War! War and death! Here’s to you,
my friends most beloved!
Come hither and wade these rivers of blood,
Come and take what you will of what rests in my wake!
Peace! Peace and hope! Fie to you,
my enemies hated and hunted!
Send away your words and deeds of love,
No place in my heart waits for you to rest there!
Love! Love or Lust! Where now are you hidden?
Oh thou villainous rages!
Let me find you my lost and forgotten,
Seize me tonight and let me not fail!
Eternity where are you?
my mother of dreams!
Why hide your son from his rightful realm,
Where will you cry your tears when I am shunned?
