O, so it is written son When all waters and land you see All around came to birth Man and beast was one And the gods of the sky Walked the face of the earth Few free and innocent Man strolled paths next to those Of beasts seeing no signs But stars in the sky Knowing of day and night Of rain and winds, hunger and fright But not of death nor of life While all was at ease with all Living creatures and beast and the gods of the sky enjoyed the lavish riches of this world, giants rose out of their caves and took to the skies challenging the gods for the power of the universe. Only when the great halls of Valhalla stood aflame lighting up the worlds all around did the gods wake up from their drunken sleep, to speed through the heavens and clash with the giants in the greatest battle ever seen. Heads arms and legs of both giant and god fell down upon the earth and... The weapons... The swords of shining metal... And those who found them and took these shining blades in hand were only men, now man was the master of this world. The story tells of stormy skies [sings: raging winds] Black clouds gathered up high And of lightning striking from a Burning bloodred sky The mountains crumbled to the seas Earth shook the worlds collide Ending the age of gods Giving birth to our time And man lived and learned The secret of steel Ore of earth - fire of sky Forged is blade of gods Blood and iron Blood and iron Blood and iron Blood and iron Blood and iron Blood and iron Blood and iron Blood and iron So the age to learn and to teach for man begins, the power to know the blood and iron discipline, and tell the story of how man was granted these shining blades of steel Knowing of the past she will know of the tomorrow and man shall reign, yes, even conquer other worlds and she will set sails on her starships sailing across the black space and become the new gods of the skies. (The skies... the skies... the skies... the skies... the skies... the skies... the skies...) Blood and iron.
