Em                                   C
Ringed islands make up Lantia,
G                              D
In aspects bound together;
Em                                      D
But my heart is bound to duty,
Em               C
Always and forever.
G                                  G
My heart is bound to duty
Bm                Em
Always and forever.

Duty stands in shadows,
And cares not for recognition.
Duty stands when others flee,
Forsaking all ambition.
My heart is bound to duty
Forsaking all ambition.

Duty stands because it’s right;
It stands because someone must.
‘Tis duty calls me forwards,
And may call me to the last
My heart is bound to duty
Who may call me to the last.

Duty’s like the desert,
Soft as sand and strong as sun,
As clear as desert skies at night,
To her my soul succumbs.
My heart is bound to duty
To her my soul succumbs.

Oh Tamarus, Isle of Duty,
Look at all the differences you’ve made,
The hearts you’ve touched in passing,
All the lives you’ve saved.
My heart is bound to duty
And all the lives she’s saved.
