Darkest Hour


The Angel Of The Odd
..beautifully written lyrics.

Very beautifully written. I'm particularly fond of the first two stanzas:

We buried our sons
We turned and fled

No growing old
The glorious dead
But we came back
Because one man said
Now on the beaches
The blood runs red

I faced them down
The only one
I stood alone
And warned the day would come

But they were wrong
Appeases every one
And not for the last time
We all stand alone


Love in anger
I have reached the conclusion that this song is the bastard child of Bruce Dickinson’s “Eternal” and Dokken’s “Alone Again”. Prove me wrong.
