We Will Not be Put Down

We Will Not Be Put Down
by Charles “Chaz the Savior” Barley

In times of trial, Gardishmen prove true!
Be they farmer, miner, or tradesman,
When a challenge is put down,
They come from all around!
To show the empire will always pull through!

And the Gardish will unite as one!
We will fight with every ounce of strength!
From Lestecha to Maxow,
We will not be put down!
We will fight on till the fight is done!

From the deft journeymen of Rushtide,
To the skilled craftsmen of Casogard,
When the army needs its gear
These workers make it clear
That the Gardish make their goods with pride!

And the Gardish will unite as one!
We will fight with every ounce of strength!
From Lestecha to Maxow,
We will not be put down!
We forge on, as steady as the sun!

Gardishmen put evil in its place!
They bring wrath on villains near and far!
Be they clerics of Vaunoo,
Or teachers from Wick too!
Gard will combat wickedness with grace!

(refrain, till the fight is done)

And the woodsmen of Caydriyal know
That no enemy can conquer Gard!
When it’s time to fight,
Gard will show her might!
And she’ll shatter the threat of any foe!

(refrain, steady as the sun)

Every farmer of Eustacian fields
Bears the strength to fight for the empire!
For the Gardishmen have heart
And know a humble start
Is the first step to glorious yields!

(refrain, till the fight is done)

The skirmishers of the Granite Mountains
Fighting in Lestecha and Claysaw
Have the pride to plant the flag
Of Gard on every crag!
As the empire celebrates their wins!

(refrain, steady as the sun)

Pecsmuth holds no strangers to hard toil!
Guildings or cadets at Brassica
Pledge that when there is a dare
To Gard they will be there!
And with their grit, all threats they will foil!

(refrain, till the fight is done)

And in Chester all know that the knights
Will uphold their hist’ry of esteem.
But none should doubt the serf
When a threat to Gardish turf
Rears its head and a lowborn sways the fight!

(refrain, steady as the sun)

Many immigrants came to Maxow
And they learned that Gardish ways are best!
They will fight with every hand
To defend our land!
For the empire is their homeland now!

(refrain, till the fight is done)

Gideon City’s history is proud!
It boasts the seat of good Emperor Romm!
When the gauntlet has been thrown,
Gideoners have shown
That their nation will remain unbowed!

(refrain, steady as the sun)

Citizens of all forty-six realms
Come together to destroy Gard’s foes!
Though their lives may be diverse
No man would be averse
When it comes time to don their swords and helms!

And the Gardish will unite as one!
We will fight with every ounce of strength!
From Lestecha to Maxow,
We will not be put down!
We will fight on, we will fight on, for our empire will submit to none!

We Will Not be Put Down
