Carrion birds thrash the corpses of men
Stacks of smoke rises up t’wards the skies
The fields echoes lifeless as in wake of a storm
Silent rain washes blood from the soil

Where axe met with shield and where arrows dug deep
Through chainmail and flesh and though bone
Where shieldmaidens battlecries once drowned the shrieks
of horses and men
alike facing death

The banners have fallen, the drums have gone quiet
The pyres are burnt to the ground
Soon the earth will cover the withering bones
And the world will forget all the names

What dwells neath the mounds where you walk, modern man
Where you lay down your head just to rest
Can you fathom the strife of the ones here before
Whos quest was for glory and true kingly death

Graced by the fate of a kingly death
Into the embrace of Valkyries
