I looked into the eyes of the moon
I knew something was going to happen soon
My city was under sage 
From my enemies, like a beast
In a furious rage.
People are seen running helter skelter
Running up and down to disperse
Their shelter running cautiously  into the woods
Carrying with them their lives and
Their goods.
Our army was so weak
The commander had been trying
To mobilize them for a week
Throughout the journey
There was a scourge of silence
The  only person who spoke 
Was his royal highness
As we journeyed  through foreign

 Foreign band

Each and every one of us was 
revoked to self pity
we were set to work, and placed 
on a lot of burden
at the end of the day, we were
given a bowl of pudding
My job was to carry stones and bricks
And take out the horses to have 
a drink in the creeks.
I knew there was light 
at the end of the tunnel

passes through a funnel
On our own we put to test an uproar
Devouring our enemies like an hungry boar
We thought our city 
Was going to be in ruins
As we approached we could 
Perceive the smell of fumes
In happiness we saw our city                                                
In splendor
It’s walls standing steadily in it’s best of
