Track Name: Wunderbar Troll
“Gather around my friends, as we speak in Taverns of old, exchanging hands of gold.. harken! To this Tale!"

Deep in the forests of Germany, laying hidden and unseen.
Where not many travelled and few have ever been
There is a troll there that the locals curse and fear
But his greatest crime is that of drinking all their beer
There is no death here and there is no toll
Welcome to the lair of the Wunderbar Troll

Sleeping all night and drinking all day
Laying and resting in beds made of hay
Come join me friend in singing this song
And we’ll dance 'round fires all winter long
Wunderbar troll!
Wunderbar troll!

One night the locals plotted against the troll they wrongly hate
They decided that this be the night they surely seal his fate
Gathering knives and farming tools they marched into the night
Now unto the troll of wonder they wreak their hellish might
There is soon to be death here he will pay the toll
None of them shall mourn you, oh Wunderbar Troll

Sleeping all night and drinking all day
Laying and resting in beds made of hay
Come join me friend in singing this song
And we'll dance 'round fires all winter long
Wunderbar troll!
Wunderbar troll!

And as they entered into his home
Flaying flesh and breaking bone
They struck him, until he couldn't scream
And kicking his corpse and smashing his skull
Now begins a trollish cull
The start from man shall now soon be their end

Sleep now my friend as your soul rests in hell
Troll angels singing your final farewell
Now we will join you in singing this song
And we will remember you all winter long
Wunderbar troll!
Wunderbar troll!

We will remember you

Wunderbar troll!
Track Name: Goblins!!!!!
Oh, the goblins strike tonight!

Biting, fighting, crushing, smiting
Fearless goblins slaying Vikings
Another victory for them now to sing

Crashing, killing, snapping, crunching
The way they gorge truly disgusting
Marching now to kill the coward king

Goblins fill the halls with screams
Against you all the hordes will teem
They’ll find you and gleely tear you at the seams

Try run and hide
In fear you confide
You they shall find
And then they will bind
You're dead
They’ll take your head

Your skin they will peel
On your knees you shall kneel
Running out of time
Bodies oozing with slime
The feast
Ravenous like beasts

Goblins fill the grassland plains
To soon fill you with utmost pain
You’re not prepared, this is the end
And then together we sing again

Oh, the goblins strike tonight!

Hating, cursing, swearing, cussing
Goblins surely up to nothing
More heads home they surely wish to bring

Stabbing, laughing, bleeding, gutting
Violence they are surely loving
Sliced right through your thin life’s strings

Goblins fill the halls with screams
Against you all the hordes will teem
They’ll find you and gleely tear you at the seams

Final call
No time to stall
They have arrived
You have survived
But not for long
As the goblins strong
Take you now

Goblins fill the grassland plains
To soon fill you with utmost pain
You’re not prepared, this is the end
And together, oh, we sing again

Oh, the goblins strike tonight

OH, THE GOBLINS STRIKE TONIGHT!
Track Name: Sorrows Song
Howling to the wind
Like a wolf cries to the moon
I now stare forth at thee
In the hopes you'll one day see

The break of dawn marks my end
A message of sorrow is what I send
I sing my sorrows song
For the the ages long

So tie my neck and bend me down
My final words cannot be drowned
We were brothers in times of need
but golden lands have been turned to greed

So end my sorrow, oh, so fast
Until my pain is gone and passed
I hear this sorrows song
Oh, for the ages long

Hear my sorrows song
For all the ages long
Hear this sorrows song
For all the ages long

These words aren't carried to my grave
For your souls I'll try to save
For not before too long
You'll sing your sorrows song
Track Name: A World of Tales
A story to be told
Is what lies within
Of heroes proud and bold
To far away dwelling djinn

This world is full of them
Tales to be heard
But from ideas they stem
To soon be shared

Rise up
This is your tale
Charge now
Or else you will fail

Tall now
we watch you once more
and tell now
of deeds we foresaw

I beckon to you child
Take my guiding hand
For I will show you men
Of these forsaken lands

From knights of honour
To minstrel imps of hell
Or goblin soldier slaughter
These stories we do tell

A world of tales in which we live
It's time now to make your own

Sir Magnus: “Stranger, you tell me of stories within.
You call yourself two of the last Kazkariv.”

Kazkariv: “That is our title we were born to bear.
And yes, it is tales with you we intend to share”

Sir Magnus: “I Sir Magnus have a story of my own.
I hold the sword from which the purest light has grown.”

Kazkariv: “You will soon know that your stories have no end.
Now go for it's your people that you must defend.”

This World of tales we reside
With whom it is we side
In this world of tales we must decide
Shall we hold the light

A world of tales in which we live
Fables of which you have been shown

So hear me knight so bold
Before your tale is told
We will watch forever more
Show us what you have in store

From Knights of honour
To minstrel imps of hell
Or goblin soldier slaughter
These stories we do tell

A world of tales in which we live
It's time now to make your own

A world of tales in which we live
Fables of which you have been shown
Track Name: A Hero's Tale
We came from the mountains, we came from the plains
We came to the land where the demons remain
We came with our sword and our spears
We came to end all of your fears

They came from the ground made from ashes and dirt
They came to spread all their lies and their hurt
They came for all of these years
The demons, they came to bring tears

Oh, we thought we’d seen it all
How far from grace we’d surely fall
The demons they came
To drive us insane
But back our old lives we will claim

We fastened our helms and raised up our shields
And march on forth to now blackened fields
We face off the demons once more
But this time it's not like before

Firing arrows of light into enemy's ranks
The horsemen charge west in order to flank
The demons diminish to few
And then all the demons we slew

Of our story the bards will tell
We’ll send those demons back to hell
The demons they came
To drive us insane
But back our old lives we did claim

For our long lost
Brothers this day
We have slayeth
Demons this way
And we'll fight on
For our world that we live on

Of our story the bards will tell
We’ll send those demons back to hell
The demons they came
To drive us insane
But back our old lives we did claim
