Twelfth Talisman

A temple in the desert under shifting sands

One from each tribe order came from the Solomon

Only those that hold all twelve will ever rule the land

To find the final one and shift 

The stream of consequence

Is it apocryphal to find the ancient shrine

A journey of the blind

Is it impossible the relic shall be mine

A gift from the divine

No twelfth talisman

Is it myth or is it real

This burning vision in my head

No twelfth talisman

The altar on which I kneel

Could cause the fall of man

An erosion in the wall of truth

The mortar cracks under the weight of modern man

The star that once guided just falls away

As the last glimmer of light fades from the land

Is it apocryphal to find the ancient shrine

A journey of the blind

Is it impossible the relic shall be mine

A gift from the divine

No twelfth talisman

Is it myth or is it real

This burning vision in my head

No twelfth talisman

The altar on which I kneel

Could cause the fall of man

Why have you led me astray

Oracle in my mind's eye

The path you've shown is far away

What must I leave behind

Is it worth the price already paid

Talisman where do you hide

Think back to when the first attack

Had left you on your own

Decisions that you made

Then now steer you on towards home

No twelfth talisman

Is it myth or is it real

This burning vision in my head

No twelfth talisman

The altar on which I kneel

Could cause the fall of man
