The fairest summer

And the skies were blue
Fairest summer ever known
Sweet lily blossom fragrance
Mingled with scent of
Power and mortal glory
Headed for the precipice
Join hands all friends in cataclysm
And thread the world's ending, the last wiener waltz

In the shadow of your fellow man
Do you believe in the power of life
Hearken to matters of state
Or, do you believe in the power of lies

A world divided in all its time
In an embrace of metal and steel
Its dreams a shard in rapids
Greed ascends and the horizon disappears
A world divided in all its time
In an embrace of metal and steel
Its dreams a shard in rapids
Are there blue skies
Beyond smoke of burning humanity

Peace showed them its face
But they showed that all the ways
Do not lead back to Rome
So where did the road go rulers of old?
Power and mortal glory
Headed for the precipice
Join hands all friends in cataclysm
And thread the world's ending, the last wiener waltz

A world divided in all its time
In an embrace of metal and steel
Its dreams a shard in rapids
Does it matter?
What's left to be seen, after the last, wiener waltz

Power and mortal glory
Headed for the precipice
But first we'll take a dance along it
In iron, blood and fire!

Epilouge:

The struggle to turn the wheel leave us stranded, lost
With fading memories of all we won
An olden poet's truth that a heritage now turned from twelve to one
'Cause thirteen is no lucky number or so 'tis always said to been
So descendants just feel free
Borrow this line and carve
On the highest of now empty towers
Here's a race of many promises
That never even reached, its teens
