"From The Mouth Of Gath Comes Terror" as written by Travis Dean Bailey, David Edison Bunton, Joshua Michael Childers, Richard Allan Hall, Eric Allan Koruschak and Joshua Erik Scogin....
Too long you have cast a shadow
On the fields of the battle worn
Your existence a mockery of all we've fought and died for
Cower behind your juggernaut
This day he dies by my hand
Behold his legendary might brought low by pride

Cry war, cry hate
Step forward then to die
Cry war, cry hate
Step forward then to die
Cry death, cry defeat
Meet the wrath of God defied
Cry death, cry defeat
Meet the wrath of God defied

Your armor your shield your sword will not avail you
This battlefield will be your grave
The bane of Gath whose sword wrought terror in our hearts
For God and country we will slay
One shot ends this war

Fall the earth now greets your end
Fall rise and take back hard won ground
Fall by faith and stone laid down
Fall our heavy hearts now beat as those of heroes

Now you're pushin' up daisies baby
Oh, yeah

You were married to your destruction
You were married to your destruction
Tonight you shall wake up dead
Married to your destruction
You were married to your destruction
Tonight you shall wake up dead
And when the morning finds you
You will be no more
And when the morning finds you
You will be no more

Your armor your shield your sword will not avail you
This battlefield will be your grave
The bane of Gath whose sword wrought terror in our hearts
For God and country we will slay
One shot ends this war

Stand, fight, the city is ours
Stand, fight, the city is ours
Stand, fight, the city is ours
Stand, fight, the city is ours

    General CommentI think this song is about David and Goliath.
    "Cower behind your juggernaut," when Goliath was slain, I believe the Philistines all fled, their hope all lying on this one man, their most powerful fighter and, put simply, a giant.
    "One shot ends this war," and one shot was all it took. One, single stone from David's sling put the Philistine's champion face first in the dirt, illustrated by "Fall, the earth now greets your end."
    "Fall, by faith and stone laid down." Haha, need I say more?

    General CommentIchabod, I believe you're correct. Gath was a main city in Philistia, and was Goliath's home city. I never connected the Fall parts to the story....Or the "One shot ends this war" part either. Good going.

    General CommentThis is by far the best song on their CD. It's so flippin' sweet when they all screem together. And if you didn't know, the part where the say "You were married to your destruction.....", that is the lead vocalist from The Chariot. If you haven't heard the The Chariot, check the out.
