The Neverending Song

Written by: Arturus Australis

I’m in the middle of a furnace and I'm frozen to the bone 
This wasn’t what was promised; never felt this so alone!
I’ve inherited a kingdom from a corpse  upon a throne 
this wasn’t what was promised; is this the way I must atone?
  
I’m holed up in a castle trebuchet approach the walls; 
this  wasn’t what was promised; can’t take those fiery balls! 
I’m lookin’ into the future but I don’t seem to be around-
 don’t make any plans or promises; soon we’ll  meet  underground
 
I’ve got a candle
in a darkened room
but no means to light it 
this wasn’t what was promised  this is not what I was told
 
I’m clinging to a 
capsize  without the
strength to right it  
 this wasn’t what was promised  this is not what I was told
 
I’m stalked by an
Un-named beast – don’t
 know if I can fight it 
 this wasn’t what was promised  this is not what I was told
 
I’m offered a sweet
sweet apple but I know
I shouldn’t bite it 
 this wasn’t what was promised  this is not what I was told
 
There’s a poem that says
much more than its words
no-one can ever write it 
this wasn’t what was promised  this is not what I was told
 
I’m sailing 'round an
 island of hope without
 the eyes to sight it   
this wasn’t what was promised  this is not what I was told
 
 I’m facing demons
in a labyrinth without
the faith to smite’em  
 this wasn’t what was promised  this is not what I was told 


I turn my eyes from
a luring minx though
I know it’d be delightful  
 this wasn’t what was promised  this is not what I was told
 
Wanderin' lost in the
Garden of Soul and it’s never
once been insightful  
 this wasn’t what was promised  this is not what I was told
 
Standing naked in a
blizzard and my skin
is boiling somethin’ frightful  
 this wasn’t what was promised  this is not what I was told
