In the long ago In the time before sun Nothing swam in the oceans Nothing crawled in the silence Did she awaken? From the shadow world Came a clamor of woe Mother Bear and her famine Found their way in the darkness Was she mistaken? “Dear Mother, why are you weeping so? Banish your anguish and join your Father Toad.” Into her mouth “It won’t be the same!” Back to the dark “You’ll curse my name!” Sickness begins “Now all will be changed!” Dark turns to fire “Now Ur is reclaimed!”
Under Egyptian moonlight Infiltrating the tomb Scourge of Uraeus will spell their doom Gleaming jewels of Anubis In the catacomb walls Shapes in the dark turn to snapping jaws Crawling through the catacombs The scraping steps of ancient bones The withered voice of stone and dust “Your life, your soul, entombed with us.” Under Egyptian moonlight Where the pyramid waits Tempting the wicked to test their fate Curse, bless, pray, die!
Deep into the wilderness The hidden realm of Giantess Cavalcade of rotting bones Something says you’re not alone Frost Giantess Your reign is at an end Bringing forth the scimitar Forged within the Swamps of Ur Only way to end the tale Peace returned unto the vale Frost Giantess Your reign is at an end Centuries of torment Our livestock ripped to shreds War is on the horizon We shall have our revenge Now I face the Giantess Dripping with the peasants’ blood Bringing forth the scimitar Separate her frothing head
It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down I had the radio on, I was driving Trees flew by, me and Del were singing Little Runaway I was flying Felt so good like anything was possible I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes The last three days the rain was unstoppable It was always cold, no sunshine I rolled on as the sky grew dark I put the pedal down to make some time There's something good waiting down this road I'm picking up whatever is mine
