Vultures tear flesh from the rotting corpses of those
destined for power
Only to be provisions for the scavengers that are left behind
Such an epic downfall, defeated and slain
Eternally butchered and back where they belong
The dirt absorbs the vital fluids
Draining from the king of the dead
Forked tongues and a million eyes
Watch the sun feast upon his flesh
A parasitic banquet, see him waste away
Collect the lifeless this earth is cleansed
Opportune for a new beginning, his holy creation restored
Victorious wings fill the sky to make sure it is done
Swords still drawn or at their side
Cadavers town limb from limb heaped burned and forgotten
The smoke and the stench of hells legion fills the air
Life returns infection eradicated
Affliction disappears but only for a little while
Transgression can only be held down for so long
But the serpent is home now
Such an epic downfall, defeated and slain
Fuck for all eternity, where they belong

    My OpinionAwesome song. The first song of The Red Shore I ever heard. And it's amazing. Not too sure what it's about, obviously the death / murder or a king or leader? Possibly by an enemy, who then overruns a group of people, just generally takes over. That's my take on it
