about

Sometimes knocking down barriers can be a bad thing.

lyrics

I once was king, the ruler of all things,
Biggest tree in the forest, last man in the ring
Made my home in the wilderness
Where survival was hell
The place where the most savage of creatures would choose to dwell
And here, there was a cavern next to where I resided
And No one for many centuries had been up inside it
The legend said it contained such unspeakable horrors
But if you got through it, then your life would change for the better
A place with the softest soil and the balmiest weather,
Totally uninhabited, it'd be yours forever
So on One autumn day I decided I would try it
Stared at the cavern's mouth and then bravely I stepped inside it
I conquered every trap, and vanquished every beast
Leapt over every chasm and after
A couple weeks
I Fought my way through the darkness, and finally I saw a light
Exited to a land that would truly alter my life

Verse 2
Boy meets world, it's nothing like I imagined it,
Everything I've wanted
Untarnished and uninhabited
In a few days I was cured of my every sickness
The skies are a hue that Id honestly never witnessed,
Built a home, planted crops, literally I'm the man
Took my place as sole controller of all the land
But man it gets lonely, wish that I had my friends,
They were on different paths, I'd never see them again,
Wanted badly for them to witness this paradise,
But for me to go back for them would be surely risking my life,
So I thought of a way, plans began to deploy,
Decided instead of building I would need to destroy
The cavern that separated us somehow had to open
Let there be light can't shine if my circle is broken
So I made a decision that might've altered my fate,
Opened the floodgates and now everybody escaped


Verse 3

The first days in paradise were absolute bliss,
Never knew humans were able to prosper like this,
With No restrictions everyone was invited
But of course that would eventually come back to bite us,
Everyone's can't be trusted I knew somebody would try us,
It was someone I knew, who just couldn't keep a promise,
Told us that he was loyal, turned out he wasn't honest,
That's when I decided, we needed some kinda laws
Everyone disagreed, they told me to get lost,
No judge no jury no kinda Probable cause
And Then their very first group decision was made
And it was that I should leave town, effective today
So I walked to the mouth of the cavern that I braved,
So that everyone could enjoy what they have here today..
Turned my back and I moved
Learned a valuable lesson
The very thing I destroyed was my only source of protection
