Reach down to the Earth We will know the meaning of power If god is dead let's take the world From now on destiny is ours Steel and disease to the ones Raging against all we stand for I’ll make us all return Back to the heathen shores Proudly on raven wings We will overthrow What always made us weak Loud, shouting aloud, we're ready to fight Breaking the bounds of the nations Loud, shouting aloud, We're shaking the ground For a new revelation Reach back to the Earth For all that is scarring in me
We'll live, we'll bleed We'll grow like a raging fire… Or we will be ruled by liars Their hell awaits, an age of hate is coming You´ll see our peace is fading away We need to be one when the enemy's close Then you'll see the enemy fall We need to be one when the enemy's close Hear my calling Today they killed to give our sons a lesson We'll teach to keep fear from our way With a song that’s keeping us together That we’ll shelter for long Through these times our hardest ever Fate’s giving us the choice
Death Blow 04:18
You live to calm your avarice And hunger for wealth Your soul is dry like a wilted flower The great dream of power Is already crumbling What is it for when everything’s gone? Soon you'll be on your own Then you'll find out Hiding by, yearning for the death blow Hiding by, greed in your veins grows... Making you die for gold Behold the door is closing, your strength decays now It's time to clean your guilt before the dawn comes Your wills and desires are all you lived for What is it for when everything’s gone?
Spare me - from the lies I was always driven to believe Spare me - they'd surround me in the darkness For my time is coming to the end… And I've no rest Had I felt the soothing wind before Seen the ageing trees climb up forever But you'll hear my name echo through the days Then you will know I ran away from the storm Calmly and in peace Like an infant walking to the gates Take me - such heart never felt hatred For to die in peace is to return to Mother Earth
Don't you see how the night is falling? Don't you see the end is coming? For all the past I left behind me I learned that everything returns... You must pay in life for all that you did There's no place for sorrow Grieve for old days And you will get nowhere, you'll see Too many take the easy way out They will die as cowards They will sell what is ours For a fake little jewel And keep it all for themselves
Followed the snake to the pit, room for lost souls They took me to sleep, with a thought to choke on Who wants to live seeking saviours And reap what is sown in a never-ending circle? No waters drag me, no flame can harm me I rise higher and higher No chain can bound me, no eyes defy me I rise higher and higher Fear will feed with what you let in You won't see how firm the rein is I'm not the man you betrayed; now I know that Hope isn’t my game, it is a jail made for us I saw the fiends drool for my skin But I stepped without fear, as I walked they made way for me
When you rode with your hordes Down through the glen In your eyes what I thought Could be our end A fire inside in control Ancient and fierce Begged for blood of yours Shed on the field Now's the time… soon you'll die For the ground is now clear Between you and I And I hold... All our might in my blood No one will ever shed my blood All our might in my blood Not one of your swords will shed my blood You are not hard to defeat Stripped from your masks Severed heads laid in row Will prize my wrath
Becoming 04:10
"Repeat"- says the liar "Repeat a thousandfold" A lie into the truth becomes Beneath the power always lie the weak For whom the lie becomes real Tales of equality for the cattle The rule is to remain asleep, Not knowing who's who Never dream out of tune Playground of darkness Children of deceit Pray and then have your meal Becoming - walls falling down Falling down to the ground Becoming - on goes the storm Sweeping who dares the throne On goes the storm
Real and grim 'til the end of your days Looking from within, you're going to find me Counting sins with an eye stinging in like an arrow Feed on the guilt of those who believe Hear the rhyme, the everlasting lie Dare to defy it...everlasting lie Running blind to the saviour of souls They were told about... But they don't find him In the eyes and the face Of a cold lifeless idol
Awakening 03:03
Some men just want a soul to devour Some men just want to make their way Some men go through their life meek and tired Some men just laugh at their fate To seek for an answer, to hold one inside Through the power, burning like fire Guided by desire to their freedom forever Some men believe in God… always praying Hoping another life will come They will look to the sky that is graying Wondering what wrong they have done


“Thank the gods then for Triddana, the Argentinian power folk group who seem determined to teach the world that you don’t have to come from a country whose main exports are snow and beards to make some thunderous folk metal.”
