Paladin Playlist 43
Aw man, when I here this song, I know I'm writing a climax. This is it. This is the hero fighting for that last inch. This is the hero questioning their ability to even draw one more breath. This is Hero by Skillet.
Assuming you don't have a cocky, kill 'em all and let God sort 'em out kind of hero, this is a fantastic song for that last clash. Remember, the climax is no less an internal battle than external. The desire to surrender, to give up, to give in, should be just as important as the physical obstacle between the hero and the goal and this song is that fuel that keeps the hero going. This is the love of another, the power of friendship, whatever McGuffin you need to get your hero, bloodied and bruised, to stand up one last time.
So, please enjoy (and hopefully be inspired to write by) Hero from Skillet.
