I was made in darkest night
Of chalky ash and children's flight
I do not think you know what you behold
I was made of aching hurt
Of fairytales and bloody dirt
I hope you do exactly as youre told.

Siegfried and St George
Potter, Baggins, Beowulf
Were tempered in my forge
So I say to you and yours

All caught fire in the ivory tower
in the marble arches
and the dust and darkness
and i have you on my mind

Once a mighty tree was grown
For you to know all that is known
I hope you hear exactly what i say
And by your sword a branch came down
And where the blood fell to the ground
It is my cradle and there i must stay

And should ever you return
Well i must confess my story to be true
You will be burned
So I hope that you have learnt

All caught fire in the ivory tower
in the marble arches
in the dust and darkness
and all caught fire in the ivory tower
and i have you on my mind
youre on my mind
you're on my mind.
