King’s Prayer

God, grant me the strength to die well
For this day I am the bringer of hell
Grant me your righteous wrath
For this day I must kill all in my path
I see weariness in my brave men’s eyes
Not one amongst them fears to die
I see bodies bruised and broken
Bloody hands and words unspoken
Battered steel, so much they gave
Everything given, a kingdom to save
For the sea devil’s we cast back to the sea
Blessed by Your power, a victorious decree
The Hardest of kings came to fight
His army did not see the night
Housecarls held the shield wall strong
Crimson sunset, blooded day long
Such bravery, I could ask for not more
But to fight again, the new invasion of our shores
The Ravager has come to rule and to take
Quickly my brethren, no time to forsake
With all haste we marched through night and day
Brave weary Housecarls, so much they gave
My brothers, again we must stand strong
Today our lives are no longer long
By oath I will fall upon this field
By oath we must die gripping the shield
My wife, I do love you with all of my heart
My children, I miss you with each days new start
I will never see nor touch you again
For this day the angels heaven does send
My brothers, hold the shield wall strong
Fury and vengeance, our days are no longer long
By oath I will fall upon this field
By oath we must die gripping the shield
Our names shall be whispered by our sons
Long shall be our line, bravery never shunned
Millenia passed, when our blood falls to knee
We shall be archangels, to rise our decree
A blessed word in our children’s ear
Death my child, you must never fear
By oath I will fall upon this field
By oath we must die gripping the shield

Harii’s Moon

Dogs bark at many things in the night
Settle thyself, feel not fright
Only beware the Harii’s moon
A night of sacrifice and doom
When no moon shines at night
The ghosts come out to fight
No territory is too deep
The dead travel not on feet
Riders of the storm wind’s call
On such nights dynasties fall
In shadow sheathed and revealed
Blackened fury by forest concealed
The first strike a whispering storm
The second strike ghosts now form
The third strike thunder’s roar
Hunter’s fury, storm winds soar
Upon great oak in High One’s name
Headless inverted bodies hang
Dogs bark at many things in the night
Settle thyself feel not fright
Only beware the Harii’s moon
In silent darkness hides your doom

Essence

I call upon the ninety eight thousand Gods of War
Riders of the Divine Wind, Hunter’s steel does soar
I invoke the ninety eight thousand Gods of Budo
On humble knee stands my roots, an Oak who seeks to grow
I call upon the Dragons of fire’s tongue, hallowed is thy brow
I invoke the Dogs of death’s pursuit, silent is thy growl
Ride, Ride forth! Eyes of Lightning’s fury
Ride, Ride forth! Forever is your glory
I call upon the ninety eight thousand Gods of War
Frenzied Storm, Warders of Great Heaven’s door
I invoke the ninety eight thousand Gods of Budo
On humble foot bows my roots, an Oak who seeks to grow

Hunter’s Way

I am the Dog of Bushido
Path of lightning, I do glow
I am desperate to live, crazy to die
Serve endlessly until in ground I lie
I will follow while leading
Be the first to fall bleeding
Without hesitation nor fear
Until death, I do swear

I am the Fox named Shinobi
In shadow and void I see
Nine masks I wear, nine lies I speak
In dreams, in darkness I seek
Emptiness I whisper, a lullaby sung
Honeyed smile hides poisoned tongue
Unseen ghost, bringer of disgrace
Never will you know my face

Raven Of No Nest

Visions of midnight mist
Thirteen in number, sight of bliss
Why do you hide from scent of blood?
Do we not give our endless love?
Why do you stampede a silent sound?
Did we not reveal the Way thus found?
Look at you, weak and fallen
Look at you, stagnant and sullen
We were sent to strike you down
You, you must be found!
We cast you down, break upon stone
Only deeds forge eternal throne
We cast you down to patheticly crawl
Embarrassed, alone to feel ever small
We isolated you in circle false, circle fake
Cast away, a rescuing quake
We caged you in coffin of tempered metal
Did you not seek death, weak fragile petal?
We took away your ability to walk
You, you who refused to stalk
We drained your blood to watch you trip
Sharp our tongues, fear we equip
We rejected you, feel not our love
Seek, seek, oceans of honey will flood!
It was a pleasure to cut your skin
Fear, fear, your eternal sin!
Walk, walk as one eternally lame
Fear struck you low, you of no name!
You asked to live, ever live
Did we not swiftly give, ever give?
Did we not part the blinding mist?
Did we not bestow fury’s gift?
Why in silence do you roar?
Do you accept unbalanced score?
Why in rage do you not sing?
Will you not take the throne of kings?

Salted Honey

I have so little time left
Every day a rapid theft
Today may be the date
Follow, ever follow fate
I wish to live, ever live
To give, ever give
To feel, ever feel
This very moment, one deal
To live with a full heart
Each day a new start
I desire the fire of passion’s lust
For soon I will be dust
I desire every ecstatic touch
To never walk with a crutch
Oh to taste, to ever taste
Desire never to forsake
I wish to hear her moan
This blessed night, a loan
I wish to feel fury’s fire
The cut of sacred blade’s choir
I wish to bleed, ever bleed
In honey plant my seed
I desire her tender embrace
To hear her voice of grace
I wish to feel my heart roar
Blood pulse to soar
Frenzied blush of chest
Oh, to feel such caress
I wish to take from he who fights
Strife, strife of delight
Victory’s noble call
Touch to cause thy fall
I wish to fail and lose
The rest fate must choose
Oh, wild horn of He
Blooded moon of She
Take me when I do crawl
Thunder, my last fall
I wish lightning to take me
In the grove none may see
Never again will I talk
Eternal, a silent walk
I swear, I swear by fate
Destined is the date
Lightning, please take me
In the grove none may see
I swear, I swear by fate
To pass through eternal gate
Storm, I raise sword high
To lead again the wild ride
Fallen, fallen so low
Acorn must break to grow
Rise high towards sky
Destined, destined to die
Broken bones and blood
Frenzied tears of love
I wish lightning to take me
In grove none may see
If not chosen this day
I will find The Way
I swear, I swear by fate
Destined is the date
This day I shall live, ever live
Take all passion has to give
