lyrics

To the promised land
Marching along to meet the light ahead
With the people’s cheers bright in the air
And hopes and wishes spread
We embarked onto a journey of fate
For all the people we knew
To wherever we believed we were to go

So we proved our strength, filling our hearts
With courage bottled and stored
And we bravely fought, not for ourselves
But the oaths that we had sworn
Yet for reasons that in spite of it all
We couldn’t understand
Tore the answer that we sought out of our hands

As the tears dry
And heather, ensanguined, still smolders
Only birds of prey
Know the tale of this battlefield
This forlorn sky
Unbearable weight on my shoulders
(This forlorn sky, clouded)
As you fly away
Unseen, unburdened
like smoke tossed to the wind
(You fly away into the wind)

We pushed on and on into the fog
Believing there was a way
Yet the promises we couldn’t keep
Grew bigger every day
And the truth of all the limits we held
(Despair, let down, angered)
Invited everyone’s scorn
As the earth beneath us crumbled, withered and torn
(Worthless to all)

The remembrance
So quiet and empty and broken
(Remembered you, fleeting)
All my memories
Slipping out through my fingers
(Your face and voice, with hatred)
And the feelings
Left vacant and always unspoken
(We tried, we strove, always)
And we wondered then
What meaning all of this burden was for
(What did we ever fight for?)

In my hometown
The wind only ever gets colder
Of the places there
—we must go to that place again

As the tears dry
And heather, ensanguined, still smolders
(The tears are always falling)
Only birds of prey
Know the tale of this battlefield
(The birds of prey are feeding)
This forlorn sky
Unbearable weight on my shoulders
(This forlorn sky, clouded)
As you fly away
Unseen, unburdened
like smoke tossed to the wind
(You fly away into the wind)
