We came from the pile.
We came from the dead and dying.
But the moment you pulled
You brought us back to the living.
Stand here to a world at war.
This blacken field leads to ruin,
Ruled by folds pulled tight, and a pit so slick.
Draw your lines, let nothing cross. No!
What booming hate moves close,
So vast that the clouds would follow?
What looms, with thunder?
And the water did fall.
The turn of earth to mud.
Once dried veins, now fill and swell.
Lift the torches, light the fields!
We stand as the giants make way.
We stand as the giants make way.
We are the few to she'd the fold,
We are the few!
Oh, sweet lit clarity grant us the eyes for this bane.
Towered beasts now meet our lines...
Oh but fast on the wind came a song, don't turn.
The lines crossed now charge.
The lines crossed but you turned away.
It was a beautiful song, sung through beast's jagged teeth.
It's not real. You'll see. It's not real. You'll see.
She's the touch that you want The soft wet skin that haunts.
Deep inside a warmth that lies on a bed,
She's calling to you...
... taste the wine of her lips, feel free to taste this kiss.
Drink deep and forget the struggle in the battle you live.
Don't turn we need you. Don't turn we need you.
The sirens are calling your name!
Come back. Make the call.
Father, send your rain.
Lay waste to the kings here.
Lay waste to their grip and we'll rise.
We will rise.

    The song starts with being pulled from a mass of sleeping souls. We are then thrust into a battle, or you could say we at this point awakened to the battle.
    Frome there an epic battle is told of. The lines have been drawn the giants are coming and we are ready to charge. But faintly, ever so faintly you hear her. A beautiful song pulls at you flesh and draws you from the place you are. It almost as if time itself stops. She sits there on a bed of silk calling to you, come, endulge with me. Your reality is now this setting but you hear a voice rising! Come back! Don't turn! Make the call awaken!
    And we ask father send your rain wash away this altered state pull me back and we'll rise! We'll rise

    You must fight the battle of life and stay true to those you stand for and with. Eat the apple of knowledge and comfort only after winning your battles and it will be your greatest reward. She is real if you validate her.
