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.
