    Look up
    What does my lantern light?
    A mythical beast takes flight
    And flies overhead

    And strikes with the head of a lion
    Wings of a bird
    Tail of a stinging scorpion scourge

    Let's go seek the creature
    Of legend and lore
    Taking our bows on a quest for the manticore

    It haunts the night, stalking, preying on the skies
    Killing again, it's time to hunt and slay the beast

    Why do your bravest soldiers
    Join you on your quest
    A company of might and magic equal to the test
    Defend with all your skill, leave all your doubts behind
    No one shortsword could be enough to kill the manticore

    Slay the fearsome beast, the manticore
    Or you will rest in peace, the manticore
    Paralyze you cold, the manticore
    A power to behold, the manticore

    The beast, it hunts, for meat, preying on human death

    On it's trail
    Will you strike
    Do you dare?

    A demon that kills in the night devouring flesh

    Into the horror's lair
    Devoid of all things light
    Stalking you from the darkness with the clearest sight
    One swift violent motion
    Stinger in your eye
    Poisons coursing through, freezing up your mind

    Body's growing cold, the manticore
    You will die alone, the manticore
    It ate your friends alive, the manticore
    You're the last to kill, the manticore

    Cold, the creature will eat you alive
    Befor e the reaper closes your eyes
    Tearing the skin from your back
    Relentless in attack
    Your last ef fort strength and home
    Magic dagger in it's throat
    Blood running into your mouth
    Choking on it's pain

    When they find you
    They won't know you rose to stand and heed the call!
