Flag of Blood

About the consequences of allowing political and social weakness and division to spread

Disturbed, corrupted and self-destructive

wheels of plans long in motion

every outcome designed and constructed

the end of the world is coming now

A dark and bloody star in the east

and the banner above a crown of thorns

upon the throne of fire and the kingdom of bones

Push comes to shove and the end-game begins

carbonised by a war that devours all sins

friend or foe, it doesn't matter anymore

today is the day the end-game begins

undeterred this path is mutually self-destructive

mind games of wars commencing

every outcome planned out and hands sorted

the world is slowly exploding

A dark and bloody star in the east

rising to greet us with blood

the flame and the iron fist 

and the explosion of metal

Push comes to shove and the end-game begins

carbonised by a war that devours all sins

friend or foe, it doesn't matter anymore

today is the day the end-game begins

Stripped of life and the land

charred and ruined in the grip of winter

bliss is burned off the face of the earth

broken and deformed by the grip of winter

Today is the day the end-game begins

far-flung powers playing by new rules

blood is the price of their sins

but one day the priest

shall become the sacrifice

Push comes to shove and the end-game begins

carbonised by a war that devours all sins

friend or foe, it doesn't matter anymore

today is the day the end-game begins

The End
