about

The lyrics of this track are inspired by the W.B. Yeats poem The Stolen Child.

lyrics

Amid the rocky highlands and a blue highland lake
Upon a leafy island the flapping herons wake
There the fairies dance round and round their boiling vats
Mingling hands and glances the child's in a trance

Come away human child
To the waters and the wild
With a fairy hand in hand
From a world you can't understand

In the moonlight the fairies tempt the child
Closer and closer calling him into the wild
Telling the child of this world
Telling the child of the horrors it holds

Come away human child
To the waters and the wild
With a fairy hand in hand
From a world you can't understand

The child's heart is torn
His family won't let him leave his home
But how could they know
Of the life the wild holds

Now the child goes deep into the wild
But he couldn't know the fairies saved his soul
From a weeping world he could not understand
From a weeping world that rots the souls of man

Come away human child
To the waters and the wild
With a fairy hand in hand
From a world you can't understand
