underground treachery

Vault

Tunnel along, this lamp's still glowing
The questions were wrong, no way of knowing
How can we tell right from wrong?
How can we tell right from wrong?
When all along, we were cheated on.

Tunnel along, we must keep trying
The King is dead, the old world dying
We must race against time
We must race against time
The honour is mine to commit this crime.

Tunnel along, we'll make it somehow
The vault is ahead, we cannot rest now
We must fight to stay alive
We must fight to stay alive
We must strive, so we may thrive.

The treasure had gone, we had been betrayed
They knew of the crown, and the plans that we had made
Now the traitor's dead and gone
Now the traitor's dead and gone
But we must stay strong and tunnel on.
