I do apologise about this. It is my first attempt using music, poetry and a photo all in one post.
The track was released in 2001, and comes from this Dutch Symphonic metal band’s second studio album. It is the track that they normally end all of their concerts with. The exception being the 2011 Unforgiving Tour. The lyrics of the song take their inspiration from nature, as do the majority of the songs from that album.
Crunching through the snow
It feels odd, but nice
Until, the wrong way they go
And find it’s full of ice
Seeing pets: dogs and cats
Looking forlorn, shaking paws
looking at their owners, wearing hats
Wishing they were home, indoors
The dogs start to pull and tug on their leads
They’ve had enough, no longer wanting to roam
They’ve had their walk, done their deeds
Now the only place they want to go is home
