The Gift of Music Lyrics

3. The Gift of Music (4:00)
Track rating :  88 / 100       Votes :  12       [ ]
EXT. RAVENSKILL TOWN SQUARE - DAY

[Narrator]
Far in the distant future
Beyond the pages of our time
Cold-blooded wicked tyrants
Threaten the freedom of mankind

Corruption, lust, and greed
Define the new nobility
Changing the course of history

Across the vast North Empire
Most people struggle to survive
Living a meek existence
While their secluded leader thrives

[Arhys]
We are living day to day
Forced to bear the lion's share
People just don't have the time for music anymore
But no one seems to care

My friends, I’ve seen The Chosen One
Our quest for freedom has begun
He will be the answer to our prayers

There walks a God among us
Who's seen the writing on the wall
He is the revolution
He'll be the one to save us all

My brother Gabriel
Is all the hope we need
Shining like a beacon in the night
Shepherd of Ravenskill
A reason to believe

Music is the gift he brings
The songbird stops to listen when he sings!
