Amorphis – When The Gods Came

When The Gods Came

[Verse 1]
As worms upon the forest floor
Swarming were they and a-stirring
Twisting upwards and a-swirling
As eagles soaring to the sky

With the eyes of dragonflies
Ears of eager leather wings
On the wings of black-throat divers
By the honeyed paws of bears

[Pre-Chorus]
Telling us what it means to be
Chanting us into being

[Chorus]
Came the Gods to our people
Told us how a man should be
They taught us how to live our lives

Came the Gods to our people
Chanting us into the world
They taught us how to live our lives

[Verse 2]
They lead us to a woodland spring
To show us our shining reflection
There they attuned our senses
And fit us with ability

In the winds of the unknown
We heard the swan begin to sing
The stars were our sure guides
Dreams showed us the way to go

[Pre-Chorus]
Telling us what it means to be
Chanting us into being

[Guitar solo]

[Chorus]
Came the Gods to our people
Told us how a man should be
They taught us how to live our lives

Came the Gods to our people
Chanting us into the world
They taught us how to live our lives

[Outro]
In the daze of the unknown

By the winds of distant heavens
Beckoned by the unknown skies
By the winds of distant heavens
Beckoned by the unknown skies
