TBCSS: S03E02 – A Greater Purpose

agreaterheader

Sendor and Daltor are now face to face, the battle begins so cruel and ruthless that even the castle seems to suffer the evil influence of the Black Crystal Sword. Daltor, after fighting with Black Dragon, feels that his exhausted and wounded body won’t resist much longer to further fight; his only hope is to make the most of his wit and so he tries to focus, but a disturbing thought distracts him: he is a fierce and proud person, but he realizes now that this is the first time he has an actual responsibility towards all of the world, everything depends on him and he gets tense. Feeling uneasy, he starts thinking about his past behavior and realizes how shallow and vain he used to be, he was so full of himself that now he’s confused and no longer sure he’s actually able to make it.
“What if I’m not good enough? What if my vanity has deceived me making me feel stronger than I am?”
This scary thought gets more and more insistent and as its intensity grows so does the weight of his Silver Sword, to which the destiny of all the people of the world is tied.
But Daltor is very smart and he knows that there’s a way to take advantage even from a bad situation. This new awareness makes him feel like he’s finally a man, he embraces his growth and decides that those skills he developed doing the wrong thing for the wrong reasons, he will use now to fulfill his call, to finally achieve his purpose.

2.  A GREATER PURPOSE

[Storyteller]
Thick, dark voracious clouds
wolfing down the tops of the highest towers
bleed unforgiving gloom
that drips down carving stones like knives of terror

[Daltor]
I was always so narcissistic,
superficial and arrogant,
slaying dragons to satisfy
nothing but my vanity.
All the glory and adoration
made me feel like some kind of god,
I was sure that my valiant deeds
would go down in history.

Here on my shoulders I bear the weight
of so many faultless lives,
my sword’s so much heavier now
that I know they all depend on me.

Seeing things from this new perspective
all my past seems so trivial,
I was only a fatuous boy
living out his own deceit.
I am filled by this new awareness,
for my sins I will make amend,
I will cherish the wisdom born
from my strange epiphany.

Here on my shoulders I bear the weight
of so many faultless lives,
my sword’s so much heavier now
that I know they all depend on me.

[Storyteller]
He is face to face with Sendor,
with his cruelest enemy,
while he’s waging the battle
with the demons inside of him!

[Daltor]
Embrace my evolution,
‘cause I sense I was brought to this life
for a greater purpose.
Smack down the fiend!

[The group]
See the mortal dance
Left right left right up down up down
One hops forward one steps back
dodges blows bending to the side
Left right left right up down up down
One hops forward one steps back
Cold blades cut the air seeking flesh hungry for bones

[Daltor]
Though this day of grand disillusion
might as well be my very last
I am grateful for I received
the great gift of clarity
The result of my past behavior
wasn’t meaningless after all
If there’s something I’ve ever learned
is to spear cold-bloodedly

Here on my shoulders I bear the weight
of so many faultless lives,
my sword’s so much heavier now
that I know they all depend on me.

[Storyteller]
He is face to face with Sendor,
with his cruelest enemy,
while he’s waging the battle
with the demons inside of him!

[Daltor]
Embrace my evolution,
‘cause I sense I was brought to this life
for a greater purpose.

[Storyteller]
He is face to face with Sendor,
with his cruelest enemy,
while he’s waging the battle
with the demons inside of him!

[Daltor]
Embrace my evolution,
‘cause I sense I was brought to this life
for a greater purpose.
Smack down the fiend!
