The Siege of Fushimi Castle

Subject: Torii Mototada, Music: Joe Dean, Lyrics: Seventy Seven, Vocals: Seventy Seven and Megumi Yamauchi (thanks to Megumi Yamauchi and Matt Lyne)

There's 40,000 men at Fushimi Castle
Looking pretty hungry, this ain't a dinner date
Only one man who could lead the battle
Going out with dignity and grace.
That's the way of samurai
Not afraid to die
They'll never take him alive
A Bushido ego, the warriors flow
That’s the way of samurai
Honor before life
They'll never take him alive
He'd die for a man, future king of Japan
Not much time left to put pen to paper
An honor to lie here for lord and friend
Our leader flees to draw his forces together
There's hope he'll get those fuckers in the end.
That's the way of the samurai
Loyal to the knife
They'll never take him alive
Tanto in hand, there's no braver man
That’s the way of the samurai
Not afraid to die
They'll never take him alive.
Hara-kiri at war, his guts on the floor
And this letter in his hand
