This one's much, much quieter than the other songs. I did that on purpose to give a kind of intimacy and imply close proximity of the characters, Eona and Lazir. Also, I wanted to make my life slightly easier. These first three songs legit made me really tired.
And the story continues.......
After "Blood Sacrifice", we know that Eona, despite her hesitations, captured Lazir as her blood sacrifice. With General Shando looming over her, and her ears still ringing with the vows she had taken to be part of the Warrior Class, she decided to kidnap Lazir anyway. Lazir is being kept in a kind of jail until sunrise, when the blood sacrifice is set to happen. Eona goes to see him and manages to get by someone standing guard. Her conversation with him reveals much more than previously expected, including details of how her father broke the religious sacrifice rules and went berserk, and, of course, the fabled Yellow Tribe.
EONA: Lazir, we don't have much time. You must tell me what you know!
LAZIR: I can't trust you! You let them take me!
EONA: I had to! General Shando was watching!
LAZIR: You're going to let them kill me! My secrets die with me.
EONA: Tell me. Tell me and I will free you.
LAZIR: Fine. But you better keep your promise.
Since I was a boy, I've known of a story
One of the Red Tribe who chose to seek glory
And into the desert, h looked for an offering
The whole Yellow Tribe, he was bent on conquering
But in all his bloodlust, he slaughtered all men
He wasn't supposed to, they couldn't defend
Themselves or their women, their children or friends
And he kept on going till there was an end
But then he found you
You were the last one
Your golden eyes struck something in him
And he saved you
He's raised you since you
Were just a baby
And he retired as a warrior as his penance
His name is Mayjiss
EONA: No, it can't be!
You must be mistaken
My father's no soldier
He's always been honest
When I'd gotten older,
He said that he found me
That I was abandoned
He saved me, went against
What he was commanded
I know he's a good man
How can I believe that he was a monster?
How could you deceive me to save your own skin?
Why would you tell lies about my own father?
LAZIR: But look at your eyes!
The golden color
Sands of the desert
You are the last remaining member of your people
Haven't you wondered why you're so different?
I swear to the Red God,
This is the truth I'm telling
And I am sorry....
EONA: I know. Thank you, Lazir, for telling me. Now, let's get you out of here.
