- Day of Jubilee released 2010 by Star Rose Arts
Look up, Lady Samurai, a
A nd raise the wooden boken high
Rise to conflict’s magic dance a
A nd give your captive soul a chance.
Look up Lady Samurai,
Walk straight ahead and don’t you cry
Freedom in the comfort zone
Is freedom for the slave alone.
Look up, Lady Samurai
And lay your weary labels by
They’re both a shield and a cage,
The words, the story and the page
Why take their false security
And sacrifice your dignity?
Look up Lady Samurai
And meet your would-be partner’s eye
Be he judge or foe or friend,
Accept the gift, rejoice, and blend.
Look up, Lady Samurai,
Walk straight ahead and don’t you cry.
Sing the sword-wrought harmonies
And in the warrior’s way find peace.
