ASSEMBLING

We will not be spoken for or charmed
We won't be taken
We will not be bullied, We won't flinch
You are mistaken
If when you look at Us
You see a path you can control
You'll never see Us coming
'Cause you can't perceive the whole

We won't be placated
Or convinced We might be wrong
We won't be distracted
We're not here to play along
If when you look at Us
There's not a part of you deep down
That's terrified of what's to come
And shaking on the ground
Then you're not looking closely
At the colour of Our eyes
'Cause when the Furies come for you
We'll blacken out the skies

There's a Sisterhood assembling
Without pity, without need
We're not asking for permission
We're not subject to your seed
And there's not a one among Us
Who will bow Her head in shame
There is nothing you can take from Us
That We will not reclaim

We are righteous retribution
The eternal balance sheet
Immortal in Our purpose
Sovereign in Our seat
Speak of Us but kindly
Do not draw Our ire
We the winged Sisterhood
Of dark, chthonic fire
Run, but it is futile
Beg for all it's worth
But We suspect the truth for you
Is more akin to curse

Fly, for We are faster
Listen, We are wise
But let's remember, Sisters
Why We blacken out the skies

There's a Sisterhood assembling
Without pity, without need
We're not asking for permission
We're not subject to your seed
And there's not a one among Us
Who will bow Her head in shame
There is nothing you can take from Us
That We will not reclaim
If you think that We are finished
When We're falling from the Tower

You've forgotten We've got wings
You've forgotten We've got power
And the Sisterhood is watching
Every minute, every hour
You've forgotten many things

We are righteous retribution
The eternal balance sheet
There's a Sisterhood assembling
That there's no way to defeat
And our deliberations are complete
