lyrics

A king returns from foreign lands
To find he’s been the victim of plotting hands
His daughter’s been abducted through treachery
He will not be deceived, he’ll search across the seas
The king’s pursuit spans far and wide
Nearby villages and mountain sides
When all seems lost, his men bring word
An unknown island found where his daughter has been bound
Army amassed, preparing for war
Loading the ships, bloodshed inevitable
Sails are raised as they row from the shore
Wind at their backs, this king’s blessed by Gods
Punching through the waves, give chase, their homelands left behind
The ocean turns to glass, swift flight, horizons rushing by
Land is now in sight, horns blow, bloodlust is in their eyes
For progeny they fight, king’s call, attack is justified
Ships’ bows meet the sand, invade contentious land
Revenge, punish theft, march on without assent
A sight halts the charge, silhouette from afar
King’s kin greets his men, confess, she gave her hand
She pleas to acquiesce, make peace by her demand
Too late, his sword unsheathed, relentless curse requires death
No fear, their battle cry, for Odin they’ll fight and die
A marriage of steel and flesh, blood permeates the firmament
[CHORUS]
Steel blades clash and shield walls smash
Brave men drop, as arrows fall
Hammers crush with each spear thrust
Warriors meet oblivion
*Day fades, combat yields, bodies strewn about the field
Frenzied carnage, an equal match, many wounded, most are dead
Witnessing the harsh events, she, the cause of grave dissent
Lies in wait for night to fall, a curse she’ll weave through magic song
Among the slain, under the moon, casting spells, invoking runes
Fallen men, enchantments raise, new life keeps the Valkyrie at bay
Endlessly, the soldiers fight, meet demise to be revived
Eternal war, till Ragnarok, they’ll never taste the mead in Odin’s halls
[CHORUS x2]
[*] Repeat
[CHORUS X2]
Odin! Save us from this fate! I pray! Valkyries take my soul away!
