Grendel's Journey

Marillion



I. Heorot's plea and Grendel's awakening

Midnight suns bid moors farewell,
retreats from charging dusk
Mountain echo, curfew's bell,
signal ending tasks
They place their faith in oaken doors,
cower in candlelight
The panic seeps through bloodstained floors
as Grendel stalks the night

Earth rim walker seeks his meals,
Prepare the funeral pyres
The shaper's songs no longer heal
the fear within their eyes,
Their eyes, their eyes, their eyes, their eyes
Wooden figures, pagan gods,
stare blindly cross the sea
Appeal for help from ocean fogs,
for saviour born of dreams
They know their lives are forfeit now,
priestly heads they bow in shame
They cannot face the trembling crowd
that flinch in Grendel's name

Earth rim walker seeks his meals,
Prepare the funeral pyres
The shaper's songs no longer heal
the fear within their eyes,
Their eyes, their eyes, their eyes, their eyes
As Grendel leaves his mossy home
beneath the stagnant mere
Along the forest path he roams
to Hrothgar's hall so clear
He knows that victory is secured,
his charm will testify
His claws will drip with mortal blood
as moonbeams haunt the sky
As Grendel leaves his mossy home
beneath the stagnant mere
Along the forest path he roams
to Hrothgar's hall so clear
He knows that victory is secured,
his charm will testify
His claws will drip with mortal blood
as moonbeams haunt the sky

Earth rim walker seeks his meals,
Prepare the funeral pyres
The shaper's songs no longer heal
the fear within their eyes,
Within their eyes,
Within their eyes
II. Grendel's Journey

Silken membranes span his path,
fingerprints in dew
Denizens of twilight lands, humbly beg him through
Mother Nature's bastard child,
shunned by leaf and stream
An alien in an alien land seeks solace within dreams
The shaper's lies,
his poison tongue maligned with mocking harp
Beguiling queen, her innocence offends his icy heart
III. Lurker At The Threshold

Hounds freeze in silence,
bewitched by the reptile's spell
Sulphurous essence pervades round the grassy dell
Heorot awaits him like lamb to the butcher's knife
Stellular heavens ignore even children's cries

Screams are his music,
lightning his guide
Raping the darkness,
d d d d death by his side

Chants rise in terror, free round the oaken beams
Flickering firelight portraying the grisly scene
Warriors advance, prepare for the nightmare foe
Futile their sacrifice as even their hearts must know

Heroes' delusions, with feet in the grave
Lurker at the threshold,
He cares not for the brave,
He cares not for the brave
So you thought that your bolts and your locks
would keep me out
You should have known better after all this time
You're gonna pay in blood
for all your viscious slander
With your ugly pale skins
and your putrid blue eyes
Why should I feel pity when you kill your own
and feel no shame?
God's on my side, sure as hell,
I'm gonna take no blame,
I'm gonna take no blame,
I'm gonna take no blame
So you say you believe in
all of Mother Nature's laws
You lust for gold with your sharpened knives
When your hoards are gathered
and your enemies left to rot
You pray with your bloodstained hands
at the feet of your pagan gods
Then you try to place the killer's blade in my hands
You call for justice, distort the truth

Well I've had enough of all your pretty,
pretty speeches
Recieve your punishment,
Expose your throats to my righteous
claws and let the blood flow
Let the blood flow
Let the blood flow
Let the blood flow
Let the blood flow
Let the blood flow
Let the blood flow
Let the blood flow
Let the blood flow flow
Let the blood flow
Let the blood flow, flow, flow
Let the blood flow
Let the blood flow
Let the blood, let the blood,
Let the blood, let the blood,
Let the blood, let the blood,
Let the blood, let the blood, let the blood,
Flow, flow, flow, flow, flow, flow, flow, flow!
