Paroles pour l'album Helvetios de Eluveitie

1: Prologue


When I reminisce about all those years, I see many things. Life and death
Strung together like the mountains and valleys in which we lived. There was
Wealth and opulence, but also tribulation and loss. There was laughter and
Song, and there was also tears.

But even more than tears, blood was shed. And so many were left to their
Unadorned graves, unburied. But to us, death was but another journey. And
Close by the darkness through which we strode, there was also light. The
Light of life and immortality.

And after all, when I reminisce about those years, I mostly remember our
Songs. We sang... as if to drown out the sound of clashing swords, as if
The battle cries fell silent... because war had lost it's meaning.

2: Helvetios

Bodiacos
Sunartiu
Segos brigos
Anauos

(Victorious
by the good-force
vigorous, mighty
spirited)

From antumnos the life-giving winds
Fanned the flames into a blaze
The awen of the mighty

By the force of sucellus sledge
By every impact of ogmios club
With bricta's invincible epiphany

A tribe arose
A tribe broke forth

'Cause we're born free
'Cause we're born wild
'Cause we are indomitable and bold
'Cause we are fire (brave)
'Cause we are wave (strong)
'Cause we are rock (tribe)
We are one - we are helvetios

The ears tethered to the divine tongue
Following the ancient wise
As laughter fills antumnos

Drinking from the cup of life
The well that's never running dry
We wandered into the light of day

Again taranis enthean wheel revolved
From antumnos life was upheaved

By the force of succellus sledge
By every impact of ogmios' club
With bricta's invincible epiphany

3: Luxtos

At the rise of a new dawn
Rose the children of the sun
To inhabit a kingdom
Augustly crowned in rock mass vast

All lakes are sanctuaries
Like covert nemetons
All forests are hallowed
Blest groves of an invictus tribe

Nertom woloutom que (We are strong and we are rich)
Etsi snis karamos-e (And we gladly are)

Nertom woloutom que etsi snis (We are strong and we are rich)
Emmos snis riyi emmos snis (We are free, that's what we are)
Widomor-e Karamos-e (We know it and we love to know it)
Emmos snis riyi emmos snis andometi (We are free and we are untamed)
Nertom woloutom que etsi snis (We are strong and we are rich)
Emmos snis riyi emmos snis (We are free, that's what we are)

A kingly tribe sublime
Arose in its golden time
In a prosperous era
The age primordial reign

A horde of untameables
Invincible armada
A dashing bold host
Of venturous fearnaughts

4: Home

Cell

In these vigilant times I daydream-an innocuous crime
My motionless stance-in my mind, I wander the land
A bleak, dismal trance

Constrained, unsafe, left in shame
And now I can see my town is painted red
Here forever I'll be where once my tears were she'd

On that day, in our place I recall the smell of the rain
And I'd protect you from them if you want me to take.
Take you there again

Good night my love, let me watch you sleep from here or above
Words like these won't leave this place
Be haunted by our trace, the trace of our... home

The home they want call their own
But for the air that I breathe, the dreams are divine
The memories I'll bring to a place for from home
I'm trapped without guards, within a scare I can't Grasp
But we're still free

The home they want to call province of rome
Scared to move, scared to wake, scared just to be who we were
What matters is just you and me and the path that leads us...

Encircled by fiends, the pressure deepens dazed by illusions,
My reason weakens but I won't let you fall into deep forlornness
I won't let you ponder the why in distress
A mechanical smile as I lift my face towards the sun
And return to denial

I weep as I kiss the ground, the trees that I'll soon miss
The songs we ring out, the memories will resound

5: Santonian Shores

We packed the wagons a'thing arranged,
There is no turning back
The time has come all to soon
A stab allthrouch my heart

The afterglow
Glimmereo on the roof of our homestead
We bode the nightfall at hand
Believe set out into the dark

In this night the fires roared
As fields were set ablaze
It rained ash from the sky
In a flaring hiss at night

Fromward the land we knew
Off to far and distant shores
To wards a safe haven
Off to these santonian shores

At the set of the sun
As mist billowed over the land
We got under way
Wandering towards our hopes

I bode awhile and looked back
Gazed into the sea of flames
Laying waste what we called home
I won't see this place again

A cortege as far as the eye can see
A vast migrant parade.
The glow of a distant dream
The awakening came nigh
Under a starlit sky.
Dreams within our hearts
Step by step we marched
Away into the night.

6: Scorched earth

nũ noxs ponc ro-duaxse
noxs uedacã atro-brogi
ðerã loucint' in nemisi
niũla noxtos crouo-samali
roudi loucint' are tanisa belia

nũ tegisa ne seiou' bisionti
magisa ansra nũ loscenti
noxs nũ uer ni ateðði
baregon nouion duaxsati

dunon eðði aidulegos
trebã ansrã nũ eðði onnas
druco-critus me gabiti
rac' senoxs auagomos
aue, aue, inte noxtin

7: meet the enemy

There at these ominous shores of river Saone
There at these shores the die has been cast
Valour and honour were stripped off their meaning
We will not know innocence again

At sombre nightfall the defenceless were bestially run down
Saone stained with helvetic blood
You will not shake hands with arrant beliers
You'd rather die than turn into minions

Freedom was our highest good
We ventured our lives
Meet the liar
This dead black night
Our destiny revealed
Meet the enemy
It will... never be the same

There at these portentous shores of river Saone
There at these shores the die has been cast
We saw the true face of the Roman ravener
The gorgoneion on the cuirass appeared

It was like playing ludus latrunculorum
The pieces were made of flesh and of blood
Valour and honour bereft of their meaning
The blood on your hands will forever stay

Freedom was our highest good
We ventured our lives
Meet the liar
This dead black night
Our destiny revealed
Meet the enemy
It will... never be the same

It's not us to go under the yoke
Of that fact the Roman people are witness
We will not bow (meet the liar)
Meet the enemy
Meet the liar
Meet the enemy

8: Neverland

(Behold, behold, behold, behold)
Behold this proud crestfallen parade
Dead bodies towered up like this dividing rampart
The hopes of yesterday forgotten and interred
Burnt to the ground

Lacerate
My Neverland belauded
My Otherworld elapsed
My silver lining

Another false dawn collapsed
A glimpse of our safe home (home)
Perished in Bibracte
Another hope dearly payed
When we all were betrayed (betrayed)
The end to our exodus

Behold this egregious mockery
We refused to bow down
Our own goddamn blood was the price we had to pay
Santones land we never got to see

Lacerate
My Neverland bore down

Another false dawn collapsed
A glimpse of our safe home (home)
Perished in Bibracte
Another hope dearly payed
When we all were betrayed (betrayed)
The end to our exodus

Lacerate
My Neverland belauded
My Otherworld elapsed
My hopes were dead

Another false dawn collapsed
A glimpse of our safe home (home)
Perished in Bibracte
Another hope dearly payed
When we all were betrayed (betrayed)
The end to our exodus

When the fiends come marching in
When the fiends come marching in

9: A Rose For Epona

Do you feel the thorns?
Do you see the tears?
Do you see the blood shed in this fell war?
Have you forsaken us?
Have you forgotten our faithful men calling your name?

While I stand before you
While we perish
While I lay down a crimson rose
While holding hands
Are forced apart
While hopes bog like condemned men

Were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand's turning old and weak
I'm giving myself up to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere

In your nemeton
These grey stone walls
Are cold and silent
As the fallen
Mother gone deaf
Mistress of shattered hopes
And forever broken dreams

Were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand's turning old and weak
I'm giving myself up to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere

Epo, epo why hast thou forsaken me?
Together we go unsung
Into thy hand I commend my spirit
Together we go down with our people

Were you there? were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand's turning old and weak
I'm giving myself up to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere
Falling on me...

10: Havoc

I wonder what it's like
To attack at night
And now down the defenseless
Invasions and raids just called
Fucking, punitive expeditions

Like a wildfire
Devastation spreads
Across all Gallia
From helvetia to eburonia
The ravener's insatiate

HAVOC
THINK OF YESTERDAY
RUIN
A MASS ILLUSION! HOW COULD IT COME THIS FAR?

Narbonensis was not enough
The empire needed more
From aremorica to carnutia
Plagued and war-ridden land
War's inflicted on free Gallia
An organised downfall
A black cloud of imperial
Rapacity unleashed

Imperial needs are met
At bloody cost of free tribes
Invasion, raid and war atrocity
In the name of S.P.Q.R.

11: Uprising

Our estates are under fire
Our villagers fall prey to pillage
How can we stay on the sideline
How long will we take this lying down?
Refuse to quell the anger
Time has come to take up arms again
The last call to rise up

Bestir
This is the flash of our last hope
Will you ally with us?
Wake up - open your eyes
Reach out
And seize this golden venture
We've lost ourselves in strife
While the raptor unopposedly
claws at Gallia's free lands
We have to call a halt this
Unite the tribes and rise
Take a look around yourself
And see this time is ours
The last call to rise up

Our lands are under fire
Our villagers fall prey to pillage
How can we stay on the sideline
How long will we take this lying down?
It is time to join forces
Let the eagles beak burst on our shields
Unite! This is Gallia uprising!

12: Hope

Instrumental

13: The Siege

Scorched earth we left
A barren land of ash
Our fatherland laid waste
Be the void our fucking monument

At a leaden dawn
At this ominous morn

Pila loomed on the horizon
Talons of the wolverine
Exanimate legions formed
At the very gates of Avaricum
Believed invulnerable
This calling wall
But straight out of nowhere
Before our eyes this godsdawn bane arose

Thus Avaricum burns
Under a dead sky
Avaricum drowns
In blood and demise

Siege towers emerged
Protruding from the ground
Standing out against the threatening sky
As if to mock all valiantness
Face to face with an eye-leveled enemy
Serried roman ranks
Embattled upon our hold

Cut off and trapped inside
As the carnage was at hand
As the creak of the winches extolled our doom
The slaughter befell Avaricum
Dead suffused the oppidum
Left to pillage, sack and rape
Avaricum the brave became Avaricum the grave

14: Alesia

The grass was as green as it always was that sinister day
the blackbird sang their songs as they always did that black-letter day
the day we passed the great gate for the very last time
I did not look back, I knew we`d stay

I knew they I would not let us go leave the death strip
I saw the gleam in their eyes of fear and enslavement
suffering from the crushing weight

Beloved ground take me home

Alesia, alisanos
wake me when I`m gone
Ianotouta,eternity
proclaim our barren sacrifice

on that ground we cherished life
and embraced death
as the children`s cries trailed off
sob yielded deathly hush

the grass as green as it always was that sinister day
as we walked the alleys like thousand times before
I knew we`d stay

outside Alesia
we offered a living sacrifice

outside the doors of Alesia
where our tears run dry

15: Tullianum

And so it all ends,
With just a noose,
Fly raven, fly.

16: Uxellodunon

This is the final resistance
This was the final revolt

In desperate hope
With tear-dimmed eyes
With wrath-torn minds
We took up arms one more time

Uxellodunon
Oh the last stand
The freedom manifesto

We will never forget
The things we've seen
The deaths we died
The tears we cried
We will never regret
We defied
We will raise our arm stubs in pride
We will never perish

Our cut off hands
Proclaimed grandeur
Land can be taken but
Dignity's impregnable

Uxellodunon
Fortress of free men
Shining beacon of indomitably

Bearing witness of freedom
Bearing witness of our names,
Cause we will never...

Out from the ashes
Out from the graves
The offspring of antumnos
Will arise to life again

Uxellodunon
Oh the last stand the freedom manifesto

17:Epilogue

When I reminisce about all those years of tribulation, I mostly remember
Our songs. We died, and our blood seeped away on the battlefields; but our
Songs survived, together with those of us that returned. And as they too
Will die one day, our songs will live on, and will be sung by our children,
And by our children's children. This is how we will be remembered. This is
Who we were.

Helvetios.

18: A rose For Epona (acoustic version)

Do you feel the thorns?
Do you see the tears?
Do you see the blood shed in this fell war?
Have you forsaken us?
Have you forgotten our faithful men calling your name?

While I stand before you
While we perish
While I lay down a crimson rose
While holding hands
Are forced apart
While hopes bog like condemned men

Were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand's turning old and weak
I'm giving myself up to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere

In your nemeton
These grey stone walls
Are cold and silent
As the fallen
Mother gone deaf
Mistress of shattered hopes
And forever broken dreams

Were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand's turning old and weak
I'm giving myself up to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere

Epo, epo why hast thou forsaken me?
Together we go unsung
Into thy hand I commend my spirit
Together we go down with our people

Were you there? were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand's turning old and weak
I'm giving myself up to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere
Falling on me...
