Death will overtake us is a song that Justice of Toren One Esk heard rebels singing during the annexation of Valskaay.

The lyrics are as follows:

Death will overtake us
In whatever manner already fated
Everyone falls to it
And so long as I'm ready
I don't fear it
No matter what form it takes

The song has been confirmed by Ann Leckie to be the American shape note hymn Bunker Hill.


Death will invade us by the means appointed,
And we must all bow to the King of Terrors;
Nor am I anxious, nor am I anxious,
If I am prepared, what shape he comes in.
