Shogunate Macabre Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Jikininki (5:14)
They rose from the night ; shouldn't ever been born
Ghouls from the lives that ended so torn
Cursed for the decayed souls they once had
Dishonored warriors no eyes can be laid..

Upon these times of fear and hate
The shadows twisted form on the walls
Upon these times of sin and retributions unclaimed
The spirits will march in the night
Wretched spirits in the night

Despair forms a darkness solid on a torn empire
Spectres roam all around the land
Beings unspoken gathered here from afar

No redemption
Doomed to scavenge!

No freedom
Gods revenge!

Shackles remain on the fallen

No redemption!
No redemption!

Hatred pierces the hearts of men
Bringing down the August Star Of Heaven
Now cursed will be all that once was pure
No forgiveness shall be given..

Upon these times of fear and hate
The shadows twisted form on the walls
Upon these times of sin and retributions unclaimed
The spirits will march in the night
Wretched spirits in the night

Despair forms a darkness solid on a torn empire
Spectres roam all around the land
Beings unspoken gathered here from afar

No redemption
Doomed to scavenge!

No freedom
Gods revenge!

Shackles remain on the fallen

No redemption!
No redemption!
2. Hold the Sword (5:27)
Behold the signs of the never-ending war
the furious screams of the gods
As the nightfall sets to the distance
the blood f the warriors lights the sky
This moment is ready to be ruined,
by those who dishonor the blade
As he looks into their eyes he sees fear;
the bleeding wounds are no excuse

No excuse!

Even those who lead the way,
show fear in their hearts
Time has come for the One to rise
to show where courage is, when it can't be found

"The birth of the child of war,
the one who will define the way,
for those who shall be carrying the blade till the end of days"

Fate only smiles to the wise
who put themselves aside
Who are ready to die, embrace the form
of honor in it's purest form,
the honor of dying,
as you're holding the sword

Fight!
Like the last man in the night,
holding the front alone, and the
Fear!
Shall be no more if the one's prepared
to hold the sword
Hold the sword!

Fight!
Like the last man in the night,
holding the front alone, and the
Fear!
Shall be no more if the one's prepared
to hold the sword
Hold the sword!

Tales shall be written in his honor, his
cause will define a man. The strongest of all
will bow to him, the child of the god of war.
3. Fallen Amaterasu (5:11)
Left to rot by our actions unspoken
Her flesh consumed by times of ignorance
No-one gave her glory for the light she brought upon us
Our fates sealed by her hatred burning forever

Flames upon myself
for I didn't bow for her brightness

No food grows in the land burnt to ashes
No water flows in a world where her fury has ripped soil in half

Please hear our cries, forgive us oh goddess
Tears in your eyes, shame on us oh goddess

Fallen
The goddess of sun
Fallen
The mistress of light
Fallen by our souls
which gave her no hope
Fallen by your eyes
which gave her only lies

The goddess of sun
We'll see thy be done
We serve you righteous one

Please hear our cries, forgive us oh goddess
Tears in your eyes, shame on us oh goddess

Fallen
The goddess of sun
Fallen
The mistress of light
Fallen by our souls
which gave her no hope
Fallen by your eyes
which gave her only lies
4. One Man's Burden (4:26)
5. Kappa (5:16)
Screams from deep below,
the foul air smells of death
The townsfolk gathered to spray
for the last hours of their lives

As the night falls, fear grows
locked doors won't hold back
the one craves for
fresh human blood and your newborn children

The sacrifices weren't enough,
to keep it in it's watery realm
Judging the fate of all,
this being twisted now rises

When the night falls demise man
cannot be put aside
No mercy upon our kind,
when the skin scaled is upon sight, the time has come to die

From the depth of the waters, the child of river will rise
Lifeless eyes of the creature reflect the dark of the night
Bring yourselves for the Kappa, the ancient lord of black waters
Bring your children for the Kappa, fresh human blood for the Kappa

The last ones running like hell,
hunted, scattered and scared
The ground is stained red
as it pursues forth to kill

Savaging the last of the women,
crunching remains of the men
Ripping remaining pieces of their flesh
leaving living ones choking in their own blood

From the depth of the waters, the child of river will rise
Lifeless eyes of the creature reflect the dark of the night
Bring yourselves for the Kappa, the ancient lord of black waters
Bring your children for the Kappa, fresh human blood for the Kappa
6. Lady of the Wind (6:50)
Frozen figure stands in the storm
Flakes of snow embrace
The essence of her earthly form
Her eerie song heard
Through dales and mountains far away
Brings a curse on those who dare to listen

Floating above the plains
She wanders in her realm
Hearing screams of her prey draw closer
She gazes upon the fields
Where battle rages eternally
Waiting for warriors weakened to fall in her arms

In their eyes they saw her presence grim
Float above the ice
Wounded still they crawled towards her call
They hoped to find salvation
From her arms, white and pure
But the storm grew strong as they closed her figure
Cursed be this woman
The Lady of the Wind

Night casts its shadow
On the field of battle
Few still breathing
But the air turns cold

She appeared like a spirit of death
Blizzard veil in ground around her
Embracing the last of the living
With her hands, young and cold as ice

In our eyes we saw her presence grim
Float above the ice
Wounded still we crawled towards her call
We hoped to find salvation
From her arms, white and pure
But the storm grew strong as we closed her figure
Cursed be this woman
The Lady of the Wind

In our eyes we saw her presence grim
Float above the ice
Wounded still we crawled towards her call
We hoped to find salvation
From her arms, white and pure
As we reached her gown we felt her hands
Slowly sweeping our lives away
7. Unrestrained (3:25)
A haze of doubt surrounds my thoughts as I hide
from my fate, for I'm not ready to die
I've given my heart and my soul for my sword,
but the path seems obscured
was the vow I've given for my life absolute lie

Shameful create a void
tearing me down

I try to reach my pride
But I just run
I try to be so strong,
but I fail

One must never flee, (if the world is burning)
you will find a comrade of your blade, do not hesitate
One must never fall, (for the views of the weak)
by giving your blood for the steel, you're reborn, saved, unrestrained

The end of the line the end of me draws nigh
Rage flows through me as I wonder why
I cannot hold my hate, I'm condemned in shame
For the code of war I am merely a man

Shameful create a void
tearing me down

One must never flee, (if the world is burning)
you will find a comrade of your blade, do not hesitate
One must never fall, (for the views of the weak)
by giving your blood for the steel, you're reborn, saved, unrestrained
8. Upon My Honor (10:01)
Prominent I stand as I lead my men to war
Wich banners held high " we'll waste 'em all" I swore
I seek within myself, find no fear as we march
God of eight banners by our side, the soil beneath our feet will parch

Ahead!
I scream as we draw our swords

Tonight!
Death claims every single soul
but mine

The blood stains the ground
But upon my honor I'll return!
The blades cut so deep
But upon my honor I'll return!
Five thousand arrows pierce me
But upon my honor I'll return!
The light before me fades away
But upon my honor I'll return!
Victorious we'll return!

Impaled I stand they
want to see me fall
Their hands tremble,
I'm ready to face 'em all
Smile on my face, I approach
their formation weak
One by one they turn around,
scared, I made them retreat

"The cries of men held a sweet promise
of their defeat
I walked among the chaos witnessing
the August Star Of Heaven coming down
The earth shook as he laid his feet to the ground
watching me with pride, for I brought him
a true harmony of blood"

Ahead!
I scream as we wield our swords

Hold the line!
I shout as we face their hordes
Ahead!
I scream with blood filled lungs

Tonight!
We will claim every soul
with pride

The blood stains the ground

The blades cut so deep

Five thousand arrows pierce me
But upon my honor I'll return!
The light before me fades away
But upon my honor I'll return!
Victorious we'll return!
