Terror raining down from the sky
A baby running with her mother
On this the day they will die

The king has mandated total loyalty
Annihilate them all
Since the only ones that matter are royalty

Mass destruction all around
Screams of pain
And family homes burned to the ground

Independent thinking people unite
As evil hangs in the air
We Pray for their souls tonight
