    Hi, this is just a quick post. I created this Ballad to go along with the writing contest we had a while ago now, I never ended up posting it because I didn't have enough words to do so! It was going to be ment as kind of an introduction to the story, even though the actual story takes place before the Ballad itself.

    (begin chorus)​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    We-e-e travelled down​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    Climb on out​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    Darkness is coming, the way is lost​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out, out, out​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out​
    (end chorus)​

    Me and Harky, Av, and Savi​
    Were headed down into the ground​
    Weapons, Spells, Bows n Arrows rattlin’ around​
    We pulled the Triple to the ready​
    Fired it towards the shadows​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out, out, out​

    (begin chorus)​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    We-e-e travelled down​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    Climb on out​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    Darkness is coming, the way is lost​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out, out, out​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out​
    (end chorus)​

    Quick to the flank he ran alone​
    The shadows dark, the wind did blow​
    As he dealt his undead foe a mortal stroke​
    From the shadows he got wounded​
    Shortly after he was grounded​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out​

    (begin chorus)​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    We-e-e travelled down​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    Climb on out​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    Darkness is coming, the way is lost​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out, out, out​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out​
    (end chorus)​

    Hours and hours walkin' the dark​
    We grabbed our friend had to head back​
    Me and Savi we started climbin'​
    Lost breathing a dank dead smell, we'll need some air​
    Seemed forever 'til the sun was shinin'​
    But by then our hero wasn't drawing breath​

    (begin chorus)​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    We-e-e travelled down​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    Climb on out​
    Darkness is coming, the way is lost​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out, out, out​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out​
    (end chorus)​

    Alas now we've lost our good friend​
    To dark we'll put an end​
    Everybody grab your virtue​
    Cause the Ether's gonna blow​
    Tell the darkness when we see it​
    It'll be the next to go​
    Yeah, we're goin' to the darkness​
    And then we'll lay 'em low​

    (begin chorus)​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    We-e-e travelled down​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    Climb on out​
    Whoa-oh hey-o​
    Darkness is coming, the way is lost​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out, out, out​
    Stray arrows screamin’ on out​
    (end chorus)​
