The heroes are all dead.
The grounds they walked on run in red.
They fought for the 'right', yet they died,
And the “evil” still survives.

Sir Galahad, Sir Thomas, Lancelot of the Lake,
All the good of yesterday could not escape their fate,
Could not escape their fate.

But where are the deeds for which they fell?
Have they stood the test of time? Or do they burn in hell?

Now, you're one of the minions, not one of the mighty,
And the good eludes society.
And if you should fail on your quest for the "Grail",
Will the flag fly the half-staff for thee?
Or will they notice your loss over tea?
-And remark at the gap, casually.

But where are the deeds, for which you'll fall?
Will they find their place in time? Well --
Only time will tell-- only time will tell.
Ooohhh, ooohhh...
