about

Hero or Villain? Sometimes it really depends on where you’re standing. One person’s defiance can easily be another’s insanity, and who is to say who is right and who is wrong. So beware, for either way Winter is coming...

lyrics

CHORUS:Winter is coming and with it goes the light
But I shall not go willingly into the coming night
The only fruit yet growing hangs from the gallows tree
And I fear that down this path I tread, a sapling grows for me

So roll the bones and read my fate and tell me I'm to die
Or tell me that I've come too late and that I shouldn't try
Tell me all the things that no sane man was ever meant to hear
But don't expect to rule me if the path you choose is fear

So roll the bones and read my fate, or better yet read yours
And if you're wise you'll stay inside and lock and bar your doors
I'll not be ruled by fear or fate, but live the life I choose
Let those who'd try to use me see I've nothing left to lose.

I'll stand against the darkness till they burn me for my crimes
Better flames than gallows fruit in these uncanny times
I'll light the world on fire to save us from the frost
Lest the cold should kill us all, and to Winter we be lost.
