lyrics

I've got a stronghold here.
I've got a citadel against the coming storm.
I've got a stronghold here.
I've got a mind to find me the blood and the gore.
I've got a stronghold here.
I've got a sanctuary between the sea and the sky.
I've got a stronghold here.
And I will break you to pieces when you look in my eyes.

I have seen a glimpse of what's to come,
They'll tell you to run and hide when there's no hideaway.
I taste it like the salt upon my tongue,
We are the heart and pride.
This island's part of the tide,
And it is mine.

I've got a stronghold here.
Walk to get water and I work with my hands
To make a stronghold here.
Bones of my family are deep in the land.
I've got a stronghold here.
They've tried to break us for the last long while,
But we are steadfast here.
I'd like to see them try anything out here in the wild.

Maybe it's the wind that's made me tough,
But I will not run and hide, no I won't hide away.
If they'd like a little of my tongue, well,
It isn't out of reach I will give them a piece
Of my mind.
