1. The Merrow’s Chant
2. Be Blessed
3. The Eclipse
4. Into the Realm of the Elves

1. The Merrow’s Chant

Over the seas they have sailed
To finally find the isle, Elf helm
They will slay abyssal gods, conquer the waves, break all the rocks
That will fall along their way

The broken ship reaches the dreadry shore
From a forgotten place, remnant of yore
The peasants in these menacing times
Scrutinize them, and wait for the fight

The lonely girl finds the sailor
She lost her clan in the icy meanders
And languishes her forgotten mother
She escapes the mad creatures

Over the seas they have sailed
To finally find the isle, Elf helm
They will slay abyssal gods, conquer the waves, break all the rocks
That will fall along their way

On the huge waves of the horizon
Sails the crew for its expedition
Off the lonely and barren coasts
When it was chased by ghosts

The 27 guns thunder
And the brigands are sent from the bottom
Banished into filthy tentacles
Of a god, vile aberration

Over the seas they have sailed
To finally find the isle, Elf helm
They will slay abyssal gods, conquer the waves, break all the rocks
That will fall along their way

Woken up on the fateful day
Its mouth threatens to annihilate
When the warrior and his enchanted friend
Slice into the beast and pierce it to the end

Lost in the pit of their slashed round
The merrows sing revealing sounds
And with their cheerfully rallied daughter
They leap from the water for the winning hour

Over the seas they have sailed
To finally find the isle, Elf helm
They will slay abyssal gods, conquer the waves, break all the rocks
That will fall along their way

Story

In the “Fantasia” arc of Berserk, Guts and his companions head to the elven island of Skellig in hopes of finding a cure for Casca’s condition. A young girl named Isma, who lives alone on an island, joins them to battle a monstrous kraken, with the help of mermaids.

2. Be Blessed

To the black rock of glorious penance
The crowd gathers at the pinnacle
Who shreds, tortures and burns innocence
Fortunate to test their faith in the miracle

The brave woman stands in the mire
And suffers to support her sisters
When he defies the great cardinal
The sane world starts to fall

Be blessed for your blind devotion The church will purify your passions
Be blessed to starve for all saints ‘Cause greed, for evil, is a blade

The mountain is drowned in hell
The cowardly people condemn Hélène
For the salvation of their prayers
And deceived hope immolates the worshipers

The egg on the tower cries
On this painting of the 5 crimes
He wraps the baby in his body,
Instrument of his slow agony

Be blessed for your blind devotion The church will purify your passions
Be blessed to starve for all saints ‘Cause greed, for evil, is a blade

Story

In the “Tower of Conviction” arc of Berserk, Guts and Casca arrive in the village of Albion, under the sway of a sect led by the fanatic Mozgus. During this arc, a deformed infant is absorbed by an apostolic egg, an empathic demonic creature that seeks to connect with this equally rejected being. At the same time, the Apostles, demonic entities affiliated to the God Hand, sow chaos and terror in the village.

3. The Eclipse

Struck by the revenge of a banished friendship
Buried under the rubble of the betrayal night
The king then splits the unhealthy sky
And save them from this deadly grip

Branded by the red abyss of hate
They are hunted and harassed in pain
The sleeping monster calls for revenge
When the lamb cries for sustenance

The black moon keeps the slaughter a secret
Away from reason and logic
Traumas in their tormented nightmares
But they will survive the eclipse

The beast driven mad by this cruel absence
Holds back its fangs from the last impotence
And its wife, terrified, plunged into darkness
Defends her value and her flesh

She gives birth in a surge of sadness
To her sweet child marked with a curse
Distorted by evil, despite his kindness
Who bears the pain of the universe

The black moon keeps the slaughter a secret
Away from reason and logic
Traumas in their tormented nightmares
But they will survive the eclipse

She feels him and blesses him,
With an unfailing love for her one
Who will look for his family over time
When the full moon will untie his body
When he’ll break out of his prison

The black moon keeps the slaughter a secret
Away from reason and logic
Traumas in their tormented nightmares
But they will survive the eclipse

Story

In the “Golden Age” arc of Berserk, during the Eclipse, most of the members of the Falcon’s troop are sacrificed in a ritual led by the God Hand. Guts and Casca survive, but their spirit is broken.

4. Into the Realm of the Elves

Beyond the waves and the wrecks
Hides the island of witches
Vast enclosure cut off from men
Utopian peace for secular studies

The knight takes the swords and defeats
Many spells and scarecrow fields
He ransacks the ramparts of the longed-for land
And the relic of the past, the wicker man

The warrior, survivor of the band
Reborns from ashes, sword in the hand
She faces the fear that broke her mind
Beyond evil and madness, hope is what she’ll find

Queen of this favored realm
Humble lady of the magical land
She holds in her roots the dreams of humans
These buried secrets that defy fate

The witches brave all sorrows
They cruch and kill with what they know
They fight for the doll and its porcelain
Untie the fervent dog from its chains

The warrior, survivor of the band
Reborns from ashes, sword in the hand
She faces the fear that broke her mind
Beyond evil and madness, hope is what she’ll find

The warrior, survivor of the band
Reborns from ashes, sword in the hand
She faces the fear that broke her mind
Beyond evil and madness, hope is what she’ll find

Her spirit has won; she finally meets her friends
In spite the dark pains that torment her head
Her husband will protect her on the way
And all three will live until the last day

The warrior, survivor of the band
Reborns from ashes, sword in the hand
She faces the fear that broke her mind
Beyond evil and madness, hope is what she’ll find

Story

In the “Elfhelm Island” arc of Berserk, Guts and his companions travel to Elfhelm Island to restore Casca’s sanity. There, Farnese and Schierke go into her mind to reconstitute her psyche and bring her back to reality.
