Releasing us to our burning desires.
Over your objections we shall conquer.
My steel shall slaughter your thirst
And leave us to our own destiny.
Neither man nor beast shall stand in our path,
This I vow until my last breath.
I love you, shall be written in the stars
Completing our journey destined by the Creator.
