Thousands of years
Before the dawn of history
Ancient races tears
Are flowing like a river to the sea
Where sacred river ran
White deer had roamed the land
Brilliant twilight in our dreams

Primitive child
Your unforgotten tribe calls to you
Descendants we are one
The tangled maze is broken once again
A myth without a meaning
You shade the light from the seed
The earth and virgin soil watch it bleed
The earth and virgin soil
Red, white, black, in city masses,
Corporate buildings spread like rashes
Stacked upon each other forty high
Stab each other in the back
You money-hungry maniacs
Dig up earth and spit it in your eye

To intrude this sacred land
Where the mortals have been banned
Where your own forefathers lie in rest
To disturb this mountain side
Where in battle we did ride,
And our warriors where they lie
The earth digest

Hear our cry from down below
Let our restive spirits go
You've trapped us in your world of sin
Let the plague begin, Damnation
Your cities disappear
To earth's interior, don't you know
You've got to let your spirits go
You've got to let your spirits go
