As the horses take their stride

All the ponies must die for the horses to take their strides, And O’ won’t those horses run wild and high, With wings they would take strides over the seas and shrines, And one day people will sing of them, in fairytales they would ride, Locked once again these people with ponies will come to…

Together we shall remain

When there is heart in me, There is heart in you   When there is reason in me, There is reason in you   When there is life in me, Then breathe you do   Together we shine, together we remain, Whatever happens, one we stay   When I see the road, I will lead…

Give meaning to peace   Treason, not hither not thither, Divine trust credits deceit, Silence thy killing daggers, My ale is going weak…
