Kingdoms in decline

Cry out!
towards the heavens
the fields are burning
and the oceans rise
all is clear to me now
as trumpets sound from the hill
and drums in the deep

bloodcovered banners in the wind
they mean nothing to me anymore
they were all the same
they are all to blame

the blind weep
and the knowing
redirect their stare
inwards

Victoria rides her dark horse
towards the inevitable end
