From my world the sun faded
And the moon from my sky was gone with stars
I came home to a bleak room of sorrow
Forsaken house, place of grief, in solitude

[Chorus 1]
I listened to my heart beating
The faint rush of my blood
I listened to my heart beating
The echoes from space

[Chorus 2]
Something moving in the emptiness
Something drew me near
Someone told me of my future deeds
Whispered them in my ear

The sky stirred
The lights of space flared
Beneath my feet
The living earth started to breathe

[Chorus 1 + Chorus 2]

[Solo]

[Chorus 1 + Chorus 2]

[2x]
The sky is mine
This sword is mine
This fate is mine
This miracle, mine

From steel I made the master's sword
Cleaving stone, cliff, a mountain
From darkness I stepped
Onto the path of stars

    My InterpretationWell, the album is supposed to be based on the Kalevala. However, I interpret the song as being someone has had a fall from grace, then realizing that it's not that be. They take ownership of the situation with the "Sky is Mine" part, and get back on their feet, ready to carry on!

    Song MeaningThe Skyforger album is about Ilmarinen from Kalevala. I think this song refers to Songs 38 and 39. In song 38, Ilmarinen attempts to capture himself a wife (his first wife having been killed by Kullervo and his gold and silver one having been lifeless) from Pohjola. The girl refuses to come with him and insults him as he forces her to accompany him home, until, in a rage, he turns her into a bird.
    This song, as far as I can tell, refers to Ilmarinen's mood as he returns home without a bride (Verse 1, chorus 1), then (Chorus 2) Väinämöinen telling him of his idea to seize from Pohjola the Sampo (A gold and silver mill providing prosperity to the land that holds it), that Ilmarinen had forged in return for the hand of his first wife. I think the second verse, and certainly the ending section ("From steel I made the master's sword...") refers to Ilmarinen forging Väinämöinen a new sword for the expedition, which was later used to kill the great pike from whose jawbone the first Kantele was made.
