Promised Land tracks

Lyrics


1. A GRIFFIN BANNER

A griffin banner - touching the sky
Aim your muskets - hold your line
Attack the masses - we got the strength
Cannon fire - can't scare us now

An army of blue and yellow march on for the enemy
Armed with strongest rapiers, muskets, pikes and rounds
Defeat the hostile enemy, defeat the hostile town
Feed the total army of stolen food and grain

A griffin banner - touching the sky
Aim your muskets - hold your line
Attack the masses - we got the strength
Cannon fire - can't scare us now

Charles The 12th has no regrets
He has his guns, he has his faith
Charles The Great, The Northern King
Command his men, to the fucking end

Rapiers - muskets - pikes - rounds
Glory - smoke - slaughter - hell




2. REVENOUS MEN

A wooden dragon
In front of the boat
Raised sails
And shining swords

Flat-bottomed ships
A lot of oars
Fast attacks
Make us rich

A clan of barbarians
That's my gang
We've got to work
To devastate and steal

Ravenous men
With mighty swords
Drinking mead
Help us Lord!

Ravenous men
Will rob you blind
Steal your food
And all they find

Sailing in a month
Praying to Thor
To give us luck
And ship-loads of gold

Follow the rivers
To ravage and lay waste
Pillage the villages
Burn the towns

Take some slaves
To trade for gold
The rest we've slain
Blood-stained rain

Ravenous men
With mighty swords
Drinking mead
Help us Lord!

Ravenous men
Will rob you blind
Steal your food
And all they find

Home at last
To meet the wife
Divide the gold
Honor the dead

Repair the boat
To the next crusade
Ravenous men
Will rob you again!




3. PROMISED LAND

I went to my horse
To the promised land
With a golden dagger
And a pouch of wine
I have not much
I have my horse
And a sharpened sword
And a darkened cloak

I will not stop
I ride the wind
I fight myself thorough
I slaughter you down
My goal is clear
I have no doubts
No on stands
On my path to the divine

A journey of dark
Makes me slave
Under clouds of rain
And thunder storms
I an a wreck
Of a former day
Prehistoric chains
Hit my head

I'm close, I know
I harden my soul
I take a step
I take me two
Mirage of lands
Promised lands
I'm close, I know
Harden my soul

In the promised lands
They promised gold
And piles of diamonds
And a lake of wine
I sacrifice
My body and soul
To get me there
And slaughter you all

I went with my horse
To the promised land
With a broken sword
With broken hopes

I have not much
I have my horse
And an empty pouch
And a dirty cloak

Oh, promised lands

I take a wish
From my mind
Oh, promised lands

The end is here
There is no land




4. GRANT ME REST

My search is long, I have a goal
My sight is clean, my mind is clear
I have no light, I need no bright
I'm dragged by a force stronger than me

I hear a voice inside my head
Telling me where to go
I search this force to end my life
A last resort to repeal my soul

In a tomb of ice, I see his eyes
With slippery steps and frozen lips
I stand before you to catch that glimpse
Grind me down, grant me rest

In a tomb of ice, I see his eyes
With slippery steps and frozen lips
I stand before you to catch that glimpse
Grind me down, grant me rest




5. THE REVEALING

I try to see
Into the dark
Behind those clouds
Reaching the stars

I try to find
The truth in the dark
Behind your mask
Into your scars

I'm on a quest
To find the truth
Behind all lies
Beyond your truth
My mask is leading me
To forgotten places
I feel resistance
Against my inner self

Increasing heat
Drain my throat
I came this far
To expose those lies
Surrounded by darkness
I see your fire
Now it's time
To reveal the answers
