Track Name: Reign of Eternity
Child of The Guild:
Echoes of war run through the night
shattering dreams of the past
The spirits that bind us revive
the valour of heroes at last
Guild of the keep's now marching on
the will to defend is unbound
I feel there's a wind coming on,
words of the elder resound...

The Elder:
Demons of our time you will behold
The steeds are galloping to find
legions that are strengthening your foe
And when the gale reforms the sky
time has come for taking life

Child of The Guild:
Voices of doubt weakening me
I'm forcing them out of my head
As in the distance I see
a glow of the hell that's ahead
I know in my heart I'm sowing the seed
of what there shall be when we fall
Each of us bearing a dream
I'd die for the greatest of all

The Voice of Eternity:
And thus another mortal soul transcends
here lies the token of his oath
Heroes die though deeds will live again
within the stories of the old
And every night he will devote
his life to the land, his home...

The Elder:
Gaze at the dawn, you will see the lands of lore
once become a realm of stillness and serenity
There, far beyond tyranny and dreads of war
fallen heroes dwell under the Reign of Eternity

Child of The Guild:
Fatherland, bless my deeds
to grace upon the realm attain
I'll revive my ancestors' legacy!

The Voice of Eternity:
And thus another mortal soul transcends
here lies the token of his oath
Heroes die though deeds will live again
...and in the dawn of the new day
his soul will once again prevail
within the sons of the brave...

The Elder:
Gaze at the dawn, you will see the lands of lore
once become a realm of stillness and serenity
There, far beyond tyranny and dreads of war
fallen heroes dwell under the Reign of Eternity

Gaze at the dawn, you will see the lands of lore
once become a realm of stillness and serenity
There, far beyond tyranny and dreads of war
all immortal souls will bow the Reign of Eternity
Track Name: Eulogy
Strolling over stone in silence all alone
It seems that there is nothing left for me
To ensconce my way arising disarray
will slow me down forevermore

Despite all things of life that may come in too high
Encouragement of soul I undergo
Glance of eye's your sword, encase the final words
While something keeps enchanting me

In spite of where you are you'll see a rising star
And thus you know we live until we rise again
Out of all pain and strife to everlasting life
Where all of us will peace of mind attain...

I strive among our kind and some will surely find
A path of glory in another time
There will be my home where no one lies alone
and sorrow will be left behind

In spite of where you are you'll see a rising star
And thus you know we live until we rise again
Out of all pain and strife to everlasting life
Where all of us will peace of mind attain...

After all this time, an endeavour behind
The final words of farewell:
Always mend your soul, reach towards your goal
And feel the bliss upon the way

In spite of where you are you'll see a rising star
And thus you know we live until we rise again
Out of all pain and strife to everlasting life
Where all of us will peace of mind attain...
Track Name: Northern Paladins
Alone in the wind with fire and steel
they ended their quest on this enchanted field
They have the approval of immortal power
A rash, valiant knight, a brave brotherhood
So fearless and rude yet cautious and bold
They walk on 'the desert between your ears'

Clash of steel on the fields of green echoes in the wind
You will see through the mist and steam
witnessing a triumph of the kings

On the fields of victory we stand alone
and revive our ancestors' pride
We heed their legacy into the night
and the flames of fire and lightning rise
in the Northern Paladins' eyes

We'll dance on your grave, the last on the hill
alone in the night on the still battlefield
We live by the laws of our ancient dominion
Our fathers behind our lineage and blood
Their deeds and their power are deep in my heart
We fight and we proudly hail from our kingdom

Clash of steel on the fields of green echoes in the wind
You will see through the mist and steam
witnessing a triumph of the kings

On the fields of victory we stand alone
and revive our ancestors' pride
We heed their legacy into the night
and the flames of fire and lightning rise
in the Northern Paladins' eyes
Track Name: Fatherland
A knight in a kingdom's keep...
The valiant and fierce that I lead,
they depend on the glorious king
A child of the guild I am,
we speak for the promised land
now I share my beliefs with the wind

And deep in my heart I'm eager to fight and win
("...forces flowing through your soul...")

Fatherland, I reach for thee
Grace upon the realm - the greatest victory
Through the deeds along the quest of mine
you'll live inside of me until the end of time

The wind, as the lore of time
brings a lament from the sky
and I reckon that something is on
I'll enter the no-man's-land
with a glimmering blade in my hand
the endeavour for power and glory has begun...

Tears of blood will be shed on our way
even right from the start
There's a force to prevent disarray,
deep in my heart... the love to my home
I'm eager to fight and win
("...forces flowing through your soul...")

Fatherland, I reach for thee
Grace upon the realm - the greatest victory
Through the deeds along the quest of mine
you'll live inside of me until the end of time
Track Name: And Deeds Live On
Set out to the ocean hoping to sail
where the winds of hope, they blow
Knowing dangers burden us on our way
to the west we turn our bows
The Trinidad became our home...
but to this land we will return

In this dawn...
the sun may shine in the sky
but out there the thunder awaits
Set sail before it's too late

Tales of damnation and cruel castigation
will have to succumb to this day
New dawn is rising beyond the horizon
forcing the tail-winds prevail
Crossing the ocean where
unseen horizons appear...

Tuulet veivät kauas luota maan
taivaankannen tietä seuraamaan
Vielä kerran häilyy se mielessäin
jos koskaan sammuen silmistäin
Tuo aika autuuden ja niin...
voitokas on muistomme kuolematon

In March of '20 we were bound to stop
by the shore of Patagonia
The vessels settled in San Julian
as winter came to thee, Magellan

We lost The Santiago... but others carried on
and eagerly strived to the sea
Tierra del Fuego we finally left behind
and the ocean brought us months of grief
The San Antonio had headed back to Spain

Thought our passage would be over soon
as we reached The Philippines
Dwellers of the isle were waging a war
and the fate was unforeseen
Thus he died, away from home
though his tries and deeds live on...

Tuulet veivät kauas luota maan
taivaankannen tietä seuraamaan
Vielä kerran häilyy se mielessäin
jos koskaan sammuen silmistäin
Tuo aika autuuden ja niin...
voitokas on muistomme kuolematon
ja niin aava taas on tyyni ja koskematon
Track Name: The Resignation of False Arts
(the dawn of mission: word starts
to spread in the domain of serenity)

Great dreams of rapture, transcendental bloom
reigning the essence of what's known to you
Signs of the real world can't enter your homes
but I know there's more than what you'll ever...

know in your peaceful but hollow domain,
open your mind for a new change of reign...
We are but messengers heeding the word
thus you will behold a new order of world...!

(transition)

Intense perception of life,
like thunder raging in the sky,
controls my heart
leading me on into a new dawn
Glorious, divine melodies
corroborate from within
I feel reborn into the new dawn,
a dream once started must go on...

(dormancy)

(the dawn of rivalry: false forms of art
begin to reign the minds of the weak,
leading the world into injustice and greed...)

Born from the greed to appeal to the weak
with its tempting style and simplicity
Arise, be applied, for the world filled with lies
is in need of art and sincerity

(preparation for the battle)

(the clash for superiority)

(transition)

Powerful kingdom of
light, peace, art and immortal might,
bring on your laws: elation to thee
and those, who (are) within the silent walls
- left to die - (who) take on to trust,
to rely on what they learn,
what they have heard... raise high your voice!

Intense perception of life,
like thunder raging in the sky,
controls our hearts
leading us on into a new dawn
Glorious, divine melodies
corroborate from within
We are reborn into the new dawn
a dream once started has gone on...

(return to serenity: never will man's greed
disguised in art leave the world,
but the change is on...)

On wings of time false arts resign
True skills sustain, for good remain
Our futures lie in hands divine
rest free and sound, rapture's unbound...
In your hand, reign over land,
wings of freedom try!

(peace at last...)
