lyrics

“Rise to fall
(It’s) the meaning of all”
The man knew that riding into the storm
Grows the oak from a little brown acorn
But it falls down too when its time has come

So this man with a sword in his hands
He goes to the tyrant’s lair
A kingdom of blood and a kingdom of gloom
Is about to encounter its doom

From evil men just evil deeds
Fruits of a poisoned tree
The hero goes straight to weed evil’s root
And the head of the tyrant is lost

Rolls the tyrant’s head, my friend
Rolls and springs away from his golden throne
Now the tyrant knows
Rise to fall

Let people feast, the hero is back
He carries a gift into a blood-red bag
The crowd hit the bottles and drink to his health
The guest now receives many hails

Then from far away is gettin’ to town
A scary tale: a new tyrant’s rising unbound
The hero has no master, defender o’ subdued
A hail and he’s riding again

Rolls the tyrant’s head my friend
Rolls and springs away from his golden throne
Now the tyrant knows
Rise to fall

“Rise to fall
(It’s) the meaning of all”
The man knew that riding into the storm
Grows the oak from a little brown acorn
But it falls down too when its time has come

Rolls the tyrant’s head my friend
Rolls and springs away from his golden throne
