"Tale Of Revenge" as written by and Markus Aleksi/maeenpaeae Toivonen....
He bears a tale so gloom and tragic never to be known
Into darkness now fallen, into hatred now grown
Like stillborn child drifting in the silent seas
Of blood, crushing all his dreams
No castle walls can hold the fury in his eyes
Devotion for death, now controls his life
No gold or silver can bring him consolation
Only one thing is left inside him, the desire of revenge

One light so cold and pale, sleeping quietly all alone
One life so cold and gray, wandering away from home

Parted with a horrid cry, snow falls on his grief
United by the sword of wicked screams
What deeds he has done to hear those deadful sounds
In the ruins of memories he wanders, forever bound
Forever bound to death!

Wait for me in the mountains, haunt for me in the winds
Wait for me in the land where nothing lives
Until the day I have found revenge, I will feed my sword
Until my heart is cold, every breath of mine is yours

[Middle Play]

Wait for me in the mountains, haunt for me in the winds
Wait for me in the land where nothing lives
Until the day I have found revenge, I will feed my sword
Until my heart is cold, every breath of mine is yours
Every breath of mine is yours

    General CommentDracula? LOL
    It's the stock "Wandering Hero", he shows up in every fantasy story and every mythological cycle ever. The song doesn't really mean anything, you already know the story too well. Hero is in love with someone and he wants revenge for something and he wanders around seeking revenge and hoping to one day settle down with the one he loves. But as cliche as the story is, it's cliche for a reason; it's a story we all like.
    Lyrics-wise, there's nothing here. Just a standard basic story to give Jari something to sing about while they play the song :)
    But musically, this song is absolutely amazing. It almost feels more like a Wintersun song.
