Fight The Good Fight
Pagans came to subjugate us with fables from there story books
Corrupt the mind of the innocent ones
Enslaved and took us to foreign lands
They took most of us abroad
They dropped some of us a yard
They said they saved us from a mundane life
Righteous people have to fight the good fight
So be though as it may
