lyrics

Twitching on his watchtower overlooking the entire dirty forest he recalls the words that sweaty wizard listed off to him: “Slaves run away, masters return.”
If only he could have remembered the names, but he didn't.

So now he gets up and looks his own tattered hair-like moss grown down to the floor.
Here emerges the same scarred beetle that conversed with them the previous night.
Afraid of what is about to occur, he calmly collects himself and counts off their few available options.

Head off to the city and recapture the escaped.
Cut off his moss and get a new name.
Quesitont he relativity of this beetle
Jump!

Meanwhile our mainland visitors had carved their marks into the stone.
And while the wizard counted candle-marks the days found growing old a task too tight a squeeze to pull off.
Every following descent had placed protaganistic marks among the mundane ranks of men.

Having picked the altogether most dangerous option of what to do next, they calmly collect themselves again, scraping the morning-dew-like tar off their tweed jacket.
Hoping to retain what few supernatural powers they had acquired, they walk the pass through the mountains.
Thinking they've taken great care of this land over the past few weeks, warding off various outsiders.
In fact, they're sure as heck they could have warded off an entire army of wolves.
At least that's what...at least that's what they think.

But they're lining the route just now and he's falling for their trap.
Leaving for a self revenge?
His land left armless.

Alone on the lit-up road to living,
just letting the demon trail behind.
A lich with a knack for finding beauty,
his body intact as a crumbling statue.
