“Oh, and I will get a book in game, with the lyrics of Partition of Virtuous Pretense!”

– Lord British

The path is yours.
The prophecy mine.
Your only ask is patience and time.
But truth be told our actions are blind and once they’re done there’s no more to hide.

How many years and how many lives?
Your counsel grasps hold your advice divides.
How many tears and how many sides?

No watchers, no spies, no riddles, no lies.
No watchers, no spies, no riddles, no lies.

Virtues and fate.
Protection and rules.
The Path to Truth corrupted by fools.
Many prefer the veil of the dead.
Many forget the path to their head.

How many years and how many lives?
Your advice subtracts from free thinking minds.
How many tears and how many sides?

No watchers, no spies, no riddles, no lies.
No watchers, no spies, no riddles, no lies.

Virtues and fate.
Free to advise.
The Path to Love is torn with surprise.
Many prefer the veil of the dead.
Many forget the hunger instead.
Many have lost what must not be said.
Many still want what can not be fed.

How many years and how many lives?
Your sacrifice bleeds additional times.
How many tears and how many sides?

No watchers, no spies, no riddles, no lies.
No watchers, no spies, no riddles, no lies.

Virtues and fate.
Honor supposed.
The Path of Courage (is paved with) forgotten heroes.
We make our own fates.
We tell our own lies.
No wires no cables, no unblinking eye.
No freedom-less will, no needs justified.

How many years and how many lives?
Your paths expand as if multiplied.
How many tears and how many sides?

No watchers, no spies, no riddles, no lies.
No watchers, no spies, no riddles, no lies.

“Played” in-game by Baron Drocis Fondorlatos

Here are the .abc files that can be used in-game to re-create the brilliant work of Richard Daskas and Kailef.

PVP .abc files

Richard Daskas has isolated each instrument (1 Guitar, 1 Flute, 2 Violins) allowing for a full band to play once more instruments are added to the game. There is also a “full” version of the song, which sounds pretty good on the piano.

Please feel free to use and share these files. I hope you enjoy them and perhaps take some time to use them as a way to tell the story of Rats Nest on your adventures!
