Lyrics

A weary traveler upon days of journey travels across the forest's edge
Sweat breaks his brow and like a salt wound continues to scar his flesh
Strips himself of adventure's garments and eyes the great castles beyond
He slowly ascends the sun brazen hillside whistling the death merchant's song

Infinite iron gates allow no entrance for this mortal man
He bitterly refuses to let go and blood paints the pain upon his hands
Relative artistry on the dungeon stone as it crumbles with age
As the era must become ashes and dust there's a skeleton of a fool who remained

His step recedes from the sculpture of bones
One before him who attempted to face the unknown
Beyond the grim artwork of a priceless mold
This masterpiece has already been sold

Trapped in his own time
He's just medieval man and you know what he wants
But this is not your time
Try to understand the gates of the Renaissance

A man unsheathes a form of suicide escape
His lifeline severed reveals a final stain
This world leaving the shell of a dream broken
With his fatal wound the infinite gates open

Trapped in his own time
He's just medieval man and you know what he wants
But this is not your time
Try to understand the gates of the Renaissance
Trapped in his own time, yeah
Trapped in his own time
