The person, the person, the person with weapons is a song that Justice of Toren One Esk learned on Valskaay. The pro-reform Anaander Mianaai uses it as an access to control Breq's behaviour.

The lyrics are as follows:

The person, the person, the person with weapons.
You should be afraid of the person with weapons. You should be afraid.
All around the cry goes out, put on armor made of iron.
The person, the person, the person with weapons.
You should be afraid of the person with weapons. You should be afraid.

This song is a gender-neutral translation of the actual late-fifteenth-century French song L'Homme Armé, or the Armed Man.
