Forsaking All Others

I fight for my lady, my captain, my king
I fight for my queen, my warlord, and brothers.
I fight for the honor of all I hold dear
For we war as one, forsaking all others
For we war as one, forsaking all others.

I have counted the days till we take the field.
Burned in the heat of each season’s bright sun
I have watched us grow lean o’er the miles we have traveled,
and we each shall grow leaner ‘ere we are done,
and we each shall grow leaner ‘ere we are done.

I fight for my lady, my captain, my king
I fight for my queen, my warlord, and brothers.
I fight for the honor of all I hold dear
For we war as one, forsaking all others
For we war as one, forsaking all others.

We have left our compassion and kindness behind
Held in the hands of the ones we hold dear
But we have kept our fury, and our bloodlust for glory
And all we will see now are whites wide with fear,
Yes, all we will see now are whites wide with fear.

I fight for my lady, my captain, my king
I fight for my queen, my warlord, and brothers.
I fight for the honor of all I hold dear
For we war as one, forsaking all others
For we war as one, forsaking all others.

I have looked to my left and looked to my right –
Every man here is a one to behold.
I may not share your blood, but would shed my blood for you,
that loyalty better than any king’s gold,
that loyalty better than any king’s gold.

I fight for my lady, my captain, my king
I fight for my queen, my warlord, and brothers.
I fight for the honor of all I hold dear
For we war as one, forsaking all others
For we war as one, forsaking all others.

We were once strangers who gathered as brothers
To drink from this cup filled with violence and love.
We will take back this battle – it will not escape us,
and nothing will stop us on earth or above,
and nothing will stop us on earth or above.

I fight for my lady, my captain, my king
I fight for my queen, my warlord, and brothers.
I fight for the honor of all I hold dear
For we war as one, forsaking all others
For we war as one, forsaking all others.
