I have seen ancient rivers of silver
Glacial plains fading into blue light
I have stood on frozen thunder
Hunched in storms through an endless night

Voices call from a howling wasteland
"Feel your hunger and hold your tongue
Surrender here your fatal yearning
There's no shelter for those who come to the midnight sun"

Winter steals beneath a rainbow curtain
Oceans freeze, the weeks melt into the years
I've scaled heights of beauty and wonder
Known despair and the depths of fear

Stumbling wide at the limits of the compass
Fur and canvass in the wilderness of pain
You can lose your mind in the panic of snow blindness
Icy winds strike you deaf and numb at the midnight sun

None but cowards seek badges of courage
Only fools seek the trappings of fame
There's no conquest just an endless striving
There's no glory just a restless flame

No man's land white desert ice mountains
Beyond the pole let the reckless come
Bathed in light an infinity of silence
Cleanse the soul leave the senses stunned at the midnight sun
