Ten Thousand Strong Lyrics
A gathering summoned by the Elder
The consequence of what's imminent
A prophecy dark foreboding
Forces them to face human intent

The chosen seek refuge in the mountains
Reluctantly their loved ones recognize
The sacrifice they must adhere to
The only hope for future Setian life
Like a Martyr sacrifice

Await the day of clouding
Earth mother's sharing in our pain
Erase the human memory
They know not of where they came
And though our hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vain they did not suffer
Then Thousand Strong will seize the day

What we possess. Mankind is after
Direct descendants of the Architect
Children of God, seeds of creation
The stakes so high we must never relent

While in wait 'till human minds are clouded
Initiation of the Master Plan
Assimilate and build new life among them
Centuries will past, patience will win
We are the bane of man

Await the day of clouding
Earth mother's sharing in our pain
Erase the human memory
They know not of where they came
And though our hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vain they did not suffer
Then Thousand Strong will seize the day

Earth Mother's crying out in pain
We have to wipe the tears away
Our hearts are broken
Ten thousand strong seize the day
