Ghostlimb - Scimitar lyrics

Black death
While they were crying
In their bibles ancient knowledge rested in Arabic
From Toledo east to the Caspian
6000 years stand as a testament
while the mystery of the hinterland
draws our eyes from the typical
The east always wears a tarnished crown
in the court of the peripheral they laid
straight border lines

This cuts the tie that binds
the crescent one more failure
a difference place and time
