We were gods once

the words that we uttered
the words that we screamed
are the words we spoke
in our darkest dreams
the armor was thin
our skin was broken
we were gods once
our bodies – oaken
we are now earthen animals
unchained and unbound
masters once again
on this earth – round
we speak the tongue
of wind and fire
songs to be sung
of our one true desire
lords of the elements
lords of the spirit
lords of our destiny
the universe – we inherit
