The sky is stained with red
as the light dissappears over the horizon.......
Darkness covers the land.....
Shadows dance by the flickering flames,
as the survivors struggle to keep warm.
Blood dripping from their wounded bodies,
as they wish they were never born.
Biting cold winds claw at their flesh,
giving them little rest.
The rest of men have been destroyed,
and for all they know they're next.
The heavens look on in quiet dismay
as men pass on throughout the night.
Their bodies left behind, they escape.
Their wounded comrades left behind.
Darkness creeps into the survivors' hearts,
as their souls go under attack.
All hope is quickly stripped away
and replaced with saddness and fear.
Why taketh they another breath?
Why suffer they any longer.
Weapon in hand some kill themselves
the depression and fear much stronger.
Is there anyone yet alive...
among these fallen men?
Shall anyone survive...
this day that seemeth like hell.
The enemy closes in on them,
their hands stained red with with blood.
Lurking in the shadows they conceal theit posirtion,
aiming to destroy like a raging flood.
The few that remain join together.
Outnumbered and wounded they refuse to give up.....
they refuse to die this bloody night...
....without putting up a fight...
Weapons in hand they stand their ground.
Their blood drenched clothes stuck to their bodies.
Their war beaten face set hard.
Soldiers to the very end...
The signal is given and the enemies pounce.
Like a pack of wolves they chase their prey.
Mercilessly they slaughter them.
Without remorse they kill their victums...
A star falls from the heavens...
It shoots across the sky...
...bearing this message.....
"An empire has fallen.
It's defenders dead.
Under these dark skies,
blood has been shed.
How the mighty have fallen!!
How the strong is made weak!!!!
He who thought he was most powerful,
has now died in defeat!"
As if in grief tears fall from the sky,
as the heavens kiss this once strong nation
The darkness receeds
as light shines forth.
A new era,
