BALLAD OF THE SWORDS
Lyrics:Frode Glesnes
Music:Audun Wold, Gerhard Storesund & Frode Glesnes

Across the moor we norsemen rode
& skalds to us song
That days of glory soon should be
When swords blood-red were swung
"One eyed father give us strength
my brave kinsmen & I
In Valhalla I your mighty men will meet
if I in this battle die
>From the sky your ravens watching me 
Both of them I see
Thank you Father for letting me know
You watch over me"
At the moor the ravens spoke to me
While skalds did their song
A bitter loss was soon to come
For those I were among

Across the moor we norsemen rode
& skalds to us sung
That days of glory soon should be
When swords blood-red were swung
I say to you - I ask you to
For once be your own lord
Come with me be a part of my
Ballad of the swords


A sudden clash where swords were drawn
was the beginning of my end
With a norsemans pride & courage I fought
I would to Hel them send
Instead I felt cold chilling steel
Stab me from behind
A cravens deed, indeed it was
Peace he should not find
Faded I did, strange beauty I met
The dream for me came true
Brought up I were, Bifrost I saw
My mortal life were through
Your mortal life with children & wife
Wouldn't have no value if you knew as I
About life up here
You would die to be here forever...

Obviously correct, Frode did it himself.

I thought I rated this a year ago... I actually figured it out by myself anyway.
