The Key

Above the storm clouds begin to gather.

The orange sun still shining through.

My pulse accelerates.

I discover something time tried to conceal.

A sensation overwhelms my form.

This is more than gold.

A key with all the answers to the earth

but I’m not moral of it.

Promising virtues of honor and dignity.

Caught up in its charisma.

Left untended the forsaken ones survive.

The fertile ground still rising up.

Ambitions magnify.

My gift of knowledge could put an end to it.

I cannot erase our infancy

when all of this I love.

A key with all the answers to the earth

but I’m not moral of it.

Controlling the drift of the day

and the hush of night.

I am the Great Decider.

It spoke in riddles I could not comprehend.

The things I saw were all too grave

and just around the corner.

Gleaming swords cross to keep the status quo.

Even if it all went over the ledge

I will not intervene.

(Repeat Chorus)
