CD Sing-Along
We have started a tradition every year of having the entire membership of the con record a sing-along song for inclusion on the Conflikt Brunch CD.

This year, the sing-along will be Leslie Fish's "Hope Eyrie".

We have reproduced the lyrics below, and a video can be found here.

Hope Eyrie

Lyrics posted by permission.

Worlds grow old and suns grow cold
And death we never can doubt.
Time's cold wind, wailing down the past,
Reminds us that all flesh is grass
And history's lamps blow out.
 
  But the Eagle has landed; tell your children when.
Time won't drive us down to dust again.
 
Cycles turn while the far stars burn,
And people and planets age.
Life's crown passes to younger lands,
Time brushes dust of hope from his hands
And turns another page.
 
  But the Eagle has landed; tell your children when.
Time won't drive us down to dust again.
 
But we who feel the weight of the wheel
When winter falls over our world
Can hope for tomorrow and raise our eyes
To a silver moon in the opened skies
And a single flag unfurled.
 
  But the Eagle has landed; tell your children when.
Time won't drive us down to dust again.
 
We know well what Life can tell:
If you would not perish, then grow.
And today our fragile flesh and steel,
Have laid our hands on a vaster wheel,
With all of the stars to know.
 
  That the Eagle has landed; tell your children when.
Time won't drive us down to dust again.
 
From all who tried out of history's tide,
Salute for the team that won.
And the old Earth smiles at her children's reach,
The wave that carried us up the beach
To reach for the shining sun.
 
  For the Eagle has landed; tell your children when.
Time won't drive us down to dust again.
