White Angel in the Sky

In a time when only planes existed
The great ones walked between the worlds
Stepping stones of the gods
In the grasp of sovereign dragons
Empowering the wingless ones
The darkness grew slowly and expanded
But none of them would believe
That out of the womb of order and truth
There could breed such a chaos

And Universal
Creeping freeze

The gods played Gathering cards
Blind hope to repel
The force that came up
From under them
But their hands were down
She was nowhere to be seen
As the swamps took over the lands

And the dark
Took over the lands
As the dark
Took over the lands

There was a white angel in the sky
White angel in the sky
For our time
She stood there so young
Like an Amazon
With a flag of white
The clouds formed so high
White angel in the sky
Before our time
She flew above so bright
Her wings made an arc
With sword and flag of white


But there was a distant plain
Where light could be seen again
While bad dragons flew and breathed

While bad dragons
Flew and breathed

Undead powers claimed for their crew
And then the gods turned her over
There was silence as they paused up to see

There was silence
As they paused to see

A white angel in the sky
From the clouds formed so high
Before our time
She flew above so free
Wings of maiden flight
Sword and flag of white
White angel in the sky
Their hour has drawn nigh
Crystals of her time
Stood over them in youth
The beauty of her truth
Would strike them all down

From the clouds so high
Formed angel in the sky
From our minds
You who are unique
Made by we the meek
This is now your time
The rulers of our world
Will give to you my girl
The gift of afterlife
You will be the Arc
Of the Maid of Orleans
With a flag of white
