- The Japanese lyrics roughly translate to "I hate you for everything you've done", emphazising the hatred that burns inside the Ronin.
- This song is the first in a planned trilogy about the Samurai way of life, each one representing one stage of life. Ronin symbolizes "Maturity", whereas the other two songs will be about "Birth" and "Death". Don't know when they will ever be released.
- At one show, Lord Python's guitar stopped working in this song and he had to sing the solo. No one in the crowd noticed because he did a great job.
- On the demo, the song was sung by Lord Python, but on the album version, Sir Serpent took command. Lord Python still screams the Samurai's vow for revenge. On the tape version of the album, we included a "back to the roots" version with Lord Python on vocals.


The law of your life is the law of the sword.
No one can stand in your way!
Your lord lost his life – was betrayed by his men.
Now vengeance is all that you seek!

Anata ga shitakoto subete wo nik undeimasu!

Honour of the blade,
Ronin – revenge is your fate!
Fighting for the right,
Ronin – leave no one alive!

Raise your sword to the rising sun,
you have to believe in your fate!
Flaming thunderstrikes shall break through the night,
just leaving bloodshed behind.
Your search for revenge will never end,
a hero that nobody knows.
A lone swordsman – against all odds,
now scream your battlecry!

Ronin – master of the sword!
