"Umber Tower" is track six on the Hungry Lights studio album "The Awry Ascent." Remember that this is a summary, not the entire story! It is 1-10% of what is actually going on—just the skeleton.

StoryEdit

In this chapter, Prill arrives at a mysterious observatory called, "Umber Tower." There is supposedly a mystic who lives at the top and who can give Prill the coordinates to Fothcrah's lair. There is no direct way inside, so he eventually makes his way underground into a catacomb, is harassed by some mysterious cavern-dwelling creatures, and has an epiphany about himself as a person.

LyricsEdit

An umber tower is quiet and looming before me

And I once used nothingness to fill that void

Then the sky must thrown a gauntlet

To detour me from the center I knew

-And I've never been wrong


The winds had changed beyond your shore

Now a mattered mane that muffles the lion's roar


Such a place would leave a sour, familiar taste upon my tongue

How I trembled at the knees!


Underneath a mask, in the gully I hie

And I sank much deeper than I had prepared for

Tailing shades coalesced and converged on the walls

When I turned, they were nothing!

No, nothing at all!


O' such beguiling was their boisterous game!

My own shadow... now a faceless no one


Such a place would leave a sour, familiar taste upon my tongue

How I trembled at the knees!


At sudden, from inside me

I felt a rapid disassemble

And all around had turned to gloom

Still, all around was calm

And I raised my fist!

But there was no confrontation

Just a question had they asked

And with the comfort, I gave in


An umber tower was quiet and looming before me

So I used its gallantry to fill that void

Truly, I had embraced that delusion and glory

So I guess I don't know what I knew after all


Such a place would leave a sour, familiar taste upon my tongue

How I trembled at the knees!
