This song is inspired by my grandparents. I had never met them. They were both victims of war. It’s a reflection on myself and where I am from. Who came before me? What were their lives like? It’s a reflection on human needs. A way for me to try and understand life.


I am a knight - polishing my armour - carrying my sword - fighting my own karma
I am warrior - making my own glory - free to reign - writing my own story
Even with the thunder - in my heart and mind - on a cloudy day i can feel the sunlight
There’s a desert landscape on my skin - I’m cracked and burned from within.

I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old

The lack of rain - in my life caused a drought - the lack of love - caused the death of the heart
Black blossoms from the breath - I inhale the bitterness - I sit with the pain and exhale again
I go through the fire - my own personal hell - I look at the monsters - oh babe can you tell
I go to the grave with just a dollar in my pocket - with a heart full of grace - atleast i know I’ve got it.

I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old

A man without a country - a traitor to my blood - trying to clean the past away - with a dirty toothbrush
I lost my faith - long before there was a war - this was moving through me - as I scrubbed the floor
I was a coward - now I’m not - I was a traitor - I learned a lot
This is the end - of a life as I knew it - what’s yet to come - don’t know if I blew it.

I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old
I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old
