A Welcome invigoration!
A Waking dawn, with marching strides. Triumphant steps, advancing pride, with smoldering anger.
A Hero, once ideal, wrapped 'round temptress' finger, saw her lies.
A Hero, now shining tarnished, marches free, her worded shackles cast off.
A Hero, disgusted with hidden evils, casts off his naivety see's in not Black nor white, Now all is Grey.
A Warrior, Hero no more, marches Free, shackles shattered, and Ire burning.
A Warrior, ideals bent and battered, stands tall and free, speaking unbound will.
A Warrior, brought low, trudges on, does things right, gets things done, as dour Shades turn to pale hues. All is Grey.
~ Another great song, sucks I was late in getting to it, but I can safely agree in that it was well worth the wait. Before the first minute is up I was already flowing in the music and my core was marching in tune with this world weary Hero in my mind and heart. Seeking That ideal of glory and Good he once believed in, experience has left him battered, weary, tired, and doubtful, but still he marches on, doing what is right, because it is right. Hoping, against his better judgment, to find that ideal personified in some great act or person some day.
The only Musical notation I can really state a personal dislike on, was simply length. I honestly would have enjoyed this song being longer, but That's just personal taste, not a critique. XD Keep up your excellent tunes my friend!~
