Dark wings cast a shadow
And a field of darkness grows
Spreading wings out over sorrow
My only choice is to eat the crow

Born of broken oaths
Bourne away on broken oak
This old shield is turning over
Staining red upon the clover

The battlefield quiets
Like a lull in a song
I was always the shield they were breaking upon
The giant has fallen
And left me alone
But I'm building my throne from
What's left of its bones

Some would call this murder
Others know it's the only way
I'm steeped in the blood of brothers
A stain that won't seem to wash away

All these Crimson spattered feathers
Blow forlorn amongst the heather
Dark wings circle over
A long shadow growing older

I'll make the mountains weep
The watered earth then will heave
And give back the planted seed
