02. Fall To Rise

Music & lyrics by Persefone
Life in every breeze of air
In every cup of tea
When fear holds your heart beating
Cowardice stabs your will
Drowning you in doubts

To get to the agonic point of giving up
Self-destruction, the only path for you to find strength
You're weak to the bone
Poisoned for the fangs of lie

Feelings drown in chaotic thoughts
Face the fear, rise against the dawn
Raise your soul with pride
Your sword is faith
As you feel the death
The harder life becomes the more you must stand
You are alone in your life
But brave in your fight

Suffering, wounded
Again and again
Seven times ahead to fall
Rise, Rise an eight
And keep the fight
Keep the fight and
Become a warrior

Feelings drown in chaotic thoughts
Face the fear, rise against the dawn
Raise your soul with pride
Your sword is faith
As you feel the death
The harder life becomes the more you must stand
You are alone in your life
Alone...

Feelings drown in chaotic thoughts
Face the fear, rise against the dawn
Raise your soul with pride
Your sword is faith
As you feel the death
The harder life becomes the more you must stand
You are alone in your life
But brave in your fight


03. Death Before Dishonour

Music & lyrics by Persefone
Fight with courage
Don't look at your back seeking for death
Enemy is facing you...
Your sight is cold
Fire in your soul!

Your soul screaming
Your hands keep fighting
Daring is guiding your will
Blood is in your eyes
Freedom in your mind

There's no fear, life is brief
Standing firm in loyalty
You feel the past
The linage blood inside your veins
You fight for them
With strength
And a hundred warriors carried in your
Rage stained blade

Because it's me
The judge that guides the choices in my way
I decide
How to going on if it's the end
To avoid living in disgrace

Feel the cold rain in your face
"I hear the strength of my heartbeat"
Brave ones duelling to death...
"I feel no fear if my way ends here"
Follow the shouts of your heart
"I'm doing right pushed by my faith"
Nor right nor wrong, this is your will
"I have to face my destiny!"

Because it's me
The judge that guides the choices in my way
I decide how to going on, if it's the end
To avoid living in disgrace
Facing fears, living every day
As it was the last
Past and now
Loyalty as a good path to behold
To die humbly honouring my life

05. The Endless Path

Music & lyrics by Persefone
Searching perfection through practice
Facing the life with patience
Staying calm in the middle of the storm

Complications become easily
Simple things become complex
There's a reason for everything
And everything needs a reason to be

Searching for truth on every move
Any day could be the last
Never falling to oblivion
Every step leads to the knowledge

In the long way of perfection
Where the aim is an ethereal illusion
Unreachable in a thousand lives

Starting everyday
Like the sun beneath the horizon
Choosing every move, slowly
To never forget the small details

A calm sight to the next goal
The defeat cannot be a way
Is only the end
In honour remains
To born again and follow the endless path

The way kept clear in mind
And hands kept stronger to strike
Deserving to be someone
Everyone can be the one
When everything is getting worse
Stay harder than stone
Fluid like the waves of the sea

Life is the harder fight
Winner or looser
It doesn't matter
Just the honour and glory
Just training to protect all those beloved ones

Never surrender when falling down
Keep walking even in the fog
Never crawling and keep trying
Let the soul follow the truth
Let your inner strength flow
Follow the truth...

Searching perfection through practice
Facing the life with passion
There's a reason for everything
And everything needs a reason to be
Searching for truth on every move
Any day could be the last

07. Purity

Music by Persefone
Lyrics by Manuel Corredor
The wind is murmuring a light
That lights the night
And only its voice is advicing me

I'm longing to find the void
The emptiness
That means everything

I've resigned my body
And now the land is my home...
The sky cries in the rain
The tears I keep
The universe, me, the void
Are all the same...

Inert desert breathing out life
The same mistake
The same success
Justice that never fails
Justice that never hesitate...

I am the void
I am everything
Bushido is dying in every chance
Death's as pure as life
To born pure and die still
Being stronger than mankind's weakness

All around my skin
Time's skin lies over me
As a huge animal bended over
Your light that shines right in my eyes
Is the beginning and end of everything
Water spilling through the dreaming fingers

My hair's the wind
And my feet the earth
Never hesitating
Purity calms down my thirst

I am the void
I am everything
Bushido is dying in every chance
Death's as pure as life
To born pure and die still
Being stronger...


08. Rage Stained Blade

Music & lyrics by Persefone
Morning rise
The silent roar of the battlefield
And I face right beyond my fears
A sharpened blade goes through the wind
To my destiny

No doubts, nor fright
There is no place for groan
The rage stained blade arises
When the forged steel came across my life
I follow the endless path

In front of tremulous souls
Serenity lies in me
I know they await shuddered

Frozen, shattered
Their courage in terror gets trapped
There is no place for groan
The rage stained blade arises

No doubts, nor fright
There is no place for groan
There is no place for cries

I know it is and endless path
I walk the way of purity
The way of samurai

Running through a thousand enemies

Dodging their strongest strikes
My blood starts to spatter in my face
My blade runs fast
And reach my final objective
And as I fall,
My soul will remain...

10. Kusanagi

Music & lyrics by Persefone
Old as time
The strongest power of mankind
It was searched for
By all men with courage to face it
Living in all of us
Awaits the moment to show its eyes
The power to be the one

Let the rain clean my sweat
Let the wind clear my mind
The pride I must leave behind
To find strength in my path"

What you need it lives in you
Strong decisions you must live for!
"Old men in ancient times
Searched for it on the courage path"
All your fears disappear
When conviction rises all around
"Fear is my wall to get the power
Righteousness will draw out from my soul!"

As did the Sword of Gods
The one that stands is the one who believes
You hold your power as your fears
Stand away from your way
You hold your inner strength
Living every moment as the last

"In silence I remain standing
Searching for the right ideas
To be strong on weakness
To be wise on ignorance

I feel lost, as my sight has become grey
I behold, what I used to see as clear as a blue sky
A shadow in my will that hides my fears
I shall get over them, bravery!"

As did the Sword of Gods
The one who stands is the one who believe
You hold your power as your fears
Stand away from your way
You hold your inner strength
Living every moment as the last


11. Shin-Ken (Part I)

Music & lyrics by Persefone
I feel their hate
I can see the fear in their cowardly eyes
They treat me as a beast, a demon

The man who cannot feel
Searching for glory
So that to be reminded
Fighting to death

The great war's about to explode
This is the chance for me to rise
From this darkened hole
It's hard to think
There's only chaos around
Just blood, and shouts

Luck chose the enemy
To claim the triumph against us
Against me

Just blood and shouts

Death is near
Pursuing me.
I can't fall that soon
And I hide under those
Who looked at her eyes

And I learnt (that) the power of mind
Is the cutting edge of the sword
From fight to fight, master after master
Harvesting the seeds of knowledge

My blade's required to veil for other's causes
But my war's against the beast
And the promises I didn't keep
To those I left
Throughout the way

They call me beast, they call me demon
Until my skill get over them as a master

Practice and perfection I searched for
Learning is all what I have done
I faced death with courage everyday
And I always saw the dawn rising again...

And it was the time and the moment has arrived
The warrior sight lights the trace of my blade...
I honour the way you follow in life
Now fight!!

Standing firm I keep your sight
I await your first strike
You use your force I use my mind
Fate will decide... who will die?
With honour you will lose your life


12. Shin-Ken (Part II)

Music & lyrics by Persefone
In my way, I found some moments of void
And I thought upon her
The promise that follows my steps
The light I have seen in my darkest hours

The one who never trust my lies
Lies said to protect her from myself
From all my shadows, from all my desires
To avoid them hurt me through her

I used my hands to work the stone
The fire guides my fingers to write
And the wind brings me a perfume
I have never forgot, she's just by my side

Chi, sui, ka, hu, kuu,
Towani
