"From Ruins We Rise" as written by and Greg Donnelly John Abernathy....
Enslaved to the cold earths scorn we lie buried and long forgotten
Once heroes loved by our kingdom we decay in a nameless tomb
For we journeyed forth on a path of empty promises paved by the bones of our predecessors

We gained nothing for what was lost
This throne was left to shatter in this endless frost

Enslaved to the cold earths scorn we lie buried and long forgotten
Once heroes loved by our kingdom we decay in nameless tomb
Our crown has been relinquished, overthrown from the throne
Forgotten as we fade to bone flesh withers beneath unmarked stones

Those who escaped this fate, the very ones we saved
They breathe the air above, as nails seal us in and dirt piles fall upon us
They journey onward as we rot below

How could it end like this?
We sacrificed it all, only to perish, only to fall
Frantic fists strike this casket lid a splintered hand escapes
Blistered claws climb up through hardened soil

Break free the chains of this earth, retribution fuels an unholy rebirth
Break free the chains of this earth for retribution

We rise
We have risen from the grief of the grave
Seeking those who enslaved and the ones that we saved
The tellers of false fortunes shall suffer
This skeletal onslaught rides to reclaim the crown
A path of our journey traced by the bodies of liars

We gained nothing for what was lost
This throne was left to shatter in this endless frost
Limb by limb and piece by piece, bone by bone your life is released
We cleave and we hack and we rip and we tear and we break and we sever

We rise from this burial reborn no longer lost souls to be mourned
Er for human flesh to be torn
An undead army enslaved to bitterness and scorn, we hung
