A Wayfarer's Tale Lyrics

3. A Wayfarer's Tale (7:13)
Hear me now, my tale to be told
Of dreams of greed and sins of old
The tide breaks calm and closes in
The sails catch wind, my tale begins
Journey out to sea, lust and greed follow me
Ride the path to shame, winds of deceit call my name
Shipwreck of centuries old, festival of long dead gold
Innocents not long on life, but long to die for my pleasure
Ahead lies the monstrosity, unveiled in glory for me to see
So sad a fate so many should die, but no more deserved for one such as I
Footstep through the dread, torn limbs and flesh now shred
Gather together the jewels from this ship of fools
As I turn to flee, mangled hands reach for me
The dead now rise at last to protect identity with the past
More lost souls rise from the depths of the sea
and surround me on the shore
Gamble your soul for this chest of gold
or dwell with us now and forever more
I grab for life, I run for gold
The wind is with me, the sails take hold
I am the man who cheated death
With newfound wealth and tainted breath
I hear the limbs scrape below
Life breaks surface with death in tow
Now I've learned too late to see
I dwell below for now and eternity
