"I Walk To My Own Song" as written by and Timo Tapio Tolkki....
I'm walking the streets and I hear what you say
Advising me telling me how to play
I know your name it's called Mr. Mean
One thing I've learned, you don't know beans

High I fly
I touch the sky
Far above the frozen minds
You can't kill my dreams
You can't kill my spirit
I was born to be free

I walk to my own song
Every day the power grows stronger in me
I walk to my own song
Head up proud
I'm the master of my own destiny

You think you know what is better for me
Holding me lectures of how I should be
Shrugging my shoulders I leave you behind
Anyway I look at it...you are blind

    Ha ha those lines sound so childish. Like a 5 year old trying to rebel against his father.

    General CommentThis song is about independence, knowing that you have the right to do what you want. It's like Rebel.

    General CommentThis song is very special to me, because it can always make me smile and managed to lift me out of a deep and very dark depression single-handedly. Thank you Stratovarius ^^

    General CommentI think the first four lines had a cheap translator!

    But yeah, it's basically saying 'I know you're telling me what to do, but I am free now and there's nothing you can do!"

    This song is really uplifting - the beat as well as the lyrics.
