Track Name: Old Magic
Old Magic
Traust me, scamt land, we are the same:
Heathen and fylde, bleikr and fok. We are the same.
Raise, whirl, unfurl the old magic!
Reisa, whirl, unfurl the old magic words.

Trade knot, skamt land, we are the same:
Heathen, dregg, myrr, drit and rogg. We are the same.
Raise, whirl, unfurl the old magic!
Reisaa, whirl, unfurl the old magic words.

Trust me, scant land, we are the same:
Heathen and field, bleak and fog. We are the same.
Raise, whirl, unfurl the old magic!
Raise, whirl, unfurl the old magic words.
Track Name: Modron
Modron
Modron! Modron!
Hunger as lightening, fear as rain.
Laughter as slaughter.
Our song, our joy, our game.
Brace in our hand, harness in the seed.
Trace in our palm, nurture, charm, and feed.

Anger as lightening, tears as rain.
Hereafter as daftness.
Our skill, our craft, our gain.
Brace in our hand, harness in the seed.
Trace in our palm, nurture, charm, and feed.

Crag, fell and moor. Her soil. Life's will
a mighty grittiness. Celebrate the life.
Black moon, white sun. Our ebb and flow
a honeysuckle bitterness. Celebrate the life.
Of love, of faith. The tension of a bowstring life.
Celebrate the life.
Track Name: Come, Raven King
Come, Raven King
We, of no name – hunkered on Northern moor.
We, of no name – clung to Southern shore.
Come, raven King, ascend to bring harmony to all.
A black moon rise on scattered tribes of fen, fell, and moor.

We, of no name – wading Eastern fen.
We, of no name – straddling on Western fell.
Come, raven King, ascend to bring harmony to all.
A black moon rise on scattered tribes of fen, fell, and moor.
Track Name: Hillfort Mindset
Hillfort Mindset

A hillfort mindset will prevail.
Bring hate, bring nails,
wrapped round a horse's tail.
Bring wood, let bark,
our huddled band in slatted dark.
Bring carnyx, and shattered sound,
a vain hope to gain the higher ground.
Bring forth fear, pure blind zeal,
against a world of tempered steel.

A hillfort mindset will prevail,
if we close our world the magic fails.
Track Name: Ready For Rebellion
Ready For Rebellion

Burn in the blood, burn in the vein.
Burn in our copper heart, grip the harness rein.
Ready for rebellion. Get ready for rebellion!

Sear in the mind, sear in the brain.
Sear in our iron spleen, steel our solid frame.
Ready for rebellion. Get ready for rebellion!
Track Name: Black Moon, Rise Again
Black Moon, Rise Again
Black moon rising! Black moon rising!
Black moon, rise again. Black moon, rise again.
Black moon, rise again. Black moon, rise again.
Track Name: A Hart For St Hubertus
A Hart For St Hubertus

My cross, an antler, once adorned the pagan man.
My voice, a carnyx, heard in shroud of past and rain.
My cross, an antler, to pierce your 'natural order'.
My voice, a carny, a vision you might see in me.
My flesh, His Wound, trophy slaughter of The Lamb.
My flesh, my calf, your Floriban.
Track Name: The Other Side Of The River
The Other Side Of The River

On the other side of the river,
the farthest bank from where we are.
Circled in our palm, see the future,
everyone may share what we possess.
In Užupis. In Užupis.
Don't fight. Don't win. Don't surrender.

Circled in our palm, our unimportance.
Circle in a palm, a right to exist.
Circled in our palm, see the future.
Everyone may share what we possess.
