The Bargain

Post by John T Mainer on Sun Sep 16, 2012 12:45 am

Man child raised on the tales
Honour and glory,
Serving the people

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Poor child, blood will wash clear your belief
Pain will open the eyes that death closes
Screams will sing you to sleep

Head high, oath-sworn
Behind the banners
For hearth and home to march

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Poor child, blood will wash clear your belief
Pain will open the eyes that death closes
Screams will sing you to sleep

Hard man, steel in his fist
Fire and madness rule;
Just hold through the night

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Poor child, blood will wash clear your belief
Pain will open the eyes that death closes
Screams will sing you to sleep

Cold man, free of illusions he stands
Banners forgotten
Wolf smile and raven’s laugh

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Poor child, blood will wash clear your belief
Pain will open the eyes that death closes
Screams will sing you to sleep

Friends lost, family estranged
Stranger unwelcome
In the hearth he defended

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Poor child, blood will wash clear your belief
Pain will open the eyes that death closes
Screams will sing you to sleep

Old man smiles softly
Children playing fearless
Strangers to the horrors he knows

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Poor child, blood will wash clear your belief
Pain will open the eyes that death closes
Screams will sing you to sleep

Far away we fought
For the laughter of children
To ring in the hall

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Play child; blood we shed keeps you safe
Your laughter will balance
The screams that sing us to sleep
