    About

    It's the nature of time and history that the old ways must give in to the new ways and the modern age. The battle of Shiroyama in 1877 marks the end of an era and is the last stand of the legendary samurai. Led by Saigo Takamori, the samurai was down to 500 warriors at the end of the rebellion when they made their last stand on Mount Shiroyama. At the end of the battle there were only 40 samurai left. They drew their swords and plunged downhill toward the enemy positions until the last of them was mowed down.

    Lyrics

    It's the nature of time that the old ways must give in
    It's the nature of time that the new ways comes in sin
    When the new meets the old it always ends the ancient ways
    And as history told the old ways go out in a blaze

    Encircled by a vulture the end of ancient culture
    The dawn of destiny draws near

    Imperial force defied facing 500 samurai
    Surrounded and outnumbered 60 to 1 the sword face the gun
    Bushido dignified it's the last stand of the samurai
    Surrounded and outnumbered

    As a new age begins the way of the warrior comes to an end
    As a new age begins the ways of the old must apprehend
    It's the nature of time that the old ways must give in
    It's the nature of time that the new ways comes in sin

    An offer of surrender Saigo ignore contender
    The dawn of destiny is here

    Imperial force defied facing 500 samurai
    Surrounded and outnumbered 60 to 1 the sword face the gun
    Bushido dignified it's the last stand of the samurai
    Surrounded and outnumbered

    Until the dawn they hold on
    Only 40 are left at the end
    None alive none survive
    Shiroyama

    Imperial force defied facing 500 samurai
    Surrounded and outnumbered 60 to 1 the sword face the gun
    Bushido dignified it's the last stand of the samurai
    Surrounded and outnumbered

    60 to one facing the gun
    60 to one culture undone
