone
Unmoved by this victory
And the seeds of death he's sown

Sworn to avenge
Condemn to hell
Tempt not the blade
All fear the Sentinel

Well i think this song sounds like its about V for vendetta. It's sort of a post apocalyptic comic book. and the dude wears a mask while killing dudes with throwing knives in a city with burned out cars, so thats at least what it sounds like its about to me.

Just dropping in nice site.
I am from Niger and know bad English, tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "Tamil disciples for willing mutual and generally regular number teams have been determined."

Thanks 8). Serepta.

amazing | Reviewer: Miles Parker | 7/28/09

This is my favorite Judas Priest song. I love songs that tell a story, and this is a great one. Personally, if you take out the modern words, the character described as the sentinel reminds me of Altair from Assassins Creed. I like the sound of "knifeslinger" though. lol

This song is amazing. To me it seems like its about a man on a quest in a post-apocalyptic world. It reminds me sort of a western, like the main character seems like a gunslinger in the wild west....except with knives........a knifeslinger?

this is one of my favourite judas priest songs. altough i like the live version on "priest live" more then the version thats recorded in the studio. It 's like som kinda tale being told, like an action movie.

I think the part of the figth itself where the music becomes very silent is the best part of the song.
