Title: Song of the Resistance
Post by: Misia on June 28, 2018, 06:40:45 am
Tasi and I just received a letter from Miri.

Miri, who was traveling this moon, has heard the rumors the Holy Council and the Templars are spreading about us. She knows the truth (or enough of it) to not believe them. She wrote, and is spreading, this song around Concordance.

I propose we adopt it as an anthem of sorts.

Oh Layla, You can bet Miri will get a big hug from me. I'm worried about something happening to her while she is away from us. I hope she has found a safe place to hide.

We're worried about her too Misia. Bujbuj is a big fan of her singing. But she is smart and clever. She will be okay.

For once, I have no words...

It's too perfect for words.

I was wrong before. Turns out I have words after all.

It is late, and I am tired, but the music will not leave me until I at least try to commit it to paper.

Though nightmares are horrors that come in the night,
Worse still are betrayers who hide in the light
We’ll burn through their tricks and their righteous disguise
Till all that is left is the ash of their lies

In slumber and waking we’ll seek and we’ll find
Untang'ling the truths and the lies, intertwined
We'll seek out their secrets, and one day we’ll know
The crimes they committed eight cent’ries ago

Hrm. Work in progress. Needs a little polish...

Though all fear the horrors that rise from the night
Worse still are betrayers who hide in the light
We’ll burn through their tricks and their righteous disguise
Till all that is left is the ash of their lies

In slumber and waking we’ll seek and we’ll find
Untang'ling the truths and the lies, intertwined
We’ll seek out their secrets and one day we’ll know
The crimes they committed eight cent’ries ago

Though some curse the shadow and some curse the flame
The balance between them is what we must blame
We’re cursed by both sides, by the war that they fought
we’re lashed to the stake that their ignorance wrought

So rise up concordance and come take my hand
My sisters, my siblings, together we stand
Though we will face powers beyond mortal ken
We’ve faced them before and we’ll face them again.

Here's all the verses I have so far, including Miri's originals.

Some of them are still pretty rough.

Oh wake up concordance its time to arise
Shake off your slumber and open your eyes
The darkness is falling you must take a stand
Lest nightmare descend again o’er the land

We came to the north at the council’s behest
To reclaim the shrine and restore our sweet rest
But nothing we found here is quite as it seems
Truth lost in the twilight twixt daylight and dreams

They’ll tell you we’re traitors and heretics too
But you may be wondering what did we do?
What law of the gods have we exiles defied
Our crime is in seeking the truth they would hide

So rise up concordance the nightmare is here
Those you have trusted are those you should fear
If you seek the truth that they hide with their schemes
Come join us at vespers twixt daylight and dreams

Though all fear the horrors that rise from the night
Worse still are betrayers who hide in the light
We’ll burn through their tricks and their righteous disguise
Till all that is left is the ash of their lies

In slumber and waking we’ll seek and we’ll find
Untang'ling the truths and the lies, intertwined
We’ll seek out their secrets and one day we’ll know
The crimes they committed eight cent’ries ago

Though some curse the shadow and some curse the flame
The balance between them is what we must blame
We’re cursed by both sides, by the war that they fought
we’re lashed to the stake that their ignorance wrought

I swear by the moon and I swear by the stars
We’ll take what we’re owed and we’ll find what is ours
So rise up my Zoku and cast off your shame
You've found your way home, now your birthright reclaim

So wake up concordance and join my song
We’re fighting in shadows, we’re righting what’s wrong
Though now we are hated and cursed to the fell
Their grandchildren surely will speak of us well

I warn you concordance, the stakes are quite high
Far greater than whether we live or we die
Success means we rescue a goddess entombed
and failure means watching our world be consumed

Their lullaby song has a nation entranced
While nightmares have slowly but surely advanced
When sisters are cloven, when ancient chains break
The land of concordance will finally wake

So rise up concordance and come take my hand
My sisters, my siblings, together we stand
Though we will face powers beyond mortal ken
We’ve faced them before and we’ll face them again.
