Swords gleam in the sunlight
What a beautiful view
From this majestic mountain
I can see the horizons hue

Cherry blossoms in the wind
Cool breeze across my face

What is this glow
Bright and sickly light
I’m being summoned
Someone wants me to fight

My swords shine in the light of the fire
I gaze into the eyes of my enemy
It may be some sort of ultima weapon
Brought to this world magically

No matter who has summoned me
I am bound to do their bidding
My destiny is to join in combat
My only thought is winning
Excalibur is in my hand
Kings power to command
Feel my power: Zantetsuken

Parry and riposte
Dodge and fleche’
While my hapless summoner
Steps out of the fray

My martial maneuvers
Are matched with even pace
Now I must win this battle
Or fall in disgrace

Torn away from my mountain home
Thrown into combat against my will
What mad god did I offend
To be cursed to randomly test my skills

For many years these battles waged
Were my greatest source of pride
But lately I’ve been wondering
How many times I’ve died
Is there a corpse of me strewn
On some hallowed mountainside
But my musing is cut short
As our swords again collide

*spoken* Hahaha… You withstood that! Now it's time to fight like MEN! And LADIES! And LADIES who dress like MEN! For Gilgamesh It's Morphin' Time!

It seems I’ve met my match
I feel my senses fading
A familiar glow surrounds my form
And I feel myself transcending

I know this mountain view
Of my absence, there is no clue
As if this was all some sort of fleeting dream
