benjamin was reared among the great ones
his father rules a city in the clouds
with his mother right beside him
he's had a king and queen to guide him to the crown
one day his father told him of the testing
how he'd have to face the dragon down below
and retrieve a pearl of wonder
a jewel beyond all others

he said, return with the pearl
brave your way through the maze of that world
you'll have my honor
return to my side
and i'll clothe you in raiment of light
just like thy brother
heir to forever
if you remember to get the pearl

so ben took his journey down through egypt
and lodged among the merchants by the sea
but he feared the stare of strangers
and soon gave into danger foolishly
he ate the food and wore the clothes of babel
so he forgot he was the child of a king
but his father knew the matter
so he sent a benefactor
with a message to awake ben from his sleep

return with the pearl
brave your way throught maze of that world
you'll have my honor
return to my side
and i'll clothe you in raiment of light
just like thy brother
heir to forever
if you remember to get the pearl

the words struck familiar
his memory revived
he entered the waters and left babel behind
outlasting the dragon he captured the pearl
love urging him onward past the snares of that world
'til he came to the gateway that all face alone
his father there to welcome him home

you've come with the pearl
fought your way through the maze of that world
so you'll have my honor
you've returned to my side
now i clothe you in raiment of light
just like thy brother
heir to forever
because you remembered to get the pearl
