lyrics

Landtaker

Oh, these sounds of life - unheard in our world long lost
Beauty and majesty - to withstand heat and bitter frost

Our havens flourish, but the unknown locks us in
With God by our side may our new lives now begin
We create, we take, we burn all with our strongest men
We multiply and subdue every creature to walk these lands

Plants with enthralling scent
Trees that strangely bend
Birds that sing their song
And the wild man speaks his unknown tongue

I dream

Here is no place of disaffection
Time before and time after
In a dim light.

Investing form of lucid stillness
Turning shadows into transient beauty

Desiccation of the world of sense
Evacuation of the world of fancy

Inoperancy of the world of spirit

I awaken

It is the devil who has deceived me
I will be thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur
where the beast and the false prophet are
I will be tormented day and night forever and ever

One with nature, one with plants, trees and birds
The wisdom of old. Prepared for what is to come
I cannot but stare and listen in awe to these strange men
But I am alone

My longings grow... NO! My dreams confuse me
This wild man of these ancient woods - A devil! - Devoid of any good!
They come and stare in awe at our mighty forts
When their spears and arrows find no aim but steadfast walls

Oh, unheard of before in these sounds of age-old lore
Beauty and majesty - to withstand primitive infancy

Our havens flourish and the unknown’s free of sin
This is our home now and widespread is God’s kin
We create, we take, we take with our strongest men
We enforce God’s will for he is the ruler of all lands

Yet my dreams return and godless they may seem
But I see good when the wild men fish their streams
When they sing their songs, and teach a child to carve a bone
Is this the word of God in wilderness set in stone?
