Four knights ruled the realm

Safety of the humans they kept.

Four knights ruled the realm

Protection from shadows that crept.

A knight of dawn, a knight of light,

A knight of dusk, and a dark knight.

Four knights ruled the realm

Until one turned.

Four knights ruled the realm

For power he yearned.

Three knights ruled the realm

Killing him was the only way.

Two knights ruled the realm

There was a price to pay.

A knight of dusk and a knight of light

Each lost a brother knight.

No knights ruled the realm

Their revenge unfurled.

No knights ruled the realm

Now, shadows ruled the world.
