Darkness descends upon the land

The evil deployed far & wide

return home to devour our flesh

Our enemies revel in our undoing

vengeful gods spewing discord in the wind

The brave are silenced & threatened with evil

teargassed & spirited away in the night

Who will save us from the hateful heart?

Who will save us from the faithful

holding onto false promises?

Who will save us from collaborators

bought with wealth & power?

Candles flickering in the darkness

guide our faltering steps
