Shadow Of Intent – Elegy III: Overcome Lyrics

Elegy III: Overcome Lyrics – Shadow Of Intent

Now they crumble the kingdom
Tied their hands to their feet
Burned, bereft of forgiveness
City a smoldering heap

From ancient ages to modern times, these untold atrocities have amassed
Permeating the ground, the soil soaks their blood

Nevertheless, this headlong struggle for supremacy
Persists throughout our violent history

Powers of new blood now play god with maniacal ease

They shall enslave all
Powers unite
Joining to extinguish the fight
Pacifying, undermining

Some survive
Others shall be cast alight, into a burning pit of fire
Immolate, a creed now disintegrates
Never to be seen again
Caged, confined
Opposition brutalized

By an unfamiliar dogma
Petrified, as the wrong now becomes the right
Persecution of a people
Some survive
Others shall be cast alight, into a burning pit of fire
Isolated
Wallowing in the shame

No resurgence
Preparations for the next war begin
This cannot be escaped
The world holds its breath awaiting death

Victorious, now the victor sings
And rewrites the cold facts of history
To present their greatness to their offspring
This process cycles continuously
