Clash Of The Two Tribes (Steelwing)

Old man, tell us of the past before the wastelands: we must know at last Legends, stories we have heard but you lived when the mighty fires scorched the world Son, I remember, The elder said; A time of chaos, a time of dread In the east awoke the sleeping bear Its roar of anger reached where eagles dare Ideologies uncompromised became the seeds of hatred and despise We would do anything lest all we knew be destroyed We would do anything we could to avoid the clash Diplomatic tension, coiled up as a spring If unleashed would surely bring us to the brink of destruction So what lay ahead; our survival on a razors edge Naturally assured destruction seemed at last the only way peace could be guaranteed We would do anything lest all we knew be destroyed We would do anything we could to avoid the clash Two sides of the world, alliances formed dividing the earth for the oncoming storm An arms race like never before provided the tools of the ultimate war [Lead: Vega ] No one knows who cast the first stone but surely the die had been thrown War waged at the highest of costs: all hope for the future was finally lost Elimination imminent all bridges burnt all chances spent Technology and wealth would cease for patriotic pride to please The cry of a billion souls as one The world as we knew it came undone
