Here we stand or here we fall
Vipers, scimitars, a blazing whirligig
of weapons fire and darting twisting shapes
History won't care at all
If they win, there wont be no history
Make the bed, light the light
We are whats left of the light, of the
glory of the Colonies
Lady Mercy won't be home tonight.
An explosion, a second, one raider but
one Viper, one of his people too, not good.
You don't waste no time at all
Again? Frak it, why every 33 Minutes?
He needed sleep, his pilots needed sleep.
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
Once more into the breech… weren’t
the sirens that woke me this time though, it was the sheer inevitability of
it. 33 Minutes, even my body knows it now.
It comes to you as to us all
Frak, but that was close. Think I
picked up a few new holes in the tail plane; hope Tyrol and his crew will be
able to fix that in time.
We're just waiting
We cant go on like this forever,
we’re tired, need sleep, need rest.
For the hammer to fall
All it needs is one mistake, just one
and the Hammer will fall.
Oh every night, and every day
More like every 33 minutes… frak it,
Lords, give us a break, please?
A little piece of you is falling away
Can’t think… too tired now, if I
try my mind hurts. It feels like molasses and jack-hammers in my head, all so
slow, yet oh so loud and painful.
But lift your face, the Western Way –
Couldn’t stop though, had to go on,
a people, a way of life to defend.
Build your muscles as your body decays.
