Sabaton – Shiroyama lyrics

Sabaton – Shiroyama lyrics

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 end 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

[Chorus]
Imperial force defied, facing 500 samurai
Surrounded and outnumbered
60 to 1, 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
Saigo ignore contender
The dawn of destiny is here

[Chorus]
Imperial force defied, facing 500 samurai
Surrounded and outnumbered
60 to 1, the sword face the gun
Bushido dignified
It’s the last stand of the samurai
Surrounded and outnumbered

Til the dawn they hold on
Only 40 are left at the end
None alive, none survive
Shiroyama

[Chorus]
Imperial force defied, facing 500 samurai
Surrounded and outnumbered
60 to 1, the sword face the gun
Bushido dignified
It’s the last stand of the samurai
Surrounded and outnumbered
60 to 1, facing the gun
60 to 1, culture undone
