The Black Oak Coven

Countless voices call out our name
Countless names, never one same
Silent whispers in our sleeping hearts
Awake, awake, a new sun, a new start
Endless souls, we hear their pained cries
Endless voices, the fated who died
Countless souls, we hear their ecstatic bliss
Ancestral power, so long we have missed
Endless wails, we hear a single furious roar
Arise, arise, raven’s wings shall soar
Denounce the slaves of the jealous one
Traitors all! Each one do shun
Break the chains of imposed decree
Rise from our blood, rise for all to see
Cast down the shaven lamb, the enslaved soul
Reclaim, reclaim what the slavemaster stole
The thunder roars, whom do you hear!?
Stand ever tall, cast away foreign fear
The storm wind wails, what do you feel!?
Arise ever high, never again will they steal
Walk ever proud children of earth and mist
Proclaim our blood truth, voice of iron fist
The traitors are many, their weakness does crawl
Stride as the giant, cast down false lineage small
Know whom you are, know each your scar
Healed are our wounds, never again wander far
Sanctity and honour, knock upon death’s door
Traitorous land of false brothers, a declaration of war.

Endless Cycle

The darkness is falling
The shadow is calling
My secret, mine alone
Black wings have grown
You should not be here
The void, do not stare
My darkness is falling
Blood crow is calling
You are weak, her sweet hiss
My lover, her honeyed kiss
In pain purge thyself
Darkness, my only wealth
Punishment and broken skin
Alone, alone, no ancient kin
Beaten body my soothing spell
Of the stars I have fell
My darkness is falling
The endless cycle calling
You must leave my side
I must go die
Do not linger long
Listen not to this song
Feel not this burden
My death is certain

 

 

The Gallowglass

I am no knight
For harder I do fight
I have not my grandfather’s land
My own feet I do stand
I have not my father’s sword
The only truth my promised word
I was not born of silk and gold
Of the earth my hands are sold
I have not my family’s steed
Not the nobles unearned greed
My steel does not shine bright
Blackened from the true fight
Weak are not my legs
I must walk, the gift God gave
I have not unearned glory
Of my hands, my immortal story
Upon no softened throne do I sit
The open sky my mantled gift
I have not a gilded sword
Axe of earth, my promised word
I have not the sinews weak
Of the wild I do speak
Of crawling gold I do not shine
Under Oak, I do dine
I am no knight
For harder I do fight
Of blood and dirt I have learned
Castles and thrones I shall burn

Solstice Flame

Riders! Stormwind’s Wild Ride!
I summon thee, oath bound to my side!
Huntsmen! The Huntsman does cry!
Oath bound, oath bound, to me come fly!
Ever stand, brothers of pride!
Come, come glowing who died
The life stream we stalk
Speakers who walk
As conquerers you come
We shall conquer the sun
Beside me do stand
Watch over my land
Blood of the clan
Beside you I stand

Summer Traveller

When the ice breaks we shall travel
When the snow lifts the sails unravel
In flower’s bloom we shall leave
Never will destiny deceive
Blessed life there is to lose
A worthy life, the steps we choose
Gather thy strength in giant’s storm
Embrace the path woven by Norns
In ice find strength and rest
Unknown waters come, all perils jest
Tar the ships, prepare the mead
Sharpen axe, thy only need
In winter grow strong thy shield
In summer we go to distant fields
Blessed life there is to lose
A worthy life, the steps we choose
Forge thy hand for unknown fate
For fate has chosen death’s date
Tar the ships, smoke the meat
Strong thy heart, fate to greet
Honour the spirits, ancestral blood
Oaths of valour and deeds of love
Mount the serpent and head of beast
Our ships travel to Immortal Feast
When wolves howl under hunter’s moon
Prepare thyself for our coming doom
When crows cry victory’s call
We are the dead who never fall
Blessed life there is to lose
A worthy life, the steps we choose
