Von Gott Entfernt (Bij Nacht En Ontij)

This song is by Ancient Rites and appears on the album Laguz (2015).

The lowlands saw the rise of a Guild unseen
A Phoenix rising contra church and regime

Dead Man's Hand!

Across the countries they spread their attack
The legend said that they rode on goat back

Dead Man's Hand!

"Ick zweer god af en den duyvel aan!"
Hosts in blood, a mockery of sacred rites!
"Ick zweer god af en den duyvel aan!"
Hosts in blood, a mockery of sacred rites!

Bockereyders! Ze Reden Bij Nacht!
Bockereyders! Den Ziel Gitzwart!
Bockereyders! Brandend Land!
Bockereyders! Aan Duyvel Verpand!

"Gezellen" or "Complicen" ("companions" or "accomplises")
Is how they called themselves
But they live on in legend as "Bokkereyders", in books on the shelves
Some were soldiers, butchers, Captain Kirchhoffs a military surgeon
Nol van Geleen an artist, regardless, the road to oblivion was certain
"Ick zweer god af en den duyvel aan!"
Anti-Christian symbolism, robbing of churches, sacking leaders of society

Bockereyders! In Der Nacht!
Bockereyders! Der Teufel lacht!
Bockereyders! Das land brennt!
Bockereyders! Von Gott Entfernt!

Yet their ranks grew more and more
For Gain? Revolt? Or both?
Von Gott Entfernt! Von Gott Entfernt!
"Ick zweer god af en den duyvel aan!"
Hosts in blood, a mockery of sacred rites!
"Ick zweer god af en den duyvel aan!"
Hosts in blood, a mockery of sacred rites!

Bockereyders! In Der Nacht!
Bockereyders! Der Teufel lacht!
Bockereyders! Das land brennt!
Bockereyders! Von Gott Entfernt!
