"Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son" as written by and Stephen Percy Harris....
Here they stand brothers them all
All the sons divided they'd fall
Here await the birth of the son
The seventh, the heavenly, the chosen one

Here the birth from an unbroken line
Born the healer the seventh, his time
Unknowingly blessed and as his life unfolds
Slowly unveiling the power he holds

Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son

Then they watch the progress he makes
The Good and the Evil which path will he take
Both of them trying to manipulate
The use of his powers before it's too late

Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son

Today is born the seventh one
Born of woman the seventh son
And he in turn of a seventh son
He has the power to heal
He has the gift of the second sight
He is the chosen one
So it shall be written
So it shall be done

    General CommentThis entire album, arguably, is based on seventh son, a novel by orson scott card. why i say arguably is because some people claim that only tracks 5 through 8 are based on the album. seventh son is actually the first book in a seires of four. The first four or so tracks have direct references to the first two books which focus mostly on the childhood of the seventh son of a seventh son. Tracks 6-8 begin referencing when the boy stops learning and begins teaching in a sense. This song actually summerizes the majority of the series, The birth obviously and the development of his powers "Then they watch the progress he makes
    The Good and the Evil which path will he take"

    General CommentThe whole album is based off of the book series Tales of Alvin Make by Orson Scott Card where the main character is a seventh son of a seventh son. Amazing book series the album tells the full story of the first few books

    General CommentAwesome song, though it sounds like it was written with Ronnie James Dio's voice in mind. Dio is, in my view, the only metal vocalist better than Bruce Dickinson.

    General CommentWhat are you people thinking not commenting on this. This song is a classe apart. It's perfection! only Rainbow's Stargazer is better.

    -my 50 cents.

    Song is about the seventh son of the seventh son ;)

    General CommentThis album is a concept album. This song, moonchild, infinite dreams, the prophecy, can i play with madness, and the clairvoyant are all telling one story about one who can see the future.
