lyrics

So it is said that the lonely ones
Who would wander, bereft by those Seljuq sons
Would die and weep, their souls would keep and take the grounds

Oh our excursions they made a row
To win these old hearts did require a vow
Austerity, the only route to smash the gods

Steel shepherds lay down, by the old mill my friends
Feathered fears be woken, conscience saves these sounds
If it seems to fade, young ones should gather round

So we keep thinking “why is it must”?
That the wind might settle, turn into dust
The shrines they built to smother out the sarus cranes

The steps they smashed, his name they dubbed
But it sure looked like Beelzebub
The angled forms turn into spheres and back they turn

Steel shepherds lay down, by the old mill my friends
Feathered fears be woken, conscience saves these sounds
If it seems to fade, young ones should gather round
