about

Shortly before dawn, Anselm encounters and wakes a giant dragon napping in a clearing made by his deadly fire, in the dark woods of Rasmath.

lyrics

Elsorth the dragon sleeps
Elsorth has come down
From the mountains

Fear the dragon, smell his breath
Fear the reckless, flee the monster
Save your life, he watches you

Down with the mist he came here
To light a fire
Like the wind he flies high
He will spare none

Down from the mountain he came
Burn down all life
He came

Elsorth’s like fire alive
His breath is destruction and horror

Knight, take heed, hold your horse
Spare your life, don’t go into fight
Knight, don’t be brave, you would die
You know it for sure

You are still young
You can’t fight against a dragon
Don’t go into fight
Anselm, take heed
Do not throw away your life

Elsorth the dragon sleeps
Elsorth has come down
From the mountains

Death he gave to thousand men
Fear his power
Fire he lights from cold stones
Fear his fire

Fear, ride on
Fear, ride on
Fire will burn, kill, tear apart

Knight, don’t wake the dragon
Spare your life
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
He breathes fire

Fast like lightning, he would burn you
Large like mountain, he would crush you
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
Too late, he saw you!

“You’ve come a long way to die, proud knight
Is it for me that you bear those gifts?”

“You are mistaken if you think I’m rich
I am but a poor traveler on his way home”

“You’re but a poor liar, foolish knight
My sight is keener than eagle’s eyes
I see the sword hanging from your horse
I know its value is beyond count

There’s no need to lie again
Though I relish your attempts
There’s no real need to pretend
I don’t know what is your plan

Annihilation
Annihilation
Annihilation
Don’t you fear my
Wrath?”

Knight, don’t wake the dragon
Spare your life
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
He breathes fire

Fast like lightning, he would burn you
Large like mountain, he would crush you
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
Too late, he saw you!

Elsorth the dragon awoke
Elsorth has come down
From the mountains

Elsorth the dragon is alive
He has come down
Elsorth has come to take your land
He will burn all

“I feel like burning you right now
For your steed’s sure a nice dinner
But I think I will let you go
Call for help so more men will come

How dare you think you can fight Elsorth
My armour is a thousandfold stronger than yours
My teeth can cut through steel and stone
My mouth breathes terror and destruction!

There’s no need to lie again
Though I relish your attempts
There’s no real need to pretend
I don’t know what is your plan

Annihilation
Annihilation
Annihilation
Don’t you fear my
Wrath?”

Knight, don’t wake the dragon
Spare your life
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
He breathes fire

Fast like lightning, he would burn you
Large like mountain, he would crush you

Knight, don’t wake the dragon
Spare your life
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
He breathes fire

Fast like lightning, he would burn you
Large like mountain, he would crush you
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
Too late, he saw you!
