SHADOWLAND

SHADOWLAND

We came from the north and we came from the highlands.
We lived for our brothers and honoured our gods.
Travelled the world now home is an island.
Fianna our family and blood is our bond.

- - - - - -
chorus
Here in the land of shadows, here in this Shadowland
Here in the land of shadows, here in the Shadowlands.
- - - - - -

The home that we knew is home now no longer.
Its blasted and bleached by the long winter sun.
The days here are broken the light turns to darkness.
This island is not where we used to belong.

- - - - - -
(chorus)
- - - - - -

The sun will cast light on un-fam-iliar mountains.
Our shadows will fall upon earth that is new.
New Orkneyjar waits we will breath life upon it,
And walk upon land that the Gods alone knew.

- - - - - -
(chorus)
- - - - - -

So what is a home? Is it water and soil?
Can land or possessions bring meaning or faith?
Our home it will always be where we are gathered,
Our Home is Fianna no matter the place.

(Chorus x2 to end.)
