As a young boy
Chasing dragons
With your wooden sword
So mighty
You're St. George
Or you're David
And you always
Killed the beast
Times change very quickly
And you had
To grow up early
A house in smoking ruins
And the bodies
At your feet

You'll die as you lived
In the flash of a blade
In a corner
Forgotten the way
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel
One man and his honour

The smell
Of resined leather
The steely iron mask
As you cut and thrust
And parried at the
Fencing master's call
He taught you
All he never knew
To fear no mortal man
And now you'll wreak
Your vengeance
In the screams
Of evil men

You'll die as you lived
In the flash of a blade
In a corner
Forgotten the way
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel
One man and his honour

You'll die as you lived
In the flash of a blade
In a corner
Forgotten the way
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel
One man and his honour
