Sacrifices Claimed by Victory
Tear drops splatter on the ground like rain. There is nothing left for the universe to see, to show that we were ever here.
You said that you would show me the way, that you would protect my heart, but then you turned aside when I stumbled. Turned aside and left me to die. I didn't die, I survived to conquer the Republic that had meant more to you than me. I crushed your illusions, destroyed everything you loved. Anything to make you feel the pain you have put me through. A million miles and one lost soul later, you return for me.

Red blood wells from the cut and fills my senses, driving the pain from my soul.

The blood is dripping off my arm, soaking into the carpet
Carth isn't going to be happy when he comes home and sees this big red spot.
But I can't stop, maybe if I just keep going, they'll forgive me.
Maybe if I just keep going,
