Called softly on the kindling winds
And then a golden flash like the onset of Heaven
And in the grip of fire

What will you see with your innocence there?
Where will you be when they tense for warfare?
Where will you be when God is glorifying?
Where will you be my darling?

For lying passive in the shadows whilst the enemy reigns
'By command of the king of Heaven'

How will they see when the truth is blinding?
Where will you be when they're vilifying?
Where will you be when the dark is rising?
Where will you be my darling?

On the saintly iron maiden as she fell from her wound
But visions and ambition
And she was on a mission from the highest above
Like a sword through hissing water
For the death of love
The righteous death of love
Gilles adored her drama
Blazed against the English in a torrent of light
And as they rallied onto night
Dissolving...
Framed amid the thick of fire
She made him click without desire

Her words would leave a scar
Will we shine amidst the brightest stars'
How will you breathe when their wheels are turning?
Where will you be my darling?

Will you not flee and label me pariah?
Where will you be when they light my pyre?
Aligned with Joan in all
He swore to score the crimes
Crimes he knew alone
The church unfurled for murder perched

Aflame, a Valkyrie
And in his eyes she swam a Goddess
And even when she fought for breath
'For only in the grip of darkness



Called softly on the kindling winds
And then a golden flash like the onset of Heaven
And in the grip of fire

What will you see with your innocence there?
Where will you be when they tense for warfare?
Where will you be when God is glorifying?
Where will you be my darling?

For lying passive in the shadows whilst the enemy reigns
'By command of the king of Heaven'

How will they see when the truth is blinding?
Where will you be when they're vilifying?
Where will you be when the dark is rising?
Where will you be my darling?

On the saintly iron maiden as she fell from her wound
But visions and ambition
And she was on a mission from the highest above
Like a sword through hissing water
For the death of love
The righteous death of love
Gilles adored her drama
Blazed against the English in a torrent of light
And as they rallied onto night
Dissolving...
Framed amid the thick of fire
She made him click without desire

Her words would leave a scar
Will we shine amidst the brightest stars'
How will you breathe when their wheels are turning?
Where will you be my darling?

Will you not flee and label me pariah?
Where will you be when they light my pyre?
Aligned with Joan in all
He swore to score the crimes
Crimes he knew alone
The church unfurled for murder perched

Aflame, a Valkyrie
And in his eyes she swam a Goddess
And even when she fought for breath
'For only in the grip of darkness
