War-band! Lyrics

2. War-band! (5:19)
War band! Of Raging Heathens
Moving Westwards - Like wolves
We are hungry! Seeking plunder
From the darkness - We shall come
Moonless night sky! Without a warning
We’ll emerge from – What they call hell
No mercy! Relentless pillage
Raping, enslaving – We do it well

Many years ago, I try to think back
A village in the winter, but my memory fades to black
My mother and father, I briefly recall
Their broken bodies lying red in the snow
Then a jaded memory of anger and pain
A journey to the east bound in iron chains
That’s all that I remember from my life before
From that moment onwards I was trained for war

War band! Of Raging Heathens
Moving Westwards - Like wolves
We are hungry! Seeking plunder
From the darkness - We shall come
Moonless night sky! Without a warning
We’ll emerge from – What they call hell
No mercy! Relentless pillage
Raping, enslaving – We do it well

Lurking in the woods with my new family
Feeling no remorse of impending atrocity
It’s happened before, it will happen again
The cycle of life turned by a wheel of pain
The blow of the horn and our swords are drawn
We charge to the village in a frenzied swarm
Flaming torches to their huts are thrown within
They awake and step outside now let the fun begin

War Band Hail!
War Band Hail!
War Band Hail!
War Band Hail!

War band! Executing swiftly!
A Killing ground – Without delay!
Fire burning! Women weeping!
Children screaming – Now our slaves!
Unwilling procession! We will lead them!
To their new life – So far away
But still their fate! Is in their own hands!
On the providing – They now obey!
