Act 1- The Rise of Lohigarme

I see the sun is rising high
I see the colours in the sky
Soaring eagle pass me by
It's the time of year
* * *
It all began so long ago
Summer breeze begins to blow
Magic herbs begin to grow
Summer time is here!
* * *
Elven maidens dance at the feast
Wolf and man are living in peace
A shadow can be seen in the lands of the east
The sorceress is here!
* * *
Do you think I'd even be here
If I didn't want to see her
Do you think I'd rather stay at home?
* * *
You you think that I'd despair?
When I saw her golden hair...
Do you think I'd rather be alone?
* * *
Fulfil your destiny...

Act 2 - Lohigarme's Reign

Where once there were rivers
Now Nothing but sand
Ancient curse has befallen this land
Armies of the dead are at his command
The dracolich is here!
* * *
Where once there was life now rivers of bones
Spectral kings sit on ancient thrones
Black robed wizards pour over their tomes
The Dark Sun is here

Act 3 - The Rise of a King

Then it is decided,
I know what I must do,
Think about my future,
Whether skies be grey or blue.
* * *
Rise up above my demons,
And look into their eyes,
They crown me as their leader,
With a halo made of flies.
* * *
Thorns in my head,
Fire in my eyes,
Red roses open in my palms,
And blood drips from my side.
* *
I look upon myself and see,
A creature running wild,
The dragon's bastard child!
* * *
This gauntlet of hate crushing all below
Wheels of certain destiny are keeping me in tow
Mathematics of the future makes students of us all
Time our learned teacher and the world our lecture hall
* * *
Men are crushed beneath as the fist comes crashing down
Those who wish for mercy must kneel before my crown
I come for YOU Lohigarme! I swear to bring you down
