XIII: THE DEATH - Croatoan

Croatoan is paradise,
Croatoan is mistery
of a hundred people
disappeared suddenly

Croatoan is a better place,
Croatoan is the Nature's Call,
shelter from the man's rage
this island is unpredictable

First approach with the Indians
of Roanoke was really brutal
Angered by the theft of a silver cup
the white man killed their leader
Second expedition, where I was there,
was directed to found a colony
a hundred souls with my daughter
in that paradise but I must go back

Years of war, far from you in need,
imprisoned by my land, I must hurry now
3 years have passed and I'm finally on the way back,
back to you, my beloved daughter, back to Roanoke,
back to Paradise, far from war, I was just thinking of you ... but
... what the hell is happened? Where are you? Where's ... everybody?
a settlement deserted and a high fence to protect
... but from who? from what? There are no signs of struggle
or battle. No grave. No corpse. Only a world carved in a tree:

Croatoan!

Croatoan is balance, Croatoan is nature,
Croatoan is wiser, Croatoan is mature,
Croatoan is genuine, Croatoan is deeper,
Croatoan has no words, Croatoan has believers

Croatoan is paradise,
Croatoan is mistery
of a hundred people
disappeared suddenly

Croatoan is a better place,
Croatoan is the Nature's Call,
shelter from the man's rage
this island is unpredictable

Croatoan is Nature, Mother of all things,
Mother of gods and Mother of mortals,
origin of all, joyful pleasure,
eternal life, eternal providence
generous Goddess, You rule everything
you destroy all, brilliant dominatrix
Please Goddess: bring us peace
and the beloved harmony

Croatoan!
