Neath Mountain Sleep Lyrics

4. Neath Mountain Sleep (7:48)
When dragons danced among the hills
And wretched wights were walking still
A legend born onto the one
The wizard came to claim her son
A sovereign right in blood preserved
The sword and stone to seal the word
Like wind-kept secrets whispered o'er
So too shall live forevermore

By the crimson setting sun in the icy autumn air
The king stands waiting, watching nature's sylvan tears
Upon the water play, set like multicolored jewels
By the fading light of day

Lo! Behold the sword of kings the lady does wield
Of which the willows sing by harvest moon to barren fields

Honor is my life
Show unto the world your destiny
and lead the way
Wits be my guide
Bring unto the world so they may see
where shadows play
I shall not fall
'Tis both kings and beggars destiny:
to Death shall fall

Then Death shall die

So Death he found, in battle met
A struggle which likes shall ne'er be seen
For thirteen moons their weapons set
Yet to eithers vantage none could see
The forest gawked and the Sidh did watch
To see who would the victor be

'Twas wyrds way that on that day Death began to tire
Mercy he did cry to be spared immortal fire

Mercy plea cannot ignore
So Death goes free to hunt once more

So it was that Death was nigh destroyed
And the king he lived on
And let to roam free
To bring order to the land
When goblins still hunted
And his name carried o're
And the moon mothered dreams
'Til to Death he fell at last

When dragons danced aming the hills
And wretched wights were walking still
A legend born unto the one
The wizard came to claim her son
Alone he sleeps in earthen womb
The forest floor his silken tomb
By trumpet call, so legend says
One day to rise once again
