Off in the East, the sound of the beast,
Calling through the midnight air;
Sixteen fortnights and a battle fair,
No war was lost to the West.

The sound of the drums, and marching man's hums,
Fighting the weary feet;
The soldiers come through the valley of pain,
An ambush laid as they weep.

In sixteen fortnights not a soul was lost,
But there in the forlorn plains,
Twelve thousand will die,
To rise to the final plane.

Off in the East, no soldier was found,
Our lord called them home;
The march was endless, the battle relentless,
The snow to become their tomb.

Our gods have left us for more worthy men,
But we drag on in bitter frost;
To be with our wives, no matter the cost,
We will return home from the East.

General Winter, the lord of frost
is obviously a fake.
that's what they thought,
until one day,
killed a guy named Blake.

Walkety, walk walk, Stalkety, stalk stalk.
Is the sound of me
I walk
and stalk
right behind thee.

Smiley face has a somberero
and everyone wonders every once in awile
"Now who drew that crazy somberero".
Then nearby, a stalker thinks: i did, i did.

Through the clouds
My thoughts roam
Some of me, you
My mind plots a coup

Through the clouds
My thoughts roam
Some of her, me
What happened to my glee?

Through the clouds
My thoughts roam
Some of the unthinkable

What my thoughts make me do next
Makes the unthinkable come to life

What happens next?
I ask myself as time rushes,
Eager to meet a day I dread.

How shall I prepare for this day?
Should I come unforgiving
With guns at the ready,
Ready to face my doom?
Or should I hold a cloud above my head
And hope the lighting strikes me too soon?

I've been draphted into a war.
One I know that I am going to lose.
All I've done to prepare
Is lock myself in a cage.
Panicked and weeping
Praying this would all go away.

Now I face the fact that this day will come anyway.
And the battle will only last for a day.
But the war will rage forever.



What is this beauty?
