Overhead the star light masses,you hear a noise,the night wind passes

Across the land,the shadows dance,out of the darkness you hear i know

The night itself surrounds you,beyond the daylight boundary found you,with the lights display about you

They are taking you back home;through the northern lights have romanced you

The lights themselves in wisdom have enhanced you

You want to live alone,become an arctic nomad and wonder on your own

The barren tundra draws you;the land itself will feed you,to know of your isolation,it draws you across the northern land.

To stand it is against its nature making you king in all you command

The winds they howl around you,the snowdrifts pile around you

They muffle the sound of the arctic as beneath the snow,you lay

The northern lights display their colors but you yourself will not discover for death itself has taken you by the boundray of the day

The arctic night has taken,death itself has put you on display

Your frozen body lay out there upon its landscape

Taken all you're wanting and have them thrown away,you will do your ever wandering in the northern lights display
