(Snyder/Savarino/Simches/Turner)

lyrics

Some 700 steps up to the summit
Some 700 steps if you can climb it
Atop, Acröenon
Afyonkarahisar

It’s a testament to reach the summit
You’re a soldier if you can climb it
Stones white, from below
But what can fools who see from afar know

You can build castles in the sky
So lovely on high
Yes you can
So high up and far from ground
So many enemies to crush down
Yes you can

Locked inside is something ecstatic
Instinct bides you to protect
Dark, but I will defend
It to the death

Battle cry, hymn of the solemn
Oh the glory in a flower
Early June, with poppies
In full bloom

You can build castles in the sky
So lovely on high
Yes you can
So high up and far from ground
So many enemies to crush down
Yes you can
