Children of the land do you hear,
Echoes of truths that once rang clear ?
Two souls intertwined
One true love they did find
Bringing land and heavens near
But flames that burned full bright, soon fell dark
Memories dimmed by shadowed hearts
In the waxing gloom, did wane the lovers' moon
Watching as their worlds drift apart
One soul's cry, A passion dwelling within
Sacrifice, A final plea to her kin
Yet this bond of hope, by treachery was broke
Scattering her words to the wind
Swelling over long,
Seas of blood, are a song
And death an afterthought
To those who fight for naught
A throne lying empty
A pain incomplete
Alone, for eternity
A pain without cease
Children of the land, answer this;
'Why must you turn to empty bliss ?'
Tell me why break trust, why turn the past to dust,
Seeking solace in the abyss ?
Tell me why create a circle none can break ?
Why must you let go, the life you were bestowed ?
This I fear I'll never know,
