about

The original recording of this song 'Ogham the Blade' was released on Sieben's "Ogham Inside The Night" album, in 2005.

lyrics

The blade

And when we had stripped the birch to supplant with branch of steel. Cold sun spurge the spark extinguished. Score another notch on haft and shield. We drunkship of cobblers on a sea of rain. Our marsh of diseases, our magic a blade. Call upon the blade, harness the pain. Burn down Quert and Sail, caught in the rain. And when we cast down the gentle thorn for scarred Gods’ seasoned bark. Bonfires burn the stars extinguished. We ogham piss the land, our mark. A disorder of sparks, our will firebrand red. Our fire is survival. All magic is dead. Call upon the blade, harness the pain. Burn down Quert and Sail, caught in the rain.
