  • The Carpenter

    Nightwish

    Genre:

    Symphonic Heavy
    1997

    Who are you?
    Man condemned to shine a salvation
    Throughout the centuries

    Why was the wine of the grail
    Too sour for man to drink?

    The carpenter
    Carved his anchor
    On the dying souls of mankind
    On the tomb of this unknown soldier
    Lay the tools of the one who for us had died
    Tools of the carpenter

    The one they lick
    The same old sick
    Dream of their precious saviour

    Kiss them deep
    And make them weep
    Over promises of eternal peace

    The carpenter

    I hear you
    Through the symphonic voices of nature
    The purity I could never doubt
    They tell me to lie on the grass
    And observe my saviour
    The one crucified to the chirping of birds

    The carpenter
