lyrics

lumbering; Through the night
A beast storms from a swirling height
A new threat – found at sea
A giant stalks us from beneath

Over land, they come in pairs
Hide me under a broken cairn
a life lost, priceless cost
Black despair for a makeshift cross

Set me aside
Ill be safer where I lie
Never lost; stay the course
By the light of the gods remorse

A last command, to hold the line
If victory can n’er be mine
It may just be the futile hope of lords
To fell the beast and its source

Kneel before me
My child
Now Arise
A king tonight.
I bequeath this throne
Of broken bones
Take heed my seed
Of all I've shown
Take a seat
Then pass it on
When your light is dim
And have sowed your own
