Arson

They came riding at first light

Fifty men armed to the teeth

The sounding horn called us out to fight

We went to greet them with our steel

Outnumbered yet we fought

But soon we were overrun

We took refuge in our home

Our downfall had just begun

They attacked our home, we kept them out

Defending ourselves with spear and bow

We took them out one by one

As the rising autumn sun glowed

There was twenty dead on each side

When we first smelled something burn

We heard them laughing from outside

Taunting us with spiteful words

They set the house on fire

In order to smoke us out

Only five of us was still alive

And our time was running out

Raging flames surrounded us all

Our home was under siege

Crumbling roof and burning walls

There was no way to break free

As we were all about to die

We swore a sacred oath

Revenge would be claimed if someone survived

And we sealed the oath in blood

The roof caved in and cleared a path

A way out of the flames

It was decided that I'd go first

As we made for our escape

Suddenly the walls came down

And trapped the rest inside

My closest friends died that day

Only I made it out alive
