lyrics

From the east there rides a man
A stranger to this land
He comes to till the soil
And plant new seeds within
Seeds of a new beginning
In the land where the sunset
Touches endless fields of gold
There lives a young boy on the rails
Workin’ hard on the iron roads
One hundred long years
Since his folk had left their land
Perhaps they had forgotten
The time when the Bruce and Wallace made their stand

But that old spirit
Had not gone from their hearts
For soon their forgotten brothers
called across the sea, the end of their world was to start
Fire up the guns! Start up the drums!
Through fields of green stained thick with red we run
Wastin’ away at the end of the day
Every sunrise brings a new decay
Fire up the guns! Start up the drums!
With your blood there will be peace for everyone
Pipin’ through the gore, worse than before
Did you know what you are fighting for?
From the east there rides a man
A stranger to this land
He comes to harrow up the soil, bury deep the past
And plant new seeds within
Seeds of a new beginning
