Track Name: Honour of The Sword
Far beyond thew beginning of time
Honor taught throughout the northern tribes
Fighting for their land and pagan lore
With odin in their hearts and the mighty sword

Forever trained in battle
To fear no man nor foe
These warriors of fur and steel
With heathen blood they await

Serpents of the oceans and winds
Guided by the oath of their gods
Over cold, bitter, desolate darkness
Lays the demons of the sea
Track Name: My Land Of Ice
The majesty of night approaches
Auroras lick through the night sky's
Over the snow covered mountains
Through the chasms of forgotten time
The storm rages on the horizon
Past the darkening forests
Wind howls through the desolate plains
Lands freeze as the winter returns
Track Name: Dragons
Driven by conquest
Further their own kind
Explorers of the north
Dragons from the sea

Guided by the winds
Armour and weapons in hand
With fire in their hearts
Fighting for their homeland

In a clash of thunder
Thor lighting their path
The shores of the damned
Now running red with blood
Track Name: Ashes of Cowards
Step foot onto enemy soil
Serrated blades to carve our foe
Fierce unrelenting attack
Crushing all who stand before us

Burning down the halls of their god
Their false, created illusion of man
Cutting down their filthy disciples
To bring honor to a knowledge lost

No fear of the netherworld
For a warriors death is what we crave
To begin the journey with the valkyrie
And await my place in valhalla

As i fall unto the ground
Lifeblood draining from within
I see the wings that fly fly before me
To carry my soul to a place of honor
Track Name: Into The Darkness
Embracing the darkness
That now floods my light
My time has come
To follow the ancient path

The rites of passage await
My fate guided by the norn
Will i be remembered with honor
Or turn to ash like forgotten memories

I see the wings come forth
Taking my soul to a place of gods
Through portals in the blackened sky
I no longer feel this earthly pain

I see the walls approach my sight
A journey through celestial plains
Through time and space we all unite
My body returning to the earth
Track Name: At One With Odin
Inside The Walls of asgaard
Lays the hall of the slain
Majestic enlightenment surrounds us
Chosen by the mighty raven
The dead re-join the masses
Of fallen kings , gods and warriors
Training to the last breathe
To feast into the nights end

Glasir stands before me
The giant tree of the hall
Our rooftop thatched with golden shields
To guide odin into the end of days

For now we fight and spill the blood
To prepare our coming destiny
Ragnarok approaches now
The worlds will soon defy us all
Track Name: Tumulus
The battlefields fall silent
A scent of blood in the air
Ravens call on the wind
Wolves gather the taste for flesh

Gather thy body from the ground
This fallen warrior is now lifeless
Sculpting the stone of the runic legacy
Preparing the resting place for a man of honor

Tribes gather to bare witness
Grave goods given for the journey
A final farewell for the departed
Let the body return to the soil of the earth
