The rapture and pure ecstasy
Of manifest conquest
The relation of man with steel
A symbiotic beauty

The chosen form
Tried and true
Past on through the ages
Giving no ground
To the enemy
Taking only life

Blood flowing
Through the rivers

Drink deeply
With strong roots
Brothers of earth

Those beside
Sworn the same
Brothers of earth

Blood flowing
Through the rivers

Exemplifying defeat

Declining numbers
Flea the shore

Accepting their loss

Darkness falls by sworn hands
The pure essence of valor
Beasts vomit regret

The few

With hidden fatigue
The strong wait patiently
For a challenge worth of

The phalanx

As the dying plea aloud they are met with spear point
Granted no quarter by any justice
Given only the beautiful option of death
And their bodies dismembered

The phalanx
Symbiotic beauty
The phalanx
The strong wait


from At Long Last, released January 1, 2010
