Turisas

Turisas - Miklagard Overture

rate me

Long have I drifted without a course

A rudderless ship I have sailed

The Nile just keeps flowing without a source

Maybe all the seekers just failed?

To Holmgard and beyond

In search of a bond

Far from home I've come

But the road has just begun

Breathing history

Veiled in mystery

The sublime

The greatest of our time

Tsargrad!

"Come with us to the south

Write your name on our roll"

I was told;

Konstantinopolis

Sui generis

The saints and emperors

Of bygone centuries

The man-made birds in their trees

Out load their paean rings

Immortality!

In astonishing colours the East meets the West

The hill-banks arise in their green

In wonder I sit on my empty chest

As we glide down the strait in between

To Holmgard and beyond

In search of a bond

Distant church bells toll

For their god they chant and troll

Breathing history

Veiled in mystery

The sublime

The greatest of our time

Tsargrad!

The Norwegian of rank

In the court of The Prince

I was convinced

Konstantinopolis

Ten gates to eternity

Seen all for centuries

Your inconquerable walls

Your temples and your halls

See all, hear all, know it all

My sun rose in the North and now sets in the South

The Golden Horn lives up to its name

From tower to tower a chain guards its mouth

Unbreakable, they claim

To Holmgard and beyond

In a search of a bond

Adventures lie ahead

Many knots lie unravelled on my thread

Breathing history

Veiled in mystery

The sublime

The greatest of our time

Tsargrad!

Konstantinopolis

Queen of the cities

Your welcoming smile

Made all worthwhile

The sweat and the pain

Bathing in gold

Endless rooftops unfold

The sun sets for a while just to rise again

Great walls

Great halls

Greatest of all, Miklagard
