To be rising chief I have traveled a hundred fold days
Wandered dark wilderness, ravens have gathered my ways
Holy man, vision quest, dancing dawn reflects his gaze
Return to the clan with the scalps of the men who betrayed

Medicine Man has concocted a potion to see
Animal Spirits have filled me and leads what's to be
Runningwolf, eagle eyes, blood running cold in my veins
Great Spirit laughs as my enemies run from my reign

To be rising chief I have traveled a hundred fold days
Wandered dark wilderness ravens have gathered my ways
Look in my eyes your demise is what is fueling my rage
For I am the one whom by others is called Fire Face

    General CommentPretty straight forward I think. A young Indian warchief who starts a journey to prove himself. He travels for days and days, through hostile wilderness, ravens waiting for him to die. He has to return the traitors' scalps as proof.

    The tribe's medicine man made him a potion to see where he should go ("animal spirits" guiding him)

    then he finds them (look in my eyes...) and pronounces his name for all to hear.

    kick-ass song :D
