Romance Of A Dead Kingdom (Rishloo)

Sleep now Fragile Cradle my hope Dream 'til morning Rising again To uphold my claims to power Promises bind This place to me Peace I have found In a vision pure and simple Here in this world I am the king Dreams trouble my conscience With thoughts of those betrayed Prophecies certain Bring me to conflict often But comfort has always triumphed Against a change Walking again Among these familiar faces Hearing the same Praises they speak All here is well But somehow so unnerving In the eyes of a child The world looks bleak Fears grow ever bolder Threatening disgrace All that will be Grows clearer with every moment Whispers turn now to shouting for my escape Awake Brashly you stifled warnings See now the fruits of failure Ignorant liar Did you truly think You could stay here awhile And avoid your fate Crawling, grasping, searching, reaching for a path Through all this chaos choking on the ashes Of a life that suddenly has passed And as the screams subside I slowly raise my head To watch the final ruin And see my kingdom's end
