Win or lose, what's at stake is grace.

One pits oneself against one's wildest dreams,

Relying, more than anything, on will.

Life is far more lustful than it seems,

Demanding more of one than an embrace.

Come witness, then, the love that life redeems

Upon a field of lovers, dreamers all,

Playing with more passion in our place.
