Wings Of A Butterfly

Heaven ablaze in our eyes 
We’re standing still in time 
The blood on our hands is the wine
We offer as sacrifice 
[Chorus]
Come on, and show them your love 
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul
This endless mercy mile 
We’re crawling side by side 
With hell freezing over in our eyes 
Gods kneel before our crime
[Chorus]
Come on lets show, them your love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
Don’t let go
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
For your soul
[Chorus]
Come on, and show them your love 
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly) 
Don’t let go
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly) [x2]
For your soul

VAN CANTO – Primo Victoria feat. Joakim Brodén (Sabaton)

Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven
Through the Nazi lines
Primo victoria

We’ve been training for years
Now we’re ready to strike
As the great operation begins
We’re the first wave on the shore
We’re the first ones to fall
Yet soldiers have fallen before

In the dawn they will pay
With their lives as the price
History’s written today
In this burning inferno
Know that nothing remains
As our forces advance on the beach

Aiming for heaven though serving in hell
Victory is ours their forces will fall

Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven
Through the Nazi lines
Primo victoria

On the 6th of June
On the shores of western Europe 1944
D-day upon us

We’ve been here before
Used to this kind of war
Crossfire grind through the sand
Our orders were easy
It’s kill or be killed
Blood on both sides will be spilled

In the dawn they will pay
With their lives as the price
History’s written today
Now that we are at war
With the axis again
This time we know what will come

6th of June 1944
Allies are turning the war
Normandy state of anarchy
Overlord

The Red And The Black

The morals of life and the perils of death
Take the wrong way out running out of breath
Meet my match in the afterlife
Suppress the demons that plague the night
A tortured mind is a safe place to go
But the truth lurks down in the dark below
Step inside my inquisitive mind
Are you scared at what you just might find

See myself in the hall of mirrors
A different shape every step I take
A different mind every step of the line
But in the end they are all mine
Laughing sorrow inside your head
Can’t get out just a feeling of dread
I know this burden’s a heavy load
A dark mistake never ending road

The black jack king and the red queen clash
The artful dodger he counts his stash
The joker’s wild like an impish child
While madame fortune she waits inside
The good luck charm is overkill
The tired old soldier says fire at will
Planes overhead go search destroy
The ones below human decoy

I need somebody to save me

Meanwhile we play the waiting game
The clock is struck the horse is lame
And when we think that this is done
Chance your luck a four leafed one
You hedge your bets the battle lost
To wait in vain and count the cost
The thin edged line
Between good and bad
And cast the luck be happy sad

I need somebody to save me

The red and the black
People don’t want the truth
Look in their eyes and you send them away
The red and the black
Fate and hypocrisy
Burden’s a heavy load there is no doubt
The red and the black
All out of luck again
How many chances can anyone have
The red and the black
Treachery out to win
There in the wrong place and at the wrong time

I need somebody to save me

A Rose For Epona – Eluveitie*

Do you feel the thorns?
Do you see the tears?
Do you see the bloodshed in this fell war?

Have you forsaken us?
Have you forgotten our faithful men calling your name?

While I stand before you
While we perish
While I lay down a crimson rose
While holding hands are forced apart
While hopes bog like condemned men
Were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand’s turning old and weak
I’m giving myself upon to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere

In your nemeton
These grey stone walls are cold and silent
As the fallen mother gone deaf
Mistress of shattered hopes
And forever broken dreams
Were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand’s turning old and weak
I’m giving myself upon to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere

Epo, Epo, why has thou forsaken me?
Together we go unsung
Into thy hand I commend my spirit
Together we go down with our people

Were you there?
Were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand’s turning old and weak
I’m giving myself upon to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere

Falling on me…


*Eluveitie (/ɛlˈveɪti/ el-vay-ti) is a Swiss folk metal band from Winterthur, Zurich, founded by Chrigel Glanzmann. The band was formed in 2002 and their first EP, Vên, was released in 2003. Vên was a studio project of Glanzmann’s, but its success led to the recruitment of a full band. They describe themselves as “The new wave of folk metal”. The band then released a full-length album, Spirit, in June 2006. In November 2007, Eluveitie was signed by Nuclear Blast.The first product of the collaboration, Slania, was released in February 2008. The album peaked at number 35 in the Swiss charts and number 72 in the German charts.

Eluveitie use traditional instruments amidst guitars and both clean and harsh vocals. The lyrics are often in the extinct ancient language Gaulish. The name of the band comes from graffiti on a vessel from Mantua (ca. 300 BC).Theinscription in Etruscan letters reads eluveitie, which has been interpreted as the Etruscan form of the Celtic (h)elvetios(“the Helvetian”), presumably referring to a man of Helvetian descent living in Mantua.
