Berserker’s Lament

I was commissioned for this song for Burns’ “Are You Afraid of Vampires?” quest, and this is what he has to say on it:
“A song based on the dim fate of the Berserkers who turned into Tormented souls in the Necrovion Graveyard, who, instead of becoming Barren Souls and powerful healers, use their terrible force not to protect others, but only for themselves and for destruction.”

To our land
The Shadow comes
Not with Fire
Nor with drums
Yet in the land
Of wisest Sage
The Shadow roars
And spreads its rage

Ever onwards,
Shadow crawl
Ever louder,
The battle call

 At the heart
Of all the land
Berserkers fought
And made their stand
Many fell
From sides of each
But victory
Lay far from reach

Ever onwards,
Shadow crawl
Ever louder,
The battle call

In the Shadow
Berserkers wait
Tortured ever,
Denied the gate
But the land
Still tells their story
In its tears
Of Death and Glory
