about

The background story of the lyrics is that of a Stormtrooper getting deserted on an unknown planet. There he meets a woman and they fall in love. Later, he has to return to battle and she is left behind, with their child.

The song is a metaphor for two people who are fundamentally different. One being idealistic and of the sky while the other is practical and of the land and how they can only be together for a short while, before drifting apart.

lyrics

Stormtrooper

I knew he was trouble.
I knew he would leave me.
But what does it matter
for he does not see me.
Head in the clouds,
mind in the sky.
Stormtrooper.

Where does it lie
the honor the glory?
A blank staring eye?
a limp lifeless body?
As for us all
duty will call
this Stormtrooper.

Storm, storm, storm, storm, storm, Stormtrooper

I'm of the land
ideals do not own me.
Barefoot in the sand
I'm free but I'm lonely.
Holding my hand,
a tiny hand
a little clone trooper.

As the wind it moves the tree
the earth and sky momentarily
collide
like you and I.
Goodbye, goodbye.

Storm, storm, storm, storm, storm, Stormtrooper

Storm, storm, storm, storm, storm, Stormtrooper

As the wind it moves the tree
the earth and sky momentarily
collide
like you and I.
Goodbye, goodbye.
