"Throw Down The Sword" as written by Andrew Powell, David Turner, Martin Turner and Steve Upton....
[Chorus:]
Throw down the sword
The fight is done and over
Neither lost, neither won
To cast away the fury of the battle
And turn my weary eyes for home

There were times when I stood at death's own door
Only hoping for an answer

[Chorus]

There were times when I stood at death's own door
Only searching for an answer

    General CommentThis song is wonderful: it's a great blend of folky British sounds and classic prog/early metal energy. To me, it's telling the story of an English hero who old and tired of fighting with victory just in sight. This could be a metaphor for any kind of struggle.

    Epic man.

    General CommentThe composition of the song is brought to the perfection: 2 min guitar intro, 2 min singing, and 2 min guitar two barrel closing solo.

    General CommentThese lyrics are INCOMPLETE.

    There is an extra verse

    Throw down the sword,
    And leave the glory
    A story time can never change.
    To walk the road, the load I have to carry
    A journey's end, a wounded soul.
