A Lesson Long Passed

There was a time when silence was golden
And learning the art of war was precious to me
But that time has passed
And that lesson long taught

Where I am there's never silence
And rarely a teacher
Only copious dispair
And a torpid prediction of the future

A lost cause is what most of them call it
But for that
I ask them
Why not find what is lost

Rise up with me once more
Fight the good fight
Fight for her

I see these men
The glare in their eyes
The warmth in their hearts

And I know inside
That their fire can burn out any other
Their torch will stay lit forever

For though they know it not
I have seen the future
And it is bright

A future lit by their accomplishments
Their struggles and failures
And most importantly; their hope

For hope is what the Covenant lack
They know not of defeat or despair
And for that, they shall not know victory.
