Under the Grey BannerEdit

Normal LyricsEdit

["The coast of the Southlands stretches countless miles, with jagged rocks like a Dragon's teeth, hopeless marshlands and many pirate coves of sea-borne bandits. But such was not the sight that the Islander saw when he finally laid his weary eyes upon dry land. The fabled beaches just a day's ride south of Westmar with their soft dunes seemed so much like those he had left at home, or even of the Ivory Shores which his uncle had once seen in his youth. Utterly exhausted when he touched upon firm ground and still mourning his lost friends, he could still barely contain himself. For he was well aware what mighty a sight and many-spired radiancy that lay to the north; the jewel of the west, the pride of men - the Royal City of Westmar"]

I raise up my head and gaze upon silvery seashores

with the sand on my feet and with the sun on my back

For days the coast leads my journey shining in the misty dew I see


There, a thousand spires

Glowing like fire in the sun

I see them rising o'er these open plains

And I know I shall remember forever

how I saw a thousand towers white


When young I was told

Of a city of might and of honour

An empire's crown, as powerful as it was feared

And now as I stand before her

I set my eyes upon a waking dream


There, a thousand spires

Gleaming like ice in the sun

I see them rising o'er these open plains

And I know I shall remember forever

how I saw a thousand towers white


Mirrorlike gates stretch before me

blazing serene in the dawn

Split open for vast lines of many men

I gaze beyond in bewilderment


Shattered hearts and dreams

crushed by grievous tyranny

Crumbling homes and screams

among corrupted industry


[Solo: Mörck]


A sinister reign

brother is turned against brother

irrational fear enslaved the dwarves and the elves


What lies beyond such opression?

shining towers cast a shade on me


There, a thousand spires

Glowing like fire in the sun

but I see no honour in these broken men

yet I know I will remember forever

how I saw a thousand towers white

Japanese LyricsEdit

「サウスランドの海岸線がどこまでも伸びていく。龍の牙のように荒削りの岩が並び、希望無き沼と海の無法者たちによって作られた海賊の入り江がいくつも存在する。しかし、島人が陸に辿り着き、その疲れきった目を向けた先に見えたものは決してそのような光景ではなかった。ウェストマールから南へわずか1日の場所にある名高い砂浜。そのやわらかな砂は彼は故郷や彼の叔父が若い頃に一度だけ見たというアイボリー海岸の砂浜にも似ている。陸に辿り着き完全に疲れきった島人は失われた仲間に対する未だ癒えない悲しみの中、自分の感情を抑えることができなかった。彼は知っていた、力強き光景と眩しく輝く光が北に存在していることを:西の宝石、男たちの誇り―王家の町、ウェストマール。」


頭を上げ、銀色の砂浜を見つめる

足についた砂、背中を照らす太陽

何日もの間、海岸が俺を導いた

かすんだ雫の中で光ってりるのが見える


何千もの光線が

太陽の中で炎のように光っている

開かれたこの平野の上に姿を現す

俺はいつまでもわすれないだろう

千の塔が真っ白に見えたこの光景を


若い頃に教えられた

力と栄光に満ちた町のことを

帝国の冠は恐れられるほど力強かった

そして今、その町の前に立ち

俺は夢を思い出す


何千もの光線が

太陽の中で炎のように光っている

開かれたこの平野の上に姿を現す

俺はいつまでもわすれないだろう

千の塔が真っ白に見えたこの光景を


鏡のような門が目の前にそびえ立つ

夜明けの中で静かに燃えている

何列も並ぶ男たちに前で開かれ

俺は戸惑いの中で遠くを見つめる


砕かれた心と夢

痛ましい暴政に潰され

家が崩れ落ち、叫びが聞こえる

腐敗した産業の中で


ソロ:モルク


邪悪な支配

兄弟は兄弟と戦わせれ

不合理な恐怖によって妖精や少人たちは奴隷にされる


制圧の先には何があるのだろうか?

輝く塔が俺の上に陰を落とす


何千もの光線が

太陽の中で炎のように光っている

壊れた男たちの中に尊敬など見えない

俺はいつまでも忘れないだろう

千の塔が真っ白に見えたこの光景を
