Born in a Barren Land Lyrics

3. Born in a Barren Land (12:39)
A thousand years
A thousand lifetimes away
I sit alone and I drink to memories outcast
Come so far
These memories just to escape
But in my mind the past is footsteps away

And then the young man said unto me
The dark cloud on your brow's plain to see
Said you've wandered long from where you once came
The place you call home, does it have a name?

A thousand years
A thousand lifetimes away
I sit alone and I drink to memories outcast
Come so far
These memories just to escape
I drink alone to a place I'd rather forget

This throat is dry and cracked from my silence
And my eyes lost focus from watching the past
But still I turned to him with this guidance
And told him the tale of a bitter outcast

Said

I was told of exalted bloodlines
And pasts writing futures on these palms
My mother bloomed in the greenest gardens
My father the prince among seven sons
But I'm so far from my whitefish sisters
Who call from the cold and distant streams
A fleeting glimpse at a pale horizon
A path that I'll walk alone it seems

Three fifths a man
I was bred in the dust and sand
For I was born in a barren land
They said
You’re just
Three fifths a man
I was bred in the dust and sand
For I was born in a barren land

He said just think of what's yet to come
Now that you're in a place that you choose
But how can you think of futures when you're numb?
When you face up to your demons and lose?

I grew tired of exalted bloodlines
And gouged out the future from these palms
My mother burned and my father made me
A bastard abandoned on these shores
But I still hear my whitefish sisters
Who call from the cold and distant seas
Closer now to that pale horizon
The path that I walk alone supreme

Three fifths a man
I was bred in the dust and sand
For I was born in a barren land
They said
You’re just
Three fifths a man
I was bred in the dust and sand
For I was born in a barren land

I'll drink here alone till thy kingdom come
And for those who'll listen I have these tidings
You should never forget where you're from
But it's much harder to live with the truth than hiding

Three fifths a man
I was bred in the dust and sand
For I was born in a barren land
They said
You’re just
Three fifths a man
I was bred in the dust and sand
For I was born in a barren land

Years ago
All that we know
Became the dark shadow that follows us

Cracked from below
Dream of the snow
Under the omniscient gaze of sun

Seven months old
Silver and gold
Eroded till the fairness turns to rust

Crawling across
Shores of salt
Watching all those with us turn to dust

Watching those around us turn to dust
