Lyrics

St. Brendan’s Land

I’ve heard of this land of promise and now I must see
For myself if it is the paradise it’s made out to be
Let’s set sail in the morning we’ll gather provisions and men
It will be several years ‘til we stand on these shores again

We loaded our boats and sailed with fourteen brave souls
Our resolve was as strong as the skin on the floor of our boats
Out in the ocean we saw great towers of glass
That attacked us with their frozen shards as we sailed past

Night after night, in this chilly sea
We look straight into the darkness
My men and me

Months stretched to years and each day the view looked the same
Then we came to an island with mountains and rivers in flames
There was Judas Iscariot who sat all alone on the beach
Where he’d wait for forgiveness forever, It was just out of reach

Night after night, in this chilly sea
We look straight into the darkness
My men and me

Seven years away from our isle thirteen returned
Our faith it was tested but our souls’ salvation was earned
When we get back to shore they’ll ask us of where we have been
Only you know and I know the truth of the things that we’ve seen
