    DUNGEONS OF WAR ©G. Whitman (BMI)
    I have seen the faces of eyes that have turned to walk away,
    a trembling hand upon the hilt
    the skies of blue turn to a dismal grey
    Many feet in a foreign land
    many banners raised
    This I’ve seen, and shall see again, unless the faults of mankind are erased!

    Away from the Dungeons (of War) where the fire falls like rain!
    And how many lives are spent in a mask of flaming pain?
    In need of a reason they shall stain the sinner’s sword
    With futile hopes of gaining a crown as the ‘just’ reward

    (Lead – Chorus 1 Repeat)

    Tears are shed over brothers lost
    half a man never feels the same
    The hands still clean of the men behind the scenes
    of satan’s games
    I have seen the faces of those who’ll never really walk away
    Empty Stares, a bleeding heart, and vengeance stored ‘till the final day

    Away from the Dungeons (of War) where the innocent are slain!
    And how many lives are spent in a daze of placing blame?
    This is the season to make plowshares from our swords
    With future hopes of gaining peace as the ‘just’ reward

    (Lead – Chorus 2 Repeat)

"Although (we're) not self identified as progressive, that is what the reviewers were likening us to. We don't cater to that, but we don't mind - but not everything we do classifies as a progressive song, it's more about the diversity of styles on our releases that gives us a progressive feel overall..." comments Whitman in a recent podcast interview.
