Chapter 5, Fallen Warrior

from by The Bell and the Hammer

lyrics

I'm a reluctant soldier,
satisfied to pacify with tales of others' wars
The only weight I shoulder
for characters with weapons fighting off in fairy moors
I'm only bold in my assertions
I'm never bold in my behavior

I'm paralyzed by loiter,
when all we ever hear, it seems, are rumors of our war
We're sitting safe in service,
reciting tidings of who's felled by whatever evil sword

I'm only bold in my assertions
I'm never bold in my behavior,
and clever as I want to be,
I could do with being braver
Yeah, I could do with being braver

There's a longing to reconcile to rightness
There's a brazen sort of truth about this war
But there's hope in the Victor and an end,
simple and final that everyone is fighting for
Everyone but me, I'm a reluctant soldier
Everyone but me, I'm a reluctant soldier who could do with being braver
