The Way of The Warrior

from Song Trek by Adam Sakellarides

lyrics

I was born a wolf
but raised humans and rescued
You will laugh at me
because I like to drink my juice

You accuse me
of taking honor for a laugh
but I can’t take away
what you do not have

The way of the warrior
To be an honored son
The way of the warrior
Is not an easy one
Hear my battle cry
’Tis a good day to die
To do a deed worthy of being sung

She may be impressed
how I handle my sword so wise
You must think me a fool
to make such transparent lies

Plans that you have made
are ill-begotten and conceived
But I recognize
the same brashness lies within me

The way of the warrior
To be an honored son
The way of the warrior
Is not an easy one
Hear my battle cry:
’Tis a good day to die
To do a deed worthy of being sung

You ask my favor
This foolish errand I won't help
’Tis not what I owe them
It is what I owe myself

Though I have no mate
My son is far, safe and sound
The way to rid the pain
Suiting up to stand your ground

The way of the warrior
To be an honored son
The way of the warrior
Is not an easy one
Hear my battle cry:
’Tis a good day to die
To do a deed worthy of being sung
