Runrig perform An Toll Dubh (translation: The Dungeon) live at Borlum Farm, Drumnadrochit, Loch Ness. This is an excerpt from their Year of the Flood DVD.

Lyrics:
"It's really important that we keep singing, keep playing, keep performing the Gaelic songs: Here's two for you - an old one and a new one."

Taobh cùil an doruis cha bhi grian
Suidh aig bòrd
Cha bhi biadh 's cha bhi fìon
Taobh cùil an doruis cha bhi grian
Cha bhi biadh 's cha bhi fìon
Le èiginn ar n-èirigh às ar suain
Le èiginn ar n-èirigh às ar suain
An Gaidheal 'sa leabaidh
An Gaidheal 'na shuain
Le èiginn ar n-èirigh às ar suain

Thàinig e à Sasainn ann
Thàinig e
Le eachaibh luath is iuchair throm
Thàinig e à Sasainn ann
Le eachaibh luath is iuchair throm
Le èiginn ar n-èirigh às ar suain
Le èiginn ar n-èirigh às ar suain
An Gaidheal 'sa leabaidh
Le èiginn ar n-èirigh às ar suain

Air làr 'san toll-dhubh cha bhi grian
Cha bhi gealach
'S dubh an oidhche chaidleas sinn
Air làr 'san toll-dhubh cha bhi grian
'S dubh an oidhche chaidleas sinn
Le èiginn ar n-eirigh às ar suain
Le èiginn ar n-eirigh às ar suain
An Gaidheal 'sa leabaidh
Le èiginn ar n-eirigh às ar suain

Le èiginn ar n-eirigh às ar suain
Le èiginn ar n-eirigh às ar suain
An Gaidheal 'sa leabaidh
Le èiginn ar n-eirigh às ar suain

English Translation:
On the other side of the door there will be no sun
Sitting at the table
There will be no food and no wine
On the other side of the door there will be no sun
There will be no food and no wine
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
The Gael has gone to bed
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber

He came from the south
He came
On a fast horse and with a heavy key
He came from the south
On a fast horse and with a heavy key
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
The Gael has gone to bed
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber

On the dungeon floor there will be no sun
There will be no moon
Dark will be the night as we sleep
On the dungeon floor there will be no sun
Dark will be the night as we sleep
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
The Gael has gone to bed
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber

It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
The Gael has gone to bed
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
