Statues And Stories Lyrics

Margaret: What happened here? Well let's see...

On a central square,
In the city of the sun Rosa Palace
It was high and handsome
Gleaming like the crown of a king.

Clara: Where would that be? Where is that?

Margaret: In the tower,
A warning bell would ring.

Clara: What kind of warning?

Clara: I'd bet she'd loose her bet!
