Skyking is called
Code authenticated
Positions held and activated
"Can-do" attitude

Look up to the sky
See the shining gods?
They will answer all our prayers
All within their time

Don't put your trust in them
They will all forsake you soon
Exploding in midair
To devastate your world!

Tigers let loose
Gear up the steel birds
Load the warheads
Kick the tires and light the fires

Look up to the sky
The shining gods come near
The closer that they come
More questions in fear

Don't put your trust in them
They will all forsake you soon
Run to safety, run to shelter
Mors Ab Alto!

Fighters fangs out
Sights padlocked
Target management

Pillars of fire
Clouds of destruction
Targets hit
Death from above

They fell down from the sky
Angry gods that they were
Our offers did not appease them
Please forgive us, great gods of death

Targets within limits
Civilian casualties
The enemy is paralyzed
By our great gods of death!

Bomb damage assessment
Casualties galore
Mission accomplished
Whiskey Charlie!

When the war was over
Many lives were lost
People fear "Mors Ab Alto"
And what it costs
The shining gods will rain on you
And not discriminate
Nor will they change their minds
To negotiate!

Mors Ab Alto

Trocaria is the alter ego of multi-instrumentalist, Joan (Palmer) Brown. Trocaria is her therapy. It is her bottled up anger, waiting for the cork to pop off. Combine the elements of real-life and wild imagination--and that is the heart of Trocaria. ... more
