A Moment of Tranquility and Enlightenment

He was an outsider

They called him a freak at school

But this didn't worry him

He had always been an outsider

Wrapped in a veil of darkness

His secrets lay hidden away

He played the guitar

He learnt a few chords

And started to write his own songs

He listened to Nightwish and Within Temptation

I felt a bond, kindred spirits

He welcomed the darkness into his soul

Soon he would try to find a place in the world

He attended a few gothic nightclubs

And made a few friends

They decided to form a band

Their following grew

They performed in small gigs around their hometown

And then further a field around the whole of Norway

Soon they were climbing the charts

Their album went to number one

They started to perform at large festivals

The fans could be counted in the hundreds of thousands

This child was lonely no more

A hundred thousand kindred spirits calling out his name

So many lonely souls looking for a guiding light

All united in a moment of tranquility and enlightenment
