Seize The Blade

This post was written in 2 minutes.
These are some lyrics I came up with recently. I would still very much classify it as being a work in progress. It is intentionally written to be vauge and abstract, therefore allowing it to mean different things to different people. But, at it's core is the theme of shattering the oppression that inflicts us, whatever that may be. And, yes, it took me far longer to write than whatever the time counter says. Haha.

Heroes and villains collide
We'll bear witness this night
Legends align their place
Cowards and fools flee the fight

As vultures circle
And the hour draws near
Gather up your arms
Dispel your fear

Carnage greets the field
Eden’s curse we’ve grown to learn
Relish your redemption songs
Providence shall return

As vultures circle
And the hour draws near
Gather up your arms
Dispel your fear

When the trumpets sound
And shattered earth cries out
Let the torches blaze
Lift your swords and shout


We are one, join in the crusade
A cadence of the free, seize the blade

We are the brave, let our arrows siege
Cherish your name, pillage your dreams

Seize the blade

March on, oh faithful few
Stand firm, stand true
And welcome your salvation home
While the eternal light of morning follows you

Nice Kirsten. I had no idea you were such a poet. :) The writing definitely fits a militant off-to-war rhythm.

Nice! I like battles and warfare, and all that, so this peice particularly appealed to me. I've been trying to find the time to write something similar of my own. :-)

I like it :-) I think it's great when battle metaphors are coupled with Christian lyrics.

It brought to mind a biblical battle. I loved it. Great rhythm.
