lyrics

The Black Rook

In solitude I stand
Grasping life with my hand
Watching out the strategies that were planned

Forever I shall last
In my body of clast
Rock solid thoughts build up from concrete past

All the chessboard is what the tower sees
Delusioned pawns who will fall on their knees

Chorus:
Black Rook, I have become a Black Rook, living apart
Look, look, the castle that I am
Black Rook, I have become a Black Rook, living apart
Look, look, the stones inside the man

All knights die by the sword
All bishops are unheard
For empty battles all imbeciles gird

Dark kingdoms built on grime
Queens worthless than a dime
I witness filthy schemes from time to time

I did the castling for a thousand kings
I carried the weight of a thousand stings

Black Rook, I have become a Black Rook, living apart
Look, look, the castle that I am
Black Rook, I have become a Black Rook, living apart
Look, look, the stones inside the man

I cast myself away
From this bad-tasted play
Depraved humanity in disarray

I am panoptical
I am perpetual
Unreacheable tower with no portal

The distant castle sees crowns fade away
Sad memories to remember and portray

Black Rook, I have become a Black Rook, living apart
Look, look, the castle that I am
Black Rook, I have become a Black Rook, living apart
Look, look, the stones inside the man
