Shattered Glass

Beneath the Shifting Sands

Silent, waiting aeons long.
Hissing a wordless command.
What was once shall rise again,
break the walls and set us free…

We await the day of truth
to fulfill the prophecies.
What was written and foreseen
must soon be made real…

Countless eyes following us,
eyeless face beyond.
With his name upon our lips,
for the god we strike…

    Storms of sand announce our come,
    the air stirrs as we march forth…

    From far below we now emerge,
    from deep within the earth.
    Raise the scepter to the sky,
    sound the call we waited for.
    To your foot we bring the seal,
    we now mock your victory.
    We have waited for this day,
    beneath the shifting sands…

Two emperors, but one land,
one empire, once again.
Poison stings piercing your heart,
poison clouding the blue skies.

Tell us, what have you come for?
Only death awaits you here.
Tell us, what do you seek here?
Only whispers of the sand…

Ancient powers, magic strong,
armies wild and feral march.
We were here before your birth,
we shall be after your death.

    Storms of sand announce our come,
    the air stirrs as we march forth…

    From far below we now emerge,
    from deep within the earth.
    Raise the scepter to the sky,
    sound the call we waited for.
    To your foot we bring the seal,
    we now mock your victory.
    We have waited for this day,
    beneath the shifting sands…

Sealed us once and now us woke,
fools are coming, fools don’t leave.
Fools you were to set us free,
let us thank you with your blood…

Hear the god whisper to you,
hear the prayer’s chant.
Time has come, the fateful day,
we are once again alive!

    Storms of sand announce our come,
    the air stirrs as we march forth…

    From far below we now emerge,
    from deep within the earth.
    Raise the scepter to the sky,
    sound the call we waited for.
    To your foot we bring the seal,
    we now mock your victory.
    We have waited for this day,
    beneath the shifting sands…
