about

This song is dedicated to the modern day heroes in China who risk their lives when they go out to raise awareness about the persecution of Falun Gong. They put up banners in the night, or give away information about the persecution. This helps people realise that atrocious human rights abuses are still happening to Falun Gong practitioners, even though the state-controlled media does not report it.

lyrics

I am a wanderer so far from home,
I’m a guardian of peace
challenging evil wherever I roam.
A son of chivalry with a firm belief,
I’m loyal to the good forces in heaven
on a mission of peace.

I left my burdens way far behind, I carry no heavy load.
Light is my body, peaceful my mind, while I’m walking down the road.



I am a traveler, awaken from a dream.
Nothing can stop me at all, I’m like a running stream.
Someone is guiding me, taking care of me,
by my side on this journey. I’m walking with dignity.

Sad times and bad times I’ve passed,
and they hurt a while.
But now, if trouble knocks on the door,
I greet him with a smile.



From village to village I bring the news.
No matter where I go, no matter which road I choose,
I’m bringing people the truth, bringing people the truth.



I am a wanderer so far from home,
I’m a guardian of peace
challenging evil wherever I roam.
A son of chivalry with a firm belief,
I’m loyal to the good forces in heaven
on a mission of peace.

I left my burdens way far behind, I carry no heavy load.
Light is my body, peaceful my mind, while I’m walking down the road.

about

Anders Eriksson

I have been writing songs since the middle of the 80s. My music is mixture of rock, soulful pop and American roots/folk music (Americana).


I have been engaged in the fight for human rights in China since many years. This commitment is reflected in some of my songs. For example "They Can’t Make Me Waver" which is a homage to the Chinese Falun Gong practitioner Liu Chengjun.
