lyrics

Act I: The declaration of war

I shall smite
The presence of Allah from this land
For their faith,
Can’t save them from my wrath
I am Vlad!
The son of the order of Dracul
Savior of
The sovereignty of Romanian soils

(Chorus)
Rise! We arise…
(To punish the wicked…)

From the Carpathian Mountains,
Attacking the Ottoman forces
Along all the Danube

Kill! To impale the boyars on oiled stakes;
It is the way I avenge you!

Rise! We arise…
(To punish the wicked…)

From the Carpathian Mountains,
Attacking the Ottoman forces
Along all the Danube

Kill! To impale the boyars on oiled stakes;
It is the way I avenge you all!

Burning plains
The Muslims encroach upon our lands
Outnumbered we stand
Against Sultan Mehmed
At Tîrgovişte
I implore
The pope and the Christians of the west
To unite
In defense of the kingdoms that border your own lands!

(Repeat Chorus)

Act II: Martyr of the people

The Janissaries,
Ottoman slaves of war
In death, their souls redeemed
Indentured servants of Allah no more
Their final restless place
The Forest of the Impaled
The everlasting anguish
Of all the Ottoman lords who have failed…

Rejoice my friends
A symbol of victory
I dip my bread
In the blood of my victims
Impale the weak
The gypsies and vagabonds
May such men be eradicated from my lands

A symbol of power
A birthright of darkness
[To] devour the enemy
I’ve become a demigod

I have killed peasants, men and women, old and young where the Danube flows into the sea... Thus, you must know that I have broken the peace…

I cannot die.
I won’t forsake you.
I cannot die:
Lord of Wallachia

I cannot die
I won’t forsake you.
I cannot die:
Lord of Wallachia!

Act III: The timeless crusade

Betrayed and stripped of my people
I hold on to my valor
This bold crusade I harbor
My brethren don’t give up this war
Væ Victis!

And with last breath I call to you.
Imbue your souls with power.
My soul will live forever
I’ll watch you from beyond my grave

No More…Muslim…Tyrants…Rule Us…

Free from their reign!
