I'm a long time fan of Hagaren, and definitely of Mustang, but I never really had a reason to post to any coms.  I have ZERO talent when it comes to writing, and I'm decent at making icons, but the only one I've made of our Taisa is the one in my user pic (btw, gank it if you'd like. ^_^)

But I was listening to my soundtrack for Frank Wildhorn's The Civil War (Its a musical, people) and one of the songs really struck me as sounding like it could have come from Roy.  Its called Judgement Day, and I believe its meant to be from Lincoln's point of view, but thinking about it in terms of Roy makes it that much cooler. ^_^;;; 

JUDGEMENT DAY
And sometimes it's too much to bear
The dead and dying everywhere
And every day for me is judgement day
Every day for me is judgement day
I sit among my charts and maps
And hear the lonely call of taps
Like the wind across the moon
I pray to God that I am right
And then I send boys off to fight
And travel home in boxes far too soon
May God have mercy on my soul
For all the years that I have stolen
From the men who follow what I say
And may their families all forgive
The orders I so calmly give them
As I march their sons into harm's way
And out there on the killing floor
I hear the bloody sounds of war
And watch a thousand more souls slip away
And sometimes it's too much to bear
The dead and dying everywhere
And every day for me is judgement day
Every day for me is judgement day
I write to mothers of their sons
And say they were the bravest ones
And then I pour a drink and sleep
But sleep is only filled with drums
A slice of death till morning comes
The heart of darkness where my soul can weep
Come walk a mile in bloody shoes
And lose the men that I am losing
Watch them pay the piper for my tune
Come walk among their ghosts with me
And look through eyes too used to seeing
Faces who have joined the lost platoon
Come Judgment Day God only knows
If man will reap the pain he sows
And what will be the price he has to pay
But down here on the killing floor
Among the crimson rags of war
For me each day I live is Judgment day
Every day for me is Judgement Day
May God have mercy on my soul
For all the years that I have stolen
From the men who follow what I say
And may their families all forgive
The orders I so calmly give them
As I march their sons into harm's way
And out there on the killing floor
I hear the bloody sounds of war
And watch a thousand more souls slip away
And sometimes it's too much to bear
The dead and dying everywhere
And every day for me is Judgement Day
Every day for me is Judgement Day
Every day for me is Judgement Day

I think I'm going to have to do a series of icons with these lyrics, what do you guys think?  Also, if anyone would like, I can put up an mp3 of the song on Sendspace, and post a link here, if anyone wants to hear it (Its actually quite upbeat, but still pretty, if that makes any sense...).  Mostly I just want comments, because I'm a whore like that, and I want to see if this song "hits" any Mustang fans in the same way it did me. ^_^
