lyrics

Below me are thousands of men
They growl from their stomachs I’ll be an easy conquer
Arrogantly they enter the trail without an inkling they will fail
That’s not my problem

At your first respite from the ascent
Your eyes will only believe what they want to
Now as the clouds move, you realize there’s more up to go
Well that’s not in my control

Now you think you’ve had enough?
Now you think that this is tough?
Now you’re feeling more unsure?
Now the men no longer roar?
Where was this feeling before?
We’ve only just begun

It seems the group has thinned in size
Now the growl in their stomachs is for food and water
You remember hours ago, when they joked that I’m a piece of cake?
Well that wasn’t my mistake

Now you think you’ve had enough?
Now you think that this is tough?
Now you’re feeling some regrets?
How'll they ration what is left?
Now you pray that you are blessed?
We’ve only just begun

First you said it’s not much
Now it’s more like the sight of your dreams getting crushed
By the sight of a soldier that called you a friend who is screaming and crying "oh when will this end"
Now the plan’s been thrown and you are on your own

Now you think you’ve had enough?
Now you think that this is tough?
Now you’re bleeding and you're sore
Now you’re trembling to your core
Where was this feeling before?
We’ve only just begun

First you said it’s not much
Now it’s more like the sound of your bones getting crushed
By a boulder that rolled and took you and your path
And the branch you thought sturdy that snapped you in half
Now the plan’s been thrown and you are on your own
