A mod will post if it's closing
It said it was closing at 10:26?

Well, ok (y) :D

Ignore them, congrats to you, Lieutenant Colonel
I wish I had your command instead of manning George's journal
No, you don't
Yes, I do
Now, be sensible
From what I hear, you've made yourself indispensable
Well, well, I heard
You've got a special someone on the side, Burr
Is that so?
What are you tryin' to hide, Burr?
I should go
No, these guys should go
What? No!
Leave us alone
Man!
It's alright, Burr, I wish you'd brought this girl with you tonight, Burr
You're very kind, but I'm afraid it's unlawful, sir
What do you mean?
She's married
I see
She's married to a British officer
Oh shit
Congrats again, Alexander, smile more
I'll see you on the other side of the war
I will never understand you
If you love this woman, go get her! What are you waiting for?
I'll see you on the other side of the war
I'll see you on the other side of the war

Theodosia writes me a letter every day
I'm keeping the bed warm while her husband is away
He's on the British side in Georgia
He's trying to keep the colonies inline
But he can keep all of Georgia
Theodosia, she's mine
Love doesn't discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep loving anyway
We laugh and we cry and we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there's a reason I'm by her side
When so many have tried
Then I'm willing to wait for it
I'm willing to wait for it
My grandfather was a fire and brimstone preacher
(Preacher, Preacher, Preacher)
But there are things that the
Homilies and hymns won't teach ya
(Teach ya, Teach ya, Teach ya)
My mother was a genius (Genius)
My father commanded respect (Respect, Respect)
When they died they left no instructions
Just a legacy to protect
Death doesn't discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep living anyway
We rise and we fall and we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there's a reason I'm still alive
When everyone who loves me has died
I'm willing to wait for it (Wait for it)
I'm willing to wait for it
I am the one thing in life I can control
(Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)
I am inimitable
I am an original
I'm not falling behind or running late
(Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)
I'm not standing still
I am lying in wait (Wait, wait, wait)
Hamilton faces an endless uphill climb
(Climb, climb, climb)
He has something to prove
He has nothing to lose
(Lose, lose, lose, lose)
Hamilton's pace is relentless
He wastes no time
(Time, time, time)
What is it like in his shoes?
Hamilton doesn't hesitate
He exhibits no restraint
He takes and he takes and he takes
And he keeps winning anyway
He changes the game
He plays and he raises the stakes

And if there's a reason
He seems to thrive when so few survive, then Goddamnit
I'm willing to wait for it (Wait for it)
I'm willing to wait for it
Life doesn't discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
(And we keep living anyway)
We rise (and we fall)
We fall (and we break)
(And we make our mistakes)
And if there's a reason I'm still alive
When so many have died
Then I'm willin' to-
Wait for it (Wait for it, wait for it)
Wait for it (Wait for it, wait for it
(Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)
(Wait)

Stay alive
Stay alive
I have never seen the General so despondent
I have taken over writing all his correspondence
Congress writes, George, attack the British forces
I shoot back, we have resorted to eating our horses
Local merchants deny us equipment, assistance
They only take British money, so sing a song of sixpence
The cavalry's not coming
But, sir
Alex, listen, there's only one way for us to win this
Provoke outrage
Outright
That's right
Don't engage, strike by night
Remain relentless 'til their troops take flight
Make it impossible to justify the cost of the fight
Outrun
Outrun
Outlast
Outlast
Hit 'em quick, get out fast
Chick-a-plao!
Stay alive 'til this horror show is past
We're gonna fly a lot of flags half-mast
Raise a glass
I go back to New York and my apprenticeship
I ask for French aid, I pray that France has sent a ship
I stay at work with Hamilton, we write essays against slavery
And every day's a test of our camaraderie and bravery
We cut supply lines, we steal contraband
We pick and choose our battles and places to take a stand
And every day, sir, entrust me with a command
And every day
No
He dismisses me out of hand
Instead of me, he promotes Charles Lee
Makes him second-in-command
I'm a general, whee!
Yeah, he's not the choice I woulda gone with
He shits the bed at the Battle of Monmouth

Everyone attack
Retreat
Attack
Retreat
What are you doing, Lee? Get back on your feet
But there's so many of them
I'm sorry, is this not your speed?
Hamilton
Ready, sir
Have Lafayette take the lead
Yes, sir
A thousand soldiers die in a hundred-degree heat
As we snatch a stalemate from the jaws of defeat
Charles Lee was left behind without a pot to piss in
He started saying this to anybody who would listen
Washington cannot be left alone to his devices
Indecisive from crisis to crisis
The best thing he can do for the revolution
Is turn 'n go back to planting tobacco in Mount Vernon
Ooh!
Don't do a thing, history will prove him wrong
But, sir
We have a war to fight, let's move along
Strong words from Lee, someone oughta hold him to it
I can't disobey direct orders
Then I'll do it
Alexander, you're the closest friend I've got
Laurens, do not throw away your shot

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine
It's the Ten Duel Commandments
It's the Ten Duel Commandments
Number one
The challenge, demand satisfaction
If they apologize, no need for further action
Number two
If they don't, grab a friend, that's your second
Your lieutenant when there's reckoning to be reckoned
Number three
Have your seconds meet face to face
Negotiate a peace
Or negotiate a time and place
This is commonplace, 'specially 'tween recruits
Most disputes die, and no one shoots
Number four
If they don't reach a peace, that's alright
Time to get some pistols and a doctor on site
You pay him in advance, you treat him with civility
You have him turn around so he can have deniability
Five
Duel before the sun is in the sky
Pick a place to die where it's high and dry
Number six
Leave a note for your next of kin
Tell 'em where you been
Pray that hell or heaven lets you in
Seven
Confess your sins
Ready for the moment of adrenaline when you finally face your opponent
Number eight
Your last chance to negotiate
Send in your seconds, see if they can set the record straight
Alexander
Aaron Burr, sir
Can we agree that duels are dumb and immature?
Sure
But your man has to answer for his words, Burr
With his life? We both know that's absurd, sir
Hang on, how many men died because Lee was inexperienced and ruinous?
Okay, so we're doin' this
Number nine
Look 'em in the eye, aim no higher
Summon all the courage you require
Then count
