about

A rather theatrical track about a soldier (probably a viking ) leaving for war. Follows the album's theme of choice.

Mike Brown guest stars on bass on this track! This guy is unbelievable! What an honor to have him with us.

lyrics

As thoughts of dismal deeds,
Race rapidly through me,
I close my eyes;
yours open wide.

My heart does pound, my pulse doth race,
The beads of sweat drip from my face,
Your heart next to mine is placed,
Our bodies writhe in passion's embrace

Know I not if you feel the same,
But a night as this would surely tame,
The burning of the beast inside.

Feel my heart, beat so strong,
Feel my heart, where we belong

I ride today,
Leaving your side for the first time,
Heart race away,
I say goodbye with a tear in my eye

On a ship to foreign shores,
I carve your name in the seat at my side,
The drum beats away,
And in the distance a fading coast line

Feel my heart, beat so strong,
Feel my heart, where we belong

I look to the sky,
I see my breath grey in the moonlight,
Then I close my eyes,
And I think of you sitting by the fireside

I awake to see the sun,
Visions of you have already begun,
Hear the horn of the ancients call,
The shore is sighted, the time has come

Feel my heart, beat so strong,
Feel my heart, where we belong

With my hand on my axe,
I disembark and know I may not comeback,
Step into the snow,
And with a battlecry, "Onward I Go!"

Feel my heart, beat so strong,
Feel my heart, where we belong

Bless my heart,
Bless my soul,
Bless my sword,
For onward I go!

Feel my heart, beat so strong,
Feel my heart, where we belong

That night I dreamt as I recall,
I was struck (soundly) and to the ground I did fall,
Alone in the black the riders came,
On horses hooves alight with flame

When I awoke I was clutching my blade,
Right or wrong, my choice has been made,
Now I know just what I must do,
End this war so that I might see you

And while you're home thinking of me,
I head into battle across the sea

We march onward,
Into battle we ride

At last I meet my foe,
And this journey of woe,
Will finally end,
When you die my friend...

Tonight

Feel my heart, beat so strong,
Feel my heart, where we belong

I'm finally coming home,
To see you tonight,
I'm finally coming home,
Going to make things right

For I am coming home tonight!
