"Across the Highlands" as written by and Roy S./youngblood Khantatat....
I've been witness to so many wars
That I'm blind to affliction
No ability left to remorse
It's my faith and conviction

Wide awake
In this world
Full of hate
I unfurl

But I am damned
If life itself is condemnation
I am immortal
Thus my freedom is captivity

Flying all across the highlands
Searching for a way
To finalize my history
Rising high above the mountains

Reaching for the sky
Closer to my sanctuary

All my life I've been trying to die
Reach complete segregation
I am ready to open my eyes
To a new revelation

Lost in time
There's no place
For my soul
In his embrace

For I am damned
If life itself is condemnation
I am immortal
Thus my freedom is captivity
Bound to live eternally

    General CommentLol.. I loved this song but I never noticed it was about the Highlander till I was looking at the lyrics just now. Never payed attention to them before. The Highlander was one of my favorite TV shows (first movie is good too) and I was browsing the Karma book and was like... whoa, this is about the Highlander.

    General Commentwow. yeah, this has to be highlander

    before a imagined a god flying across the mountains like an eagle, surveying and finding the land boring already. he wants to die and go into nirvana, hehe--- too literal but this imagery really pops into my mind when i listen to it. now i'm going to see thomas youngblood (he looks like the highlander actor because of his hair) with a sword.

    General CommentTo me,

    "but I am damned
    if life itself is condemnation"

    Is talking about Christianity

    and

    "all my life I've been trying to die
    reach complete segregation
    I am ready to open my eyes
    to a new revelation"

    Is talking about Buddhism.

    He's searching for Truth
