lyrics

[Verse 1]
I strive for serenity, provide for my kin in need
Try to throw aside all the emnity, remember me
As a man of honor with a code of valor and virtue
Loyal but trust I have good reason if I desert you
When we part, there are no words due
All roads must cross or fork
I appreciate the shared stage of the journey, but in the end
Alone I walk, until my soles are worn out
On this road to perdition as perceived by those who don't listen
And those that took heed know the difference
Between a slow progress and failure
I ponder what lies yonder, when karma took effect on my persona
And the toll I could exact justly, pay dues and receive them
What limitations must I exceed then?
Ambition pains as blood diseases, depressed
I often wondered if death was the only way to peace and freedom


[Chorus 1]
Celebrate life, do not mourn death
It's part of the game, to not be a part of the game
It's easy to follow suit, much harder to reign
Or to walk on your own to the Farplane

[Chorus 2]
Celebrate life, do not mourn death
Advice attained, through a life of pain
I meditate daily, isolated from the strife and strain
Eyes closed to prepare for my final day


[Verse 2]
Our voyage is one of coping with defeat, laughing in the face
Of the odds, stacked against us, tasting victory gloatingly
Despair is when hope leaves it seed in enemy soil
But when disaster's averted, it was worth the toil
Your plan's to fail, if you fail at planning
I fell down hard, but afterwards soared high, like Galilean cannons
I look through jaded lenses but remain adventurous
Enough to muster the required strength to take the distance and
Then explore whether our fate is friendship or battle
This warrior poet likes to state Invictus
Stare beyond the mask and see I cater to thinkers
Strength, a taunt and charisma are hook, bait and the sinker
I heard history was written by the victor
Took his story with a grain of salt and picked up the quill
To have a dead track for the train of thought, get aboard
And make sure it gets abroad as I walk to the Farplane...


[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2]
