Has anyone seen loyalty

You can Rest assured 
your life is insured

Loyalty Is a lost and forgotten art
Wisdom to pass your children straight from the start.
A value to be instilled,even before they can speak
An attribute gods and kings alike seek. 

cowards prepare for war,take the only gun and hand you a stick
There so petrified they'll make you physically sick

If there was only one left,they'll take the bulletproof vest!
Ask you to strap the back,and tell you that your the best!

Let you put your life on the line
Then giggle to themselves,"it's his life or mine."

The whole time they think they got you fooled 

When a loyal man feels used,The kings position gets overruled 

A loyal soldier would track down your enemy's
take there lives for you,with no remorse or guilt
Add honer to your worst tendencies
Loyalty above all is the foundation,great dynasty's are built
Even if it meant walking through the fires of hell
No secret to small,Never tell!
Cause loyal soldiers keep there mouths sealed 
protect your interest, and keep your motives concealed 

Many loyal men are taken for granted
When an order is given they know what to do
They raised there hands first and answer,

"Ill give my life for you!"

In there eyes you can do no wrong
No matter what's your objective 
What your motives are,are not there concern
Right or wrong there always protective

The loyal weir a badge of courage on there chest
And there hearts on there sleeve
There the ones screaming!"Fuck The Rest!"
When your body is lifeless,and your spirit decided to leave

Whatever you compliment about them means a lot
Cause To most of them you and loyalty is all that they got

What a great feeling it is to wake up
Knowing that Loyalty was instilled in my characters make up.

You can tell someone who practices this way of life
Someone who you would make your husband or wife
Someone who will give you everything left in there pot
Even if they are hungry and that's all that they got. 

I guess,The lesson I'm trying to preach 
Is if someone's loyal keep them in arms reach
Loyalty is a rare,and valuable commodity
Our breed is dying,Respect us our blood line is royalty!!
