X MARKS THE SPOT

Sonata Arctica

Letra de la canción

“I was in a really dark place.
I even thought of packing it in, but I just could not bring myself to do it.
I met an old friend that I had a real connection with,
and he saw my despair.
He asked me if I’d like to play with him
and as we played I felt, slowly but surely, rock ‘n roll grabbed me by the neck, and I, well...”

You are a man of impeccable taste
and you know when the X marks the spot.
We all need a map for the trail of your thought,
where to go, well, the X marks the spot.

You seem to have a misgiving.
Hell yeah, you make a living.
Don't add bricks to what we're heaving.
We would so much
rather enjoy the beach, beer and fire.

You think something somewhere
has a copyright for the world,
and you've signed where the X marks the spot.
You join a cult, fill the void that you've got
deep within where the X marks the spot.

There you stand and talk and holler
how dark are all your colors.
When you paint another sunrise
you leave out the sun.

Birds like you fly straight to heaven, heaven
or they slowly float away.

How well do you know those you're calling your own?
I mean... come on dude! (X marks the spot).

Your starving soul in your house of skin and bone.
You're an island, the X marks the spot.

“Testify children, testify”.

There you stand and talk and holler
how dark are all your colors.
When you paint another sunrise
you leave out the sun.

[2x]
Birds like you fly straight to heaven, heaven
or they slowly float away...

"Rock ’n’ roll allowed me to join this band
and there was a period of time when I hadn’t exactly lost my soul.
I just didn’t know where I’d put it.
And I ended up in some very dark places and some dire circumstances.
Now let me tell you, children, I was trying to fill a void in my heart,
to fill that void I got what I always wanted:
Success, prosperity, the admiration I wanted as a player;
I got a place in big shows and travelled the world from end to end.
And the next of it all, I had this yearning in my heart,
yearning in my heart for rock ‘n’ roll".

"I was called to join this band
and I was surrounded by good folks there and servants of the rock ’n’ roll who passed on the love.
I’ll testify: the fear was in me, I was afraid of everything.
I can swear I saw my own living heart beating through my shirt."

You are a circus, but where is the clown?
There's no map, still the X marks the spot.

There you stand and talk and holler
how dark are all your colors.
When you paint another sunrise
you leave out the sun.

Birds like you fly straight to heaven, heaven
or they slowly float down into the night with senior John Barleycorn, ay ay ay!
Heaven, heaven
or they slowly float away…

"Now you children, are you ready to spread the word?
Everybody sing Eo! (Eo)
Everybody sing Wohoho! (wohoho)
Everybody sing Hey hey! (hey hey) – Wow wow! (wow wow) – Hey hey! (hey hey) – Hu? (hu?)"

[2x]
Birds like you fly straight to heaven, heaven
or they slowly float away...

"And the funny thing was I was like a spiritual baby running around with diapers on where the X marks the spot.
I'd given my life to rock 'n' roll but I still wasn't sure, was there rock 'n' roll? Is it real?"
