My own land has closed ots gates on me
All alone in world, it's scaring me

I am here to prove you wrong
I'm accused of something I live for

In my dreamland, there's some who understands
A friendly soul, trusting life in my hands

Yes, I gave it all I can
Now it's invaded by a stranger

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you're not so brave
Are you man enough, carry the load all alone
When other have your own

My old land is but a pile of sand
Cold and bare but something still is there

I am here to claim my land
You can't keep me away forever

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you're not so brave
Are you man enough, carry the load all alone
When other have your own

I'm a true patriot, you are my land,
you have my soul, you have all I had
Now I am here, and I want it all back

In my dreams, I climb the hills I see
and let a gentle breeze lead me to
plains I once have seen and
Clear blue sky, I swim in lakes I find
I build a house right there
that you can't take away

I am here to claim my land
you can't keep me away, forever, ever

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you're not so brave
Are you man enough, carry the load all alone
When other have your own

    General CommentZomfg! The intro nearly made me cry! T_T

    If you ask me the, it is about a man (or woman) who's love and life is being held down by somebody (or something, a government?) and he/she has finally had enough. He's gonna rebel and kick all ass to get his sould back.

    General CommentI think this one is about a person who loves someone else, and feels betrayed because she dumped him and stopped talking to him because of something he didnt do.

    "Now it's invaded by a stranger" meaning that his ex, is with someone new who was never met with this guy.
    "Now I am here, and I want it all back" planning revenge on his "land" and the betrayer...

    thats my thoughts and how i see it.

    General CommentOr possible about someones "happy place" being taken away from them, and how they are trying to get it back. Though it could be any of these that's what I got from it.

    General CommentIts possyibly about the Dalai Lama, living in india and claiming 'his land' to be indepentent from china. China annected tibet in 1950 and he had to escape to india.

    "My old land is but a pile of sand
    Cold and bare but something still is there"

    ", I climb the hills I see
    and let a gentle breeze lead me to
    plains I once have seen and
    Clear blue sky, I swim in lakes I find"

    These two phrases indicate that tibet is meant.

    Another hint is that the Dalai Lama called his autobiography "My land and my People".

    General CommentI like both the Dalai Lama and the pwn little world interpretations, but am I the only one who first just thought it was about losing land...literally.
