lyrics

I’ve walked Midgard for decades, and never met my end
I’ve watched my brothers fall, and watched them all ascend
What more could Odin ask for? What more have I to give?
Is this some evil curse, that I’ll forever live?
My beard has all gone silver, my body aches for war
But there is nothing in this realm, that is worth fighting for
My friends are only memories, of family, I’m bereft
Horn of mead and firelight, are all that I have left
The Christian fire spread itself like an ember gone astray
Their flames spread without notice, till they were well upon their way
Now their ashes cover everything, and turn our pagan world black
As I stare into the firelight, I feel the old urge to attack
I grab my leather armor, it sleeps beneath the dust
My sword unused needs sharpening, to remove the years of rust
With fuel and torches burning, the church will fall in flames
And all who dare to stop me, shall fall the same
Our weapons meet upon the steps, I see their numbers grow
I kill without regard, and watch them pile up below
Age has come to haunt me, I cannot keep this rate
I shall forsake the Norns, and choose my own fate
I kneel to no man, I’ll not be kept in chains
The men carrying shackles, have come in vain.
