In the Shadow of Foreign Horses Lyrics

5. In the Shadow of Foreign Horses (6:32)
Hark the blazing steeds
kicking up earth
full speed assault
to decimate foreign tribes
fire soaked homes
built of earthen clay
crudely tended fields
burning in mid day

Obscure weapons
cutting flesh like crop
discomfited farmers
scatter to and fro
brandishing sticks
and odd hunting tools
sat upon beasts
without saddles or courage

Riding to destroy
slaughter for the king
bastard swine flurry
spearless warriors
huddled in cattle barns
hiding children witness
the price of the unRome
in the shadow of foreign horses

Their destiny chained to failure
scurrying rat bastards
try to protect their kin
cannot stop the western minds
clad in bronze and arrogance

Filed into columns cretin men
observantly weak broken beings
scuffle in ring and chain
embarrassed by their cowardice

Spineless inherited
sold as slaven yolk folk
tripping on their bondage and
weeping at their fertile ground

Bonded boarded woman
shame their use as a herd
savage men, kennel whipped
Colosseum fod' for the games

Unruly hoodlums
beaten to death naked and hung
the dead sweat from their brow
kissed away by widowed lips

Servant brands bestowed
blistered on arms of the owned
hungry children grip
iron locked bars of the cage
these miserable bastards
class segregated
and trimmed for coin and master

Bonded, locked away as bullion
broken... cast away like wild beast
their servant brands bestow
