Which Will Win, Fire or Ice?
Which will win, fire or ice?
Of each of these you will have to pay the price.
One as cold as ice, one as hot as fire,
Which of these will turn on the other?
It is a battle that has been repeatedly fought,
but no one has wanted to trade for the cost.
If it happens when someday comes,
and the winner shouts their claim,
That everyone will be able to hear their name.
Dancing together in the battle of ice and fire,
Though only few are willing to shed their armor.
This is the tale that comes with no name,
for that is the price one has to pay.
