LyricsEdit

As a young boy chasing dragons with your wooden sword so mighty

You're St. George or you're David and you always killed the beast.

Times change very quickly

And you had to grow up early

A house in smoking ruins and the bodies at your feet.

You'll die as you lived In the flash of the blade

In a corner, forgotten away

You lived for the touch

For the feel of the steel

One man, and his honor.

The smell of resigned leather

The steely iron mask

As you cut and thrust and parried at the fencing master's call.

He taught you all he ever knew

To fear no mortal man

And now you'll wreak your vengeance in the

Screams of evil men.

You'll die as you lived

In the flash of the blade, In a corner, forgotten away

You lived for the touch

For the feel of the steel

One man, and his honor.
