By the Tyrant’s Blade

Poem By: A/C

Verse I:

Locked inside the tower,

The bells have tolled the hour;

She waits for the sun to arise from its slumber.

 

Verse II:

Off in the shattered night,

The knights rise up to fight;

Waiting only on our sight it encumbers.

 

Verse III:

Light rises from the black,

Now we’re ready to attack;

Our strength comes from our hearts, theirs from numbers.

 

Chorus I:

Up into the sky,

Walls of stone raised high,

Conquering our fear,

The battle now draws near.

 

Verse IV:

As the horns begin sound,

Drawbridge falls to the ground;

They march in shadowy steel with fiery eyes.

 

Verse V:

Flames of war begin to reign;

Draining blood of the slain

Coats the sand as scores of brave souls fall and die.

 

Verse VI:

Swords and axes slash away,

Shields and maces bash their prey;

My mistress morns the dead and still she cries.

 

Chorus II:

Climbing up the spire,

Walls adorned with fire,

Conquering their might,

As troops stand up to fight.

 

Verse VII:

Resistance is futile,

My strikes will be brutal;

He hides within his great fortress of stone.

 

Verse VIII:

Result of reaction,

He’s forced into action,

As I enter his chamber to claim the throne.

 

Verse IX:

The tyrant draws his sword,

My will shall be my ward;

This kingdom won’t restore ‘til he’s overthrown.

 

Chorus III:

Walls collapsing down,

I will take his crown,

Fighting with my art,

Force his blade into his heart.
