Stand Your Ground

Will you come now and stand your ground A place to rest your heart and soul There is no better stand around Hope found, resting might take its toll Don’t fight for what you don’t believe Will you come now and stand your ground But don’t practice art to deceive Let the craft rot, higher souls bound Believe we can learn from the sound Who make their mark with mighty words Will you come now and stand your ground Sound words are craftier than swords Though to make such a stand as this You might have to grind in and pound Unless aimed true, words tend to miss Will you come now and stand your ground
