|The Tarnished Knight bound up his wounds
To staunch his bleeding soul
The pain in waves did crease his brow
For lost was his hearts goal
A new dawn rose both dark and grim
His spirit cast no glow
His trail was marked with seeping blood
Twas all life had to show
Don't follow me for I am gone
To face another foe
I have not strength to meet and match
From you another blow
My armour tied and buckled on
Is stained like brown/black coal
From others it will shelter me
But you have crushed my soul
A contest lost by both of us
Our future died that day
And now I'll wander uselessly
Until I fade away
