Cast out your fear boys, this time is ours!

No man shall break this line!

No shield, no sword, no spear alike

will trail our mountain this time!


Through swing of axe and splintered bone

we feast tonight on thy marrow

No false king shall invade our home

we’ll bury them in graves a’shallow


Our arrows will rain upon common foe

a blanket of blackest night

We shall give need of rememberance

when they curse us ‘Give back our light!’


No spirit will break in this dire hour

our country has need of you all!

No fear shall grip or rain a’shower

kings men you are many and tall!


Forget thy shouts, forget these dreggs

they have nothing on us bastards!

They have piss and shit running down they’re legs

no comforts to them will have lasted!


Now I lead you brothers out this day

to crush our enemy into dust,

To dine on blood and flesh this day

greet the cloak of death if needs must


Go forth! Go hard!

rain blow, rain shard

bring force to nail with hammer

bring death, bring glory

To kings name and surely

Our names shall live on forever!
