A dark song, with some apocalyptic felling to it, mirrored in the sound design of the song. Building your castle, being a hero, dragging along more and more followers. Only to discover that the castle was built on sand and that all your efforts have been in vain. It’s about self-aggrandizement and self self-deception – up to the point where no one is thinking of you as a great person anymore and you can’t close your eyes to your failure anymore.


the sunset castle you’re building
will crumble to dust come dawn
the fortress of sand you believe in
will vanish, it’s powers withdrawn

your thoughts about being a hero
will bring you nothing but tears
and the ones who once have followed
will get back their life of former years

so sit down and guess if it’s worth it
consider the good and the bad
and watch your collapsing paradise
the might and the glory you had

the sunset castle you’ve been building
now crumbled to dust in the dawn
the fortress of sand you believed in
has vanished, futile to moan

sunset castle, sunset castle
crumbles to dust come dawn
sunset castle, your sunset castle
crumbles to dust come dawn
