1. Cottages & Saunas

Here we had built our cottages and saunas
From the swamp we have shovelled our fields1. Cottages & Saunas

Here we had built our cottages and saunas
From the swamp we have shovelled our fields
Nobody can take it away from us
Not for free, and that's for sure
Attack forward you Nordic boy
Fire to the balls
Attack without fear through the enemy lines
Attack and let it burn

Here we had built our cottages and saunas
From the swamp we have shovelled our fields
Nobody can take it away from us
Not for free, an that's for sure
We eat iron, we shit the chain
We never let them live
Gunfire pounded night after night
Ant then all was quit here
We saw the forest full of bodies
Nobody could escaped
And horses' carcasses among with the bodies
And everywhere there burnt




2. Journey Man

I was born in a deep forest
I wish I could live here all my life
I am made from stones and roots
My home, these woods and roads

All my life I loved this sound
Of the woods all around
Eagles flies where the winds blows free
Journey is my destiny

Free, free as a journey man
Feel, heat in the moonlight
Free, free as a journey man
Feel, heat in the moonlight

Ragged trousers, rucksack in my back
Narrow road behind me
I never look back
Long way is in the past
As in front of me
Hunger keeps me going
I don't care where it leads
Fire burns under my feet
Journey men pleasure and destiny
Sky is black, stars shows me the way
Moon shispered how to keep my faith

Free, free as a journey man
Feel, heat in the moonlight

Free, free as a journey man
Feel, heat in the moonlight

Free, free as a journey man
Feel, heat in the moonlight

Free, free as a journey man
Feel, heat in the moonlight




3. Fields In Flames

They rode
Those two hundred men
Narrow roads
Through this dark cold land
They burnt all villages
They raped and destroyed
Took gold, silber and coins
Taxes to King was their mission
But pain and sorrow they left behind
They drank all booze
They stole and killed
Fields in Flames and
Families without homes
Men with their golden swords
Horses' armoured heads
Iron harassed hard
Blades of weapons slashed
In silence the village lie down
Hearts bleeding morbid sorrow
One man of these men of the death
One man, broke down
Down he went with insanity
Down man, lunatic
He lit the fire under the house
You could only see his feet
He burnt away his insanity
Burnt away those memories

5. Spirit Of The Forest

He never speaks
but he understands
Thinks higher than a man
He's living in
The northern lights
In winter everlasting
He travels around
Big drum in his hand
And he knows
What you have in your mind
There's always wolf within
That leads him down
And back home

Spirit, spirit of the forest
Hiding in those northern lights
Spirit, spirit of the forest
Hiding in those northern lights

He has long waited
For the right moment
Storm of colors
Rages in the sky
Beware, never whistle
To the norhtern lights
Or it curses you
To the woods of evernight

There's only one
Who can really sets you free
And it's spirit of the forrest's
Old white wolf
But it hard to track
You'll never found footsteps
It will find you
If you are really blessed




6. Native Land

The waves of the lake splash
and pines hum.
The frost of the north hurts,
Finnish grief it sings.
Woods bleak and stony, unlit,
there my mind rests.
There I will forget the pain,
stars and moon us bless.
O my native land, stand proud, facing the future.
You were never broken down, banished into the night
O my native land, stand proud, facing the future
you will never be broken down.
Not weather can frighten us
not to shrivel us winters
not the cruelty ofthe woods
take our blood and life.
Frothy rapids roar
and the hills high.
Woods of pine and forests of birch
over the wide rocks.




7. Hunting Song

Huntin is going on
we are a part of the wilderness

Hunting is going on
only the fast will survive
in the forest we prowl
looking hard for deers
Hunger croaks in our stomaches
our eyes like the wolves'

We run after meat as the possessed
and we kill without pity
we rejoice and we laugh when the deer falls
hunting's more than just killing for the food.

Hunting is going on
we are a part of the wilderness

Hunting ist going on
only the fast will survive
Away they will not get, those four legged
not even the smallest one
we live in the forest here only fast ones live
only strongest will survive

9. Beer Beer

From evening to morning
and morning to evening
I wanna drink
something stronger than a man
From evening to morning
and morning to evening
I wanna drink
cause that's what I am
Beer, beer
I want beer
from beer I get really drunk
Beer, beer
I need more beer
so much I pass out
For beer I'm working
for beer I'm fighting
for bee I'll do
whatever I have to
when drunk I'm talking
when drunk I'm joking
when drunk I can be as I've
always wanted to bee




10. Old Tale

Old tale about the girl,
and the poor farmer boys,
their time together flamed.
It couldn't last forever,
they knows it well.

So they took from the moment,
everything
so they took from the moment,
everything.

Said father to the maid,
it's time to go,
you'll marry my chosen one.
He's rich enought and religious,
He's the lord of all known.

Who is the chosen one,
asked gilr with sad eyes.
He's a lord from the west,
he is to you the man best.
But the girl was sad as a child.
The girl carried the farmer's child,
and father noticed that.
You'll die, he yelled,
you'll die as a whore,
you bleongs to the gallows,
then I'll buried you and your sins.
The Boy heard, that gilr got hung.

He took the sword
and cut her fahter's throat.
Then he rod to the chasm
and fell down to his death.
There he met his bride and son
who is that little on,
yho you embrace?
He is your sweet son...
and come with us
we ar now here together forever
always here together forever...




11. K¤det Siipin¤ (Hands As Their Wings)

Niin hilijaisen,
n¤en hilijaisen
n¤en kulkueen miin mustan,
niin tunman mustan
hiljaisen n¤en surussa kulkevan
k¤det on siipin¤, niin on k¤det suojana
suojana siivet silm¤in
surun silm¤in, k¤det siipin¤
eess¤ mustan hunnun
kulkueen n¤en l¤nteen,
hiljaa, niin lipuu hiljaa l¤nteen
kulkueen niin tumman leskein,
niin mustan nuornain leskein
jol k¤det siipin¤, suojana silm¤in
k¤et siipin¤ leskein
hiljaa kuulen surun laulun,
kuulen laulun katkeran
hyrin¤n hyisen leskein,
kivun tunnen kivun kuoleman
n¤en min¤ tumman taivaan,
palavan taivaanrannan min¤ n¤¤n
tuulesta kuulen hyisen huuon
sodan kylm¤n huuon.

[Hands As Their Wings]

So silent, I see, oh so silent
I see the procession so black, oh so dark, so dark
silent I see the procession of sorrow,
hands as their wings, shielding are the hands
shielding the eyes are the wings
the eyes of sorrow, hans as wings
in front of the black veil.

I see the procession westbound
silently gliding westbound
the procession of widows so dark
so dark the young widows
whose hands as wings shielding their eyes
hands as wings of the widows.

Quietly I hear the song of sorrow, I hear the song so bitter
humming of the frozen widow, I fell the pain, the grief of death
I see the dark sky, the horizon burning I see
I hear the chilling call in the wind
the cold call of war,
the cold call of war,
the cold call of war.

Nobody can take it away from us
Not for free, and that's for sure
Attack forward you Nordic boy
Fire to the balls
Attack without fear through the enemy lines
Attack and let it burn

Here we had built our cottages and saunas
From the swamp we have shovelled our fields
Nobody can take it away from us
Not for free, an that's for sure
We eat iron, we shit the chain
We never let them live
Gunfire pounded night after night
Ant then all was quit here
We saw the forest full of bodies
Nobody could escaped
And horses' carcasses among with the bodies
And everywhere there burnt
