Defenders of Bú-Tik Palace Lyrics

Walls collapsing all around
Heads high face our own demise
Bolts of lightning strike the ground
Demons of the mind excise
Gunfire sounds the first attack
Brothers in arms to the end
Putrid bodies on their backs
Sacred symbols will defend
Who now stands before me like a ghost within a dream? (Within a dream)
When did come the day when things became not what they seem? (Not what they seem)
Outside of this palace where my loyalties to lie (Where do they lie?)
For the gods or demons with but one I choose to die
Bridges crashing to the ground
Heads high watch them as they fall
Tremble at the thunderous sound
Hear the siren's final call
Cannons ripping us to shreds
Brothers, where have you all gone?
Demons collecting the dead
Spirit's final breath is drawn
Who now stands before me like a ghost within a dream? (Within a dream)
When did come the day when things became not what they seem? (Not what they seem)
Outside of this palace where my loyalties to lie (Where do they lie?)
For the gods or demons with but one I choose to die (I choose to die)
Ghosts that I see, haunting my dreams
Surrounding me, what to believe?
Sunset decries, nightfall's demise
Mirror's reflection is blinding I cannot seeTimeless sentence
Sounds of the shackles grow louder, insanity
Timeless sentence
Timeless sentence
Timeless sentence
Timeless sentence
Timeless sentence
War of the ages, the violence returnsImmortal warriors escape from the urn
Hundreds of years and we pledge hundreds more
Infinite hatred for those at our door

千年也萬年我孤魂已束縛佇遮...千年也萬年生死簿的名字目睭前一逝一逝...生死簿的名字千年也萬年生死簿的名字

War of the ages, the violence returns
Immortal warriors escape from the urn
Hundreds of years and we pledge hundreds more
Infinite hatred for those at our door

千年也萬年

Violence returns

生死簿的名字

Souls will not burn
Burst from the urnViolence returns

千年也萬年?

Inspiration of this song - The BuTik Palace in Puli was used as command headquarters by Japanese colonial government to repress a Seediq Aboriginal Uprising in Wushe in 1930. During the initial phase of the 228 Massacre in 1947, militiamen in Taiwan also used it as its command headquarters. The chants in the second half of the song are the names of all martyrs who sacrificed themselves in resistance against dictators and fought for independence.

※ 暮沉武德殿:埔里武德殿為1930年霧社事件中日本政府的剿番本部。亦為1947年二二八事件的台灣民兵指揮本部。本曲後半段念咒般低吟,為台灣史上對抗獨裁、爭取獨立自主而犧牲的所有先烈姓名。
