Northland WandererBehold the winter Deafening ageless silence Behold the fury Thy death is drawing near Enter the long night Hold fast thy fleeting hope now Ensure survival Embrace thy growing fear Venture across the tundra Bearing the flame of life My will my strength unbroken Son of the north, son of the light Scanning the vast horizon A village gleaming bright Invigorated with the promise that I'll sleep tonight Time slowed down as I drew near Promise swiftly turned to fear Town ablaze and death abound Bodies strewn on blood-soaked ground All those who lie before us Too weak, laden with fright We'll take your goods, then take your life Is there not one among you worthy of dying right? Save face and dignity Draw steel, stand and fight [Chorus] Lord, son of the north Raise up your war banners high Come, fulfill your oath Fight for your kin Fight to survive The demon hordes surround us The sky ablaze at night It’s time, rally and conquer Summon our Nordic might Came down with righteous fury And power forged in hate The northland wanderer Spilled demon blood and rewrote fate Legend states this was the time Free folk shattered the paradigm One by one the dark ones fell Ranks broke fleeing back to hell [Chorus] Across the plains traverse the hills Lost in the frigid sea No fear of death the northland wanderer is free With sword in hand and torch ablaze Unleashed a battle cry The northland wanderer leads all the free folk Heads held high Die
Ocean In Storm
Ocean In StormTied in the lines of my oblique design Wither in your embrace Defy; redefine the meaning of true sight Suffer the weight of ageless silence Blindness [Chorus] Ring thy heart with steel Pulling for the surface, blades dividing the rays Ablaze with the fire to be Vanquished by the waves (vanquished by the waves) Ocean in storm Crushing grip of ice By name, power, and right hand By phases of the ever-moving moon Fickle as the snows of autumn Deadly as the deep still waters Swirling seas, churning red Apparition of godlike beauty Pull me under the frozen crimson waves Wings embrace, flooded by sulfur In the burning swirling tide Buried by the night [Chorus x2] Extinguished Go Crystal shards of broken visions Scarlet ribbons Tapestry of crimson ribbons Broken visions Crystal shards of broken visions Scarlet ribbons Oh - death on flaxen wings Swirling seas, churning red Apparition of godlike beauty Pull me under the frozen crimson waves Slivers of glass on perfect porcelain skin Marked again, a harbinger of the end (vanquished by the waves) Of the end
Fiction ErasedReason and faith feeding blood to the ground Fortunes and lives to be buried and drowned Superimposed over the last learned ignorance Senses engaged across the next false brilliance Evening shone in a silence fell As the goddess knelt and the fire repelled Broken shield in a frozen cage When our instincts fled and adrenaline raged Killing of time in a weighing of life On the balance of souls in Osiris' rites Fiction erased in a blaze of white [Chorus] I cannot see the stars that were promised to me Sick with your pride Why, shattering the mask of an evening’s disguise An offering of dawn An unbidden call Take thy beak from my heart Disregard the gray that time can't mend Lost in our own minds Naught you know of the songs that move us Years turn our lies into truths - redacted fables Invented to subvert the symbols We thought we created Disquieting to feel their edges shaping [Chorus] Cryptic phrase Artifice lost in analytical haze Patterns to wind the fraying ends of the rational Ciphers to bind unchecked zeal of the radical Fallacy wrought from the memory lost in sleep Never to break from the trammeling shade of night Radiance dimmed by a sufferance of deceit Fiction erased in a blaze of white [Chorus x2] A warping of the key Forever held in thrall
A Curse Written Scarlet
A Curse Written ScarletThe gates are open All the barriers are weak - rotting in moonlight Whirling dance through ghostly dusk, in revel Solstice deftly frays the seams between The real, the elements, and mind Rippling footprints on the ethereal, trampled in green and gold, redirected Irradiant imprints, cryptic deceptions - to repel our enemies Ribbon of doubt lay beneath the outermost layers and spheres of thought Spun into a maze of deception Sword's cutting edge, all but invisible, crooning in frequency One in three to break, one in eight to bend Permutations flash and streak as lines written across the skies Sixteen heartbeats to repent or strike [Chorus] The gatekeepers slain, the keyholders taken A changing of guard The generals tamed, the ring-bearers broken A purging of gods Time set in crossing wormholes, cleverly wrought A curse written scarlet to displace the power of the gods Brilliant rays, weave thy working child of Tar Through the blackened threads of twilight receding Silver beam, refracted, splintering in memory Striking mirrors, throwing sparks - in delicate balance Paradigms cast in all directions A thousand eyes from shifting shadows Flowing skeins of imperfection, sickening ichor Welling up into churning shallows of gore [Chorus] [Chorus x2]
Servants Of Fate
Servants Of FateHeed my visions One-Eyed God By the Tree and Nine The forming of your kind And your ultimate demise [Chorus] For the life that burst into light (Reignited) From the void rose heroes and sages Then the Three arrived in the night (Uninvited) Held in their hands the fate of the ages Fate of the gods It began with the war against the Vanir God against god To sow the seeds of discord Flawed against flawed The Trickster will slay the Innocent Would you know more? Now chained he plots destruction Will you know more? Trapped in a pit held by his son's intestines Venom that drips into his eyes Nidhogg he feeds upon the roots of the Life-Tree Fenrir awaits the time to strike The fetters will break The Beast will run Brother kills brother kills father kills son Yggdrasil shakes Fires of Surtr consume it all burn it all away What of the Father? What of the Twelve? Jotunheim groans Dwarves gather for war in their halls of stone What of the Aesir? What of the Elves? Eagle of pale beak Wreaking destruction, ripping out the entrails of the weak What of the Father? What of the Twelve? Hel's sword generates the sun Crags topple, there's nowhere to run What of the Aesir? What of the Elves? [Chorus] We the Three Weavers of the thread Thy desire to transpire as we decree In the momentary silence The breath before the stand The armies gather for judgement By the Norns' unyielding hands I tell you this All-Father As fires scorch the skies Not a moment's hesitation The time has come to die Odin falls to the Wolf Freyr is slain by the Fire with a single stroke What of the ages? What of this place? Watcher takes the Trickster's head Torn asunder the Wolf lies bleeding dead What of our vengeance? What of our race? Thunder strikes at the Snake Both lie still in the deadly venom's wake What of the ages? What of this place? Earth sinks in the sea, sky turns black, Ragnarok, everything reduced to ash What of our vengeance? What of our race?
Betrayer Of Hope
Betrayer Of HopeStorms of saa blow across your fields Laying waste to the knowledge your civilization once wrought Pulling cities into the sea Paaren Disen trembles Disenchanted sorcerer philosopher Intent on the unraveling of all reality [Chorus] These hands - shape twisted reality This weave - stars fall from the heavens Unsealed - beasts rise from the ashes Master Interloper / Betrayer Of Hope Whisper to me Lews Therin Prophecies lost in the fires of heaven Before the Wheel you're driven Another age passes, another life given The pattern is naught; just you and I Endless cycles reliving your lies One slip and the Light is lost forever You cannot stop the Shadow [Chorus] I offer you darkness, the ending begun Ta'veren mean nothing with the pattern undone Dross and scum of the mundane Sleep now let the Great Lord reign By thine hand did you slay Ilyena She lay betwixt red mirror-pools of death Beautiful amidst a spill of golden hair The Great Lord's glamour now reveals this truth Sharper than any your One Power could divine Dead by your hand, Kinslayer Oh, to drown the sun and destroy the moon Unleash the balefire, raise the shadowsteel End these petty ages, unmake the Wheel Be silent in your doom Your blackened, charred, and unmarked tomb Is this still too esoteric for popular appeal? [Chorus] Rise no more Rise no more Rise no more Awaken no more
