The Oracle Of Zadar


A Legend shared by very few
who journeyed to Zadar
An oracle who never aged
descended from the stars

She walks along the ocean side
awaiting mortal men
Her beauty is astonishing
and hard to comprehend

Her words are measured and concise 
they penetrate the soul
She knows the thoughts within your mind
their under her control

The Oracle will not waste time
she'll make it very clear
And walk up to you face to face
and then these words you'll hear

You've traveled far and here I am
you have one choice to make
A night with me till morning light
or knowledge you can take

If you should choose to be with me
your life will surely end
You'll join the others all around
who then became the sand

If knoweledge is in deed choice
great riches will be yours
You'll leave this place and not come back
your youth will be restored

And now your moment has arrived 
you only have once choice
Decide what matters most to you
and let me hear your voice

The legend of the Oracle
is easy to dismiss
So many men did not come home
they traded life for bliss
