02. In My Sword I Trust

Music by Markus Toivonen
Lyrics by Sami Hinkka (from Kalevala)
Many men have crossed my way
Promising peace or my soul to save
But I already heard you
I have seen what they made with their freedom
But I, I have no need for your god
The shallow truth of your poisonous tongue
Brothers it's time to make a stand
To reclaim our lives
Because all this steel can set us free

Rise my brothers we are blessed by steel
In my sword I trust
Arm yourselves the truth shall be revealed
In my sword I trust
Tyrants and cowards for metal you will kneel
In my sword I trust
Till justice and reason we'll wield
In my sword I trust

The sword that shivers in my hand
Do you have the might
To eat the putrid flesh
To drink the blood of the true one to blame
The time of change is here
Avail your blade

Rise my brothers we are blessed by steel
In my sword I trust
Arm yourselves the truth shall be revealed
In my sword I trust
Tyrants and cowards for metal you will kneel
In my sword I trust
Till justice and reason we'll wield
In my sword I trust

Leave your souls to your gods
Kneel, obey, follow their laws
Diseased and decayed, cherish their fate
This day I repay
Your love for fear come fate
Your love for fear come fate

Omen build me a fiery falcon
Pull your blade, a blazing shore
She'll never wait and may make war
Rest my hands and come to pray
But my life shan't go to waste
Grip the spirit that they turn on??
Upon the point, the point of our steel

Rise my brothers we are blessed by steel
In my sword I trust
Arm yourselves the truth shall be revealed
In my sword I trust
Tyrants and cowards for metal you will kneel
In my sword I trust
Till justice and reason we'll wield
In my sword I trust
In my sword I trust


03. Unsung Heroes

Music by Markus Toivonen
Lyrics by Sami Hinkka
Forgotten tomb hill
Unnamed graves
No light can reach there
Memories fade away

Only frozen soil
And eternal wind
Remember the sacrifice
Of those who are now buried in time

A Dauntless heart
A Righteous mind
No sign of fear
Cast aside
Left to die
Just one frozen tear

Unsung heroes
Forgotten valour
Unknown soldiers
Entombed in time

Only shadows grow
Where the forsaken lie
Hope buried in snow

A thousand scars
Regret none
But only the dead ones
have seen the end of war


04. Burning Leaves

Music by Markus Toivonen, Sami Hinkka, Petri Lindroos
Lyrics by Sami Hinkka
Pass all the hills everlasting
Fight against the evil
There are big wolves
From the north wind the darkening horizon
We will fight
Let them come
We will never retreat!
We will say
With all my hope
Protect the ancient tree
Their voices gone to far!
With the walls of nursery!

Burning leaves!
Black ashes on my eyes!
Cross my fears
Why? Ohohoh!
Burning leaves!
That path that reach to the sky!
The flame within me
Is gone!

Will light up the rest?
Dying souls
Somebody's coming closer
More flaming branches came from the sky
Their roots are torn to pieces
Right before my dying hit
I lay my eyes to the sky (to the sky)
As an eagle spreads its wings for the last time
He will be the old, the bird to die?

Burning leaves!
Black ashes on my eyes!
Cross my fears
Why? Ohohoh!
Burning leaves!
That path that reach to the sky!
The flame within me
Is gone!

Liekö enää päällä maan
Ainuttakaan joka muistaa
Lehdon tuon kauniin kaukaisen
Jonne tie vie jokainen
Kun kuolema vie viimeisen
Puu ja maailma ihmisten
Niin loppuu aikamme


05. Celestial Bond

Music by Markus Toivonen
Lyrics by Sami Hinkka
A long time ago I went to the shore
I whispered my wish to a breeze from the North
The wind took the wish high to the stars
Told them what I've missed with all my heart

I was mesmerized by the rolling tide
I lay on that shore and fazed into the skies
Like a shooting star, my dream was gone
I made up my mind
I don't want to wake up

When will time heal and fulfil the
dream of my heart?
When will we unite as one and light
our own star?

All these memories I will treasure in my heart
Words are so vain
A bond beyond quintessence

For a thousand lifetimes
I will wait to feel
A passing moment of bliss
To be embraced by silence


06. Retribution Shall Be Mine

Music by Markus Toivonen
Lyrics by Sami Hinkka
No sun rises today
No moon shares it's light
Eclipse of soul
Growing breach of faith

Pierced by bitter deception
Chained to the darkness
Left to rot with hate

I can't escape from this living hell
But in my dreams the justice dwells
Betrayers are torn apart
And my hate will fade away with their blood

My hate runs deep
In the waters of grudge and unforgiveness

Leniency is for the weak
I'd rather die than show you mercy
Slaughter is yet to come

Retribution shall be mine!
Oh Gods of vengeance, fill my heart!

This is mine
The one and final fight
I choose not to die
With these demons by my side


07. Star Queen (Celestial Bond Part II)

Music by Markus Toivonen, Sami Hinkka
Lyrics by Sami Hinkka
The traveller's heart is meant to be free
No obligations and soul redeemed
I knew that part wasn't for me
When I met my star queen

Born in the stars, like all of us
But can two paths start from one?
Unite again somewhere in time
And light the brightest star in the endless sky

Oh Queen of Stars
How long until dreams are fulfilled?

Years go by I thought I could forget
I lived in a lie, that's all I regret
It's better for a man to die by the sword
Than wither away with undying love

I wish that the wind will play with her hair
Touch her lips, tell I'll be there
Longing for the moment for eternity
Light of a thousand stars will always confront me


08. Pohjola

Music by Markus Toivonen, Sami Hinkka
Lyrics by Sami Hinkka, Markus Toivonen, Yrjö Koskinen
Luonto ponteva Pohjannaan!
Milloin taas hänen nänhdä saan?
Milloin saanenkaan kesä-yöllä
Nähdä kirkkaalla sädevyöllä
Ympäröityä taivoaan?
Milloin laineilta Pohjan vetten
Nähdä hohtehen, nähdä ett'en
Lansna unta ma nähnyt vaan? -
Milloin Pohjolan nähdä saan?

Onhan nytkin sen tunturit
Jylhät, korkeat, kaunihit;
Vielä kaiketi kosket kuohuu;
Totta vieläkin virrat vuoltuu
Syvin uurtehin halki maan?
Eikö merikin yhä vielä
Huhdo rannikkoamme siellä?
Myrskyn virtt' eikö kuulukkaan? -

Milloin, milloin sen nähdä saan?
Talvismaailman mahti uus',
Lumitannerten ihannus,
Mustat metsät ja synkät salot,
Revontulien tummat palot,
Nekin luontoa Phojanmaan.
Eikö kaikk' ole kannallansa?
Tokko mainio Pohjan kansa
Viel' on vanhassa viomassaan? -
Milloin Pohjolan nähdä saan?

Kansa vankka, mi muinaisin
Seisoi miehuuden mittehin,
Vaarat hiihteli, kynti merta,
Tokko nytkin on vanhallaan?
Tooko voinee se sodan tiellä
Altiiks henkensä antaa vielä
Estä armahan isänmaan? -
Milloin, milloin sen nähdä saan?



Pohjola, minun maa
Pohjaton, kaipuuni
Pohjannaula, mua johdata


09. Last Breath

Music & lyrics by Sami Hinkka
Lying on the ground
As battle rages on
Warm blood covers
The cold land of our fathers

Don't cry for me my son
Because I'm not the only one
Where I go you can't follow
This journey I will make all alone

I've bled so many times for this land
But this wound will claim my life
Death commands me to give my hand

Let not my people
Live under oppression
And remember the darker the night
The more beautiful is the morning's light

Fear no more
Just let go
Adore this world
Once more
The truth unfolds
In the Ancient Halls
Fear no more
Just let go

There is no shimmer of the light
In this pouring rain
I close my eyes
Has it all been in vain?


10. Passion, Proof, Power

Music by Markus Toivonen, Sami Hinkka
Lyrics by Sami Hinkka
Where to find the truth?
Questions linger through time
Unbreakable will and inquiring mind
Have always been the seeker's guide

The Reason as my sword
The Knowledge as my shield
I'll face my foes again and again
On the ancient battlefield

I can't deny what I've seen
So towards the great unknown
I must keep going on

Stop your quest
Or with fire you'll be cleansed
Confess...
Death...

Woe to the faith
Through dark centuries
The wait for the time
When all is revealed

Unbreakable
Stands through time
Dwells the proof of life
Eternal Earth of mine

Cleanse our souls
No good thoughts shall burn
Engulf the passion of life
Eternal Fire of mine

Carry it on
The ancient wisdom of mankind
Eternal Air of mine

Renew us within
Wash away
The remains of lies
Eternal Water of mine

Indivisible
Beyond death and life
The answer divine
Eternal Elements of mine


The gatekeeper of the knowledge
The One who was trusted the secrets
of time and space once said:
To know is your destination
To find is your possibility
And to search is your quest.

Your path has merged with the truth.
But yet you refuse to see it
It's easier to be afraid,
to be deceived, to be a sheep
Be aware, question them,
question yourself
Because once you see it,
you can never look away

Every man's
Horizon can change
But eternal skies
Will always stay the same

Like a new sun arises from winter's
cold and dark grave, it's unstoppable.

Keep your twisted beliefs
Sons and Daughters of Dawn are
calling me

The fire that burns my flesh
Shall light up the words I've said
The curse on my innocent name
Shall put all of your in shame

[People:]
"Hierhier, hier entlang, willkommen edle Herren!
Bei uns sind die Weiber schön, die Männer wild, es gibt reichlich zu essen, das beste Bier,
und am Ende des Tages werden wir eine weitere elende Hexe dem Feuer übergeben.
Lasst euch unterhalten, von weit gereisten Spielleuten, welche ebenfalls verbrannt werden, sollten sie ihre Spielzeit überziehen!"
Hahaha!
"Entschuldigen Sie bitte, wer spielt denn heute abend?"
"Ensiferrium und Finntroll aus Finnland!"
"Ja Wunderbar!"
[/people]

Woe to the man
Who disheartens the few
Who reach for the light
Who searches for the truth

I only have just one more wish
That this torch will be passed onto someone sentient like you
When your time comes,
don't lose your heart
Have faith and patience and trust in the
flame before passing it onto someone new

The greatest power of all
Will force their gods to fall
The greatest power of all
Embrace, illuminate all!

I am, you are, no one's slave
No man or god they have made


11. Bamboleo

Este amor llega asi esta manera
No tiene la culpa
Caballo le ven sabana
Porque muy depreciado,
Por eso no te perdon de llorar
Este amor llega asi esta manera
No tiene la culpa,
Amor de comprementa
Amor del mes pasado
Bebele, bembele, bembele

Bamboleo, bambolea
Porque mi vida, yo la prefiero vivir asi
Bamboleo, bambolea
Porque mi vida, yo la prefiero vivir asi
No tiene pardon de dios
Tu eres mi vida, la fortuna del destino
Pero el destino tendressa para dos
Lo mismo yo que ayer
Lo mismo soy yo
No te encuentro a l'abandon
Es imposible no te encuentro de verdad
Por eso un dia no cuentro si de nada
Lo mismo you que ayer
Yo pienso en ti

Bamboleo, bambolea
Porque mi vida, yo la prefiero vivir asi
Bamboleo, bambolea
Porque mi vida, yo la prefiero vivir asi

Bamboleo, bambolea
Porque mi vida, yo la prefiero vivir asi
Bamboleo, bambolea
Porque mi vida, yo la prefiero vivir asi
