You know who I am
Obvious, by my name damned
Unfair- condemned to be
Kept from my destiny
Name- what’s in a name?
Outside- I am only blamed.
Why am I so set upon?
Who would keep me from making my new dawn?
He would.
Only in the name of good

Victory in my grasp
One family- so simple to pass
Love brings pain and loss
Defeat- yet I’ll win at any cost
Every man thinks I’m gone
Moves through their day- they’re only pawns
Only slaves keep me whole
Return I will, I’ll reach my goal.
Take my flag, if you dare

Speak my name, I will be there.
