lyrics

[Villagers:]
The bird sat on his lofty throne
Ordering bloody slaughter.
The swordsman stood up,
Challenged him.
His feathers ruffled,
He glared down.

They were locked in strong contest
In the sky
We cheered our champion
On to victory
Hoping we’d be free.

The bird took note of the dam
Built to recover the wise fishfolk.
He strove to wreck it
Ending all.
The swordsman checked him
Pressing hard.

The bitter blade cut through the neck of
That wretched cruel bird.
But the structure could not
Withstand it.
The dam burst water
Killing all.

Now I’m dead.
