GODS OF MY FATHERS

 
I'm watching my men, from the top of a hill
fear on their faces, not ready to die
they won’t let me be by their side.
 
there was a time, not so long ago.
honor and courage what made a man rule,
not right of birth or a foreign god’s plan.
Oh, how I long to fight!
 
(I hear them Calling)
 
[Chorus]
Gods of my fathers, I’m hearing your call.
I will find my path, to your halls.
 
Gods of my fathers,I’m hearing your call.
I will find my path, make my people proud!
 
takes his crown off, and throws it away
adjusting his helmet, urges his horse to charge….
 
dawn of glory, nightfall in the darkness
hear the drums of war
 
Sons of Odin come to the battle
hear the call of God
 
Outnumbered, death is stalking
(Valhalla)
is waiting for me, open the gates
 
Aah ah ah
 
brothers, I'm coming and take revenge
To die and live again
 
(I hear them Calling)
 
[Chorus]
Gods of my fathers I’m hearing your call.
I will find my path, to your halls.
Gods of my fathers I’m hearing your call.
I will find my path, make my people proud!
 
[Chorus]
Gods of my fathers I’m hearing your call.
I will find my path, to your halls.
Gods of my fathers I’m hearing your call.
I will find my path, make my people proud!
 
soaked in enemy’s blood
washed away his baptism
he has been reborn
 
soaked in his own blood
his Life is slipping away
a hero of old…
 
 

OPEN YOUR EYES

 
 
Inside in the grid we struggle to share our emotions
Trying to escape our shame avoiding consequences
What a disgrace! There is so much blood staining our hands
A bleak generation soulless - not at fault!
 
Don’t look back, my friend!
Follow me instead!
 
CH: 
Now, look into my eyes
see all the innocence now gone
See pain and regret
For all the destruction we’ve done to the world
 
Manipulate! Your senses and emotions
Starving for love, you can’t deny
Hollow responses to the world around us
no one will wake in time to be saved
 
What we’ve done? Again!
Now it’s time to change! 
 
CH2: 
Now look into my eyes
Can you see all the tears we shed?
For our mankind, just open your eyes and see 
What we’ve done to the world?
 
Feed the machine with anguish and transform into a depressive form without return
 
 
A high level of unconsciousness trying to open our minds
Our eyes are open but we cannot see… we rather follow the blind 
 
 
CH1: 
Now, look into my eyes
see all the innocence now gone
See pain and regret
For all the destruction we have done to the world!
 
CH2: 
Now look into my eyes
Can you see all the tears we shed?
For our mankind, just open your eyes and see… 
What we’ve done to our world?
 
CH3
what can we do my friends?
Take the time to appreciate the beauty around us
Before it’s too late and we depart from this world
 
Reach out for harmony 
And embrace all beings and live in peace for eternity.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

FALLEN HEROES

 
CHORUS
Now that the enemy has gone far away
We drink and we dance only joy will remain
Time for celebration, a cheer for the heroes
A toast to the fallen ones
 
Clouds of gloom are darkening the sky
Frozen wind hits my face
Mountains whisper stories of old
Their ancient voice can be heard
 
Those whispers make my mind travel
It flies to a time long ago
Days of slaughter and cruelty
In a wintry medieval night
 
 
Rage invades the fields and the seas
Besieged is my home land
Foreseen it is that my people's blood
Will be dying this dawn
 
The eternal choice must be taken
Fight not to be enslaved
A crowd fighting as one
But death is taking its toll
 
CHORUS
Now that the enemy has gone far away
We drink and we dance only joy will remain
Time for celebration, a cheer for the heroes
A toast to the fallen ones
 
 
Laugh against fear, courage guides our lives
A new illusion is born
Flowers blossom where light doesn't reach
Rise your cups to the sky
 
Come to a time long forgotten
An age of broken hearts
Where simple men become heroes
In taverns their deeds will be sung
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

GORGON QUEEN

 
A Guardian, a mortal among three
She hated the mankind
Her gazers made of stone
Could Perseus set them free?
 
I Can’t resist, beauty.
Horrifying deity
My Gorgon Queen take me away
For my love, I bear the pain
 
I have scorned the mirrored shield,
I’ve disdained the sandals gold
I’m her slave,
Now I celebrate her charming locks
 
(Chorus)
“For centuries I shall behold,
Embraced by your wings and brazen hands,
Under the Greek Islands,
Poisoned by serpentines, she conquers me”.
 
Let’s ride together, from the Cyclades ‘till Crete,
Limnos, Schinousa and the Aegean Sea 
 
Take me away from the pain,
of loneliness, please make it fade.
Take me away to your reign,
Your ground I shall accolade.
 
Preventing the livings from their entering,
Living under waters, swallowing them up.
Guarding the doorway to the world of the dead.
Duality, beauty, ugliness.
 
(Mythological) Behold such ancient tale, mythological.
(The Mankind) Darkness inside the mankind,
(Storyteller) sown by untrue storytellers, true, historical.
(Mythological) Giving life to folklore.
 
 
 

SEE YOU IN VALHALLA

 
 
I stood by my people and my peoples needs
And if a woman is judged by her deeds
Then I'll see you in Valhalla
 
 
Young Girl, with eyes of blue
Daughter of Kings, pure and true
Standing tall in world of hate
Rising each day to meet her fate
 
 
Immaculate virtue; white as snow
Till ravished one night by a dark foe
She fought till he mr death came by his knife
And in her anguish called out in strife
 
 
in Valhalla, in Valhalla, in Valhalla, I'll see you in Valhalla 
in Valhalla, in Valhalla, in Valhalla, I'll see you in Valhalla
 
 
Young woman, with a child in her womb
Flower of motherhood, ready to bloom
Folk and family were her first duty
Her honor surpassed only by beauty
 
 
Wife and sister, gem of the earth
Till she met her end in childbirth
Her newborn babe let out a cry
And I heard her whisper as she died
 
 
in Valhalla, in Valhalla, in Valhalla, I'll see you in Valhalla 
in Valhalla, in Valhalla, in Valhalla, I'll see you in Valhalla
 
 
Old grandmother, with a house full of kin
Withered and faded, wrinkled and thin
A life lived in the service of her race
Noble and righteous, full of grace
 
Her family honored the wise old sage
Till she left the world in her old age
And though her body was tired and weak
As she took her last breath I heard her speak
 
 
in Valhalla, in Valhalla, in Valhalla, I'll see you in Valhalla 
in Valhalla, in Valhalla, in Valhalla, I'll see you in Valhalla
 
 
(this verse was not included for reasons of length)
The spirit of these noble women gone
Is with me now, where it belongs
With those courageous, proud and true
Who know just what they've got to do
 
So learn the lessons of those gone by
I'll do my best and I will try
And if the Valkyries come one day
This is what you"ll hear me say
