1. Elder Blood (5:57)
Ohhhhhh
Run away… Run away… Run away…

Run away save our souls
Run away, run forevermore
Cast off fears – There is hope
War is raging like never before

Deep into the song, (...There's an evil hunting you...)
Just went to the front
With a fearless heart
From the no-man land to the Isle of damned
Ready for our last stand

Pray and hope to a god unknown
We shall find glory or death alone
Trying to hold my strength tonight
My heart longing to bring you home

White frost is upon us
Vile and cold
Terror, war and hunger
Shall unfold
Prophecies and legends
Speak of hope
Find the one who’s born of
Elder blood

Run Away, Riding fast
Run away, run forevermore
Hunt us down, marching through the dark
Hunger, blood and woe, the price of war

Deep into the song, (...There's an evil hunting you...)
Just went to the front
With a fearless heart
Darkness comes, raise your swords
Our power shall be known

Pray and hope to the flame of old
While all gods turn their back on all
Is there anyone to bring light?
Stand our ground to believe and fight

White frost is upon us
Vile and cold
Terror, war and hunger
Shall unfold
Prophecies and legends
Speak of hope
Find the one who’s born of
Elder blood
2. Together We March (5:18)
Sleepless, in self-denial
Our hearts on fire towards a worthless deed
Fighting for just more power
Burning desire, to end this kill -
But damned to carry on

The cold metal feel

Kingdoms rose and slowly crumbled all at the whim of this sentient steel,
Many proud heroes were cruelly humbled blinded by the sword's appeal

Betrayed, Father we are
Still in this night together we rise
Let down again, Fathers and sons
Grab men your hearts together we march

As the lightning strikes the people turn to dust and life breaks down
When we look over the burned earth at the chards and blistered scars
Then at last there in the openness as we learn the horrid truth
That the power of steel compelled it and burned down our home and roof

Betrayed, Father we are
Still in this night together we rise
Let down again, Fathers and sons
Grab men your hearts together we march

We shall be free once more

Live by the sword
Die by the sword
Kill by the sword
Free by the sword
By the sword

We'll make our stand Until the End

As the lightning strikes the people turn to dust and life breaks down
When we look over the burned earth at the chards and blistered scars
Then at last there in the openness as we learn the horrid truth
That the power of steel compelled it and burned down our home and roof

Hear me, Fathers and sons
Still in this night together we rise
This is the end, finally free
Grab men your hearts together we march
3. Gravewalker (6:01)
Since the last alliance
Between men and elves
One could say threat is but gone
Though the voice of darkness
Shall be heard once more
Black Gate falls before the dawn

Sacrifice, blood and bone shall be offered (No!)
May you come and emerge as a shadow (I’m right here my son)
What is this place? Am I dead?
You are cursed, cast adrift in between worlds (Lies!)
Between light and the dark you’re condemned to wander (I’ve lost everyone)
How to break this curse?

Banished from death to fight and slay
Mordor’s shadow falls within your wake
To avenge and be free, to find your way
Peace and honor shall be yours someday
Gravewalker

In the land of Mordor
Where the shadows lie
No, the dark lord shall not hide

We shall battle the Black Hand of Sauron (Die!)
Through the blackness of night we shall undo the spell (Vengeance through the steel)
I shall not bend to this woe
I remember my past full of sorrow (Traitor!)
I remember my name, I remember my pain (I vow revenge!)
Ages ago

Banished from death to fight and slay
Mordor’s shadow falls within your wake
To avenge and be free, to find your way
Peace and honor shall be yours someday
4. The Undefeated Gaul (4:20)
Capua, Shall I Begin?

He's known by his sword
With purpose to fight and defy
He's known by his shield
A fortress for those by his side
He's known by his glory
Far and wide

Rage on the battle
Burning beyond control

All dread before his might
Ad Gloriam
The champion standing tall
Death and honor calls
Ad Victoriam
The Undefeated Gaul

Like a thunderstorm
A shadow descents from the North
Unforgiving swarm,
Upon Rome

Rage on the battle
raising a furious show

All dread before his might
Ad gloriam
The champion standing tall
Death and honor calls
Ad victoriam
The Undefeated Gaul

Ad gladium
Arte et marte
Ad honorem
Shall I begin?

All dread before his might
Ad gloriam
The champion standing tall
Death and honor calls
Ad victoriam
The Undefeated Gaul
5. An Adventure Song (5:36)
Lai la lee lai...

In the throne room a man
Receives the old king's blessing
All the hope of the realm
In his shoulders resting

Oh
Husband and father
Oh
Hero of honor

Heroes depart on a journey they go
Let all the bards of the kingdom know
Sing it with heart, sing it loud, sing it strong
An adventure song

Grievous news reached home
The hero has fallen
But where father has failed
Son will prevail

Oh
He is so young
Oh
But his heart is strong

Heroes depart on a journey they go
Let all the bards of the kingdom know
Sing it with heart, sing it loud, sing it strong
An adventure song

Lai la lee lai...

And as he walks through plains and hills
His heart is turned to home
Is this the first and final quest?
Can just a child the kingdom save?

And as the dawn renews his soul
With him his loyal friends
To fight and stop the archfiend's plan
Behold the child becomes a man

Through dark plains, valleys and hills
Across the seven seas
Blaze with might to battle
Fight and slay Baramos

Heroes depart on a journey they go
Let all the bards of the kingdom know
Sing it with heart, sing it loud, sing it strong
An adventure song

Lai la lee lai...
6. Freedom is not Negotiable (4:51)
Come with me
Into the eye of the storm
Find me there
With bloody blades still warm

They want us to believe that we can never be free
Yet now we show them all what they could not foresee

A slave's desire
Can be a trembling modest spark
Yet lits the fire
A blazing light of hope defying the dark

Into the heart of despair courageous we ride
I see it clear now
For freedom is not negotiable
Against the tyrant we dare to rise and defy
Burn me and lash me
My freedom is not negotiable

Your own fear
The greatest shackle of them all
Opened eyes
The key to tyrants fall

They want us to believe that we can never be free
Yet now we show them all what they could not foresee

Into the heart of despair courageous we ride
I see it clear now
For freedom is not negotiable
Against the tyrant we dare to rise and defy
Burn me and lash me
My freedom is not negotiable

Hic manebimus optime
Libertas quae sera tamen

Into the heart of despair courageous we ride
I see it clear now
For freedom is not negotiable
Against the tyrant we dare to rise and defy
Burn me and lash me
My freedom is not negotiable

Into the heart of despair courageous we ride
It is so clear now
Freedom is not negotiable
Against the tyrant we dare to rise and defy
Slay me, destroy me
My freedom is not negotiable
7. Nostos (2:56)
The night is falling in silence
Waking up the spirits of the sea.
In peace I am closing my eyes
Praying to the Lord His promise to keep.

Thinking of the life
That I didn't follow
The green meadows back home.

After thirty days in the water
I can finally see my home
Holy star of the mystical sunset
Oh my Lord I can sense my North

I was in fear and I was in awe
But I survived this unjust war.

Suddenly a roar of thunder
And our ship is losing control.
Here comes another stormnight
Waves are strong but so is my soul.

Time travels back
To my precious childhood.
My father whispers "valour"

Two-faced misty ocean, I'm a eagle in the sky
I'm standing, I defy you I will I will I will I will not cry.
And when at last I reach my harbor, when my boots are finally dry
I'll live in love and peace until until until until I die.

I was in fear and I was in awe
But I survived this unjust war.

Two-faced misty ocean, I'm an eagle in the sky
I'm standing, I defy you I will I will I will I will not cry.
And when at last I reach my harbor, when my boots are finally dry
I'll live in love and peace until until until until I die.
8. Warrior's Pride (5:33)
In my quest for glory I have found this cursed place
Desperation, horror, dead are rising from their graves

Many years have passed since my blade tasted wicked blood
(No bright way left to choose)
Shall this battle honor my strength? Can it be the one?
(Nothing more left to loose)

By the light of the fallen star I prevail
Look for the Wiseman to heed his tale
Hordes of my foes arise far and wide
Yet hell itself won't break my warrior's pride

Burn thy dead and shut the gates, the cowards must stay in
Going down deep underground I'll fight the skeleton king

Running through my veins and boiling my barbarian blood
(Break the curse, free the land)
Ancient power guide my fury 'gainst the dreadful one
(Yes thou art nephalem)

By the light of the fallen star I prevail
Look for the Wiseman to heed his tale
Hordes of my foes arise far and wide
Yet hell itself won't break my warrior's pride

Pride
Pride
9. Withering Heart (6:13)
On this dark winter's night
I see the lonely glance of a star
Lonely star
It spoke to me and said
Why are you wandering all alone in this dark road tonight?

I raised my voice and said
My quest to find my way has been long
Far too long
I was abandoned here
Forsaken on my own as soon the sun has gone away

Pain and sorrow take their toll
Love is stronger, it conquers all
Fly away on calm healing winds
Dawns the day to wake up this withering heart

The chanting sound of wind
Was singing songs of mourning and loss
Cold loss
The star spoke again
You hold the power to make all your dreams come true within

The howling wind went silent
To hear me say the words: I believe
Please show me
And then across the sky
A thousand stars appeared and like a single voice they sang
10. Last Stand (4:24)
Darkened skies upon us
Fury of the outer space
Swarms of alien insects
Soon we'll be attacked

People screaming in fear
Nowhere they can run
Hope is lost in their eyes
Countdown has begun

And where the need is dire
The space knights land
Their guns and heavy armour
Their stout hearts

Men who lived with honour
In steel clad
Hearts beat again when
Knights organize the last stand

The swarm of the aliens
Fights with frenzied hate
Guns blaze as red talons
Rip their trembling flesh

Men, guns and their foul foes
Fight with all they have
Embracing each other
In a crimson grave

But then the glory of the emperor shines in the sky
His armada appears from the red flaming clouds
Plasma cannons scorch aliens in beams of light
And the knights of the empire rush into attack

Chainswords grind and guns fire at the unyielding foe
And the tide is rising of battle and blood
Naked souls full of fury close in on the beasts
And they serve their good name by dispatching them all

Victory is now complete for the empire's flag
We survived and defeated the swarm of our death
Long shall it be remembered, our furious last stand
And remind us that unity is our one strength
11. Ride to War (6:01)
Closing my eyes
As I feel the wind
By the sunset's dying light

Heart filled with pride
Heroes side by side
And we know it's our last ride

Fight and carry on
Fight and die so strong

Take upon the glory, proud and bold
Tonight we fight once more
Deep into battle one last time
My friends, we ride to war

Strike! Hold! Strike again!
And keep that bloody line
We shall see no dawn
Yet our courage is divine

Fight! Carry on
Fight! And die so strong

Take upon the glory, proud and bold
Tonight we fight once more
Deep into battle one last time
We ride to war

Full charge! No retreat!
For our dark fate must unroll
Wield your noble steel
As a piece of your own soul

Fight! Carry on
Fight! And die so strong

Take upon the glory, proud and bold
Tonight we fight once more
Deep into battle one last time
We ride to war

Warm, red, it flows
And with it my life goes
I shall see you once more
Upon afterlife's shore

Cold death wind's blow
Came for my soul
Yet before I go
I shall kill them all

Fight! Carry on
Fight! And die so strong

Take upon the glory, proud and bold
Tonight we fight once more
Deep into battle one last time
We ride to war

Take upon the glory, proud and bold
Tonight we fight once more
Deep into battle one last time
My friends, we ride to war
