In a time long ago, when the sword was your soul
and the sun turned to gold and the day turned to night,
A man stands alone, knowing he has the right
And the power of life over all he surveys
With his sword in his hand, he rules all the land
Even fools understand, he lives just to fight
A man rich in pride, no-one dares to defy
Don't stare in his eyes, 'cuz he is the samurai

He bows his dead and cries
"By this sword, I will live to die!"
His eyes are ablaze as he screams out his name
He lifts his sword to the rising sun
Sun hits the steel as he's shielding his eyes
He rules with the blade, it will drive him insane
Death in life is his only way
Blood stains the land as they heed his commands
He'll fight to the death, when he makes his last stand
The time will come when they claim his crown
He'll be cut down 'cuz he's only a man
But until that day, he will rule all this land

By this sword, you must live or die

You first killed so long ago
The way the warrior learns to fight
Can't you feel your life's blood draining away?
Has he the power to foresee
Know the future, what's gone before
Can't you see he's getting stronger, samurai?
