Alexander's Song

1. There once was a Knight, who travelled the lands,

One day he encountered thieving brigands,

looting the bodies of commoners slain,

And so starts the story, of blood death and fury,

a tale that is haunting and daunting by far

The Legend of Alexander Don Junasstarr!

2. His blade was the finest, the crosspiece a sun,

with wings that did flare, soon the battle was done!

Alex stood proudly, this fight he had won,

But upon his last slash, twilight did pass,

Black misted darkness was all he could see,

Then fangs at his throat, his dark destiny!

3. Madness, Oh Madness, to awake with no breath,

To breathe in stale air makes no difference in death,

He called himself Seneca, his fangs dripped with blood,

A sadistic vampire, filled with desire,

to see the most good and honored of knights,

corrupted by darkness, a creature of night.

Refrain

Oh death doesn’t care, if your a woman or man,

but neither does love so they say

and if your heart’s beating or if it is still,

love finds a way, so they say...

4. Alex was changed, baptised by fire,

A slave at the whims of an elder vampire!

But there was a girl, filled with love and desire,

Zaharia showed him, that he could love again,

They fled from the vampire’s lair to the woods,

But it was a trap, there Seneca stood!

5. The vampires fought with the hatred of hell,

Seneca won, and the young knight soon fell,

The vampire killed poor Zaharia as well,

Her blood he force fed, to Alex near death,

Alex awoke, nearby Zaharia slain,

Maddened with grief, his soul wracked with pain. (burdened?)

6. Seneca bade Alexander to follow,

to a village nearby, a sleepy old hollow,

He demanded that Alex woudst slaughter them all,

But then the bell tolled, the knight found his soul,

whipped off the head of the elder vampire!

Took Zaharia’s body, to a funeral pyre.

Refrain

Oh death doesn’t care, if your a woman or man,

but neither does love so they say

and if your heart’s beating or if it is still,

love finds a way, so they say...

7. When the fire and ashes, were passed he went home,

concealed his affliction, always alone,

But he made a friend, by the name Saul he was known.

They accepted each other, becoming true lovers,

Alex was saved from a soul tortured blight,

Saul brought back joy, to the cursed young knight.

8. Would you turn me, my love, Saul one day asked,

As they drank and got drunk on a winemaker’s cask,

He begged and he begged, Alex nodded at last,

But revenge was Saul’s goal, and he gave up his soul

Avenging his parents who’d been hanged for nothing,

And with his new power, Saul murdered the King!

9. Madness! Madness! Why Saul oh why?

Come with me my love, from these lands we must fly!

They loved and they fought, laughed and they cried,

But though tis unspoken, tis true, we’re all broken,

Alex and Saul one day started a fight,

And in a blood rage, took each other’s life

Refrain

Oh death doesn’t care, if your a woman or man,

but neither does love so they say

and if your heart’s beating or if it is still,

love finds a way, so they say...

10. Zaharia gone, Seneca dead,

Alex and Saul, their life’s last blood bled,

They promised they’d meet in the next life again

Forgiveness they gave, their souls were both saved,

For what matters more, the cross bared in life?

Or the way that you bare it, despite endless strife?

11. There once was a knight who travelled the lands,

against evil’s wrath he made a last stand,

Remember his trials and tribulations,

And so ends the story of blood, death and fury,

a tale that is haunting and daunting by far,

The Legend of Alexander Don Junasstarr!
