(Damh the Bard)

So there She is, looking at what we do to each other, in the name of religion, in the name of land, in the name of politics, and She shakes her head, not needing to take us yet, but we keep on coming, in ones, twos, and then by the thousand….

Fingers of mist caress soldiers and fallen kings,
A field lies silent as an old crow spreads her wings

What do you see?
What do you see?
Cast your viel over the Sun.

I have washed the blood away and each will take your turn,
Another life given to me when will you ever learn?

(Bridge 1)
And the will of man,
Lies heavy on the land,
Until you change your plan,
I’ll be ready.

Night is falling but it’s the noon of the day,
A flight of Ravens here to carry our souls away.

(Bridge 2)
I am the Phantom Queen,
And everything you’ve been,
And everything you’ve killed,
And all the blood you’ve spilled,
All the bullets and the guns,
All the Fathers and the Sons,
Lying dead in the streets,
Children crying at their feet,
Is this the world you want?
Look, the sun is fading away….
