The wooden house is covered with the green of moss
On the deep road
The Moso bamboo with fallen leaves
There is mist on top of the rock pile
This kind of life in seclusion is called Jiang Hu
Arrows dance and fly in the sky
Unexpectedly they cover up the sunrise on the city wall
Who is crying?
You understand
You understand
You hurry
However much barbaric strength you have you pull however many bows
Listen to me, there's no way for martial arts
To be any higher than the bell in the cloister
The still wind
The tree that is calm like water

My fate is unparalleled
I rule over the kingdom
Yet in the middle of the landslide victory
My dim voice carries sadness
I pitch camp all the way
The edge of the bronze knife
Will not be used easily
The common people take priority

My fate is unparalleled
I rule over the kingdom
Yet after breaking into the city
I smile and say I do not long for war at all
I wait for a different race and look to the sky
We make an alliance with the drink of blood
I wait for loyalty
Become the dragon from the fire

The broken old teapot
A few miles away
The dust from the horse's hooves
The city with the rising smoke signal
This kind of way of the world is called troubled times

That history is already blurred
Yet the rust on the knife comes out of the ground very clearly
It is me

You go
You go
You continue
I hit the wooden fish percussion
I start to meditate about this battle
I attack the city and plunder
If you want to be cold-blooded you need courage
Wielding my sword and leaving
Cutting through iron like mud

You go
You go again
You continue to be no match for me
The killer blow
The flute from far away
Sounds the news of your defeat in battle
Maintain that murderous look
The feeling of wanting to win
The drive that makes me rule the world
