In the time of dragons and sorcery and trolls,
There lived eight cloaked figures
Sent to save our dreams and goals
And they traveled through the trenches,
Though the ice and hail and snow
To get to the castle at the top of the hill
Where they'd win back our souls.
"Let us in the drawbridge because we're not going home..."
(Enter the moat beast)
Trapped by castle mouth, I've come to devour hope
Your child's open mind is my doorway to your home
I creep beneath their beds, I watch them when they play
But I'll come up to eat them on their marching day...
"Let us in the drawbridge because we're not going home..."
(The sage speaks!)
The winter's silence was shattered
As they shouted across the shore, "Let us in!"
And the only answer was the creak of a trap door
The wizard sent an army of spiders and snakes
Caught under a forbidden spell to fell the spirit of imagination
(And serpents were known to serve him well)
But the battle was quick and painless,
From the children no blood shed
Only a single word was spoken
To dispel the black cloud over their heads
The wizard fled as turrets were felled!
He perished at the sound of the sacred word of the forests,
Known as "inspiration" and the drawbridge lowered again...
And once inside, the people said...
"Now we're moving in the castle, now we're moving up the hill,
Now we've won another battle and we're traveling still!
So slam your body down and wind it all around!
Now we're home on the range just like John Paul Rains!
So let me hear your donkey call and let me see your block--
Stop! Let me see your mean streak for those about to rock
And there's nobody who can open the drawbridge like you...!"
