"The Flight Of The Outcasts"
Martin Kahnberg

Music & Lyrics: Martin Kahnberg

Lyrics

I loved my life
Back home in the forest
Where the sun always shone
Where love always won
I was renown
I was a part of the circle nine
I had a life given to few
And I had my dreams
I was going to be the leader

Then suddenly a storm
Laid waste to our forest shore
I ran for my life
Not knowing where to run to
I lost my love
I had to flee all I'd known
I lost my brotherhood
I was alone out there in the wilds
I was lost, I had to find some shelter

I found a man
Alone in a sheltering cave that night
He let me in
We made friends in the firelight

We ran away from all we'd known before
We ran away from our treasured forest shore
How we ran

We fled for weeks
Through land's everchanging course
O'er hills and through vales
Past rivers and fens
We kept our dreams
We made a promise we'd never break
We had to keep healing the land
And we mustn't fail
We just had to do it all together

We found a place
A valley protected from storms
The perfect place
For our forming brotherhood

We ran away from all we'd known before
We ran away from our treasured forest shore
We ran away from all we'd known before
We ran away from our treasured forest shore
...and survived!
