"The Relic" as written by and Russell/pinnella Allen....
Silver cross in ancient halls, deep inside the castle walls
Bound to sleep, forever locked in chains
Evil carved into the stone, ancient words they've never known
A serpent's silent shroud still remains

Come with me and I'll make all your wishes come true
Lifting the chains of oppression from you
Wiping away the lines carved in your face
Take the relic from this place

Carry on, into the horizon, wielding courage, staff in hand
Journey on, through shadows and dreams, and what lies beyond the guardian's keep

Prey and siege in voiceless woe, whose dust was scattered long ago
Awaken from the dark and endless sleep
Man's desires, now mortal wounds, believing tales and shallow truths
Hardened hearts now tremble in the keep

Trust in me and I'll lay all your nightmares to waste
Take the relic from this place

Carry on, into the horizon, wielding courage, staff in hand
Journey on, through shadows and dreams, and what lies beyond the guardian's keep

    General CommentI think this is about an adventurer of some kind being beckoned by some sentient (and probably evil) magical item to defeat the guardian and take it from it's 'prison' in the keep.

    I like the concept, but it's really the vocals of this song that make it one of my favorites.
