WHITELAND
Lyrics: Plisnier K., Music: Opus, published by Opus Music Edition

THEREīS A LAND IN THE SOUTH
- WHERE THE OCEAN GLOWS
THEREīS A LAND IN THE SOUTH
- WHERE NO RIVER FLOWS
ITīS A LAND WITHOUT RAIN AND NO DISEASE
ITīS A LAND WITHOUT GRAIN AND TREES

THEREīS A LAND IN THE SOUTH
- WHERE SUMMER IS WINTER
THEREīS A LAND IN THE SOUTH
- WHERE WINTER IS HELL
ITīS A LAND FULL OF GRACE AND DIGNITY
ITīS THE LAST OF AN UNCONQUERED WORLD

HOW LONG WILL THE MIDNIGHT SUN
- STILL SHINE ON VIRGIN SNOW
HOW LONG SINCE WEīVE BEGUN
- TO MAKE IT ANOTHER STAGE FOR OUR SHOW

LET THE WHITELAND DREAM IN PEACE
LET THAT SILENCE NEVER CEASE
LET THE WHITELAND DREAM IN PEACE
- DREAM IN PEACE

THEREīS A LAND IN THE SOUTH
- WITH JUST A FEW YEARS LEFT
THEREīS A LAND IN THE SOUTH
- FEARFUL OF IMPANDING DEATH
ITīS A LAND FULL OF GOLD
- BUT NO TREASURE LAND
IT MUST NOT BE SOLD OUT TO ANYONE

HOW LONG WILL YOUNG PENGUINS STILL BREED
- AND PLAY ON VIRGIN ICE
HOW LONG WILL WE STILL NEED
- FOR THE FINAL THROW OF THE DICE

LET THE WHITELAND...
