Lyrics of Sonata Arctica
My Land (written by Tony Kakko)
My own land has closed its 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 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 others 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


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 here
that you can't take away

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