Tears are shed, a shame
I should have known
I should have thought
I could have thought
Before I cast that stone

The waves radiate far and wide
There's a ringing in my ears
For a minute
I think I'm going blind

Tears are shed, a shame
I should have known
The crown weighs heavy
Heavy as I sit back in my throne

I say hey, it wasn't me
I'm just a pawn
But the devil's not into details
Where have all the heroes gone?

Hey I don't know
Why don't you tell me?

The dream is broken
Now the mind must be woken

So what are you waiting for
Tell me what's the hesitation?
What are you waiting for
Tell me what is the delay?

Hey I don't know
The victor earns the title "The Great"
All the mysteries get unlearned
All the history just becomes a string of dates

The hordes overrun in a clean sweep
Destroying everything that was built
Where's the glory in making mothers weep?

Hey I don't know

The dream is broken
Now the mind must be woken

So what are you waiting for
Tell me what's the hesitation?
What are you waiting for
Your special invitation?
What are you waiting for
Tell me what is the delay?

Hey I don't know
