The wella woods of Belvedere,
The peat and moss of Avenroe,
St. Germain's canaries,
The fortress of Alpentine.

Oh, my soul! My loyalty is to the East and Spectral man, and bird, and beast.

Red soil for the taking,
Ruddy women for your brides.

All good men of valourous heart, consider a new start,
And sail today for the Heartland!

    General CommentI'd say this is Lewis calling others to take up his call against Owen, no?

    Song MeaningIt's a propaganda song in the voice of the citizens of Lewis' home (Spectrum, I guess?) urging settlers to try to forge a new life in the New World (Heartland). It's probably meant to be Lewis singing it in a bitterly ironic manner. It's sort of hard to figure out without knowing much about the album's world. Are there any articles or interviews or anything that elaborate on the setting? I thought I read one once but I can't be sure.
