Just to keep this community from really dying, I thought I'd share a Finnish song with you that once reminded me of the character Fitz. Particularly Fitz in Tawny Man. See if you'll agree.



Hey..

See how quietly
The world turns..
But the years grow short

And when the Sun and the Moon
Shine from the sky
I gather all my things outside to burn them

Yes..

The books and the papers
And even..
The furniture and the memories
And all the lies that come your way in life
All the good things that keep you from truly seeing

All that rust

Smoke coming up from the ruins
Can you know how it feels
To warm your hands in these ashes of burned homes

Hey..

See how quietly
It rains..
As dust over years

And perhaps these hands of a murderer
Seek for a head to caress, so gently
And to feel the weight of this world

All that rust

Smoke coming up from the ruins
Can you know how it feels
To warm your hands in these ashes of burned homes



The song is 'Ruoste' by Finnish singer-songwriter and poet A.W. Yrjänä, performed by his band CMX.
