Two wounded soldiers traveling across the plains
One was a blacksmith molding metal for weaponry
The other was an author writing novels for a girl he called Queen

They cracked down on the mouth breathers hiding the truth
They set out on a journey with destiny
Holding fast on each others company
They looked out for a town with a peaceful valley

They wore different colors but didn’t stop them from bonding
The blacksmith saved the author from being attacked by a pack of wolves
Two months of travel their restless hearts grew weary

The one told the other, “I wonder is this how it will always be?”
The other he said laughing, “You ain’t cashing in on me!”
Man is like wire they bend alone but together won’t break
The wounded soldiers caught up with the cavalry
