Metsutan - Songs of the Void Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. 血ノ舞 – Chi no Odori (1:51)
Instrumental
2. Strike! (4:50)
He stands
In the form so total
Even Gods are watching in awe
Essence of calm pure concentration
and perfect void of the mind
Everything
From the years of training
Will array in a technique pure
Years dancing with steel we'll see
WHAT HE HAS BEEN LIVING FOR!

RISE UP!
and see beyond the eyes

RISE UP!
and gain the focus which
gives no room for ties

Sound hands
holding the blade
eyes fixed to his grip inferior
Roar of the battle
withers to a silent clatter
TIME
slows down to motion
where stir of the dust can be seen
One year - a second
in this moment of
BLOODY SCENE

And he moves...
with the swift pace unrivaled
unseen by the aspirants' eyes
And he knows
in his heart so unbridled
That he'll soon execute
the flawless
STRIKE!

STRIKE!

STRIKE!
through the laws earthly
BREAK THEM!
STRIKE!
with the power of a content mind

First
the silence breaks yet time stands still
He flows
through the air
through the adversary's form

THROUGH ENEMY'S FRAME

Perfect execution
leaving in scorn
Halved shadow of a man
Startled confusion
starting to breed
in the midst of the horde

And he moves
with the swift pace unrivaled
unseen by the aspirants' eyes
And he knows
in his heart so unbridled
That he'll soon execute
the flawless
STRIKE!

STRIKE!

STRIKE!
through the laws eathly
BREAK THEM!
STRIKE!
with the power of a content mind
3. Exile of the Floating World (4:12)
Canvas painted with blood
Images of tainted mortals
Inspiration bizarre
thrives in misery

I've killed my creations
with savage executions
I've given birth to death
with the brush as a vessel of pain

Representations of violence
follow the loss of innocence

Havoc enclosing the cities
violent notions in motion
These times shall be produced
in my murders with a verse

I've seen my creations
reach the floating world
These days provoke to create
but new insight just blinds the way

The ways of late will take control
prestige of the craft will lose its soul

Gods! Please witness this offense by men!
Slaying of genuine expression begins

Exiled - by false refinement crushing the worth of art
Exiled - by times renewal means to kill the old
Insanity still grows within

No-one can see what I can
I dance under the moon cursing the sun

Solo: Jouni, Mikko

Respect for my conception is gone,
deficient approach to all that is done
I'm drifting away from reality,
Aspects of the moon - total vanity

Gods! Please witness this offense by men!
Slaying of genuine expression begins

Exiled - by false refinement crushing the worth of art
Exiled - by times renewal means to kill the old
I've fallen from the floating world
4. Sakura Omen (7:31)
There is an ill wind
Howling through walls
Voice is grim
Calling my name
Inception of sorrow and hate
Darkness is claiming
The rays of the sun
I cant recognize what I´ve become
(Sakura slowly fall from the sky)
(Glowing, faint, dark)
Bushido´s bearing
Nothing but words
Shadows of shame draw me
Imposter, a traitor of blade
The depths of the bleak mist
The realm of the void
I heard Izanami´s voice hollow
Luring, but I won´t follow
Silently!
The rivers stay still
Nor light nor dark emerges
From the nothingness
Silently!
My sword aims for the kill
Dancing like a petal in storm
Cutting through blight
Sakura slowly fall from the sky
Glowing, faint, dark, light
Stillness is gained
Only through the absence of dread
Fear of death is nothing but an obstacle
for a perfect strike
My mind is trying to keep me sane
I´ll run away
My heart is bound to meet my fate
Dying through my foes diving blade
If one only studies the strategy of war
One only becomes a mere student of war
Is the only way to evade the fall
Sacred words of will and dare
Now fade away
The meaning for my path is vague
And in my rage
I´ll take the trail to my disgrace
To run and hide
But my soul is bound to see the end
To fall
And Die
Silently!
The rivers stay still
Nor light nor dark emerges
From the nothingness
Silently!
My sword aims for the kill
Dancing like a petal in storm
Yet now crushed to shards
Sakura slowly fall from the sky
Glowing, bloodred light
Izanami revealed
Her face torn and lurid
Depths revealing under
All oaths broken
Burnt blossoms on the ground
I should have seen the true
Sakura omen!
Horizon with these abnormal sights
Disfigured beings
Screaming gods
Yet I embrace my fate
My downfall
For the battle of mind and flesh
Is now gone
Redemption is done!
5. 劍聖 – Kensei (5:29)
The call for a challenge heard
From dishonored, untried man
Now eyes closed in silence he waits
For the moment to reign bringing rival to shame
Young yet fire-hearted and ready to sacrifice all
Through challenges built on his path
He'll never give in for the sickness of wrath

His destiny shall be aflame through honors affair

The feat which begins now
Shall echo in all coming times
Scriptures for the art of Ken
Teachings of heart, life's true reward
Hidden in a gust of wind
Is the truth that makes us see
We aren't here to glorify our being
We're here out of mercy to be

Alive!

By the scars of battles fought for years
He still recalls the fight
The fight that banished his fear to die

Immortal fable shall be born
The true aspect for a sword
Youth conceded for a path
Which shall take all and everything he's ever had

Dedication – life sacrificed to a cause
Damnation – awaits those who cross his laws

[Solo: Jouni, Mikko]

Ken-sei!

By the scars of battles fought for years
He still recalls the fight
The fight that banished his fear to die
Every moment in his life has lead to this
The true revelation of it all
As he writes down the thesis of how to never fall

Enshrined views of the adept
Will forever inspire them all
Yet death has claimed his body
His spirit has been reborn!
6. Our Voice Shall Be Heard (5:43)
Inhuman greed over worthless gain
Spiteful aim to reign over hallowed
Despite the signs so clear of the godless bane
And the forthcoming outcome of deprivation

They'll shiver as their reverence grows thin
They'll hear our screams when they sleep
As the last home of ours is destroyed
We'll haul their lands to the yomi's void

Kutabare, kiero!

Echoes haunt the shrines in the vale
As greed overcomes the sense of faith
Hands ruled by craving overblown
Commence to raze our sacred stone

Now we breed in the corners of the night
Inside the walls and in their mind.
"Our being glares from all things true
From lanterns and kettles to shadows and rooms..."

Their blood will soak the hallow ground
This is our voice, it shall be heard
When the night turns to cavort of chaos and gore
Spirits shall curse this land forevermore

[Solo: Mikko]

Shattered to the ground our abode
The last hearth of life, now burning with rage
Oh, how Otoroshi cries, duty eternal destroyed
Never shall man roam this land for we are their deaths convoy

Their blood will soak the hallow ground
This is our voice, it shall be heard
When the night turns to cavort of chaos and gore
Spirits shall curse this land forevermore

Kutabare, kiero!
Shinitamae, kiero!
Kutabare, kiero!
Konoyo wo deteyuke!

Our voice shall be heard!
7. 月明 – Tsukiakari (8:05)
Years obliging code of a tyrant
Whose honor and worth grows grim
All weak to counter verdicts so blatant
Innocent blood wasted to the ground
I've seen thousands
Follow his orders corrupt
I've served the demon as his right hand
And my time as a mere puppet is gone

The spirits of the buried
Please witness this forthcoming deed
Tonight my blood shall reveal the lost way
No longer shall I obey
Even though I might die in vain...

Shadows form the gathering of deceased
As the stage for the deed is set
Life given to build a novel heart
For a man who has lost his own... so long ago

As the last branch of autumn grows barren
He is enclosed by the shades of the fallen...

To see this moment of sincere atonement
Banquet of Yurei are dancing here tonight

[Solo: Mikko, Jouni, Mikko, Jouni, Jouni, Mikko]

Silence surrounding the outskirts
Eyes of the wraiths staring from the dark
Kneeling and facing this twilight,
I'll use my blade for the last time

The spirits of the deceased
Please witness this forthcoming deed
Tonight my blood shall reveal the lost way
And save his soul from astray
Even though I might die in vain...

Shadows draw the gathering of deceased
As my shaking hands guide my sword towards me
Life given to mend a broken heart
For a man who has lost his own so long ago

Fifty years migration of disgrace
Oh how I hope my demise will bring some peace
In the heart so bitter and so cold
I know this day won't ensure the change
But I fathom my story shall be told

Please repent...
8. Warriors of Yama (3:07)
Instrumental
9. Victory Grounds Nothing (3:20)
The breeze wipes the fields and trees and sings
for the fallen and those who keep on returning to battlings
One cup of tea, the deer scarer's silent note
Harmony within withdraws the restless soul

Riding till the ancestors holler from far beyond
These years turn to days with the buoyant dawn
Enlightenment gained by the strain resonates back
to everything that mind discerns, nothing stays back

Follow!
Conceive!

The art of life, art of ken

Sensou!
Heiwa!

Subete ga owaru

Age of strife has finally turned away
Fear so strong and sound fades to bliss of the day
Bloodstains on the sword will scene the tale
manifold test of might, honor, verdict and pain

Solo: Jouni, Mikko

Follow!
Conceive!

The art of life, art of ken

Sensou!
Heiwa!

Subete ga owaru

Age of strife has finally turned away
Fear so strong and sound fades to bliss of the day
Bloodstains on the sword will scene the tale
manifold test of might, honor, verdict and pain
10. Bloodred Shores of Enoshima (11:23)
Act I - 五頭龍 - Gozuryu

The sea jars is dread
Profane sentence from above
The glance of a shade - SHI NO KAGE
Absorbs the vigor of the earth

Watching still with eyes fixed to sky,
clouds shift away from the serpents tour
Roaming over land like a caliginous storm
The shriek of his ire leaves all ears torn

Knees bent down, ovations, desperate cries
The five archs disdaining the awe
All must perish on his herald of might
The land covered in red, the shores all alike

The souls given for the vile have been remarked
the shadow of the beast moves to south
Heavens turn away for the grand display
nothing rivals the vastness of this day

Act 2 - The Chord Of A Goddess

Waves break the cliffs and the wind grows everstrong
The dawn turns to night and in a moment back to light (ten-thousand times)

Celestial yet unnerving scene for everyone
But the call of a sudden faint sound draws our hearts and grit unbreakable

The ring of Benzaiten's note (Virtuous)
save us from damnations route
When the will of a man is only bound to dissolve
Paramount shall be the ways of the gods

Earth, fire, water in gale
Bow for the goddess and drake
Earth, wind, fire and rain
Bow for the goddess, please banish our bane

Act 3 - Divine Affection

Estranged for decades the beast wept,
for the love for a monster is unrenowned
Deranged by the closing isolation,
burning hatred grew unmatched
And now accompanied by a heavenly song
he gazes at the goddess in her abode
"Oh fair bringer of everflowing unison
would your enticing hands ever embrace me"

Act 4 - The Fury Of The Five

You whore! How dare you decline my ardor?
You're nothing for you are one - WE ARE FIVE
You shall burn like those mortals in their worthless heaven
Witness as we rip your throne you foul raven!

Flames reached the firmament
as he charged to slay her holiness
Moments away from a fatal blow
his mind was filled with regret

Act 5 - 龍口山 - Tatsu-no-kuchi Yama

Repentance finally patched his remnants of grace
thousand years of slaying our kind
She spoke with a voice gentle like a morning dew
every word a painting - harmony so true

All five bowed down, tears shed to ground
The beast set away facing south
Devotedly watching her world from the shores
fading to the ground, the mountain of...

Remorse...

The ring of Benzaiten's note (Glorious)
saved us from damnations route
When the will of a man was bound to dissolve
All witnessed the ways of the gods

Earth, fire, water in gale
Bow for the goddess and drake
Earth, wind, fire and rain
Bow for the goddess, how banish our bane
