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 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.

    General CommentDoes anyone else see this as finland in world war two? It may be a stretch but it is very possible.

    General Commenti think like craniifer, i find *my land* to be a quite unsuitable expression or metaphor for a living person, wouldn't be much of a nice pet name to call your girl *my land*, would it?
    That one with the Dalai Lama and Tibet seems possible, Finland may be, too, even if I don't know anything about their role in wwII

    General CommentHuh. I thought it was just about literally taking back land in a war or something.

    General CommentI think it talks about Finland, I've already read finnish people talking about it and how Finland used to be taken by other countries.

    My InterpretationThis song makes me think of a character like William "D-Fens" Foster from the movie Falling Down. A dedicated man who did everything right according to his own beliefs, but was still ejected from his own family, while his ex got together with another ("now it's invaded by a stranger.") The narrator is seeking to claim back his former life, which only exists in his imagination by now, and it will not end well for anyone involved.

    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.
