It cannot be seen
But there's blood on the green
Only God knows I'm innocent
Take me, take me home

A dark seed reigns in me
Like the storm rules over the sea
I challenge thee, do not cross
The bridge alone

Don't dare me now, the threatening shadow will pass by
They're getting closer now, open your eyes
Wake up my dear young friend
And hate shall fade away

I will not move, yet
I'll stand still, instead

There on the battlefield he stands
Down the battlefield he's lost
And on the battlefield it ends

War and anger shall reign
The clash of iron can be heard
By blindness you're driven insane
I'm lost in anguish and grief

Sorrow won't wane 'til you die
A shattered body deeply hurt
And darkness will cover the light
It's gone forevermore

The field's been left in sorrow
The father and the son
They're gone

The sun shines bright and anger rises
Lorn and lonely, torn apart
Don't you think it's time to stop now
We were charmed and fooled by the old serpent's kiss

Let's pray
That heaven is on our side
Through violence and horror
Shall honor arise

So let's pray
And blessed shall be our leader
We follow the noble and bright

Don't you hear me crying
Crying
Come take me away
I hallow thy name

There on the battlefield he stands
Down the battlefield he's lost
And on the battlefield it ends

War and anger shall reign
The clash of iron can be heard
By blindness you're driven insane
I'm lost in anguish and grief

Sorrow won't wane 'til you die
A shattered body deeply hurt
And darkness will cover the light
It's gone forevermore

That's what the minstrel sing
Join in the horrible screams
Take part in murderous deeds
Re-owned be the lion-hearted

Join in the minstrelsy
Wailing in endless grief
It eagerly longs for more
Broken bodies lay on the ground

Blood sheds all over the place
The green will be stained forever
And hate reigns all over the field
They keep struggling on in anger

Fiercely intense, outrageous, too blind to see
And in pain they keep on singing
We claim the land for the high lord
God bless the land and our high lord

War and anger shall reign
The clash of iron can be heard
By blindness you're driven insane
I'm lost in anguish and grief

Sorrow won't wane 'til you die
A shattered body deeply hurt
And darkness will cover the light
It's gone forevermore
