Blood gushes from the wound
The cut is wide and deep
Right before I turn around
He falls to his knees
A clear song rings in the blade
When steel meets hardend steel
I hear the sound of wood that breaks
A swords cut through my shield

I drop the shield and grab my axe
*A weapon in each fist
A fierce blow makes the helmet crack
The axe cut to the teeth

I rip the axe from the head
Covered in blood and brains
Leave the body lying dead
Ready to strike again
My sword cuts through clothes and skin
Like a hot knife cuts through snow
I smile as the bastard screams
When I twist my sword

Sword in my hand and axe on my side
Valhall awaits! Soon I will die
Sword in my hand and axe on my side
Valhall awaits me, when I die
Bearskin on my back
Wolfsjaw on my head
Valhall awaits me, when I'm dead

I raise my axe above my head
My eyes turned furious rage
Yet more blood will be shed
This is a victorious day!
Blood gushes from the wound
The cut is wide and deep
As they turn around
I fall to my knees

Sword in my hand and axe on my side
Valhall awaits! Soon I will die
Sword in my hand and axe on my side
Valhall awaits me, when I die
Bearskin on my back
Wolfjaw on my head
Valhall awaits me, when I'm dead!

    Every viking's wish is to go to the great halls in the sky, called valhalla. But the only way a viking can reach the great halls, is through the glory and death of battle. No viking ever wishes to lose a battle but the most glorious of all deaths is those of war. And as such, when this man dies in battle, his soul will reach everlasting feasts, and the warm embrace of lost loved ones

    It's a glory to die in battle for the vikings, so the lyrics are correct, this is his final combat, thats why he said valhall awaits him.

    The final glorious battle of a warrior... In the first couple of verses he is slaughtering enemies with reckless abandon. He knows that if he does not make it through this battle he will be greatly rewarded for dying in glorious combat.

    Hey guys the lyrics in the first verse is incorrect. When it says right before i turn around he falls to his knees. I believe it's when before i turn around he falls to his knees. Your correct lyrics link wasn't working
