It's the nature of time
That the old ways must give in
It's the nature of time
That the new ways comes in sin

When the new meets the old
It always ends the ancient ways
And as history told
The old ways go out in a blaze

Encircled by a vulture
The end of ancient culture
The dawn of destiny draws near

Imperial force defied
Facing five hundred samurai
Surrounded and outnumbered
Sixty to one, the sword face the gun

Bushido dignified
It's the last stand of the samurai
Surrounded and outnumbered

As a new age begins
The way of the warrior comes to an end
As a new age begins
The ways of old must apprehend

It's the nature of time
That the old ways must give in
It's the nature of time
That the new ways comes in sin

An offer of surrender
Saigō ignore contender
The dawn of destiny is here

Imperial force defied
Facing five hundred samurai
Surrounded and outnumbered
Sixty to one, the sword face the gun

Bushido dignified
It's the last stand of the samurai
Surrounded and outnumbered

Till the dawn they hold on
Only forty are left at the end
None alive, none survive
Shiroyama

Imperial force defied
Facing five hundred samurai
Surrounded and outnumbered
Sixty to one, the sword face the gun

Bushido dignified
It's the last stand of the samurai
Surrounded and outnumbered
Sixty to one, facing the gun
Sixty to one, culture undone
