Dark Lyrics


1. In The Deep Dark Forest

In The Deep Dark Forest
Elders sit by the fire
They are praying for pagan deities
And saying the incantation:

Perun - great god of thunder
Dazhbog - great god of Sun
Chernobog - god of darkness

We're asking for your help for us!
Priests make sacrifice
And idols again in blood
Ancient pagan rituals
Open doors to other world

Svarog - great god of skyfire
Yarilo - god of fertility
Kharachun - god of death!

We're asking for your help for us!

Perun - great god of thunder
Dazhbog - great god of Sun
Chernobog - god of darkness
Svarog - great god of skyfire
Yarilo - god of fertility
Kharachun - god of death!

We're asking for your help for us!
We're asking for your help for us!

2. Vampires' Castle

There exists the legend from long ago
That during fullmoon time
The count of vampires rises again
In the dark forlorn castle.
And awoken by the moonlight
He calls up vampires with
Wolve howling
To a new blood celebration,
From the vault, where he's been
esting for years.
On hearing this call, his servants
Hurry into the castle.
And to have a feast they
Carry live people.
And pour blood in the cups,
It flares up like a flame...
I would like to have a drink
Of human blood at this ball...

3. Ancestors Land

The dim woods, the snowy fields,
The deep lakes - It's my land!
The great warriors, the pagan rituals,
The ancient gods - It's my land!
On my land I stand and I admire It's beauty
It's dim forests and It has dark oakgroves
It has endless fields and It has snowy fields
It has transparent lakes and It has deeply rivers
It's a country of my ancestors'
It's my ancestors land!
Many years ago on that ancient land
Lived, fought and died great warriors
Clanged steel of swords and flew blood of enemies
Many great battles took place in that country
But my ancestors have never kneeled the ground
And they always defeated their adversories.
Once upon a time there worshipped great gods
For true ancient pagan deities
People made sacrifice and prayed them
And now true belief returns
Altars again are standing in the forests
Now we can again come unite with nature.
We again hear call of forests
Blood of ancestors is flowing in our veins
Their voices sounding in our brains
And we sharpen our swords
Great war has just begun
We'll protect our ancient land!

4. Pagan

We bow to you first, Rod, and sing your great glory.
We praise you, the father of all human generations, mighty Svarog.
You are eternal and never freezing source, and he,
who drinks your water, lives until getting on your eternal meadows.
We sing you song, Sviatovid, cause you're the light,
which we seen the world through.
You hold the sun and stars strongly, and give us Yav,
and save us from Nav. We bow to you, Perun - The Thunderer,
that you don't cease to turn life whell and lead us by the way of truth
to the battle and funeral feast above those, who had given their lives
for faith and truth and go to the eternal life, to Perun's regiment.
Glory to you, honour and judge of warriorsm
that you shoot on our enemies and save us from their arrows.
Glory to you, goldenhaired, gracious, truthful...

5. Barbaric Hordes From North

From the clatter of hooves of our battle horses
Trembles and shakes all our Earth,
And thousands of arrows, which covered the sun
For enemies carry death.
And being ready to conquire or die in the fight
We're gonna seize all world
Brave and ruthless, proud and wild,
Barbaric hordes from North.
Our swords are sharpened
Our spears are strong
And nothings gonna save the enemies
We're gonna make the greatest feast
On their broken bones
And drink their blood as wine.
Wild march has begun and quite soon
We'll bring to the knees all that world
Great and evil, true and strong
Barbaric hordes from North.

6. Endless Winter

Cold wind is singing a song to me
About a great snowy land
It revealed me saga about a fairy place
On that huge Earth
I often dream magic dreams of that
By winter enchanted land
And I wanna tell this tale about
The snowly land of the endless winter.
Obeying to the ancient gods' pledge covered
The snows this land throughout for ever
And in rivers, lakes and seas beneath the ice
Flows blue water no more.
Mountains and woods, fields and oakgroves
Are carpented eternally with sparkling cover
Within endless winter's power the whole world sleeps
Eternal fairy dream.
Every thing around keeps silent, no sound is heard
Every single thing is bound by magic silence
And at once dies down into the night
Every thing is white thoroughout,
and there's no life
Which used to be, seen beneath snow
But the bright sun hot arrow will
Never melt the snow
Nothern wizards covered all skies
Through with huge magic black coat
And at the sun dungeon guard stands
Faithful guardsman with sword
Black ravens fly over land
And search for prey among the snows
No one will ever save this land from
Eternal sparkling snowy fetters
And every thing's gonna remain as before
Through years pass by swiftly
Fly with me into this nameless land
Where eternal darkness will rule forever!

7. Son Of Kelagast

On ancient slavonic land
Among woods and swamps
His birth was prophesied by volhvs
He's gonna lead the people
And grand duke was born in a dim forest
By valkiria-maiden
And rix Veselinov gave his son
Great name - Bozh
Hey, Slavs, let's sacrifice to Perun
And rush into the fight again
Bozh will lead us to fight
Against cruel enemies
The troops of our native land brave sons
Ride under the flag of hate
We're gonna bring back our ancient gods
In sacred groves of our great motherland
We are the warriors of winner's race
We carry war to our enemies
And Bozh will lead us like our
Ancestors in bygone days

8. Woodchild

I'm blackraven
I'm a woodchild
I'm bird of gods
I'm a wild warrior
Spirit of ancestors
Wind in your hair
And I fly to you
I'm darkness
I'm sorrow
I'm a cry
I'm a call
I'm a voice
The voice of old times
Your lost wisdom
And I fly to you
I'm woodchild
I am you
I'm your freedom
I'm your belief
I'm your true way
Way in the darkside
Road in the eternity
And you fly with me
