A Terrible Visitation Lyrics

by Frost Like Ashes

I've seen the future... And you die

All faces wax pale...

Deep within the trembling begins
Trumpets sounding warning and war
Watching from a tower of sin
Over the mountain
Comes the Black Swarm
As the dawn spreading
His dark army comes raging
A day of gloom and darkness
Nothing at all can escape
They move as horses of war
Ears bleeding from the roar
And the sound of crackling fire
They leap from peak onto peak
They move with a blink of the eye
They scale the walls like locust
They crush through all defenses
They do not break their ranks

Tear and shred your hearts
For they are coming for you
They fly from the sky like hail
All faces wax pale...
What dread to be found
In grasp of an angry God
At the lifting of the veil
All faces wax pale...

Going on before them a raging fire consumes
Left in wake behind them a blazing fire burns
Lain in glory before them a virgin garden looms
Lain in waste behind them a raped and desolate urn
They rush into the city
Pitch black flood pouring over the walls
There is no refuge from them
Through each crevice they crawl
They enter through the windows as warriors drawn for battle
At the very sight of their shadows
The blood drains from every face

Tear and shred your hearts
For they are coming for you
They fly from the sky like hail
All faces wax pale...
What dread to be found
In grasp of an angry God
At the lifting of the veil
All faces wax pale...

Lord Sabaoth screams before His great army and mighty army
The Strong execute His Word
Who can endure it?
Open your spiritual eyes
Even now they come your way
You cannot stand against them
The hounds of Heaven seek your soul
No one and nothing at all can escape this force
They do not break their ranks
Who can endure it?
There is no refuge from them and you cannot stand against them
See, even now they come your way
The hounds of Heaven seek your soul
Seek your soul!

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
