    "When the Castles Fell Like Rain"
    Words and Music by Daniel J. Paolini

    They donned their soot-stained armor when they heard the call,
    Their kingdom needed them again.
    Above the dragon roared and terror filled the air,
    The fire flowing from his grin.
    Their banners flying as they raced atop their steeds,
    To fight the dragon in the sky.
    They scaled the tower walls the way they had been trained,
    To stare the dragon in the eye.

    Then the castles fell like rain,
    And the princess screamed in pain;
    For the dragon's evil flights,
    Tried to crush her kingdom's knights.
    As the emerald lady cried,
    For her knights still left inside;
    All her subjects said "be strong",
    Our knights' spirit still lives on,
    Though the castles fell like rain.

    And as the king walked through the smoking castle ruins,
    He thought he heard the minstrel's sound.
    The words he hadn't heard in all those many years,
    Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground.

    When the castles fell like rain,
    And the princess screamed in pain;
    For the dragon had that day,
    Tried to steal their dreams away.
    As the emerald lady cried,
    For her knights still left inside;
    All her subjects said "be strong",
    Our knights' spirit still lives on,
    Though the castles fell like rain.

    All her subjects said "we're strong",
    Our knights' spirit still lives on.
