A golden thread is drawn at the edge of the world The shadows of mist deprived of their veil, Like phantoms hunted by the morning sun The breeze of the dawn won’t awaken me From the sweetness of its caresses The end of times for a land of blood And the sky darkened The only violence I can accept Is the one of entwined bodies One day a man knocks at my door Asking me to fight to be free Never be a slave but die rebelious The only thing that came to me Was to run away To find a hole and hide there And shit in my pants! The only violence that will remain Is in my mind and protects me And even beyond war and death Fight to stay free! The end will not be for today, Death will have to come back another day As long as hope runs in my veins I hope so much to see green meadows again I only dream of sailing back to see again The far wild lands The white of the winter Covered by a bloody coat A world crying the tears Of its dead sun The limpid rivers soiled By the taste of death The theater of the absurd replayed Forever in my head! The end will not be for today Death will have to come back another day As long as hope runs in my veins I hope so much to see green meadows again I only dream of sailing back to see again The far wild lands Sailing back to far wild lands I only dream of sailing back to see again To see the far wild lands.

Enslaved 03:27
Fellow armsmen you must follow me I’m gonna get back my throne And what was mine take back From the usurpers They removed me, they reduced me Their crimes won’t be unpunished They reduced me, they removed me... Now the hunt begins My people enslaved and controled Waiting for a powerful king It was time for this kingdom! To call down the power of flames The kingdom needs a dragon To restore the ancient glory And live in peace! Destroy the dark foes I unleash the power of flames Follow the red banners Or burn forever...

Even if we are desarmed And that some Do not return Even if we are desarmed And that some ("We shall be...") Do not return ("Your memory...") And die, and never surrender Last chance for me to see her alive again Is to reveal him where is the hidding of Blind wisdom, Whistled Wind He will tear one by one all her limbs He will give her bones to the pigs If I don’t tell him now! "Drink and confess"... Oh yes, I remember, your mother don’t like only beer Oh yes it’s back to me, we both drank in the stable! Oh yes, I remember, she drank from my turtle neck! Oh yes it’s back to me, she wants more ‘n more... More and more she wants my dick! Last chance for you to leave safe and sound, or not! At night my banners will reach the borders to save us! And if the flames of wisdom don’t blind you all The stormy waters of the sea will be your last home If you stay here! "Drink and confess"... Oh yes, I remember, your mothers don’t like only beer Oh yes it’s back to me, we both drank in the stable! Oh yes, I remember, she drank from my turtle neck! Oh yes it’s back to me, she wants (hic) more ‘n more... More and more she wants my dick! Even if we are desarmed and that some Do not return Even if we are desarmed and that some We shall be... Do not return Your memory...

I spent my life dreaming To imagine the outside To discover the sunlight and see The stars in the sky To escape, from here below, Leave the night behind me And forget my past I’m nothing more than an elf, From the shallows of the earth I am only - A dark knight! The steel, the blood and the fear Erase my innocence I am just - The evil knight! My swords, my blood and my tears Will never feed hate Once on this new land My differences condemned me My purple eyes were drowning In their looks, with fear I spent the other part of my life Saving the oppressed To find out that I’m here Lost between two worlds I’m nothing more than an elf, For them, the traitor’s blood! I am only - A dark knight! My swords, my eyes and my fears Erase my innocence. I am just - The evil knight! My skin, my swords and your tears Will never feed hate!! After many years of torments In Underdark my homeland Exiled to find out my promised land With my only friend, so peacefull As cold as a stone, But so kind I was fleeing my kind for a dream Hoping to find some rest! After many centuries of fighting My body as bruised as my soul I passed on wisdom at the cost of my blood And the ring... For a right, For a right cause!!

Battle 07:50
Devoted to serve the crown I wanted to become a knight I became a guard, to defend our land But never see you anymore Will be harder than dying to me I will be back soon, to age out our souls I feel my heart beat When I fight again in the dragon’s lair But my heart will always stop for you I want to run away I want to meet you again Every night your work will be undone, Hoping for my return After riding for days Gone for so long and so far from you My heart burns to meet you again So much to tell you and the fear of losing you It haunted me My eyes light up when I see you The battle raged for days Taking our men into the night While the Gods festead on our blood Blushing on the hill At the dawn of the third day Deadly wounded by steel I still have to fight for you, until my last breath! Back to a lifeless home Stains on the ground A mark on the door Carved by a bloody blade "You know where to find us!" My friends let’s go back Time of revenge has just begun Gods let our women die on our dead land! I feel my heart beat When I fight again in the dragon’s lair But my heart will always stop for you I want to run away Every night to meet you again But I want to hear a storm of steel Making their flesh scream! The battle will be raging It will last for centuries I will never see my land Nor my beloved again... The blood will flow Innocent lives will be sacrificed And no one will pay for that... Welcome to the new world Prepare to fight and die We’re no longer alone And we are gonna win... Welcome to the new world Prepare to fight and die! We’re no longer alone And we are gonna win.

I wear on my finger The ring that will give me wisdom And will allow me to overcome barriers Leading to victory I hold between my fingers The lantern of the ferryman Able to keep you from losing your mind Or damn you for eternity I crossed the seas to find these relics Relying on old legends Beyond the known world and ignoring the dangers But wondering if I will come back... I will come back alive Wondering if I will come back... I will come back alive I met a dark-skinned elf To get a fir tree carved ring In a den of murderers I took the lantern with an eternal light I had to convince the celestial jailer To let me live And help me to fight the plague And allow me And let me hold his divine blade I had no idea that my aims Would be his wake-up call Frozen by centuries of sleep It was waiting for me...to come! But wondering if I will come back... I will come back alive Wondering if I will come back alive.

We have defended ourselves And fought together now for years In the fight always side by side Against armies of Lychs and Demons Wizards casting spells of terror Some highwaymen If we die, in the rising sun For a handful of people who still believe Even if the battle is lost In the evil tavern full off mercenaries and thieves I heard this beyond the rocky ridge In the heart of the mountain, in a maze of golden caves A sleeping guard living for centuries If we die, in the rising sun For a handful people who still believe Even if the battle is lost!! Find the blind wisdom His name is Whistled Wind The legend says that during the battle against the Gods The mighty breath of the beast would melt stones! Good luck for those who seek and find him After all this time could it only be a myth? If I die, in the morning sun I would be one of those who have failed for their beliefs Even if it’s fighting a losing battle Find the blind wisdom His name is Whistled Wind.

The tavern 10:44
Come on! Come on! Thirsty for tales and legends I have some new stories for you! Take a seat around me, eat and drink, fuck or fight But remember what I’m saying is true! Listen! Listen! Thirsty for myths and romances The adventure started when the world capsized Keep quiet when my words are serious And raise your pints when I sing a fucking chorus! They left behind half of the heart that was beating for them Keeping devotion, heat and wisdom But their thoughts, crossed by the breath of sadness, Tarnished their faith They set out, to cross the mountains Long journey on the winding path of the passes The high mountains were always covered with snow It was a long and difficult road Before they could reach the valley Following small brooks winding along the hills... At nightfall when the sky was starting to blaze They finally saw the white sandy beach... The sea was like silvered and the sound of the waves so calming They camped to drink and rest the horses Hidden in the bushes, maybe waiting to die in the freezing winter wind Their gazes lost and rocked by the rhythm of the waves Let out a glimmer of hope in the spray In the distance the silhouette of what appeared To be a small village was emerging The cold night was beginning to fall (*ind it wis kild*)... The throats are tight Their frozen lips quiver The dawn smokes her last pipe In silence, to hide the smell of death Today will be the last for some The drums begin to beat Weapons hit on shields The torment of their guts, Refraining from letting go! Tonight they will look for the faces they had by their side The ones they will have lost Shoke your pints - Scream for heroes The legend comes to life - When the ride ends Don’t disgrace them - So dry your tears To remember them - Sing that chorus with me! When war broke out, their fate turned dark As knights without shields In a maze of thoughts The shadows of a moonless night Moved around them, As for a last dance before taking them away The heavy curtain of guilt hindered their walk Memories washed away under a rain of doubts, Leaving only a puddle of lies, Diluting in a sea of indifference That night their dreams of knight stories When the dragons ruled, will fade away... During a nightmarish night Strange scenes clouded his mind There was a waterfall flush with the cliff Split by a rock in its middle, Breaking her hair in two To go towards a lake... and die Behind the curtain of foam Hidden in the hallow mountain Trapped in a marble altar She sparkled with a thousand lights He heard the call Of the celestial guardian’s blade He was so close to his aim... His hand on the orichalcum handle Trying to tear it off! Tentacles of thorns gripped his arms, Tearing his flesh to the bone The pain of the biting steel made him open his eyes... Shoke your pints - Scream for heroes The legend comes to life - When the ride ends Don’t disgrace them - So dry your tears To remember them - Sing that chorus with me! But everything won’t be dark Before leading his fighters to victory But all won’t remain dark in this world Even when he will have to go And if the dragons were to disappear And didn’t tell their dreams anymore There will remain, the minstrels To tell you all these stories! Shoke your pints - Scream for heroes The legend comes to life - When the ride ends Don’t disgrace them - So dry your tears To remember them - Sing that chorus with me! His evil side wanted to kill the dragon Keep the elixir and become the Lord of Lords He didn't care about the fate of men He didn’t care about the minstrel But for the wiseman, the dragon had to live To show him the end of the road Go back in time to find his true place Remove the celestial weapons from human hands Same world but centuries before Playing with magic to fool the future Back to the source and no longer, exist Nice people, those still standing, or even alive The story is gripping but comes to an end Remember, the sun might stop shining The day when death will bring this world to rest Don’t waste your time, Nor the donkeys neither the mills You have plenty of time before your final rest Don’t let anyone darken your skies... You have only one chance on this earth You only have one life on this earth But, you have no chance... To avoid your fate!

Not alone 05:58
I’m heading deep down the mountain Brandishing sword and magical lantern To light my path and free the shadows of darkness Crossing the corridors Of the deserted labyrinth And beginning to doubt the existence of the beast But I keep running through the ruins Where old dead are still hanging there... But I keep running across the caves Nothing or no one to stop me While I disappear into the heart of the earth The air is getting scarce And I can barely breathe my limbs are going numb with the cold All that’s missing is a black ink lake to cross An army of cursed skeletons to fight And it would be the perfect cliché... but nothing But I keep running through the ruins Where old dead are still hanging there... But I keep running across the caves Nothing or no one to stop me Several days wandering in these caves I’m losing my mind I hear like footsteps on heaps of gold I’m heading for that direction I hope to get to the point I forget about the clues That might remind me... who I am! And the challenge in the end... I’m running throught the maze of stone I feel bones breaking under my feet A draft is blowing out my light, Eyes... open in the darkness The shadows are watching each one Of my steps I can smell the breath of death, nearby... I can feel his burning breath of my face... I’m not alone anymore...

Abnegation 05:55
A candle glowing in the dark Some rays of light in the gloom What would a fairytale be Without a magic wand Let us lend an ear To the icy tale of the northwind About the mysteries of winter And it’s magical höly days When we have nothing more than our lives to give To save the ones we love Evidence is no longer a sacrifice It’s not dying But living through them forever Defy the gods Fighting through the flames From the highest sky To the darkest abyss We can win against everything Defy the gods Fighting through the flames From the highest sky To the darkest abyss Facing death we’ll always lose! Back by the magic of a spell That I had created long ago I protected my secret Becoming amnesic I had to redraw the way To the secret order Burried deep in my mind So that at last the Lord With the mighty blazing blow From my spirit sets me free! When we have nothing more than our lives to give To save the ones we love Evidence is no longer a sacrifice It’s not dying But living through them forever Defy the gods Fighting through the flames From the highest sky To the darkest abyss We can win against everything Defy the gods Fighting through the flames From the highest sky To the darkest abyss Facing death we’ll always lose! My life is not a quest Leading to the afterlife. And all along my existence I have been loocking for wisdom To find my way I didn’t think that one day Blind, I could open my eyes And find the strenght To let go and walk away ! When we have nothing more than our lives to give...

We cross the woods Torches bring the flames Leaves have fallen Flames free the soul And the branches in fire Will be your last bed Our last night will be endless But the end is only a new beginning He was the light When we were in the dark... No matter who you were Where you came from And neither what you did To improve this world You were betrayed and hurt But the ones who remain tonight Are there for you You were the light When we were in the dark... Now the breeze is rocking the ashes And fall asleep in its arms In a final dance stolen on a night... Without tomorrow They fly away Leaving only a bite in the heart You’ll be the light when we are in the dark...
