Knight Cail's Refrain.
A scroll found under a stone slab, in the Gray Knight, Cail's, room.
The world around me, I see its fear.
The people's minds, the children's eyes,
the world in them, the life of many a year.
I see it all, my name is Cail,
My death is nigh if this is true,
If I am wrong, I am filled with a mad tale,
One I see, a world I see, a reason, a hope, a desert of man.
This can not be, it will not be, the season passed, a tightened rope, an insight to cut or tie.
The king of right, also the king of lies?
If it is so, my body shall slowly lie,
down to my grave, I go, willingly,
for this, then, is no world for me.
I thee farewell, fair memory,
the world I knew, the revelries.
And last of all, my king and betrayer,
the last one I held to, now made in this hour,
as a falsehood living, as an evil satyr.
My friends I say good bye, if I am proven sane,
if not, I will live, though only in a silent reason.
The forward trodding, a reflex only, a song, a refrain...
Misguided hopes, now dieing away
