Burning skies - raining fire Dowm on the helpless below Hell has come - storming legions Iron eagles - angels of death Searing wings - roar as thunder Burning the life right out of the night Heavens above - slaughtered outright Reducinf bodies to ashes and dust No more tomorrows - sunrise on a dead world Burning the shadows right into the walls Paying the price in self sacrifice Final breath - ends in fire Fallout snows its seeds of death Darkened skies - deadly quiet Nuclear winter settles its frost Pitiful end - human folly Centuries of work now scattered to dust Victor defeated - final chapter Closing the book and set it alight Failsafe - cannot be recalled Flee to nowhere - death consumes all Return to the earth from which you crawled Return to darkness - return to dust

They wander as motes of dust In a reserve as vast as all space (The space between the worlds) Here where the light shines but dimly Coiled and staring as the adder- Are courage and defiance... With eyes of fire and wings of gold They watch and they wait Images of the victory Burn as the central fire, Like the Lord of Worlds A great Creator, a great Destroyer With alpha and omega as standards (Convulsion, chaos and delusion between them) To symbolize omnipotence Beyond all litanies of man An awakening for the spirit The era of rebirth Courage grows like the tail of a comet As it falls inward - to destiny Rise red Star, God of war Midnight crimson eye on the skyline Riding high in the dawn-lit sky Staring as if at an eclipsed sun Passing from the realms of light and life... The realms of sound now stilled Surging like the tide, empty skies begin to glow They wander as motes of dust In a reserve as vast as all space (The space between the worlds) Here where the light shines but dimly Coiled and staring as the adder- Are courage and defiance With eyes of fire and wings of gold They watch and they await... The era of rebirth

Can't you see we don't care about you? Can't you see we don't want your kind? We give you weapons to kill each other Can't you see, or are you blind? Vultures in the sky, flying overhead Vultures in the sky looking for the dead Vultures in your sky You're doing just what we want you to do killing off your population We've got you by your stupid pride Rewarding it with frustration Vultures in the sky, flying overhead Vultures in the sky looking for the dead Vultures in the sky, flying overhead Vultures in the sky, they're looking for the dead

I am the offspring of resignation Adopted by the fires of discontent Optimism becomes an opiate Survival and glory to the brave Struggle stirs the human spirit Kept keen on the grindstone of tool Pain and fear light the fire But how high to stoke the flame? Burn Can the sheep be awakened? I see signs of life flicker and die Countless as the stars are our choices The road has forged before us - now choose Not this time, a new way must be forged Forged to or from hell - we choose Salvation just within reach But how high must we stoke the flames? Burn, Burn, Burn The sanctimonious rabble cries louder Opposition for its own sake All caught within this maze How many wolves are there among us? If discipline is born through struggle... Where is it now? Unconcious and buried by apathy A cleansing firestorm gathers and grows... The cloudless night sky glows at the horizon But the zenith remains black as pitch Silent flashes like summer lightning Dawn approaches - the morning Horned moon rises This morning will be like no other Firestorm awaits beneath the skyline Awaits to consume our timid world Because it's time to burn again Thunder sounds a warning But no one stirs to rise Silence descends like a funeral shroud A final chance passes The firestorm consumes the dead Burn, Burn, Burn White phosphorous flames reaching higher Heaven chokes on the smoke Mesmerized by the light of their own death Burning out forever The dust - borne by the wind... Slash and burn and slash and burn and turn to fire...

Children of confusion awake! Grasp the reigns of power And as we master this world Our cleansing fires consume the placid The Hydra of modern piety beckons Provoking our deepest convictions Our coils of strength & virtue Arise like a diamond-backed serpent Many heads of deviance clamor Denying this new morning twilight They spit poison and contempt upon us But we wear their scorn with pride From the mountains to the hinterlands Burns this Undying Fire... Recreants could not extinguish it The everlasting standard restored Restoration: the Icon & Sword An enduring standard is raised... Restoration of the Undying Fire

Few know the true lined face of Mars To charge across the desolation Bayonets fixed for close quarter... Sawbacks gleam red perspiration Who among us would dare... Dare to walk the killing fields? The heather that drank the blood of our fathers And bled from trenches...slashed... By what authority are we granted peace? Over dead bodies of the more worthy More worthy than we Like the moth, we serve the light blindly Ever colliding with another servant Capitulation, resignation The rot seeps everywhere An unstemmed tide of ruin Entropy gathers & engulfs instead Few know the true lined face of mars But the lessons of the learned Drawn from killing & burning fields Offer a tourniquet to staunch the flow But we'd rather stand & bleat Flashes of the storm our only light Perhaps it's time to burn again
