Lyrics

He threw down a glove you made the mistake of picking it up now you're gone
The choosing of guns or fighting with swords, the choice of weapons is done
He'll tear you apart as soon as you start, you know you don't have a chance

Fight for the honour
Fight for the splendour
Fight for the pleasure
OH...OH... Fight for the honour
Fight for the splendour

Fight for your life
Ready to start the duel begins, the best man wins in the end
A lunge and a feint, a parry too late, a cut in the chest and you're down
Seeing the stain then feeling the pain, feeling the sweat on your brow

Fight for the honour
Fight for the splendour
Fight for the pleasure
Fight for the honour
Fight for the splendour
Fight for your life

Solo

The fighting resumes, a silence looms, the swordsmen move 'gainst each other
A cut and a thrust, a parry, a blow, a stab to the heart and you're down
The Angel of Death hears your last breath, meanwhile the Reaper looks on

Fought for the honour
Fought for the splendour
Fought for the pleasure
Fought for the honour
Fought for the splendour
Fought to the death
