Night curls its fingers around the earth once more
And the lonely clouds fade slowly in the west
Time again to set my sacred dreams free

The magician lifts his hands, high and long
And begins a strange, rhythmic chant
Look deep in the cauldron of fantasy and wonder

In the forest where the magical beasts roam
Silent figures move quickly among the trees
To keep from being hunted for man's cruel longings

Knights are brave in the world of do or die
Fighting for the lives of kings and queens
With uncommon valor, courage and power

Dragons of mystery dwell in these lands
Proud and fearless they stalk the hills
Wandering to and fro until death does them justice

The castles are immortal, reign after reign
You see the mighty come, but they will never leave
The ghosts of the past will walk their halls forever

Swords and chivalry are part of this world
Romance and love for maidens and men
It is a time for magic and majestical prodigy.
