Orc Song 2

We are no mindless orcs
We are the fighting Uruk-hai
While men sleep
We wear their world away.

Beat the black drums
Till nightfall comes
War without ceasing
It is the Age of the Orc.

Red Eye and White Hand
Our banners fill the sky
The Elves in shining mail
We have laid in the dust.

What do we care for forests?
Your cities we lay waste.
From caverns of night
We lay seige to the light.

'Bring out your king
From whatever hole
He is hiding in!'
His time has come.

Beat spear on shield
Rouse the Dead
To fight for you
Our time has come as well.
