about

"Darmok and Jelad at Tenagra. Temba, his arms wide." This song is about the most metal and grim subjects of all.... Friendship, good communication, and effective listening.

lyrics

(Solo: K. Losinske)

Darmok ­ Fist in hand;
Jalad ­ take a stand;
Create unity on the Shores of Tanagra
Darmok ­ Fist in hand;
Jalad ­ take a stand;
Create unity on the Shores of Tanagra

Take me away,
to this rugged place
we will learn how to escape
the bounds of reality,
abstractions made real
through verbal construction;
anger and outrage,
failure of function
All stem from what we
don't know about ourselves;
security in the moment,
complacency in the rest;

What is meaning?,
what do these signs signify;
maybe there's another way;
to make a claim, have a say;

Stand with me,
promote equity
Destroy the Beast of the wild
with this alliance

Darmok ­ Fist in hand;
Jalad ­ take a stand;
Create unity on the Shores of Tanagra
Darmok ­ Fist in hand;
Jalad ­ take a stand;
Create unity on the Shores of Tanagra

Let's burn a page in history
The sands on the shore signal
the means to achieve the dream
Join with strange new beings
Together we become stronger
maybe we can last a little longer
To ignore the opportunity
Dooms us to obscurity

Attributing coincidence
to lacking communication
Breeding ground for fear
essence of alienation
Critical failures ravage,
Promise and hope slowly
Until we learn to listen
Put aside indecision

Discover a common wish
Come with me to accomplish this
The past should not command us
Our future built on trust
Difficult to see the common ground
When great troubles abound
Limits to perception
Can lead to fear and deception

(Solo: S. Delorey)

Framing and signify,
Understand or more will die
but for the time being
we must fendoff the screaming
or find the sands

soaked with our blood

we must make a story,

lexicons of victory,

Seek one another out

Explore the land some call home

Set aside your pride,

Boldly we can go

Though salvation is near

Still trapped by fear
of a lurking danger
Avoid the stranger
We can bring paradise
Forgive past crimes
to be carried through all time
I stand with you now my friend
Let our conflict end
We can begin again

(Solo: J. Bedroske)
(Solo: M. Belanger)

The story could go a different way
But In the end we won the day
The key to this plan is
The need to understand
We stood too long as one,
to see it all fall apart,
I know your meaning
I hear it in my heart

End of life a willing price
we honor your sacrifice
With this alliance
we end the pain of silence
We have made our common ground
where understanding is found
New words, new perspective
New time, new directive

We share a common wish
together we accomplished it
The past will not command us
Our future will be built on trust
