Deep in the ocean, dead and cast away
Where innocences burn in flames
A million mile from home, I'm walking ahead
I'm frozen to the bones, I am
A soldier on my own, I don't know the way
I'm riding up the heights of shame
I'm waiting for the call, the hand on the chest
I'm ready for the fight, and fate
The sound of iron shocks is stuck in my head,
The thunder of the drums dictates
The rhythm of the falls, the number of deads
The rising of the horns, ahead
From the dawn of time to the end of days
I will have to run, away
I want to feel the pain and the bitter taste
Of the blood on my lips, again
The steady burst of snow is burning my hands,
I'm frozen to the bones, I am
A million mile from home, I'm walking away
I can't remind your eyes, your face

    Well , for one this song is fitting of an assassin. It's a way of life with all it's bitterness, but like any way of life it has some kind of appeal. Again though the road is hard it is a way of life, what you do becomes you and the pain of what you might have sacrificed for this life you sometimes regret.

    He's in a war, and he's fighting for what he believes in. For the rest of his life he is going to be a soldier, and he wants to be a soldier.
