Leaving The World Of Mortals


I lie awake on the battlefield

A fatal wound in my breast

I'm soon to be dead

Yet still I am thinking...

A sail on the horizon

Vanishing in the crimson dawn...

My comrades are gone...

Victorious! - and silence descends...

Suddenly I hear the hooves

Not born from this earth

The valkyries come

They found me worthy

I'm drawn upon a horse's back

Shivering with fright and joy

I know I have died

To live forevermore

Leaving the world of mortals

I already can see those gates

Once arrived I will join the feast

Where all my brave ancestors wait

Welcomed by ravens

I'm shown the place I've earned

Around the fire we sit and drink

Until time ends...
