Testo one for the vine - genesis

Fifty thousand men were sent to do the will of one.

His claim was phrased quite simply
though he never voiced it loud


I am he
the chosen one.



In his name they could slaughter
for his name they could die.

Though many there were believed in him
still more were sure he lied


But they'll fight the battle on.



Then one whose faith had died

Fled back up the mountainside


But before the top was made


A misplaced footfall made him stray

>From the path prepared for him.

Off of the mountain


On to a wilderness of ice.



This unexpected vision made them stand and shake with fear


But nothing was his fright compared with those who saw him appear.

Terror filled their minds with awe.



Simple were the folk who lived

Upon this frozen wave.

So not surprising was their thought


This is he
God's chosen one


Who's come to save us from

All our oppressors.
/>
We shall be kings on this world.



Follow me!

I'll play the game you want me


Until I find a way back home.



Follow me!

I give you strength inside you


Courage to win your battles--



No
no
no
this can't go on


This will be all that I fled from.

Let me rest for a while.



He walked into a valley


All alone.

There he talked with water
and then with the vine.



They leave me no choice.

I must lead them to glory or most likely to death.



They travelled cross the plateau of ice
up to its edge.

Then they crossed a mountain range and saw the final plain.

Still he urged the people on.



Then
on a distant slope


He observed one without hope

Flee back up the mountainside.

He thought he recognised him by his walk


And by the way he fell


And by the way he

Stood up
and vanished into air
