Lyrics


1. Rozelowe

A river cuts the land in half
Each side of it equally beautiful
Willows and oaks, rough and old
They still hold the voices of birds

A touch of green revives the nature
And the sun brings back all living
Spring has finally come
Overhelming one with pleasure

Seems as if the trees try to tell
The stories they heared long ago
Nothing has changed in 800 years
Listen carefully for this is true...


2. However Rich A Man May Be...

It?s springtime and close to june
Forest and country are fresh and green
For duke and mistress-ready for hunt
Await for the trek of the duke

The call of wild of redeer and of swine
It entice the lord to stay here
It entice the baliffs daughter too
A girl-just a gracious wife
He starts to loving her-after all the time

However rich a man may be
He has eyes but still can`t see
What there is to come tomorrow
And what the future holds for him
All his money will not be
A guide through life for him

From all parts of his land-peasants arriveed
To bait the wild for their duke
They hunt with spears with arrows and
with dogs
Each lord of the duke`s land-
they let it know
The duke calls up-for coming on

However rich a man may be
He has eyes but still can`t see
What there is to come tomorrow
And what the future holds for him
All his money will not be
A guide through life for him


3. The Wizard

At the court of the duke
There lives an old magican
Who tries to heal his master
In every way he can

He looks into his masters heart
Foreseeing his love with a woman

A dream is haunting him every year
Of a young child and a white woman
The vision of a terrified face

At the court of the duke
There lives an old magican
Who tries to heal his master
In every way he can

Promising misfortune
With bloody judgement
Worried about the master`s face
He advises him on avoiding
ROZELOWE...


4. Beauty At Everytime

But still, the wise man`s vision
Could never change the duke`s decision
His master now seeks joy in haunting
And all his men join in with him

At the end of the day,
returning home,
he sees the girl
among the people

[DUKE:] "Do tell me, man, who is the child?"
[VOIGT:] "My master, what is your intension?
She`s of my own blood and to be
married soon, will you be quest?"
[DUKE:] "I witnessed her how she grew up
her beeing prettier with every year
just like a flower that`s blooming
fall an now I call up my right!"

But still, the wise man`s vision
Could never change the duke`s decision
His master now seeks joy in haunting
And all his men join in with him


5. Primae Noctis

A tradition old and cruel
It`s rulers pleasure, it`s peasant`s pain
A rule that was born long ago
Only for the benefit of one!

Einst ein F?hne Gnaden
Hat Weib, hat Kind, hat keine Plagen
Ihn qu䬴 die Unruh` Tag und Nacht!
In seinen Tr䵭en ihn - Maria lacht!

Maria ein Weib von minderem Stand
Hat Vater, hat Mutter, hat einen Mann
Arm ist sie, kann trotzdem lieben,
Karg ist ihr Haus - doch ist sie zufrieden!

Der F?hr lockt mit Ruhm und Glanz
Ihrem Manne, die Treue h䬴 sie voll und ganz
Der Herr beruft sich auf alt Pergament,
Ein Recht, das sich -PRIMAE NOCTIS- nennt
Die erste Nacht will der F?ich bewahren
Maria bleibt treu es ist ihr Verderben...!

Ein Ritus alt und garnicht Recht
Dem Herren gut dem Bauern schlecht
Gemeines Gebot aus alten Tagen,
Nur einer wird sich daran laben!


6. Franziskus

Put in chaines the poor girl suffered
And the duke creates his plans
He send Franziskus the old Monk,
So she would learn about her fate

[Monk:] "The lord`s not master of his temper
He will kill your father, kill your man
Give in, I plead you, or he`ll make it true!"
[Girl:] "Oh, Franziskus, I can`t do it
Been so happy but it faded
I love my father
I love my man
I will be faithful, whatever will come!"

Beeing told her decision
[The lord explodes:] "She lived to die, now it will be!"


7. Lived To Die

Anonymous and all in black
His right-tightly holding the axe
The axe-inevitable for the work
The executioner is waiting silently

They lived to die so bitterly!
[Duke:] "So end her father`s live now
and leave her pleading for hers own!"
[Girl:] "Master, still you never get
what someone else has already won!"

They lived to die so bitterly!
[Duke:] "Be quiet now it is enough!
My rage is only growing
Proceed-and kill her lover

Again the shadow moves...


8. Liebe, Ha߬ Neid Und Verderben

Es ward ein M䤣hen, sie ward gar nicht alt
Jung und sch?muߴ gehn von der Welt

Liebe, Ha߬ Neid und Verderben...
Aus welchem Grund muߴe sie sterben?

Es ward der Neid, ihr grausiger Tod
Ich sing dies Lied euch Euch von Leiden und Not!

Liebe, Ha߬ Neid und Verderben...
Aus welchem Grund muߴe sie sterben?


9. Disobediance

One morning the duke then
Is looking down the courtyard
A sight so cruel and cold,
An act of violence-so senseless,
The silence is like a moaning scream,
Death takes everything, just like here...

With the sun the light is fading...
"Did the murder change my world?"

Who am I-am or beast?
I did it but still lost
Did I speak fair words in my decision,
Or was it just an awful murder?
I`m of royal blood, noble and pure
I can`t be the murder once more

I want to lead my people with just hand,
My disgrace shall be forgotten then
I want to ban the devil from my body,
to reach the holy blessing now

Some days later, the duke is haunting
He meets two poachers by surprise
"Who has given you the right to hunt?
At this old tree you shall find death
The words I speak?, they are the law,
Disobediance is paid with death!

I`m of royal blood and I will rule,
Who disobeys me is to lose!
He is to lose everything he owns,
For my anger is my world`s rule
The words I speak, they are the law,
DISOBEDIANCE is paid with death!"
