Hunker down, for tomorrow night,
a peaceful sleep will be far from sight.
The rumbles deepen with the passing hours.
Outside one observes the trembling flowers.
Hunker down, for tomorrow's fight
will most likely last until the night.
The skies seem to know what tomorrow shall be.
Its peaceful sunset almost seems to bleed.
Hunker down, your strength you will need.
The day will be long and then you will see,
Pain and death are like clouds in the sky.
Sometimes they linger, sometimes they fly.
Pull it together now, the fight has begun.
Try and wake up now, no time for fun.
Early morning plaugued by struggle
Many a task today will be juggled.
Pull it together now, it's not over yet
still haunting the day is one evil threat
that failure to struggle and you will not surive
that tonight no longer shall you be alive.
Pull it together now, and look at the sun
when it sets and the day is done,
rest and drink will know you before long
you and your friends will break into song.
Rest easy now, your crucible is complete.
it seems that death is something you cheat
your strength and wisdom walk hand in hand
with all your luck which sustains you in this land.
Rest easy now, and try to sleep.
Slip into dreams somber and deep.
Wake up to find that at least one more day
has kept you alive and wishes to say
Rest easy now, your trial is done
no longer now must you run
You can slow down, but you can be sure
tonight may be easy, tomorrow there's more.
