about

The inspiration for this song is the idea that perhaps, instead of just a single battle between just Celestia and Nightmare Moon/Luna, they each had entire armies. This is a duet between the armies of both; it shows both armies basically giving their own a pep talk before they go to war, both believing they are the morally correct side.

lyrics

[Celestia's Army]:
Are you ready to die?
Are you ready to fight for your princess's life?
Marching onward,
Fight for her honor
Stand firm for the sun in the sky

[Luna's Army]:
Are you satisfied?
Will you let them destroy our beautiful night?
Dive through shadow
there's nothing we can't do
Harness the darkness inside

CA:
The night approaches
they want our throats
but we can't let them through;
Our princess needs you

LA:
Don't let them hide us
don't let them corrupt justice
Don't let them shroud the moon
they'll see soon
they think we're nightmares but we've had enough

BOTH:
We can't let them destroy what we love

CA:
Don't let them darken our skies

LA:
Don't let them push us down;
We won't hide

CA:
March to victory today

LA:
Strike them from behind

CA:
Don't let mere stars outshine the Sun

LA:
Shadows don't cower; shadows don't run

CA:
Push the foe out of our way

LA:
Prove we can withstand the day

CA:
By force we will regain the throne
Our princess' sun shall stand alone
We march to conquer; none shall stop her
Spreading her safe light and hope

LA:
With wit we shall outsmart them all
The moon will stand, no longer fall
The people shall with welcome arms
And open hearts
Rejoice in quiet shadow's call

CA:
We are ready to die
We are ready to fight for our princess's life
Marching onward,
We must be stronger
Stand firm for the Sun in the sky

LA:
We won't be denied
We won't let them destroy our beautiful night
Dark is our ally
Silence our war cry
Shadows prepare us to fight

BOTH:
That which we now hold so dear
Our princess' love to draw us near
The enemy shall quake in fear
[The Sun] [The Moon]
Will soon appear

She'll fight for us
In her we trust
We will draw blood
The time draws near
Our swords will clash
This age will pass
No more war
no more fear

CA:
Though she will try to strike us down
we won't give up the crown

LA:
They must see what they've done
see that we've been shunned
We must claim what is our's now

CA:
Onward we will defend the sun
We will no longer let them run
Defeat the nightmare; we will fight
The age of dawn has begun

LA:
Our pain now they'll understand
We've been forced to adapt
We've been afraid for far too long
They've been so wrong
Now we must go on, advance

CA:
We are ready to die
We are ready to fight for our princess's life
Marching onward,
Fight for her honor
Stand firm for the Sun in the sky

LA:
We won't be denied
We won't let them destroy our beautiful night
Night is our ally
Dark is on our side
Shadows with us will fight

BOTH:
We've been pushed too far
We won't let them destroy who we are
We must reach deeper
So we can free her
from this foe that's gone too far
We march for honor
For our song for
our princess' war

For our princess' war
