The Grander Voyage Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Pale Flames on the Horizon (2:18)
Gaze into the darkness
From this shadowy abode
A flame far out in the void
A glimpse of the beyond
Like an old awakening sentience

Some fragment of eternity
Altering all perspectives of the world known
An elusive meaning
Deeper than everything you had once believed in

From a tired slumber
something inside awoke
As pale flames dance high,
Leading you onwards
To find the hidden origins
On the brim of the sky

By thunder awake
Let lightning lead
To the highest peak,
Into the deepest precipices
I am the rising tide
The approaching storm
The avalanche
I am the voyage grand
2. Hinterlands (7:51)
Through the winding maze of hollow whispers
My path lies narrow but shining to me clear
A stark existence been trapped for endless ages
Yet through my visions I’ve travelled everywhere
I’ve travelled everywhere

Come dare the night my kindred
Come shed these fears of old
All restless souls who dreamt to wander freely
To navigate the oceans by radiant stars aligned
Where long lost gods speak through raging winds
To us…

On the banks of the everflow
I drank this earthen stream
Held secret from the blinded
Who never dared this dream

We rose where summers come to die
The heart of winter, the frozen hinterlands
We stem from shadows where mournful choirs sing
Our barren hinterlands, where day and night are kin
Entwined…

From beyond where all roads end
Where the coldest of rivers have their wells
I stand ablaze in my darkness
As I head into the night absolute

I come from where nights lasting longer
Where the frost is a heartbeat away
Where the glory of summer is fleeting
Where the fire inside is what saves you
From decay…

Pray the frost of my birthright won’t find you
I stand vigilant and true to my course
The nature’s my only superior
Blood is what nourishes all that must grow

Through the winding maze of hollow whispers
My path lies narrow but shining to me clear
A stark existence been trapped for endless ages
Yet through my visions, I have travelled everywhere

We rose where summers come to die
The heart of winter, the frozen hinterlands
We stem from shadows, where mournful choirs sing
Our barren hinterlands, where day and night are kin
Entwined
3. Dance of the Eternals (2:01)
Instrumental
4. Windwards (6:45)
The fire seemed forgotten
Though embers always glowed
As winds sang my name
I’ve always felt I had to go

Where elders walked before me
Beyond the realm of snow
To a place my heart is longing
I was born a windward soul

Beyond lands of shadows
To where the rivers meet raging seas
Beyond the trees and meadows
The vast has called for me

Windward spirit
Imperial state of mind
The wayward walker
Leaving the grasp of time

Windward spirits
Above the seas and fields
The wayward walkers
Ferocious we leave

Wanderlust
Waywards, windwards
Forever onwards

To leave what’s familiar
Where dust has set on idle stone
Go and find your ocean
In the black unknown

Windward spirit
Imperial state of mind
The wayward walker
Leaving the grasp of time

Windward spirits
Above the seas and fields
The wayward walkers
Ferocious we leave

Come feel what they couldn’t feel
And see what they couldn’t see
Old truths are only beliefs
Become what they could never be

So rise from every fall
Facing the wind, my wayward one
Be true, scarred and strong
I know your journey’s just begun

My windward one
5. Pillars of the Sky (7:20)
When traversing the endless
In search for the hidden, glorious heights
And the meaning concealed
The passage begins without light

And the search will estrange you
Yearning to learn what’s hidden by lore
How this journey will change you
A first step that’s followed by countless of more

When bewildered yet lucid
Only as lost you can see
Towering as you behold them
Great distant giants, the ancient creed

And this search will estrange you
Yearning to learn the wisdom of yore
How this journey will change you
Up every mountain, along every shore

And one day you shall find
The pillars of the sky

Those that venture through the night
How they burn, with purpose and resolve
The darkest of the dark, the brightest of bright
With glorious flames they ride

In a world lost to treason
Shapes of the greater, that dared and who died
Grand giants overlooking the vast never ending
The pillars of the sky
At their feet lie the masses
Those like us, who craved to arise
As they fell all before them
Triumph or death for the pillars of the sky

Past the edge of the forest
Far beyond the emerald fields
Where storms rage unhindered
And free

Forever they stand
The pillars of the sky
6. The Silvan Shrine (8:19)
Distant apparitions
Panacea divine
Perils and sorrows
My all for a sight

In pursuit of the light
Or phantasms in vain
Uneven my course
But certain the pain

All of those nights and days
Doubt as my sole consort
Infinite long my journey
We walk alone

Summers and winters pass
through snow and across the seas,
Endless the path I wander
To the silvan shrine

Cede did all my anger
Cede did all my hurt
Cede did all desire
In wood, in dirt

As stillness fell again
And silence spoke anew
Echoes of truths
From eons ago

In the silvan arms I rose
With earth as my throne
Past the woodland spires
Towards the sky

Traversing the endless
I find myself renewed
In dark ancient waters
My reflection so true

The grander perspective
A cathedral of leaves
A deeper sense of purpose
And to offer my dream

All of those nights and days
Carving my voyage grand
Infinite long my journey
I walk alone

Summers and winters pass
Through snow and across the seas
Endless the path I wander
To the silvan shrine

I march on
7. Emerald Crossroads (7:16)
Deep breaths of forever
Sweet scent of emerald ripe
Whispers, islands in silence
In silvan arms we come back to life

We wished for this darkness
We wished for the night to go on (forever)
To cover the scars
Shadows have all hurt undone

I know I’ll find a way
And I know I’ll find a way (home)

Cold the raging winds are weeping
Down ruins of victories past
So slow the river of life
Of triumphs all memories so vague

I wish for the wisdom
I wish I could finally see (afar)
Beyond all horizons
And all that’s been hidden from me

I know I’ll find a way
And I know I’ll find a way (home)
We will find a way
And we will find a way
Away…

With ardor and resolve
We delve into the vast unknown
Onwards into the night
We keep our blazing fires high

The proudly few departed
Journeymen in realms uncharted
Onwards into the night
Resiliant we rose from the silvan shrine

And we march home
