"The Clarion Call" as written by and Stefan Weinerhall....
All our visions of sweet tomorrow
Is cracking and fading away.
Hopes of glory are drowned in sorrow
This dissension expels us to yesterday.

Lead your troops into your lust of pride
They'll fight so brave at heart.
Or cast the yoke of envy aside
And keep the land from falling apart.

Do you hear the clarion call,
It's calling out to one and all.
Who will live and who will fall,
Who will walk the golden hall.
Do you hear the clarion call,
It's calling out to one and all.
Who is right and who is wrong,
Whose side is god really on.

What are the alliances and treaties for
As pretenders yet look to the sky.
All the trumpets will sound once more
And victory will be given another try.

Do you hear the clarion call,
It's calling out to one and all.
Our blood must be spilled
So the nobles' visions can be fulfilled.

The night harvests our land
While the dissidents reach for their dreams.
The nations' split by false hands
While their prize slowly vaporize
Into a steam that escape their eyes.
A fool is he who cannot foresee,
Hell is what this, our land will be.
Yes hell what is this, our land will be.

Do you hear the clarion call,
It's calling out to one and all.
Which side will finally prevail,
While the other side will fail.

How many pretenders can we endure?
The land is bleeding, so not many more.
Who may better the royal sceptre sway?
Questions, questions,
You'll see at the end of the day.

    General CommentIt's clearly about war, and then of course it's coupled with the notion that we may never really know which side is right, or how no side is right, and war ultimately does nothing for the people invovled, and how politics can jerk us around.

    General CommentIts not just about war. Its about the war between religions. Its saying that for thousands of years different religions around the world have come up with theories and beliefs to explain what isn't known. And it was through these beliefs that great conflicts and wars have started between these belief systems. For instance, many of the old age pagan religions in Europe believe in many gods whereas many of the religions in Asia only believe in one. Hence between both sides began making attempts of converting or persecuting the other. The Romans persecuted the Christians and then the Christians did the whole Witch Trials thing against the Wiccans. This conflict has never ceased. Even today there is that conflict. Many conformist/fundamentalist Christians, Jews, and Muslims are still not so open minded to other beliefs. And then there's the infamous Varg Vikernes, who has burnt of many European Churches because he believes in a "Europe waking up" and that the Asian religions are infecting the pagan religions. These conflicts have been going on for thousands of years and there likely to continue for thousands to come.

    Now the point that Falconer is trying to make is no one really knows what God is like; is he a god of love, wrath, or both; Does he exist in the form of one god/goddess, or many gods/goddesses; Or what side is he really on, or if he's even on a side. And its ridiculous that people have been fighting, converting, and killing each other for thousands of years for beliefs that may not even hold true.

    King Diamond is also known for saying that irrefutable truth about religion.
