I've heard the drums of war
The thunder closing in
Toulouse has turned it's back
We've been forsaken by our kin
Sentenced to burn
Our innocence will be lost
I need to stop this deathly march
No matter the cost

My eyes were blinded
But now I see
My judgement has been clouded
Please forgive me
You may even punish me
Until the end of days
For now I see with clearer mind
The error of my ways

Get back, you weakling
Harbinger of sin
Our forces will destroy your town
And everything within
And nothing will remain but agony, death and pain

"Roma de cervel
Quar de la mal capel
Etz vos e Cistel
Qu'a Bezers fesets faire
Mout estranh mazel."

Slaughter
Life blown away in the blink of an eye
This nightmare is real, for soon we will feel
Our flesh touching fire and steel
Hold on  all hope is in vain
Hold on  your fate will remain
Hold on  'tis useless to flee
Hold on  your own destiny

Slaughter
A difference in faith as a pretext for war
Pray that we might just live through this night
At dawn we will stand up and fight
Repent  all we can do is pray
Repent  that we live through today
Repent  a sentence and crime
Repent  that echoes through time

People of Breziers
Listen and take heed:
Their forces march upon these walls
With vengeance and with speed
But I promise thee: before they come
Knocking on our door
Swords and shields will stand beside us
Aiding in our cause

Renaud what news do you bring?

Sacrifice is their final demand
We must give them what they want
Or they will kill us where we stand

Do we give up our brethren
To intolerance and hate
Or do we stand as one
And share a common fate?

Do we give up our brethren
Or do we stand as one?
No!

"We'd rather drown in a salt sea's brine
Than betray those who shared our lives."

Slaughter
A difference in faith as a pretext for war
Pray that we might just live through this night
At dawn we will stand up and fight
Repent  all we can do is pray
Repent  that we live through today
Repent  a sentence and crime
Repent  that echoes through time

Look at them, so self-assured
Mocking our men with scowls unheard
But soon I'll wipe that smile off their face
When I bask in the heat of this unholy place

Men, over there, they've opened the gates
Go forth with all your might
We'll run this city into the ground
Before the fall of night

Damn them all
Inglorious men
At the break of dawn
All streets were coloured red

Before the last scream faded away
These cowards, these wretched swine had their way:
Raping, murdering and burning all
Not for king or god, but fortune's call

The slaughter of innocence

"Breziers has fallen
Clerks, women, children. Christians too
I rode out, I couldn't see or hear a living creature
They killed seven thousand people
Seven thousand souls who sought sanctuary in Saint Madeleine
The steps of the altar
Were red with blood
The church echoed with the cries
Slaughtering the monks who tolled the bells
They used the silver cross as a chopping block to behead them."

Slaughter
Life blown away in the blink of an eye
This nightmare is real, for soon we will feel
Our flesh touching fire and steel
Hold on  all hope is in vain
Hold on  your fate will remain
Hold on  'tis useless to flee
Hold on  your own destiny

Slaughter
A difference in faith as a pretext for war
Pray that we might just live through this night
At dawn we will stand up and fight
Repent  all we can do is pray
Repent  that we live through today
Repent  a sentence and crime
Repent  that echoes through time
