Auxilium meum a Domino
The LORD is my shepherd I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside the still waters
He restoreth my soul
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
For his name's sake

Yea, though I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil for thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me

Thou preparest a table before me
In the presence of mine enemies
Thou anoitest my head with oil
My cup runneth over

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house
Of the Lord for ever

    General CommentDave puts a lot of war-like sounds in the background of this song. Think about it...there's a burning torch, hoof-pounding of a horse, harsh winds, and war drums. I think he's trying with the harsh voice to sound like an ancient general. So, I think this song is Dave's rousing speech before battle.

    To take it further (off course?) I think this may be Dave saying "I'm still here and I'm still ready to fight for metal."
