Track Name: Hero's Lullaby
my dear mother died when I was just a boy
I held her in anger as she left me a stranger
a bastard without gain employ
I hid in the basement of the house I was raised in
and there I probably would have died
to join her in the graveyard a coward forever
but a voice came to me in the night
and oh just to hear it replenished my spirit

it said I am here my son
with you I am always
do not fear my son
for you were loved
before you were made

a tap on my shoulder alone in the dark
and I turn to see the line that formed me
somewhere my ancestors are alive in their hearts
and they smile at me with their ghost white teeth
they tell me I'm doing alright
that the world may be cruel to me
but it wont find a fool in me
I tell them I'm afraid to fight
they laugh at my fear
and whisper in my ear

inform your foes to run
what weapon have they
against the already slain
there's rust for swords and guns
but you will not fall
to bullet or blade

for I am here my son
with you I am always
do not fear my son
for you were loved
before you were made
