The Battle of Kadesh

I hear the call, I hear the trumpet screaming in the east
Great walls fall, kowtow to the unseen beast
In the shimmering haze, march across the melting valley floor
Under moonlight gaze, blue sheets of ancient lore
They walk among us now, tongues of flame in their eyes
And if you ever feel in doubt, just cast a cold eye to the skies
But the houses burn silent, and the streets are stained with blood
When the horses come on Allen, will it be a wasted flood?

Stand guard within ear, stare out into eternal space
Hear the words I want to hear, fear what I have to face
In the dying heat, step across the black tar land
With the pounding beat, scmitar in her hands
The pain, the pain, the pain, the pain of my Egyptian victory
Her tears flood her face, this space, my place, my place of recovery
Through the gates of the desert, I carry you to a golden place
Know that this is where I get better in the dusts of open fate

Hey babe, I wanna say, the things that you don't wanna know
Look down, look around, you can but oh don't you know
Friend in need, knows the scene, don't know what to do
Here's the truth, just for you, I'm not sad and hey that'll do
