we fight alone up in a covert operation
wade through the litigation
from the dark side of the line
look alive stand tall now do not reveal your secrets
generations of achievements shall not be left behind
i never knew there was a hidden source of power
the ancients built this tower
that we all must keep alive
it's the same alliance
that brought us to this notion
like the movement in the ocean
all directions we will strive
i hear you
you feel me
a force that's so strong we will always see
i need you
i bleed you
to a world that's far from free
in the hidden shadows of everyday battles stands a man

    General CommentI think it is we are men and we are prime.
    And the song IMO is about the battle between a man and his surroundings. It's called The Joust after all and it basically means that we as me are warriors and we should fight for something. In the darkening shadows of every deep battle stands a man, behind all ideals wars are fought by men. Not to say the song is specifically about war but about the battles we choose for ourselves.

    General Comment3rd verse:
    The time has moved on, but our strength has been awakened
    The true meaning forsaken, from the mountain we will shine.
    It's the stable weathers that has brought us to the closure,
    It's done, but it's not over. We are men and we are fine.

    He sings it very clear, strange no one has posted it yet.
