lyrics

Set the wheel in motion, unleash the wave
This is the wondrous crusade!

For the land is bleeding out in the east
And we shall wash their wounds of filth

Somewhere they suffer, somewhere they cry
Somewhere the children are misled, deceived
That’s where we’re needed, that’s where we’ll go
That’s where the holy light will shine again

Steel my shaking heart
Bleeding realm
Despite the courage I show, it’s fear that’s running strong below
No matter what they might say, I still can’t bring myself to cheer

Take up your cross, do not fear what’s to come
Never you mind all the pain
Live for today

This hand directs me, that voice commands
What choice then only rests with me?

On day of judgement, you cannot say “It was my order to do so”

Despite my calmness, I toil inside
There’s not a beam of light and I’m alone
God’s light has left me, I hear a hum
Nothing for me to sense but moss and stone

Somewhere they suffer, somewhere they cry
Somewhere the women are caged, held down
That’s where we’re needed, that’s where we’ll go
That’s where the holy light will shine again

Guitar Solo: Michael
