lay down your guards
they’ll do you no good
i’ll conquer your defenses
and claim all of you
my armies shall rise
march to your gate
my forces will take
your once private fields
my might will prevail
upon your holiest of grounds
we shall meet at the center
of a tempestuous storm
feel our bloods quicken
lay down your guard
welcome the new rising
our night following dawn.
