My friend Mark posted a variant of the strong people don't put others down image featuring Darth Vader over on Facebook. The line "they lift them up", Darth Vader, and the song You Raise Me Up (YouTube) by Rolf Løfland and Brendan Graham meshed together and resulted in this filk.

When I am down and, oh, my soul, so weary;
When I slip up and let the rebels flee;
Then I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and start force-choking me.

You lift me up, so I can see my failure;
You lift me up, to kill with no remorse;
You are strong, though you have chronic asthma;
You lift me up, with Force I cannot see.

You lift me up, so I can see my failure…

There is no life - no life when you have left me;
Your restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am being force-choked,
I know that soon, I glimpse eternity.

You lift me up, so I can see my failure…

You lift me up, so I can see my failure…
