And the darkness came upon him.... A stranger to this land A mistress called that beckoned him... To rise up when he can Here’s a journey set before you... To travel to the forest unkind Her golden hair softly leading... A mystery here, yet to unwind Don’t let fate disguise you... Step beyond your fears For the moment of truth is reaching... Right beyond your tears In a moment of silent sorrow..... You will know just what do. Look deep inside your heart... To what will see you through "Don't worry about your travels"... Said the Maiden to the man I will guide you softly through.... the evil forest at hand The trolls, owls and goblin.... They stayed away from the light The calm presence of knowing..... That evil lurks in the night {Repeat Chorus} This Creature appeared before him... And slays the beauty to the ground The hero marches forward.... Just to fighting back a second round Then a surprise, right behind him.... The beauty rises in vain A trap that laid before him... is evil disguise to claim This journey of yore, doesn't ever seem to end Around we go, you tell me my friend The end must be near, my call beckons on For my biggest fear ...I must never ever, let on.. {Repeat Chorus} The Creature destroys her being... Saving our hero from his pain Proving the fact that true beauty.... Is not to those whom claim We are just of a simple race... The vixen was the one to fear We are saved from true evil..... By our courage of being here

Not in Vain 05:14
Four score and many years ago Our sons bought forth from this grain Told by those high and mounted You call will not be in vain Set up being all the lines The Alamo their life were defined Wives and child shout for the slain You call will not be in vain Time pass, and time goes Only why the wind knows Crying Out, Calling Out My life will not be, in vain Upon the beach they did land With many hands dug in the sand. Different world, that lords may be. As they scaled the walls of Normandy. High in the trees at night Vietname dazed with fire and lights. Alone, confused, bruised and abused The heroes made their own light The sacrifice that you did make. For the honor, country that you have made. With arms straight out, shouting loud. Your life was not in vain. Stuck in a hole in Iraq. Praying for the end of the attack. Trying their best, for all who'd been slain. The conquest should not be in vain. Time passes, and time goes Only why the wind knows Men Calling Out, Boys Crying Out Your life was not in vain. Years and years travel by The same story, the same time. Saving those from war insane. Your life was never in vain.
