Each night I lie awake,
upon my rival's bed of stone.
Captured, in a tortured mind,
my heart without a home.

The burning flame that use to be
Grows dim with bound dreams
as on this bed of tears I lie
The river begins to stream

Battles rage within the cage,
as darkness hides my sun.
I felt the fate at hell's gate
The victory not yet won.

Another place in time, I pledge
The common pledge of men
To triumph, to triumph
Even, as life is at its end.
