The Legacy of Sempach Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Intro - hole of time (2:35)
Brothers, the machine can see into the future
The machine can see into the past
You'll never see the light before
Then, dear friend, we will send you on a long journey
And this time journey will become very painful for you
There is a hole in the wall
Jump inside
Travel back into the year 1386
And tell us everything about the 13 (?)
Then you will become a member of us
Brothers, activate the machine
At the end of the journey, the horn of calling will open up (?)
2. Travelling to the past (5:08)
And the machine is moving, just above the time
The wheels of time are singing, and the years are passing by
Warriors of the Helvetic cross, standing in front of the line
I was sent by the sky, step on the break and stay

Abwarte...
Ushaute...
D johr lanke...
Zyt schanke...

If you ever forget this holy place, the legends are going to die
Used to be a fighter in this twilight place, for only to tell this tale

And the future was gone
Only darkness still hung around
The perfect sign for to come, fur ds cho...
I hope for a place
Where the winds are screaming so nice
Travelling through the time is tough

A bell rings in the wind
As my machine stopped in time

Now, I am telling you an ancient tale
A tale of ancient man
A man from a land not far away
Travelling to the past

From a year I came
The seeds of the slavery
Nothing can stop my way
Have seen it all before
It goes on forever and more
The time of another chapter is near

U d'Zuckunft isch gange... nume d'Dunkulheit hanget umenang!
The future... was gone... only darkness... hung around!

And the future was gone
Only darkness still hung around
The perfect sign for to come, fur ds cho...
I hope for a place
Where the winds are screaming so nice
Travelling through the time is tough

U d'Zuckunft isch gange... nume d'Dunkulheit hanget umenang!
The future... was gone... only darkness... hung around!
3. The quest (7:17)
Leopold's quest through Zofingen to Willsau started
On July the eighth on a summer day
Freedom now, for the Austrian king, my lords
He is taking the future on his own tale

Hail to the banner, spears and shields
The quest to Sempach, (in order) to fight

Dark cloudbank in the eastlands, silence before the storm
(The) Austrian lord is sending out his messengers
Commands have been given, hornsounds across the sky
The waiting has begun, under control of the night

Let us stay till the helmets are broken
We fight for Leopold's right

Quest to the battle
Of the Helvetic armies
The curse of the future
It goes along with you
Quest to the battle
Of the Helvetic armies
Pages of historical tales
Are telling you the ancient news

The machine drops me off at the forest nearby the pack
My hands are bleeding wounds, but the way must go on
I feel the steps of the Austrian knights on the ground
The landing was wrong, I can't wait for too long

Sang awag
It is the wrong place in the middle of these trees
Reis awag
To the territory with confederation breeze

Travelling away
Through the hole
To another place
Away from enemies
Of this time
To the city of lakes

Quest to the battle
Of the Helvetic armies
The curse of the future
It goes along with you
Quest to the battle
Of the Helvetic armies
Pages of historical tales
Are telling you the ancient news

Und I reise, cifach witer, an angere ort, as isch gschider
Schauter drucke, cifach witer, glichi sekunde, 1000m witer...

As isch jetz sowit, ig ha scho fasch gnue vo de reise dur die zyt
Uheiligi schmarze, die loh mir ke rueh, zum gluck ischs numme so wyt!
As isch jetz sowit, ig ha scho fasch gnue vo de reise dur die zyt
Uheiligi schmarze, die loh mir ke rueh, zum gluck ischs numme so wyt!
As isch jetz sowit, ig ha scho fasch gnue vo de reise dur die zyt

Quest to the battle
Of the Helvetic armies
The curse of the future
It goes along with you
Quest to the battle
Of the Helvetic armies
Pages of historical tales
Are telling you the ancient news

I'd go through the hole of time, where the lights are shining bright
Like a rebirth through a firewall
I feel my aching skin, he takes me to the other side
Somewhere at the lake
Between green meadows and people they pray
Lonely warrior, take a break...
I lost my soul in this place, like visions of a brave world
4. I lost my soul (6:48)
I'd travel through the hole of time, where the lights are shining bright (S liecht das schiint)
Like a rebirth through a firewall I feel my aching skin
He takes me to the other side somewhere at the lake (uf am See)
Between green meadows and people they pray
Lonely warrior - take a break...

I lost my soul in this place, like visions of (a) brave world
I lost my soul, verlorini seeu

Lands belonging to my mother, lies golden to my feet (Zu de fuess)
I want to stay forever here, but it's not very real
A cozy village on the lake side
In middle of a place (schwizer platz)
Knights with banners, shields and knives waiting for revenge

I lost my soul in this place, like visions of (a) brave world

In my life and in my brain
I would never travel again
Inside myself I was wrong
This is the right place to stay and to pray
In my life and in my brain
I would never travel again
Inside myself I was wrong
This is the right place to stay and to pray
...I lost my soul, verlorini seeu

I dam dorf vo de
Helvetische hit go z'wohne -
Das, das war doch racht
Numm reise dur die zyt
U hie blybe zum wohne
Jo das war nid schlacht
Sie luege zu de aute huser us
U gseh wytwag mi gstaut
Wurd haufe u kampfe
Dass es frei blybt eues huus
U freiheit fur's ganze land...
I bi gspannt...
I bi gspannt...
I bi gspannt...
I bi gspannt...
I bi gspannt

Verlorini seeu
Verlorini seeu
Verlorini seeu
Verlorini seeu
Verlorini seeu
Verlorini seeu
Verlorini seeu
Verlorini seeu

In my life and in my brain
I would never travel again
Inside myself I was wrong
This is the right place to stay and to pray
In my life and in my brain
I would never travel again
Inside myself I was wrong
This is the right place to stay and to pray
...I lost my soul
Verlorini seeu
5. Calla pallustris - the dragonroot (5:16)
Tears in her eyes, left home as heroes
They crossed the hills, they fought for glory
Warriors, when they returned, blamed for the damage
She is in your memory all the time

We will remember until the morning light
Calla palustris on your side
She is the guardian of the night
Between armour and skin of the Austrian knights

He died in the battle nearby the lake
Somewhere on a dirty ground
The skin must go, the seeds are rising
Somewhere on this dirty ground

We will remember until the morning light
Calla palustris on your side
She is the guardian of the night
Between armour and skin of the Austrian knights

The death brings you the seeds of the flowers
In the middle of an ancient land
The death brings you the seeds of the flowers
In the middle of an ancient land

We will remember until the morning light
Calla palustris on your side
She is the guardian of the night
Between armour and skin of the Austrian knights

When you are wandering through this town
Smell the flowers with the white crowns
Then you'll think it's never too late
They are the victims, damned to die

We will remember until the morning light
Calla palustris on your side
She is the guardian of the night
Between armour and skin of the Austrian knights
6. The fool.....and the king - part I (5:21)
The night is dark, the night is still
Somewhere on my way to the church hill
I saw the moonlight on this lake
I saw the fool in his secret cache

Welcome to the old forest, my king has deadly fears
My king has frozen tears, my lords must go back
Gods of this mountain, they have no understanding
Enemies in the distance, you must (go) back

The time has come - we all know, this is your only time
We all know where we have to go, on you way back home
This is the time of the last regret, your mission is now done
The opposition of (the) secret

Armies under different flags (in the morning sun)
Waiting down at the lake (the lake)
My king you must turn around now (around now)
The judgement day has passed by

He's the fool and you're the king
The enemies are growing stronger
He's the fool and you're the king
Helvetic spears are longer
He's the fool and you're the king
You are the liar
He's the fool and you're the king
I think it is your desire

Take your chance and turn the key (take it and turn the key)
Open the door to another history (another history)
Here's no future, no demand (no future no demand)
Here's the place for my dreamland

Welcome to the old forest, my king has deadly fears
My king has frozen tears, my lords must go back
Gods of this mountain, they have no understanding
Enemies in the distance, you must (go) back

He's the fool and you're the king
The enemies are growing stronger
He's the fool and you're the king
Helvetic spears are longer
He's the fool and you're the king
You are the liar
He's the fool and you're the king
I think it is your desire

Dr Heini vo Uri am Chonig si Narr
Dr Heini vo Uri u syni Wort mache klar
Dr Heini vo Uri macht am Chonig Bei
Dr Heini vo Uri seit oich got doch hei!

Welcome to the old forest, my king has deadly fears
My king has frozen tears, my lords must go back
Gods of this mountains, they have no understanding
Enemies in the distance, you must go back

He's the fool and you're the king
The enemies are growing stronger
He's the fool and you're the king
Helvetic spears are longer
He's the fool and you're the king
You are the liar
He's the fool and you're the king
I think it is your desire

He is the fool and you're the king
Desire
He is the fool and you're the king
Desire
He is the fool and you're the king
Desire
7. ........and the skulls - part II (5:40)
Warriors, you can't stay so far from home
In this confederation night, you must go or stand alone
The thunder is rising, take the last escape
Endless pain and fighting, this is (the) time to break

Tonight give up the battle of our destiny
Let us hear it now, man at arms died for eternity
The thunder is rising, take the last escape
Endless pain and fighting, this is (the) time to break
In pain you seek the way out now, how many miles away
Your country goes where your gods will pray, and children try to stay
...and gods will pray and children stay...
...and gods will pray now...
...and gods will pray and children stay...
...and gods will pray now...

Now, it is time to die, don't tell me why
You warriors say goodbye, get home and tell the lies
This is the bag with the heads of your friends
A warning from your enemies from the hilly lands

Brothers in arms, forgotten in the night
In fear and in pain, in this senseless fight
The thunder is rising, take the last escape
Endless pain and fighting, this is (the) time to break
In pain you seek the way out now, how many miles away
Your country goes where your gods will pray, and children try to stay
...and gods will pray and children stay...
...and gods will pray now...
...and gods will pray and children stay...
...and gods will pray now...

Now, it is time to die, don't tell me why
You warriors say goodbye, get home and tell the lies
This is the bag with the heads of your friends
A warning from your enemies from the hilly lands

Brueder ir Ruschtig
Vergasse i dr Nacht
Ir Angscht und i Schmarze
I dere sinnlose lange Schlacht
Blitz u Donner zicht jetz uf
Mit are riesige bose Macht
Zu de Gotter wei mir batte
Das dr Himu uber us wacht

...and gods will pray and children stay...
...and gods will pray now...
...and gods will pray and children stay...
...and gods will pray now...

Now, it is time to die, don't tell me why
You warriors say goodbye, get home and tell the lies
This is the bag with the heads of your friends
A warning from your enemies from the hilly lands

...and gods will pray and children stay...
...and gods will pray now...
...and gods will pray and children stay...
...and gods will pray
8. The warrior (6:35)
How many miles you walked away (bisch furtgloffe)
So many times you had to pray (hesch battet)
So many nights you didn't sleep (hesch nid chonne schlofe)
Far away in your own land (wyt awag i dym eigete Land)

Deep inside your strange mind (fromdi gedanke)
Works a force we've never seen (wo mir nie warde gseh)
It's not so bad, think (of it) all the time (dank immer dra)
We think you're the chosen one (du bisch dr userwautnig)

You're the master of the dreams
You're the king of the minds
Maybe you're the chosen one
Warrior of Heinrichswil

Now it's time for standing up (zyt zum ufschto)
Remember, you're not alone (bisch nid allei)
Spread it now, the tales of your life (gschichte vo dym labe)
And think... you're the chosen one (du bisch dr userwautnig)

You're the master of the dreams
You're the king of the minds
Maybe you're the chosen one
Warrior of Heinrichswil

Far away in a strange land
A warrior fights alone
The war against the armies of the force in his mind
And illusions must go

You're the master of the dreams
You're the king of the minds
Maybe you're the chosen one
Warrior of Heinrichswil

Lost in the tale of the forgotten ones
Searching for the lights that are going on

Lost in the tale of the forgotten ones
Searching for the lights that are going on
Behind the mask of normality
Searching the ways for reality

You're the master of the dreams
You're the king of the minds
Maybe you're the chosen one
Warrior of Heinrichswil

Now it's time for standing up (zyt zum ufschto)
Remember, you're not alone (bisch nid allei)
Spread it now, the tales of your life (gschichte vo dym labe)
And think... you're the chosen one (du bisch dr userwautnig)
9. We are kings (7:01)
Now it's time that my journey starts, my pain, my sins and the broken parts
This is the end, somewhere in time, and (my) machine stopped at the front, at the lines (at the lines)
The gods decided, what's right, what's wrong
Alone in this timehole I was lost
Sunlight shines that unleashed the storm
Time for the heroes, now it's time for rebirth (rebirth)

Fight against the armies of hate
Fight or it is too late
Fight against the armies of the lord
Fight with your Helvetic swords

Back as a man of the gods
As a hero in whom we trust
Immortal lands in the sky
I'm waiting for my time

Now it's time to say goodbye
A warrior in the front of the line
Take care of my wife and my son
In the next dimension I will come

A lane against enemies I will gain
With spears in my hands, until darkest night
A lane against enemies I will gain
For my land, for my son, and for my wife

We are kings, we are fighting through this time
We are kings, a man catches the spears in line
We are kings, he died for the future rimes
We are kings, these are the forgotten signs
We are kings, we are fighting through this time
We are kings, a man catches the spears in line
We are kings, he died for the future rimes
We are kings, these are the forgotten signs

The gods decided, what's right, what's wrong
Alone in this timehole I was lost
Sunlight shines that unleashed the storm
Time for the heroes, now it's time for rebirth

He fights the black to save the truth
He fights against the secret lies
The wall of enemies (he) will destroy
Fight with spears 'til they die

Back as a man of the gods
As a hero in whom we trust
Immortal lands in the sky
I'm waiting for my time

Now it's time to say goodbye
A warrior in the front of the line
Take care of my wife and my son
In the next dimension I will come

A lane against enemies I will gain
With spears in my hands, until darkest night
A lane against enemies I will gain
For my land, for my son, and for my wife

We are kings, we are fighting through this time
We are kings, a man catches the spears in line
We are kings, he died for the future rimes
We are kings, these are the forgotten signs
We are kings, we are fighting through this time
We are kings, a man catches the spears in line
We are kings, he died for the future rimes
We are kings, these are the forgotten signs
10. Return of the dragonslayer (9:08)
Now, the return of the dragonslayer is near
The warrior of the chosen one
The last hero under the sun
Immortal life so beautiful
Your pain won't leave your soul
With lots of spears, her facing the death
The fights are beginning here but the one man starts this war
Warrior, a son of the freedom
Warrior, you are not unknown

The first time you have spoken the holy words
I will die, I felt my own sword
And my journey is rushing through me like the blood deep in my veins
Here are the warriors of a small land, but I remember your name

Warrior, a son of the freedom
Warrior, you are not unknown
Warrior, a friend of (all) those I need
Warrior, you're never alone

With lots of spears, her facing the death
The fights are beginning here, but one man starts this war
The brave one tried to make this time, the time in a human lane
Don't cry, (try) to understand that I feel the pain

Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno
These are the words of the one
Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno
The last words of the one

Return of the dragonslayer
The warrior of the chosen ones
Return of the dragonslayer
The last hero under the sun
Return of the dragonslayer
Immortal life so beautiful
Return of the dragonslayer
Your pain won't leave your soul

With lots of spears, her facing the death
The fights are beginning here, but one man starts this war

Warrior, a son of the freedom
Warrior, you are not unknown
Warrior, a friend of (all) those I need
Warrior, you're never alone

Ir erschte Zyt hani die heilige Worter gsproche
I ha gseit, i wott starbe fur mi Sohn und mi Frou
Einzig mit mym Schwart i myre Hang
Wird ig die schwari Reis atratte
Aber dir, dir wardet mir gedanke
Ime chlyne Land e Kampfer
Wo fur immer e Heud wott blybe

The first time
When I saw you
I will die
For my son and for my wife
I will die
For my son and for my wife

The brave one tried to make this time in a human lane
Don't cry, (try) to understand that I feel the pain

Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno
These are the words of the one
Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno
The last words of the one

Return of the dragonslayer
The warrior of the chosen ones
Return of the dragonslayer
The last hero under the sun
Return of the dragonslayer
Immortal life so beautiful
Return of the dragonslayer
Your pain won't leave your soul
