Unsung Heroes Lyrics

Submitted by level Tinfeer
1. Symbols
2. In My Sword I Trust
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
3. Unsung Heroes
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
4. Burning Leaves
Passing aeons
Everlasting fight against the Evil
Their army grows on and on
With the darkening horizon

I'm not afraid, let them come
I will never retreat
I will stand and hold my ground
Protect the Ancient Tree

The defence is doomed to fall
With the world I used to know

Burning leaves
Turn to ash before my eyes
Crushed my dreams
Long gone
Burning leaves
Dead branches reach to the sky
The flame within me
Is gone

On the light of the last dying star
Serpents crawl closer
All five branches, cursed from the start
And roots are torn to pieces

Right before my dying breath
I lay my eyes to the sky
As an eagle spreads its wings for the last time
Leaving me, the oak, the grove, to die

Liekö enää päällä maan ainuttakaan joka muistaa
Lehdon tuon kauniin kaukaisen,
jonne vie tie jokainen
Kun kuolee vartija viimeinen, keskellä liekkien
ikuinen puu ja maailma ihmisten
Niin loppuu aikamme

I wonder if any longer someone walks
the Earth who recalls
That fair Grove afar, where all paths meet
As the last of the guardians falls, ablaze the
Eternal Tree and Domain of Man
Thus ends Our Time
5. Celestial Bond
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
6. Retribution Shall Be Mine
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
7. Star Queen (Celestial Bond part II)
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
8. Pohjola
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
9. Last Breath
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
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

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

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

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

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
