Song Description

A story based in mideveall times of a soldier who guards the queen while she enjoys life and never notices or thanks the person responsible for her safety and well being. He ends the song pointing out that once he is gone she will feel the desperation he feels.

Story Behind the Song

Unrequited love, a man taking care of someone who takes him for granted.

Lyrics

Desperation Isolation, too many complications
just a foolhardy troubadour
ever faithful to the queen
A loyalty that knows no boundaries makes you weak, makes you strong
as you stuggle for existance
among the jesters and the vagabonds
they get to share the spoils of all my blind faith deeds
but its so hard to compete
when you are just a soldier from the street oh yeah......

Theres a soft spot in every soldiers heart that longs for a chance at love
but the Desperation and the Isolation fits just like a glove
Still, I dawn my armor and fight another day, while chosen ones line up to take the place
I'll never have, never have

Princesses dream in color
their protector in black and white
one sleeps oh so soundly while the other
watches the night
she knows of my existance, but she will never see
the scars beneath the armor
earned to keep her free, but not for me

Desperation Isolation
so many complications
still I dawn my armor
and fight another day
I fight to keep the wolves at bay
so you can enjoy the games you play
with softer men who turn and run
to the next featherbed that comes along
oh yeah

Desperation Isolation, so many complications
perhaps you will feel them too
when I have succuumbed to the feud
and your jestors have all moved on
and there is no one left to carry on
to take care of you
to take care of you
to take care of you
