No more excuses!
Gone are the days of apathy
Enough of pretensions in the mud.

No more excuses!
The plea of the youth,
The blatant whisper of the unborn,
The beckoning of the mute,
The cry of women black and blue.

No more excuses!
The waves roar in fury,
The eagle swoops down in anguish.
The war cry reverberates in the depths of our soul,
Listen! It summons us! Listen!

No more excuses!
For the oppressed bleeds out hope
Yet the veracity bears precious gold.
Arise to the color of our heart;
to the flame of our FURY.
          Yes, fury…

Crimson.
Battle.
Bloodshed.
We are ready.
