We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home

The (8) is a ghost note.  As you're releasing the bend on the 10, lift
up your finger so that the 8 sounds.  In a way it's a VERY gentle
pull-off.  You can also pick it softly if you want, I guess.

Rhy. Fig. 2

The 232 thing is just a triplet, and I wanted to stick to the pattern of
two dashes per eighth note.
