lyrics

Drove past old forgotten places
On the other side of the mountain
The sun was brighter as it shone
Upon things rusty and intriguingly decayed, overgrown
In the pastures and meadows
Where the seeds of chaos had been sown
Chaos like a memory; you don’t know if it’s yours

Is Merlin here
Along with everyone who lost time?
And you can’t go back
But I’ll be damned if I don’t try

Signs along the road, both new and old
They all say one thing -
That you can’t go home again
Oh but knights in shining armor don’t pay them any heed
And upon their mighty steeds, they make one final stand
And in the name of chivalry, we ride
To a glorious end

Is Merlin here
Along with everyone who lost time?
And you can’t go back
But I’ll be damned if I don’t try

And we can’t, we can’t, we can’t
We can’t handle it
No we can’t, we can’t, we can’t
We can’t handle it
So we try, we try, we try, we try to get back
Yeah we try, we try, we try, we try to get back
So we try, we try, we try, we try to get back
Yeah we try, we try, we try, we try, we try, we try, we try, we try to get back
