Sons of Fire and Steel
Bloody red glow came into sight to brighten
Dance darkness of night up
Gods gave rise to a new war!
This was is not just a war
Today brothers kill each other!
Treason has reared itself a throne
Enemy poisoned our people's souls
By deceit and damnation...
Bloody glows brighten the night up
Echoes brought cry of dying men
We were looking and waiting
Ready to fight
Ready to inflict deadly blows!
Strange god brought treason
Poisinong hearts of many brave warriors!
Every day was bringing pain and disease
Dark clouds covered the sky
Wind brought smell of blood
Dark clouds covered moon up
Our hearts froze
We heard voices of death
Waiting for our day
We prepared sharp arrows and swords
Today Gods give us a sign :
We can take revenge now
Feeling cold touch of our swords
Enemy will learn what fear is
Let rivers of blood be our work
Strangers brought false faith
They turn against our native Gods
They will be damned forever
And their faith will burn with them in hell!
It is time to leave forest
Daybreak is coming
It is time to start a battle
Under a cover of mourning fog
I heard a voice talking to me :
Faithfulness is your honour
Songs of fire and steel
Never forget these words
Packs of hungry wolves are waiting for their blind victims at the edge of dense wood...
Red from hatred wild eyes burn with fierce fire...
Hunger for blood...
Hunger for hearts...
Hunger for mangled throats...
Devour their entrails with pain...
Soon they will satisfy their hunger...
Victims are coming
Cross held in hand will lose certainty...
When pitiless death reach throats of terrified slaves of Christ...
Nothing will save them...
Soon their dead bodies will mark end of their march...
March of fools and clowns,
Blind men full of conceit...
Three nights ago one could see fire blows on the horizon...
Emblems and trophies of my friends were burning...
Smell of blood and smoke brought answer...
We knew that this day would come and we would start a battle against Christ's servants...
Witches knew what to do...
They went to the deepest parts of the woods to summon wild allies
We sharpened our swords...
And fed fire with mead
We were waiting for those that had our brothers' blood on their hands
Blind men came in rags...
Only just few miserable human mere pittance...
Something scared them...
They were not full of conceit anymore...
Fear blunt their greedy looks...
Their god left them...
Our wolves had a huge feast...
Witches did their job...
Our enemy fled in a panic straight in our swords...
It made me happy...
It always make me happy when wolves kill my enemies...
We did not wait for a long time...
Our leader did not know what pity was...
We started a battle when we heard horns...
My eyes delighted with massacre...
My hand inflicted deadly blows...
Cry of dying men made me feel as wild anymal...
I imbrued with blood mud...
Last of Christ's slaves hit with spear fell down...
Before he died we tore cross of his neck...
There was no alive christian among us...
Our leader ordered us to find a body of their lord and cut his head off and impale him...
To satisfy gods of woods and spirits of our ancestors...
We showed his dead body to people to frighten our foes and give pleasure to our woman and children.
This man that dared to baptize and plunder primeval lands of my ancestors was punished
And now his body lies in Gniezno cathedral
And his name is damned among my folk forever
Sacrifice for Honour
Sit down brave warrior!
Your journey is finished
Now you do not have to
Be afraid of guileful foe
You are among old oaks
Protected by holy place
Look at bloody rivers
No rays from the sky come down
Birds do not build nests
Wolves eat rotting carcass
Warmth of holy fire will heal your wonds
Fire's sheen will bring calm to your soul
Today you are in a holy forest
Where fire blazes fed blood and mead
Your women and children died
Fire destroyed your village
Don't think about pain
They are with you now, here
And they will stay with you forever
Among holy trees
Your guileful foe will never rest
These lands belong to you
Let your foe be damned forever
Look! Your friends betrayed you
Plundering your granary
And greedily dividing your lands
They paid their footing in foe's
Farvour by accepting strange faith
They will die in Swarog's fire!
Strong winds and thunder-storms are coming
Filling your enemies with terror
Because they have treason in hearts and disgrace
And falsehood is their religion
True faith of native land will resist
Bought at the price
Of shed blood of brave warriors
It will return at the full sheen of glory
And then we will return from distant lands
To stand by Perun's side
You were fighting bravely
Spilling seas of blood
Christians will remember your name
And your bloody pitiless deeds!
Gods appreciated your sacrifice!
