Thousand Swords Lyrics

(5)
Submitted by level Tinfeer
1. Intro (1:35)
2. Blood of Christians on My Sword (8:05)
The frost tries to reach us
with its cruel, cold hands
the cold witheness hurts our eyes
and we still march with wind in the face.
We follow the trace of blood in the snow
yesterday we burnt two villages
we killed women and children
heads out of the bodies of priests
we impaled on our wooden socle

The blood of hideous monk
is still getting blacker on my axe
their temple burnt
and we fed a fire with their corpses
my brothers are marching silently
the great frost turns their hearts to ice
the warm blood will bring the life back to their bodies

Another christian village is near
those who escaped showed us the way
by the blood from their wounds
we must deal them a deathblow
before wolves get them
on the horizon behind us
the black smoke appears on the sky
on the hills, full of trees
wolves observe us
they´ll leave the hills and follow us
as soon as the day is over
3. Thousand Swords (6:32)
We attacked with thousand swords
our banners were streaming under clouds
at the gates of christian capitol
The wide river of blood was flowing.
We attacked with hate in our eyes

Their request for mercy was nothing for us
they had no respect for our ancestors
today is not a day for mercy.
We attacked and golden palaces collapsed.
Christ´s elected ones paradise was burning.
Their golden bells were tolling the last hour
The last hour of christian rulers in pagan Europe
We are just blessed soldiers
from the depths of unbaptized forests.
Barbarians in wolfish skins.
And we had pleasure to burn the Vatican
Gods returned and now they are with us.
Spirit of war possessed our souls.
Our swords want to fight with our moves.
Its a great feeling to spill the blood in the basilica.
Herds of ravens fly between the clouds
They´ll come to the earth when we go away
They´ll eat food we prepared
They´ll drink blood we have spilled

Epilogue:
The vengence will be cruel
blessed by gods and spirits.
In self defence of fatherland.
Vengence done by our hands
brining cruel death for enemies.
4. The Dark Battlefield (7:57)
Raptured with murder
thirsty for blood
I walk between the corpses of my enemies
My shield beats back the strikes
My sword crushes the heads
blood covers my face.
My scream reaches the sky
Our horde attacked from the hills
In the fog of dust and smoke,
enemy strewed us with arrows
few brave warriors died
the axes were shining horrible
Crossing with the swords
the warriors without shields
Had to die hopelessly
the dying men were screaming around
trampled by the fighting hordes
it was enough for me.
I was loosing my mind
But i still was killing...
The night came soon...
I heard a horrifying sound of horns
Our horsemanship will attack soon
We must leave the battlefield fast
Heil moor asferoon...
In the name of the moon
Under the heavy hooves
those who were too
strong for us will die...
5. The Time of Revenge (4:50)
6. Born for War (8:31)
I was a child
when they took me away from my family
I remember long and frosty winter
and people looking hopelessly for food
from this ancient time
our cruel lord ordered us
to look as dogs eat christian children
we were standing together and
cold wind was freezing our faces
our blood was hot
we learned to worship death
we were the children of his favourite herd
future warriors, future wolves
our cruel lord ordered us to drink human blood
ordered us to eat human flesh
I got my first sword
I couldnt take it up easy
But i had to take it up
because I would be meat for dogs
I know the true code of life
spartan way of life, and draconian laws
I've grown as a warrior
close to nature, close to roots
now i'm the cruel
the last of the cruel lords herd
When i was a child, i knew the cruelty
I learned to hate everything I loved.
7. Black Metal War (1:42)
8. To Die in Fight (5:41)
Cruel coldness turns my heart to ice
heavy snowy clouds,
covered the nightly sky
Snow is falling, wind is blowing
and its cold.
Blood in my veins got stopped,
woulded i await my last hour
hen the snow covers my body
when the icy ship takes me
to the land of the gods.
A dream makes union with reality
cold snow hurts my eyes
The forest is far from here
and my horse is dead
I lost my last battle
victory was so near....
in the snowy bed
I found my peace
Now I'm waiting for drackar
Gods promised me
it will come soon
Blood in my veins got stopped,
woulded i await my last hour
hen the snow covers my body
when the icy ship takes me
to the land of the gods.
A dream makes union with reality
cold snow hurts my eyes
The forest is far from here
and my horse is dead
I lost my last battle
victory was so near....
in the snowy bed
I found my peace
Now I'm waiting for drackar
Gods promised me
it will come soon
