  • All who still remain
    Are leaving their shelter
    One by one
    The King leads his court

    The sun seeks it's own reflection
    On their clothes that shine like Gold

    I speak the language of the colourless present
    My words do not reach their ears anymore

    A quest in vain
    Trying to hold on to my youth
    But still I remember those princes and wenches

    He tries to tell me reality took over my soul
    The walls behind which I wish to dream
    Are coming down

    Those princes and wenches
    Visiting the castle
    Represented my infant years
    They flee into eternal woods
    Only the jester turns around
    One last time
    Now I recognise my sad companion
    Who kept me company
    Countless times

    The Jester kept me company countless times
    In hours that seemed darker than these

    He tries to tell me reality took over my soul
    The walls behind which I wish to dream
    Are coming down
    He tries to tell me reality took over my soul
    The walls behind which I wish to dream
    Are coming down down down!
