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, Hunter’s 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

The Brotherhood

Bring me before the conclave
For I have listened to what they gave
What sun’s glow?
Shining steel to show
Bring me before the High Authority
I shall represent His glory
Wholeness circles the shield
Ever blooming, immortal field
Noble Prince of Lion’s sight
King of Beasts cower from brow’s light
The Eye thus to tame steel
Victory, One must first feel
Noble Lady to ever honour
Touch of grace to ever ponder
Daughter and Mother of God
It is I fair lady, your loyal Dog
Thus the steel has been found
Noble Brotherhood, arise from ground
Humility, I bring before thee
In balance we ever see
