War? Lyrics

Dark is the light,
The man you fight,
With all your prayers, incantations,
Running away, a trivial day,
Of judgement and deliverance,
To whom was sold, this bounty soul,
A gentile or a priest?
Who victored over, the Seljuks,
When the Holy Land was taken
We will fight the heathens -4
Was it the riches, of the land,
Powers of bright darkness,
That led the noble, to the East,
To fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens -x8
We must call upon our bright darkness,
Beliefs, they’re the bullets of the wicked,
One was written on the sword,
For you must enter a room to destroy it,
International security,
Call of the righteous man,
Needs a reason to kill man,
History teaches us so,
The reason he must attain,
Must be approved by his God,
His child, partisan brother of war,
Of war, we don’t speak anymore -x4
We will fight the heathens -x8
