The Battle of Endor

Luke:

Father… I know you’re there, watching from above
I feel your presence and your might
Because I chose the light.

I stand alone, in this forest of old
I’ve brought down many—is this to your delight?
Because I chose the light.

He’s coming straight for me
Wanting my blood, to wish me a goodnight
Because I chose the light.

A flash of green (though I know yours is red)
I may be young, but I am a knight
Because I chose the light.

Steadily I breathe, in and out.
Swinging with focus. I smite,
Because I chose the light.

I watch as he spins, repeatedly
Now it’s my time to wish him a goodnight
Because I chose the light.

Father… I know you’re there, watching from above
The path I follow—I know it to be right
Because I chose the light.

When we stand side by side
Will you help me fight?
Because you once too chose the light

Stormtrooper:

Now’s my chance, I’ve got you alone
I’ve got you in my sight
You and your silly green light.

Aboard my bike, I have the power of flight
Whilst you stand around in the mud
That will soon be covered in your red blood.

Do you think I’m afraid?
Cause, guess what—I’m not.
Not by a long shot.

Fire one! Fire two!
Why aren’t you dead yet?
Are you even breaking a sweat?

Twist the throttle, to give me a boost
Leaves fall and twigs break as I past
Sending you another blast.

I can see your eyes flicker
What are you thinking in that little head?
You won’t need it soon because you’ll be dead.

You swing your light sabre and though I feel no pain
I start to spin and turn
To my stomach’s surprise, as it begins to churn

A tree comes into view
I have no control, this is the end
Too late for amends.

I’m sorry my love, I won’t be coming home
Kiss the kids goodnight for me
Goodbye Empire, now I’m free.
