The Sachem's Tales Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Midewiwin Lodge (2:34)
Instrumental
2. To the Great Salt Water (8:48)
I will turn my eyes up to the stars
Every night that we are apart
For one day they will lead you
They will lead you back to me

Great Spirit watch over our home
Until the day when I return
To the land where we were born
On the shores of the Great Salt Water

I will breathe deeply the western wind
That once also passed over you
And when the night falls
I'll sing of a brighter morrow

Great Spirit watch over our home
Until the day when I return
To the land where we were born
On the shores of the Great Salt Water

What shall I tell our children?
Tell them our story
Tell them who they are
Far beyond the mountains
Where wild-men roam
Over the raging river’s foam
Follow the Whiteshell west

Great Spirit watch over our home
Until the day when I return
To the land where we were born
On the shores of the Great Salt Water
3. The Wolves Fell Quiet (7:22)
Beyond the taiga in frozen hemlock groves
By lakeside fires, red halos in the snow
The ancient ones dance

The creatures of the night replied in kind
Their howls rising up through canyons
And into the night

In throes and wails they cast their plight
Summoning the one whose heart is ice
Who ever starves but never dies

The creatures of the night replied in kind
Their howls rising up through canyons
And into the night

At last a great shadow rose up from the flame
And turned its fiery gaze upon me
A great pall fell across the land
And I remembered their cry
The cry of the wolves
Their cry
4. Halle Ravine (4:04)
I sing to the stars
Closing my eyes
Rain on my skin
Memories fade
I cannot rest
Whisper your name
I must go on
5. Against the Northern Wind (7:16)
Your face is gaunt (The falling snow)
Your skin is pale (Clouds my sight)
Your arms are slender (The howling winds)
Your body frail (Pierce the night)

Who are you to defy?
Who are you to stay?

I sent the frost (to chill my bones)
And the gale (to whip my clothes)
I sent the ice (to freeze my hands)
But still you will not leave this land

When all else has withered
When all else has died
You alone, maiden of the forest,
Stand against the northern wind
6. A Seventh Age of Fire (9:22)
We have taught you all that we know
We have given everything we own
(Hear in our silence that we are at peace
Our mantle passed to you)

The water drum will sound again
Its voice strong through the ages

Be brave and you will be protected
Be wise and you will be rewarded
(Hear in our silence that we are at peace
Our mantle passed to you)

Light again the ancient flame
Lead our people back home

You were the child with light in his eyes
You are the one who must follow the path

Calling my people from days long ago
Finally awaken to share what you know
Ages of slumber have taken your voice
Come to our aid in this perilous choice

When all of our fields are fallow
When all of our waters have fouled
Light the torch of the seventh age
7. The Witching Meadow (3:25)
Instrumental
