forgotten forest lyrics – scythia

an oaken citadel
unscathed by the touch of man
intrusion deep within
the womb of an ancient land
could this be a sacred place
sheltered from the war?
treasures for the powerful lie
beyond the ivy door

dusk settles
trees beyond the reach of the sun
languishing the tale
of a former age
time speaks another tongue
the path is always fleeting
never to be found
the trees are always whispering
never to be heard

whispers pierce the stillness
from a dark place beyond the mist
path growing colder
trees wither away

out of the woods comes a cry
a cry of distress
onward we march
deep heart of this forest
where an ancient evil seethes
from the roots of the trees
inner sanctum, night ellipses day
calmly sits a bearded man
deep in meditation
his lips begin to move
an out-pour of forbidden love
