Skyclad - Which Is Why

You say that it's good reason, "an eye for an eye"
"A queer bird the fish, sir" must be my reply
For fresh meat and lodgings I'll stand by your side
If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride

All the days after, said all the days after
All the days after, let fortune decide
Always and after, sing, always and after
Death, debt or disaster, let fortune decide

When absurdity starts to make more or less sense
Embrace all your demons, then banish them hence
When clarity flows in the sweet by and by
And questions are answers, you'll know which is why

So, if you seek wisdom, I'll tell you once more
But if you want answers, you've got the wrong door
Ask me no questions and you'll get no surprise
"The truth is a cow, sir, that sceptics despise"

All the days after, said all the days after
All the days after, let nature decide
For always and after, sing, always and after
For lust, love and laughter, let nature decide

When absurdity starts to make more or less sense
Embrace all your demons, then banish them hence
When clarity flows in the sweet by and by
And questions are answers, you'll know which is why

Your lips on my own when they printed "farewell"
Had never been soiled by the beverage of hell
But they come to me now with the bacchanal sign
But the lips that taste liquor, they taste so divine

All the days after, said all the days after
All the days after, let wit be your guide
Oh, you may laugh sir, said oh you may laugh sir
For madman or master, let wit be your guide

When nonsense begins to make more or less sense
Life's riddles and puzzles, just banish them hence
When lucidity flows in the wink of an eye
And questions are answers, you'll know which is why You say that it's good reason, "an eye for an eye"
"A queer bird the fish, sir" must be my reply
For fresh meat and lodgings I'll stand by your side

Skyclad - Superculture

Councillor, I love your city fair

Skyclad - Hit List

A list of needs to get me started
Help me organise my day
Get up, get dressed and get reminded
Exactly what I need to say

Everything is architecture
Everything's political
It's all pride and prejudice
Don't tell me that it's art!

A cool head for calculation
These things occupy my mind
I work better independent
Deal with one thing at a time

Buzzwords buzzing through my brain
Repetition makes the point...again
Your vile vowel movements, they bother me
Don't bother to buzz me again

In the evening when the west light glares
And the storm beats out to sea
Can you find you if you sit and stare
Is your soul lost on the breeze?

Let's start again and stop pretending
Forget the furniture of war
Communication's never ending
Make things better, know the score

Everything is architecture
Everything's political
It's all pride and prejudice
Don't tell me what it is!

A list of needs to get me started
Evaluate, prioritise
Certain things must be decided
Taken one step at a time

In the evening when the west light glares
And the storm beats out to sea
Can you find you if you sit and stare
Is your soul lost on the breeze?

(Counterpoint 1):
All these things I hear could make me live in fear
Could force me not to care or drive me to despair

Skyclad - Babakoto

Bush of ghosts is burning
In the forests of the night
We hear spirits call to move our souls

Hear their voice in many things
Animals and birds and trees
Babakoto and his kind

They will help us sing our song
Reach across the gulf of time
They will help us sing our song
We must try and understand

Commutate a falling leaf
Catch the breathing of the sands
Raindrops on a windowpane we must understand

Spirits move amongst us all
Ask the ancients of this world
If we only read the signs

They will help us sing our song
Reach across the gulf of time

Skyclad - The Well-travelled Man

Seems so many years now since he set off down the road
For the bright lights of the city and his story to unfold
No strings, no family plans, no ties to hold him down
His first avowed intent, to leave this dormitory town

At first, he lay just dreaming till he hit upon a plan
To be a true civilian and a well-travelled man

His father told him: "Listen son, the world lies at your feet
Great lands of opportunity and strangers all to meet"

So seize the day, go make your mark,
'cause fortune loves the brave
So many places to be seen
Before you see your grave

See the stars shoot over Cape Town
Where the oceans all converge
Ride the desert train at midnight
Even sail the universe

Gather round, come one, come all
Listen best ye can
Raise a glass and give a cheer
You can see all at once he's a well-travelled man

That long and dusty trail, it ran to anywhere but home
Dined equally with pagan chiefs and emperors of Rome
Through ages dark and winters long, lost in the strangest lands
Through countless revolutions saw man's cruelty to man

Been a butcher, been a saviour
Been a friend you wouldn't choose
Built temples and filled graveyards
For the side that couldn't lose

Would you walk with him as spirits
In the quiet of the night
And seek to have the power
For to set the world to right?

Gather round, come one, come all
Listen best ye can
Raise a glass and give a cheer
You can see all at once he's a well-travelled man

Gather round, come one, come all
Listen best ye can
Raise a glass and give a cheer
You can say what you like, he's a well-travelled man

Seems so many years now since he set off all alone
To see the wonders of this world, prove the stories he'd been sold
Seeks the "milk of human kindness" and he takes it where he can
From the yachts of Monte Carlo to a teahouse in Japan

But now, he sits forsaken with a beer glass in his hand
Won't anybody listen to the well-travelled man? Seems so many years now since he set off down the road
For the bright lights of the city and his story to unfold
No strings, no family plans, no ties to hold him down
His first avowed intent, to leave this dormitory town

At first, he lay just dreaming till he hit upon a plan
To be a true civilian and a well-travelled man

Skyclad - Still Small Beer

Wake up Jacob now, wake up John
Day's a-wasting, great things to be done
Super-highways don't build themselves
Estates and empires by the stroke of twelve

Where we fit in the scheme of things?
We're just debris blown by the wind
So forget your woman and the water can
We're all working for the man

He's got money now, he's got fame
He's got letters running after his name
He says "We are where we must be
And we are what we must be"

Still small beer
Got the message loud and clear
Still small beer
For what we're worth, it's still small beer

Head down Harvey and tail up Tom
In this man's army, there's no spoils to be won
Spit and polish, keep your muzzle clean
We're just cogs in this war machine

Best foot forward, do we march in fear?
We're all cloggers and minions here
So know your station and make no mistake
As you brew, so you shall bake

All our effort and all our time
All together in the firing line
But an honest soldier is never forgot
Whether he die by musket or pot

Still small beer
Got the message loud and clear
Still small beer
For what we're worth, it's still small beer
Still small beer
Drink up and get out of here
Still small beer
For what you're worth, it's still small beer

And we sing our song to the sun
"Beer! Beer! Beer!" cried the soldiers
"Brave fellows are we"

And we sing our song to the sun
"Beer! Beer! Beer!" cried the sailors
As we heave along the way

What we're worth and what we're not
We'll make the best of what we've got
But they made it plain, so it would appear
That he who thinks beer's not Shakespeare

Haggard - Lost (Robin's Song)

Running away in the autumn rain
Did you ever see a little child sleeping?
"To be near them will my sorrow drain..."
Suddenly I stocked, their bodies weren't breathing anymore
And I couln't help!
They captured my heart with their sorrow... it grows
-
Due to the ones who fear
Dance in the morninglight
Due to the ones who fear
Slaves to this innocent might
-
Due to the ones who fear
Dance in the morninglight
Due to the ones who fear
Slaves to this innocent might
-
Carrying away the ones I love
Folden hands, they have been blessed
Now I feel angry 'bout the ones above
Just no warning, no sign
Hey, yes, I fear!
And I just really feel darkness inside
Lost without a chance to hide
-
Due to the ones who fear
Dance in the morninglight
Due to the ones who fear
Slaves to this innocent might
-
See me down
Down on the ground
Hoping that nobody hears
The sound of this falling tears
-
Endless bleeding
Hoping that nobody sees
What you did to me!
-
Endless weeping
Hoping that nobody hears
The sound of this falling tears
-
Endless mourning
hoping that nobody knows
This feeling below Running away in the autumn rain

Haggard - The Day As Heaven Wept

One of man's darkest chapter, it has just begun
In the sign of the cross they rise
It's the epoch of the inquisition
Too many brothers and sisters have died...

..left with no life inside to be awaken
They will never see the morning sun again
Hypocrisy killed the forsaken
Who thought, faith would be their only friend
Faith would be their only friend

The scenery shows the ashes of some who tried to refuse
Rising smoke becomes one with the dim light of the pale and lurid moon
Can dark clouds hide the hidden from the mighty eye of God?
Using his name on the pretext of deciding who's allowed to live... and who's not!
(It's a very dark night, nobody outside...
Silence wraps up the land, as suddenly
Hoof beats destroy all sleep
In a very dark night...)

Who's allowed to live... and who's not!

From high above the Lord silently watches and grieves
And sadness rises from his inner deep
"For thou, my son hath been crucified..."
All the angels laid down their trumpets and cried

"One shalt be sent to foresee mankind's death!
Rain shalt be my tears and thunder my wrath!"
Sitting on his throne, left of all hope he once kept
On the day, as heaven wept

As heaven wept One of man's darkest chapter, it has just begun
In the sign of the cross they rise

Haggard - Daddy Was Her First Man

A sweet girl of eleven years
Within her brain: The darkest fear
caught by absolute disaster
Her virginity - lost to the own father
There he comes with alcoholic breath
Now her mind is fallen, emotions are dead
Cold by routine she's accepting her fate
Which she must endure since her age of 8
People close their ears
And they close their eyes
They're only open for a moment
When somebody has died
The weak, little victims have no voice
And falling tears don't make a noise
How long does it take
'til a bit of compassion awakes
Something... disgusting!
Covered as a harmless game
Abnormality is reflecting
In all the things that happen
To other girls with different names
- Left without being protected -

"Hey, your daddy is doing a crime
To you and your little mind
A defect will always be
In your mental factory"

Locked inside the darkend room
As the horror passed her by...
The kitchen - place for the next rape
In despair she reaches the butcher-knife
And she refuses doing that once again
At a certain point of panic she cuts away
His little friend!
Justice now is sealed
But do you think now she is healed?
You can give her shelter
You can hold her tight
But you can't take away this horrible
frigth
When memories of the past appear
To control her life in fear... A sweet girl of eleven years

Haggard - Progressive...

Nowadays they are called
"Progressive Wars"
So seen near ARABIA
CROATIA and BOSNIA
Politicians preach with their greatest pride
The last thing we need is a nuclear Suicide!

Mankind will be sorted out... Nowadays they are called

Haggard - Incapsuled

Victim of a tragic accident
To survive she really had no chance
And they thought, that all in her had died
But ONE part was still alive...

So they couldn't hear
The silent scream
As they connected her on this life-machine

An embryonic existence
Incapsuled in a corpse
Artifical rescue of a lost life
The decision: Right or wrong?

Let live? Or let die?
If it would be on you,
how would YOU decide?
An abortion, a solution - maybe
But taking the right to live from the
Baby away?
Why punish to die?

Is it murder or not?
Can they bear the blame in front of their god?
And a fear of the medical disciples:
Maybe the child will be born
CRIPPLED!

Medical history hey write
A solution for a later life?

In the night to the 17th of November
- The point of time -
the world will remember -
As s manipulation-trial has failed
And an embryonic existence passed away Victim of a tragic accident
To survive she really had no chance
And they thought, that all in her had died
But ONE part was still alive...

Haggard - Charity Absurd

The murmur grows - until they rage
It is not a scenery
At this market-place in middle-ages
Somebody - in the crowd -
Speaks a prayer
Hundred burning torches rise
In their light appears the silhouette
Of a mighty FUNeral pile

Headling with some unknown herbs
- Rising suspicion -
"Death" - they say -
"is what she deserves!"
- An innocent victim -
"Instruments of torture
will tell us the truth!"
And it feels like
Oooohhh...

"I'm representing the church
Somebody said, in you might lurk
Things - still not seen by human eyes
Is is dark magic, you are practicing?"

After there are no tears left
And they thought, they'd feaced the fact
"Nothing is as it should be
You're accused of witchery!"

"If there is a creator
If there is a god...
You will pay for all the dead
There's punishment above!
And somebody outside
this chamber of horror

Knows my fear, knows my sorrow
YOU preach, how could I learn?
'cause in this faith is
CHARITY ABSURD!"

After this words wer spoken
The cowd wants to see her die
The way to the confessor
Will it be the last one in her life?

The murmur grows - until they rage
And somebody speaks a prayer
A prayer... The murmur grows - until they rage
It is not a scenery
At this market-place in middle-ages
Somebody - in the crowd -
Speaks a prayer
Hundred burning torches rise
In their light appears the silhouette
Of a mighty FUNeral pile

Headling with some unknown herbs
- Rising suspicion -
"Death" - they say -
"is what she deserves!"
- An innocent victim -
"Instruments of torture
will tell us the truth!"
And it feels like
Oooohhh...

"I'm representing the church
Somebody said, in you might lurk
Things - still not seen by human eyes
Is is dark magic, you are practicing?"

After there are no tears left
And they thought, they'd feaced the fact
"Nothing is as it should be
You're accused of witchery!"

"If there is a creator
If there is a god...
You will pay for all the dead
There's punishment above!
And somebody outside
this chamber of horror

Knows my fear, knows my sorrow
YOU preach, how could I learn?
'cause in this faith is
CHARITY ABSURD!"

After this words wer spoken
The cowd wants to see her die
The way to the confessor
Will it be the last one in her life?

The murmur grows - until they rage
And somebody speaks a prayer
A prayer...

Skyclad - In The... All Together

Another dawn, another date
Another meeting of the ol' G8
To change the world, make history
Not compromise or hesitate

Try something, try anything
Try help the situation
Amidst the cries and demonstrations
We hear the plans of favoured nations

"If it could be done", they said, "the sooner then, the better"
"It would be good if it was better than the way it was before" they said
In the mire all together, when there's so much to admire
It seems "the emperor's new clothes" is such a seasonable attire

The issues are of great import
The problems very clear
From fevered minds and tortured brows
There's such a lot to fear

From climate change to debt relief
Surely couldn't come much bigger
All the power that is nuclear
Whose finger's on the trigger?

On the horns of this dilemma with death's spectre in the wings
Where democracy is waning, clearly it's a "people thing"
Yes, we're in it all together and all our wishes are laid bare
We taste "the truth without the trimmings" and we find it meagre fare

Welcome to "a day in the life show", starring you and me and all
It's better than your realiTV, you just couldn't make this stuff up
As pandemics spread around the world...
We've got pestilence, famine, fire and flood for the people in glasshouses

Now the good will is all over and we're left with nothing good
It seems "the best laid plans of mice and men" get trampled in the mud
Yes, we're in it all together, right up to our nether lip
In this cesspit we inhabit, only takes a slip

"If it could be done", they said, "the sooner then, the better"
"It would be good if it was better than the way it was before" they said
They said nothing too explicit, there's no meat upon the bones
"We'll just have to wait and see", they said, "just see how it goes...", they said Another dawn, another date

Skyclad - Modern Minds

Lord knows I've been drinking again
Caffeine and alcohol
And taking of that opiate and where that leaves me
...I don't know

Asking all those questions 'bout democracy
Society and "all that jazz"
Go to run a check on reality
Is anything just what it seems?

We can work it out
We've got modern minds
There's nothing to be scared of
We've got modern minds

Lord knows I'm a willing man
And you shouldn't want to stop a willing man
You could never hurt me like I hurt myself
So, let me go, abuse myself

A chorus of dead eyes say "Let's help you down"
And if I listen, then I'm lost
Singing songs of lust and obscenity
They're tempting me, they turn my head

We can work it out
We've got modern minds
There's nothing to be scared of
We've got modern minds

On fire, my mind's on fire...

If it's forbidden to forbid
How come it feels like I never lived?
And if I flatter to deceive
How come it feels like I never lived?

I know what I like, they won't change my mind
I know what I like, they won't change my mind
Rhythm, colours, form, I know what I like
I know what I like, they won't change my mind Lord knows I've been drinking again

Haggard - Eppur Si Muove

My Son, beware.
... of all that your eyes cannot see
Trust your mind
And strenghten your abilities

Did you ever touch the starlight ?
Dream for a thousand years?
Have you ever seen the beauty
Of a newborn century?

And now's the time to enter
A new way, things to see
Man is just a weak reflection
In evolution's history

And in your hour of darkness
It will guide your way:

La bellezza del paese di Galilei

E nella mia ora più buia
loro splenderanno
spenderanno per me
all'infinito

Geboren im flackernden Kerzenschein
Verfasst in dunkler Zeit
Ein altes Stück von Pergament
Sich mit der Feder vereint

Der Zeichnung seines Arms entspringt
Der Universen Zelt
Es ist der Zeiten Anbeginn
Und ändert diese Welt

Des Universums Zelt

Nato al lume guizzante della candela
Scritto in tempi oscuri
Sulla vecchia pergamena
Scorre la penna
E dal suo braccio nasce
Il disegno delle volte celesti
È l'inizio dei tempi
E cambierà il mondo

My son, take care...
of what the cross wants you to be
Trust your eyes
And strenghten your abilities

Did you ever touch the starlight ?
Dream for a thousand years?
Have you ever seen the beauty
Of a newborn century?

And time has come to doubt
About the holy verse
It is just a weak reflection
In our endless universe

And in your hour of darkness
The beauty guides your way:

La bellezza del paese di Galilei

Haggard - The Observer

So all the stars
Will guide us on our way
The Sextant as a leader
Has duration for all days

Look at the amazing sky
In long and profund discoveries
With a strong and a clear mind he's encryping
Secrets of astronomy

In endless nights
He observes the sky
This publications will change the world

Galileo Galilei

Only what my eyes will see, I will believe!
Day and night - seperated by the light

In Pisa he's required
To teach the theory
That the stars and all the planets
Revolve around the earth
But he believed
In a different truth
The helocentric one
Proposed by Kopernikus
A new age had begun

The stolen sun
Made their fear rise
And man had sacrificed
A shadow was the reason why

And all the servants of the cross - they will deny
Will deny the starlight

In Pisa he's required
To teach the theory
That the stars and all the planets

Haggard - Of A Might Divine

Requiem eternam
Et dona eis domine

Ride, ride, over the land
Sorrow comes without a waring, dear
And do never start to sacrifice your faith
They, they betray
And poisoned voices creep into your mind
For this will be their final stand

Ride, ride over the land!
Outside - a light!
He awakes in the deep of a stormy night
They have come to get him now
A feast for the raging crowed
With torches still alight

Supressed by a might divine
"Your science of the dark"
Revoke what has been told
Or at the break of dawn you will feel the holy spark
Of a might divine

La falce della luna é in lutto questa notte

"Inside - I cry
All I trusted in should die?"
An instrument to ship the blind
Through the sea of ancient times
Of a might divine

Now the night breaks
And the final trial awakes
Pressure's getting more and more
Betrayed - all I was living for
Of a might divine

Supressed by a might divine
"Your science of the dark"
Revoke what has been told
Or at the break of dawn you will feel the holy spark
Of a might divine

Haggard - Per Aspera Ad Astra

(Adesso sono qui.)
An old dungeon hidden from all the light
Thirteen candles enlighten the dark
Shadows are playing their games on the wall
And a shimmering glow fills the arch

Now, as night steps as side, and a new dawn will break
Silently a new age of science awakes

Old theory that has been wrong
Power of the universe
Will take me to the place where I belong

Through the clauds of lies and fear
In silent moments it comes near:

In my deepest hour of darkness
They will shine.
(feel my scorn)
endlessly.
(The sword that killed the unicorn)
Splenderanno . per aspera ad astra

His theories and knowledge
Mean danger in these times
And those accused of heresy
Will not longer be alive
Hide, hide your secrets well
For in your darkest hour you should dwell

(Adesso sono qui.)
An old table covered with parchments and rolls
The great one has children of four
Callisto, Europa, Ganymed e Io
The bright universe to adore

Old theory that has been wrong
Power of the universe
Will take me to the place where I belong

Through the clauds of lies and fear
In silent moments it comes near:

In my deepest hour of darkness
They will shine.
(feel my scorn)
endlessly.

Haggard - And The dark Night Entered

And Michael Nostradamus began to wander
through Europe for the next sixyears, where
he first became aware the awakening of
his prophetic powers
-
So god has found him weeping
And weath flickered deep withis his eyes
For thy shalt suffer
As long ago...
-
Sadness comes from deep inside
There are so many shades of winter
His breath warms up the wintry air
Punishment to all the sinners
-
Demenia slowly unlightnes the mind...

So god has found him weeping
And wrath flickered deep withis his eyes
For thy shalt suffer
As long ago...

Your wish shalt be denied...
So do you hear the echoes of the ones that'll slowly die?

A dark sign's burning brighter than the light

Out beneath the nightly sky
Squat down on the ground
His breath warms up the wintry air
The truth hurts, that he found

God's eye for the human race
That ends in misery

Haggard - In A Full Moon Procession

As the evining breaks
The night awakes
And the land is mournfully wrapped in silence
Sorrow last
And remains the past
cause this will be my ending day
-
Then the moonlight dies
And torches rise
See the crowd longing for the ritual burning
Holy rimes, as the churchbells chime
cause this will be my ending day
-
Silent thief
Take me away
Let my soul rest in the realm of fairytales
And as the fire enlightens the dark
I see the face bewildered with guilt
An nobody's speaking a word
-
And the dark night enters
-
See the soul that's coming out of darkness into light
Pictures, I can't fight
Appearing in front of my eyes
Like silhouettes in the night
-
Like they give bread to the beggars
They get ready for the feast
Cruelty absorbed by their eyes
Within this midwinters breeze
-

Humanity's burning tonight
-
When I open my eyes
I see soldiers in the fields
Dead bodies on the ground
There are children inbetween
Explosions shock the land
And the evil shows its face
The one called Hister rises
This is the fall of grace...

Beast ferocious from hunger will swim across rivers
The greater part of the region will be against the Hister
The great one will cause it to be dragged in an iron cage
When the German child will obcserve nothing

And the sign of humanity is burning tonight
I can't escape from this ritual silence
Humanity's burning tonight

Haggard - The Final Victory

We are writing the year 1543 A.D., the time the black plaque struck
Agen, here Michael Nostradamus lived with his wife and two children.
He confidently began to treat his felow citizens, but - unfortunately - was
not able to save his family from his old enemy...
-
The final victory
Has crushed the autumn silence
The vinal victory
Has crushed the autumn silence

Mortius, domine, lux perpetua luceat
Mortius, domine, lux perpetua luceat
Mortius, domine

Mortius, domine

Viju svet v notschi tumanoi
Ne prognat mne prisrak strany
Svet Negasnusei svetschi
Gorit, Gorit v notschi

So God has found him weeping
And wrath flickered deep withing His eyes
So thy shalt suffer
As long ago the one's been crucified
The keeper of the Lord's mark
Is rising up with this ability
Heavenly damnation
So thou shalt trust the seer... We are writing the year 1543 A.D., the time the black plaque struck

Haggard - Heavenly Damnation

Haggard - The Midnight Gathering

In the woods we met you, stranger

Taken your fiddle, come on over
Sit down 'round the fireplace

Watch the flames are dancing higher
They are longing for the sky
heroes now will be awaken
Elder stories let their spirits fly

Haggard - Hijo De La Luna

Tonto el que no entienda
Cuenta una leyenda
Que una hembra gitana
Conjuró la luna
Hasta el amanecer
Llorando pedía
Que al llegar el día
Desposara un carél

Tendrás a tu hombre
Piel morena
Desde el cielo habló
La luna llena
Pero a cambio quiero
El hijo primero
Que le engendres a él

Que quien su hijo inmola
Para no estar sola
¿Como le iba a querer?

Luna quieres ser madre
Y no encuentras querer que te hagan mujer
Dime luna de plata
¿Qué pretendes hacer con un niño de piel?
Hijo de la luna

De padre canela nació un niño
Blanco como el lomo de un armiño
Con los ojos grises en vez de aceituna
Niño albino de luna

Maldita su estampa
Este hijo es de un payo
Y yo no me lo cayo

Luna quieres ser madre
Y no encuentras querer que te hagan mujer
Dime luna de plata
¿Qué pretendes hacer con un niño de piel?
Hijo de la luna

Gitano al creerse deshonrado
Se fue a su mujer cuchillo en mano
¿de quién es el hijo?
Me has engañao fijo
Y de muerte la hirió
Luego se hizo al monte
Con el niño en brazos
Y allí le abandonó

Y en las noches que haya luna llena
Será porque el niño esté de buenas
Y si el niño llora
Menguará la luna
Para hacerle una cuna
Y si el niño llora
Menguará la luna
Para hacerle una cuna

[English translation:]

Son Of The Moon

Fool whom don't understand
Tells a legend
That a gypsy female
Summoned the moon until the break of dawn
Crying she was asking
At the break of dawn
Spouse a cardel
but in exchange i want
the first of the children
you sire to him
Cause whom inmoles her son
for not being alone
how was she supposed to love him?

Moon,you want to be a mother
And you can't seem to find wishes
to make you a woman
Tell me silver moon
what do you pretend to do,
with a child made of skin?
Son of the moon

Of cinnamon father borned the child
white as the back of a ermine
with the eyes grey
instead of olive
Albine child of the moon
Cursed your resemblance
This kid is of a Payan
And i dont save it for myself

Gypsy for believing dishonored
Went to his woman with knife at hand
whose this child?
you have cheated me well
And wounded her deadly
Then he made it to the mountain
with the kid in arms
and there he abandoned him

And when the nights of full moon
Will be 'cause the kid has the mood
And if the child cries
Moon will diminish itself
Just to build him a crib
And if the child cries
Moon will diminish itself
Just to build him a crib Tonto el que no entienda

Haggard - Vor Dem Sturme

Marching long and far

Day turns to night

Scattered campfires flicker on three thousand mighty warriors who the sharpen their swords and axes

Never knowing if they will return Marching long and far

Scattered campfires flicker on three thousand mighty warriors who the sharpen their swords and axes

Never knowing if they will return

Chapter II - Upon Fallen Autumn Leaves

Moonrise

Chapter III - La Terra Santa

So we're all the letters
In a mystical tale
While the hours of my kingdom
Do rapidly fade
Deep clouds bear thunder
Like a dark poem's rhyme
And now is the dawn of all times

Concealed behind old castle walls
Will the grim one return, will Ithiria fall?
"Bring me the seer, may true words he speak"
As nightfall has murdered
the last rays of light
Oh god, don't let my heart be weak tonight

Now as morning nears
Farewell they fear
There is sadness in her eyes
Out on misty ground, as all gathered 'round
And their banners reach the sky

I hope you don't fear
Neither do I
Bring me my sword
And kiss me goodbye
This time I hold you
Here in my arms
Will be the last

When Ithiria falls

When Ithiria falls

3000 men scattered at
the first break of dawn
"Now unleash the dragon
to lead me on"
His wings shall bring
storm to these bloodred skies
And fear will be brought
by the thunderous hooves
Oh horses, so heavy, now ride
Now ride!

Now as morning nears
Farewell they fear
There is sadness in her eyes
Out on misty ground (Affondate la)
As all gathered 'round (In quest'era)
And their banners reach the sky
(Unitevi tutti!)

Unitevi tutti
In questa era
Senza timore
Affondate la lancia
In terra santa

I hope you don't fear
Neither do I
Bring me my sword
And kiss me goodbye
This time I hold you
Here in my arms
Will be the last

When Ithiria falls

When Ithiria falls

Now as morning nears
Farewell she fears
There is anger in their eyes
Out on misty ground
As all gathered 'round
And their banners reach the sky

Unitevi tutti

Haggard - On my path

Als ich nun wand're auf dem Pfad
Und die Dunkelheit verhüllt
Den Mondenschein der Licht mir gab
Der das inn're Toben stillt

Suddenly
Along the mountainside
Fog demons slowly rise
Oh wanderer you'll see
Your fate seems to be sealed by thee

As magic did weave
On sanctified grounds
He fell on this knees where he stood
And blinded by those
That have passed long ago
Here in Gildeon's Woods
As he turns his head
Hurt by the beasts
His heart - filled with fear
For this is the end
Or will he find
The way out of here

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine
Et lux perpetua luceat eis
Te decet hymnus, Deus, in Ithiria
Sanctus
Dominus
Quid sum miser tunc dicturus
Requiem aeternam

Il mistero
Valli di Ithiria

Deep inside the forest's heart
Enchanted by the ones
of ancient times
Magic be their light
That dimmers deep within

Night at Gildeon's Woods

Did you ever wander?
And you got lost on secret paths?
Did you ever see them?
Is purity within your heart?
Then trough the trees
A light you may have seen
That saved you from the dark

Moonrise

Wenn auch die Hoffnung
in mir schwand
Mit zitternd Hand
mein Schwert ich zieh'
Unterm finst'ren Himmelszelt
Der Wölfe Hunger nie versiegt
Ein Hieb, ein Schrei,
ein Schmerz, ein Licht
Doch es ist des Todes
düst'rer Schatten nicht

Gazing at the moons' silvery light
Here, where history may fall
Enter the realm of darkened mimght
Courage may now be with us all
In times of freedom, times of fear
Mother death stands by their side
An unicorn so proud and clear
Ride, when all the worlds collide

On my path

Als ich nun wandre auf dem Pfad
Folg' dem Lichte, das mich führt
Als der Taverne ferner Schein
Tief mein ängstlich Herz berührt Als ich nun wand're auf dem Pfad

Haggard - Chapter I - Tales Of Ithiria

Quando coeli movendi sunt et terra

Quando coeli movendi sunt et terra
Dum veneris judicare saeculum per ignem

My son, now listen what I say:
Keep in mind what you have learned
Wrap your fingers 'round your sword
Maybe you will not return
Thousands that we once have been
Only a few are still here
I've to give this sacrifice

oh, the autumn brought us fear

My life, my blood, my tears, my pain
I'm the guardener of thee
Through an axestrike I have lost
The ability to see
Now my child, your time hath come
Mercy - not with those you'll harm
Wrap your fingers 'round your sword

(And the ones we love will fall
Like autumn leaves
On these endless fields)

As the horn sounds the alarm
Und als der Sturm begann
Als Fleisch auf Eisen traf
Hell wie der Glocken Klang
Die Schreie derer, deren Glück versagt

Mit Wunden übersät
Der Eichenhain ihm Schutze bot
Wie die Legende sagt
War dies des Vaters sich'rer Tod

Now that all silence was disturbed
The Ground, as red as autumn leafs
Father Frost, the last they feel
On these mighty, endless fields

Quando coeli movendi sunt et terra
Dum veneris judicare saeculum per ignem

Hush hush, my child
Mother death is your bride
If you listen her song you will follow
So better beware
Let your senses take care
Your innocent mind will be hallowed

Hush hush, my child
Mother death is your bride
If you listen her song you will follow
So better beware
Let your senses take care
Your innocent mind will be hallowed

A step in the dark
(Miserere Dominus)
A secret to hide
(Rex tremendae majestatis)
A legend to tell
(Libera eas)
Drowned in the waters of time
(Miserere Dominus)

A secret to hide

He holds
Wisdom of ancient times
A parchment with numbers and rhymes
Fear speaks the spell to survive
The circle of druids - alive!

They all gathered in the night
Within the torches light
As their slumber did awake

So I did wish a thousand times
Mother Death would come to me
In her arms I will entwine
And I'm rising up to thee
Now my child, my time hath come
Mercy - not with those I'll harm
I wrap my fingers 'round my sword

As their horn sounds the alarm!

Now the winter begins
On this endless fields Quando coeli movendi sunt et terra

Haggard - The Origin

It had already become day as he opened the big wooden door and stepped out of the shadows.

The sun had shown behind the eastern forest, bright and warm in a cloudless sky.

As his eyes closed, he slowly raised his head.

Gently, the morning wind caressed his face and rustled through his long hair

The chatter of the birds had become one with the whispers of the black elders, melding with the rhythmic babbling of the little brook, which wound its way to the distance behind the humble grange.

But it has not always been like that.

One thousand seven hundred years ago, during the celebration of the two moons, the enemy forayed over powered the villagers under the cloak of darkness.

Brave men were cut down where they stood in the cold crisp autumn night.

The ones who still had life in their veins escaped in despair, but regathered quickly and formed a resistance.

Many among them, women and children, only armed with axes, torches, and pitchforks.

And it seemed as if all hope was forsaken It had already become day as he opened the big wooden door and stepped out of the shadows.

Haggard - Herr Mannelig (Short Version)

All'alba, prima che il sole sorgesse
e gli uccelli cantassero la loro dolce canzone
La donna del troll della montagna con lingua falsa
ed ingannevole propose al signore:

Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig mi vorrai sposare
Per tutto quello che io dolcemente ti darè?
Se vorrai, rispondi solo si o no
Farai così o no?

Ti darò i dodici mulini
che stanno tra Tillo e Terno
le macine sono fatte del più rosso rame
e le ruote sono cariche d'argento

Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig mi vorrai sposare
per tutto quello che io dolcemente ti darè?
Se vorrai, rispondi solo si o no
Farai così o no?

Se tu fossi una donna cristiana
riceverei volentieri regali così,
ma io so che sei il peggiore troll della montagna
figlio degli spiriti maligni e del demonio.
