THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WALL.

ON THE LAND WHERE I WAS BORN,THERE WAS ONLY CHEIFS OF EVERY CLAN.
THEN CAME THE KINGS OF SERVANT MAN PREPARING CONQUEST OVER THE LANDS.
THEIR STRANGE DREAMS OF DOMINATION WITH GODS SUPREME AND MAN FORGOTTEN.
OUR WAYS OF CLAN RULE AMONG OUR NATION.
FRIGHTENED THEIR VERY IMAGINATIONS.
WE HAD TOO MANY CHEIFS WHO HATED THEIR STATUS!
HIGHTENING THE FEARS OF THOSE SUPERSTIOUS.
SO THE RETREATED AND BUILT A WALL WITHIN.
AND THE PEOPLE VICTORIOUS BEGUN TO SING!
COME TO THE LAND OF THE BONNIE FREE SCOTS!
WHERE THE WELCOME IS HONEST AND THE BEST WE HAVE GOT!
HADRIANS WALL IS A MONUMENT TO FEAR!
OUTSIDE LISTENS AND THE OTHERS DISSAPEAR!
OUR GARDEN OF PARADISE HAS NO GATES!
JUST FULL OF CLANS WHO WILL GLADLY FILL YOUR PLATES!
