Haunted Fortress

With the fading footsteps silence returns...

With the fading footsteps silence returns...the ancient fortress buckles against the onslaught of memories -

With the fading footsteps silence returns...the ancient fortress buckles against the onslaught of memories - another night,

With the fading footsteps silence returns...the ancient fortress buckles against the onslaught of memories - another night, another moon,

With the fading footsteps silence returns...the ancient fortress buckles against the onslaught of memories - another night, another moon, another page turned yellow!

Creaking hinges,

Creaking hinges, moaning winds through deserted hallways -

Creaking hinges, moaning winds through deserted hallways - it isn't called 'The Haunted Fort' for nothing!

But alas,

But alas, it isn't a ghost of a soul that haunts it,

But alas, it isn't a ghost of a soul that haunts it, for ghosts of memories cling to it...

While fortresses older & younger have succumbed to the corrosive winds,

While fortresses older & younger have succumbed to the corrosive winds, all alone it has been standing,

While fortresses older & younger have succumbed to the corrosive winds, all alone it has been standing, enslaved to that barren hill,

While fortresses older & younger have succumbed to the corrosive winds, all alone it has been standing, enslaved to that barren hill, chained to a promise

While fortresses older & younger have succumbed to the corrosive winds, all alone it has been standing, enslaved to that barren hill, chained to a promise sighed through last breath -

'We'll be back,

'We'll be back, this isn't the end!'

So it awaits,

So it awaits, struggling against the unforgiving & relentless hammers of time.

So it awaits, struggling against the unforgiving & relentless hammers of time. Awaits the knight

So it awaits, struggling against the unforgiving & relentless hammers of time. Awaits the knight & his princess,

So it awaits, struggling against the unforgiving & relentless hammers of time. Awaits the knight & his princess, howling

So it awaits, struggling against the unforgiving & relentless hammers of time. Awaits the knight & his princess, howling 'Will they return to their truncated tale?'

Another night,

Another night, another moon,

Another night, another moon, another page of their love story turned yellow.

'Is this the end?'

'Is this the end?' the 'Haunted Fort' laments.

'Is this the end?' the 'Haunted Fort' laments. 'When will I rest?'
