A saturnine crawl across vile plains
Through allies, fallen and slain
She was the one
The spark of the flame
The whispers of love
The rebellion profane.

And she, the catalyst soul
Defied the tenets of paradise
Blazing wings in tow
She laid the Dominions low.
Heed the Seraphim’s words
She tells of her demise
The dread beauty of Elohim
And the persecution hymns.

Confined to the dark depths of the mountains
Thriving on meager prayers and beliefs
She held the blade
Of sedition and grief
The deific bane
The revolution and the relief.

Cast out in defeat...our faces were obscured
We were the demons of the sky
The mortal soul hungered to become so perfect and so pure
Thus did we rule them through Pride.
