1. BAGPIPES OF WAR

Outlawed tunes on outlawed pipes
Sounding in the wind
In the heat of every battle
Hold the skiltron high

No forbidding will stop them
When they're coming through
Encouraging a whole army
Standing in the rearguard

Bagpipes of war
Powerful as thunder
Requiem for an epic fight
Bagpipes of war
Prelude of Fury
Let the bagpipes start the war


2. BETWEEN MY GRAVE AND YOURS

My time walking on this land is fading away
But I have no complains, I've done it well
I'm wondering if you can feel the same
Or maybe you realize you've been wasting your days

Now we both lie
But my name lives on
My legend begins now
Between my grave and yours
There's one difference:
Mine doesn't have a cross
My destiny is not heaven or hell

Watching the fire fall all over my ship
Sinking into the sea, down to the depths
Like those that in the past inspired who I was
Now I am there with them and they're proud of me

What have you found in your so beloved paradise?
There's no turning back, you are doomed forever

Now we both lie
But my name lives on
They will remember me

Between my grave and yours
There's one difference:
Mine doesn't have a cross
My destiny is not heaven or hell


3. ONE WAY JOURNEY

Day after day, every way that I take
Is a challenge that I must face
Easier or harder, my walking is constant
I never turn back, you ll never see that

Those who don't know me
Listen to these words
One day I felt that the world
Was falling over me

That was the moment I noticed
Life's not for free
The only way to keep the marching
Is my soul, spirit and will

One way journey and no return
It seems to be the rule
So by my own blood I swear to win
Before I should leave this world

It's an unchosen contract you've signed when you were born
Call it a gift, a sentence or whatever you want
You must be smart to play well and learn

I speak with knowledge
I have been there
I know there's more to come
But now I am prepared

There was a moment I noticed
Life's not for free
The only way to keep marching
Was my soul, spirit and will

One way journey and no return
It seems to be the rule
So by my own blood I swear to win
Before I should leave this world


4. AWAITING YOUR CONFESSION

2000 years of death and lies, that is what you brought
But today we are here to end it now
You have sentenced millions of lives
Thinking you had some king of gift

All we ask is justice for those who died
To feed your ambition
So they can rest in peace

We are waiting your confession
Now it's your turn
Awaiting your confession
Now it's your turn to be hanged

Your arguments are not accepted, where is your god now?
You are about to taste your own medicine
There's no compassion for someone like you
Not even your prayers will save you

And now we know what divine justice means

Centuries of death and lies came to their end
From now on, the Pagan law rules over the world
You ll never deserve to be part if it
Not even your prayers could save you

All we ask is justice for those who died
To feed your ambition
So they can rest in peace

We are waiting your confession
Now it's your turn
Awaiting your confession
Now it's your turn to be hanged


5. A LAST REGRET

Many years have passed
And it seems like you forgot
Forgot it all
But for me it was
Like a ghost living inside
While I harvested my hatred

A last regret
Will it come from you?
I think it wont

A last regret
Will it come from you?
It won't come at all
Your persevered pride
Was always by your side
(Your only friend)

You have never known
What feelings are and what
What are they for

A last regret
Will it come from you?
I think it wont

A last regret
Will it come from you?
It won't come at all

If you look at me now
Maybe you ll know
What I was I'm not anymore

And you would know
Something that
You should've known about
A long time ago

A last regret
Will it come from you?
I think it wont

A last regret
Will it come from you?
It won't come at all
Actually I don't care


6. THE BONFIRE ALLIANCE

In the dark corners of the night,
By the shadows of the trees
Where the fire comes alive fed by wood, straw and wind
In the middle of the night, when the wolves are howling loud
Follow us right to the gathering
While making your torch shine

Like hymns of war, our voices will be heard
The moon will be witness of an oath

We keep the hidden spot for the meeting
This way we honour our forefathers
By us their pride is kept alive
A pact signed with blood

The bonfire alliance the night has come, the time is ours
The bonfire alliance shining flames for the mighty Pagans
The bonfire alliance the night has come over the Highlands
The bonfire alliance brotherhood around the bonfire

Craving the stone while being only a child
Looking through bushes and thorns
How people felt compelled to come
To share and give away their gifts
Making the horns blow up
Naked souls and free spirits
Hearing the call of the wind

The bonfire alliance the night has come, the time is ours
The bonfire alliance shining flames for the mighty Pagans
The bonfire alliance the night has come over the Highlands
The bonfire alliance brotherhood around the bonfire


7. STORM IN LARGS

In 1263, when October came
In the west the Scots marched to a war
Hundreds of ships headed towards the coast
Taking the islands under the clouds

A meeting in Arran couldn't bring peace
And so the troops were led by their king
The rest of the fleet approached the land
Passing by Cumbrae and getting to Largs

The Drakkars were surprised
And they ran aground
The Scots took advantage
And launched an assault
Over the Norwegians

There was no response
The day faded away
They waited in the ships
Until the morning came
Then they landed in Largs

Right there, next to the Hebrides
Stopping centuries of Norse invasions
Terms of peace were offered
But they were not accepted

Storm in Largs Rain falls down
Storm in Largs over Largs

Once in the coast, the king and his men
Lacking in force, sensed a defeat
A major army caused their retreat
Overweighting the ships
Sinking them down

Remaining in the ships
The main body pf the Nordic force
Was unable to fight
The key was the storm
And the Scots finally won

Storm in Largs
Rains falls down
Storm in Largs
Over Largs

9. THROUGH THE LONGEST WAY

We have to understand when we are young
We always have to choose a way
Don't let them do it for you, don't be their puppet
Some people can't think for themselves

Going right, thinking well
Knowing and learning what it's providing
Raise your head and look all around
There's so much to go
Through the longest way

I know that many times you want to leave it
That is when you have to be strong
And know: You have to face it now
And don't get frightened
Don't wait until somebody comes

Everytime you find a brick
Don't let your arms fall down
You will find that the truth is there
Running through
Through the longest way

So at the end, you ll be able to get
Something that will not be stolen from you

Asking yourself if this life makes some sense
I'm afraid you don't know
My advice is to believe
In the earth that gives what is here around
For us all

There is someone who is going to try
To take you with him as a slave
Don't believe lies and don't fall in the claws
Of those who want your life
Cause they can't live by their own


10. JOIN THE CLAN

Trying to get what I have in mind
I felt the need to go far away from here

To a place where I can find myself
Pre and real, honest and free
And now I am there

Come and join in the Clan
Lift you spirit and raise your hands
It's our meaning of life
A nation of freedom where Pagans stand

Just believe in yourself
It must be your own will, share it today
It's a reason to live
A nation of freedom till eternity


11. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN IN BATTLE

(Instrumental)
