The fifth song on Rainbowlands, a story of a folk-hero from a different age.


I will bury my hands in the soil
Pulling out the product of my toil
As the bugles of the lords resound
I won‘t let them take me down

I‘ll proudly stand and raise my hands
Here I will stay until it rains
Rains on my grave

I will never bow to the god‘s of gold
I won‘t let my sons be bought and sold
As the lords ride in to take us all
I will fight them ‘til I fall

I will not rest at their behest
Until the day I hear the rain
Rain on my grave

I call upon the moon and sun
To hide away and let it rain
Rain on my grave


from Rainbowlands, released July 13, 2011
