Track Name: The Mountain Weeps
High above the plains
Stands a mountain tall
High above the plains
Watching over us all

Roots of our forebearer
Buried deep in stone
Stained with the blood of sacrifice

Our wars hold no meaning here
On the cliffs of stone
May our ancestors hear our prayers
The mountain weeps
and grant us courage!

The eminence of the mountain
shines benevolence on her people
In the days of late the mountain weeps
and the tears flow down the river

High above the plains
You will hear the wolf's call
High above the plains
Watching over us all

Our wars hold no meaning here
On the cliffs of stone
May our ancestors hear our prayers
The mountains weeps...

Weeping is the mountain
The flames grows ever higher
I'll join you at the Onan
'neath the mountain's weary eye

Weeping is the mountain
It fills our hearts with fire
And It bleeds into the Onan
and reaches to the sky

Weeping is the mountain
The flames grows ever higher
I'll join you at the Onan
'neath the mountain's weary eye

Weeping is the mountain
It fills our hearts with fire
And It bleeds into the Onan
Today our lord has died

Here lays the halls of long dead ancients
Buried and forgotten in the hills 'neath the sky
Long dead brothers of years long gone by
Their souls live on embodied by the mountain

Like the mighty blade of the Gods reaching on to the Welkin,
and piercing our world as it guides our way to Heaven
Pilgrimage of kings, the mountains sing
somber songs of conflicts long untold

Beacon of hope, legend of old, cliffs of the Gods
tales of our ancestors forever to be told

Beacon of hope, legend of old, cliffs of the Gods
tales of our ancestors forever to be told
Track Name: River Child
Between the glades of jade grass
and the steppes of earth and stone
where the sky was pure and blue
there ran a river so strong and proud

There bore a child of wolf and faun
He fed from the faun and hunted with the wolf
Befriended the falcon and sung with the wind
He was wild and grew to be strong

River child, wild and free!
Come my brothers, and soon you'll see
Grace of the faun and cunning of the hound
No one knows where the child is bound

River child, wild and free
Come my brothers, and soon you will see
Grace of the faun and cunning of the hound
No one knows where the child is bound

In these holy plains
a divine child plays
Forging the path
For all of us to follow

O, gather round my brothers and lay witness to this gift from the gods
A golden child born of the wild lay praise upon him and may he gift us with seeded blood
Nature protects him, the Welkin guides him, the boy painted all in mud

River child, wild and free!
Come my brothers, and soon you will see
Grace of the faun and cunning of the hound
No one knows where the child is bound

River child, wild and free
Come my brothers, and soon you will see
Grace of the faun and cunning of the hound
No one knows where the child is bound

Between the glades of jade grass
and the steppes of earth and stone
where the sky was pure and blue
there ran a river so strong and proud

There bore a child of wolf and faun
He fed from the faun and hunted with the wolf
Befriended the falcon and sung with the wind
He was wild and grew to be strong
Track Name: Warband
Many years have past since we last gathered
Now we stand tall as Gods
Here we stand proud warriors
Returned from the West

War Band
Brothers in arms, you bring honour to the dynasty
War Band
Grizzled and hard, your tales weave a legacy
War Band
Soldiers of the steppe, fullfilling our destiny
War Band!

At last, we now gather
Here in our home land
We have sealed our fates
As rulers of the East!

Together we've rode to battle
We've seen such terrible things
Yet here we stand, returned to our home

We put our enemy to the sword,
and broke them under foot
Their cities we razed,
The Empire reigns!

We fight with growing numbers
Our men rally on
Many have come to fear us
The Empire reigns!

Now a thirst starts to gather
for something more than drink
We were meant to live by the sword

Our quest is never ending
We shall not remain for long
Here my brothers will rise again!

As long as I draw breath
and my heart still beats
I will follow you
Until the very end,

As long as I draw breath
and my heart still beats
I will follow you
Until the very end

With rising glory, we find ourselves
Far away from the East.
We are nomads, we hold no home
We are War band, the Golden Horde.

Rise, together now we will
Fight, again in coming days
We will die before bending a knee and they will
Fly our flag, or fear our name!

Together we've rode to battle
We've seen such horrible things
Yet here we ride, for lands unknown

Our men have grown weary,
Ready to fight again
We were meant to live by the sword

With rising glory, we find ourselves
Far away from the East.
We are nomads, we hold no home
We are War band, the Golden Horde.

War Band
Brothers to the end, we fight together and rule the East
