The beasts walk down the path
Seemingly unwavered, unopposed
All those who attempt to stand in their path crumble to the ground
But hark! Hear the heroes come forth
They stand their ground, leaving their fear behind
How they know that must fight or take flight
The beast draws near, leaving a shadowy trail in its wake
The heroes prepare, oh! how there is tension in the air
How many have fallen, how few do remain
The night comes and goes, and the struggle goes on
How the fatigue from battle begins to set in
But that will not deter those that carry on the fight
For they know that evil shall not win
The light of day shines bright, and the heroes make their stand
The beast continue to hack and slash but to no avail
They are no match for those who answer the call
But lo! There are more beasts coming nigh
Is it the end for the heroes?
Has their last stand been for naught?
But lo! The trumpets play loudly, and in the distance can be seen
More heroes heroically charging to the scene
They have heard the cries, they have felt the emotion
And now they too come to make their stand
The beasts fight hard
The heroes even harder
The battle wages on with no end in sight
Many will rise, many will fall
And with hope and strength the heroes will be able
To outlast it all
