Sabaton – Blood of Bannockburn

Blood of Bannockburn

Now that our time has come to fight
Scotland must unite
We'll make a stand on Stirling ground
To put a challenge to the crown
We are one, we have come
We're here to break and end the occupation
We have our nation's faith in hand
It's time we make our final stand

Rally all the clans
Englishmen advance
Blood of Bannockburn
Point of no return

Join the Scottish revolution
Freedom must be won by blood
Now we call for revolution
Play the pipes and cry out loud

We need a king to rule our land
Bruce is in command
It is the crown that in his sight
And it's the reason we will fight

To attack, send them back
And then we'll see to Bruce's coronation
We are the Scots with pikes in hand
And we will die to claim our land

Rally all the clans
Halted English plans
Charge of Bannockburn
Freedom we shall earn

Join the Scottish revolution
Freedom must be won by blood
Now we call for revolution
Play the pipes and cry out loud

And as the hammer lost it's crown
And a weak heir to succeed it
Play the tunes of victory
Play them higher and higher tonight

Wallace showed the way
Led us to this day
Here at Bannockburn
Freedom we shall earn

Join the Scottish revolution
Freedom must be won by blood
Now we call for revolution
Play the pipes and cry out loud

Join the Scottish revolution
Freedom must be won by blood
Now we call for revolution
Play the pipes and cry out loud
"Blood of Bannockburn" is the third song of Sabaton's "The Last Stand" album. The composition attracts attention with its folklore style. From the very beginning, music comes in bagpipes, which acts as a symbol of Scotland. The lyrics of the song tell about the revolution and unification, which are connected with the Battle of Bannockburn. Despite the fact that the theme is bloody enough, the music sounds in majestic tones and is very rhythmic.
