raise your sword lyrics – letter to the exiles

raise your sword. cast down your idols. turn your back,
on that which has enslaved you.
cast down your chains and don’t pick them up again.
crimson stains have broken the chains and torn the veil
from your eyes.
advance the line, move forward and leave the dead all
behind. don’t look back, keep moving on.

open your eyes, we are taking back what’s ours, the
time has come now for salvation.
open your eyes, we are taking back what’s ours, the
time has come now for salvation.

our time is now. define yourself today. will you hold
the line? prove your ident*ty…
now claim your crown (now claim your crown), disown
your shame (disown your shame).
now claim your crown (now claim your crown), disown
your shame (disown your shame).

burn down the bridges, leading to your old ways. bring
them down and scatter the ashes. [2x]

open your eyes, we are taking back what’s ours, the
time has come now for salvation. [2x]

my weapon is more than…is more than perfect. i will
pursue them, with the sword.

burn down the bridges, leading to your old ways. bring
them down and scatter the ashes.
he will uphold you with his right hand (with his right
hand), he will dismember your enemies.

now claim your crown (now claim your crown), disown
your shame (disown your shame).
now claim your crown (now claim your crown), disown
your shame (disown your shame).
now claim your crown, disown your shame.

“some sat in darkness and the deepest gloom, prisoners
suffering in iron chains, for they had rebelled against
the words of god and despised the counsel of the most
high. so he subjected them to bitter labor; they
stumbled, and there was no one to help. then they cried
to the lord in their trouble, and he saved them from
their distress.” [psalm 107:10-13]
