The spirit holds fast to beleif.

The narrow path I walk is covered in green
My ghost is standing still unseen
Take not my heart from the glen
I will fight for it until the bitter end

The cannon blast is ringing the bell
Body is cold upon the merchant’s shell
Five or more they scale the hanging vine
Boulders rumble down making them mine

Blood upon the water lives to see
A curse of words float down condemning me
I stand my ground fames shoot high
What is death at least one hundred cry

Valley of the damned in smoke
Last of oak trees in the meadow choke
Smell of life a flickering flame
Nobody recalls which or who is to blame

The narrow path is now a memory
Carcasses left scared in a new cemetery
Strong and tall grows the oak tree
White cross is all that’s left of me
