lyrics

Sentence of the Blade (G.Pinna/C.Yerbic)

You find yourself awake
In a sea of blood
The sun already faded
In a red sunset

Our leader gave the gift of Life
To which a cold blade will be brought

Sentence of the Blade
Cuts through the heart
Of the Samurai without honor
Sentence of the Blade
Will look in the face
Of the one whose death has been decided.

The people could not help but sense
It was the end of an era
Who was the one who made the choice
To betray our flag

Our leader gave the gift of Life
But in the name of Hachiman
Someone killed him

Sentence of the Blade
Cuts through the heart
Of the Samurai without honor
Sentence of the Blade
Will look in the face
Of the one whose death has been decided

The night before
Obscured by darkness
His warrior arrived
And gave to all Liberty
By taking his sword
And with complete lucidity
He pierced the chest of his Majesty

Sentence of the Blade
Will fill the heart
Of the Samurai of valor
Sentence of the Blade
Will look in the face
Of the one who courageously took action
