Verse 1:
A. High upon their tower, reigning over all.
The Sisters are assembled inside their hallowed hall.
Mothers of the future decide the fate of man
To overcome their enemies, or make their final stand.
B. They are the daughters of the tyrant, They obey his will.
Armed with ancient memories, His life flows in them still.
Verse 2:
A. The Captain and the General, Renowned fighting men,
Hunting down the Spider Queen, Deep inside her den.
Their bodies are their weapons, Faster than the eye,
They cry upon the battlefield, Save the Sisterhood or die.
B. They are the sons of the Tyrant, They enforce his will
Born with ancient memories, His blood flows in them still.
Verse 3:
A On the morning after, Many there have died.
Is there defeat in victory? The Sisters wonder why.
Why must men die in battle? Are all wars fought in vain?
They ask the age-old question, The answer still the same
B For the children of the Tyrant, Who live out his will.
Carry on his memory, His Golden Path lives still.
