"Warriors" as written by Daniel Wayne Sermon, Alexander Junior Grant, Daniel Coulter Reynolds, Daniel Platzman and Benjamin Arthur Mckee....
As a child you would wait
And watch from far away.
But you always knew that you'd be the one
That work while they all play.

In youth you'd lay
Awake at night and scheme
Of all the things that you would change,
But it was just a dream!

Here we are, don't turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town.
Here we are, don't turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town
From dust.

Will come
When you'll have to rise
Above the best and prove yourself,
Your spirit never dies!

Farewell, I've gone to take my throne above,
But don't weep for me
'Cause this will be
The labor of my love

Here we are, don't turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town.
Here we are, don't turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town
From dust.

Here we are, don't turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town.
Here we are, don't turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town
From dust.

    My InterpretationWhen I hear this song, I'm thinking of a man who is training his apprentice. But he knows that soon he will have to leave his pupil (most likely dying), and as his final piece of advice, he's telling him of the legacy that he and his people has left, and that eventually the youth will take up that torch, and that he's ready for it.

    My InterpretationThis song reminds me of America (my favorite song from Night Visions). I think it's about a revolution (perhaps the American Revolution), and the song is one revolutionary talking to another like a mentor:

    "As a child you would wait
    And watch from far away.
    But you always knew that you'd be the one
    That work while they all play."

    That last line for me means that the people seemed to ignore what was going on, and just went with it. The revolutionaries would have to change things (That work while they all play) It could also be an allusion to the fact that the British exploited the Americans to pay off their war debt.

    "In youth you'd lay
    Awake at night and scheme
    Of all the things that you would change,
    But it was just a dream!"

    Pretty straightforward. The revolutionaries wished for change individually but, without assembling, it seemed as a dream. The dream could also be their goal.

    "Here we are, don't turn away now,
    We are the warriors that built this town.
    Here we are, don't turn away now,
    We are the warriors that built this town
    From dust."

    Awesome chorus. It just says to keep hope and faith in what you do. (If we continue in the American revolution subject, the town could be a metaphor for the US)

    "The time will come
    When you'll have to rise
    Above the best and prove yourself,
    Your spirit never dies!"

    Farewell, I've gone to take my throne above,
    But don't weep for me
    'Cause this will be
    The labor of my love"

    The mentor has died, perhaps from fighting the revolution. He prays that the other revolutionary will take his place, continue the fight and be courageous.
