Hilary Bader’s Lyrics
Hear! Sons of Kahless.
Hear! Daughters too.
The blood of battle washes clean.
The warrior brave and true.
We fight, we love, and then we kill.
Our lives burn short and bright.
Then we die with honor and join our fathers
in the Black Fleet where we battle forever,
battling on through the Eternal fight.
Hear, sons of Kahless!
The battle’s blood perfectly cleans
the warrior who is brave and loyal.
We fight, we are passionate, and we kill perfectly.
Our lives are not long, but they are very bright.
We will certainly die with honor, and we will join our fathers in
the black fleet. There we will continue to fight.
We will not stop. We will continue to fight. We will compete.
