Shout and hold your banners high!
The drumbeat guides us step by step
Warriors raise voices of song
And the heavens will quake as we march forth
Righteously wrapped in absolution
Absolved of any of our sins of war
Truly we are the glorious few!
And belt now our anthem
To besieged strongholds
We never stopped to question
Never truly learned the words
And our anthem rings across mountains
Echoes through deep valleys
Of a long-forgotten cause
I love passion and expression and standing for what is just and right.  It is one of my greatest woes that I meet so many people inflamed and impassioned to political, religious, or polarizing beliefs with so little understanding of what they stand for.  Stand tall for a cause, but please make sure that you understand what you are fighting for and understand the stakes of defeat and more importantly, victory.
