the battle of marston moor (july 2nd, 1644) lyrics – electric light orchestra

my lord king,
you stoop to betray your own people,
and even in the eyes of god,
do you not relent?
i am therefore bound by no other course
i shall raise an army;
together we will march against you and your kind,
and every born man will fight to regain his own freedom,
and cleanse his wretched soul.
