Guardian of the Tomb

Do the brave that dare the broken deep,
Courage amongst the merciless fear.
Down to that forgotten, silent sleep.

On take by chance, of claim, to keep,
Greed that weaves the path to steer.
Do the brave that dare the broken deep.

Bore by the stunt of tools to dig and reap,
Not know what lurks beneath that leer.
Down to that forgotten, silent sleep.

And bound below the trove so steep,
Restless tombs by kings of blood and tear,
Do the brave that dare the broken deep.

Yet stumble to cross the wealth in a sweep,
Disturbed blackguard of the overseer.
Down to that forgotten, silent sleep.

Echo of screams the distant weep,
Men fool or brave without a clear.
Do the brave that dare the broken deep,
Down to that forgotten, silent sleep.
