Words and melody by Claire Sheridan. A recording of the song can be found here.
Composed by Nicassia of Phoenix Reach following events in Autumn 381YE.
There is a place where hope will never die, The Onyx Path for us is open wide, Whatever we embrace, However dark our fate, At Zeno’s Rest all stand and stand with Pride.
Through the mud and through the mist the heroes came, Knowing they might never leave again, All was dark and mire, But in us there was fire, To reach that place and hold it just the same.
They fought with magic and with shield and sword, They fought with guile those pirates from abroad. With sharks they’ve made a pact, Sharp-toothéd Spring attacked, And countless they lay bleeding on the floor.
Six heroes of the Empire gave their lives, For refugees and armies to survive, All bloody, broke and torn, What’s left for those who mourn? At Zeno’s Rest all stand and stand with Pride.
