I came across this song yesterday, and have had some trouble understanding several parts of the lyrics, could I have some indications ?
Here are the lyrics (the punctuation is left blank because I am not sure of it, the commas come from the lyrics written in the link above) , followed by my questions :
A storm is loosed upon the sea
whose eye is stained with tears.
A wretch Hell-bound and bent on blood
the makings of the fearful's fears -- What is the meaning of 'makings' here ?
The tide it stole away her grace,
the depths, they wouldn't claim her
A toil begat by father's blood -- what is begat ? I couldn't find it on wordreference, so I assume it has to be some form of a verb i do not know
This path was laid before her
Redemption borne by brigand's blood
A blight upon the darkness
The pact embraced, a road unsought
The Maiden of Death won't be unwrought -- Searching on the internet lead me to believe that wrought is a synonym of forged, but i could not find 'unwrought', and if the meaning here is 'un-forged' i don't really get it
---- Some music ----
Her wrath is known throughout the black -- what is 'the black' ? I thought it might be a metaphor for the night, however that is but a mere guess
The gardens of death she is tending
Vengeance is her only ward I am unsure what 'ward' means here, is it like 'field' ?
Beware the blood red rose's thorn
