lyrics

Laymen and high-born
Heed the loathsome day
Cut through the party line
Bring the heavy rains
Playful and time worn
See the colours fade into the grey dawn
Bring the new day

You are only in the sun
Not in the shade, you claim

Be it a strike against your name
Or the black ribbon swathe through the day
Or the taut muscle bared to the rain
See the lone tower over the way
I will ride every cold cresting wave

Laymen and high-born
Heed the loathsome day
Cut through the party line
Bring the heavy rains
Playful and time worn
See the colours fade into the grey dawn
Bring the new day

You are only in the sun
Not in the shade, you claim

Be it known that we are changed as
Their long cry fades away
Thine enemy hold tight
Know the right thing to say
I won't kneel
By the way
Blind and ever unchained I flee the right
For the black ribbon swathe through the day
Or the taut muscle bared to the rain
See the lone tower over the way
I will ride
Every cold
Cresting wave
