Track Name: Rage Starts Here
Here we go to unleash the motherfucking rage!

We gonna to kill you with fire!

Let’s go!

You are so dismissive
In your blissful arrogance
Lounging on a throne of dull apathy
I despise your pompous selfishness!!!

In whom dwells humanity?
In you and in your frail estates?
All silver and gold
Sorrow now untold
Will you ever find what you have lost?
And what about the man on the edge
who took a jump into unknown?
Everlasting fight
To find sense in his heart
To find the power to do what is right!

Whence I learned to walk now I need to run
To reach the cliff and learn how to fly
While you just crawl in a swamp of Men
Your ideals got buried in the sand
You always said you’ll never be
Like others in their blasphemy
So many people who never care
You’re one of them now, you’ve betrayed yourself!

You’ve betrayed yourself!

Rage - Rage starts here!
Rage - It seems you’re alive!
Rage - Rage starts here!
Seek the power to do what’s right!

You are so dismissive
In your blissful arrogance
I despise your pompous selfishness!

In whom dwells humanity?
In you and in your frail estates?
All silver and gold
Sorrow now untold
Will you ever find what you have lost?
And what about the man on the edge
who took a jump into unknown?
Everlasting fight
To find sense in his heart
To find the power to do what is right!
Track Name: Nezlomni
Nezlomní...

Zborcené páteře pod tíhou věčnosti
Pod půdou země jsou napjaté svaly
Sen beze spánku nic dobrého nevěstí
O strastech, co žití mé opanovaly
Od krku k slabinám jak křídla zakrývá (For our dreams)
Hradba ze štítů mé přátele v zbrani (For our pride)
Se zraky do lůna nevěsta spanilá (For our kin)
Plody svých nadějí navěky chrání (With courageous hearts!)

R: Jsme však nezlomní
Jak srdce héroů ve vznešených bájích
Tak nezlomní
Jako ratiště kopí, jímž Krista pobodali (No one can defeat us now)

Zborcené páteře pod tíhou věčnosti
Pod půdou země jsou napjaté svaly
Sen beze spánku nic dobrého nevěstí
O strastech, co žití mé opanovaly

Jsme nezlomní!
Jak světlo bez zrcadel prýštící světem
Tak nezlomní
Jako rod, co po staletí krev předává dětem
Nezlomní...

(No one can defeat us, No one can beat us down...)
Track Name: Living with Pride
Burn! Burn!

Sometimes my heart trembles
Opression beats me down
There’s no way to endure this
(With legs rooted to the ground)

Rules are here to shape your soul
They want you to forget who you‘re
Addapt to the maze like a rat
Or choose a way out of the crowd!
I’ve made my choice!

This is my family (My tribe!) - My tribe!
This is my destiny (Revolt!) - Revolt!
I’ve made my choice!

Stare at the Sun until it burns out
every dawn at the horizon is yours

R: Now you are free
In the world of deceit
Be yourself
And scream it out
We all live with pride
We all live with pride!
Track Name: Blejanje na mjesec
Jsem ovce zbloudilá, co okovy shodila
Se soumrakem v dalekých kopcích se ztratila
Děkuji pastýřům za luka zelená
Však nemohu, nemohu zhynouti bez jména!

Dalek je sada zvuk frule
I pjesma mog pastira
Te koraci brojni moga stada
Sada - putujem sama!

Mám rouna být zbavena, s osudem smířena
Nemyslet, necítit, jen se stádem spojena
Jít, kam jdou ostatní a utíkat před vlky
Mám být jen bezcenná, bezcenná navěky?

Již nevnímám píšťal
V dálce jsem skrytá
Hledím jen k obzoru
Hledím, jak svítá!
Track Name: Signal Fires
When the birdsongs turn silent
And the veil of dusk covers this land
Dim glare blends with the dropping tears
Of the stars in the horizon

We paddle through silent waters
Besprent by silvered jewels
Cradled by the swaying stream
Knowing our course

Siren's song of misty lands
Echoes among the cliffs
But the embrace of nymphs is fading
The Day comes to its end

Signal fires lighten our path
Beneath the unclouded skies
To the fore of Gods
This ancient mystery
Bonfires forever bound... With our lives

Signal fires lighten our path
Beneath the unclouded skies
This ancient mystery
buried in our hearts
Bonfires forever bound... With our lives

We almost feel the smell of fumes
Harshing in our eyes like incense
What a small price for its gift of guidence
Towards these distant shores
We paddle through silent waters
Besprent by silvered jewels
Cradled by the swaying stream
Knowing our course
(So far away!)

Signal fires lighten our path
Beneath the unclouded skies
To the fore of Gods
This ancient mystery
Bonfires forever bound... With our lives

Signal fires lighten our path
Beneath the unclouded skies
To the fore of Gods
This ancient mystery
buried in our hearts
Bonfires forever bound... With our lives
Sailing away on the fiery ships,
of the future days to come
of the future days to dawn!
Track Name: Cruadalach
On the canvas of the sky there’s a way lead by the silver lady
You’re sailing far beyond nightly horizon
While you yearn for home
Hear the voice of the tribe of
CRUADALACH!
CRUADALACH!

When you’re freezing in snowdrifts of unconquered peaks
Your blood turns cold to the point of no return
There’s always a voice
leading you back home
CRUADALACH!
CRUADALACH!

Listen to the voice of Cruadalach
Our heritage lies in the darkest past
Listen to the voice of Cruadalach!

From the bottom of many seas towards the silver sky
From distant suns to the cradle of time
Wherever you are there’s always a way
Back to the kin, back to friends

Hear the horns from the distant shores
Hear the words of the forgotten gods
Hear that voice of belonging
And you’ll know you’re not alone
Track Name: Morrigan
Smráká se, ale jasně plá
ten oheň tmou, co září v konturách
z letu káňat poznáš znamení,
jež se v tiskává v srdce tvé
Nocí line se vůně obětin
a hořký dým stoupá listovím

Už ráno v krvi utopí se tisíc jestřábů
Co zatím sladce spí
Nebude návratu,
až roh půdu rozduní
a z hnízd vylétnou ptáci do všech stran

Morrigan, nech rozeznít svůj hlas
ať perutě tvé spasí můj střemhlavý pád
Morrigan, zapal moji krev,
ať k branám otců svých se opět navrátím!

Morrigan...

Pro tuto noc neusínám, jenom stínům hlavy stínám
Nad krajem se přízrak vznáší, já táži se, zda přec jen sním
Tlukot křídel stále sílí, kupředu se střemhlav řítí
S rudým sluncem křik bohyně předzvěstí je vítězství!

Morrigan, jsi popel z padlých hvězd
a jednou jsem i já, bohyně ukrutná
Morrigan, zapal moji krev,
ať k branám otců svých se opět navrátím
Track Name: For My Bleeding Friends
There are too many people roaming the Earth
Too often you ignore their faces in the streets
Too often you follow only your needs
Cause it would be too hard to see their souls bleed

I don’t pretend to be a Pagan God
As if I could with what I feel inside
As if I care if you think that I have a weakened heart
I just believe that what is torn apart
Can be healed when you discover how to shine
No matter if you think that you’re a broken one

That you’re a broken one...

So this is for my bleeding friends!

If it sounds emo to you - Maybe you’re too great
If it sounds emo to you - Please, go fuck yourself
If it sounds emo to you - Well, I don’t care

If it sounds emo to you - Maybe you’re too great
If it sounds emo to you - Please, go fuck yourself
If it sounds emo to you - Just cut yourself

Just cut yourself!

All around you see potential friends
With the same worries as you, with all that fear and pain,
Some of them glow, and some just need to be lightened
But you can’t understand them all since you are not the fucking Christ

If it sounds emo to you - Maybe you’re too great
If it sounds emo to you - Please, go fuck yourself
If it sounds emo to you - Well, I don’t care

If it sounds emo to you - Maybe you’re too great
If it sounds emo to you - Please, go fuck yourself
If it sounds emo to you - Just cut yourself
Track Name: Hear our Voices!
That was possibly the best day of my life
When I stood still and realized:
thinking i could hear, but never listened to my heart

I thought I’m alone and about to fall
Yet there are some who call me
so I answered their call

Hear our voices - Piercing the silence
Hear our voices - Let’s go far away
Hear our voices - You know we’re with you
Hear our voices - So keep your faith!

I know I am stubborn like a bull when I think that I know what’s the best for me
Filled with scorn towards the crowd yet deaf like a sheep
I retreat before I try to achieve
what you are and your way of life
your visions and hopes which separate you from the crowd
Now I thank Gods that you had the patience to teach me
that sometimes the most precious jewels are not the most glaring ones

Hear our voices - Piercing the silence
Hear our voices - Let’s go far away
Hear our voices - You know we’re with you
Hear our voices - So keep your faith!

I’m so ashamed for being blind towards your glare
I don’t have excuse for my lack of care
We are just human so we have to discover
that sometimes we burn out by our own fire

Now I’m stunned by your dreams - Thanks for inspiring me for the rest of my life
I swear that I will percieve your words that teach me how to be a better guy

I found that your oceans can calm my wounds
If I get at least the echoes of your words...
Track Name: The Promise
For me...
My forefathers died...
I’m so grateful for their fight
The fight that saved me
From all my despair
For this they became
the speechless stones
and trees - to remain...
I’ll remember them
Till time comes and
I’ll be struck muted...
