Caradìlis' Songs

The Exile’s Lament



Chorus:
I am running for my life,
I am running to survive,
And I hope I find a haven,
In the universe ahead.


I remember the bombs
When they rained from the sky,
And I’m leaving behind,
Where forever you will lie.

Chorus

I remember the fires,
They devoured the land,
For the heat has been rising,
Through man’s own hand.

Chorus

I remember the poison,
In the water and air,
And the governments were certain,
That their war was fair.

Chorus

I remember diseases,
They ravaged the towns,
Driving young and old,
Six feet under the grounds.


Chorus

I remember the hunger,
When the food got rare,
For the fields and the meadows,
Had a long time been bare.

Chorus

I remember the water,
It rose with the heat,
Drowning all those who were left,
And flooding every street.

Chorus

I’m the last of my kind,
My ship sails into space,
For I can’t stay any longer,
I must leave this place.

Chorus

Global warming and wars,
Brought disaster and dread,
While we stood there in denial,
And now the Earth is dead.

Chorus

Now without any aim,
I’m without a place to be,
I can never return,
For the Earth has exiled me.

Now that I finally have a sheet music program at my disposal, I thought I'd write these down in something more legible than pencil scribbles... I wrote this around 7 years ago, but the message doesn't really age, so I see no reason for not sharing it...



Chorus:
There’s a rumour in town,
They say you’ll come back home,
But I fear much has changed,
Since you walked out the door.

1.
Sister died in a fire,
That burnt down the church,
Mother died in the night,
When the bomb hit the house.
There is no more home,
To return to anymore.

2.
And our father has died,
By your side in the war,
You return to our home,
Without him, all alone,
But there’s no more home,
To return to anymore.

3.
Now we are on our own,
Back at home, all alone,
Brother think, what has war,
Lead us to, you must know,
That there’s no more home,
To return to anymore.

Fine:
There is no more home,
to return to now.

The images aren't working for me... :s
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

I don't think the image will work for anyone - if I copy the URL directly into my browser, I get back something called removed.png, which is what's actually being displayed.
