lyrics

Nick is led into a room
(Opulent, decadent, heavy with doom)
By the fire, a Mage in a chair
(An unsettling grin, a predatory air)
Nick finds it hard to breathe, like he’s trapped in a tomb
Only light from the fire flickers in the gloom
The Mage motions to Nick, hands him a glass of wine
Says “I’m glad that you’re here, but you sure took your time

Because Nick, we have much to discuss.”

Nick looks away, says “You must be mistaken
I’m only a simple scholar from the North”
His host laughs, like nails dragging on glass
Says “You surely can’t think I’m as foolish as that
Your appearance in Bristol was noted
Not only by me but by the King’s Right Hand
It’s so fortunate, friend, that we got to you first
For I know that you’ll want to be part of our plan

I know that you that were there, twenty years ago
When we opened this world to another
And I know that you fled like a rat
While the King’s loyal army cut down all our brothers
And I know that you made a life for yourself
Growing in knowledge but not in power
And I know our indelible call
Is what finally drew you from your ivory tower”

Nick’s hands start to shake at the Mage’s words
He thought he had better hid his past
The Mage, smiles, and forges ahead
Says “This time we have all we need for a strike back
A young mage of incredible will
And a black tome recovered of old
With our army we are almost poised to take control

So I ask that you pledge yourself to us
The Novis, like you did twenty years ago
And our masters will reward your service
With powers beyond anything that you know
What will it be, Nick?
Will you be crowned as one of the powerful few?
To be one of the chosen elite
In a world that the Others shall reforge anew

What will it be, Nick?
Will you ascend with me?
What will it be?
