THE GREAT BATTLE (or THE WAR OF WRATH) feat. TED NASMITH

Music by Alex Armuschio
Lyrics by Wilma Collo

[PASSAGE]

IT’S HARD TO BEGIN
WHEN ALL SEEMS TO HAVE ENDED
WITH A LANDSLIDE THAT LEAVES
NO FIRM POINT BEHIND
ELUSIVE DISCORDANCE
OF MULTIFORM VOICES
AN IMPLODING LOADSTAR
MAKING NO SENSE AT ALL

BUT THE SEAWAY THAT OPENS
THE RIPTIDE THAT HIES
BREEDS THE IMPULSE THAT LEADS ON
WHERE THE ALBATROSS FLIES

TO THE TOWN ON THE MOUNTAIN
IN THE SPRINGTIME UNTOLD
UP THE GLISTENING STREET
TO THE HOUSE OF THE GODS

A LOST LIFE, A NEW LIFE
A BRINGER OF VENGEANCE
A DART HAS SHOT BEYOND RECALL
OH, CAN’T YOU FEEL THE URGE OF INSURGENCE
IT SAYS THAT NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND TALL
FOR ONE AND ALL

WITH BATTLE DRUMS ANNOUNCING
THAT NOTHING IS OVER
FALL OF DRAGONS
SUBVERTED SKIES
EVERYTHING CHANGES
EVERYTHING FLOWS
IN RAW EFFACEMENT
RENEWED

A LOST LIFE, A GAINED LIFE
A VOYAGE, A WAGER
A VERSE IN THE POEM
OF THE ONGOING FIGHT
THE WAY OF ALL COURAGE
THE PASSING OF EONS
THE STRUGGLING PROGRESSION
FROM TURMOIL TO LIGHT

A LOST LIFE, A NEW LIFE
A BRINGER OF VENGEANCE
A DART HAS SHOT BEYOND RECALL
OH, CAN’T YOU FEEL THE URGE OF INSURGENCE
IT SAYS NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND TALL
FOR ONE AND ALL

[AVENGED]

WE, WHO WENT RUNNING ON THIS HALF-CRAZED RIDE
WE, WHO WERE WAITING ON THE DARKER SIDE
TILL OUR PURPOSES WERE NEARLY BENT
TILL WE COULD HARDLY SEE WHAT THIS ALL MEANT
ARE NOW AVENGED

HEROES AND CULPRITS, WAVERING ON THE EDGE
IN REMEMBRANCE OF AN ANCIENT PLEDGE
WHAT WAS PROMISED CANNOT BE GAINSAID
STILL, IN OUR STUBBORNNESS WE TOILED AND BLED
FOR OUR REVENGE

AND OUR CRY WAS ANSWERED FROM UP HIGH
HOSTS ON EARTH, HOSTS IN THE SKY
ADVANCING FAST, ADVANCING STRAIGHT
FOR IN OUR PLIGHT WE COULD NO LONGER WAIT
TO BE AVENGED

EAGLES AND DRAGONS, ETHER AND LAND
THE DARK LEGIONS RUN AND DISBAND
DAZZLED EYES OF UNBURIED THRALLS
AN IRON CROWN THAT TEETERS AND FALLS
IN DOUR REVENGE

TANGLED IN A FATAL GAME
SUFFERING TILL RANSOM CAME
WANING FROM THE LANDS THEY CROSSED
ACHING STILL FOR WHAT THEY LOST 

AND THE SEA ROARED, ABYSMS GAPED
THE WORLD WE KNEW WAS ALL RESHAPED
AND CALMNESS DROPS ON A CHANGED SCENE
SO KEEN THE VANQUISHERS HAVE BEEN
IN THEIR REVENGE

ONE IN THE FIRES OF DEEP EARTH
ONE IN THE UNFATHOMED SEA
ONE IN THE AIRS OF HEAVEN
VOYAGING HIGH AND FREE
