Baba Yaga is Coming!
(music: Ł. Muschiol; lyrics: M. Wieczorek)

Now it’s time to run
Time to slam the door,
Extinguish all lights
And plug every hole

Her magic emerges from among the trees
Can you feel it? Be careful! It brings disease!

Bloody witch – She lives there in the mighty forest
Every child, terrified, knows this darkest story

Come, my child, sit by the fire, I’ll tell you a joke
I will give you chocolate and even let you smoke…

Oh no, don’t touch me!
Now give me your life!
Oh no, please leave me!
Look into my eyes!

Why are you afraid of me? I will sing you song
Then you go to sleep so sweet – it will not be long…

Oh no, where am I?
Stop fucking squirming!
Oh no, I’m terrify
My knife feels like killing!

Bloody witch – She lives there in the mighty forest

Why are you afraid of me? I will sing you song
Then you go to sleep so sweet – it will not be long…

Oh no, don’t touch me!
Stop fucking squirming!
Oh no, please leave me!
My knife feels like killing!

Watra
(music: Ł. Muschiol; lyrics: M. Wieczorek)

Watra! Watra! Watra! Watra!

Watra! Sacred flame
Watra! Ancient place
Watra! Burn forever inside me

Watra! Sacred flame
Watra! Ancient place
Watra! Burn forever inside me

Watra! You never know, when you’ll need eternal fire
It’s unbelievable! I believe only in flames

Watra! Sacred flame
Watra! Ancient place
Watra! Burn forever inside me

Watra! Sacred flame
Watra! Ancient place
Watra! Burn forever inside me

Everything will burn in fire, only ashes here remain
When you hear the horns and cheers
You’ll understand – this portends pain
Take my hand to expend wings and fly away
Leave it all, shame and fall, and your waiting grave

Watra! You never know, when you’ll need eternal fire
It’s unbelievable! I believe only in flames

Not for War
(music: Ł. Muschiol; lyrics: M. Wieczorek)

They are coming great and mighty
I must flee, I have to hide
They want to take me to death and fires
All my faith I have to fling aside

I can be paid
For forests of this land
And even more…
But not for war!

Recruiting lists are already sent
But I fuck it now!
I want to live! I don’t want to die
For someone’s whims, for social class

I can be paid
For forests of this land
And even more…
But not for war!

Bloodthirsty troops are ready
But it is not for me
Not for me
It’s never been
For me

You can chop me in pieces
You can burn me in fire
I can give my life for forest
I can give my life for lore
Not for war
Never more

You can chop me in pieces
You can burn me in fire
I can give my life for forest
I can give my life for lore
Not for war
Never more
Not for war
Never more
„No” for war

Remember My Name (Warrior’s Farewell Song)
(music: Ł. Muschiol, M. Wieczorek; lyrics: M. Wieczorek)

The old man had predicted the death of mine
I mocked him over a pint of beer
Now ravens fly over the battlefield
Black eyes looking at me

Treacherous arrow cut the thread
Sword finished the rest
The grass is red with my blood
Christian tore my chest

Goodbye my brothers, goodbye companions
I’m leaving the bosom of Perun
Remember my name, remember my courage
I go along with the moon

Hordes of enemies came from the west
They brought us to their god
All sacred fires were extinguished
We know that they are mad

Enough is enough, we reached for swords
We took prayers to Swantewit
And went to the battle, a hundred to thousands
But nothing was agreed

Goodbye my brothers, goodbye companions
I’m leaving the bosom of Perun
Remember my name, remember my courage
I go along with the moon

There remaind only mound and song
Courage lost in the night
Sing bard about the Slavs
They’re still alive and fight!
Sing bard about the Slavs
They’re still alive and fight!

Goodbye my brothers, goodbye companions
I’m leaving the bosom of Perun
Remember my name, remember my courage
I go along with the moon

Burn in Cold Hell
(music: Ł. Muschiol; lyrics: M. Wieczorek)

Welcome to the end
Here on fucking Earth
For two thousand years
Here reigned disrespect

In ancient history
There was honor and pride
Now gods sent you
Message on how you’ll die

Burn for slander, burn for weakness,
For your damned lies
Burn forever in cold hell, burn alive!

There’s no redemption here
No fucking second chance
Just pain remained here
And no forgiveness

Where is your plastic world?
And look – where are you now?
You lose, little man
Your head falls down

Burn for slander, burn for weakness,
For your damned lies
Burn forever in cold hell, burn alive!

You won’t get a second chance -
Only death, only pain

You won’t get a second chance -
Only pain, only death

Burn for slander, burn for weakness,
For your damned lies
Burn forever in cold hell, burn alive!

Radogost
(music: Ł. Muschiol; lyrics: M. Wieczorek)

It’s time you took the challange
Because that’s what you were born
Sacred knife is waiting for you
Narrow path cowerded with thorns

Swear allegiance once again
Lords of the moon and the sun
You have to stand in the darkness
Ritual has just begun

Here comes the old god – it’s Radogost
Eternal power – great Radogost
Now and forever will shine his axe
It’s your salvation, your only fate

No father, no mother – you’re son of trees
Your power is magic – feel her dark kiss
Redemption and freedom are in your head
You have to believe and go ahead

It’s time you took the challange
Because that’s what you were born
Sacred knife is waiting for you
Narrow path cowerded with thorns

Swear allegiance once again
Lords of the moon and the sun
You have to stand in the darkness
Ritual has just begun

Here comes the old god – it’s Radogost
Eternal power – great Radogost
Now and forever will shine his axe
It’s your salvation, your only fate

*   *   *

Rage, Hate and Faith
(music: Ł. Muschiol, J. Musioł; lyrics: M. Wieczorek)

Listen to this – the saga begins
The story of glory, salvation and fear
The old burial mounds know bloody truth
The memory of heroes begins to disappear

They knew only that way:
Rage, hate and faith
There were cursed forever
For rage, hate and faith

Listen to this – the saga begins
Of fire and death, power and pain
Everything is gone, burried in the dust
The one who survived stayed insane

They knew only that way:
Rage, hate and faith
There were cursed forever
For rage, hate and faith

Death, scream, anything is possible
Fires are burning everywhere
Death, scream, anything is possible
Fires are burning everywhere

Life, peace, this is no longer possible
Fires are burning everywhere
Life, peace, this is no longer possible
Fires are burning everywhere

Rage, hate and faith!
Rage, hate and faith!
Rage, hate and faith!
Rage, hate and faith!

*   *   *

Still Against the World (Mercenary’s Song)
(music: Ł. Muschiol; lyrics: M. Wieczorek)

Price for our heads isn’t terrible
Our blades won’t disappear
We walk in the shadows bringing death
We will teach you all about fear

Always strong, always great,
Still against the world
Always ready to fight,
Still against the world

Always strong, always great,
Still against the world
Always ready to drink,
Still against the world

Slowly (the) time will come when the purse will shine
Then we’ll go into the battle and no matter why
We will cut and chop, burn and rape, and rob
All the reasons are sufficient, even if they’re lies

Still against the world

Every day is the same – beer and fight
Everywhere we bring about fear
One bad look and a sword will stab you
We don’t heed any tears

Always strong, always great,
Still against the world
Always ready to fight,
Still against the world
Always strong, always great,
Still against the world
Always ready to drink,
Still against the world

From the Dark
(music: Ł. Muschiol; lyrics: M. Wieczorek)

In the freezing night, from the darkness and ashes
I’m comin’ to you, for your greatest treasure
You have no chance, you burn in my fire
In my name – die, my squire!

You believe me immensely – Yes, I spit on it!
Now you kneel before me and wait for the hit!

I will take your soul forever
You have never been too clever…
Will not help you any tears
Now I come out from the dark

I will take your soul forever
You have never been too clever…
Will not help you any tears
Now I come out from the dark

I will take your soul forever
You have never been too clever…
Will not help you any tears
Now I come out from the dark

Deadly Race Trilogy
(music: Ł. Muschiol, J. Musioł; lyrics: M. Wieczorek)

PART I: JOURNEY TO DEATH

I saw this (a) long time in fantasies:
Old chest with gold and white pearls
Whitout it, I’ll never be truly free
I’m ready for Deadly Race

Hellish creatures lurking there
And many traps to avoid
And in the dungeon old witch lives -
Immortal devils whore

„Many were the daredevils who headed off with the mission to slay the witch and destroy the evil. None of them saved their lives. Mighty infernal magic covered valleys with poisonous mist making the way to the old gloomy castle treacherous and invisible. But even that didn’t intimidate the knights. Mislead by the valuable prize, they headed towards certain death.”

What kind of darkness?
Gods help me!
In distance I hear screams
I am so tired
Gods help me!
What kind of fire is there?

PART II: IN THE CLAWS OF DESTINY

Welcome, dear warrior
You are my victim!

No one will help you, no one!
Give up your hope forever!
Just let me show you what fear is
Now I’ll teach you pain!

Serve me for ever!
Give me your strength!

PART III: SCREAM OF TRAGEDY

Is this the end of my life?
Is this the end of my way?
Here’s where the desire of gold leads to
What else can I say?

Is this the end of my life?
Is this the end of my way?
Here’s where the desire of gold leads to
What else can I say?

End of my life
Now I will die

Radogost (polish version)
(music: Ł. Muschiol; lyrics: M. Wieczorek)

Już czas byś podjął wyzwanie
Po toś narodził się tu
Prastary sztylet dziś czeka
Ciernistą ścieżką masz pójść

Wypowiedz znów swe przysięgi
Dla władców słońca i gwiazd
Niech cię ogarnie mrok nocy
Rytuał zacząć już czas

Stary bóg kroczy – to Radogost!
Moc z bram wieczności – cny Radogost!
Teraz i zawsze topora śmiech
To twe zbawienie, jedyny sens

Bez matki, bez ojca – tyś synem drzew
Szept magii twą siłą – już czujesz zew
Otchłanie wolności są w głowie twej
Mścij się za przelaną słowiańską krew!

Już czas byś podjął wyzwanie
Po toś narodził się tu
Prastary sztylet dziś czeka
Ciernistą ścieżką masz pójść

Wypowiedz znów swe przysięgi
Dla władców słońca i gwiazd
Niech cię ogarnie mrok nocy
Rytuał zacząć już czas

Stary bóg kroczy – to Radogost!
Moc z bram wieczności – cny Radogost!
Teraz i zawsze topora śmiech
To twe zbawienie, jedyny sens
