Well, I recall his parting words
Must I accept his fate
Or take myself far from this place?

I thought I heard a black bell toll
A little bird did sing
Man has no choice when he wants everything

[Chorus]
We'll rise above the scarlet tide
They trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride

Man goes beyond his own decision
Gets caught up in a mechanism
Of swindlers who act like kings
And jokers who break everything

The dark of night was swiftly fading
Close to the dawn of day
Why would I want him just to lose him again

[Chorus]
