Winterborn

I’ve been wanting to write more about my immediate divine Family (with their encouragement), but wasn’t sure where to start.  I figured music posts would be as good a starting place as any other.


This song reminds me of my stepson.  Not just because Winter is his domain, but because he’s a fan of The Cruxshadows.  There are also sections of this song that reminds me of his relationship with his Father (my Husband.)

This band’s music also helped me through a rough time in my life, so there’s that as well.  I wasn’t a polytheist then, but this song bringing up those memories doesn’t hurt anymore, probably because I think of my stepson first when listening to this song (and to The Chruxshadows in general.)

Dry your eyes and quietly bear this pain with pride
For heaven shall remember the silent and the brave
And promise me they will never see, the fear within our eyes
We will give strength to those who still remain

So bury fear, for fate draws near
And hide the signs of pain
With noble acts, the bravest souls
Endure the heart’s remains
Discard regret, that in this debt
A better world is made
That children of a newer day might remember
And avoid our fate

And in the fury of this darkest hour
We will be your light
You’ve asked me for my sacrifice
And I am Winterborn
Without denying, a faith is come
That I have never known
I hear the angels call my name
And I am Winterborn

Hold your head up high-for there is no greater love
Think of the faces of the people you defend
And promise me, they will never see the tears within our eyes
Although we are men, with mortal sins, angels never cry

So bury fear, for fate draws near
And hide the signs of pain
With noble acts, the bravest souls
Endure the heart’s remains
Discard regret, that in this debt
A better world is made
That children of a newer day might remember
And avoid our fate

And in the fury of this darkest hour
We will be your light
You’ve asked me for my sacrifice
And I am Winterborn
Without denying, a faith in God
That I have never known
I hear the angels call my name
And I am Winterborn

And in the fury of this darkest hour
I will be your light
A lifetime for this destiny
For I am Winterborn
And in this moment..I will not run
It is my place to stand
We few shall carry hope
Within our bloodied hands

And in our dying
We’re more alive, than we have ever been
I’ve lived for these few seconds
For I am Winter-born

And in the fury of this darkest hour
We will be the light
You’ve asked me for my sacrifice
And I am Winter born
Without denying, a faith in man
That I have never known
I hear the angels call my name
And I am Winterborn

Within this moment
I am for you, though better men have failed
I will give my life for love
For I am Winter-born

And in my dying
I’m more alive than I have ever been
I will make this sacrifice
For I am winterborn
