A gathering summoned by the Elder
The consequence of what's immenant
A prophecy dark and foreboding
Forces them to face human intent

The Chosen seek refuge in the mountains
Reluctantly their loved ones recognize
The sacrifice they must adhere to
The only hope for future Setian life

Like a martyr sacrificed

Await the days of clouding
Earth Mother's sharing in our pain
Erase the human memory
They know not of where they came
And though our hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vain they did not suffer
Ten Thousand Strong Will seize the day

What we possess mankind is after
Direct descendants of the Architect
Children of God, seeds of creation
The stakes so high, we must never relent

We lie in wait 'til human minds are clouded
Initiation of the Master Plan
Assimilate, build a life among them
Centuries will pass, patience will win

We are the bane of man

Await the days of clouding
Earth Mother's sharing in our pain
Erase the human memory
They know not of where they came
And though our hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vain they did not suffer
Ten Thousand Strong will seize the day

Await the days of clouding
Earth mother sharing in our pain
Erase the human memory
They know not of where they came
And though our hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vain they did not suffer
Ten thousand strong will seize the day

Await the days of clouding
(Earth Mother's crying out in pain)
Earth mother sharing in our pain
Erase the human memory
(We have to wipe the tears away)
They know not of where they came
And though our hearts are broken
(Our hearts are broken)
We have to wipe the tears away
In vain they did not suffer
(Ten thousand seize the day)
Ten thousand strong will seize the day

    Even through darkness, sorrow, and pitty, we may fall but we all stand tall, we are ten thousand strong, there are millions of us intertwined and we may suffer through cloudyness such as brain was or haunted by evil media and battles, are ten thousand strong. Oneday we shall rise and fight through darkness and we will be risen in light.
