lyrics

Skin cold in the open air
Ocean sprays on my chest, bare
At the bow I see her standing there
War braids woven in her hair
Breast heaving under leather plates
I know we’ll both achieve our fate
The water boils in the dragon’s wake
War horns blow, the cliff side quakes
A thousand men wait upon the shore
Anger gripping to my core
Take up arms, release the oars
Above our heads two ravens soar
We live to die and nothing more
That’s what we’re fighting for
Raised in blood and brutal war
There’s no one keeping score
Our memories fade in tales of lore
A constant earthly chore
We live to die and nothing more
That’s what we’re fighting for
Forming our shield walls, I see she’s not there
What has become of my maiden fair?
Volleys of arrows scatter our ranks
Horsemen assemble to cut off our flank
In chaos I see her falling behind
She’s out of reach and I’m out of time
Calvary charging to take her life
No thread escapes the ancient Norns’ knife
Trampled by horses, I watch her fall
I go berserk as I curse them all
Throwing my shield, now a spear in each hand
I race to her side in the blood-soaked sand
With hatred the first spear from hand is released
Finding its mark in the chest of a beast
Rider is thrown through the air like a stone
My wrath is unmatched though I stand here alone
Smoke rises in towers that leap from the shore
Our dragons now sleep on the ocean floor
I turn to face my enemy’s blades
They sink between ribs and my vision fades.
