by Derek Hamilton
And even though it seems to be, a losing battle fought
One must remain, and keep at bay, each and every thought
For discord in is discord out, and we are all at fault
Plainly seen, and clearly heard, the constant self-assault
Although the cost is still so great, and we have paid our dues
Even when there is nothing left, there is still so much to lose
