about

Based on the story, The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King.
King wrote this story for his daughter so that she would have something to read that wouldn't totally scare the crap out of her. It also happens to be one of my favorites by King. The main plot is this:

The Eyes of the Dragon is a tale of chivalry and heroes that could easily fit with the tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The novel follows the story of Flagg, the King's magician, and his plan to bring ruin to the kingdom of Delain. Flagg kills the King and frames his heir, Peter, with the murder. After Peter is put in jail, Flagg runs the kingdom behind the new, weak king, Thomas. However, Flagg has underestimated Peter's determination to clear his name and save his kingdom. The Eyes of the Dragon is a tale of deceit and honor that will surprise and please even the most dedicated King fan.

lyrics

It starts off with a hit to the face
then the bruise starts to grow
then the blood down my lips
and the crack to the bone
and i didn’t back down
cuz i knew i was right
but the jury was still out
and you had made up your minds

now you’e the one who’s in charge
and i’m the one who’s gotta go
you’re the puppet on the strings
but i won’t even see the show
cuz i’m headed to my cell
with my eyes to the ground
you were laughin’ as i left
i was silence, all around

if you think that i’m out of the game
then you don’t know me
all your hate won’t hold me down
all your bullets they won’t slow me

i’m never gonna give up
i’m never gonna break
i’m not the fool i used to be
i’ve learned from my mistakes
from the bottom of the ocean
or the high towers i will be
the eyes of the dragon
they’ll be the last thing you’ll see

by the climax i’ll be hangin’ from a thread
up so far from the ground
but i will make my escape
and you’ll be comin’ around
and i doubt that you’ve guessed
that i would make it this far
now you’re the fool i once was
and i’m the shining star
if it’s war that you want
then it’s war that you’ll get
retrace all our steps
remember proper etiquette
the last thing you’ll see
will be my face
and the eyes burning through
see you suffer in disgrace

if you think that i’m out of the game
then you don’t know me
all your hate won’t hold me down
all your bullets they won’t slow me

i’m never gonna give up
i’m never gonna break
i’m not the fool i used to be
i’ve learned from my mistakes
from the bottom of the ocean
or the high towers i will be
the eyes of the dragon
they’ll be the last thing you’ll see

i’m never gonna give up
i’m never gonna break
i’m not the fool i used to be
i’ve learned from my mistakes
from the bottom of the ocean
or the high towers i will be
the eyes of the dragon
they’ll be the last thing you’ll see
the last thing you’ll see
the last thing you’ll see
