Still Time

Lifeless kings on broken thrones

Marrowless their hollow bones

In their fraying robes they rest

Swords and scepters on their breast

Ruling justly, Going mad

Kingdom happy, Kingdom sad

Wisdom, Counsel, Curses, Love

Ceasing from the world above

In the crypt the young man walks

And the silenced voice now talks

Do not seek to rule the land

Use no fair or iron hand


Power breeds a deadly fear

Give in to it and you’re here


Take your lute and travel far

To some distant summer star


In your youthful glory soak

Time enough for Death’s cold cloak


Bed and brawl through many lands

Soon the hour glass spills the sands


Sand grains stop the blood, you’ll see

Death no longer mystery


Learn and laugh and love your fill

Live before your 

Time stands
