Welcome friends
I am so glad you could attend
I recommend we start, now everyone's arrived

Because tonight
Despite the storm, the future's bright
There'll be no more need to fight to stay alive

My honored guests
I do consider you the best
It's why the rest were not invited to my hall

I propose
A new alliance with my foes
Form a guild none could oppose in Hero Falls

Let me put your mind at ease
As you enjoy the wine and cheese
Guarantees are in the actions, not the words

Why leave the future up to fate?
Have a drink and fill your plate
For tonight, we celebrate

I call a toast
For I respect you four the most
Please indulge your humble host as I profess

On nights like these
Let us enjoy the pleasantries
Tonight the brie and the chablis taste like success

We would be strong
If we could all just get along
It's a wrong we can make right if we agree

So as you dine
Imagine all our goals aligned
All the power will be ours I guarantee

Cooperation is the key
To invincibility
Coalescence is a blessing, not a curse

I suggest we call a truce
Put our skills to better use
Now, please enjoy the chocolate mousse

My father said
"You're either quick or else you're dead"
and he'd beat me 'til the red began to flow

It took its toll
A lesson etched upon my soul
Take control, and once you have it, don't let go

The final course
Best served cold, with no remorse
With a simple Trojan horse the deed is done

Now that you're fed
You haven't heard a word I've said
The dead have no idea what has begun

Now the hour is growing late
New opportunities await
I know my fate would be the same were roles reversed

This concludes our dinner date
Delivered on a silver plate
I am so glad that you just ate your just desserts
