Ensiferum - Descendants, Defiance, Domination (Heathen Throne Part III) Lyrics




The darkest hour, the hopeless time
Is always before the rise of the dawn
Find your courage to stand against a stream
The fairest they speak when the falsest they think

When mouths of men speak the words of gods
The truth will never be enough for anyone
When you reach the peak of the highest mountain
Proudly plant the flag of the heathen defiance

From the ashes of the ancient blood and wisdom
The children of thunder will rise again

Wielded lashes, pyres aflame, gloomy gallows
Tormented ones, brave and free
Screams echo in time

Not one unjust deed goes unpunished
No blood is shed in vain under the reborn thunder sign

I know we will
Claim the throne and kill
They asked for war so we will give them one

The one to end it all
Reckoning with blood
Stop the madness that's gone on for centuries

In a storm of obloquy, my sons stand strong
Marshall the forces, gather up weapons for the last war to come

Who is so righteous, uncorrupted to condemn and dominate
With truth and not with illusions
Not driven by the greed to be enthroned and rule?
Havoc no more
The reign of man

    The darkest hour, the hopeless time
    Is always before the rise of the dawn
    Find your courage to stand against a stream
    The fairest they speak when the falsest they think

    (1st Heri Joensen of Tyr - 2nd Petri Lindroos)
    When mouths of men speak the words of gods
    The truth will never be enough for anyone
    When you reach the peak of the highest mountain
    Proudly plant the flag of the heathen defiance

    From the ashes of the ancient blood and wisdom
    The children of thunder will rise again

    Wielded lashes, pyres aflame, gloomy gallows
    Tormented ones, brave and free
    Screams echo in time

    Not one unjust deed goes unpunished
    No blood is shed in vain under the reborn thunder sign

    I know we will
    Claim the throne and kill
    They asked for war so we will give them one

    The one to end it all
    Reckoning with blood
    Stop the madness that's gone on for centuries

    In a storm of obloquy, my sons stand strong
    Marshall the forces, gather up weapons for the last war to come

    etelamkis

    Markus Toivonen does the clean vocals in this song, not Heri Joensen

    Stanislav Žoldak

    That's true, he did however record the Old Norse part of Heathen Horde on this album. :)

    etelamkis

    You are correct :)

  8. Łukasz

    bardzo dziwne

  10. Łukasz

    trochę lol

  11. Mark G

    Dude... Is that a fucking bear with a spear on the background? Awesome song btw

    Pascal Bauweraerts

    a berserker with a bear cape and a broken sword

    Stanislav Žoldak

    He meant the other one.

    Mark G

    It really looks like a bear at first glance, but after analysing a little bit, you can definitely see hands and a head "inside" the bear's mouth... Shame though, it would be really awesome if it truly was a bear on the background.

  12. Jordy

    Love the 2:32 riff and it leading into the final section.

  13. Gergely Bokor

    My soul's food, my mind's drink. My life's song.

  14. Gabriel Dobrea

    such an uplifting song... modern metal at its best... looking forward to see it live!

    Leander Michael

    J Civilis

    Leander Michael

    not sure, if he is a facist fucktard or just trolling
