Wind Of Horus Lyrics

Ashu Give us PowerTo Oppose this Legion of ShrikesThey hath Defiled our Monuments and GravesFor their Greed of TreasureAshu Sehu Neferui SkhennWe Are the Breath of HornsHot as the Desert WindWe are Slayers and Reapers of MenBy the Arrow Shot from LanataYou will Fall to your Knees Deador Begging QuarterTorn to Shreds by Obese VulturesFossilized in the Desert SandWe are the Breath of HornsHot as the Desert WindWe are the Slayers and Reapears of MenYou will Never EscapeThis Valley GallalaLeft to DecomposeForbidden the UnderworldBemused by Battle LustI Gash your ThroatAnd Splatter your BloodUpon the Altar of BesWe Erect one hundred PyramidsWith your Severed HeadsAshu Sehu Neferui Skhenn[This song was inspired by a battle from a book caled River God by Wilbur Smith. The story takes place in the latter half of the 14th Dynasty, and is about a struggle to restore the majesty of the Pharaoh of Pharaohs. Tanus, leader of the mighties army of Egypt, the Blue Crocodile Regiment, hunted down and destroyed the Shrikes, a horrid nomadic tribe of thieves, rapists, and murderers that played the Egyptians. The title of the song, "Wind of Horus," refers to the name of the boat of the Blue Crocodile Regiment. It is an enchantment of the god Horus to cause the wind to blow the Egyptians' sails in time of need. The repeated chant in the song is to invoke the god Ashu, who robs the enemies of the Egyptians of their virtues, weakening and destroying them. The word Lanata is mentioned in the song. Lanata was a bow made for Tanus by Taita the slave and was made of wood, ebony, rhinocerus horn, and ivory tusks. The bowstring was made out of the guts of a lion that Tanus had killed with his bronze-bladed war spear. Tanus was probably the only one in his army strong enough to use the Lanata bow. It had so much tension that he had to use a different technique just to pull the bowsting back. Tanus practised until he could shoot three arrows at a time piercing the heaviest of armor.]
