Amorphis Silent Waters Music Video

Music video for Silent Waters, from the 2007 Amorphis album of the same name.  The lyrics for the album like much of the bands work are drawn from works based on the Finnish epic work of mythology the Kalevala.  In this case the lyrics are English translations of poems by poet Pekka Kainulainen about the character Lemminkäinen, who is a a mythological shaman in the works.

Silent Waters performed well for the band achieving gold certification in Finland , selling 20,000 copies to date.

Silent Waters Lyrics:

A day’s light told me of my son’s fate
The sun showed the way, grim and severe
Pulled under the raging waters, my child
Sank in the drowning currents, my son
My strength is not enough, my powers failed me
I need the heavens help, I ask for thunder’s force
I plead for you oh lightning, forge an iron tool
A magic rake for dragging, a river for my son
God of fire bring your light
Forger of sun help me now
Guardian of the shore will sleep in your warmth
Lull the folk of cold water
Banish the serpents of the dark
To the river let me go and fetch my son away
A rake made of iron from the Gods of skies
The spirit of bright days sent me the sun
Cold troops of Tuoni can not stand in my way
Untouched I shall walk by the river of the night
My child
My son
