We Stand Outside
Click Here For Sung Version ( Real Audio )


We stand outside your firelight,
and we wait.
We are Legend.
We are the Little Folk.
We are the Feet-in-the-Night.
The devil in the mist.
The arrow from the dark.
The wilding in the woods.
We are the Dark Horde.

Listen to the honestone that whickers down the blade!

As you huddle next to your fire
Listen to the howls from the darkness around you.
Ours the howl!
We are the hot breath down your neck
As your fires dim;
And the eyes that watch.
We wear no man's collar.
We are the Dark Horde.

Listen to the honestone that whickers down the blade!

Crowns will pass from your heads,
Castles will crumble and fall.
We are the deathless wolf that rebuilds your fire
And smiles when you eat to repletion.
(Are you fat enough yet?)
You will be.
We are the Dark Horde.

See the firelight gleaming on the edges of the blade!

Sleep well and deeply by your fire,
For the wolves are waiting.
Laughing and free,
Armed and agile,
We wait for tomorrow,
For tomorrow is OURS.
And your day will pass, as all days do.

WE ARE THE DARK HORDE



Our ways are not your ways. Your titles and honors mean nothing to us;
the ideals they represent and the esteem you express in giving them mean everything.
