Alone on the top of the fells
I chant for the wild moon
I wrote my chant for the moon's glory
For the lighter of my mood
I wish I could be one of his sons
And one with the earth
So I could walk on the lunar path
And chant forever

I'm the son of the moon
I'm one with the creator...
I praise the moon
Wild moon is my nature
My life is so short
But yours is sustained
And when I'll leave
My chant will remain
Always with you my friend

On a crystal clear night
I stare at the moon
Once raped by the sun
The guardian of the woods
The spirit of the night
It gave me the wild life
Under the shape of the moon
I've found the final truth

Chorus

    General Commentha! i actually knew that! but only because i read the lyrics. lol. i thought it was finnish (suome (sp)) but whatever. also Vilda is similar to the swedish word for wild. but Mon is moon in swedish so yeah.

    anyway, this song has some of the most wicked twin-guitar work i have ever heard. it's really sweet.

    i can't really tell what it's about, i guess he's expressing his devotion to the moon, and he wishes he were it. i really don't know. i really love the song though...

    General Commentactually, i think i have discovered the meaning. it is an expression of yearning for the simplicity of the days of old, like in the ancient towns of the northmen. i would not be surprized if he also realized how dangerous this is, but he wishes to go back to the days of old anyway... sorry if that wasn't really the meaning
