In a time long past tomorrow...


...sleeping in the castle of the black.
In the Leland hills are the monster tracks of a giant.
The dawn of autumn playing in the garden of the rising sun
the children they run in the yard of the Giant.
If he awakens he will crush them in the earth,
fear the children inherited at birth.

Thunder clouds close the skies
he opened up his eyes, he's awakened
hears the children in his paradise
You must leave this land forever more
or live behind these iron doors
of the darkest dungeon
So they left with the passing storm
The Gods were awakened
they will crush him in the earth.
He is forsaken
until he shares his worth.

Kings, queens, pirate, giants, castle walls
and dungeon doors
Earthbound to your treasures
sunken heart to the ocean floor
I will remember
knocking on the cold side of your door.


Spring came soon to the outside world
but the north wind whirled
through the castle halls.
Children played in the outside sun,
frost giants stood there in the garden walls.
Seasons passed, he's locked in winter
And he's filled with remorse,
his frost bitten heart!

Through a crack in the garden wall
came a child with the gift of spring
the frost giants went away
the dawn of autumn came into the garden
of the rising sun
And we were done in the eyes of the Giant.
his heart was awakened - he was forgiven then
Always remembered as a giant among men.


Kings, queens, pirate, giants, castle walls
and dungeon doors
Earthbound to your treasures
sunken heart to the ocean floor
I will remember
knocking on the cold side of your door...
