Track Name: Return to the Forgotten Woods
These spirits lurked in the woods,
For many centuries they preyed upon my fears,
And feasted upon my anguished tears,
Entering my realm through their shadows,
In the mist they withered for some time,

I have reached the end of the farthest parts of this age,
Seeing nothing but ruin and desolation in the forgotten woods,

The winters come and go,
And still I remain in sorrow,
In a forlorn grave, in these hills aged,
Our tombs remain, but the dead move on with time.
