Requiem for the Fallen

Brothers fight together and fall
Behold the blades of shadow and light
Fighting the beasts on the land and in sky-keeps
Wings of flight show how high the price
Behold now their blood soaks this earth
Soaks this earth

Do you feel their pain?
Can you see they're bleeding?
The gods are dying
The gods are dying

Your visions falsely clouded by the blood on your eyes
Your crown will crash and fall as befits this grave betrayal

Blacken the skies
Darken my eyes
I am not a son of light
Flaring out in despair
In this turgid, sordid hell

Betrayal permeates the air
Smoke is rising to the sky
Blood of gods soaks this ground
And in their honor I raise a cairn

I raise a cairn for the fallen heroes

Oh! The weight!
Oh! The great burden of grief
A burning wrath subsumed by anguish
I fall to knees and howl to the skies above


from Tides of War, released February 5, 2014
