lyrics

Call him any other name
Tell him he should be ashamed
For he has no place, no longer he belongs
And your father who was king is dead
Life sucked from his lungs

So pack your bags and go
The choice not yours to make
Leave this land once yours
Or your bones and body, we shall break

Donalbain
Taken from you land and broken down, down, down to the ground
Donalbain
Why are you always so sad
For one day, you shall be king

Drag him across the stormy sea
Take him to the holy priest and force him to believe
Bleed him dry and work him to the bone
Leave the rats to gnaw his dying body as he lies there all alone

For his blood is blue in blue
His mind has not yet died
Remain in destitution
Until your time to rise, rise, rise, rise,

Donalbain
Taken from you land and broken down, down, down to the ground
Donalbain
Why are you always so sad
For one day, you shall be king

Years pass, minutes, hour’s turn to days
For 17 years life lost, time taken away
Dear brother, your time has come to leave
As your fathers only wish for you, was to be king

Donalbain
Taken from you land and broken down, down, down to the ground
Donalbain
Why are you always so sad
For one day, you shall be king
