(©Blind Guardian 1992)

Out in the distance
There's so much gold
The treasure that I've found
Is more than enough
Far to be the hill we've to go
Over the mountain and seas

To the old hill
Where the old dragon sleeps
Blind in the dark dungeon's night
So God please take me away from here
And Gollum shows the way right out
I'm alive

The dying dragon brought trouble and pain
And horror to the halls of stone
I'll take the mighty stone
And leave the dwarves behind
Ice and fire and forest we passed
And horror in the halls of stone

Trolls in the dark
The dawn took them all
Caught in the wood
By the wooden kings' men
But now I'm alone
'Cause I've made up my mind

By the spell of gold
The king under the mountain
Will risk the great war
Oh what a fool
He's losing control
So I am trying to find a way

Blind in the dark dungeon's night
Then darkness comes from the northern side
And Thorin clears his mind
