lyrics

This war is closed by us,
Warriors die nearby.
They defend their lands
From foes with battle cry.
Raise your sword, take a bow,
Fortify the outworks,
Say farewell, saddle a horse
Put on a hauberk.

It’s time to stand and fight,
Time to protect the ground
Of evergreen early days,
Of all the cherished bounds.
Go forth and let it be war,
Swear to win or die.
Don’t let them overthrow,
Your brother stands by.

In the bloody battle only spirit survives
Body will decay forever
Forever!

You own the right to live,
Right to save your homeland.
Don’t let your heart misgive,
Ride with a sure hand.
Many will stand against
Make your sword sing and dance,
Wine it with enemy’s blood
Your soul is incensed.

It’s time to pay respect
To all your ancestors
Bow to the sacred ground
They will watch, so bestir!
Your turn to rise and war
With the invaders’ dark
Let your child live and be
As free as a lark.


In this gory battle
Only spirit is to survive
Leave all your fears
Away
Sacrifice flesh, acquire eternal life
All for the
Halcyon days.
