I like it, mostly because unlike Lost Not Forgotten and The Dark Eternal Night and songs like that this is actually about something important.

I don't think the lyrics are exactly great, but they've never stood out to me as bad.
Sincerely,

I don't go into a DT album expecting poet laureate type genius so I'm never disappointed by the lyrics. Unless they are totally awful I really don't care.

there are a couple of clumsy lines but nothing I would class as awful.

This thread makes me wonder why we have a DT sub-forum.

To answer the OP question.................NO.

and Blob is 100% correct.

Nah, it's not that cheesy. There are some DT songs with subpar lyrics post Six Degrees, but not EVERY SINGLE SONG.  :millahhhh

If the par is lyrics from like Awake or something, then yes every album post 6D is sup par lyrically. In fact I can't think of a single song after 6D who's lyrics are anything more than "okay" at best.

These walls is fantastic.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

If a song can speak to you through lyrics it's very good. That's one for me

Absolutely no. I think they are pretty good. Actually what's chessy and dumb about it?

Just, everything. Any song that starts talking about "the battle cry" or "the war to end all wars" is just cheesy to me. All that aside, it is a fantastic song. But that first verse just irks me.

I will never understand this.
