Dark is the light,
The man you fight,
With all your prayers, incantations,
Running away, a trivial day,
Of judgment and deliverance,
To whom was sold, this bounty soul,
A gentile or a priest?
Who victored over, the Seljuks,
When the holy land was taken

We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens

Was it the riches, of the land,
Powers of bright darkness,
That lead the noble, to the East,
To fight the lord

We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
With your AK47s, M16s
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
With your AK47s, M16s
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens

Soldiers marching on,
Believing there's no God,
Disguising narrow mind,
Deceiving in the night,
We must call upon our bright darkness,
We must swim through the river of silence,
We must break through the wall of violence,
Nothing else will get us down.
We must call to our bright darkness,
We must swim through the river of silence,
We must break through the wall of violence,
Nothing else will get us down

We must call upon our bright darkness,
Beliefs, they're the bullets of the wicked,
One was written on the sword,
For you must enter a room to destroy it, destroy it, destroy it.
No International security,
No Call of the righteous man,
Needs a reason to kill a man,
History teaches us so,
The reason he must attain,
Must be approved by his God,
His child, partisan brother of war,

Of war, we don't speak anymore,
Of war, we don't speak anymore,
Of war, we don't speak anymore,
Of war, we don't speak anymore,

We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
With your AK47s, M16s
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
With your AK47s, M16s
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
