This forest is growing faster than I can tell
Cell structure eats away at a massive swell
Seems however I'm a victim of circumstance
Hunt for ogres and dwarves
Lion slicer

Run with death
Run with death
White faces coming closer with every step
Earth envelopes taking breath without happenstance
Carve my teeth out ripping through the sheep's head curse
Hunter gatherer
Ridden from the cave

Run with death
Run with death
Gone away
My heart's gone away
Taking everything
My heart's gone away
Take it now

Run with death
Run with death
Gone away
My heart's gone away
Taking everything
My heart's gone away
Take it now

    K-money. I'm a celt. Our history has many legends. The birchmen (a birch is a white tree) being one of them.

    Like "the_brutal_one" said. They were a race of living trees, evil, they'd devour anything
    That got within reach. Hence the "white faces" line and the " ripping through the sheep's head" line

    Who cares what it means it's fucking brutal!!!
    besides the birchmen are a norse legend of living trees that would kill travelers. I don't know for sure but that's my guess!

    MASTODON is fucking brutal can't wait to see them with dethklok in Novemeber Keep real metal alive!!
