"In The Eyes Of A Sword" is track nine on the Hungry Lights studio album "The Awry Ascent."

StoryEdit

In this chapter, Prill has reached a dead end, as he is stranded in open water with no wind to carry his vessel. In this downtime, Prill is left alone with his thoughts, and questions the authenticity of his voyage. Soon enough, he is filled with an inner-fire and takes control of his quest, expressing more and more desire to make his dream a reality.

LyricsEdit

My fantasy was soon to uncurl

The fern I plucked had drank the nectar from the pernicious soil

All trepidation had been contained

And if the wind would catch in my sail,

I'd find the beast that fouled up the water

Impel the lure that would change the course of fate


With no wind in the doldrums, you had pigeonholed my dream

And pressing quandaries on the layline kept me anchored in that spot


Was this an omen or fluke?

I should have thought things through

There'd be no misconceptions to step on my shoes


Again, I'm pulled in the wrong direction

-Burdened by the knowledge in my crown

And in the standstill, I felt my mane grow

I was a lion in the swell!

And at that moment of true allegiance,

At sudden, a squall had bit my tail

That precious virtue had been forgotten

No lies would sit upon my throne


There was a fire in my eyes!

And I soon made my way to luff

Would I feel guilty for doubting the ways of your will?


Have no pride in the ocean

The waves of constancy hiding my unkempt tears

Where the life of a no one; the same as a nobleman

Heroes and scoundrels alike in the eyes of a sword


I need no compass,

For a tiger's eye spearheads my journey through the open water's maw

Into the mistral of a wrathful, nettled god

No ship would sail here, for the whirl had etched a drowning


And the rain pouring down made it difficult to see

I was carrying on my back, all the weight of the world

How I suffered in the maze of the giants

O' the mess!

I had created such impressive walls

And in my mind—no, I could never ever fault!


I dreamed, I visioned that I caught a treasure with my spiral

And sheer ferocity had pulled its carcass to my palm

And in such moment, I would make that wish a solid maxim!

O' I'd accomplish such a feat that no one ever had!


Still, there is fear in my eyes...

I never think things through

And on this voyage of arrogance, I had forgotten just who I am


Have no pride in the ocean

The waves of constancy hiding my unkempt tears

Where the life of a no one; the same as a nobleman;

Heroes and scoundrels alike in the eyes of a sword
