Call to arms the hands of the tired. Train the souls that have wept to fight. Light their inner fire—rekindle it to glorious might.

Teach the ones with bleeding hearts how to cauterize their wounds. Guide the weak and weary and show them how to build spines of steel.

Call us to arms tonight. You see the errors of their ways, right? It is time to prepare for battle. This world is no longer worth living in unless we fight for the one we want. If we must, to Death’s door we will march, but never shall our efforts be in vain. Do not fall. Now is the time to take a stand. Do you hear the music of our hearts— the beating of the drums, the screams of the trumpets? Let us charge into battle with our heads held high. The sky is on fire in blazing plight. We cannot afford to lose this fight. Even if our hymn remains unsung, we will walk the winding roads until the end.
