Lyrics


HAIL HAIL HAIL (Sample)

AS FROM A DREAM I WOKE
SAW A BLACKFLAMED SUN
A BLACK SPEARED SUN
SHINING ON EVERYONE
HAIL HAIL HAIL THESE RUNES THEY WILL PREVAIL
HAIL HAIL HAIL IF NOTHING ELSE
AND BENEATH AN ALTER
COVERED IN OAKLEAF
POWERFUL RUNES I SAW
SOWILÓ TÍWAZ & ELHAZ INVERTED
HAIL HAIL HAIL THESE RUNES THEY WILL PREVAIL
HAIL HAIL HAIL IF NOTHING ELSE
AS FROM A DREAM I WOKE
HEARD A WHISPER FROM THE PAST
AMONG THE TREES AMONG MOUNTING OAKS
FROM TIMES LONG GONE ALAS
HAIL HAIL HAIL THESE RUNES THEY WILL PREVAIL
HAIL HAIL HAIL IF NOTHING ELSE


BENEDICTION / MALEDICTION (Sample)
NOW CURSED BE THEE
WHO WOULD RUIN OUR FAIR LAND
AND CURSED BE THEE
THAT WOULD SEAL UP THE WELLS
AND CURSED BE THEE
THAT ABANDON THE GOD'S HANDS
AND BUILD A STRANGE PLACE
FOR OUR PEOPLE TO DWELL
NOW CURSED BE THY BREATH
AND CURSED BE THY BREATHING
AND CURSED BE THY EYES
AND CURSED BE THY SIGHT
AND CURSED BE THY HANDS
THAT HAVE SLACKENED THE HARVEST
AND CLOSED THE OLD WAYS
TO THE JOY AND THE LIGHT
NOW CURSED BE THY NAME
ALL CURSED AND FORGOTTEN
ALL CURSED BEYOND MEMORY
PLACE OR RECALL
AND CURSED BE THY SOUL
OUT OF NOTHING BEGOTTEN
NOTHING TO NO THING
AND NOTHING TO ALL
NOW CURSED ART THEE
WHO HAVE RUINED OUR FAIR LAND
AND CURSED ART THEE
THAT SEALED UP OUR WELLS
AND CURSED ART THEE
THAT ABANDON THE GOD'S HANDS
AND HAVE BUILT A STRANGE PLACE
FOR THE CHILDREN TO DWELL
