    Curved towers stretch the sky
    Roof tiles in colours rare
    Strong grey stone of eerie shades
    Create walls thick with a mysterious world.

    At the peak of the soaring towers
    Flags dance the waltz in the wind
    A symbol to the large population outside
    Of the engulfing glory given to those within

    But the common folk dwelling near by
    Are oblivious to the havoc that reigns
    Traditional beliefs reject thoughts for weak tyranny
    Decades of oppression still strong

    It will remain identical
    For the latter of the peasants lives
    The castle is a god of invincibility
    Only when viewed from afar

    Within its constraining limits
    The silent battle continues to rage.
