The emprire of greed


Spreading their hateful seed


Seething fire in their eyes


To see their foes die


Armies at the border holds


Keeps parallel in the cold


Generals lead from the front 


The soldier bearing the brunt


Formations soon break


As armor clashes and quakes


Steel flashing in the snow


A series of unending steel blows


Blades chopping deep into flesh and bone


Spattering the snow covered stone


The wilderness laid to battle's waste


As men grind each other into pulpy paste


Hammer,bow,spear, and sword


Cries for aid from the Lord


Soon there is silence


There is no more defiance


Just the broken bodies on the rocky ground


Where still hearts once rung with battle's sound


Now it's just empty windless breath


On these frozen plains of death
