  • Ananke, the goddess of inevitability, compulsion, and necessity is depicted as a winged goddess holding a torch.

    I got my disorders
    straight from the top
    my mission is clear
    my mission is sacred
    when it all falls apart
    and it will, it will
    I take up position
    on the front line
    from a foxhole
    I dig in and
    ready myself
    for a fight

    you can believe what you want
    maybe you don't hear it
    the bugle call at dawn
    all is well in your world
    but not so with me, I know
    the sound of gunfire
    the smell of powder
    the ever-present danger
    the cries of the innocent

    when it all falls apart
    and it will, it will
    I put it back together
    one piece at a time
    years of training taught me
    clarity comes from chaos
    we all become stronger
    for having been broken
