Aerosmith – Battlefield lyrics

It cannot be seen

But there’s blood on the green

Only god knows I’m innocent

Take me, take me home

A dark seed reigns in me

Like the storm rules over the sea

I challenge thee, do not cross this bridge alone

Don’t dare me now

The threatening shadows will pass by

There’re getting closer now

Open your eyes

Wake up my dear young friend

And hate shall fade away

I will not move, yet

I’ll stand still, instead

There on the battlefield he stands

Down on the battlefield he’s lost

And on the battlefield it ends

War and anger shall reign

The clash of iron can be heard

By blindness you’re driven insane

I’m lost in anguish and grief

Sorrow won’t wane ’til you die

A shattered body deeply hurt

And darkness will cover the light

It’s gone forevermore

The field’s been left in sorrow

The father and the son

They’re gone

The sun shines bright

And anger rises

Lorn and lonely

Torn apart

Don’t you think

It’s time to stop now

We were charmed and fooled by the old serpent’s kiss

Let’s pray

That heaven is on our side

Through violence and horror

Shall honour arise

So let’s pray

And blessed shall be our leader

We follow the noble and bright

Don’t you hear me crying

Crying

Come take me away

I hallow thy name

There on the battlefield he stands

Down on the battlefield he’s lost

And on the battlefield it ends

War and anger shall reign

The clash of iron can be heard

By blindness you’re driven insane

I’m lost in anguish and grief

Sorrow won’t wane ’til you die

A shattered body deeply hurt

And darkness will cover the light

It’s gone forevermore

That’s what minstrel sing

Join in the horrible screams

Take part in murderous deeds

Renowned be the lion-hearted

Join in the minstrelsy

Wailing in endless grief

It eagerly longs for more

Broken bodies lay down on the ground

Blood sheds all over the place

The green will be stained forever

And hate reigns all over the field

They keep struggling on in anger

Fiercely intense

Outrageous, too blind to see

And in pain they keep on singing

We claim the land for the highlord

God bless the land and our highlord

War and anger shall reign

The clash of iron can be heard

By blindness you’re driven insane

I’m lost in anguish and grief

Sorrow won’t wane ’til you die

A shattered body deeply hurt

And darkness will cover the light

It’s gone forevermore
