1. SEAFARER'S DREAM

(Instrumental)


2. RUM, WOMEN, VICTORY

What should one do when darkens the sky
When in the horizon enemies’ sails arise?
What should one do when there is a need
To fool the approaching death, to do a hero's deed?

We rule the Seven Seas!
Swords high for our Queen!
Shout for what we live:
Rum, women, victory!

What should one do when the answer's not there
On the highest mountain, or the deepest sea bed?
What should one do if not fully alive?
Face looming death with a grin and the nectar of courage


3. ANDROMEDA

Woe to the one
Who boast in front of the Gods
Woe to the God
Who is petty and jealous to mortals

Woe to the beast
Who blindly obeys
Woe to the king
Who, like a fool, sacrifices his own kin

Gods and heroes shall fade away in time
She will live forever
Our queen Andromeda

Why is it hollow fame that men seek?
And love the beast inside of you and me

"You shall not harm the maiden of my dreams
Come and face your demise, monster of the deep!"

Gods and heroes shall fade away in time
She will live forever
Our queen Andromeda

Gods and heroes shall fade away in time
She will live forever
Our queen Andromeda

Pages of time crumble before our eyes
Unlike the awe for immortal skies

"You shall not have the maiden of my dreams
Kneel, flee or I'll cast a curse of stone upon thee!"

Gods and heroes shall fade away in time
She will live forever
Our queen Andromeda

Gods and heroes shall fade away in time
She will live forever
Our queen Andromeda


4. THE DEFENCE OF THE SAMPO

Row my brave brothers
The darkest moment is here
On these murky waters
Have perished many heroes

With our might and magic
We have come so far
Fighting men and beasts
For the treasure that is ours

No monsters of the sea
No threat from above
Can keep us from returning
To home where we belong

The wicked witch called the winds
Made the storm rise with fury
The rage upon these waters
In anger they were roaring

Fear not my brothers
Mourning won't save from evil
Unlike our wielding swords
Tonight we shall revel in splendor

No monsters of the sea
No threat from above
Can keep us from returning
To home where we belong

No monsters of the sea
No threat from above
Can keep us from returning
To home where we belong

No monsters of the sea
No threat from above
Can keep us from returning
To home where we belong

No monsters of the sea
No threat from above
Can keep us from returning
To home where we belong

To home where we belong


5. RUN FROM THE CRUSHING TIDE

Far away, so long ago
The oldest story that has ever been told
A boy and a girl, a pure, forbidden love
Nothing, not even a roaring sea, could keep these hearts apart

Sun, moon and stars
Nature, bless our love
All I need is you by my side
Oceans, divide!

Run for your life (Don't look behind)
Run from the lies (Don't apologize)
Run for the love (We'll never hide)
Run from the crushing tide

Sent away, he was locked behind the walls
Desperate escape, they rose against the world
Her father summoned a demon and cursed the islands apart
Trembling seabed, the last embrace before the flood

Sun, moon and stars
Nature, bless our love
All I need is you by my side
Oceans, divide!

Run for your life (Don't look behind)
Run from the lies (Don't apologize)
Run for the love (We'll never hide)
Run from the crushing tide

Run for your life (Don't look behind)
Run from the lies (Don't apologize)
Run for the love (We'll never hide)
Run from the crushing tide

Run for your life (Don't look behind)
Run from the lies (Don't apologize)
Run for the love (We'll never hide)
Run from the crushing tide

Run for your life (Don't look behind)
Run from the lies (Don't apologize)
Run for the love (We'll never hide)

Run from the crushing tide
Run from the crushing tide
(Run from the crushing tide)
Run from the crushing tide
(Run from the crushing tide)
Run from the crushing tide
(Run, run, run, run, run from the crushing tide)


6. FOR SIRENS

War rages inside me
Deny the sweet lie from me

I want to see, I want to feel
I don't care if it's not real
I have to go, unchain me
Because the flesh is weak

In my dreams, I cry for more
Nothing is the way it was before

I feel like a sea without a shore
Let my heart go!
I curse the day, I heard your call
Let my heart go!

Soul, eternally bewitched
Home and peace, do they even exist?

I want to see, I want to feel
I don't care if it's not real
I have to go, unchain me
Because the flesh is weak

In my dreams, I cry for more
Nothing is the way it was before

I feel like a sea without a shore
Let my heart go!
I curse the day, I heard your call
Let my heart go!

Hear now, heed the words of wisdom
The peril is waiting for you
Fear not, cling yourself to wisdom
Survive the torment of souls
The serenity after a storm

In my dreams, I cry for more
Nothing is the way it was before

In my dreams, I cry for more
Nothing is the way it was before

I feel like a sea without a shore
Let my heart go!
I curse the day, I heard your call
Let my heart go!


7. ONE WITH THE SEA

It's been so long
I've lost count
The days grow colder
The waves have frozen

I can't turn back time and change fate
I guess it was never in our hands anyway

How could we be so utterly blind?
How could we think that we were God-like?
How could we kneel before tyrants?
How could we live for ages in fear and denial?

No more fighting
Just the abyss
Soon I'll be
One with the sea

No more pretending
Only the bliss
Soon I'll be
One with the sea

Why did we wait for an unknown savior?
Why we couldn't face eye-to-eye our nature?
Why in the hearts of men, lives the urge for illusion?
Why does it scare us so to let go and return back home?

No more fighting
Just the abyss
Soon I'll be
One with the sea

No more pretending
Only the bliss
Soon I'll be
One with the sea

No more fighting
Just the abyss
Soon I'll be
One with the sea

No more pretending
Only the bliss
Soon I'll be
One with the sea (One with the sea)

No more fighting
Just the abyss (Just the abyss)
Soon I'll be
One with the sea (One with the sea)

No more pretending
Only the bliss (Only the bliss)
Soon I'll be
One with the sea (One with the sea)
One with the sea (One with the sea)
One with the sea


8. MIDSUMMER MAGIC

Once again
It's that time of the year
When we gather to feast
And praise the thunder God
With a humble offering

Behold, our sun is still in the sky
Tonight, no one sleeps
Engulf the bonfires

Carouse and sing
We're living the dream
Living the dream

Lakes and fields
Will of the wisps
Ancient rites
On midsummer night

Lust and fire
Raise your pints
Magic thrives
On midsummer night

Huh! Hah! Hey!
Take a peek in the lake
See your bride or groom
Run naked in the fields
Under the bright summer moon

May your crop be fine
May you dwell in love
May your hangover be gone
Before winter comes

Carouse and sing
We're living the dream
Living the dream

Raikaa ja tulvii rakas isänmaa
Laulua, taikoja, juhannussimaa
Ah-lie-ah-la-la-ah-lie (Hey!)
Ah-lie-ah-la-la-ah-lie (Hey!)
Ah-lie-la, lie-ah-la-la, hoo! Ha! Hey!
Ah-lie-ah-la-la-ah-lie (Hey!)
Ah-lie-ah-la-la-ah-lie (Hey!)
Ah-lie-la, lie-ah-la-la, hoo! Ha! Hey!

Hetken vain nuori lempi roihuaa
Kohta on talvi ja kuolo ovella
Ah-lie-ah-la-la-ah-lie (Hey!)
Ah-lie-ah-la-la-ah-lie (Hey!)
Ah-lie-la, lie-ah-la-la, hoo! Ha! Hey!
Ah-lie-ah-la-la-ah-lie (Hey!)
Ah-lie-ah-la-la-ah-lie (Hey!)
Ah-lie-la, lie-ah-la-la
Ah-lie-la, lie-ah-la-la
Ah-lie-la, lie-ah-la-la, hoo! Ha! Hoo! Ha! Hey!

Lakes and fields
Will of the wisps
Ancient rites
On midsummer night

Lust and fire
Raise your pints
Magic thrives
On midsummer night
Yeah!

Midsummer night!
Raise your pints!
Magic thrives on midsummer night!


9. COLD NORTHLAND ( VÄINÄMÖINEN PART III)

Oh, cold Northland
Hear the cry of your children
For the plague corrupts this land
Heed the words of enlightenment

Ungrateful deceiver
Corruptive lies-feeder
Born from the abomination
Self-righteous life drainer

I see right through you
The words of poisonous hope
Your greed destroys the world
You can't fool me, I'll fight till I fall!

I will leave with a heavy heart
The land of snow and the Northern Star
May the song of the old
Lead you until I return back home

Sons of the North, hear my call
Rise and fight!
Turning a brother against another
That's their desire

You made the choice
Or was it made for you?
I might be gone (I might be gone)
But I will never abandon you

Oh, cold Northland
Can't you see your beauty anymore?
Your lakes and groves
Your forests and shores
From nature, you were born

I will leave with a heavy heart
The land of snow and the Northern Star
May the song of the old
Lead you until I return back home
May the song of the old
Lead you until I return back home!

With strength, you have stood
Don't forsake your roots
Don't give up on hope
Soon the plague will be no more

I will leave with a heavy heart
The land of snow and the Northern Star
May the song of the old
Lead you until I return back home

I will leave with a heavy heart
The land of snow and the Northern Star
May the song of the old
Lead you until he returns back home
