About this track:
///Vast prizes of gold and diamond within reach. Greed can cloud even the clearest of minds, at its peril.///

lyrics

Decadent dreams of opulence
mounts of treasure the stars to outshine
encased within the earth’s walls

A man has a claim to riches
that fall within his grasp
delve in the depths of the earth
the veins of the planet

Ignore the warnings of the crows across the gate
the slow descent into the realm of treasures

Drawn towards the knocking sounds
the richest veins to find
resounding through the corridors
the timpani to your swansong

Hear the shrill sound of the horn
bouncing off the damp walls
as menacing eyes alight in the shade

the creaking sound of the ropes
as the prizes come into sight
the silver gleam on the scissors’ blade
the lifeline is cut

A man has a claim to riches
that fall within his grasp
delve in the depths of the earth
the veins of the planet

The sun illuminates a final tableau
displayed at the gates on the surface
destitute as any man leaves this earth
