​Temple Of The King

This song is by Angel Dust and appears on the compilation Holy Dio (1999).

One day in the year of the fox
Came a time remembered well
When the strong young man of the rising sun
Heard the tolling of a great black bell

One day in the year of the fox
When the bell began to ring
Meant the time had come
For one to go to the temple of the king

There in the middle of the circle he stands
Searching, seeking
With just one touch of his trembling hand
The answer will be found

Daylight waits while the old man sings
Heaven help me
And like the rush of a thousand wings
It shines upon the one and the day had just begun

One day in the year of the fox
Came a time remembered well
When the strong young man of the rising sun
Heard the tolling of the great black bell

One day in the year of the fox
When the bell began to ring
It meant the time had come
For one to go to the temple of the king

Far from the circle at the edge of the world
He's hoping, wondering
Thinking back from the stories he's heard
Of what he's going to see

There in middle of the circle it lies
Heaven help me
Then all could see by the shine in his eyes
He's sworn, to the temple of the king

Far from the circle at the edge of the world
He's hoping, wondering
Thinking back from the stories he's heard
Of what he's going to see

There in middle of the circle it lies
Heaven help me
Then all could see by the shine in his eyes
He's sworn, to the temple of the king

One day in the year of the fox
Came a time remembered well
When the strong young man of the rising sun
Heard the tolling of the great black bell

One day in the year of the fox
When the bell began to ring
It meant the time had come
For one to go to the temple of the king
