We are not who you think we are.
We are soldiers. We are bringers of death, descending on feathered wings, weapons in hand.
Our wings are not white. They are soaked in the blood of devils.
We are not bound by God. We are bound to our generals, forever their obedient dogs.
We are not the angels you love, not the angels you believe in. We are the hypocrites, the warriors who speak peace as our blades drink blood, who sing of freedom as we enslave the world.
We are marching, and we won’t be stopped. We are the end.
