1. INTRO

(Instrumental)




2. THE NINE WORLDS BURN

Trembling shakes the earth and quakes
Bonds fetter and burst
A shuddering World tree and the absence of light
Decaying roots and waters that loses its glory
Skies split asunder.
None stand above!

Swallowed = the golden sun
and the moon devoured
Soil stained and the sky poisoned
Wolf run free and the Serpent rises from slumber
Scorched and burned the crust of the earth

Hearts of stone
On Vigrids plain
A hallowed land
Hark! Hear! The resounding horn
Carry us home
When we fall
On Vigrids plain
Heimdall! Blow the Giallarhorn

As the stars now tumble from the heavens
and the Watcher sound the horn at last
All will sink beneath the sea
Seen in the fog the ship of dead mens nails
Bring forces of Chaos
All ablaze colliding.
The nine worlds burn!

Hearts of stone
On Vigrids plain
A hallowed land
Hark! Hear! The resounding horn
Carry us home
When we fall
On Vigrids plain
Heimdall! Blow the Giallarhorn

Hearts of stone
On Vigrids plain
A hallowed land
Hark! Hear! The resounding horn
Carry us home
When we fall
On Vigrids plain
Heimdall! Blow the Giallarhorn




3. THE DISPOSSESSED

Fifteen nights of pouring rain
Night of dull unbearable pain
I move at night and sleep by day
Don't know any other way

I will always be here
They will curse, they will fear
They will wave their torches
And their spears in the night
I will always be here
I will always appear
In rumours and legends
Of greed and betrayal
Retribution and vengeance

I know you count me out for good
But I don't think you understood
I lick my wounds and dare to dream
I curse, I year, I plan and scheme

The fifteenth day, now the night falls
You're safe behind your garden walls
I roam the woods, broken and sad
You took from me the little I had

The sixteenth day I celebrate
The sixteenth day, I seal my fate
To be an out cast, never be
A part of your sick treachery.




4. GAP OF GINNUNGS

In the beginning there was nought but distant past
There was nothing... nothing but a yawning Gap
A great emptiness = unending formless and void
No up, no down
No light, no darkness
No North nor South
No East not West
No sound... nor silence
A chasm bound on either side by fire and ice
Nifeheim = of terrible cold and darkness of unbearable heat and flame = Muspelheim
Ginnungagap = Gap of Ginnungs
Ginnungagap
"Ofold... was the Age"
Ginnungagap = Gap of Ginnungs
Ginnungagap
The Primeval Void, the Pre-creation
Time From flesh to Earth
From bone to Mountain
From skull to Heaven ...of the frost cold
Giant from Blood = river and sea
From teeth and bone shattered
Rocks boulders and stone ...of the frost cold
Giant Muspelheims sparks made their way into the Gap
And met with the ice of Nifelheim
From melting poison drops = Ymer and Audbumbla formed
Emergence of structure
Reformed and life was born
Reform... and life was born




5. BOUND TO REUNITE

Lost drowned in darkness
Without your wisdom to guide me
I'll seek the world for answers while you Bifrost walked
Your legacy is my guidance
Through dark ages to come
I'll remember what you taught me, honour your life unbound

Lead me the way
To Oden's golden hall in Valhall = reunite
When fate in me call
Lead me the way
When worlds around me fall
We're bound to reunite
In rememberance standing tall

Wrapped in grief I ride
To seek your bloodthirst foe
Retaliate your death
To world's end I will go
I carve your story in stone
For the world to know
You'll always be remembered
Oh, brother, protect my soul




6. NORDVEGR

Long for North
Burst from the frigid seas
From North with Njord aside
To ravage the civilised nations
And wash the filth away
Death is right upon you
As the ravens circling high
With blood of the enemy
Swords shine red in the sky
Never give up of the old ways, Harjafader
Writing history in enemies blood.
Valfadr, never give up on the old ways.
Harjafader, from ashes and bloodied soil
We're sworn!
Back to North
Soon to be gone
A future to end in fire
As the battle rages on
Of your children a funeral pyre
The joy of mercy none
Spread grief and split your tongue
Under the Gods protection
Fell in chaos.
Pale white and cold
Swords sang: rejoice once more
Rejoice once more
Your death
Back to North




7. UP ON THE MOUNTAIN

Up on the mountain
Up from this dark valley
From treacherous marshlands
To dead barren rock
Up on the mountain
Where fires seen dancing
Where boulders seen rolling
Whole worlds seen unfolding
Too cold the night
Too little sunlight
Curled up dreaming in the moonlight
Hiding in the bog
So steep the hillsides
Surrounding us on all sides
Caught here sinking in the damp night
But we never lost the hope
Never lost the hope
Be glad now survivors
Now the first light of dawn
Lets us dream once again
Dream of immortality
Be glad now survivors
As the mist now dispels
Revealing the plain lands
A world with no end




8. PLAGUE-RIDDEN REBIRTH

From the past came the perfect shadow
Passing silent the dead of the night
A shadow of mankind's repentance
Carried by a pestilent wind
Come, come forth.
Come rape the earth
Come once again bring tragedy anew
Come, come now!
Plague–ridden rebirth
Come ride the pestilential wind
Fumes of death hung in the air
In the mist of waters it's crawling
Farwell Earth's bliss and welcome plague
Potent in flesh and potent in blood
Rise, rise my friend.
Rise upon the Earth
Rise shine in splendour.
Grasp the poisoned well
Rise, rise of fiend.
Come preach the end
Come ride the pestilential wind
The hand of darkness came to reap
A murderous breath swept clean
"Bring out your dead, bring out your dead"
A brother in penitent sin
Come ride the wind, come ride the wind
Come walk the earth once more
Come, come forth.
Come rape the Earth
Come once again bring tragedy anew
Come, come now!
Plague-ridden rebirth
Come ride the pestilential wind
From sea to shore horror reveal
Black rats fleas in thousands
A sickness more cruel more savage than war
A pestilence that's foreseen the End




9. HARVEST (THE END)

The land in silence stands
Our good and fertile land
Shrouded in a dress of green
But time will come to harvest
Now singing through the trees
All joyous melodies
Now young men sow their seed
And time will come to harvest (The End)
All young men making plans
Godlike in the arrogance
Heading for foreverland
As the time will come to harvest
Oh glorious silence
Of worlds gone headlong
Now resistance is futile
But our blessful persistence
Is but a tribute
From this world to the next
We revive and we mend
We stave and we defend
A life well spent
And an inevitable end If the words they speak are true
Time is running out for you
Time is running out for me
With the rising of the sea
Black clouds gather in the sky
Now when gods come home to die
Peaceful calm meadows
Turn to windswept battlefields
By the final words I speak
When I'm wounded scared and weak
Don't judge me to harshly
For such is all mens fate
Oh, glorious silence
From this world to the End.
