Knight's Lament country as flag
A Knight's Life is Duty
A Knight's Life is Honor
Kindness and Service
Chivalry and War
Everything that he lives for

Mission is finished
Nothing more to do
Peace and Happiness
Have come to you
Nothing more a Knight to do

Time to find a new mission
The need is gone
This Knight knows his duty
Wonder on
The need is gone

Family and friends
Would be very nice
I have thought about it
Once or twice
No good a heart of ice

Harden my heart
Close my eye
It is hard
I've got to try
Time to say goodbye
