Needs a heavy metal vibe.

So the story goes

Intro ( church bell and medieval chant )
Read the story, heard it told
In stories long ago,
In stories long ago.
Chorus
Long ago, long ago
When good men sold their souls.
Long, ago, long ago
Or so the story goes.
Verse
Was a time of wickedness
Evil ruled the world,
They took the word of wise men.
Evil ruled the world.
Verse
Was sorcery and magic.
Wizards in black robes.
Stole by sleight of hand.
Treasures of fool’s gold.
Chorus
Long ago, long ago
When good men sold their souls.
Long ago, long ago
Or so the story goes.
Verse
Was a time of deception.
Satan ruled the land.
While the fools all slept.
Satan ruled the land.
Verse
Was a time of godliness.
Unshaken faith in god,
They took the word as written.
Unshaken faith in god.
Bridge
The Holy Grail,
A truth or lie,
An awful waste
Of good men’s lives.
Chorus
Long ago, long ago
When good men sold their souls.
Long ago, long ago
Or so the story goes.
Tag
When good men, good men
When good men sold their souls.

Yep heavy metal all the way. but how about more like the Meat loaf sounds my fear would be that the great lyrics would be drowned out by electric guitars and lost in the wind to a screaming vocalist. this song has a story and needs to be listened to.

Could be on the trippy side like Pink Floyd or Zeppelin’s In The Light.

I really want this to have some sort of clever twist….. but it’s just not coming to me.
