Eloy – Mutiny (HQ)


(Eloy/Frank Bornemann/Gordon Bennit) 1975
Taken from the album Power and the Passion
I do not own the rights.

Lyrics:

Your father told me I can stay,
but he mistrusts my unfamiliar ways..
He want’s to use the things I’ve learnt,
six hundred years of knowledge sorely earned..
But if we..
can stay together, I don’t mind
The things he tells me
Of defending him in mutiny..
I don’t care..
If you’re there..
I don’t care..

One the farms they’ve made a stand
against the hated iron hands, they’re uniting..
They’re backed by everyone in town
and I must ride to beat them down, how they’re fighting..
But I understand their cause
to fight against the laws, they’re right..
I promised to defend
your father to the end and fight..
The hatred’s there in their eyes,
they’ll break his might it’s no surprise if they do it..
But I must take the other side
and somehow learn to stand and fight and come through it..

Though there’s little chance
that I beat bow and lance, I must..
Our love drives me on
for you’re the only one I can trust..
