They gather, undaunted and bound by their conviction
Not knowing the outcome of the battle, they must fight

Each man holding the man next to them to survive.
They bow their heads in reverence towards their brother

Standing in line, in silence, the sound of metal and wood crash
As they have their last meal

They pray together
They cry together

They are brothers to the end, what will become of them is uncertain
They walk off the mountain into the unknown

And now healed, are the men of the mountain
