Solo | Tower

The wind moves swiftly o'er the land

The wind moves swiftly o'er the land and blows the clouds away.

The wind moves swiftly o'er the land and blows the clouds away. It sweeps the grass and breaks the boughs,

but the tower does not bend.

The rain pours strong and soaks the buds

The rain pours strong and soaks the buds that sprout from loamy soil.

The rain pours strong and soaks the buds that sprout from loamy soil. It floods the valleys and the plains,

but the tower does not drown.

The earth corrodes and rumbles loud

The earth corrodes and rumbles loud as rocks begin to crack.

The earth corrodes and rumbles loud as rocks begin to crack. It quakes the mountains and ravines,

but the tower does not break.

The fire consumes the forest leaves

The fire consumes the forest leaves that grow on branches thin.

The fire consumes the forest leaves that grow on branches thin. It eats the flower petals up,

but the tower does not burn.

Against the elements it stands,

Against all massive odds,

Against all expectations wrought,

The tower's soul remains.

END

Tower
