lyrics

The Tower
(Knight/Winter)

At the edge of dream
The winged serpent’s silent scream
Spins a fortress out of blackest night

Bathed in misty moon glow
Scent of mystery I long to know
Relinquish my convictions I enter

Her windows alight with the soul of the world

Fountains of music pour into the dark skies of death
Devourer of darkness lets out her long breath
The serpent of knowledge unleashes its forbidden power
Drink and be filled by the ghostly light of the tower

A fire in the hearth
Fueled by the breath of maidens
Up to the highest tower I climbed

A great book bound in bone
With pages as old as stone
Every word a labyrinth untangling

My soul in flames at the edge of the world

Fountains of music pour into the dark skies of death
Devourer of darkness lets out her long breath
The serpent of knowledge unleashes its forbidden power
Drink and be filled by the ghostly light of the tower

Elixir of immortals
Sulfur on the tongues of angels
The feasting of forever has begun

My soul in flames at the edge of the world

Fountains of music pour into the dark skies of death
Devourer of darkness lets out her long breath
The serpent of knowledge unleashes its forbidden power
Drink and be filled by the ghostly light of the tower
