The silence breakes the ground
A shadow is riding the horizon
An arcane man arrives to town
Remoresless and condemned
Tasted the snake's poison
Broken every bone
Twelve thousand gunshot wounds
But there's nothing that whiskey can't cure

Ride Through the crossfire
Ride Through the flames, like a predator in the night
The eagles fly into eternal sunset
The heroes die, dying for their pride

Awoken to heavy galloping
I heard the blasting whiplash
Eyes are filled with lust to kill
Beware, he's crying out your name
Now the time has come
When the Iron tears the heart
And the trumpets will ring loudly
As the stars are painted with blood

Blazing fire under the moon
Burning taste of lead
We'll ride forever
Cause' the Iron is stronger than death

    Ensiferum is one of the most unappreciated metal bands EVER. Their skills are insane, and the music rocks. Their lyrics are pretty typical epic/viking metal stuff. Music is still awesome as hell.

    ye, slaying an enemy, plain and simple, kind of their theme throughout their songs. i fully agree with falcoh, this band is one of the most diverse and talented metal bands in existence. trying to play this stuff on guitar is a nice challenge.

    Its Pretty frikken obvious...I mean its apparent that this song is about Gunslinger(s) and/or outlaws and a whole western theme. Even the music suggests it like that parts at 1:32(heard the blasting whiplash...Whip sounds ensue)...2:15 Just the music is enough to tell you. Other examples: "Awoken to heavy galloping I heard the blasting whiplash" "Tasted the snake's poison broken every bone Felt a thousand gunshot wounds but there's nothing that whiskey can't cure" Its Pretty obvious...

    If you listen carefully, you can hear a gun shot at the end of the song

    I dunno I think "arcane man" refers to a wizard so that kinda goes against your western theory.
