This song is British style Heavy metal in the tradition of Iron Maiden.
It was in 1274 and again in 1281
when the Mongols sailed to war upon the shores of Japan.
The Mongols had the greatest empire
in covering all the lands
from Russia to Indonesia and Hungary to Korea.
But this time, the Mongols met their match
in stronger swords, sacred winds, and lacquered armor.
CHORUS: Onward go the samurai.
Grind the Mongols at the coast.
Defend the sacred islands
For Japan we boast.
Smaller boats slashed larger fleets,
And walls of stone met the sea.
Nichiren Buddha said they’d strike.
His mystic words do still some chant:
I do believe
the Sun Goddess still shines upon her chosen land.
For in peace,
she shines like an Eastern Switzerland.
Repeat Chorus and song title until fade.
Footnote: Nam-myoho-renge-kyo = Devotion to the mystic law of cause-and-effect shown in all phenomena. “Nam” is a contraction for “Na-mu” when you chant faster.
