The death of you it still floats deep within my mind
A treasure sank beneath the waves
Light and hope have gone and left me far behind
Nowhere to run so I grab my blade and turn to face the hated
monsters on my trail
They're going to taste my pain
I'll be damned but I will fight them tooth and nail
Just let me make it plain
They'll never take me alive I promise they will pay
They stole the light from your eyes
I will not walk away
The night sky has got me thinking of you again
How many miles since I lost my way
I'm very tired among the chaos and ruin
I will not see another day

Smell of summer wind make me
Forget that I'm dead
