"Bloodstained Ground" as written by Christian Glanzmann and Christian Glanzmann....
What did I close in here?
I can't remember ever shedding tears of spite
On this ground, cropping up the fatal front line

Like a soot-blackened palisade yet
Impelled, void and abulic
Legions delineate, an ominous skyline

As lifeless demons without soul
These insentient hosts abide
Engulfing war monger get away from here

Trod ye the path of vast deceit?
Every piece of evidence was a lie
The war, the threat's a hyping fake
To move figures on the board

Stain bibractes ground

What do you see in me?
Do you breathe-in dreams?
What spurred you to come here?
An oneiric picture of being

Like disaffected legions taken, lure
I wonder what lies, what threat or promise
Persuaded them to leave their home so far away
Did they really know?

As the carnyx roared aloud
I quaked not yet just asked myself
How their hearts took the bait
These sweetened words of bitter essence

Face to face with nameless foes
Scorching words, unspoken lorn
Unheard quests remain the ashes of the dead

Forsooth we'll bear the brunt
Upright in life or in death
Yet still the countless cries echo
In silenced caves of nothing

    General CommentAnother quote from the CD insert:

    "And another song on the fateful Gaulish war. At least according [to] ancient historians, it was in the year 58 BC, when the Roman armies under Gaius Julius Caesar initiated an immense war against Gallia (a war which was actually not ratified by the Roman senate; yet Caesar was in a political dilemma and needed that war both for financial as well as political reasons). It was outside the Gaulish city of Bibracte (near todays Autun/Saône-et-Loire in France) that the Roman legions besieged the gathered Celtic clans of Gallia. It is an open question how Caesar managed to convince so many legions to follow him and fight a war that would have been disapproved by the Roman senate. The Helvetians were one of the most wealthy Celtic clans and their treasures of gold were legendary. It is certain that Caesar pledged a high bounty of gold to his legions for conquering the Helvetians and their allied clans... remuneration that would never have been attainable for Roman legionaires otherwise. Caesar authored reports about Gallia and sent them to Rome on a regular basis. Reports in which he portrayed circumstances in an obviously distorted manner, characterising Gallia, especially the Helvetians, as a serious threat to the Roman empire; hoping to acquire Rome's blessings for his private war. The song deals with the thoughts of a young Gaulish warrior, standing on the fields of Bibracte together with hundreds of thoughsands of his fellow warriors, awaiting the Roman legions, seeing them appearing on the horizon. It must have felt strange as hell..."
