about

a dark little number written after everything collapsed and later melded with "The Rains of Castamere" lyrics from "A Game of Thrones" book. This is a rough mix, it will likely find its way onto the upcoming album.

lyrics

for many years i worked this land
i stood behind the plow
what once was green is turned to brown
this is a dead place now

and who are you, the proud lord said
that i should stoop so low?
only a cat of a different cloak, that's all the truth i know
in a coat of gold, or a coat of red
a lion still has claws
and mine are long and sharp, my lord, as long and sharp as yours
and so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of castamere
but now the rains fall on his hall, with no one left to hear

the emerald heights that once were filled
with flocks of sheep and cow
those rolling hills are silent here
this is a dead place now


and who are you, the proud lord said
that i should stoop so low?
only a cat of a different cloak, that's all the truth i know
in a coat of gold, or a coat of red
a lion still has claws
and mine are long and sharp, my lord, as long and sharp as yours
and so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of castamere
but now the rains fall on his hall, with no one left to hear

the walls of stone that once were filled
with the friends that fate allowed
those ruined halls are cold and still
this is a dead place now


and who are you, the proud lord said
that i should stoop so low?
only a cat of a different cloak, that's all the truth i know
in a coat of gold, or a coat of red
a lion still has claws
and mine are long and sharp, my lord, as long and sharp as yours
and so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of castamere
but now the rains fall on his hall, with no one left to hear

and so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of castamere
but now the rains fall on his hall, with no one left to hear
