Castle in the Clouds (Ignitor)

In the land of all is lost In the realm of insanity The Castle sprawls on her hill and stretches to the sky In lazy disregard Fear the Castle, flee her minions Fear the Castle, as she crouches in the clouds A thousand sightless eyes Survey her morbid realm Black asphalt tongue licks up ants of madness As they crawl Into her gaping maw Fear the Castle, flee her minions Fear the Castle, as she crouches in the clouds The fading light, like the death of hope, Is cast upon her dormered brow by a sun obscured in smoke Desperation is written on her doors With lock and key they keep the screams From seeping through the floors In the gloom, fear rises from her heart Up secret stairs these vast nightmares Come searching for their mark They take the form of slender pins of steel Which silence and divide the minds Of those come here to heal The torn skin of her walls Bleeds dust, choking and dry This monolith is a prison For the lonely prisoners of the imprisoned mind Fear the Castle, flee her minions Fear the Castle, as she crouches in the clouds She reigns, this gothic goddess In her crumbling red and gray She stands alone and impervious to the pain within Seeking nothing but the succor of madness to fill her veins Her scars run deep, to the bedrock, the ledge As summer heat rises to a leaden, airless sky The sickness within her seeps out and turns the fields to brown This road to endless hell Is paved with good intentions Black tunnels and twisting halls leading From salvation to hell and back again Fear the Castle, flee her minions Fear the Castle, as she crouches Fear the Castle, flee her minions Fear the Castle, as she crouches in the clouds
