1. THE CROSSING

(Instrumental)




2. HEL - GODDESS OF THE UNDERWORLD

Cold, this misty night
A black moon's preparing my mind
Out here, I seek her shrine
I welcome the queen of the lowest world
Into the ice hall
Where mirrors reflect my soul
She's freezing my tears
Taking all fears

Two sides to her face
Her claws pierce or embrace
Enter, with open eyes
You'll see her garden of delight

To the within
Beyond our memory
Falling so deep
Where unborn souls sleep

Hail, to the queen of death
Her shadow walks with you
Remember her kind
And understand life

Invisible mate
Waiting to seal our fate
Watch my strife
Hel, guard my life

Cold, this misty night
A black moon's preparing my mind
Beneath eternal fog
I have seen clear




3. FRIGGA'S WEB

Silence before the storm
I reach the house hidden by the night

A light I saw I knocked all quietly
I entered; a woman sat by the spinning wheel

"What brings you here my child", she asked?
"Don't you know our lady keeps her secrets well?"

It's my life I am running from
It's my fate I am hiding from,
oh, would the Goddess speak to me?

Her ways I don't understand, the mysteries that I must know,
Oh, would the Mother see through me?

"Why don't you rest my child", she said, "I will seek her advice, I will wake you when it's time"

All night by the spinning wheel, she sang an ancient tune and in the morn' her work was done

In the distance I heard a call, I awoke and I held the spindle in my hand

My other hand it held new life, the Goddess had been by my side and her blessing was mine.




4. WHERE THE LONELY SOULS GO

Won't you come inside?
Rest a while, you must be tired
It has been a long way
But it's not far before you reach your goal
The end of this road
Another step to the new dimension
Before you travel on
Let me hear your story

Where do you come from, tell me of your early days
Tell me of gladness, sorrows, was your winter long and cold?
How did you let go?
Tell me and I will listen all night
At dawn I will wish you well
When you go where the lonely souls go

It seems so long ago
The memory of years long gone
One day I'll be there
At the crossroad where time has no name
Will I pass on or will I return?
Will you meet me
When I go where the lonely souls go?

And the man in a blue cloak
Smiles at me, he speaks to me
But I cannot hear for his words fade with the dream
The answers I seek, I will, I will never know
Will you show me?
Won't you tell me where the lonely souls go?

And you out there, lost ones,
Hiding within a crowd
Searching for the other soul
That you once left behind
You will also stand here at the end of the road, the crossing point
And alone you will go...
Where the lonely souls go




5. LITTLE LIGHT

Oh, little light
Sweet little child
Brought into this world
Helpless small soul
Naked and cold
So much warmth you need

Oh, little light
Poor little child
Too easy you were made
They owned no mind
Nor know a heart
They do not care for your pain

Most heartbreaking sight
See the fright
In the eyes of a tormented child
When I see in my mind
I cannot bear their cries
Oh, could I save all those innocent lives

Oh, little light
Dead little child
They blew out your flame
Where are you now?
Have you found love?
Has your soul left your lonely grave?

How could there be such deeds?
Oh, could I curse such fiends!
Be they haunted eternally!

Don't give me excuse
'Cause nothing can make right
Hurting a helpless child




6. ALBION AUTUMN

Albion Autumn, where did the heart go?
Here where the land ends
We cry to the ocean
Words swallowed by the wind
Voices are fading
Words disappear

Albion Autumn, where did the will go?
Below the crushing sea
Deep is the water
Kneeling by the edge
Lips kissed faintly
Will I see again?

Albion Autumn... take me there




7. THE SOUL OF A HOUND

When I found you I wandered dreading for the day to come
Our years went past; your life went fast,
Forever you're leaving me now

Farewell my beauty; raven black friend
My sweet companion
My tears shall be my promise
That you're always in my heart

Always in my heart...

... Always...




8. THE HOME THAT I WILL NEVER SEE

Vast forests with evergreen trees
Foggy hills the eye can see
The wind sweeps through a valley
That lies by the deep blue see

A village from another time
Awakens with the misty dawn
This is my home my mind shows me
The home that I will never see

Small houses, carved in dragonheads and runes
The smell of tar and burning wood
Men and women breathe their souls to their craft
Some dancing to the lyre's tunes

A young man wraps his arms round me
One dancing flame we came to be
The only vows I chose to know
This is the place I call my home

Oh, the vision tortures me
I will never really see
I will never smell its smell
Nor touch the face of my loved one

My village by the deep blue sea
Today an ugly factory
Oh, why has it become my fate?
That I am here one thousand years too late




9. RAVEN NIGHT

Lost in the neon twilight
I feel my nature waking inside
Would you look towards me?
Would you dare to enter the threshold to my mind?

Can you see me dancing?
A silent voice singing for you
Hear my Raven call
Would you be enchanted and follow me?

Lost is but a dream fading
And soon I'm calling out again
Would you come to release me?
Would you tear the icy chains from my skin?
